No, sorry.

If you're in the UK you may be able to source the part you need from here, here or here. If not in the UK then click here for the company website to find your local stiockist.

I trust that my reply will enable you to locate the power cord you require; please take a moment to rate my answer.

I have found out that it appears that lots of customers appreciate my efforts and help. So, I thought I would take some of my own personal time
to see if I can help you. Even though this Informational site may not have your exact model or brand, But this site will help you a lot. Here is the site link about everything you want to know about Sewing Machines and possibly yours, from repair to trouble shooting it.

Please if this helped you at all, if you can find the time and in your heart to rate my help and some kind words written would be appreciated for my free help, I would appreciate it. Like I said I just try to help, If anything this is good information for future problems. If you felt that my free help was a waist of time for you, I'm sorry. I do not get paid to help people on the site, I do it cause I like to help and maybe make a smile on someones face.

Here is also my direct link to my own pages of other areas of my expertise for other problems you might have in Automotive, Appliance, and Electronics. Drop In anytime for my help.

Thanks Mike

Elna 6005 - I need to move the tension dial to 9 to get an even stitch. I re-treaded the machine and bobbin and it is still the same. Any solutions?

it is common when threading a machine for the top thread to get behind the tension plates and not between them
this makes it bind up on the mount bolt and gives false tension settings
even threads also depend on the bottom thread tension which is adjustable by the tiny screw that holds the spring clip that you pass the thread under when you put the bobbin back in the case
try going google --type in-- workshop manual for elna 6005 --and see if there is a pdf version available,

Timing is out on Elna su62 and will not pick up bobbin thread

The lower pinion gear is likely broken or cracked. Try this test.
Unplug machine, turn hand wheel full rotation. The hook should also spin a full rotation. If it does not move or moves intermittently the gear needs replacement.

I have an Elna 6005 that has started skipping stitches and the bobbin raises up and hits the plate, What can I do to fix.

Check two things:

1. Look at the bobbin and see if the thread is wrapped around it like it should be or if it looks jumbled, criss crossed or snagged in some place. Best thing to do is try a different bobbin and see if it sews correctly.

2. Check the needle and make sure it isn't bent or in wrong. Try a different needle.

If i'm understanding what you mean by raising up and hitting the plate it sounds like the bobbin thread is caught somewhere or the bobbin case is not inserted correctly. Take it out and put it back in again and feel for it to go into the right place and listen for a slight "click" as it goes in.

My elna 6005 keeps on stopping ande I get the message stop for safety purposes. I have just had my machine serviced and I really don't know what to do.

Something is not quite right. Double check everything...loose needle, plug ins, threading, bobbin area for loose threads, etc.

Keep in mind that you've jostled the machine moving it from the service to your home. It could be as simple as the bobbin race being out of alignment. If nothing you do works... take it back and give the the person who serviced it the "look." and make him/her fix it.

Loose tension on bobbin thread

Using a scrap piece of material; try tightening the upper tension a bit at a time until the bobbin thread is smooth. Test stitch after each setting until you get the desired effect...happy stitching Gal.

Needle threader has your part # 734515009, it is kind of pricey at $12.99 but it is worth having the correct part. This company is wonderful for parts and very quick service. You will like them.
