SOURCE: threading elna

Cannot understand the dealers attitude?
Have a look at this website, they have a threading page, if your machine is not listed email them and they will help.
Sorry not to be more helpfull but it would be impossible for me to explain how to thread your machine on here.

Have you made sure the needle thread is the last to be threaded. If this thread is still under the loopers when you rethread, the threads will break .Sewit

SOURCE: Threading an Empisal Overlocker - Model S4D

All sergers thread the same way and sergers have to be threaded in a certain order. I made a jingle out of it...
upper looper
lower looper
right needle
left

It would be best to have a tweezers handy to help with the thread and threading.

always be sure the lower looper thread goes over the top of the upper looper then out the back. I would be surprised if your thread guides are not color coded.
If you look at the top thread guides or the spools. First from left to right thread the 3rd spool, then the fourth spool. Then you thread the right needle (the second spool) then the left needle (1st spool.
The lower looper can be tricky because you have to thread it from the back of the looper to the front.
Pull the threads out the back from under the foot. Then go ahead and run it slow watching to see if it starts making a chain. It should. If not do it over again.
Good luck

SOURCE: Hi, I am unable to do a overlock stitch , elna l1

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.

How do I thread the elna 344D overlocker the picture doesn't explain where the cotton goes


Search for:

Make Model threading

Even if it is not your specific model, most overlockers (especially within the same brand and like models) will thread the same or very similarly. Just be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading. Also, thread each thread IN THE ORDER specified. Threading the threads out of order will cause havoc AND intense frustration!

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.
