SOURCE: I have a janome 8050

The key to proper stitches is that tension on the bobbin must equal the tension on the upper thread spool as well. The bobbin has a tension screw that may have come loose or the thread is not properly in the tensioner. For example, the bobbin could be in backwards. Or the tension of the top could be too light and allowing the tension on the bottom to pull the thread down too much.
Open the bobbin tray and watch while you slowly rotate the hand control to see it make a stitch.
You will probably be able to figure out what is wrong.

SOURCE: needle stays stuck whilst motor runs. Elna sewing machine

Its a lovely swiss made machine, this is an electronic motor so the needle pressure should remain constant no matter what speed you sew at. The needle staying down and the squealing sounds more like drive issues inside or possibly gunk buildup.

If it was my machine, I would take it to a qualified Elna technician and ask for him to look at it. These machines are small and well made so well worth spending the money to give it a service and get it back to 1000% IMHO.

My elna 7000 sewing machine speed all of a sudden is very slow, does not work in reverse, or does not want to make any stiches? What can be wrong?


Looks like this is a mechanical machine. If so, bet it needs a good cleaning and oiling. The following may be helpful:

It was working now it seems to be frozen the needle part wont move

Definitely get some good quality sewing machine oil. Sounds like the machine has basically seized, including the stitch selectors.

Elna 6200 stuck in bobbin mode but sticking


Is the bobbin winder spindle on top of machine pushed over to the right in winding position? Move it back to left to change back to sewing mode.

My sewing machine will not stich. i have tryed everything i can find on this problem but nothings working


Make sure nothing has either gotten stuck/caught/jammed somewhere inside it. Insure that the thread stays attached to the needle. Or the material you are trying to sew/stitch may be too thick.

I have a necchi 4575 and when I sew a straight stitch it will sew just fine and then for a few stictches it wil act as if its out of thread but then it will pick uop and sew normal for a few more stiches...


Sounds as though either the hook is out of time to the needle, or you have a bent needle. There are videos on Youtube that deal with sewing machine timing. Try a new needle, and make sure it is installed and seated correctly

Cant make the auto threader work on an elna 2007


Do you mean the auto needle threader?

Mine won't work on very small needle sizes so I resort to the old manual needle threader for these. Ditto for twin needles.

Otherwise its a case of pulling the auto threader down so the hook swings into the needle eye, then pulling the thread over the face of the needle and catching it into the hook, then release the threader so it pulls back through the needle eye, taking the thread with it.

The only other thing that springs to mind is "is the needle at the top position in its stich cycle so that the threader lines up with the needle eye?

hope these ideas help a little.
