Impossible to explain how to time a sewing machine you need to be shown. Basically it entails setting the needle depth then making sure the hook passes just above the eye of the needle at a set height as the needle is rising, this ensures the hook catches the upper thread. Also the hook needs to be set a specific distance from the needle. Sounds easy but sometimes it can be very difficult and fiddly job.

Can I retime my Elna T34d myself


All the info on the machine can be gleaned from http://www.sewingnz.com/elna-lock-t34-t34d-overlocker-instruction-manual/ I am not too sure what you mean by retime. You are not suggesting that you want to reset the feed/ insert/ etc timings are you?

Model 4075 white sewing machine problem with thread from bobbin


1. Replace thread with good thread. (Check by holding to light to see if there is fuzz).
2. Adjust the bobbin tension. The tension on top is set to three and the bobbin tension should be equal to this amount.
3. Replace needle.
4. Check the top tension with tension foot down to see if the thread can move or does it get stuck? If it gets stuck the tension control may need adjusted or cleaned.
5. Pull the bobbin thread above the throat plate and pull on the thread. It must have some tension but not get stuck.
TENSION TENSION TENSION IS THE PROBLEM!
