My Janome serger keeps stopping. It is stitching well but I constantly have to reboot or open and close the side cover. What can I do? I have already had a service recently.

i suggest you get a tech to re-time your machine. timing is complex on an overlocker and if not done correctly you will probably break a looper.

SOURCE: problems threading my janome serger

One critical hint:

You must thread the loopers BEFORE the needles, otherwise it won't stitch. Begin with upper looper, lower looper, right needle then left needle.

Testimonial: "Quick & accurate response - I am very impressed. Thank you so much."

SOURCE: Thread is knotting up on bottom of fabric causing it to stop

1.check the needle & see if it's bent--if so replace
2.lay the needle on a flat surface & roll the needle over if it doesn't roll true replace
3.check for blunt needle-if needle makes a popping sound when needle penetrates fabric
4.needle is not all way up in holder
on my mechanical sewing machine sometimes the threads come off the take up lever, that causes the thread to bunch up under something I'm working on
also check thread in bobbin

How do I fix the timing on my janome serger 9102D?


Suggest taking it for service. Timing is a tricky thing on a serger. Miscalculation could result in broken blades or loopers.

I just got a new Janome 8002d serger. Why does it make a clicking noise when I begin to serge and then it goes to straight stitching that comes unsewn.


I don't have a Janome, but you might check your threading to see if it's correct, lucky you to get a new one!!!

How do you lengthen stitch. The stitches are so close together it looks like a satin stitch. I have no manual for it. thanks!


your machine should have a stitch length dial on the right hand side above the flywheel, it might have numbers from 0.5 to 3 or 4, higher number for longer stitch (effectively this moves the foot and feed dogs faster in relation to the needles to make the stitch longer).

If you have the Serge Pro SW432 that your enquiry is linked to and you have not used a serger before, then definitely get hold of the manual, you will need it. Sergers are very different to sewing machines - once you've mastered one, its easy, but there is a learning curve.

Firstly, ALWAYS extend the thread aerial up, you'll see loads of images of sergers sitting nicely with the aerial in the lowered position, great for moving them to avoid damage. But they won't work well, a serger seams at 1500 stitches per minute and the thread streams off the cones so you need to ensure there is a good clear feed via the aerial to the tension dials.

Buy good quality thread cones and keep it out of the sun and dust. Cover your machine when not in use (lower the aerial first). You could start with white, grey and black thread as this will cover a lot of fabric prints/colours etc. To change thread colour, you will need to cut and knot on the new thread for the two loopers (right hand side cones) - do this about 6 inches above the first thread guide, and then chain off to feed these through down to the needle plate, when you see the new colour come through okay, stop. Repeat the process for the needle thread or threads (3 or 4 thead depending on what stitch you are sewing) but stop chaining when the thread knot is above the needles. Stop, loosen these tension dials and pull the thread down, cut out the knot with scissors and thread the new colour through the two needles. Use threading wires if you have them, or tweezers. Pull both these and the two looper threads together under the pressure foot, lower the foot, turn your tension dials back to 5 and chain off. The thread sequence is important, mostly top looper, bottom looper, then needles, this is so much easier demonstrated than explained.

If you can find a classroom/shop offering overlocking user lessons, go take a couple, its well worth the money. Otherwise go to you-tube and watch all the videos you can search on sergers, threading, etc.

Good luck with your serger, please respond with 4 thumbs if this has been helpful to you. :-)

I've just got janome 634d serger, how can i make the bottom of a T-shirt ? Thank you so much


If you want the bottom of the T to look like RTW with the double row of stitching, you cannot do this on a serger.

You can achieve the effect by using a twin needle, two spools of thread, bobbin and a straight stitch.

Make sure the double/twin needle will pass through the presser foot and opening in the needle plate below the presser foot.

Practice on a double layer of a scrap of the T shirt material as the tension may need to be slightly looser than the normal setting.

Coverstitching on White Speedylock serger


Your machine cannot do a cover stitch. Check the Brother website, they make a cover stitch only machine, it works much better than any of the serger/cover stitch combination machines, and it is a lot less money.
