Where can I download a manual for a Singer Serger 14U52A

You can usually find one somewhere on the web but you may have to pay for it if the Singer site cannot help. Do you have a local Singer shop where they can show you or any other sewing machine shop may be able to work it out for you.

Thread keeps breaking for my Serger Ultralock 14U64A

Even with the tension set correctly this can continue to happen. After consulting Singer about an issue for my wife on another machine - they suggested cleaning the thread guide with "unwaxed" dental floss. Cleared the problem right up on that machine and the Serger. Why everyone assumes that people can't read the manual and that it is the tension is beyond me. The problem is dust (from the thread) that gets into the channel for the thread. Just like when you run clothes through your dryer - lint builds up there too. Anytime you deal with thread, especially cotton, you get cotton fiber build up.

I have an older model singer serger Model 14U85 Ultralock. The chainstitch needle set screw hole has stripped. Can that whole piece be replaced on my machine?

Call Singer at 1-800-4singer and see if they can sell you that part. I am sure that they can because they do not change the parts that much on the machines. Good luck

I had to rethread my Singer Ultralock serger and now it won't sew correctly. Best I can tell the lower looper keeps coming unthreaded, but this doesn't happen until I put material in. I have rethreaded it...

I had read where someone said their lower looper tension dial had pulled apart. Sure enough, mine had too. We snapped it back together and Voila problem solved!

Could not adjust both looper thread tention on singer ultralock

When servicing these machines I have found that the cover over the tensioners needs to be removed so you can see if there is more adjusting possible. If its a newer serger you would hold the knob somewhere in the middle (4-5) and adjust the knurled part that goes through it. Many times I have had to rebuild these tensioners as they get dirty and need cleaning and adjusting. It may take many tries until you have it adjusting correctly. But it needs to be done.
