What is the difference between a sewing machine and a serger?


Well..... A serger (or overlock) sews a different, and usually more complex stitch. Where a sewing machine usually only uses two threads to make the stitch, a serger can use two, three, four or even five threads and will sew around the edges of the work piece, as well as trimming the edge of the work just ahead of the sewing area, or as you feed the work in, the trimming takes place first. Sergers also make a stronger seam, attributable to more thread / stitching in the seam. Sergers are versatile and quick, but one drawback is the fact that sergers make a chain stitch instead of a lock stitch, like a machine with a bobbin, and lock stitches can be pulled out, like the stitching that used to close dog food bags and bags of charcoal. A lock stitch is just what it sounds like, it can't be pulled out. You only get a lock stitch with a machine that uses a bobbin, and sergers don't use bobbins. That fact makes serging desirable for the speed of production. Changing bobbins takes up a lot of time, even if you are using pre-wounds. Hope this helps!

I have a white serger 1600 which I do not have the threading instructions. I have tried to thread it but cannot get the machine to work properly. help!


Hi,

Here is the you tube website which has a 4 part video on using the
White serger 1600 machine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kF5ilPxR4Q

I also have a website with instructions threading this machine: http://www.ehow.com/info_8107633_instructions-thread-white-speedylock-serger.html

At the ehow site, you can search for all kinds of information in case you need more than learning how to thread and adjust the stitching. Happy sewing!

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate you vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

I can't understand how to thread lower looper (red) The instructions on the cover are very unclear


Sounds like you are trying to thread a serger or overlock. I would be helpful if you offered up the model number. However, a few things I've learned.

Sergers MUST be threaded in ORDER. Failure to do so will break your looper (had it happen)

In other words if you break one of the 4 or 5 threads... you have to un-thread all the other points and begin with Thread 1, then do thread 2, etc., etc.,

If you would give me the Make and model number of your serger... I will be happy to see if I can find your manual and threading guide for you.

I have a Baby Lock Serger Model BL4-605 Serger and can't find the Instruction Manual. Where can I find one? Also, I need a threading guide now, can you help?


I actually have the same model. I have the manual, but it is not very helpful. It does give instructions on treading, but not much else. You can download this manual online and it will cost at least $10.00.

Bissell Pro 2X. The brushes spin as soon as I turn it on but only spins for an instant then it quits spinning. The vacuum stays running. the handle is down.


it might be the drive belt slipping if the unit is off then the belt is locked onto the belt and then when the unit is switched on the belt slips and if its loose it doesnt hold the belt to the motor shaft

New Hoover belt nbr 385280-34 installed, belt still too loose.


There is no adjustment. As they wear they cut the groove in the roller deeper. Sure fix,and what Hoover will tell you to do is to replace the roller. If your like me though that isn't any good. so what I did was wind wax coated dental floss into the groove that the belt rides in and in and then put a couple of drops of super glue to hold the end and it works like a charm. Don't put too much in there the belt has to have a groove to ride in.
