Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Hi i have a 1990s Elna Club computer (500). we have need of a parts list for this specific machine. i have ordered 2 lists online that were not the right ones. specifically, we need a replacement nut/bolt (it is square, holds the plate on top of the bobbin assembly on) i also need a couple of parts that hold the thread pin on. i ordered new ones from a dealer, but the pins slide completely through them. My husband thinks there is a clip for the bottom that is missing.

Is your top thread tension on 1? this sounds way too loose, should be 4 or 5.
This is a horizontal top loading bobbin machine isn't it like the Janomes?

Do you have a manual for it? It sounds to me like the top thread is too loose and as it is pulled down and around the rotary hook there is no tension on it to pull it back up through the fabric and form a stitch which is then causing it to jam. Then once youve gots bits of thread in there, its just jamming and jamming. Cleaning out the bobbin holder as you described is good, you may need to do it again and ensure all bits of thread are out of it.

I think you need to revist all the threading up and ensure that the top thread is under tension, try number 5. Also check that bobbin is correctly wound nice and smoothly, then loaded into the bobbin holder correctly so that the thread is coming off the bobbin spool in the right direction, ie thread needs to come off the bobbin, then reverse direction in a "v" shape, usually in the direction of the back of the free arm. And that the thread has been clicked into the tension spring fully, put the thread into the slot of the tension device and press down on it with your finger tip until you hear it click into tension.

Also double check the take up lever, if the thread has slipped out of this, it will jam up for sure.

If you don't have any manual for this then try, there is good troubleshooting tips and threading diagrams for lots of makes and models.

Hope this helps you, persever, its most likely threading/tension issues and can be overcome with the right settings.

Which is the stretch stitch on my elna club 500

Here's a copy of your owner's manual:

ELNA 500 ELECTRONIC Manual Page 16

Although it does not show a "stretch" stitch per se, there are several that can work. Machines without any stretch stitch can simply use a zig-zag.

Hi! One of my favorite resources for parts is Guy at You'll need to email or call him to let him know what you need.

I also found parts for Elna 5000s at If you don't see what you need on their list, you can email them and ask about it.

You can also talk to Guy or the folks at sewingpartsonline about what would be involved with doing it yourself. Shouldn't be too hard.

Let me know if this works, ok?

Happy Sewing!

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

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.
