Question about Elna 1010
When I release the presser foot (down) it goes VERY slowly and does not seem to go all the way down, therefore the material is not tight against the plate. Is this a cleaning issue?
This is a cleaning issue. There is gummy residue holding your presser foot bar which needs to be cleaned out. Unfortunately, you need to split the case on your machine to access it for cleaning and this is best done by a qualified technician. Let's face it, it's probably been a long time since the machine was serviced anyway and they do work better with regular servicing.
