Question about White Sewing Superlock 2000 ATS Mechanical Sewing Machine
Hi there, could you tell me why this serger has not had consistent even stitches. Sewing looks fine from top but when you turn it over the looping is very uneven and especially the right needle. The right needle stitch from underneath looks like it's all pulled out. So I disregarded the right stitch needle and use 3 spools of thread for the other left needle and 2 other loopers. I've tried every tension setting and the differential as well. The prescribed setting just didn't work which was 4-2-2-2. I'm just sewing casual cotton wear fabrics. The looping threads would be fine for awhile and then would start to get uneven even when I use only the 3 threads. Thank you.
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.
