Replacing needle on Elna Pro 905 DCX serger

During a recent move, the #1 needle (to the left) on my Elna Pro 905 DCX serger got broken, and I also have not been able to find the manual. Does anyone know how to get the broken needle out?? I have looked at this thing from every possible angle, tried loosening any screw that looked likely, but I simply can't find any clue to remove this needle. Help!

    What I was trying to say in my original post is that there is no visible screw in the vicinity of the broken needle; there is a tiny hole that looks like it might take a hex tool, but it's far smaller than any I have in my toolkit.

    Thanks, Michaelle! I'm going to try and find the right tool in the morning, and I'll post here again when (being optimistic) I have this thing fixed.

Try and loosen the screw, and use a magnet to pullout the broken piece. It likely slightly bent in there so you may need a pair of tweezers as well
Good luck!

    The hex screw is what you need to unloosen. you might have lost the tool for it in the move , or god forbid the manf. didn't include it ( an oversight I'm sure)
    Is it in the front of where you'd normally insert the needle? If so you may want to go to the hardware store and get a long handled hex screwdriver (I have 3 for my Baby lock ;just in case) they are inexpensive, and pretty easy to find. Mine is a 1.5 MM
    I hope this helped a little more.

I have a elna pro 4 de serger. After changing the right needle. The stitches aren't forming. Please help anyone


Install a new needle. There could be something wrong with the needle (sometimes they are defective out of the package). Also, check that it is installed facing the correct direction and that it is pushed all the way up. Also be sure that you are using the right needle for your machine.

I have an elna 664 serger and I am experiencing skipped stitching. I am sewing thicker fabric, so I am assuming this might be the problem, but not sure. I was told it might be my timing but I am not sure...


SKIPPED STITCHES ON A SERGER
1. Is the needle bent or worn--replace
2. Is the needle inserted correctly into the needle holder--check needle
3. Is the Serger threaded correctly--rethread
4. Is the presser foot pressure right for the fabric--adjust
5. Possible timing problem--need to be checked at a sewing machine shop

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.
