    simplicity serger SL800. I cant get the thread to make a chain. It looks like it is threaded properly and needle inserted with scarf to the back. It was working fine till i had to change the needle.

Check the needles and make sure the looper isn't stuck between the needles causing them to bind. Open the front cover and look at all the usual moving parts, Try to operate the unit by hand and carefully look at them to see if something is binding. If you have a digital camera take a picture of this area and post it if possible.

Serger problems

I love/hate my serger! Is thread stuck anywhere below? Bent needles? Are the needles in correctly and tightly? Is the machine greased? Unthread it, rethread. After all of this, it should work. Good luck. My simple old singer didn't do this but it wore out and the Viking is temperamental!

Brother 1034d handwheel stuck

the best thing to do is take the machine in to have it checked.
sergers are nice & very useful, I have a babylock serger with the jet-air
looper threading systerm, and I use it alot when making clothes.
I even used my serger to serge the ends of fabric that I haven't used yet
so the ends won't fray.

Serger won't sew

is there any smell to the machine?
it's possible that sewing the thick fabric could have caused the machine
to jump time
it would be a good idea to have it serviced at a sewing machine shop

My Shark 7133 slowed down while sewing and stopped. The handwheel won't turn at all. I cleaned the bobbin area but it still won't work. The light switches on and the machine motor reves up but...

Slacken the stop motion as if to wind a bobbin and press on the foot control, if the motor runs really fast then you have either thread stuck in the bobbin case area or you may need to oil the machine

My serger won't start. Motor is running but won't turn. Also wheel wont turn

Hi, On most of these newer machines they have a clutch that you engage to fill the bobins.
Please make sure that the clutch is disengaged for normal use. If this is all OK see that belt
is attached on motor.
