Your problem may be twofold. One, the motorbelt may be too tight. Remove the sidecover and loosen the two screws on the motor. Adjust the belt tension in such a way that if you oress with your thump halfway between the motor pulley and the handwheel, the belt should give way app. 15mm.

Check if this help. If not, you need to wash your machine with white spirits to get rid of old oil and grease. Best done by a technician.

SOURCE: Hi, I have a huskylock 905 NOT computerized and

Sounds like the D needle is hitting something in the loopers and an adjustment needs to be made. The adjustments are ever so slightly. It could be that the needle bar is twisted causing the D needle to hit. It could be the looper is not within the specs for proper operation, etc. Suggest you take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service.

I have seen some models with a diagram for threading. Look inside the cover, in front of the machine.

Thread coming out of eye of right needle on huskylock 910


Hi:

Are you sure it's coming out? Or is it breaking at the needle?

Try replacing the right needle and do a test stitch. If it still comes out of the needle... loosen that threads tension a little.

I have just been given a huskylock 341. The tension is off. How do I correct this?


Have you used an overlocker before? If not, I'd suggest that you obtain a user manual for it as they are completely different to a sewing machine and at some point you will need to rethread it. You can purchase one from here
http://pages.sewing-machine-manuals.com/173/PictPage/3923709707.html

This machine makes three and four thread seams, which is a combination of two needles and two loopers. For the three thread seam you can use either the left or right needle which gives you different sized seams. For the four thread you use both needles, one goes through the middle of the seam and the other is on the left side securing the seam. tally_girl_70.jpg On most overlockers you are able to move the cutting blade too and this will reduce or increase the amount of fabric being trimmed from the right side.

This page http://sewing.about.com/od/sergersoverlock/ss/serger.htm will give you some general information on sergers/overlockers too.

So adjusting tension is a matter of changing the tension on the top and lower looper threads to close up against the cut edge, or moving the blade over to make the seam a little wider or narrower. You may also need to finess the left needle tension so that the seam doesn't pull apart, I always test serge two layers and then pull open from the right side and see if the needle thread is showing (it will show a little bit but you dont want it so loose that it pulls open. Only tighten the needles in very small increments though, as you'll break threads and needles if you turn them up too tight.

Hard to explain without seeing what your machine is seaming now. But as a rule of thumb, start with all four tension dials (or 3 if doing a three thread seam) on 5. If the tension dials are correctly calibrated then this should give you a pretty good seam. You may wish to lengthen the stitches, I usually work with stitch length of 2.5 (same as your sewing machine stitch length) Stitch length will be a dial on the right side beside the flywheel or in front of the blade area. The blade adjustment should be a little knob near the blade area too. There will be a lower fixed blade and a moving upper blade which sits against the lower one, they work like scissors to trim the fabric. So to adjust the blade, you will need to take the pressure off the upper blade, then wind the knob to move it left or right.

Different weights of fabric will behave differently on the overlocker so you do need to adjust tension for each new project. For example, if seaming a jersey knit you'd use a four thread seam, this gives elasticity and strength and you can join two garment pieces with this seam. You'd probably make a 6mm or 7mm wide seam, the left needle will secure the fabric and the loopers will encase the fabric smoothly while the right needle secures them and gives extra strenth to the seam.

But on organza for example, I would make a very narrow three thread seam using the right needle as the organza will roll inside the overlocking if you cut the fabric too wide.

And on something like curtains I would neaten the edge with a wide 3 thread seam using the left needle to get a very wide seam, the fabric wont roll so you'd need to loosen the two loopers a little to smoothly encase the cut edge.
tally_girl_71.jpg For example, on this image above you can see that the looper threads are laying a little off the edge of the fabric in places, particularly the lower looper, (the side that looks like Y's where you can't really see the middle needle thread), so I would tighten the lower looper about .5 on its dial, then test again.

I hope that this makes sense to you, you will need to test serge, and adjust one dial at a time, test again and look at the result, then maybe adjust another thread until you are getting a smooth looking seam.

My Bernette 203 will not cut the material or thread. I need to know the correct placement of the cutting knives.


First to see if the top blade is pressing against the lower blade when it goes past to make the cut.
You should be able to push the top blade to the right and have it spring back to the left. Do that to see if there is a small amount of presser on the lower blade.

Next, the cutting part of the top blade should drop just under the lower blade buy about 2 mil.

Also the lower blade should be level with the needle/stitch plate.

Blades also may need sharpened. The top one can be done with just about any sharpening tool but the botom is carbide so you will need a dimond wheel to sharpen it

Hope this helps

How to thread huckylock 901 serger


The picture diagram works the best for this, it tells you how to tread for every different stitch that you want to perform. You have to thread it in different ways for every stitch so it is difficult to tell you in writing. If you visit your local Viking dealer they would be able to make you a copy and I'm sure show you how right there.

Sharpen the cutting blades


You really can't sharpen them...you have to buy new ones.

Hi, I have a huskylock 905 NOT computerized and it's making a "clunking" noise while sewing and then the "D" thread breaks. I've re-threaded many times, changed thread, changed needles, adjusted tention...


Sounds like the D needle is hitting something in the loopers and an adjustment needs to be made. The adjustments are ever so slightly. It could be that the needle bar is twisted causing the D needle to hit.

HUSKYLOCK 901


Sometimes the thread tension needs to be cleaned out. I put a smal screw driver in where the silver tension guides are (between the dials) and open them up and wiggle them a little bit.
If the machine is cutting theads and or not catching threads on the back the timing may need to be adjusted.

What type of stitch are you trying to do?
