There are 5 holes in the needle clamp. AB & E are in front for the cover stitches. The C and D holes are behind B & E. Using a dental mirror makes it much easier to see the holes.
If the C and D needles are on opposite sides of the clamp you may want to think about having a new clamp installed. These original clamps may be very hard to get the needles in and out of after a while. The modern clamp has the C & D screws both on the right side facing the front of the machine. This clamp is much easier to use. It is not inexpensive, but will save much frustration.

Look at the top of the needle where it is inserted in the needle holder. There are spaces for 4 needles - A B C and D. Most likely you are using the backmost needle positions - C & D. Look on the needle holder there are little wholes which are sctually screw holes that can be loosened and tightened using a Torx 6 screw driver (available at Sears) if you no longer have the needle changer screw driver. By turning the screw, the needle is eeither tightened or loosened. Be careful that when you loosen the needle it does not fall through the machine. Put a slip of paper on the needle plate below the needle to catch the needles when they are losened. You have a great machine in the Huskylock 936 and well worth keeping it serviced by a certified Husqvarna Viking service technician. 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.

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

I have a Husqvarna 936 huskylock which is about two years old. I have not used it much yet and yesterday I set it up to do a cover stitch for the first time. Since then I have spent hours threading...


For the cover stitch, only use a size 90 needle. Depending on the type of knit, use a ball point or stretch needle. The 936 uses standard sewing machine needles, so you can switch needles with the type of fabric, just like with a sewing machine.

I cannot get the needles to stay in my Huskvarna Huskylock 936 serger. How can I get them to stay in?


I would say it is 2 things, first you don't have the screws loosened enough to get the needles up and in far enough, then make sure you have tightened them up enough, this should solve your problem. Also, the flat of the needle goes toward the back of the machine.

Hi there, my husqvarna 936 is jamming slightly when i turn the hand wheel and when i use the pedal it works but their is a load catching noise can you help me plz


Hello, The first thing to do with a serger is to change the needles and take the thread off the machine and rethread it. The 936 can sometimes "fight" you a little when it comes to getting the needles up in all the way. It's critical that they are inserted all the way up in the needle clamp. Check to also make sure the N/R lever is in the N position. Check the needle plate, are the "needle like" pins still attached to the plate? If your serger jammed, sometimes the thread breaks the pin supports out of the plate. They are very important when it comes to stitch formation.

If your machine is hard to turn you need to look for threads which are bunched up around moving parts or it needs oil badly. This, combined with skipping stitches, indicates a need for a technician to adjust the timing and generally service the machine.
