You did not say it jammed from thread or just stopped working.

If it is thread, then you will need to carefully use embroidery scissors with a sharp point or a razor blade to cut at the lump of threads and carefully pull them out with your tweezers till you clear the mess. Use your vacuum to get all bits out of there, being careful and not hitting the loopers. You can knock them out of alignment with thread jams and such.

If it just stopped and you cannot turn the wheel, then it needs a trip to the repair shop, either your dealer or to a sew and vac repair where they know how to service sergers.

My Bernina 1300 MDC serger stopped sewing. The light comes on and the machine makes the start up noise but, when I press the foot pedal, nothing happens.The foot works with other machines.


check to see if any thread is jammed inside the right turning side wheel in the core area at times there can be thread that flies in there and may stop the main belt turning.

Riccar serger hand wheel stiff


Could very well be seizing due to lack of oil or buildup of lint, etc. Sergers generally require frequent oiling with fresh good quality oil (consult the manual). Continuing to force the motor to run when the machine is seized can burn up the motor.

Hand wheel turns half way and won't go any further,nothing appears to be hitting anything


Did you do a thorough oiing "inside" the machine--like take the bottom or back off, hand rotate the handwheel and apply a drop of "fresh, good quality serger oil" every place where metal rubs against metal?

I have a Babylock Eclipse serger..while sewing with it the machine jammed up and I cant get it to sew. It sounds like its stuck or motor is jammed..I just hear a small hum when I press the pedal.


A serger does not have a bobbin,they use loopers instead to form a chain stitch. I'm very familiar with the baby lock and they are a simple machine. Email me and I will try to guide you to the solution, chances are it not an adjustment problem but a dry feed cam. my email is [email protected]

I have a White serger about 8 years old. I jammed up that it can not go forward or reverse. I can turn the wheel just so far. I rethreaded and cleaned everything. When the needles go down to the...


The moving parts on sergers have very precise settings and minute tolerances. When something prevents the machine from turning, one must be very careful. Try disengaging the knife. If that doesn't help, I would strongly recommend taking it to a knowledgeable repair person.

The thread hangs up inside the bobbin holder


A jammed machine is caused by thread being caught in the hook. Remove the upper thread and the bobbin case, turn the hand wheel towards you (counterclockwise) by hand and remove any thread in the bobbin case area. *Always turn the hand wheel towards you. Turning the hand wheel away from you (clockwise) can cause the machines timing to become unaligned and jam your machine. Also, always make sure the presser foot is in the down position before you start sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will jam your machine in the bobbin case.

Hi there, my husqvarna 936 is jamming slightly when i turn the hand wheel and when i use the pedal it works but their is a load catching noise can you help me plz


Hello, The first thing to do with a serger is to change the needles and take the thread off the machine and rethread it. The 936 can sometimes "fight" you a little when it comes to getting the needles up in all the way. It's critical that they are inserted all the way up in the needle clamp. Check to also make sure the N/R lever is in the N position. Check the needle plate, are the "needle like" pins still attached to the plate? If your serger jammed, sometimes the thread breaks the pin supports out of the plate. They are very important when it comes to stitch formation.

Loud thumping noise


Usually means a needle, knife or looper is bent and everything is out of alignment. Try all new needles and replace knife, then carefully hand-rotate your wheel and watch the alignment as everything stitches in super-slow motion. If you can see the bent part, you MAY be able to gently bend it back in alignment, but because these are such precision machines. it will probably need a service, which is good anyway because the technician can clean and oil the machine very well. It's worth it to have it serviced. Remember when you hear a knocking next time, to stop immediately and investigate.
