    My 936 freezes (nothing will move) and I get an overload message. Need advice as to what to do to get it going again.

    I have a Husqvarna Viking Huskylock 936 that keeps stopping (almost seems like it's binding) and giving the message of "overloaded". I cannot get it to turn even when I crank the hand roller.

This happened the first time I used a 936. I had borrowed it from a friend. Fortunately she was with me. the dealer found it needed to be oiled in places amateurs should not go. That was all it took. Oiling all the moveable parts.

If not binding when turned by hand, motor may need brushes.

Why does my 936 serger keep showing overloaded ?


My suspicion is that Viking sergers (905, 910, 936) bind up after heavy use and years of service. In other words, they are not "lubricated for life". Can you turn the handwheel on the machine? If not (or if extremely hard), you now know what the motor was dealing with. My guess is the motor is burned out, but you need both a total overhaul of the main shaft bearing system (cleaning the bearing and relubrication), and, a new motor.
I probably should consider repairing sewing machines in my retirement.

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.

Husqvarna 936 overlockmachine, says overloaded and wont sew. what can I dotoget it started again?


What are you trying to do? It will say overloaded usually if the fabric is too think that your trying to serge on, sometimes just tapping on the foot after you have let off it will let you resume, otherwise, yes, take the fabric out and start again.

I can't seem to thread the over and under lock correctly because the pictures are so small. Please advise. Huskylock 936 Viking Serger


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.

How do I put Clutch Lever pos. on S


It's a lever on the inside front where the lower loopers are threaded. Open the front door of the machine as if you were going to thread the loopers. In the middle at the bottom is a lever that will move left and right. Move it to either S or C depending on which you want -- serger or cover stitch. Be sure to follow other steps in setting up the machine for serge vs cover stitches. If you are unsure, take it to your local husqvarna dealer for assistance. Usually they are eager to assist. You can visit the husqvarna viking website for a listing of dealers - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Good luck.

I have a Husqvarna serger and when I try to serge and cut through 3 thicknesses of sweatshirt fleece it won't cut. I have replaced the cutter and it still won't cut. The same happens when I sew on polar...


I really need to know what kind of serger you have , if it is the 905 910 or the 936 series take a look at the large headed screw that holds the knife in place. if you are doing fleece it will cause a lot of build up of lint behind this screw and not allow the knife to go all the way up and down causing it not to cut multi layers of fabric, and if this is the case it probably needs to go the an authorized tech for a thorough cleaning
