Question about Husqvarna Huskylock Computerized 936

1 Answer

My huskylock 936 is binding up.

Can this problem be fixed by me or does it need to be serviced. After taking the bottom plate off i've cleaned the dust from the inside. the hand wheel turns a little better but not to the extent that it will sew freely. I hope the machine isn't shot! Thanks for any advice.

I've never seen one that couldn't be fixed. It is just a matter of finding the right technician to work on it. Binding in this machine is often in the upper shaft, either the bushings or in the linkage to the needle bar. If this is where your problem is you probably shouldn't try to do it yourself.

You may want to keep an eye on parts or donor machines on eBay. Or a sewing repair shop may have what you need.

936 Huskylock needle bar does not move up and down.

First, make sure the machine is engaged to sew. some machines,
have a knob inside the flywheel on the left side that disconnect the sewing mechanism to wind a bobbin without the needle bar moving.

Why does my 936 serger keep showing overloaded ?

My suspicion is that Viking sergers (905, 910, 936) bind up after heavy use and years of service. In other words, they are not "lubricated for life". Can you turn the handwheel on the machine? If not (or if extremely hard), you now know what the motor was dealing with. My guess is the motor is burned out, but you need both a total overhaul of the main shaft bearing system (cleaning the bearing and relubrication), and, a new motor.
I probably should consider repairing sewing machines in my retirement.

Lower looper hitting sewing plate, how do I fix Huskylock 936

Sounds like possibly a timing problem. I would call a repairman. If that's the case you can't fix it since it needs metric tools.

My Huskylock 936 - needle won't go down. The motor seems to be binding up.

Check your threading, both top and bottom, sounds like you have threaded wrong.

Huskylock 936 is making an irritating chatter noise. Stitches are fine but moving by hand the wheel seems stiff. Got from dealer used and long drive away like this and not sure if it is normal. Something...

Sounds like maybe its to do with the loopers hitting in the bottom,go to the manual and make sure that you have not moved the coverstitch lever..also, do you have the right bottom plate on for the stich your trying to do?

States Overloaded. What does that mean?

The shaft is getting stiff and motor can't turn it. Try taking the bottom off and cleaning the fuzz out. Use alittle oil on all of the joints.

Huskylock 936 error code

This will also occur if the "needles" and "loopers" lock up as though threads are tangled and binding the machine. If needles and loopers move freely when manually turning the handwheel counter clockwise, you probably need to take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page -

Good luck.

Huskylock 936

If it hasn't been lubed in a while, you can do that and it might make things better.

If you have already lubed it you should probably get it serviced.
