Open Question

Serger worked great at one setting for half my project, now doesn't

A bernina tech set my funlock 006d and initially it worked on all 4 edges of the fabric I chose for napkins. But after making about 10 napkins, two of the edges began not looping over the underside of the napkin, leaving a frayed, messy overlap edge to two sides of the completed napkin. The tech set the lower looper at 8.5; upper looper at 2 and right needle at 6 when it initially worked. Thanks for your help on helping me reestablish new settings that will solve my problem..diane

How do I get a balanced tension with my Elna 624 overlocker?


The best way is to thread with 4 separate colors of thread and then studying the stitch result. With the 4 colors, you can easily tell which thread tension is "off" and whether it should be tightened or loosened. However, a serger is not like a sewing machine where you can set the tension and use that setting for most projects. With a serger, a change in one or a couple of thread tensions will create a totally different stitch.

For most machines, there is a mark at the midway point on each tension control that is the "optimal" tension for a 4-thread overlock. HOWEVER, every machine differs, so these settings may need to be tweaked.

You may want to download the serger workbooks at this site (Bernina), and work through each of the stitches. Make notes in the workbook as to how you have set up your machine to get the best of each stitch. This will be a great reference manual for many years.

I have been given a Bernina funlock 007d and would like to be shown how to thread the machine, I live in Parklands Cape Town


Although not your model, the models do not change much. Just be sure to raise the presser foot when you thread the machine and thread each thread in the proper order (upper looper first, lower looper second with thread draped over the upper looper, then the needles).
