Why did it suddenly stop cutting?


Please provide the model of your machine.

Ok, it's a serger. Wondered why a sewing machine would be cutting unless it had the cut-n-sew accessory.

Most likely the blades are damaged or malfunctioning. Is the blade still moving when it is stitching? Is it just chomping away at the fabric but not cutting? If so, either or both blades need to be replaced. Consult your owner's manual. Usually only one blade can be installed without any technical knowledge. You can probably order the replacement blade and install it yourself. However, the other usually needs to be replaced by a knowledgeable technician because it requires some precision.

Has the blade stopped moving at all? If so, how long has it been since a thorough cleaning and oiling? Take it for service.

I have a babylock evolve serger. It serges fine w/o the blade engaged. Once I engage the blade, the stitches don't hit the fabric


most Sergers have a blade adjustment that allows you to move the blade closer to the sewing plate as well as further away sounds like yours may be to close to plate. Open the door to the underside of your sewing machine; their should be a round knob at the base of the blade are. Turn the blade until it moves away from the sewing plate. test and see if you have adjusted it enough so as not to cut your stitching off. hope this helps

Why does fabric get caugh on the roll hem devise when over locking


this sounds like an overlocker/serger machine you are using? if the fabric is catching on the overlocking tongue it could be a number of factors, have you lifted the top cutting blade out of the way and forgot to put it back into place? That would be my first thought, the top and bottom blade move against each other cutting the fabric. Rolled hemming usually requires the blade to be set on about 2, or middle of its setting range, the stitch finger is pulled back out of the stitching area, top looper thread is loosened off and bottom looper thread is tightened up, resulting in the top looper thread wrapping around the edge of the fabric and pulling the cut edge down under within the seam, forming the rolled hem.

I replaced cutter blade on Elna PRO DC 5. New blade won't cut fabric. how do I adjust it?


All sergers have 2 blades. Just like scissors. Only 1 blade of scissor is sharp = not good cutting.

I accidentally sewed over a pin and now the moving


Disengage and then engage the blade to see if this will reset the position of the blade.

You could replace the blade - this should be in the manual or you may need to take the machine in for service as replacing the blade may or may not be all that needs to be done.

Brother 1034D serger is not cutting and is binding up


This problem is usually when the lower blade drops below the sewing plate. Look at the blade in relation to the plate and see if it has dropped below the plate, then you can reset the blade. If it is not the upper blade may be too dull to cut so it will need to be replaced.

Serger blade is dull


You blade definitely needs replacing. It is something that you could probably do yourself if you paid very close attention to the position of the current blade before removing it and get the new blade lined up exactly the same way. That is the best place to start. Then very carefully turn the hand wheel by hand while the machine is unthreaded. You could even place a piece of fabric under the foot and see if the knife is going to cut the fabric. If all is well and there is no grinding or hitting, you should be good to go.

Serger blades do not cut.


For now, it works only satisfactorily:
I applied alcohol to further clean both blades,
dried and then oiled them. There seemed to be a slight gap between blades;
the fabric was dragged into the gap instead of being cut.
