A couple weeks ago, I got brave and tackled a serger from a local church quilting group and got it serging. This evening, after I had my evening nap, I got brave and googled how to stop a Brother serger from squealing. One of my Brother 1034D sergers serged just fine, but it made such an awful sound! Have I ever told you I LOVE Google?? It helps me with ALL of my problems! I found this video.
I thought it was very helpful, and I checked out my belt to see if it was loose, but that was not the problem. It still squealed.I removed the bottom cover and oiled, I removed the cover off the end by the needle, and I finally removed the whole left end cover. I found lots of things to oil. There are lots of rotating parts, and I oiled them all. I finally quieted it down.
I think I can safely say I have passed the stage of being ‘afraid’ of sergers. From the ones I have threaded, and checked over, they are all very similar.
