White serger skips stitches

734D Superlock --- always very reliable, but now it's skipping stitches. I had it in for repairs, but the tune-up didn't last. I have put two brand new needles in it, and followed the threading directions to the letter. Also tried adjusting the tensions. I am tryng this out on cotton fabric, well-loaded with sizing. Nothing seems to help. What is wrong?

Make sure the chain stitch thread is threaded exactly as it should be, make doubly sure the thread comes off the bobbin vertically and runs through all eyes smoothly. Any faults in the threading causes extra tension at the needle despite what the tension is set on.
If this is not the cause then the needle depth and the looper timing needs checking.

SOURCE: I have a white superlock 228 jaguar serger problems with right needle

Couple of things I could think of: tension disks need cleaning, there is a site that tells how to clean them, maybe 2 as I recall. Other thing is it is a much older serger, (I have one I am slowly working on to bring up to working level), so it could be that a tension spring internally has lost its tension. It might need a trip to the repair man if that is the case. Another thing is are you using correct needles for the machine? Have you changed them recently? Even new needles can be bad, so if you have to change three times to triple check it can be worth it.

SOURCE: skip stitch

The three most obvious causes (other than that of the machine possibly being slightly out of time) are:

1) Too small of a needle size - increase the size.

2) A needle that has a flaw / defect - change the needle.

3) Needle not inserted correctly, either not pushed all the way up into the needle bar, or not installed facing the correct place. On this machine, the small "scarf" in the needle (an indent just above the eye) shouldface the right side of the machine.

My brothers serger is skipping stitches


Many problems can cause a serger to skip. Start with the correct new needles and good quality thread. Skips can be tension a clearance or timing issue or the amount of thread pulled out by the thread guides. This is not something most consumers can repair. Even with the service manuals they can be difficult. I have spent thousands of hours working on sergers.and skipping at high speed can be difficult to solve. Some brands are more user friendly to service. This like will show some of the common settings and tools needed for a serger service.

I have re-threaded, changed needles, adjusted the differential and cutting width but cannot sew a single seam without the stitches skipping, sometimes several in a row and sometimes only one.


SKIPPED STITCHES ON A SERGER

1. Is the needle bent or worn--replace

2. Is the needle inserted correctly into the needle holder--check needle

3. Is the Serger threaded correctly--rethread

4. Is the presser foot pressure right for the fabric--adjust
5. are the needles the correct ones for the serger
6. Possible timing problem--need to be checked at a sewing machine shop

My White SUPERLOCK serger, when I sew for only a minute or so, the stitch length does not stay at 3 but keeps going back to 1.


truthfully it sounds like the machine needs to be checked at a
repair shop because the stitch lengh should not change on it's own

My machine is skipping stitches


Lower the pressure on the feed dogs, use a stretch stitch, and longer stitch length. Be sure to use a good quality thread, and maybe go lighter weight thread.

Lost manual for my white superlock serger model 2500


This may be another phone number to the same place, I'm not sure. But I lost my White serger manual, I called White Sewing customer Service at 800-331-3164, and they sent me to a website where I could download it for free. She searched for a minute, so it may vary by model, but I was directed to singerco.com and searched under manuals for "wsl734" for my White superlock 734dw. Wanted to share!

White Serger 1934D not stitching


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