Question about Elna Sewing Machines
The pressure foot on the Diva does not come down firmly to hold the fabric. It comes down very slowly . The machine stitches perfectly if I hold the pressure foot down. My husband thinks it could bee a worn spring. If this is the problem, could you please advise what sort of spring it is, and how do we replace it. Thank you, Kaye
Make sure your presser foot is in the lower position. Open the door on the left and it has 3 settings. You may have moved it up for sewing something thick, and forgotten to lower it again. Sometimes things are simple, though your problem could be mechanical.

You need to oil up by where the needle bar comes out of the top of the machine. Up on top there is a nut you tighten that goes around the needle bar this the way you adjust the pressure but the main problem with sewing machines is no one ever oils them and without oil it won't live God Bless Greg
