Why does my elna overlocker suddenly keeps on breaking the second yarn


There usually is not an easy fix for this.

Remove ALL the thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and then rethread from the beginning. Give each thread an extra little tug when going through the tension disk to make sure it seats completely. Make sure to thread each thread in order and that the thread pathway is correct for each.

I have an Elna Pro 4 DE overlocker and the thread keep breaking - I have re threaded a number of times now but the thread keeps breaking - it was working fine earlier today - what could be the proble


Try different thread (black thread seems to be more problematic because of the heavy dye). Perhaps, change the needles.

When you re-thread, do you completely remove all the thread and start from the beginning--there could be a snag somewhere or the thread is looped around something, ie the thread tree? ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading. Give each thread an extra little tug when going through the tension disk--it will sometimes make a little snap sound when it seats. Also, make sure you are threading each in the order specified. Threading out of order will generally guarantee a problem.

There is a slight chance something (thread bits, lint) could be stuck in the tension disk.

If it continues, you may want to take it for service as it could be the timing is off.

I'm having trouble properly threading my Elna 1010. Could you please help? The bobbin thread keeps bunching up and breaking


bunching of thread under the material is an indication of insufficient tension of the needle thread
increase the needle tension until the threads meet at the center of the materialbeing sewn

Where does the oil go in an Elna eXperience 450


Consult the owner's manual. As a computerized machine, it is important to oil ONLY as directed in the machine instructions. You may also contact an Elna dealer.

(FWIW, the only manuals for download I found were not free.) The instructions for the 320 and 520 do not specify oiling.

My thread on my elna sewing machine keeps breaking or coming loose :( I snapped a needle last night and now it keeps doing this :(


have you got all the pieces of the needle out? Check if the lower thread is not tangled up inside and that the thread tensioner is not blocked.

Threading an overlocker


Many things can cause the thread to break on a serger. Timing, position of the thread guides, poor thread, and improper tension. One common error is the failure to thread it in the proper order. If the needle are threaded before the lower looper they will cut your looper thread.

My thread keeps breaking, I have changed thread type but it still keeps happening, as I cannot find my manual could you please help? thanks


I suggest you change your needle and make sure you're using the right needle and thread combination for the fabric you're trying to sew. Also, don't use old thread. Exposure to sunlight and age weakens thread. If the tension on the top thread is way too tight that could make the thread break also.

Good luck and let me know if these suggestions help.
