It may be difficult to solve a computer controlled machine with as many options as the 936 serger. Stepper motors control many of the functions. You can check out this video I made 4 years ago to get an idea of where to look.

SOURCE: 4 thread overlock --right needle skipping stitches

Sounds like the loopers are slightly out of line or the needle bar is twisted. Unfortunately these adjustments are not easily made. Suggest you take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
Good luck.

Good evening madam
It sounds like there is something wrong with the electrical system in your sewing machine. You can check the power and connections.
good luck

936 Huskylock needle bar does not move up and down.


First, make sure the machine is engaged to sew. some machines,
have a knob inside the flywheel on the left side that disconnect the sewing mechanism to wind a bobbin without the needle bar moving.

Huskylock 936 coverstitch will not form stitches


I just went thru the EXACT same thing, pulled up YouTube videos and discovered it was all about (1) how the LOOPER was threaded (the video taught me it is called "the puppy dogs head/ears" and that to thread it you follow the path of the ORANGE DOT (which often is combined with either blue/black, but just look for the ORANGE dot path no matter what the other color is with it) and that thread goes: "Around the puppy dog's neck and behind his ears". Honest to God this was part of my problem. (2) TENSION settings: I also discovered that even though the 936 has the adviser has all recommended settings for the stitches, you still NEED to tinker with the tensions. Specifically, I was set up for the WIDE COVERSTITCH to hem a knit skirt. I selected the KNIT MEDIUM (Auto M4) stitch and used these tensions: A needle 4, E needle 6, Looper was ok at 3. It worked like a charm and FINALLY I can do the stitch! Seriously, there are many YouTube videos (many lousy quality) that actually show and explain this stitch and how to set up your machine. Hope this helps!!! Good luck and happy sewing!

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.

Check your threading, both top and bottom, sounds like you have threaded wrong.

If your machine is hard to turn you need to look for threads which are bunched up around moving parts or it needs oil badly. This, combined with skipping stitches, indicates a need for a technician to adjust the timing and generally service the machine.
