You can order a new hardcover manual for $15 from Singer. But, maybe, it would help you you called customer service at 1-800-4singer and they can tell you all of the colors for your copy then you can mark it for free. Worth a try.

How do I get a balanced tension with my Elna 624 overlocker?


The best way is to thread with 4 separate colors of thread and then studying the stitch result. With the 4 colors, you can easily tell which thread tension is "off" and whether it should be tightened or loosened. However, a serger is not like a sewing machine where you can set the tension and use that setting for most projects. With a serger, a change in one or a couple of thread tensions will create a totally different stitch.

For most machines, there is a mark at the midway point on each tension control that is the "optimal" tension for a 4-thread overlock. HOWEVER, every machine differs, so these settings may need to be tweaked.

Different Serger Stitches and How to Use Them

You may want to download the serger workbooks at this site (Bernina), and work through each of the stitches. Make notes in the workbook as to how you have set up your machine to get the best of each stitch. This will be a great reference manual for many years.

I need a manuel for an Elna 411 serger


I could not find a manual for this model, but did find a fairly universal guide at Singer - http://www.singerco.com/pdf/14SH654_threading.pdf

A very good book for sergers from threading to maintenance is Nancy Zieman's Serge With Confidence.

Raise the antenna to it's highest position.

Raise the presser foot and set the tensions (if not auto tension) to zero.

Thread in the order indicated in the download or on the front of the serger/inside serger door.

I don't have the manual for Singer serger model # 14U555 and cannot get it threaded correctly.


I couldn't find a link to anywhere to get the manual free, but it's available for purchase from Singer here. They do have a serger threading guide here that may be helpful.

Hope this helps a little. Thanks for usin Fixya!

Could not adjust both looper thread tention on singer ultralock


When servicing these machines I have found that the cover over the tensioners needs to be removed so you can see if there is more adjusting possible. If its a newer serger you would hold the knob somewhere in the middle (4-5) and adjust the knurled part that goes through it. Many times I have had to rebuild these tensioners as they get dirty and need cleaning and adjusting. It may take many tries until you have it adjusting correctly. But it needs to be done.
