SOURCE: my white speedylock serger 1634 thread keeps getting in knots

i have the book and it says thread from inside out, inside looper (upper) then lower, then thread the needles, first right then left.  I have found that it does not matter if you thread the needles or loopers first but that you should try to thread from inside to out.

SOURCE: I need an Elna Pro 5 DC serger machine Owner's Manual

The original manual is out of print and all that is available now is photocopies and they cost about $15. Let me know if you still need it and your zip code so that I would know how much postage would be.

SOURCE: problems threading my janome serger

One critical hint:

You must thread the loopers BEFORE the needles, otherwise it won't stitch. Begin with upper looper, lower looper, right needle then left needle.

I need to switch to rolled hemming and can't find my manual


Is this on a serger?

Rolled hemming on a serger is usually achieved by doing the following: thread up for three thread overlock using right hand needle. Move blade to the right to trim fabric wider (so it rolls inside the seam). Put woolly overlock thread through top looper (this gives a smooth finish to the rolled hem). Loosen off top looper and tighten up bottom looper so the bottom looper is up tight against the needle thread on the underside. Test serge to get the stitch right, then turn the stitch length down to 0.5 to close it up tight (this uses loads of thread so I usually get everything else right first, then make this final adjustment). On my Bernette 334D tensions are R-Needle - 5, Top looper 7-8 and bottom looper is 3-4. Stitch length 0.5, differential zero.

And usually you flick a small lever or change a little finger on the foot or plate where the stitch forms, there is some variation here between models. Early Elna L4 and L5 locks you had a little finger you changed with a screwdriver on the pressure foot. Bernette has a little slide mechanicism near the blade that you flick forward to engage.

Hope this is of assistance to you - I went for a 2 hour lesson on my serger when I bought it and then came home and repeated all the techniques shown and then made notes and stapled all the stitch samples into a notebook so I could remember how I did it.

Also there are some great books on Serging, Nancy Zieman is one name that springs to mind. Or try You-Tube, she has some videos up there too showing different techniques.

When was the Elna Pro 4DE manufactured?


I'm thinking early 90's maybe but can't find a specific release date for this model online.

I do know that the first Elna Locks were released in UK in April 1987 and first models were L-1 (3 thread), L-4 (4 thread), L-5 (combo chain and 3 thread) because I was trained to demo these models.

Differential feed was a feature that soon followed in the home lock market across all brands.

Maybe try Yahoo group Sergers and ask there, there could be some members who have this model.
