Question about Brother Lay-In Thread Serger Mechanical Sewing Machine

Brother 3034D lock serger locked up

I was serging when my serger suddenly locked up. It made a clunking noise when starting up from the first day I got it. I think something was loose parts on the lower looper and just fell out too far to clunk back in. I'm acquainted a little with it's mechanics since I changed a lower looper on a serger before. I fear having to deal with getting things back into timing, but will do what necessary to get it running again.

    looking at the service manual is not the answer. It contains nothing about a machine locking up.

SERGER:
A serger can do a lot of things. Frequently, they are used to finish raw seams and hems, but there's so much more they can do. It's mostly just a matter of experimenting and deciding how to apply it to your projects. I've even serged a strip quilt.

You can download workbooks and work through them. (This is a Bernina work book site, but sergers frequently can do similar stitches.)

Does anyone have a suggestion? I have threaded the machine correctly but I cannot get the machine to sew.


You have a nice serger, so let's start with some basics:
Is your serger cleaned?
Go back to the instruction book and set the entire machine to the factory settings. For example, set all the dials to tension 4. Use quality thread which is made for your spool holder. Usually cones of thread work best. Use an appropriate fabric, not sheer, not very heavy drapery fabric. Make absolutely sure it's threaded properly. Finally, make sure all the threads are under the presser foot.....then start serging. If the serger still won't serge without tangling, it might be good to have it serviced. I find that buying a new serger is more useful than having a worn out one serviced. Good luck!

Brother 1034d serger. Seems unusually noisy (mechanically) in needle/cutter area. Not motor or belt as noise is metal parts clacking even after new needles, cleaning, oiling. Is this sound normal for...


in response to all serger, no, after my babylock serger is cleaned and serviced it runs quietly.
as for the brother, it's possible thats normal, try contacting a repair shop in your area and tell them about the serger and see what they say.
it's possible that the serger may need some type of adjustment
or a part may have broken .

I need a replacement manual for Babylock Xscape BL66


You will need to contact a BL dealer to order a manual, if any are available. This model has been replaced.

There is a threading guide in on the inside of the door on the front of the serger.

Raise the presser foot and set the tension controls to zero.

Turn the handwheel until the upper looper (curved looper) is at it's highest point - there may be a mark on the side of the serger and handwheel for aligning to this point.

Thread the upper looper first, then the lower looper, then the needles.

Pull the threads under the presser foot and to the left side of the serger.

Set the tensions back to 4 - 6 setting, lower the presser foot and stitch a chain before serging fabric.

You may be able to find a free manual download at the Brother website for a similar product.
