This is a very exacting mechanical adjustment, don't try this repair yourself especially on a overlocker. More than likely you won't be able to get the correct tools to do the repair. Get this machine to a sewing machine repair shop.

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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Elna Lock L1 won't keep thread chain

for a manual try elna customer service
as for the needle, check to see if it's inserted correctly in the needle holder
the needle must be pushed all the way up into the needle holder--
the flat side goes to the back side of the machine
you also mentioned that you broke a needle, when a needle is broken some times it can cause the machine to go out of time, which means it has to be taken to a sewing machine repair shop & be retimed,,
and it needs to be serviced.

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
