Elna Supermatic type 62C D155494

My foot control of my Elna Supeermatic is broken. The back of the foot control has a type number 448 300-10 inprinted but the machine itself has a different one ( type 62C D155494). I have un-screwed the back of the control and found a board with very fine wires wound around and around. Several areas are broken. I believe that this courses my machine to play dead!??? What can I do?

There may be threads jammed up in the bobbin holder area causing the jam. But removing the inner bobbin holder is a bit tricky if you haven't done it before. There are two little screws holding the silver inner down onto a black ceramic piece (inner guard ring), and you need to get these lined up the right way to get the bobbin holder back into position afterwards.

I would suggest that you join the Yahoo group Elna Heirlooms, then check out the files and photos loaded up by other members who work on their Elnas.

You shouldn't need to remove the feed dogs, just give them a clean with a little brush. But internally the machine may need a good clean and lube and without a service manual or good guide this can be challenging.

If you go this link http://www.arizonaexpressionz.com/elna_service_manuals.html you can down load the manual for this machine, the Star Series SU. Go to page 7 of the first part to see about removing the bobbin holder and inner guard ring.

It is a case of lining up the cut out of the black plate to the front, then putting the bobbin holder on top with the little arms facing front also, then replacing the two screws.

I'd suggest you take photos with a digital camera before you start to help you get it back in the right way.

I hope this helps you with the Supermatic, did you get the discs and accessories with it too? lovely Swiss quality machine with great stitching so if you can't get it unjammed, you may wish to find an experienced Elna Technician to take a look.

White Sewing Center stock lots of parts for these machines too, www.whitesewingcenter.com

Instruction book


Nice vintage machine, you can buy a copy of the instruction manual here

or try ebay, some vendors sell manual copies on CD.

You may like to join the Yahoo group called Elna Heirlooms too, lots of owners of these Swiss made machines there who share knowledge there.

1967 Elna Star series Supermatic


i have an elna model 62C supermatic purchased in 1972. on yours, do you mean the motor won't run at all? or does the electronic foot not cause a response to sew? after 30 years, in 2002, my electronic foot quit working. i opted to purchase the internal electronic module, and replaced it into the original housing (did it myself). the two weak spots in an otherwise amazing machine are the two plastic gears--rotary hook gear which works your bobbin, and the camshaft stack gear which works cams/zigzag/etc. i have replaced both in the last 5 years (again, did it with my husband's help). i'd say the Elna is pretty awesome sewing machine with the couple of million hours i've used it (no exaggeration!) and the minimum of repairs it has needed. an excellent source of parts is www.whitesewingcenter.com. parts are reasonable, and authentic. Raymond White is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. good luck. jeannie
