You might want to check the owners manual to make sure this is right for your machine (or let us know which machine you have), but on my Singer, there is a small screw between the two needles that must be loosened - be sure to hold the needle fragments as you do this to prevent them falling. Notice the orientation of the needle fragments as you remove them, then orient two new needles the same way the fragments were, insert them all the way into the machine and tighten the screw while holding them in place.

Serger thread breaks


1. Is the serger threaded correctly?

4. Is the tension adjusted too tightly?


5. Is the tension adjusted to accommodate thickness of thread being used?


6. Are you using inferior quality thread?


7. Is the thread feeding of the cone/spool freely?


8. Is the needle size correct for the type of fabric being used?


9. Are the needles being used the correct one for the serger?


10. If all of the above suggestions don't help then the serger needs to be checked for a timing problem at a sewing machine repair shop.

Brother 1034d serger. Seems unusually noisy (mechanically) in needle/cutter area. Not motor or belt as noise is metal parts clacking even after new needles, cleaning, oiling. Is this sound normal for...


in response to all serger, no, after my babylock serger is cleaned and serviced it runs quietly.
as for the brother, it's possible thats normal, try contacting a repair shop in your area and tell them about the serger and see what they say.
it's possible that the serger may need some type of adjustment
or a part may have broken .

My needle broke on my serger and i replaced it and now wont make stitch. please help


some times when you break a needle in a sewing machine or
serger it can cause the machine to jump time, it would be a good
idea to have the machine checked for a timing problem or to see
if when the needle broke it caused a problem with another part in
the serger.

Replacing needle on Elna Pro 905 DCX serger


Try and loosen the screw, and use a magnet to pullout the broken piece. It likely slightly bent in there so you may need a pair of tweezers as well
Good luck!

White Serger 1934D not stitching


No, Sounds like the loopers are not passing properly to pick up the thread, from off the needles.
