My serger is leaving marks on the fabric...little lines like from the feed dogs. I have cleaned, checked everything and cleaned again. I've also tried several different fabrics.


This sounds like too much presser foot pressure.
You can reduce the pressure on the foot by turning the knob on top of your serger counter clock wise

I have a Singer serger pro4d that the wheel on the side is hard to move and when it sews its sluggish. What is wrong with it?


It is SEIZED!! Take it in for service. Sergers should be seviced annually as they are notorious for seizing. It's an easy fix and your machine will be unrecognizeable upon it's return

Baby lock serger motor slows down after sewing 20 minutes. Why?


Call your local service shop. Baby Locks in closets for years usually have this problem The manual recommends annual maintenance by a pro, and they will oil the internal lobes of the feed dog apparatus. It cannot be oiled from the outside, nor with covers off, but must be taken apart. If those lobes lose the oil and heat up you will feel "surging" then slowing repeatedly -- fast then slow then fast etc -- until the lobes over heat and sort of weld themselves to that small barrel looking case. So a Baby Lock can sew, then temporarily be sluggish then later slow till sluggish; and at worst, seem to be doing everything right BUT not advancing the cloth -- that's when the worst damage is done and professional repair is needed. In PA might cost $150 to fix. $70 in parts; $80 in labor (2012 prices)
Been there, done that.

Just took my new serger out of the box, the wheel will NOT turn, no matter how hard I try it is stuck. How do I get it to turn??? I tried to loosen the screw, that didn't help. Yes I am NEW to sergers but...


Contact Brother. If this is a brand new Serger, it's under warranty. And they may have some info that will help!! Check your book there's a telephone number in there.

JUKI MO 134 SERGER


How to Thread Juki MO-134 Serger from watching lady at Lyles. Turn upper blade up. Push in first then turn up.It makes threading easier. Blue Thread upper looper first. Pull thread through tension knob. Don'tjust lay it there. (She thought that is what I must have done) Orange Thread lower looper next. Pull thread through tension knob as inthreading upper looper. Adjust lower looper so it is right nextto upper looper so that their points are almost together and directly belowsewing needles. Lower looper will be in front of upper looper (I believe). With tread from upper looper pulledback, slightly lift lower looper above upper looper and thread. I think this isright. Pull thread back with other thread. Tension is the key. Remember that. Yellow: Thread left needle first.Remember tension. Pull thread through curled wire on left side of needle arm. Green: Thread right needle. Rememberabout tension. Pull thread through curled wire on right side of needle arm. b> Note: Before sewing turn the wheel tomake sure the stitches are going together correctly.
