Question about Elna 1010

1 Answer

My elna 9000 says something like bRe and will not sew. How can I fix this?

I unscrew a little behind the foot and then tried to rescreew it. I was trying to get a new walking foot to fit on it. Then this bRe comes up and none of the button will work and it will not sew.

    Thanks. It was the batteries. I took it to the shop and found out the batteries were corroded and have caused signifigant damage.

    Where are the batteries?

I am not sure which machine you are using, but I have an Elna 9000. The only code I have ever seen come up on the screen is "btr" which signifies that the batteires for the electronic memory are running low. My machine will continue to sew, but this code comes up every time I turn the machine on - then the machine sets itself up normally and will sew fine. Plus, changing the batteries cancels all the memorized information on my machine.

I am not sure if this is the same code you are getting. My Elna 9000 manual does not list any other codes for the machine.

Have you taken your machine to a service dealer to have them check it out?
Best of luck. I know it is frustrating when you are in the middle of a project and have to stop to have your machine serviced.

it's definitely not suppose to be jumping ahead.
have you checked the foot your using on the machine to make sure it's on correctly?
you might also check the feed dogs to see if there in the up position, in the needle plate.

GOOD DAY, THE ELNA 9000 WHICH I HAVE JUST BOUGHT 2ND HAND HAS A PROBLEM WITH THE PRESSSURE FOOT HANDLE. IT DOES NOT STAY IN PLACE, BUT KEEPS ON FALLING DOWN, AS IF A SPRING IS WORN OUT AND THE COTTON MAKES...


No pressure being applied to the pressure foot and therefore the fabric between it and the feed dogs means no feeding of the fabric.

The pressure foot has a spring up inside the head of the machine and this is probably broken causing this fault.

I would suggest that you take the machine to your local SM service technician..

I have for gotten how to make the machine sew and im having trouble threading a bobbin for my moms machine elna 7000 i need a manual or a quick note to get started


YOu can down load a manual from here http://www.arizonaexpressionz.com/elna_instruction_manuals/Elna7000.pdf

Just remember to click the bobbin thread into the tension device correctly and hold the two threads behind the pressure foot when you start each seam - Elna top loading bobbins give great stitch quality but you just need to keep stray threads out or they'll jam up.

Also, you must use the Elna plastic bobbin that the manual specifies for this machine - the 5000, 7000 and 9000 were Elna Tavaro Switzerland's first foray into computerised machines and first released in 1986.

Also, please check the manual when you go to buy twin needles, there are two types now as computerised machines usually need the twin needles offset from the shaft position. They have red or black plastic block between the shaft and the twin needles - I think you need the red ones but just double check the manual to make sure. And you can't do all the wide stitches with a twin needle as it will strike the foot.

Hope this helps a little.

Elna 9000 sews automatically


Most likely this is a problem in the foot control and it will need to be replaced or repaired.
