It could be that there is a loose piece of thread, or some fluff which is obstructing the tension gauge. Try blowing around the theading area (or even run the hoover pipe near it to see if you can **** it out). I cleared mine by folding a piece of non fluffy material and rubbing gently between the tension dial and machine.

You may need a magnifying glass to see the tiny hook that should pass through the needle eye to catch the thread....
....if it is not aligned properly and does not go through the eye you will need to realign it....
...there may be a small screw attaching the mechanism, loosen slightly with jewelers screwdriver so you can move it but there is still some friction and gently engage the needle threader to see how far you need to move it, then gently, using a fine screwdriver, tweesers etc, nudge the tiny hook a little, check result and continue to adjust until remedied....re-tighten screw.
If there is no screw adjustment, a gentle bending will resolve the problem............but if there is no tiny hook, it will need replacing.
They are not easily broken, but only use gentle pressure to be sure.

If you tighten up your needle thread, reduce the tension of the needle thread.
For embroidery, and zig-zag, and because the needle makes side movements, it needs more needle thread.
So try to keep you needle thread not very tight,
and tight up your bobbin case tension more, so that the two threads meet under the meterial.

make sure your top thread is feeding properly and not catching on the spool or twisting as it comes off the spool. When i use metalic thread, i put it in a small can beside my machine and it works great.

Computerized machines need to be serviced by an authorized sewing machine technician, preferably Elna.
Diving into this may cause more problems and end up costing you more money for repair.
