The easy way to reset an overlocker (serger) is to ensure the tension units are all clean and lint free, then use a different colour for each looper and needle/s.

Sew a sample, check front and back, make a small adjustment as required, another test, and so on until an even result is achieved.

If the tension dials pop off easily you can then put them back on so they are all on the same setting (Janome uses 3 as their base setting).

If the knob or dial is fixed, just write down the new settings and keep with machine........the lint is important, as it can jam in the tension dials and hold them open, thus reducing tension, so make sure they are CLEAN !!

See-saw a length of clean fabric moistened with methylated (denatured or surgical) spirit between the discs to be certain.

I have a singer profession 5 serger. The chainstitch keeps breaking.

Thread breakage occurs most often because the machine is not threaded correctly or is not threaded in the correct order. Remove all the threads from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread. Be sure to thread each in the correct order and that each follows the correct threadpath.

It is a Singer stylist 834 and I can't get the machine to feed the material through. I already checked the settings and cleaned it out but had no success

I just downloaded the manual for your serger from the Singer site, and on page 30 under Troubleshooting, it says that either the presser foot isn't set with enough pressure, or the differential feed is not set correctly.

I don't have the manual for Singer serger model # 14U555 and cannot get it threaded correctly.

I couldn't find a link to anywhere to get the manual free, but it's available for purchase from Singer here. They do have a serger threading guide here that may be helpful.

Hope this helps a little. Thanks for usin Fixya!
