Can't get a manual for you but here's how to wind a bobbin.
Guide your thread from the spool holder to the bobbin thread tension device on the top left side of the machine.(That's the round assembly that is about 1/2 inch in diameter with a screw in the center of it.) Pull the thread in the front and wrap it to the back and continue towards the bobbin winder on the right side top. Wrap thread around the bobbin, place the bobbin on the spindle sticking up. Release the handwheel(either by pulling out on the center of the wheel or twisting on the center of the wheel). Press on the foot control. It should stop winding when it is full.
To thread the machine
all machines thread the same. TTN tension, take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way. Flat side to the back and it threads front to back

If you bend over the front of the machine, you will see a slider switch on the back of the machine, and there is a small "button" at the bottom right of the switch (your right). If you push this button down, you can slide the slider switch to your right and the feed dogs will go up.

Which is the stretch stitch on my elna club 500


Here's a copy of your owner's manual:

ELNA 500 ELECTRONIC Manual Page 16

Although it does not show a "stretch" stitch per se, there are several that can work. Machines without any stretch stitch can simply use a zig-zag.

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
