Depending on the make, you might still be able to obtain a foot pedal. It is old, but there are always a good chance.

I have a Necchi model 537FA. When u step on petal, it won't move. Does this machine have 2 BELTS? I only see one. I have oiled before running.


If you don't have any movement or hear the machine attempting to sew, you may have a burnt out pedal.
You should hear a slight hum when pressing on the pedal. If you don't hear a hum, the pedal is probably dead.
These can usually be ordered from the merchant who sold you the machine.

Needle seems to be hitting on something. Needle not bent and is inserted properly. It's sewing ok, just a clicking noise when needle is down. Old machine Elna Diva. About 25-30 years old.


Try installing a brand-new needle and make sure it is inserted all the way up into the needlebar. It if continues to hit, the machine quite possibly is out of time.

Hello. My 30 year old Elna electronic SU doesn't stop after I release the air pedal, from time to time. I have to tap two or three times on the pedal or simply turn off the machine to make it stop. Then,...


Sounds like the air electronic bellows sensor bit inside the machine is faulting, it can be repaired if you can find an old school Elna technician. Mine would do this too, and I did the same as you, worth putting up with as I love my AE SU machine.
if you are technical yourself and you do want to see if you can repair it, I would suggest joining the Yahoo Group called Elna Heirlooms, the members are very good at sharing knowledge on repairing the Swiss made Elna machines and I'm sure Ive read a thread on this fault.

If you machine is truly old (over 20-30 years) then you probably have a broken gear and on the elnas the part can be hard to find and if found, expensive to repair.
