SOURCE: I have star series elna
I have the flatbed version of your machine. It was acting the same way. There is a rubber drive gear in the machine that becomes smoothed out over the years from wear. When it is smooth, it loses friction and that is why you have to move the hand wheel manually. There is not enough friction on the gear for it to drive the operation of the machine by the motor. I had to get down into the machine and rub the smooth surface until it was not so slick and created some friction with the parts it comes in contact with. A factory-trained elna repairman suggested this fix instead of buying the replacement part because the replacement part is not as good as the swiss made original part. My machine runs well now.
