Are you sure it's a 5 thread?
I looked at the threading diagram on the 804 and it appeared to be a 4 thread. It looked like an overlock with a safety stitch in the center.
The 5 thread looked like the number was an 814

SOURCE: Need instructions for threading Juki MO 3314

Open the font of the serger and the instructions will be printed on the serger or on the door.

Raise the presser foot and set the tensions to zero when threading.

Turn the hand wheel so the upper looper (curved one) is at it's highest point and thread it first, and then the lower looper.

With some sergers you must thread in a certain sequence. This should be indicated in the instructions on the serger.

Set the tensions back to normal ( 4 - 6), lower the presser foot and run a length of stitching to see if the threads are knitted together as they should before you start serging your project.

I am having trouble threading the needles of my Juki MO-2516M serger


Be sure you are using a needle size suitable for the thread weight you are using.

Try this method for threading needles:
Lick your index finger and swipe it across the back of the needle eye.
Aim the thread cut end above the needle eye and slide it down to the eye. It should go right through the eye.

How to thread a Juki MO 816 DD6 industrial serger, please.


Did you get a book with it? If not, buy or access one online.

Copy the threading diagram from the book:.
1. Blow diagram up to full page size on the copy machine.
2.Make as many copies as the # of threads you are going to use (3 threads=3 copies, 5 threads=5 copies etc.)
3.Buy as many colors of magic marker as the number of threads you are using. (Or borrow from your kids, the neighbors or use crayons)
4.On copy #1, using the original threading diagram, use one color of magic marker to follow the thread through its patch from the thread cone to the needle.
5.Do the same with each of the other copies: Copy #2=thread #2, Copy #3=thread #3, etc.
6.Now you should have a page for each thread as it comes off the cone.
7.Use a thread color that corresponds to the magic marker color on your page to make it clearer. After it is threaded properly, you can tie the color you plan to use and pull them through.

By using different color threads, and a good light, it is easier to see if you have missed a place or crossed a couple thread improperly.

If all else fails, try to find someone else who knows how to do it to thread it for you, then take a couple close up pictures of the inside of the machine with it threaded properly, take them to the photo shop and have a copy made to keep with your machine to refer to in the future. Good Luck! Sergers are their own nightmare to thread but once you get it down, you will be fine and love it. Juki is one of the easiest of the bunch. If you have a pair of tweezers and a couple threading wires, it sometimes helps!

Make sure you are threading the machine correctly. Make sure you are using serger thread that isn't old. Make sure you are undoing all the threads when it breaks and thread it from the beginning.

Make sure you have the right needles in their respective places. My Juki MO has two different size needles.

Good diagram showing how to thread a 4 thread Juki 644d serger we do not have a manual machine is not clear


You can download a free threading guide here - http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams/Threading_Pages/Juki_Sewing_machine_threading/Juki_MO_644_Threading_Diagram.htm

The same site also sells manuals.

Threading Tips:

Have the thread antenna at it's highest position.

Set the tensions to zero.

Have the presser foot up while threading.

When you thread a serger for the first time, or if you are having a threading problem, use a different color thread for each guide. This can quickly indicate where the problem lies.

Once the stitch is satisfactory, change to the color you prefer - but this way is the easiest - cut the thread near the thread cone and tie off with the new thread. With the tensions at zero, slowing run the serger until the new thread appears. You will need to stop as the knots approach the needles and thread them by hand.

Do the tie-off before running out of thread and this will save a lot of time and stress.

2nd needle/4th thread - threading confusion


With some sergers, but not many (singer 14u64 comes to mind), the top of the stitch will be an overedge that mates with the right needle thread, and the left needle thread will appear as a separate straight stitch. When you look at the underside of the stitch, the overedge will go all the way over to the left needle (the full width of the stitch). This is normal if you have this type of machine. Another stitch some sergers do (2/4 thread sergers) is a 2 thread chain thal looks like a lone straight stitch on both sides, and a 2 thread separate overedge.

As far as the threading of the takeup, it totally depends on your model. Always post your model number when you have questions as sergers vary greatly in design.
