Question about Elna 1010

1 Answer

I have an old (about 1985) elna contessa MO 103 overlocker which has recently been serviced and was running perfectly before I moved house. In the move the it became unthreaded and now the seccond thread keeps breaking after only a few stitches. I have lost the chart to tell me which order to thread the machine in.

You put one drop of oil in any joint that has a hole in it, or anything that slides or pivots.

I have a Contessa MO-104 Elna overlocker and I have lost the power cord. Anyone know where I can get a new one?

contact the manufacturer on line and see if it available
However most power cords have similar ends so try a sewing service centre for a generic power cord.

Hi My name is Karyn my email [email protected]
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.
