Question about Sewing Machines
I have lost my manual, and for several years have only used my overlocker to finish seams. I really need to find out how to sew a rolled hem on this 30+ year old which stills runs as well as the day I bought it.
If you put the make and model number with the word Manual, into a google search, you may be able to find a manual online. Some are free, some are copies and cost a bit.. but there are tons of them out there.
You might also try contacting Elna.. some companies, sometimes, have copies of older manuals available or might be able to direct you to a shop that could show you how it works.

Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
Here's a link to this great service

This may be too small to read, if so, email via
www.bargainbox.com.au and I shall send it on........remember to only ever use the R needle, so you only have 3 threads.
To move the Rolled hem arm, you will need to release the upper knife (knob on left inside cover....push to the right and blade moves approx 6mm) so you can slide the small metal tongue to correct position for:
N = Normal
R = Rolled

SOURCE: rolled hem or rolled edge
You need to disengage the cutting blade by openingfirstly opening the front and left hand side covers. pull on the larger of the two silver knobs and slide the red lever towards you. I'm not sure what the tension settings are, but I'm certain you need to reduce them a fair bit to aid in the rolling effect. I only use 3 threads when doing a rolled hem.
My description isn't too detailed but I hope it helps!

This one is in 3 languages, but it is worth the read. The diagram to choose the patterns from the frony of the machine are on page 28. Hope this helps.

"World of Sewing" have these manuals.....you need to ask for "Toyota SL series". I got my replacement manual from them and the service is excellent. Their phone number is online if you want to ring them (UK ) Hope this is helpful to you

Many of the new models do not require oiling.
Check the maintenace section of the manual for cleaning the shuttle area. Sometimes lint can build up and cause the machine to get noisy.
If it has been over a year since the machine was serviced, it may be time for a proffesional tune-up.
