Elna pro dc 5 stitch width lever

The "finger"on my DC Pro 5 broke when I let a bunch of high school aged girls make parts of their costumes. Don't ask me how or why it broke, it just did while I was overcasting a seam! I wrote Elna and asked them where I should take my machine since I no longer live near a dealer or repair shop, and they wrote back with the simple answer of , "Take it to an authorized dealer". DUH!!! Any suggestions on where to purchase a stitch width lever? I'm good with tools, and it looks like an easy job for me!

Thanks,

Dawn

Hi Dawn,

That machine is a Hosea Serger right?

I looked at some specs but I can't find that part you have described. Is it on the front panal?

Sergers are tricky, you might want to have a someone look at it make sure it is balanced. I'm gonna look into a couple more options for you in the mean time.

Elna SU needle position lever is very stiff


this is probably due to lack of use and just stiffening up of this lever, best thing is to take off the top cover and get some triflow oil into the lever area, then try to work it back and forwards. First though, always set the stitch length and stitch width dials to zero before you try to move the needle dial, this applies to changing the stitch selector too, always turn width and length to zero first to avoid wear on these parts internally.

If you are happy to delve a bit deeper into your machine internally you might want to join the Yahoo group called Elna Heirlooms where other Swiss elna owners share their love and knowledge of these machines, there will be message thread on this issue there for sure.

I nead a manual for a elna special ? please


Hi there,

try this link http://www.arizonaexpressionz.com/elna_instruction_manuals/Elna_EC_ZZ_SP_ST_SU_manual.pdf

there is a sewing guide available too, the SP would have less stitch functions than the SU - they did combined manuals for this range I think.

Good sturdy Swiss made machine, these were used in school classrooms for many years in NZ.

There is an Elna dealer locator at elnausa.com

I also see parts and accessories on ebay- I saved a search of "elna serger pro 5" and over a few months received lots of emails with listings of parts and accessories including plates.

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.

Have a 1970's elna su supermatic but cams don't work


There are two types of discs - single and double.
For the thinner single discs do as follows:
1.Turn stitch width knob to "0"
2. Turn stitch length knob to "0"
3. Insert the single disc
4. Turn the top selector to "A"
5. Make sure the needle selector is in the centered position.
6. You may now choose any stitch length or width you wish. I usually try "3" for the width and 1/2 for the length to start.

For the thicker double discs do as follows:

1.Turn stitch width knob to "0"
2. Turn stitch length knob to "0"
3. Insert the double disc
4. Turn the top selector to "A"
5. Make sure the needle selector is in the centered position.
6. You may now choose any stitch width.
7. The stitch length must be put on "A" - this is the difference between the single and double discs!
I hope this helps!

Elan Pro 5 DC


Try contacting Elna directly, or find your nearest agent thru their website, if in USA ....here

having this photo should help trace a part number if you can get onto an Elna service technician, if it were Janome, I could look up our references, so it should be straightforward.
