    My machine is a Toyota SL 3404D overlocker



    I have been trying to set the tensions on my overlocker for two different types of fabric - but I am finding that whatever fabric I use the chain is not consistent - ie, I could overlock a 60inch piece of fabric and will get a very uneven stitch with parts of it that look fine... what can I do to correct this? I have tried altering my tensions as per the guide book... but this is not rectifying the problem - the stitches are just not consistent.

    Please help.

    cant believe how hard it is to acquire the manual for the 134D overlocker. Any help would be appreciated. Even a manual that is simular would be helpfull.

    In June 2008 I was able to purchase a new manual for the New Home MyLock 134D Overlocking machine by sending an email to Janome.co.uk. The cost was £6.00 + £5.00 P&P. I received the manual very quickly.

    i am having an issue with the left needle [thread 4] seems to be catching the thread above the eye of the needle is and causing the thread to break, have tried adjusting the tension and i have tried different colours thread to try to work out which part is causing the problem but it is a different thread catching it each time.

    neekbunny: I had a similar problem and i tried to figure it out just like you did. I installed new needles, that did not help. I found a solutions online: correct threading order is 2, 1, 3 and 4. It is NOT 1, 2, 3 and 4. This solved my problem. I don't kow if it will help you, but you can try it.

Here is the link to the PDF file of the manual for what appears to be the 134D Model on Bernina's website. It says it is for a 43D but it looks very close to my 134 model. It is out of print, but you can save it to your computer and print it if you want!

The manual states that 1.0 on the differential feed is the neutral position,(no differential feed). Turn the dial counter clockwise toward 2.0 if the stitch is stretched and toward 0.7 if it is puckered. The larger the number on the stitch length dial will give you a longer stitch, this can be adjustted from 1 to 4. R is for rolled hemming. A lot will depend on the type of fabric you are using, but these are the basic instructions from the manual. Hope this helps.

I cant feed the overlocker.. so it dont want to work


Best to refer to the owner's manual. You can search the internet for the Make + Model + the word "Manual" and you may find a free download.

ALWAYS raise the presser foot while threading the machine.

Be sure to thread each in the order specified in the manual (usually, Upper Looper, Lower Looper, then the needles). Threading in the incorrect order will guarantee failure!

If a thread breaks or the machine messes up, it's usually best to remove All the threads and rethread from the beginning.

To start out, it helps to use a combination of different color threads.

Set the tensions to the midway point (the standard for basic overlocking).

I need help in good tension for rolled hem in empisal 606D overlocker


Your owner's manual should have instructions for rolled hem settings. My Bernina manual has a the following settings:
Medium weight fabric
80/12 Universal needle
3 cones serger thread
Upper looper 3-5
Lower looper 7-9
Left needle (no thread)
Right needle 3-5
Stitch length 1-1.5
Cutting width 2-3
Differential feed N

Can use woolly thread in the upper looper, but the tension may need to be loosened since the woolly nylon thread will stretch.

How do I adjust the stitch length on a Janome "My Lock" 234?


Is there a dial on the right above the flywheel? This is where you adjust the stitch length on most sergers. It might be numbered from 0 to 5 or 4.

tally_girl_23.jpg
If it has differential feed, there would be a dial there for this too, possibly under the stitch length knob - it would have numbers like -1, -0.5, 0, 0.5 and 1 on it.

If you are new to sergers/overlockers I highly recommend a class, demonstration or investing in a good book to get you started as they are not like sewing machines and many of the techniques are best demonstrated such as rolled thread edging and flat lock seams.

I've borrowed he Singer book "Sewing with an overlocker", or "Serge with Confidence" by Nancy Zieman from my library but there would be other titles too.

How to use the differential adjustment knob on the Juki MO-644D. Not seeing instruction in the manual


Found the manual here on features page http://jukihome.com/products/mo644d.html
Differntial feeding is covered on page 25, and the diagram showing location of the differential feed knob and stitch length knobs inside the cloth plate is on page 2.

So swing open the left cover (cloth plate) to access these controls.

Differential feed means you change the feeding speed of the two feed dogs so the front one feeds at a different speed to the back one. Effectively, this either streches the fabric as you seam, or pushes the fabric together as you seam. So if you want to do a rolled hem "lettuce" edge you are stretching the fabric with the differential feed to achieve this, turn the numbers up. If you are sewing a loose knit and it is "waving" then turn the diff feed down to 0.7 or so to squeeze the fabric back together.

That's basically it! Like anything on an overlocker, test sew, adjust, test sew, adjust until you are getting the right effect.
