Question about Elna Heirloom Edition 6005

1 Answer

Elna Supermatic MADE IN SWITZERLAND

Volts 115
AC & DC
AMP 0.85
WATTS 90(?)
TYPE 722010
Color light grey/drk grey

The problem that I am having is with the bottom thread. I will follow the manual that I just found on a website. I've now downloaded it. It is the same one I remember as a child. I am 53 and that is about how old my machine is. My mother used to sew 600 to 2000 flannel cloths for the school districts every summer with this machine to erase chalk off the chalkboards. She zigzagged them before sergers were invented. I will keep you in contact. Otherwise I need to have a repair manual for it and I am hoping I can find one. (Schematic if possible)

An excellent source of help with fixing elna is www.whitesewingcenter.com original elna parts, and when my rotary hook gear broke last year, i fixed myself with help of schematic. he also has manuals. may have yours. my elna is a 62C model from 1972. nothing like it. fabulous machine, and i have given it very heavy use the first 30 years. hope this helps. cheers

Where to get a user manual for Elna Supermatic 722010 sewing machine - vintage 1963-1964


Hi Beverly,
My suggestion is that you join up the Yahoo group called "Elna Heirlooms" you'll find lots of very helpful fellow supermatic owners there and probably what you are looking for too. Here is one page from the manual for threading the bobbin into tension, once you've mastered this on the Elnas, its the same for all the Swiss ones.

Yes, top threading is important, you need to get the thread into the tension discs and also the take up lever. Have you cleaned out the tension discs too? these do get gummed up with fibres and dye particles sometimes. Just turn tension down to zero and "floss" between discs with the selvage edge of a clean piece of waste cotton fabric.

Might see you over on Yahoo, several of the members there are really knowledgeable on these great machines.
cheers

Do I need the model no. to order a manuel. For the Elnasuper is this a model no. 7131 ?


The Swiss Elnas included several models called "Supermatic" and SU so it is good to identify your machine by the model number.

If you look at the Identification plate on the machine it should have a 2 digit model code and a serial number.

However, one of the very early machines was called a 722010.

If you browse www.whitesewingcenter.com you may find your manual available there. He is the Swiss Elna guru for old parts and accessories.

My "new" elna type 722010 only sews in reverse.


What is the stitch length lever set to (4 in the diagram below)? these models have a lever that slides from positive to negative (ie) reverse, so you need to set it to the positive area, between 2 and 3 above zero. If you move it below zero then it sews that stitch length backwards.

On my elna supermatic 722010 sewing machine, the thread makes the bobbin pop out and the thread get tangled underneath. I have had it fixed twice, which is expensive. Should I just get rid of it and buy...


not unless you can find another swiss elna, like star series su. check bobbin in right way, holes on top to wind and load. you havent bought anothet type bobbin??? go to www.arizonaexpressionz.com and download a manual for supermatic. then read bobbin winding and threading carefully and rewinf bobbin and thread up again. make sure thread goes into tension spring all the way. bobbin should turn anticlockwise when yoou pull thread. also please brush clean bobbin holder area and check for any threads caught there. now a drop of quality clear machine oil in middle hole and gently run for 30secs to work in. do this every time you get your machine out. there are several oiling points shown in manual. oil them. these machines are quality but yours may need love tlc from a elna tech especially if it has not been serviced in a while. but a well maintained elna will out stitch a new plastic machine any day in my humble opinion. if you want to join yahoo group elna heirlooms, experts who service their own and share photos info manuals and love these vintage classics.

tally_girl_2.jpg I don't suppose it would be so simple as setting the wheel inside the elnagraph to "A" to engage the automatic stitches? I've done it myself once or twice LOL.

What bobbin size for elna supermatic 722010 Can I purchase metal bobbins for this machine at a Joannes? or ? Is there a staner bobbin number or size to ask for?? thanks@ The Elna I have came with ONE...


Elna Supermatic 722010 is a very vintage elna and would take the metal 7 hole dished bobbin like this.

Don't try to use any other bobbin in it, and always load and wind with the holes on top.

You can still buy these; one supplier is sewingpartsonline, here is like to the item

Extra discs for an vintage Elna Supermatic plus pressor feet.


Try the usual eBay route, but also approach any Sewing Repair shop as they often acquire odd bits from old machines....We had 9 disks for a lady with an Elna SU only last week, all from a machine traded 2 years ago and really beyond resale.
