Check the brushes in the motor. My old Elna super did the same thing. We replaced the brushes and it has been working like a charm ever since. It's 40 years old and still going strong.

How do i fix a n elna su that will not stop after releasing the foot pedal


I'm guessing this is an Elna air electronic SU? If yes, then the problem is with the diagram inside the right side of the machine where your air control foot pedal tube feeds in. I havent' done this repair myself, I took mine to my favourite sewing machine technician. But if you are technically able, try joining the Yahoo Group called Elna Heirlooms, and then go through the threads there, there's been discussion on this repair before.

Why do the automatic stitches and cams on an elna su not work?


Remove thread from machine and open door to where you put cams in. Step on pedal and run at full speed. It the mechanism where the cams go spinning? It is likely that your elna graph gear is broke

My Elna su from 1975 runs now only at top speed even if you dont push the footcontrol Has always been very reliable and I dont whant to get rid of it.


If your foot control is not an air control but electric then the chances are the suppressor has blown in the control, open the control and take out the small suppressor, you can then use the machine you don't need that part

I have star series elna 62 Supermatic, free arm with blue top, auto buttonhole. It winds bobbin slowly only if started by hand turning fly wheel, but makes a clunky noise. Will not stitch or move to...


Sounds like a drive issue with your Star Series, I'd check out yellow pages and phone a few sewing machine guys until you find someone who knows the vintage Elnas and can take a look at it. Or you could join the Yahoo group Elna Heirlooms and ask some of the guys on there who know these machines well. They may give you enough info to at least take it apart and take a look inside yourself.

There are a few web sites selling parts, www. sewingpartsonline.com has parts for this model listed including a motor. http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/elna-star-62-sewing-machine-parts.aspx

This is a great machine, I have one too and love it. I bought mine 2nd hand in 1988 and it still sews beautifully, outlasting my Elna Air Electronic SU. Mine has never been to a serviceman while I've had it, I always keep it in the case and inside a cupboard, and give it a good clean and oil when I pull it out to use. Its straight stitch is beautiful to behold.

Elna supermatic...the light comes on ,,but nothing else works


Turn the machine on, press the foot control down and turn the handwheel backwards. If it sputters, the motor carbon brushes are worn to the springs and need replacing.

Next, while pressing on the foot control, try wiggling the wires around where it enters to machine and where it enters the foot control. There may be a short in the cord. If the short is at the machine, you need a new cord. If it is at the foot control, the cord can be pulled into the foot control, the shorted part cut off and the connection reattached.

If it still doesn't work, try removing the cord from the machine and placing an alligator clip test lead to two of the inlet prongs on plugging it into power. Which two prongs you ask? Try several combinations, (one will light up the lamp) CAREFUL: THE MACHINE MAY SUDDENLY TAKE OFF AT FULL SPEED, SO REMOVE THE BOBBIN, THE THREAD AND NEEDLE FIRST. if it runs, it is your foot control. If it doesn't run, it's likely the motor brushes or motor.
