I guess i thought i could get some help with starting the dismantling. but of course, except for chit chat, if i don't pay, my affiliation with this site is useless. my machine is 36 years old. i found sewusa that had drawings, but only limited number. yes, when i go at it cold, i will post how i removed the old gear, so someone else can get this help. cheers

I'd suggest that you join the Yahoo group called Elna Heirlooms, their members are very helpful and share their knowledge and love of these Swiss made Elnas. Pretty simple, just go to www.yahoo.com, register as a user, then go to Groups and search for "Elna Heirlooms" and ask to be a member. YOu'll need to give the moderator some info on yourself and why you want to join. Once you are a member you should check out the files and past messages, there is bound to be a message thread on solving this problem.

Can you raise feed dogs on elna su


It may depend on your particular model, but the Elna SP manual indicates there is a darning and button plate which means the feed dogs do not raise or lower.
Page 36:
ELNA SP Manual Page 23

Here are some tutorial videos that may be helpful:
Elna SU 62C Basics

At about minute 34 of the video, he puts the plate cover over the feed dogs so it is doubtful that your machine is any different.

Why won't my Elna SU model 62c feed fabric?


thread looping on the underside is a symptom of no tension on the top thread so you need to look at the top threading path and the tension dial, is it set to 5? and is the thread pulled fully into the tension disc? Also always thread the top thread with the presser foot raised as this opens up the tension discs so the thread can bed in correctly. If you can see the feed dogs rising up and down above the needle plate during their cycle then they should be gripping and moving the fabric forward. Is there presser foot coming down firmly onto the fabric when you release the presser foot bar? This part does have a big spring inside which applies pressure downwards, maybe this is what the mechanic meant was broken. Was he a sewing machine technician? Maybe try to locate an old school Elna technician, start with www.elna.com and go to your country, then search for a local dealer.

The gear is still available. A special tool is needed to replace. This is not an easy job if you have never seen one done.

1967 Elna Star series Supermatic


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
