I have a brand new brother's serger 1034D.. Its new.. as in never been used but once but it's not in warranty. It's making a grinding noise. I've liked it and is clean. Any ideas what's wrong??


Could be that since it has set for years without use or maintenance, the old oil has dried out and the motor is straining to run the machine without sufficient lubrication. Trying to run the machine in its present condition could damage the motor. Your machine very likely just needs a thorough oiling (1-2 drops of fresh good quality serger oil) every place that metal rubs on metal. (Sergers usually take a lighter-weight clear oil--different from what sewing machines would use.) You should probably throw out the oil that came with the machine. It is probably old and should not be used in your machine.

A serger requires much more frequent oiling (the moving parts behind the front door, ie the looper mechanics, etc.) than a sewing machine. In addition, about every year I take the bottom off my serger and lube the moving metal parts inside with Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube. It has a whole different sound after getting some TLC!

To keep your serger operating for years, be sure to regularly clean and apply a couple drops of lube as recommended in the owner's manual (maintenance section).

My 1034d brother serger froze up. How do I unfreeze it


If it is a mechanical (not computerized) model, it most likely needs a good cleaning and oiling. (Use only good quality serger oil or Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube.)

Or it could have some threads hung up somewhere.

May be best to take it for service.

Remember, a serger requires frequent cleaning and oiling to keep it operating--more frequent than a sewing machine because there are so many moving parts and so much more lint produced.

My serger seized up


Do you frequently oil your serger? Sergers require more frequent oiling and cleaning than sewing machines to keep them going. Be sure to use the correct oil for your machine.

It could have some threads wrapped somewhere that is keeping the machine from operating.

The other problem could be that it is out of time. If so, take it for service.

I bought a second hand babylock eclipse serger, the pproblem is the width sticth adjusment is stack, how do I slove it.


Just guessing the machine may need cleaning and oiling. Consult the owner's manual. Sergers usually require frequent oiling (more than sewing machines) because of the speed and complexity of moving parts in a serger. Apply 1-2 drops of fresh, good quality oil for your machine--some brands use a specific weight oil.

If in doubt, take it for service. It could probably use a very good check-up by a professional anyway. At least then you will be starting out with a tuned up, working machine.

cleaning your serger (avoid using compressed air as sometimes it will force lint and debris farther into the machine!)

Since your issue is with the stitch width function, you may want to focus more on that mechanism and work at getting it released. Sometimes applying heated air from a handheld hairdryer will loosen stuck mechanisms.

Singer serger merrittlock14u44 makes a noise


Do you regularly oil your serger? Sergers need frequent oiling with fresh good quality sewing machine oil. Consult the owner's manual and apply 1-2 drops every place (usually where metal rubs against metal) indicated and do it frequently. Since your machine is older, it could probably use a good overall service from a technician involving disassembling and lubing the internal parts as well.

A Whitesuperlock? 2000 serger I got the tensions to work but really need to know where to put oil as it has been sitting 5 yrs so I am sure she would like some nice new oil.....


Search the internet for:
Manufacturer + Model + the word "Manual"

Well, here is a PDF you can download:
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CB4QFjAAahUKEwjliMWvpPDIAhVD6GMKHVDcBg0&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.singerco.com%2Fuploads%2Fdownload%2F984_sl-2000-ats-wb-a-x.pdf&usg=AFQjCNGzGYBpmY2GzqHAoo37jtQ8y8rngA&cad=rja

From the instructions, it doesn't need a lot of oiling, but it does say (page 8) to apply oil periodically to put 1-2 drops of oil on all metal moving parts.

Use ONLY fresh, good quality oil made for your machine. The oil you have is probably 5 yrs old and has turned dark. If so, throw it out and buy a new bottle. Apply only a couple of drops of oil in each spot according to the instructions. Oil collects dirt and lint, so if you use too much, your serger will be more difficult to clean when debris sticks to the excess oil. Clean and oil your serger frequently to keep it running well. When you become familiar with the sound of your machine, you will recognize when it starts to make more noise than usual and know that it needs some TLC.

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 .
