How to thread the 945 elna serger for roll hemming

The instructions should be in the manual. Unfortunately, Elna manuals are usually not free, so unable to locate one online. However, this video may be helpful. How sergers do stitches is pretty similar across the board:

Hi, I have an Elna Supermatic model 722010 and the upper tension spring has broken! I am in South Africa and need a solution to fix it. Is there any way I can make this thin wire apparatus? Thanks...

Hi Fiona,
Have you tried Elna in RSA - always worth asking the central head office for a brand first, they may be able to supply the part or direct you to a local Elna dealer who can supply and fit it.

If that isn't an option then you could try this website to source the part He is the old Swiss Elna specialist in USA and has a wide range of spares in stock. However, you'll need technical knowledge to fit it.

The other option is to join the Yahoo group called "Elna Heirlooms" and then ask the members there for assistance. They are usually pretty helpful to genuine Elna owners of these old Swiss machines.

However, I'd try to find an Elna dealer firstly, I recently purchased the screws for the bobbin case for the same model as you from a service person in NZ, he knew exactly what I wanted and was able to supply them. I found him on Trademe, their Ebay equivalent. The old Sewing Machine Guys are priceless.

Left needle stitches not being caught by looper

Is the tension on the left needle on its normal setting and is the thread feeding okay to this needle, not caught up somewhere on the aerial or around the cone?

You could try unthreading everything, changing the needles, then rethreading the machine again in the sequence of the threading diagram and test sew.

However, if you have had this machine for a while and are very used to threading it and this seems like a fault to you, then it could be that the looper has been knocked out of timing and it would need a trip to the sewing shop to investigate further.

The presser foot lever on my Elna 945 is breaking/broken. I have ordered a replacement part and I'm wondering if I can do the replacement myself. Or should I take it to a pro?

here is a link to the service manual for the 925

I can't see one for the 945 but the above manual may give you some guidance as to what the replacment involves.

945 is a fairly new model so you may find that taking it to a pro and getting the timing and loopers checked at the same time is worthwhile. Also being computerised model, if you get something wrong and the computerised part is affected it could turn out more expensive to then take it to an Elna dealer.

I get my Bernette serger serviced every 2 years and it is now over 19 years old, and still performing well.
