Material is not advancing fabric; have not changed any settings pressure setting is at 4 and feed dog is in up postion. any sugguestions?

1. Try to adjust the stitch length above zero. Increase a little at a time to see what happens.
2. With no thread put a piece of paper under the foot to see if it will move. Depending on the fabric type/thickness you will have to adjust the pressure up or down.
3. If the paper doesn't move you will have to adjust the spring and rod because they may have came loose.
4. Put a little oil on your pressure arm.

Stitch length shorter than dial says that it is how do I adjustable it correctly?

I don't know your machine type but what I'm going to tell you is universal:
1. Take the knob off. 2. Without the knob on turn the dial all the way until the dial stops. It would be set to zero; probably counter clockwise. 3. Replace the knob to where the knob would be pointing towards zero.

I have a Master Mechanic garage door opener. The door will only go up and down a certain distance. Is there a chain travel control or set. All chains have been lubricated.

There is something called limit switch adjustments. They should be on the side of the opener. If the opener is not going up fully, increase the up limit by turning the up screw. Use a flat head screw driver only. 1 full turn of the screw gives you 2in of travel. Same for the down. If the door is not going down fully increase the down limit by turning the screw.

I need a manual for a Simplicity Easy Lock Serger SL4300. I got it from a friend and she didn't have the manual. The loops are over the top of the material sticking out to far and I do not know how...

You can purchase a manual for this machine from the following link for $US14.99

I can't see it anywhere for free download unfortunately. But you may find that looking at a manual for another 4 thread overlocker may get you started. If you try this link you can look at the free Singer downloads,
try this link for their 654 3/4 thread model
it may give you some help now.

Essentially, to change the stitch width you can either move the lower fixed blade wider to cut less fabric or tighten up the upper and lower looper threads in order to close up the stitching.

Moving the blade usually means opening up the front cover door, putting pressure on the upper blade and swinging it up out of the way. Then you can adjust the lower blade, usally by turning a knob near to it. Sometimes this knob will be marked 1, 2, 3.

Adjusting the looper tensions is done by changing the tension dial settings for the thread needing adjusting. If its a standard four thread overlocker that produces a "marrow" seam it will have two needles and two loopers, upper and lower. Generally on most overlockers, the upper looper will be the second from right tension dial and lower looper will be right most tension dial - turn up one half number to tighten, or down one half number increment to loosen, then test stitch again. The needles shouldn't need adjusting too often.

I usually start with all tension dials on 5, test stitch, then adjust from there. Some fabrics will tunnel (pull in) if the seam is too wide so you need to either move the blade to the left and trim more fabric or loosen off the loopers. Or in the reverse, like you are getting, the threads will hang off the edge.

There is some good serger information on Debbis Cosgrove's pages but if you have never used a serger, then getting the genuine manual is probably best.

I have a Babylock 5260 serger and have changed the blades before but this time when I changed them I can't get them to align correctly. the top blade comes down and hits the bottom blade. I cant figure out...

First make sure that both blades have no burrs on the them from hitting pins. Then set the lower blade so that the cutting surface is flush with the surface of the needle plate. Then adjust the upper blade so that when it comes down to it's lowest position on the downward stroke of the cutter arm, that the cutting edge comes down past the lower blade at least 1MM. That will ensure a full cut of the blades.

I want to know which knob I use to make the stitching narrower

there are generally two variable controls .. one adjusts the stitch length (distance between stitches measured in stitches per inch) ... the second is stitch width .. that adjusts how far the zigzag moves left and right .. thats usually just a number from 0 to 10 or so .. 10 would be maximum width .. 0 would be used for straight stitch ..
so you need to adjust the stitch width control to make the stitching narrower .. the controls are called different things on different brand sewing machines .. if you have the brand and model number then there may be instruction booklets available ...

Bobbin tension

I had the opposite problem it may be that the lower tension is too tight (mine was too loose).
To fix it you have to take the bobbin case out completely to access the tension adjustment screw. - Remove the 2 screws holding the metal plate with a nickel and remove the plastic piece over the bobbin case - there is a small metal lever on the lower left side that needs to be pressed down. You can then remove the bobbin case. There are 3 screws - the center one is the tension adjustment. It was painted green on my machine.  It appears that it is not a regular setting change, but a bad adjustment from the factory. So if you don't feel comfortable doing all that returning the machine for another will likely fix the issue.

Feed dogs on serger don't advance

I use my BLSE200 all the time and ran into the same problem just last week. After pulling out my hair in frustration, I finally realized it had to do with the stitch length. Something wasn't connecting after I adjusted the stitch length, so when I re-set the stitch length, it popped things back into alignment and the feed dogs started working again. *whew* Hope that helps!

Tension issues!!

this sounds totaly stupid, but I just have been dealing with this exact same issue for the last 3 hours- the resoultion? I took off the stitch finger and it started working perfect! I don't understand why this fixed my problem but in a crunch works great! Perfect even stiches and blades cutting evenly as well.
