What you should do is bring your machine to a qualified technician. That  
said it is an Allen wrench you need for most of them.

LOL!!!  I was going to suggest that as well.  I did some searching,  
but without the model number ("singer serger" is a little vague) it  
is difficult to offer help.  :-}  I wonder if OP knows how to time  
that looper...

That would be easy if "qualified technicians" didn't charge an arm and a le
g! Once we start sewing, we have to become qualified technicians, because n
o machine sews without needing adjustment. What you SHOULD do is put a tuto
rial on YouTube - I'm sure you'll get lots of views, and therefore eventual
ly some benefit! BTW, I'm awaiting arrival for an upper looper as we speak,
 and I am a big-time do-it-yourselfer!

Golly, let's hope Wanda has had her serger repaired  
since she originally posted her question back in  
NOVEMBER 2013.

That "qualified technician" you are criticizing is a regular  
contributor to this group, and often provides very detailed  
instructions.  However, certain jobs are beyond the skill-set (or  
tools) of home sewists and SHOULD be undertaken by professionals.

Do you do all your own car/home/boat repairs?  LOL

If we do not employ professionals from time to time, they will not  
employ US when the need arises.  <g>

So very correct Beverly, There are fewer and fewer of us around. The reason  
is the lack of business, at one time a person could make a fair living as a  
repair tech, not so much these days. If I was much younger I would be gone  
but after 38 years and who would hire a guy over 60 anyway.
One day soon there will be no repair shops and you will be buying disposable  
junk to sew with.

Gah, bite your tongue!!!  :-O

I am so unhappy about the situation for my Singer embroidery  
machines,  I will have to drive to Arizona for the only shop which  
still does the recommended 3,000,000 stitch service, the only local  
shop damaged one of my machines last time I let them touch it.

OR, could I bring them to you?  Do you (are you allowed to) do any  
Singer Quantum XL5000 & 6000 service?  Not under warrantee, and the  
machine are sewing just fine, I just want to keep up with routine  
cleaning and lubing.  If you can do it, I have two machines, I can  
drive across country in the fall.  I would love to see my DGD  
perform at Juilliard, so I could make it a dual purpose trip. ;-)

Singer does not own me. No one does. I can do what ever I want.  I see no  
reason though to drive across the US for service.

Ron, I did not mean to imply that Singer "owned" you, but I am  
familiar with the difficulties you had with them a few years back,  
and I would never want to be responsible for contributing to your  
legal costs.  ;-}

I could drive to Mesa, AZ faster, but my DGD is in NYC, and that  
makes *that* trip much more desirable.  I do not really want to pack  
and ship my two machines.  If I can find someone who can spare the  
time (ten+ days) to make the road trip with me, I will seriously  
look into doing it.

I'll keep you posted as to my plans.

Good service people are very hard to find.

I'm about to put my Bernina in for a full service and that will cost me  
$AU180  which at today's exchange rate is $US131.  I count that as money  
well spent.

Not "one day" Ron.  "Right now" is when there is a lot of such crap  
being bought out there in consumer land.
