Cannot understand the dealers attitude?
Have a look at this website, they have a threading page, if your machine is not listed email them and they will help.
Sorry not to be more helpfull but it would be impossible for me to explain how to thread your machine on here.

Thread lower looper on Elna 624 DSE. I have manual, still can't do it.


are you using a wire threader or tweezers to thread up? also some overlockers have a slide mechanisim on the looper so you can get to the eyelet, not familiar with this model but your manual should show the threading method. I usually turn the flywheel so the lower looper is all the way to the left and thread up the lower thread carrier, then turn flywheel again to move it to the right, then using the wire threader, I hook the thread from the left and bring it over to the right side, then thread up the looper eye. Hope that makes sense to you

How do I sell problems


tension on an Elna L4 overlocker (or serger in USA) is controlled with the four dials on the front of the machine, an overlocker has a tension dial for each thread (usually 3, 4 or 5) and the mid range setting will be 5 on each dial. It is critical to lift the thread pole to its maximum height and follow the threading diagram correctly taking the thread from the cone, through the thread eyelets on the pole, then usually a thread carrier on top of the machine, down and around the tension dial, then usually through another couple of thread carriers until reaching the needle or loopers. Many overlockers will have a threading diagram inside the front looper cover and will use colour coding on the components so you can see where each thread goes.

I'm not sure how to thread my machine, I lost my manual elna lock pro 5Dc


I would suggest that you buy a new manual for this as your overlocker has 5 threads that need to be threaded up correctly to form a stitch and there are several different stitches that can be made with this model such as a rolled hem, chain stitch, three thread overlock, four thread overlock and safety stitch with three thread overlock, lots to learn.

You can buy a manual here for $USD14.99: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-elna-pro5dc.aspx
or this website has a copy for $USD10.
http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Elna_Manuals/Pro_4DC_DE_Instruction_Manual.htm

Always well worth buying the manual and saving a lot of frustration trying to guess how things work and it adds value if you are going to sell the item.

You can get some general overlocker threading tips from http://sewing.about.com/od/sergersoverlock/ss/serger.htm which may help you too.

I have an elna overlock Pro 5DC, which I bought new years ago. The dealer went out of business, and with her the repairman who knew Elnas. When mine developed a problem, I had it serviced by an all-brand...


If you google elna overlock pro 5dc, I found this site and you can download your manual for $10, hopefully it will help you.http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/30251842-elna-pro-5-dcde-sewing-machine-owner
It is so frustrating to have a great machine and no one can help you. Good luck

I have been dealing with the exact same problem for 2 hours and no answers!! I have just discovered that if you move the stitch width finger to R instead of N, your threader will work!! Hope this helps :)

Hi, I am unable to do a overlock stitch , elna l1


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.
