I'm trying to help a friend thread her Singer Profinish serger and the manual instructions leave a lot to be desired. Any recommendations?
Have you looked to see if anyone has done a video on youtube? I have a BabyLock Imagine, so not sure that I could help you but will try if you think that it would help.
Thanks, Lisa, we did find a YouTube video that was some help, and finally got it threaded. We were having a hard time with access to harder to reach elements, and the visibility was bad. Then missed getting the thread well seated in the tensions, so adjusting wasn't getting it. Got it now, and I hope she'll be able to get lots done...and be glad she bought this machine.
I've been her "go-to" for sewing issues, and when I posted and had such a quick response, she may be adding this message board to the list, too. Thanks so much.
Good to hear you got it going. When you speak of hard to access, I assume lower loopers? I cannot thread my Bernina without the long fine threaders from Clotide. Well worth their cost, which isn't much...Joyce
Yes, it was the lower looper that gave us most trouble. My machine opens at the left to access that area...this machine, it looks like you have to get a phillips screwdriver out & open the machine to get there...we didn't and managed to slip the thread into a spot with a tweezers. Visibility was horrible! She got this machine because someone told her it was easy to thread. HAH!
Not sure the threader would have been any better, but it'd be worth a try. Thanks.

Was it unthreaded accidentally or did the thread break. Or did she just totally unthread it?
In case she unthreaded it or it was new and for some reason had no thread in it...
Clip the threads at the spools.
Remove the old spools and set the new thread in place. Tie the new thread to the "old" thread.
Clip the thread(s) at the needle(s).
Pull the needle thread(s) through. Thread the needles with the new color.
Pull the looper threads.
Hold all four threads and run the machine making a thread chain - or serge a short piece of fabric.
That's how I do it.
Thank goodness my machine has a color-coded path if a thread breaks, but that last looper requires a flashlight and an angled pair of tweezers.
Does this hat make my butt look big?
