Hi everyone,

I'm new here and so glad I've found this forum.

Last night our new golden retreiver puppy got his leash tangled in the power bar to which my serger was connected. The serger crashed to the floor, and the spool holders have become disconnected. Who knows what else might be wrong with it.

Do you think there's a possibility that thing might be repaired, or do you think that a slam to the floor like this might have damaged it irrepairably?

Thanks for your input.

Oh what a terrible thing to have happen! I'd take it in to the service center and have them look at it. Maybe Tom will happen along with an answer for you.

Oh Kaelieane!
I cringed when I read your post! Ouch!
I think you should take it to the shop. If they can fix it, you'll be pleasantly surprised. If not, you'll already be at the place to buy a new one! I don't ever want to live without my serger ever, ever again!

Most likely it can be repaired. Your local shop will most likely give you a free estimate.
Have fun or don't do it, Tom
