Purchased an Elna Pro 925 DCX and it was missing the sewing cover to do sewing without using the blades. This is a plastic cover piece that snaps on to the machine when coverstiching. Where can I fing this part?

Elna tsp presser foot does not move when the lever is moved up or down. I suspect it's unhooked inside. Is there a way for me to get inside to check it?


there is a spring on the presser foot applying pressure when you release the lever, so that there is constant downward pressure onto the fabric from the foot as you stitch. If there seems to be no pressure on the presser foot, then this spring may have broken. If this is a Star series TSP with a beige top and white body, then you undo screws on the top panel to gain access. There is also a TSP in the Air Electronic later model range, there is also two screws on top but you need to work around the carry handle to actually lift and move the top panel to the back of the machine. I'd suggest this could be a job for the SM repair mechanic.

Pressure foot won't stay up


The presser foot lift lever on many newer janome sewing machines will wear out with use. It can easily be replaced by a sewing machine repair shop or Janome dealer. Or you can look online for a "presser foot lifter" or "presser foot lift lever" making sure to find the correct one for your machine.

I have a pfaff hobbylock 796.


Has any little kids been around lately? Have they had access to your sewing area and machine? (thinking perhaps the pressure foot tension has been tightened down) If it has been tightened, losen it a couple turns, see if that helps (remember, left to loosen, right to tighten)

When is the last time you oiled this machine? Typically sergers require a clean and oil each time you go to use them. Locate the bar that correlates to the presser foot add a drop of oil to the bar and let it seep in. After a few minutes try lifting the presser foot.

Also does the presser foot lever move at all?

How do I change the presser foot on an elna mini sewing machine?


I dodn't know your model really well but it will be one of the following:
a clip on foot that you just pull down on to remove,
a clip on foot with a button at the back of the pressure foot holder - press the button to release the foot
a clip on foot with a little lever at the back of the pressure foot holder - lift the lever to release the foot
If it is a clip on foot, then you just need to raise the pressure foot lever, put your fingers onto the pressure foot and press downwards, it should unclip.

To put one on, place the pressure foot onto the needle plate under the pressure foot bar and lower the pressure foot bar down onto the foot, lining up the base of the foot holder with the little bar on the foot, it should click into place.

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.

How do I move the presser foot on a Husqvarna Viking Emerald 116 sewing machine?


Not sure what exactly you need to know. Are you trying to lift the presser foot or change the presser foot to another one? If it is lifting, there will be a lever of some kind behind the machine. On one of my Husqvarna machines it was a big flat "paddle" shaped lever, not sure what shape it is on the Emerald machines. Lift the lever from the bottom upwards and outwards. Most Husqvarna machines have clip on-and-off feet. You just gently pull forwards on the foot (while the presser foot is raised) to remove it, then push the new one on making sure the small bar part of the presser foot goes into the clip on the presser foot ankle.

I dont know how to thread this serger. i dont


Have you opened the front of the serger to see if there is a threading guide.

Basically:

Lift the thread antenna to it's highest position.

Lift the presser foot and set the tensions to zero.

Turn the handwheel so the loopers are at their highest point.

Begin with the upper looper (first thread cone on the right/ end of looper is pointing toward the presser foot). .

Second spool is for the lower looper (end of looper is pointing away from the presser foot).

Third spool, right needle; fourth spool, left needle.

Be careful that the threads do not cross during the threading of the loopers.Follow all the guides, taking the thread under the presser foot and to the left side of the serger.

Set the tensions back to 3 - 6 and lower the presser foot. Sew a few inches and if the threads knit into a chain, you can then do a test sew with fabric.

Simplicity's Simply The Best Sewing Book has good information with regard to using a serger that you may find beneficial.

My 1034D Brother Serger foot raiser lever on


mine just did the same thing - i opened it up (you have to remove the light) and it's a small plastic piece that seems to be just glued into place to lift the pressure foot when it rotates... a bit disappointing - i will try glueing it back but i don't know if it will last for long. i am very disappointed!!!
