Question about Brother 1034D Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

My 1034D serger has a broken part that holds the lower looper.

I have looked, and looked to try to find a repair manual to order a part for my serger. I don't want attachments or buy another, but fix the one I have. I don't seem to be able to find a schematic of my machine. I don't know what to call the part but it isn't an accessory part. It is part of the machine that holds or is below the lower looper. It broke when the lower looper broke.Help!!!!!!!! Thanks for your help, rschiner

    The 1034D us one of the BEST sergers on the market, especially for people who are new to sergers! It is still being actively sold so you should be able to get the part or have it repaired by a Brother technician.

How do I get my Serger to sew properly?

I'm afraid you've threaded your serger incorrectly. I've done it myself more than once, so I try to make sure that I tie new thread to old and pull it through the machine rather than try to re-thread it. That avoids the problem for the future, but doesn't help you now.

Here's what you can do right now to work out the problem:
1. Get out your owner's manual and check the thread path(s) for each thread. Be sure you've got them right, especially the loopers (usually the two threads on the right-hand as you look at the machine).
2. If you don't find any obvious errors, change the sequence of the looper threads - that is, which one is threaded first. I know it doesn't sound like this will help, but it fixed mine.
3. Be sure that none of the threads are caught under the feed dogs, they should pull fairly freely toward the back of the machine.
4. Start sewing without fabric in the machine. I know this is wrong for a standard sewing machine, but you should get a 'chain' with a serger. If it's not 'chaining,' go back and try these steps again.
5. If that doesn't fix the problem, or if it chains and still won't stitch, change your needles. They should be changed now and then anyway.
6. Be sure to lubricate your machine often according to the owner's manual. Most sewing machines need more oil than they get.

When we thread the serger . the thread is still skipping

Are you using the corfect serger system needles in it? Most domestic sergers will take the regular domestic needle 130/705X but work best with a serger needle with has a groove down the front as well as the regular back scarf. This helps with the thread pickup from the looper by the needles. Sergers also run much faster than domestic sewing machines so the tolerances are very fine.

My Bernina came with ELX705 needles and it does run better with these in it. Also you need to use mid size needles, don't go too small, probably a size 80 or 90 is best.

Check out this page for some good info as the different serger manufacturers do have their own recommended needle sometimes.

Always refer to your manual (or ring the manufacturer if lost) to double check what needle they recommend be used in your serger, it does make a difference.

I have this serger, also. A friend (who knows sergers) and I spent 2 hours today trying to get the lower looper threaded--with no success! There is a diagram in the door of my machine, but it is still very confusing! I'm taking mine to the shop on Monday and have them thread it and show me how to do it!
