Question about Husqvarna Huskylock Computerized 936

1 Answer

Huskylock 936 hi, my overlocker is skipping stiches despite changing needle and checking tensions. I have also noticed that the handwheel is quite stiff to turn.

    Thank you for your advice. The machine is clean of unwanted thread and is well oiled. It was serviced 18 months ago but has had very little use since - circa 24 hrs. We think on reflection that it either a) was not serviced as well as it should have been or b) needs another service. Many thanks once again. HB1

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.

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.

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.

Good evening madam
It sounds like there is something wrong with the electrical system in your sewing machine. You can check the power and connections.
good luck

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.

Sounds like maybe its to do with the loopers hitting in the bottom,go to the manual and make sure that you have not moved the coverstitch lever..also, do you have the right bottom plate on for the stich your trying to do?

Huskylock 936 error code


This will also occur if the "needles" and "loopers" lock up as though threads are tangled and binding the machine. If needles and loopers move freely when manually turning the handwheel counter clockwise, you probably need to take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service. 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.

No brilliant idea how to fix this yourself, sorry Frances - but I would phone the repair shop right away and tell them what has happened. They need to correct this for you free of charge - they returned to you a machine that was not in working order.

Bernina 1300 dc overlocker skipping stitches


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.
