Question about Sewing Machines
Machine has stopped working completely. Any advise for cleaning and trying to figure out what is wrong and how to get it going again
I have an elna model 62C supermatic purchased in 1972. on yours, do you mean the motor won't run at all? or does the electronic foot not cause a response to sew? after 30 years, in 2002, my electronic foot quit working. i opted to purchase the internal electronic module, and replaced it into the original housing (did it myself). the two weak spots in an otherwise amazing machine are the two plastic gears--rotary hook gear which works your bobbin, and the camshaft stack gear which works cams/zigzag/etc. i have replaced both in the last 5 years (again, did it with my husband's help). i'd say the Elna is pretty awesome sewing machine with the couple of million hours i've used it (no exaggeration!) and the minimum of repairs it has needed. an excellent source of parts is www.whitesewingcenter.com. parts are reasonable, and authentic. Raymond White is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. good luck. jeannie
