Power range / watts for Elna 6005 sewing machine

Do you know what range of power the Elna 6005 sewing machine will support. It has a USA power plug. Will it work ok on Australian power 240v or will I need a transformer to convert the power to 110v USA power ?

There will be a sticker or engraved fine print next to the power socket or on the bottom of your Elna that will say what voltages it is compatible with. If it says 110v/220v you can use a plug adapter.Note well that the adapter doesn't change the voltage in anyway it just makes the plug fit. If it only says 110v which is most likely get an AC to AC adapter, **** Smith Electronics or Tandy will be able to help. If you're unsure don't take the risk it will take a second to destroy the electronics if you use the wrong voltage!

No you cannot, the transformer will work for a while and it will get very hot and cound catch fire. You should get a transformer at least 100 W to 120 W. It can be an auto transformer which is not so bulky as an isolating transformer, but be careful how you wire it up.

Also have look on the machine it self to see how many watts in consumes. The number on the pedal may be the handling capacity of the pedal control.

My Elna 6005 just stopped everything went blank no power no lights no nothing what could be wrong?

No, should not have a fuse. Just plug in the cord carfully into the machine again. Make sure the wall socket has power first.
Could be that the foot pedal is burned out if it has been used a lot. But that is not too likely.

My elna 6005 keeps on stopping ande I get the message stop for safety purposes. I have just had my machine serviced and I really don't know what to do.

Something is not quite right. Double check everything...loose needle, plug ins, threading, bobbin area for loose threads, etc.

Keep in mind that you've jostled the machine moving it from the service to your home. It could be as simple as the bobbin race being out of alignment. If nothing you do works... take it back and give the the person who serviced it the "look." and make him/her fix it.
