Threading the upperlooper

Run the thread in the sequence illustrated, following the green color and the numbers next to each threading point.





  1. Open the front cover by sliding to the right and guiding the top toward you.


  2. Pull the thread off the spool and directly up through the thread guide on the thread tree from back to front.

    Pull the thread about an extra 15cm (6inches) through the front of the thread tree.


  3. Pass the thread through the proper thread guide.


  4. Slide and hold the thread tension release button to the right, then pass the thread through the tension disc which is in the channel next to the green tension adjustment dial.

    Release the button.


  5. Guide the thread down the channel and pass the thread through the threading points next to the green color marks following the numerical order in the accompanying illustration.



    If the upperlooper thread breaks during sewing:

    This may be caused by the lowerlooper thread getting caught on the upperlooper.

    If this happens, lower the upperlooper by turning the hand wheel, remove the lowerlooper thread from the upperlooper, and re-thread the upperlooper from at least the tension disc.
