Husqvarna viking overlocker Huskylock 936

My machine will not sew, however it seemed there was a cotton jam. I have cleaned the machine and re-threaded it, but I'm getting an "OVERLOAD" message. Could you help me please? Cheers, Beverley Partridge

SOURCE: I have a Husqvarna Viking quilt 870 sewing

The overload message is usuall due to a bind in the mechanical function of the machine. When the motor has an extra "load" caused by something like a tight belt or dry bearing, it "overloads" the motor and the error message is displayed. It is doubtful your problem is computer related. Either way a trip to your service tech is required. If you continue to sew with it, you do run the risk of possible damage to some other parts of your machine. The computer portion of your Husqvarna is guaranteed for 5 years and the mechanical parts carry a 20 or 25 year guarantee depending on when you purchased your machine. A copy of your bill of sale from a Husqvarna Viking dealer or a stamped warranty card is the proof of purchase needed to obtain warranty replacement of parts. Labor is only guaranteed for 1 year.

SOURCE: Sewing thick fabric and machine won't send it through

Sergers are not really meant to sew very thick material. The blades have a maximum amount of range, or thickness that they can reach to cut. If you go outside that range, get ready for a big repair bill! You can break loopers and even the needle plate when you "push" a serger. My advise would be to use you sewing machine for the, "pounding" work. The type of material matters too, A thick Quilt like fabric can be sewn becatuse it's not dense material. A thinner harder denim could max out at 3 layers because of it"s hard finish. If the fabric you're sewing isn't dense like, you could just need new knives.

SOURCE: My Husqvarna Huskylock will not catch the 3 thread

First thing to try is a new needle and make sure it is inserted into the needle holder all the way! There is a small opening in the needle clamp. Look closely at it when you're inserting the needle and you will see the top of the needle through that hole as it reaches it's top position. Also check the needle plate, are there 2 small needle like pins in the plate? If one of them has broken out of the plate, you'll have a hard time getting it to sew correctly. If it is missing one, you need to buy a new plate. If all of that is correct and it still doesn't sew properly (and you're sure it's threaded right), a trip to your service tech will be needed.

SOURCE: I can't seem to thread the over and under lock

I could not find a manual for your machine, but did find this video - it starts a little silly, but the instructions are presented very well.

SOURCE: I will like to know the difference beetwen

Both machines are very close as to what stitches/functions they do. However the 1001 is older and way past the 5 year warranty period which makes getting parts more difficult. If I had to choose between the two, the 936 wins hand down!

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.

How do you sew with three needles on huskylock 936. I can't seem to find a third spot for a needle.


A 936 has 5 needle positions. C & D are in the back position and AB&E are in the front position. Check your user manual for diagram. you can view, print, or download the manual from the viking website - http://www.manuals.husqvarnaviking.com

Huskylock 936 will not form a 4-thread overlock stitch


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.

Huskylock 936 error code


This will also occur if the "needles" and "loopers" lock up as though threads are tangled and binding the machine. If needles and loopers move freely when manually turning the handwheel counter clockwise, you probably need to 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.
