Question about Elna 1010

1 Answer

Serger blades do not cut.

Elna serger pro dex704: the cutting blades do nothing. Not old enough to even replace, no barbs etc., and have put in the 2nd blade (never used) to no avail. Have adjusted the moving blade up and down, no change. Sewing on cotton knit (t-shirt). Fabric seems to rag and not cut. All cleaned. Suggestions? SJ

For now, it works only satisfactorily:
I applied alcohol to further clean both blades,
dried and then oiled them. There seemed to be a slight gap between blades;
the fabric was dragged into the gap instead of being cut.

Why did it suddenly stop cutting?


Please provide the model of your machine.

Ok, it's a serger. Wondered why a sewing machine would be cutting unless it had the cut-n-sew accessory.

Most likely the blades are damaged or malfunctioning. Is the blade still moving when it is stitching? Is it just chomping away at the fabric but not cutting? If so, either or both blades need to be replaced. Consult your owner's manual. Usually only one blade can be installed without any technical knowledge. You can probably order the replacement blade and install it yourself. However, the other usually needs to be replaced by a knowledgeable technician because it requires some precision.

Has the blade stopped moving at all? If so, how long has it been since a thorough cleaning and oiling? Take it for service.

How can I do adjustment of cutting width elna overlock machine


to change how much fabric is cut you need to move the cutting blade either left or right, this overlocker is one of the first so I think this process was pretty manual, ie using a screw driver to release and reposition the right hand blade.

it may be worthwhile buying a manual for this while you still can get them, this model was released back in 1987 in UK. Instruction Manual Elna L1 Serger

I replaced cutter blade on Elna PRO DC 5. New blade won't cut fabric. how do I adjust it?


All sergers have 2 blades. Just like scissors. Only 1 blade of scissor is sharp = not good cutting.

My simplicity serger SW432 wont cut


There are 2 blades, a fixed cutter and a moving cutter. The moving cutter should move approx 1/8" at it's lowest point past the fixed cutter. There should also be some pressure between the cutters
