Question about Elna Sewing Machines
Sounds like a dry bushing, you don't say the model but the only solution is to get into that area and oil it.

This might sound too simple but it might need to be thoroughly oiled. I just got one of these machines from a friend -- it had the identical problem: I couldn't turn the handwheel. The motor was working but the machine would not function. I blasted it with WD40 and then thoroughly oiled it with sewing machine oil. Within a half hour it was stitching just fine. If you use WD40 to free it up, be sure to thoroughly oil it with sewing machine oil immediately after because otherwise the lacquer in the WD40 will eventually gum it up again. Hope this helps.
