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

SOURCE: serger blades do not cut.

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.

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.

Check to make sure you have the right size needle for sergers. Your blades may not be align properly.

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

Elna 704 serger sews well but cutter won't cut. replaced cutter -- same problem


Make sure that the blades are being held firmly together. I have seen the knob used to lower the moving blade come loose and releases much of the pressure intended to hold the blades together.  If so, the set screws on knob have come loose.

My viking serger 905 wont cut


Sometimes the blades need to be adjusted. Lower them all the way manually to the bottom. The cutters if you look on the side should meet. If they don't' meet or if there is a small space then the upper cutter needs to be lowered.
There are screws that hold this in place. You might need a man to help since the screws on my machine are very tight!
