Question about Sewing Machines
After I have been sewing, if i leave the machine on and go elsewhere for awhile. The foot pedal doesn't seem to work. I can turn off the machine, turn it on and the lights will work and the needle will adjust but it won't run. If I leave it for a couple of hours, it will usually start though I may have to play with taking the foot pedal cord in and out a few times. Thanks.
It sounds like you may have a connection problem with the plug on the sewing machine and the foot pedal, it would be a good idea to have them checked.

You only need to replace the cord if it has been damaged. It will cost less if you just take the machine , cord and control to a local technician and have him just replace the foot control. Let him test it first. A generic foot control should cost less than $30.

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.
