Check with sewusa for a threading guide and manual.

Look inside the font door of the machine to see if there is a threading guide.

Either the lower knife is too far to the left or your looper tensions are too loose. Check the position of the knife first.

Although overlocker is correctly threaded it does not form a chain


here's a link for a manual
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-book-elna-t33.aspx
try changing the needles & see if that helps the machine to form
a proper stitch, if it doens't then it's possible that the machine
could be out of time & needs to be checked at a sewing machine

What should the tension settings be for Elna Club 4D overlocker


Hi Nikita86,

Do you perhaps still have a scanned copy of the Club 4D overlocker?

I'm not sure how to thread my machine, I lost my manual elna lock pro 5Dc


I would suggest that you buy a new manual for this as your overlocker has 5 threads that need to be threaded up correctly to form a stitch and there are several different stitches that can be made with this model such as a rolled hem, chain stitch, three thread overlock, four thread overlock and safety stitch with three thread overlock, lots to learn.

You can buy a manual here for $USD14.99: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-elna-pro5dc.aspx
or this website has a copy for $USD10.
http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Elna_Manuals/Pro_4DC_DE_Instruction_Manual.htm

Always well worth buying the manual and saving a lot of frustration trying to guess how things work and it adds value if you are going to sell the item.

You can get some general overlocker threading tips from http://sewing.about.com/od/sergersoverlock/ss/serger.htm which may help you too.

I've got an Elna 634 overlocker, and want to turn


Just trim the fabric to the desired hem length plus one inch, then overlock around this raw edge with thread close colour match to the fabric.

You then have the choice of either stitching around with a stretch stitch on your sewing machine, or hand sewing.

Being lycra shouldn't change how you hem them unless the trouser leg is extremely close fitting and the hem seam is going to be under tension.

My first choice would be using a twin needle in straight stitch from top side but this finish can pop/break if the hem is under tension. But perfect for most knit hems.

If you hand sew then you can turn up hem allowance and put a length of fusible hemming web inside the hem allowance and press it to hold. Then do a back stitch hand sew around to hold hem in place.

If you sew with the regular sewing machine, then use either the stretch stitch or a very small zig zag, and a ball point or stretch needle.

On ready to wear you would see a coverstitch hem but your overlocker doens't have this stitch.
