Dear Louise I had the same problem and it was suggested to me that I change the needles as one of them could be bent. I have done this and the problem is no more. Good luck sewhat

You need to take a drawing of the plug on the machine and go into any sewing machine shop to match it up

SOURCE: new 344 elna overlocker - can't thread lower

I have been dealing with the exact same problem for 2 hours and no answers!! I have just discovered that if you move the stitch width finger to R instead of N, your threader will work!! Hope this helps :)

Good evening madam
It sounds like there is something wrong with the electrical system in your sewing machine. You can check the power and connections.
good luck

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.
