Elna 704 dex skipps stitches in cover hem.


The timing could be off. First make sure you are using EL needles. This machine is set up for these needles only.

I have the Elna 6600 series Quilters Dream . I broke a needle because I had the incorrect foot on. When it "hit" the "Turn off for Safety Purposes" message came on.... then E2 . I...


Does your manual have a troble shooting section at the back and if so, what does it indicate for the E2 message?

Have you replaced the foot with the correct one and gone back to a straight stitch setting?

I'd turn it off, remove the needle plate and bobbin, clean everything out, check that there isn't a broken bit of needle anywhere, then reset everything up, turn it back on and try again with the standard foot.

Needle hits the white plastic where the bobbin case sits.


It may be as simple as you didnt get the needle pushed all the way up in the needle bar. Get new package of needles and try a new needle and make *sure* it goes up as far as you can push it. the reason I suggest a new pkg of needles is if one is bad in the pkg, they are probably all bad. If that doesnt fix it then the needle bar timing/height is off and need to be repaired/adjusted by a tech.

Hi, I broke a needle on my Elna 704 Dex (whoops,) and while my looper seems fine, I have been struggling with the tension ever since. The stitch will only balance if the differential is tightened further...


You may find that you need to re-thread the entire machine.

Raise the presser foot and set the tensions to zero.

Refer to the manual for threading order.

Zig zag won't work


Make sure stitch width slider is not set to zero. If not then you either have a bind in the needle bar pivot or an electrical problem (bad stepper motor or bad circuit board).
I can't remember if this machine has a twin needle lock out, if so turn it off.
Good Luck!
