Question about Elna 945 Computerized Sewing Machine

The presser foot lever on my Elna 945 is breaking/broken. I have ordered a replacement part and I'm wondering if I can do the replacement myself. Or should I take it to a pro?

Here is a link to the service manual for the 925 http://www.arizonaexpressionz.com/elna_service/925_704%20suppl.%20service%20manual.pdf

I can't see one for the 945 but the above manual may give you some guidance as to what the replacment involves.

945 is a fairly new model so you may find that taking it to a pro and getting the timing and loopers checked at the same time is worthwhile. Also being computerised model, if you get something wrong and the computerised part is affected it could turn out more expensive to then take it to an Elna dealer.

I get my Bernette serger serviced every 2 years and it is now over 19 years old, and still performing well.

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.

Hi, My Elna 7000 doesn't easily feed medium or thin fabrics. Presser Foot tension lever is position 2 and the Feed Dog is rising normally. Any thoughts please? Does the F Dog wear out in any way?


Generally, the lighter the fabric weight, the heavier the presser foot pressure. Yes, feed dogs do wear with use. Do not run the machine without fabric between the presser foot and the feed dogs--the feed dogs constantly rubbing against the presser foot will quickly wear the feed dog points. Store the machine with the presser foot down with a pad between the presser foot and feed dogs (even a scrap piece of fabric will do). Also, be sure to clean the feed dogs of any gunky build-up. If the feed dog points are worn, it may be worthwhile to have them replaced.

How do we fix reverse lever on Elna 3230 sewing machine?


This sounds like a job for a repair shop. More than likely the presser foot lever is broken internally. Newer model or not. I think a repair shop will be able to repair this easily.

I have a Elna Pro 945 serger. I would like to use the piping foot #396013-82 however I don't have the directions on how to use the foot. Please let me know where I can get directions., Thank you Greta


try this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bC-bJE5zwzw&feature=related for movie of a Pfaff piping foot in action, the principal would be similar, you are wrapping bias strip around cording on left of foot and overlocking right side. You can also do this with fabric top and botton thereby inserting the piping as you make it.

I have not tried this technique myself as I've only bought a blind hem foot for my Bernina but must admit I have used that a bit in the past.

Most serging techiques are very similar across the brands.

Try contacting Elna directly, or find your nearest agent thru their website, if in USA ....here

having this photo should help trace a part number if you can get onto an Elna service technician, if it were Janome, I could look up our references, so it should be straightforward.
