Question about White Sewing Superlock 1934D Mechanical Sewing Machine

Open Question

My White Superlock 1934D will not make a stitch. I was using it yesterday and worked great then I ran out of thread so I replaced it and threaded it as I am supposed to. It immediately broke a needle. After replacing needles (with recommended needle) my machine will not make a single stitch.

SOURCE: I have a white superlock 228 jaguar serger problems with right needle

Couple of things I could think of: tension disks need cleaning, there is a site that tells how to clean them, maybe 2 as I recall. Other thing is it is a much older serger, (I have one I am slowly working on to bring up to working level), so it could be that a tension spring internally has lost its tension. It might need a trip to the repair man if that is the case. Another thing is are you using correct needles for the machine? Have you changed them recently? Even new needles can be bad, so if you have to change three times to triple check it can be worth it.

SOURCE: needle thread breaks while quilting on machine frame

I think you might have better luck if you use 40 or 50 weight thread.

SOURCE: thread continually breaking in lower looper needle

I was having this very same problem with my lower looper . I had been using the one needle stitching all afternoon and I was doing quite nice stitching. then I decided to put the right needle back in and do some overlock stitching and guess what I spent the next two hours fighting the looper problem. I had completely re-thread this machine at least 20 times now. I decided to take the needle out and re-insert it and re-thread it one more time (right lower looper- then upper looper- right needle- then left needle) was careful to pull all threads to the back and under the presser foot for about 6 inches.
Held on to the thread, lowered presser foot and did the chaining stitch. BINGO it didn't break, tried it with a piece of cloth and Perfect stitches. I have a Babylock BL402 and used tension settings left to right
4-3-3-3 and default settings for the rest.
Hope this helps someone someday.

SOURCE: Needle Thread breaking after about 30 seconds of quilting

Are you threading it correctly? I've had this problem twice, the first few times the thread was wrapped around different items (below the spool holder and then around the needle) the other times I threaded it wrong. Double check that the machine is threaded correctly with the manual. I've missed a step here or there and it does make a difference.

SOURCE: needle will not sew thread into material

Sounds like the timing is off. Take the bobbin out of the bobbin case and lower the needle into the needle plate. As the needle starts on the upswing, the hook should meet the needle just above the needle eye on most machines. If it isn't meeting at that point then your hook timing will need to be adjusted.

I need to thread my White Superlock 1924D were can I find on the internet


White sergers (Superlocks) and sewing machines were made by Singer. Singerco.com has many of the manuals available as a free download: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals .

However, I've never heard of a White 1924D. Did you give the correct model number? The threading diagrams for the 1934D is in part 1 of that machine's manual start on page 18. The direct link to this manual is here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/982_sl-1934d,2000-a-x.pdf .

Most White Superlock machines have very similar threading directions. I hope this helps.

Left needle thread not connecting


Timing an overlocker is NOT for home service, it takes training, tools, gauges and experience take it in to get it fixed

White Superlock serger continually breaking needles


First take all the thread out of the machine. Put in new needles and run the machine slowly by hand and see if there is a problem with timing. If the needle hits and bends or breaks... take it in to be timed. If the needle don't hit....

Make sure you are properly threading this thing. Unlike a sewing machine which gives you some leeway, Sergers must be threaded in a certain order. Typically, upper looper, lower looper, right needle left needle. If you break a thread you can't just rethread that thread... you have to start from the beginning.

You might check singerco.com for the manual for this thing. They have most of white's manuals online they are identified by a W before the serger model number.

I need an owner's manual


Singer owns the White line. The manual for the 1934D Superlock is available in two pdfs: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/982_sl-1934d,2000-a-x.pdf and http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/983_sl-1934d,2000-b-x.pdf .

The section on the thread tension starts on page 38 of the first manual.

I hope this helps. If you need additional assistance, please indicate which threads (upper, lower) that are not correctly tensioned.

(this is a multi-language manual. Page 38 has the tension information in English. Please note I needed to use the rotate feature in Adobe Reader to make it easier to follow.)

I don't know how you rethread after the thread breaks but my wife has had 3 or 4 sergers and has found that if a thread breaks you MUST unthread and start at the beginning and not just try to rethread the one that has broken or you will have trouble.
