Elna Carina accessories

I have an Elna Carina from the early 1980's that is still working like a champ. Trouble is, I don't know where to get authentic Elna parts for it. In particular I'd love to have a foot that measures 1/4 inch for quilting (the one I have is after-market and clips on but doesn't hold the fabric down well). Where can I get genuine Elna parts for my machine?

Try contacting Elna directly, or find your nearest agent thru their website, if in USA ....here

having this photo should help trace a part number if you can get onto an Elna service technician, if it were Janome, I could look up our references, so it should be straightforward.

SOURCE: stitches

Usually a walking foot is for straight forward stitching only.It keeps the many layers from shifting for you. The "hand-look" quilting takes a couple stitches forward then one back. If you look close, you will see about every other stitch is thicker and stands out more.

SOURCE: Is this machine a high or low shank?

High Shank Machines are all the Janome Embroidery models MC 8000, MC 9000, 10000, 10001, 11000, 200E, 300E, 350E....etc
If yours is not an embroidery machine, it has a LOW SHANK .....the higher shank allows for easier access for the embroidery hoop.

SOURCE: machine doesnt switch off keeps running slowly

Thanks for return email.
I took the machine to an Elna dealer who fixed the problem by by-passing the (small board) switch that returns the needle to the ready position after filling the bobbin. It is quite frustrating not having that facility after being so used to it.

Kind regards
Yolande

Elna carina manual


You may find this at www.diplodocs.com or www.scribed.com free, otherwise you will probably need to buy it from www.sewingpartsonline.com or www.sewing-machine-manuals.com , I think it came as 2 books, Instruction Manual and Sewing Guide.

How do I set timing on an Elna Carina 1980 model? I'm refering to the timing between the needle and the rotary hook. The main drive wheel powered by the belt has come loose from the lower horizontal drive...


there is a service manual to download at this website http://www.arizonaexpressionz.com/elna_service/carina_500_service_manual.pdf

but it is written for a trained technician and may assume a certain level of expertise of the reader.

Hope this is of assistance to you.

If you are in the USA you could also contact White Sewing Center, www.whitesewingcenter.com - this gentleman actually trains how to repair sewing machines, and sells many Elna parts, machines and services them too.

Elna carina how to remove light bulb


There is a small hole on the left side of the top of the machine. Using a thin rod such as the L shaped edge guide that came with the accessories, push down in the hole and the lamp socket (which is spring loaded) will go down to allow you to grasp the bulb. Replace it with a similar long bulb available at any sewing machine repair shop.

Elna Carina service


I just had the same question for servicing of my Elna Carina. I contacted customer support for Elna and received the following e-mail: "Elna machines can be serviced by most authorized Elna dealers. If you need to locate an authorized Elna dealer in your area, please visit our official website at: www.elnausa.com and click on “Dealer Locator” on the top right hand side of the page."

Elna Carine Electronic Sewing Machine


You should be able to buy a manual online but it may be a cd or image pdf file. Try www.sewingpartsonline.com or www.sewusa.com. If they don't have the Carina but have the Air Electronic SU, model 68 then this will be almost the same. Main difference is the Carina has the needle up/down button.
