Question about Sewing Machines

Open Question

I have been using Husqvarna sewing machines and overlockers for at least 45 years, My first machine was burgundy I cant remember the model it lasted me well over 30 years then I was told It could not be fixed any more, I replaced it 2 years ago with a Scandinavia 200 model, and unfortunately have been very dissapointed with this machine, I have had it in to be fixed around 12 times, I believe it to be this particular machine and not necessarily this model, I have difficulty sewing elastics, and at times stretch materials, one day it will work then the next day it wont. I become very unhappy because when I am ready to sew, I have to take it in to be fixed, sometimes it comes back and is no better. I even send samples of materials that I am using because they always test it on non stretch fabrics. I also have a Huskylock 4600, which I have had continual problems with tension, I have also had to send it away regularly to be fixed. I do a fair amount of sewing at home, so do need reliable machines. My Huskylock is about six years, but I am sure their life should be more than that, at my first machines lasted over 20 years. I am in the process of looking around now for two more machines in another brand as I dont seem to have much luck now with Husqvarna's, which dissapoints me as I have always been happy with my old machines and they have been excellent machines.

SOURCE: Huskylock 435 will not stop overlocking

There is a supressor, probably inside the case of the foot control, less likely in the body of the machine, that has burned out.......you may notice an acrid plastic/burnt odour near the source....sniff at the pedal or the rear of the machine to try to ident the location.
It is not actually necessary for the operation of the machine, it only stops interference if sewing while someone else is watching or listening to TV and Radio.
If you do not feel confident to undo, locate and remove this component I strongly suggest a quick trip to the repair shop (phone first, say the supressor is blown and ask for a quote)
You could also have a general service at the same time if it has been a while and is within your budget.

SOURCE: timing on a Huskylock 535D surger

the eyes of the needles must line up with lower looper as they pass (timing) the distance between the needle and the looper must be exact. No distance between them and not touching. yep, that tight. they shouldnt move the needle even the slightest amount as they pass each other, yet no space between them.

How old is the husqvarna huskylock overlocker model 680DE


The age of the serger is not what is relevent. How much was it used is the relevant question. Call HV customer service and give them the SN and they can tell you when it was made.

Huskylock 936 will not form a 4-thread overlock stitch


It may be difficult to solve a computer controlled machine with as many options as the 936 serger. Stepper motors control many of the functions. You can check out this video I made 4 years ago to get an idea of where to look.

Good evening madam
It sounds like there is something wrong with the electrical system in your sewing machine. You can check the power and connections.
good luck

I bought an empisal overlocker and sewing machine more than two years ago at Game Centution. I used the sewing machine a few times. I tried to use the overlocker but without success and just put it away...


Hi Bonita
Can you use the sewing machine? Does it work? I am also thinking of buying one but not sure if I should. They're on sale now at Makro for R899 =- what did you pay for yours?

Rethreading my juki overlock


threading industrial overlockers can be very tricky do you not know anyone who ever worked one in a factory because showing is much easier than telling

Huskylock SL3003 Overlocker


I also have a Huskylock SL 3003 which I have not used for many years. As I usually keep the manual with the particular item, and there was no manual with the machine, I presume there was not a manual for this machine. (I also found Husqvarna useless!)

There is a website which copies manuals for sewing machines and I have asked them if they can find the manual for the SL 3003. As yet I have not had a reply. I only requested this on 1st September, so am still waiting hopefully. You may also wish to use this website: www.sewing-machine-manual.com or relics.com

Also, on the front of the machine is a slide with a thumb indent. Push this to the right and it will release. On the machine inside this door are the instructions for threading.

Good luck
