I'm not sure about your machine but I've used an Elna that had a leaver for stitch length and when you pushed the leaver up all the way it would activate reverse stitching.

Where is the back stitch button on a elna 6003

If you have the owner's manual, it is supposedly called a "Reverse Key."

Why doesn't my elna model 300375 work in reverse?

the reverse button or lever could be broken or stuck, it would be a good idea to have the machine checked to see why the reverse isn't working.

I have an Elna Elnita air electronic and cannot figure out how to backstitch. I have always owned Elna Su air electronics but this little machine I can't figure out the backstitch

Unless there is a specific button to do reverse stitching, you could try pressing the foot peddle 'backwards' .. in other words, press with your heel rather than your toe. Some foot peddles are configured this way.

Hi, I have an Elna Carina and the flywheel is

I can direct you to a service manual for your machine but it may be something that you need a trained Elna service technician to deal with.

Link is

I am more familiar with the SU air electronic where you just hold the outside of the flywheel and turn the inside knob to disengage and rengage the clutch - didn't realise the Carina had a button flywheel release until I looked in the service manual.

Anyway, you could try dismantling the flywheel following the exploded diagram in the service manual if you are technically minded.

Or just take it to a reputable serviceman, I'm a big fan to supporting these guys as their knowledge is invaluable.

Elna dealers my elna super is stuck in reverse. Nearest repair shop is 200 mi. They recently servised it. can a person with better than average mech skills fix it ?

I just had the same problem.
I had a look around inside the machine, without taking off too many covers. By taking off the bottom panel I was able to look up inside and see what the 'reverse' lever was doing . The lever appeared to be moving another part inside the machine, except it wasn't returning to its original position (so it was stuck in 'reverse'). I used a long stick to push it back, and sprayed some WD40 onto it and after that the lever was able to move the part back and forth, and hey presto the machine works forward and reverse again.
Hope this helps if anyone else has this problem

Where is the reverse button on elna 2005?

The reverse button is next to where you thread the cotton. as the thread goes down to the needle, there is a small cream tab approx 1.5cm long. This is pushed down when you want to reverse. It will only go down about 1.5cm then release.

Where can i find an operating manual for an Elna Diva

Look up a manual for the Elna 9000. They are available on eBay and from sewing machine part suppliers. I used to sell Elna's, and they are the same machine. The first version (9000) had black face detail and buttons, which didn't sell well, so they just changed the facade to white with gold writing and renamed it "Diva." It is one and the same.
