Go to their website: http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/ko/421.htm, choose Overlocks in the top left sidebar, and then select 936. Over on the right in the main text section for the sergers, select the red link to start the presentation.

Huskylock 936 will not form a 4-thread overlock stitch


It may be difficult to solve a computer controlled machine with as many options as the 936 serger. Stepper motors control many of the functions. You can check out this video I made 4 years ago to get an idea of where to look.

Huskylock 936 coverstitch will not form stitches


I just went thru the EXACT same thing, pulled up YouTube videos and discovered it was all about (1) how the LOOPER was threaded (the video taught me it is called "the puppy dogs head/ears" and that to thread it you follow the path of the ORANGE DOT (which often is combined with either blue/black, but just look for the ORANGE dot path no matter what the other color is with it) and that thread goes: "Around the puppy dog's neck and behind his ears". Honest to God this was part of my problem. (2) TENSION settings: I also discovered that even though the 936 has the adviser has all recommended settings for the stitches, you still NEED to tinker with the tensions. Specifically, I was set up for the WIDE COVERSTITCH to hem a knit skirt. I selected the KNIT MEDIUM (Auto M4) stitch and used these tensions: A needle 4, E needle 6, Looper was ok at 3. It worked like a charm and FINALLY I can do the stitch! Seriously, there are many YouTube videos (many lousy quality) that actually show and explain this stitch and how to set up your machine. Hope this helps!!! Good luck and happy sewing!

Do you have a manual, project book or anytrhing that gives information on how to use the features of the 936 surger?


I would suggest that you contact Husqvarna Viking to purchase a manual for your 936 serger, their contact details are here.
http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us/406.htm

You could also get lots of general sewing info from Debbie Cosgrove at http://sewing.about.com/od/sergersoverlock/ss/serger.htm sewing.about.com is a fantastic source of information on sewing techniques, sewing machines, sergers and projects too.

Sergers are quite differernt to a sewing machine and there are plenty purchased, used once or twice, then put away or sold because they are a bit difficult. But like any new skill learnt, taking a class and learning hands on is so much better than trying to figure out from a manual so if you can find a local Husky dealership, I'd enquire about an "intro to serger" type class, well worth the money and time.

Yours will probably do a three thread overlock, 4 thread overlock and rolled hem stitch, these three seams will cover a variety of sewing tasks and applications. You can seam knits and lycra with the 4 thread, and neaten the raw edges of just about all fabrics with a three thread. The rolled hem allows you to do a small covered edge which covers the fabric cut edge wrapping the thread around it closely. Beautiful on very light weight fabric edges like ruffles and frills where you have yards of fabric to neaten, much quicker than turning edge twice and straight stitching it.

There are other techniques with a serger such as sewing stretched elastic onto fabric, sewing over nylon fishing line to give a fluted edge or stitching over a string of beads. These are best done with a special foot for this purpose, elasticator or beading foot. You can also use decorative threads through the loopers to give an attractive finish.

There are several good sewing with a serger books on the market, Singer does one but there are other great ones too. You could always borrow one from the library before committing to buying it.

I have a Huskylock 936 Serger and used it last week, no problem. I changed the threads for a new product and one thread came out and had to rethread. I know you have to thread the upper looper first then...


Recommend you remove all the threads and rethread from the beginning. ALWAYS RAISE THE PRESSER FOOT when threading and thread the upper looper first, the lower looper second. Sergers sometimes are temperamental about threading. When in doubt, start over from the beginning.

I could not find a manual for your machine, but did find this video - it starts a little silly, but the instructions are presented very well.

Needles hit the arm when stitching


Make sure you have completed all the steps to convert to cover stitch. There is a "clutch" to move from S to C for coverstitch that is located on the inside front of the machine where you thread the lower loopers. Make sure you have "locked down" the looper as instructed. There is a VHS and a DVD available from the Husqvarna Viking dealer. 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.

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.
