Elna 9000 foot pedal

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.

    I am wondering if it is possible to take the foot pedal apart and check the wire connections easily

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.

SOURCE: foot pedal assembly for White sewing machine

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.

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 air elecntronic SU, which is thirty years old, doesn't always stop sewing when I take my foot off the air pedal. The machine keeps running until I tap a number of times on the pedal or turn the machine...


This will be the bellows inside the side panel of the machine where your foot pedal air line feeds into rather than the foot pedal. Really short of cutting or sitting on the air line with your chair, not much goes wrong there. It,should be repairable if you can locate a Swiss Elna trained/experienced techician.

My 9000, on regular sewing, is My 9000, on regular sewing, is "jumping" ahead as I sew....kinda like the foot pedal is stuck. Anyone every have this and if so, is it something I can fix or do I need t


it's definitely not suppose to be jumping ahead.
have you checked the foot your using on the machine to make sure it's on correctly?
you might also check the feed dogs to see if there in the up position, in the needle plate.
if nothing I suggests works then I agree to take it to a janome dealer & let them sew on it & see what it does with them

Can a genic foot pedal be used on an Elna Super?


Take a look at the side plate on your Elna and look for a two digit code, this is the model number.

I'm assuming that you are in the USA on 110 Voltage. If so visit this website,
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/elna-sewing-machine-parts-model-list.aspx and choose your model. They sell replacement foot pedals, just check the profile of the plug that goes into your machine.

The other option is contact the Elna guru, www.whitesewingcenter.com, he stocks a wide range of swiss Elna parts and may have the original foot control second hand.

If you are on 240 voltage then you'll need to source it from a country that has the same voltage like UK, Australia or NZ.

Lastly, you may wish to join the Yahoo group called "ELna Heirlooms" this user group of Elna owners is really helpful and shares lots of their love and knowledge for these beautifully made Swiss machines. Many of them have even earlier models than yours such as the Green Grasshopper, the first Elna machine.

Elna 9000 presser foot


This is a cleaning issue. There is gummy residue holding your presser foot bar which needs to be cleaned out. Unfortunately, you need to split the case on your machine to access it for cleaning and this is best done by a qualified technician. Let's face it, it's probably been a long time since the machine was serviced anyway and they do work better with regular servicing.

My elna 9000 says something like bRe and will not sew. How can I fix this?


I am not sure which machine you are using, but I have an Elna 9000. The only code I have ever seen come up on the screen is "btr" which signifies that the batteires for the electronic memory are running low. My machine will continue to sew, but this code comes up every time I turn the machine on - then the machine sets itself up normally and will sew fine. Plus, changing the batteries cancels all the memorized information on my machine.

I am not sure if this is the same code you are getting. My Elna 9000 manual does not list any other codes for the machine.

Have you taken your machine to a service dealer to have them check it out?
Best of luck. I know it is frustrating when you are in the middle of a project and have to stop to have your machine serviced.

Elna 9000 sews automatically


Most likely this is a problem in the foot control and it will need to be replaced or repaired.
