Lasted 3 uses before packing it in

published

Bought on sale from spotlight.
Worked fine the first time
A little noisy the second time
3rd time was louder and more threatening than a freight train in steroids
Return process was excruciating despite the unit being less than a month old- was VERY disappointed with this given the excellence if my other Elna machines over many decades.

A great work horse, love it

published

I have made over 150 three layer masks, heavy duty bags and lightweight materials and love it. Best to watch a video to thread - look on you tube, it really is a breeze to thread. Tension is easily adjusted if need be. Yet to use some of the functions, very happy with this purchase.

Purchased in at Spotlight for $450.

Good design.

published

I was told this is the same machine although it looks a bit different... This is my first overlocker and I've been very pleased with the way it functions. It gets clunky with extra heavyweight fabric but anything thinner than a single layer towel is a breeze. The only design flaws I notice are 1. The tools are stored internally where there are many moving parts so if one were to fall out it could cause serious damage (as mine did)... And 2. The hooks that keep the off-cut catcher attached are SO fickle. Just look at it wrong and it will topple off and spill cuttings everywhere lol https://streamable.com/kkckyn

Stitch length and Diff not working after a rolled hem

published

Up till now my Elna 664pro has been wonderful. But after doing a rolled hem (that was beautiful) the machine no longer adjusts stitch length and the differential also not working. I am not new to sewing, taught dressmaking and overlocking techniques at an evening college for 18 years. Updated to Elna pro from Elna 614DE that I gave way as it was still in good condition. I have a Janome Cover pro 1000CP as well as a Singer Serger and Janome sewing machine both 30 years old. The problem Elna 664 PRO is stitching well but no stitch length or differential... I will get onto Elna tomorrow but wonder anyone else experienced this???

I haven't used it a lot but when I do am very pleased with its operation

published

I have one big fault with it and that is rethreading the lower looper. until I got on your website and saw the lady doing it. Your instructions in your manual in this regard are not easy to understand. Your need a picture, or at least a video to show how it is done.

Purchased in at Elizabeth sewing centre - Hobart.

WONDERFUL MACHINE

published

Not being a fan of Janome, I surprised myself ending up with this overlocker. However, it has been terrific and sewn all types of fabrics for me. I use it regularly and pre-sew all my seams with it when making clothing of all types. It glides like a breeze through any type of material, even the sheerest of sheers. I just love this machine, this is a keeper and wouldn't want to ever part with it. Very happy and have owned it now for around 3 years.

Very pleased

published

I have always been pleased with the Elba sewing machine hence choosing the Elna 664 Pro overlocker. I like how all the settings are displayed on the machine it saves reading the book! It took me a while to work out how to thread it but after that I haven’t looked. A good machine at a reasonable price for an occasional sewer like me.

WONDERFUL!

published

Elna 664 PRO overlocker is easy to thread compared to my pretty old model. It makes perfect overlock stitches with almost any thread and easily transforms from 4/3 thread overlock to rolled edge and there are many specialty feet available. It is stable and has minimal vibration even when run at full speed but I do suggest that one does not run an overlocker at full speed as doing so may cause skipped stitches. The PRO is well engineered and built. I got it at a Spotlight sale and as a VIP there was a second discount...great value.

This is an exceptional Overlocker Machine!

published

This machine is easy to thread, it makes perfect overlock stitches with almost any thread, it easily transforms from 4/3 thread overlock to rolled edge and there are many specialty feet available for the 664 Pro. It is designed to have minimal vibration even when run at full speed (however I do suggest on does not run an overlocker at full speed, doing so avoids skipped stitches). This model is well built, well engineered and is usually sold at a great value.

Wonderful simple overlocker

published

This machine really gets you making things without needing to refer to the manual too often. It stitches beautifully and is quiet. I am delighted with it.

Straightforward to thread. The built in dial is low tech but genius. Also, the on-board storage is a huge plus for messy people like me.

Love it!

published

The perfect partner for my Elna sewing machine. So easy to use, so easy to retension and change threads. The instruction panel on the front sold me when I was comparing different brands and models. Seriously, couldn't be a better machine. And I got it on sale at Spotlight before the price went up another hundred dollars.
Very Very Happy

Ever since new the tension is wrong. I live in th wheat belt wa. I took it to our nearest sewing machine shop (not elna) and they had trouble and it is still not right. Unable to use on good projects. Because of where i live it is hard to get anyone to help.

Why are the two right threads the only ones being used up??

They are the 2 that do the major stitching and the other two are almost a straight line stitch. I swap mine around to balance the usage.

Elna 664 / 664 Pro

Details · 

Features:

  • The Elna 664 and the Elna 664 Pro are overlockers that both have adjustable foot pressure and electronic foot control, letting you adjust the speed of your overlocking so you can finish seams efficiently and comfortably.
  • A self-threading lower looper on both models does some of the work for you.
  • Colour-coded threading routes help you easily track where each thread (you can use 3 or 4 simultaneously) goes, making threading the machine easier.
  • Both models come with an exclusive Elna accessory box and a dust cover, so that you can keep your haberdashery organised and your machine clean.
  • The Elna 664 Pro has all the features of the Elna 664, but also has automatic tension release, a tilting needle clamp, a pre-tension slider, and a waste tray, letting you more easily guide fabric through the machine and keep your work area tidy.

Points of praise:

  • Most reviewers found that the Elna 664 and 664 Pro were a breeze to thread. This was partly thanks to the colour-coded components that made it easy to follow where thread had to go.
  • Reviewers also found that the machine could effectively serge a variety of fabrics, from delicate silks to more heavy-duty, upholstery fabrics.
  • They found that it was easy to adjust the settings, particularly the tension of the threads.
