I have a brand new brother's serger 1034D.. Its new.. as in never been used but once but it's not in warranty. It's making a grinding noise. I've liked it and is clean. Any ideas what's wrong??

Could be that since it has set for years without use or maintenance, the old oil has dried out and the motor is straining to run the machine without sufficient lubrication. Trying to run the machine in its present condition could damage the motor. Your machine very likely just needs a thorough oiling (1-2 drops of fresh good quality serger oil) every place that metal rubs on metal. (Sergers usually take a lighter-weight clear oil--different from what sewing machines would use.) You should probably throw out the oil that came with the machine. It is probably old and should not be used in your machine.

A serger requires much more frequent oiling (the moving parts behind the front door, ie the looper mechanics, etc.) than a sewing machine. In addition, about every year I take the bottom off my serger and lube the moving metal parts inside with Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube. It has a whole different sound after getting some TLC!

To keep your serger operating for years, be sure to regularly clean and apply a couple drops of lube as recommended in the owner's manual (maintenance section).

If the timing is "out", you will not be able to form the chain a sample to see that you have all 4 or 3 threads involved in forming a complete stitch.........if you do, then it is not timing.

Singer serger merrittlock14u44 makes a noise

Do you regularly oil your serger? Sergers need frequent oiling with fresh good quality sewing machine oil. Consult the owner's manual and apply 1-2 drops every place (usually where metal rubs against metal) indicated and do it frequently. Since your machine is older, it could probably use a good overall service from a technician involving disassembling and lubing the internal parts as well.

I just got a new Janome 8002d serger. Why does it make a clicking noise when I begin to serge and then it goes to straight stitching that comes unsewn.

I don't have a Janome, but you might check your threading to see if it's correct, lucky you to get a new one!!!

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 .

Pfaff Hobbylock 788 Serger won't work

Does it still make noise? Maybe it needs a new belt or just some oil?

There is no fuse in the BLE8 Evolve. If the bulb burns out it may appear to have no power.
When you use the foot control does it move or make any noise? If it moves or makes noise make sure it is not in the locked threading position. Change the bulb.
