Just as soon as you can. Electronics have a shorter warranty period than mechanical problems.

How can I correct an overlock machine?


Start sewing, and slowly turn the tension dial for one of the threads to a lower number. As you sew, examine the stitches to see the change in tension. The thread that has been adjusted will be slack or loose. Return the tension dial to the original setting.

What are the stitch numbers


There are lots of numbers in sewing! I suspect you are referring to the numbers that some sewing machines assign to each stitch. So, for example, a straight stitch might be #1, zig zag stitch #2, hem stitch #3, and so on.

Different sewing machines will number their stitches differently, though. My suggestion is for you to take a plain piece of fabric and a contrasting thread color and just sew a few inches of every stitch on your machine. Number them, and keep the swatch for reference!

Another "stitch number" on a sewing machine could be the tension number (that's the dial usually at the right side of the needle). This will determine how the stitch lies on (or within) the fabric. Another number will set the length of the stitch, so you can have tiny little stitches or very long ones or anything in between. Yet another number will set the width of the stitch, so you can go from a very narrow zig-zag to one as wide as your machine is capable of producing. That width is limited by the opening of the plate on your machine, usually about 5 mm.

Hope this answers your question, and isn't too much information!

The thread keep bursting as soon as i start to sew although machine is thread properly


Check your thread tension isn't too tight, try on a piece of similar fabric that you are going to use, try sewing a line of stitches, if the thread snaps, change your tension number, then sew another line with your different tension number, try this until you can stitch without the thread snapping, it could be that your bobbin tension is too tight. Can you check your machine manual, it could even be the needle or the thread that's wrong for your fabric. But I would say, check your tension.
Hope this helps.

My tension is very loose when I do freemotion quilting. It is fine on the top, but the bottom gets tangled. It sews fine when I have the walking foot on, but when I put on the different plate for...


Hi Leann: Think about how a sewing machine works. Now think about what kind of difference an 1/8th of an inch distance would make. Yes. You will need to adjust your top tension when you do free motion work. Keep in mind that plate is not just stopping your feed dogs from working... it's holding your materials that far away from the bed of the machine... so when the thread makes a loop and tightens for the stitch it has the extra 1/8th of an inch to make up for... if the tension isn't right... you got loops. There are no "specific" settings for tensions... you learn by doing you stitch a few stitches on like materials and tighten until you see a good stitch.

Take the needle out and put it back in carefully. If that doesn't solve the prob, replace it with another needle, and hopefully it will return to working.

Won't form a chain stitch


You 910 serger doesn't have the option for a Chain Stitch. It is a 2, 3, or 4 thread serger. You can do a good number of different stitches but a chain stich is not one of them.

If what you mean it that it won't "chain off", meaning sew with no fabric beneath the foot as you gently pull the thread towards the rear of the machine, that could be for a number of different reasons. First, change the needles and unthread the machine and start over. If the threads are not exactly where they should be, your serger won't sew correctly. A great video on threading your machine can be seen at:http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/mediafiles/huskylock/index_en.html

How do I change the stiches?


You can do all of these stitches by using different combinations of your stitch selector, stitch width and stitch feed knobs, for instance, on the panel I can see on your machine:

http://www.jo-ann.com/joann/product/images/52659.jsp?CATID=cat3122&PRODID=prd11333

Stitches 1, 2 & 3 are straight stitches, centered, left and right. Really basic stuff, not different stitches at all. 4,5,6,7 & 8 are zig-zag stitches of different widths. 9 is the widest zig-zag (no. 8) on a finer stitch length, etc...

I think you should try and get an instruction manual for your machine. After a lengthy search of my usual manual sources, I've determined that that this may not be so easy. I think you should contact White on their 800 number and let them try and help you... 1-800-331-3164.

If you found this helpful, please vote generously as I receive nothing other than acknowledgement for my time.

Sewing machine straight stitch is not straight


It sounds like it is making a blind stitch, does it look something like this? -----v-----v-----v-----v-----v If so it might be on the blind stitch setting instead of the straight stitch! ;-)
