SOURCE: Foot control for PFAFF won't work

These machines need to be seen by a technician who can disassemble the motors and replace the carbon brushes. You should have them serviced at the same time since it doesn't take that much longer to do everything.

SOURCE: I purchased a used air

I have several Elna sewing machines, but not this model. Each has a way of immobilising the foot so that children can't use the machine. On my 1973 there is a wheel inside the main wheel on the right hand side, if this is slack, then tighten it. On the little Elnas there is a knob which you turn to disengage the foot mechanism - just have a little play with the knobs. If you move something and nothing happens, just move it back to the original position before you try something else!

No power going into the foot pedal, when i step on half bubble nothing happens


The foot controls with the air function tend to fail, usually because they develop a leak. You may be able to get a replacement from your dealer.

I have an old elna lotus sp sewing machine and need to reduce the speed on the foot control is this possible


The Lotus should have the integrated foot controller and power cord in one. Some of these had a switch on the foot controller which reduced the power to half speed. That's the only way to adjust the speed other than the foot on the pedal. The later models Air Electronic have a slide speed control on the front face of the machine which made life easier.

Electronic foot control on My Elna free arm model SU is not getting power to the machine from the electronic foot control. The light comes on, but the control will not provide power to the machine.


take the foot control in to a sewing machine repair shop and have it tested
earlier models were a simple resistance variation but later models are electronic control
it could be a simple broke connection in the control

Have inherited my mom's elna Stella tsp air electronic. The foot control became harder to press, then stopped working. Elna want ZAR858 for a new part! Can I repair it?


Im confused, Stella TSP air electronic has a round black and white air foot with a black air line to the side of the machine like this.

or the earlier Lotus TSP has a electric foot and cable which is made of older style plastics, these are harder to find now but Sewingpartsonline.com carry an aftermarket one like this

No, not cheap parts but beautiful machines that with TLC work so well.

Need new foot control for Elna 6000


Have you tried Elna themselves firstly? Start with www.elna.com, choose your country to go to the local website, then go to "Contact Us" page and either email or ring the office in your country.

Or you can puchase this foot control from www.sewingpartsonline.com,
it looks like it is a seperate item to the power supply and plugs into the machine so whether you are in a country with 110V or 240V power shouldn't matter.

Pedal on Elna air electronic gets stuck


can you please elaborate a bit further? do you mean the pneumatic foot control is not working? If so, check that the air line isn't sitting under your chair's leg, any pressure on this line will stop it working as it operates on air pressure into a bellows inside the machine. If you think that the foot control or the air line has a hole in it you will need to replace it, these parts are still available for sale from www.sewingpartsonline.com, just search using your Elna 2 digit model number to find it. All the Elna air electronics use the same foot control so there's no compatibility issues.

I need a foot control for the elna 800. Is it still available?


I don't know if a universal foot control, available at www.sewingpartsonline.com would work. You can call Elna at 1-800-700-elna and ask if they have one available or if not what would work. Good luck

I have an old elna super that I love. It recently started sewing on it's own without my pressing the foot pedal. Is the motor going or is it a cord/footpedal problem?


It is almost a given that it is a foot control problem. The original foot control and its parts are not available, but generic foot controls will work. Don't allow the machine to sit humming on low, it will damage the motor.

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.
