I have been working all day to try and get my serger to stitch a 4 thread cover stitch and have nothing to prove it but most of all don't want to claim defeat. I have a JUKI MO-735 serger which I haven't used for a while (a year or so) and wanted to use it to sew a cover stitch on a T-shirt. Read the instructions, watched YouTube videos, other videos and read not only my instruction booklet but others on the internet and have not been able to diagnose the problem.
Left most needle isn't caught by the cover stitch looper so my 4 thread cover stitch turns into a 3 thread cover stitch.
THINGS I HAVE DONE:
Changed all the needle to no avail
Left a 4" piece of thread hang from the looper and closed the left side compartment-didn't stitch the left most stitches
When the looper thread came up through the feed dogs and I left it up there to try stitching again-no stitches
Started by turning the wheel by hand and had the needles go through the material and sit at the lowest point then pressed the presser foot to start stitching-still no left most stitching
Checked all the tensions, Stitch length, differential...nothing.
What can possibly be the problem? HELP!
