Question about Husqvarna Huskylock Computerized 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

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.

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.

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.

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!
