Question about Elna 1010

1 Answer

I have an older Elna sewing machine, 115V, 1 amp and can't find a model type on it. But I need a users manual. Where do I get one?

I would like to get a users manual for this machine because I would like to know how to thread it and put a bobbin in it so I can use it.

Unfortunately, I think you'll need to figure out the model type somehow. I'd try a google image search for Elna sewing machines and try to find one that matches yours. Hopefully that image will have the model. That's what I had to do with my Husqvarna. Several of these machines at the link have images if you click on each one. Good luck.

SOURCE: Elna Primula 410 Bobbin Winding Question

Wind the Bobbin
For the usual jobs, it is the best to use a medium sized thread.
2. Disengage the flywheel by unscrewing the coupling knob as far as it will go.

3. Place the bobbin on the bobbin winder, and push the bobbin winder to the right.

4. Pull out one of the spool pins and place the spool of thread on it.

5. Pass the thread through the bobbin winder tension discs, as indicated.

6. Wind the end of the thread around the bobbin by hand, in the direction indicated.

7. Wind the bobbin, at a medium speed by pressing lightly with a finger on the spool so as to stretch the thread better and thus fill the bobbin to a maximum. The full bobbin stops automatically.

8. Re-engage the flywheel by tightening the coupling knob.

9. Cut the thread and remove the bobbin from the bobbin winder by pushing the latter to the left.

SOURCE: My elna sewing machine bobbin

If the fly wheel is going around then the clutch isn't disengaged to wind the bobbin, you need to pull out the flywheel on your model to disengage the clutch for bobbin winding.

tally_girl_59.jpg
Take thread from thread spool across to bobbin winder thread guide, then back to bobbin and thread the tail through the hole on top of the bobbin. Place bobbin onto spindle on top of machine and then push it against the stop to engage the bobbin winding motor. HOld the thread tail up and start winding slowly until the bobbin core has been covered including the starting point. Stop and trim off the thread tail with scissors. COntinue winding bobbin and give the thread a nudge if needed to wind evening top middle and bottom of the bobbin. A good smooth wind is important. Also don't wind at full speed and keep an eye on the thread reel that the thread is coming off, you don't want it bouncing around as this will **** the thread and stretch then relax it affecting your bobbin wind.

Obviously if you know this and the bobbin winding mechanisim is just not working, then it will need a service/replacement by an Elna repair person.

SOURCE: I have an Elna Lotus sewing machine. The needle

Most frequently the needle is just in backwards or threaded from wrong side, or using the wrong needle- check it over.... The presser foot must be released to press on fabric else the tension adjuster will be set to zero tension and could cause issue. Expect simple stuff else timing was knocked out of adjustment (from striking something, etc)
Take two adjustments and call me in the morning... for real, get back to me if it isnt anything basic I will try to describe timing procedure

SOURCE: I inherited my mother's Elna Lotus SP sewing

Hi Jeanne, you might want to check out my tip on early Swiss Elnas,

http://www.fixya.com/support/r10602655-acquired_early_swiss_elna_sewing

it should help you get the Lotus going. Lovely machine. If you are in the USA you may also want to contact White Sewing Center as he may have this manual available for sale or a copy of it. www.whitesewingcenter.com.

Remember to use the Elna 7 hole dished metal bobbins, there are 7 holes on the top, and looks like this11_7_2011_6_23_57_am.jpg

Always wind it and insert it into the machine this way. Don't use any other bobbin. Standard needles 130/705H, flat shank to the back.

Check out my other tip on bobbin winding too, it is important to keep tension onto the thread spool that you are winding thread off as the machine doesn't tension the thread for you. So you need to apply pressure to the top of the thread spool as you wind off, use the curved handle of your scissors on the top of the spool.

Feel free to connect to me and ask if you have any other questions, I have a Lotus TSP at home and its almost identical to the SP. Happy stitching.

What type of grease do I use on my elna 305 sewing machine.


NO grease!!! Best option is to pick up sewing machine oil sold by Elna--make sure it is the oil recommended for your model. For a computerized machine, apply only as directed in the owner's manual. Computerized machines usually take a clear, thin oil whereas mechanical machines usually take a thicker, lemon-colored oil. To keep your machine purring, AVOID old or inexpensive sewing machine oil. If it is an older mechanical machine, a drop or two can be applied every place where metal rubs against metal--do NOT oil nylon gears, belts, etc.

I am trying to do a straight stretch stitch with my elna jubile sewing machine... How can I do this? Where can I find an instruction manual for this machine?


This isn't possible. There needs to be slack in the thread in the direction of the stretch in order to achieve this and there is none to speak of in a straight stitch.

The best you can do is to use one of the zig-zag types, depending on what you need to sew.

For manuals, look here: http://sewingonline.co.uk/elna-manuals.html
and here: http://www.whitesewingcenter.com/manuals.php#elna
and here: Elna Sewing Machine Instruction and Service Manuals
and here: Elna Instruction Manuals

The last link may be your best bet (scroll down the list) and whitesewingcentre.com is very also good but you'll need to state the exact machine type - there are more than one Elna Jubilee models.

Where can I download a free user manual for an Elnita 250 sewing machine?


Looked in several of the websites and can't find this one free but it is purchasable at
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-elna-250.aspx

I think this was one of the "made under licence for Elna" machines, not a Swiss made model.

Hope this is of some help to you.
