SOURCE: I have a commercial serger sewing machine, Yamato

If you can't manage to replace the blades It would pay to have them sharpened professionally.

My 1034d brother serger froze up. How do I unfreeze it

If it is a mechanical (not computerized) model, it most likely needs a good cleaning and oiling. (Use only good quality serger oil or Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube.)

Or it could have some threads hung up somewhere.

May be best to take it for service.

Remember, a serger requires frequent cleaning and oiling to keep it operating--more frequent than a sewing machine because there are so many moving parts and so much more lint produced.

A Whitesuperlock? 2000 serger I got the tensions to work but really need to know where to put oil as it has been sitting 5 yrs so I am sure she would like some nice new oil.....

Search the internet for:
Manufacturer + Model + the word "Manual"

Well, here is a PDF you can download:

From the instructions, it doesn't need a lot of oiling, but it does say (page 8) to apply oil periodically to put 1-2 drops of oil on all metal moving parts.

Use ONLY fresh, good quality oil made for your machine. The oil you have is probably 5 yrs old and has turned dark. If so, throw it out and buy a new bottle. Apply only a couple of drops of oil in each spot according to the instructions. Oil collects dirt and lint, so if you use too much, your serger will be more difficult to clean when debris sticks to the excess oil. Clean and oil your serger frequently to keep it running well. When you become familiar with the sound of your machine, you will recognize when it starts to make more noise than usual and know that it needs some TLC.

How to oil a serger

Mostly I tell people to check their owner's manual, but I checked and yours is an older model serger which, like mine, doesn't have instructions for oiling. So, I'll just tell you how I've done it (mine is even older than yours, and gets hard use as I sew a lot).

1, On the flat plate behind the cutter, there are several holes with orange rims. A drop or two of oil in each. Then oil the hinge on the arm that holds the blade, I manually cycle the machine as I do this to get the oil to spread evenly.

2. Open up the looper cover and remove the cylinder cover, manually cycle the machine to see the parts move, then oil anything that moves as you manually cycle it some more to get the oil into the moving parts. I tend to use a good bit of oil on the lower parts as they get pretty dirty, then let it sit for a while (I often do it as I'm finished for the day), and sew on a scrap when I start again to be sure there is no oil in the thread that would transfer onto the garment.

Mine usually gets a good cleaning and oiling every 10 or so hours of sewing and it has lasted *really* well.

Brother 1034d serger. Seems unusually noisy (mechanically) in needle/cutter area. Not motor or belt as noise is metal parts clacking even after new needles, cleaning, oiling. Is this sound normal for...

in response to all serger, no, after my babylock serger is cleaned and serviced it runs quietly.
as for the brother, it's possible thats normal, try contacting a repair shop in your area and tell them about the serger and see what they say.
it's possible that the serger may need some type of adjustment
or a part may have broken .

How to thread a juki serger sewing machine. i need a large diagram of how to do it. thank you

do you know what model Juki it is? Is it a serger or a sewing machine? Juki do industrial straight, serger and specialised machines such as coverstitch and blind hemmers as well as domestic sewing machines and sergers so there is a big range of machines.

There are manuals at this site for various models of Juki Home sergers, but you will need to hunt through and find your model.

The manual is on the "features" tab for each model so just dig down a bit to locate the pdf file in there.

I hope this is what you were searching for.

Serger tension is off and I can't get it adjusted properly. I have a Necchi Lock machine that is 25 years old and it's been a gem. Do you know how to adjust the tension?

Do you still have the instruction manual for the machine? If you do, you get a great big gold star!

Unless this model has auto tension, there should be a tension knob or lever on each thread feed.

Open the tensions (set at zero). No access to the tension controls, raise the presser foot and this will open the tensions, if the controls are okay.

Re-thread the serger and then set the tension controls back to mid-range or lower the presser foot to re-set the auto tension function.

With the presser foot down, stitch a chain of threads and if they do not "knit" as the should - the serger needs to visit a repair shop.

Service for a serger usually begins around $100.

It could be just the timing needs to be adjusted.

If the tension controls need new springs or the controls needs to be replaced, this will add to the repair cost.
