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.

Singer 4411 skips stiches whatever stiche setting it is on


Make sure you are using a brand-new needle. A bent or damaged needle may not pick up the bobbin thread.

If you can watch the needle/hook action (open the bobbin are and hand-turn the handwheel), you may see that the timing is off. There are many web sites and videos online that explain tweaking the timing.

When I am sewing it will sew about 3 stiches and then jam.. It does it if I change weight of material or it will s kip stiches.


Skipped stitches is usually indication that needle is blunt or burred.
Or if you are using a sharp needle on knit fabrics it may also skip a little.

Not sure what you mean by "change weight of material" - do you mean you are sewing applique and going from one fabric weight onto another? or different sewing projects?

It is a good idea to change your needle for each new project (4-6 hours sewing time max) and choose the right type of needle and size for your project.

However, the jamming part sounds more like thread tension issues, especially if the jamming is happening underneath from the bobbin. If stitching is loose underneath, then top tension is the problem and visa versa.

Recheck your threading path, top and bottom tensions and that you have good quality thread. Change the needle, rewind a fresh bobbin, thread up and try again.

There is really good info on www.sewing.about.com or I refer to my Singer Sewing Machine textbook at lot too. Good luck.

Needles are breaking and the machine skips stiches


Hi there,

Well there are many reason for that problem you may check out one by one -
1. TENSION - check out the upper tension.
2. BOBBIN.
3. NEEDLE -many times a seamstress will get in a hurry and not give the needle a second thought when putting a new one in the machine. If your machine will not pick up the bottom thread or skips stitches badly, in most cases it's because the needle is in wrong.
4. NEEDLE PLATE.
Post comments for further help or information.....

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

I NEED HELP WITH THREADING 4 NEEDLE OVERLOCKER this has to be done in a sequence to form a chain HOW DO I DO THIS


Four needles or four thread (two needles and two loopers)?


Raise the antenna to it's highest position.

Raise the presser foot.

Set the tensions at zero.

Turn the handwheel so the loopers are at their highest position. There may be a mark on the handwheel to match with a mark on the side of the serger for this step.

Thread in the sequence shown on the inside of the serger door.

The thread is tangled and extra thick on the bottom of the fabirc when I stich


Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle.
If it passes this test you need to remove the bobbin case and check for burrs or rough spots. If you find any ,use an emery stick to remove them and then buff the area with fine steel wool.Put the bobbin case back in ,check your bobbin(change it ) and try again by turning the handwheel slowly and watching to see where thr thread is snagging

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.
