Question about Elna Sewing Machines
I need to know about the cartridges. When I bought the machine back in the early 90's, I was told that one cartridge should only go in one particular slot. Could you let me know which one and which slot. thanks

Switch power off first. On the top left hand side of the machine towards the front is a small hole. Insert small screwdriver in hole and push down. The light bulb will appear underneath just to the left of the presser foot. Whilst holding down the screwdriver firmly, turn bulb anti-clockwise pushing slightly upwards at the same time. Bulb should dislodge.

Make sure your presser foot is in the lower position. Open the door on the left and it has 3 settings. You may have moved it up for sewing something thick, and forgotten to lower it again. Sometimes things are simple, though your problem could be mechanical.

a operation manual will not so how to time the machine, what your
talking about is a service manual and elna does not sell them,,
only their sewing machine technicans have them, the machine
would have to be taken to a sewing machine repair shop for
timing or any other adjustments.
