How do you thread an elna contessa 415. I have lost the manual and I don't seem to be able to find one. So if someone could send me a diagram of the threading instructions it would solve my problem.

Set the stitch width to zero or set for straight stitch, as opposed to zig zag or button hole.

How to get Brother sewing machine apart to replace spool spindle.


To be honest the best thingon such instructions is the manual which is provided along with the machines,but many people don't have it , probably because they have lost the manual orthey have got the machine as a used one and forgot to take the manual alongwith it.

Please follow the belowinstructions :-

Close to the end of theHandwheel , there is usually a spindle, at the back of the machine.

This is where you need to restthe spool on and you would notice it sitting perfectly.

In case the length of the spindleis less , then pull it up gently with your fingers.

Also there are machines these dayswhich have easy to replace facilities , so the spindles just slide intothe machine for safety norms when you put the machine away.

Therefore , all you need to do it pullit up and it would be fine.

An example of a manual forbrother's sewing machine can be found in the below link which would give you anidea of how exactly it's done.

I can't understand how to thread lower looper (red) The instructions on the cover are very unclear


Sounds like you are trying to thread a serger or overlock. I would be helpful if you offered up the model number. However, a few things I've learned.

Sergers MUST be threaded in ORDER. Failure to do so will break your looper (had it happen)

In other words if you break one of the 4 or 5 threads... you have to un-thread all the other points and begin with Thread 1, then do thread 2, etc., etc.,

If you would give me the Make and model number of your serger... I will be happy to see if I can find your manual and threading guide for you.

I do not have a manual and can thread for needles but the two other threads are a mysteryonce I get to the last bit the machine cuts but does not sew therefore I cannot be doing the threading properly...


First, you can search for a manual for your machine by searching with the make, model number, and the word manual. Like "Elna 6003 manual", and chances are you can at very least find a paper one to buy, but often now you can find free downloads in pdf format.

Then, most machines require that the needle be put in with the flat side to the back. If you're doing that, then check that you're threading from front to back. I can't remember about the one machine I used years ago that threaded from side to side, but it was probably the same, with the thread going from the rounded side of the needle to the flat side. But first, try searching for a manual. And are you using cheap thread? It's not worth the time it takes to thread the machine. Get at least Coats and Clark general purpose thread, if not something better.

I have an Elna 745 serger/overlock machine. Whenever I'm doing a double cover stitch hem, when I'm at the end, the thread release lever does not release the thread. To release it, I have to cut the...


There are two methods to release the cover stitch with sufficient slack in the thread. Since you are using the thread release lever, did you set the Brown tension dial to zero? Before changing the tension, you have to first lower the needles to their lowest position in the fabric with the hand wheel and then turn the hand wheel backwards to bring the needles to the highest point in the cycle.

The other method may work better for you. Bring the needles to the highest point in the cycle and lift the presser foot. Then slide a thin object (a sewing ruler, for example) between the presser foot and the feed dogs and pull the needle thread towards you. Cut the needle threads Then pull the fabric away from you before cutting the looper threads.

Both of these options are described on page 98 of the manual, which is available from Elna. The current link to the manual is http://www.elnausa.com/data/files/2_users/55/Inst_Book_745_%28E-F-G-I%29.pdf . Pictures for the second method are available here: https://www.seamwork.com/issues/2015/06/coverstitch-machines . (Ending the double cover stitch hem is the same as that for the single cover stitch.)

I hope this helps.
