Question about Elna 2007 Mechanical Sewing Machine

2 Answers

Elna 2002 -

I have just been given a Elna 2002 and have downloaded the manual which mostly refers to the 2004 and 2006. I do not understand how the pattern selection works. The dial shows for example 4 and 9 (two different patterns) but I do not know how to get each one to work and the dial is just set on 4 and 9. Would appreciate your help.

Turn the stitch pattern selector to the stitch pattern that you want to use, lets say number 4, the elastic zig-zag. Set the stitch length on the rotary control to the length you need and also set the width on the slider. Sew. All basic stitches where the fabric only moves forwards (1 to 5) are selected and controlled in this way.

If you want the criss-cross stitch 9, select number 9 - the same dial setting as stitch 4 but now turn the stitch length selector to the "S" position. The basic stitch length is preset but you can still set the stitch width as usual.

For all stitches that use the "S" position (6 to 10), the feed dogs have to move the fabric both forwards and backwards to create the desired pattern. The precise balance of forwards to backwards movement can be adjusted a little buy turning the control knob a little in the "+" or "-" directions on either side of the "S". This is to balance the stitches so that when creating these patterns with the thread, the needle can be correctly placed to give the correctly shaped stitch (or for decorative effect too, I suppose).

The question was regarding the Elna 2002 not 2007 and it wasn't a problem. I just do not understand how the pattern selection works. Thank you.

Having thread breakage probelm and also can't track down the correct bobbin to use on the Elna 2005

have you got the manual for this machine? You can download one from here:

It is a front loading bobbin and removabel bobbin case so I think the bobbin is a plastic "Class 15" - like this

Thread breaking could be caused several factors such as the thread actually being old and brittle, the needle or needle plate having burrs and catching the thread, incorrect threading, bobbin in bobbin case the wrong way, or top tension discs playing up/too tight or thread catching somewhere in the threading path.

I'd suggest that you trouble shoot this and refer to the manual for cleaning instructions. If you can access them clean between the tension discs (turn tension down to zero and "floss" between the by running the selvage edge of a piece of clean cotton scrap through the discs to remove any lint/dye buildup). Wind a fresh bobbin and rethread referring to the manual to ensure the bobbin is turning the right way. New needle and rethread top thread refering to threading diagram. Tension on 5 and test sew again.

If you are still having problems, then the machine may benefit from a service by your local Elna dealer, a good service and clean at least every 2 years is recommended.

How to thread an Elna 2005

Hi. I've searched a number of my sources for a manual for your machine, but the closest I could find is for the 2002-2004-2006 models at

Threading should be similar enough between your machine and the ones covered in this manual that you can see what's going wrong.

Hope this helps!
