At your Elna dealer, at just about any sewing machine repair service, or if you don't have one locally, try Ron Anderson at A1 Sewing:

Make sure power is turned off. Get a pair of pointy nose pliers (may need to try a couple of sizes to get correct one). Use these to get hold of the metal light base and remove. Will probably need to turn base to release. Then insert new bulb.

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.

Thread the lower looper like normal, and you needle. When the upper looper comes up it will push up the lower thread and then you can put it under the pressure foot torward the back and start to serge.

Is the tension on the left needle on its normal setting and is the thread feeding okay to this needle, not caught up somewhere on the aerial or around the cone?

You could try unthreading everything, changing the needles, then rethreading the machine again in the sequence of the threading diagram and test sew.

However, if you have had this machine for a while and are very used to threading it and this seems like a fault to you, then it could be that the looper has been knocked out of timing and it would need a trip to the sewing shop to investigate further.

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.

The thread is bit loose while you are stitching .Keep the thread tight then check reverse side it will be perfect.
The procedure is as follows:--
The triple cover hems flattens the over-lock seam eliminating excess bulk and allows maximum stretch and comfort.The top stitching is quick and attractive.
Sew ribbing to the fabric using 3 thread wide or safely 4 threaded stitch.Then set up the machine for triple cover hem.The seam may be positioned either towards ribbing or towards the garment fabric.top stitch by allowing the center needle to stitch in the ditch .The outer needles will top stitch on the fabric and on the ribbing in one step.
Note:-- It is acceptable to use cover hem wide for top stitching and over-lock seam.The chain looper  thread should be tightened to keep the over-lock seam as flat as possible.This will make the reverse seam look perfect.When the looper thread is tightened the fabric may pucker and the capacity of stretch is decreased.
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
