SOURCE: Help, Janome Ezy Lock 304D Overlocker!

Although the tension units on your machine are of a different configuration, always thread from the right spool first and then each one to the left.........ONLY in that sequence !

now take a look at this sewusa site for a better view of the actual routine through the thread guides.........as I say, the tension units are different, but the sequence is the same, just use the image from above to see which one is next........this chart, just as the one on the fold down cover of your machine need to be followed one thread at a time from R to L

If you want any more help with this, just post back here, or, drop a line through the "Contact Us" page at www.bargainbox.com.au

SOURCE: motor for my Bernette 335 overlocker

Yes, motors for sewing machines are very easy to replace with suitable replacements. They are quite common in other industries and the specs are pretty much identical. Happily a sewing machine motor is rather easy to replace compared to most other assemblies on it. I will always urge you to take it to your locally certified Bernina dealer or contact one online, make sure to confirm your model and serial number and a replacement can be sent out to you. Sergers are a bit tricky in taking the covers off and ensuring minimal damage to the plastic so I would recommend you take it to a service tech first before trying yourself.

SOURCE: Threading an Empisal Overlocker - Model S4D

All sergers thread the same way and sergers have to be threaded in a certain order. I made a jingle out of it...
upper looper
lower looper
right needle
left

It would be best to have a tweezers handy to help with the thread and threading.

always be sure the lower looper thread goes over the top of the upper looper then out the back. I would be surprised if your thread guides are not color coded.
If you look at the top thread guides or the spools. First from left to right thread the 3rd spool, then the fourth spool. Then you thread the right needle (the second spool) then the left needle (1st spool.
The lower looper can be tricky because you have to thread it from the back of the looper to the front.
Pull the threads out the back from under the foot. Then go ahead and run it slow watching to see if it starts making a chain. It should. If not do it over again.
Good luck

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.

Problem with an overlocker that does not overlock


You may need to rethread all the threads because most sergers need to be threaded in the right sequence. I looks like this one has to be threaded starting at the right and progressing left.

I have a contessa,MO.104 overlocker,i really need a manual can any one help me please,thanks,JUDY


Hi My name is Karyn my email karyndiana@hotmail.com
I can help you thread the Elna over locker. Write to me at my email. Once threaded with 4 dirfferent colours find a scrap of medium weight fabric and sew few inches/ 10 cm or so, it is then easy to see which threads appear loose and which appear tight. For the actual overlocked edge the two threads ought to weave together and meet eachother on the cut edge of the fabric.tighten on colour and loosed the other until they meet on the edge. with the outside needle and the (under) 'arm' below which make the 'chain' seem you will also see using diffrerent coloured threads, if the chain is loose tighten the tension for that thread - usually the 'arm' tension. For any further help email me as I may not find my way back to this site.
If you can help me I'm currently looking for a Blade for an Elna MO 104 over locker.

You could just buy a freestanding thread stand to put behind your machine? The stands are marketing for those who do machine embroidery with lots of colours but I'm sure you could just lop off every second spool holder to make room for your overlocking cones, pop on your cone holders and away you go, to see one, go to www.ebay.com.au and search for this item no 300533236347.
