SOURCE: lower looper threader

check to make sure it is not wraping around the upper looper. just stitch without the material and you will see it. but then you must rethread the upper looper and the lower looper again in the right order. hope this helps

Toyota overlocker sl3000 ; 3rd thread keeps snapping. How do I stop this ?

Third thread--is that the upper looper? Remove all the threads from the machine. Clip them below the thread tree, RAISE the presser foot, and then pull all 4 threads down through the needle. (Never Pull Up!!)

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot.
Rethread beginning with the Upper Looper, then Lower Looper, then the needles. Be sure to ALWAYS thread in this order!! (On most newer machines, when threading the Lower Looper, always finish with the Lower Looper "draped" over the top of the Upper Looper.)

If a thread breaks, remove the threads and start over from the beginning as trying to fish a thread through the existing threads very SELDOM works.

Verify each thread path is correct.

When threading each thread and to insure the threads are seated in the tensioners, give each thread an extra little tug when going through the tension disk.

Be sure to oil your machine frequently to keep it operating smoothly!

I need help in good tension for rolled hem in empisal 606D overlocker

Your owner's manual should have instructions for rolled hem settings. My Bernina manual has a the following settings:
Medium weight fabric
80/12 Universal needle
3 cones serger thread
Upper looper 3-5
Lower looper 7-9
Left needle (no thread)
Right needle 3-5
Stitch length 1-1.5
Cutting width 2-3
Differential feed N

Can use woolly thread in the upper looper, but the tension may need to be loosened since the woolly nylon thread will stretch.

Correct threading for 4 th. Juki ind. overlocker

Overlockers and or Sergers are ALWAYS threaded the same way. Upper looper, Lower looper, right needle, left needle. If you have a model number for your Juki we might be able to find you more information.

The best way to figure out tension problems is to thread each thread in a different color so you can determine which thread is giving you problems.

These machines can be frustrating and EVERY time the thread breaks you MUST start the threading problem from the beginning... upper looper, lower looper, right needle left needle.

How do I oil my Janome 664d overlocker

Does your overlocker have a threading diagram on the inside of the front cover? Often this will also show a couple of red dots where you need to oil.

Obviously always best to consult the manual if you have it; I haven't been able to find an image of the threading or oiling diagram for your machine.

If it doesnt have this diagram and you don't have a manual then I would hazard a guess and say that you need to oil the loopers where they move through another metal part. So open up the front and have a look at the lower looper mechanisim, manually turn the flywheel to move the looper and you should be able to see what I mean. The lower looper will move back and forwards through a metal socket piece and the looper bar may look lubricated on each side. So give the metal holding bit a drop and the oil should work into it. There may be a similar looking bit for the top looper, have a look and give it a drop of oil.

Some overlockers will have an oiling point at the back of the sewing table, it may be a little hole marked with red paint.

Threading an Empisal Overlocker - Model S4D

All sergers thread the same way and sergers have to be threaded in a certain order. I made a jingle out of it...
upper looper
lower looper
right needle
left

It would be best to have a tweezers handy to help with the thread and threading.

always be sure the lower looper thread goes over the top of the upper looper then out the back. I would be surprised if your thread guides are not color coded.
If you look at the top thread guides or the spools. First from left to right thread the 3rd spool, then the fourth spool. Then you thread the right needle (the second spool) then the left needle (1st spool.
The lower looper can be tricky because you have to thread it from the back of the looper to the front.
Pull the threads out the back from under the foot. Then go ahead and run it slow watching to see if it starts making a chain. It should. If not do it over again.
Good luck

Singer overlocker

Most likely is the left looper thread is trapping the needle threads.

Remove the threads and start over in this sequence....

Left looper - right looper - left needle - right needle.

If you thread the needles before the lower looper, the needle thread wrapped over the looper will be under the looper thread and will never be free to form a stitch, so the threading sequence is critical.
