Threading problems with Huskylock 430

Yesterday, my machine was working perfectly...finishing tablecloth edges for church event. Then when I changed colors of thread, it wouldn't sew at all. I have followed diagram on machine, diagram in instruction book, still no looping at all. I can't see problems with threading. (this is not a new machine, I've used it for years with never this much trouble).

Does anyone know exactly how the different threads should be positioned under the presser foot? All the diagrams just show dangling ends. I feel like there is some detail I'm missing to make them come together to form the loops.

SOURCE: threading a husqvarna huskylock 1001L serger

Solution taken from "Handbook for Huskylock Sewing Machine Models 1001L/1000L/1000"

1. Raise the presser foot by using presser foot lever. When the presser foot is raised, the two thread tension discs in the thread tension control panel are released so that thread passes freely between them. Otherwise thread tension may not be correct.

Important! When threading the needle, always be sure to lift the presser foot lever, and also take care to thread in the proper order.

Threading order:
1. Upper looper thread (green)
2. Lower looper thread (blue)
3. Double chain stitch looper thread (purple) in case of 5 thread stitch or double chain stitch
4. Right needle thread (red)
5. Left needle thread or double chain needle thread (yellow)

Caution!
Because the left thread tension dial (yellow) is used for either the left needle or the double chain stitch needle, these needles will never be used at the same time.

Upper looper (green) sequence:
1. Thread holder (silver triangle openings attached to thread holder stand)
2. Thread guide (flat silver clips just behind thread tension disc)
3. Thread tension disc (circular knobs with numbers for tension setting)
4. Pull thread around upper looper guide and upper looper
5. Pull thread into hole of upper looper

Lower looper (blue)
Repeat 1, 2, 3.
4. Pull thread around guide (see color coded chart inside front serger cover).

Easy threading mechanism (for lower looper)
1. Pull out the lower looper threading lever
2. Thread the lower looper and position the thread on hook of the lower looper
threading lever.
3. Push the lower looper threading lever back to its basic position while
holding the end of the thread.

Caution:
When returning the lower looper threading lever, always make sure that the two
blue triangle marks (directional arrows) meet each other.

Right needle thread (red)
Left needle thread (yellow)
Important: Thread the needles after threading of lower looper and upper looper.
First raise the presser foot lever, and then thread the needle threads in order shown in color coded thread guide.

Husqvarna doesn't have a method to download instruction manuals directly from their website since they work through a dealer network. However, there are a number of online dealers and this one in particular has a manual that you can download for $5.00 or you can buy a print copy from them.

Regarding your footpedal, this company also sells accessories online. If, on the other hand, you want to find a local dealer, you can use this link:

SOURCE: Viking Lily - free motion quilting - thread loops on underside.

I need more info.
>Where is your presser fooot pressure set(1-9) it should be around 4?
>How fast are you free motioning (faster is better? from 1-10 10 being full speed.
>Is your bobbin threaded correctly (I need to cover the basics.)?
>Never never use a needle smaller than a 90/14 for free motion (I know everyone's an expert...but trust me)
After all this, it's OK to tighten your tension up on top a little when free motioning and getting eyelashes/spider webs on bottom. around 6 should do it though.

SOURCE: Thread looping on the bottom

Thread looping on the bottom means you have a problem with the top thread. In your case there is no tension on your top thread. Take all the thread out of the top and start threading over. Make sure you follow the correct path and make sure the thread goes through the tension discs. Then at the time of sewing, make sure your foot is down (this closes the tension discs and gives the thread the tension.) You may have worked on the tension setting while not realizing the thread was not in between theses discs, so also make sure the top tension disc setting is in the average before sewing.
Good luck.

(If you see loops on top, it means you have a problem with the bottom thread)

Viking Huskylock 560 ED threading diagram


Viking 560 ED Huskylock Handbook

Threading Serger this may be helpful even if it is not the same model. The sequence of threading loopers is VERY important. If you thread them out of order, be prepared to be frustrated beyond belief!!! Something else (I don't think she mentioned) is to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading your machine. This is true for sergers AND sewing machines!

I have a Husqvarna 936 huskylock which is about two years old. I have not used it much yet and yesterday I set it up to do a cover stitch for the first time. Since then I have spent hours threading...


For the cover stitch, only use a size 90 needle. Depending on the type of knit, use a ball point or stretch needle. The 936 uses standard sewing machine needles, so you can switch needles with the type of fabric, just like with a sewing machine.

Huskylock 430 - STOP BLADE FROM CUTTING/REMOVE BLADE


Yes, you should be able to just push in on the blade and flip it up out of the way. Page 22 of the machine's handbook shows how to change the blades, so you should be able to remove them the same way.

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

Huskylock 910


I received a cd with my machine showing step by step how to thread it. I put the machine beside my computer and threaded it step by step by watching the cd. One problem I had after threading it was not being able to sew a chain without the thread matting up and making a real "mess". The problem was I did not push the thread up against the machine until it clicked. That sets the tension. Try that and if you still have a problem email me and I will try to help.
