SOURCE: find a gear part to repair my Bernett 334d

Has the horizontal shaft gear (white nylon gear) inside your overlocker failed? Does it look like this?
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/horizontal-shaft-gear-bernina-bernette-50141103.aspx

My repair man obtained this part from Bernina and was able to repair this although it is a labour intensive repair requiring pulling down the whole machine to do. But the part itself was only $US38.

You can buy from sewingpartsonline as per link above.

Or you could ring Bernina head office in your country and talk to someone about it as I was initially told my machine was unrepairable as this part was not available by a local store who wanted to sell me a new one. I guess in light of the 4-5 hour repair time, this is probably a valid call if you buy a new plastic serger but I love my Bernette and felt it was worth repairing, not junking it. It is now 5 years later and still going strong since that repair. My OSMG (old sewing machine guy) Ken told me that the nylon gears sometimes will just crack, even if the machine hasn't had lots of work, just plastic ageing.

Hope this helps you - please rate me 4 thumbs up if so. Cheers

How do I set my Bernette 334D to overlock thin T-shirt material?


Thin, light-weight fabrics present some issues with sergers, ie the fabric tunnels with the stitching. Usually, it is better to use a narrow seam. Also, a stabilizer (wash-away) or even adding a strip of thin paper (toilet tissue, adding machine tape, etc) to the seam will help the fabric hold its shape when stitching. I have also sprayed & ironed heavy starch on thin fabrics to help stabilize.

Babylock Imagine serger was working fine, now light is only thing working, tried another foot pedal and still won't start? Any thoughts?


Can you manually turn the flywheel (towards you) - does the needle and loopers move then through the normal sequence?

If the answer is no, then its most likely something in the drive gear path, possibly a nylon gear inside it that has failed. This can be replaced but probably means a major dismantle of the internals.

You may want to take it to a baby lock dealer and see if they confirm that this is the fault.

I had this gear replaced in my Bernette 334D and it cost $250, part was only $25 of that charge.

I need to switch to rolled hemming and can't find my manual


Is this on a serger?

Rolled hemming on a serger is usually achieved by doing the following: thread up for three thread overlock using right hand needle. Move blade to the right to trim fabric wider (so it rolls inside the seam). Put woolly overlock thread through top looper (this gives a smooth finish to the rolled hem). Loosen off top looper and tighten up bottom looper so the bottom looper is up tight against the needle thread on the underside. Test serge to get the stitch right, then turn the stitch length down to 0.5 to close it up tight (this uses loads of thread so I usually get everything else right first, then make this final adjustment). On my Bernette 334D tensions are R-Needle - 5, Top looper 7-8 and bottom looper is 3-4. Stitch length 0.5, differential zero.

And usually you flick a small lever or change a little finger on the foot or plate where the stitch forms, there is some variation here between models. Early Elna L4 and L5 locks you had a little finger you changed with a screwdriver on the pressure foot. Bernette has a little slide mechanicism near the blade that you flick forward to engage.

Hope this is of assistance to you - I went for a 2 hour lesson on my serger when I bought it and then came home and repeated all the techniques shown and then made notes and stapled all the stitch samples into a notebook so I could remember how I did it.

Also there are some great books on Serging, Nancy Zieman is one name that springs to mind. Or try You-Tube, she has some videos up there too showing different techniques.

I have a Bernette 335ds serger and one of the needles fell out (plus I need to take the second needle out. The thread has broken in that needle a dozen times, also. I can't find my manual, and don't...


I have a Bernette 334D serger - I'll make a guess that your 335DS is similar.
There is a manual for your model for sale on www.ebay.com right now, item number is 150565998515.

Assuming your needle assembly is the same as mine, you switch off the engine, turn the flywheel until needles are at the highest point, then take the green small straight blade screwdriver from your machine kit and use it to unscrew (righty tightly, lefty loosey) the needle screws a little (never unscrew all the way out!!!) so you can remove the needles. I use my tweezers for this job as it makes holding the needles easier. You may also want to unclip the pressure foot and raise the upper blade out of the way for a bit more room.

Then slide a new needle into each holder, flat shank to the back and tighten up the needle screws again. Remember that the two needles sit at different heights from eachother so make sure each goes fully up into the needle seat, then retighten with the screwdriver.

I hope this helps you with your Bernette, I've had my 334D since 1990 and its still going strong.
