Consult your owner's manual under maintenance to learn how to clean and oil (if applicable). Consult the troubleshooting section for excessive noise.

Check out this machine on YouTube:

It does seem noisier than some other machines.

Hi Colin, I'm Julie. The noise you're experiencing could be caused by one of the following
"1) Dust/Lint in the feed dog_________Clean machine
2) Lint in the hook_________________Clean machine
3) Thread caught in the hook________Disassemble hook and clean"

Hope this helps you. Regards, Julie :)

If you bend over the front of the machine, you will see a slider switch on the back of the machine, and there is a small "button" at the bottom right of the switch (your right). If you push this button down, you can slide the slider switch to your right and the feed dogs will go up.

SOURCE: should I oil my Elna 3005 sewing machine?

Many of the new models do not require oiling.

Check the maintenace section of the manual for cleaning the shuttle area. Sometimes lint can build up and cause the machine to get noisy.

If it has been over a year since the machine was serviced, it may be time for a proffesional tune-up.

SOURCE: i have for gotten how

YOu can down load a manual from here http://www.arizonaexpressionz.com/elna_instruction_manuals/Elna7000.pdf

Just remember to click the bobbin thread into the tension device correctly and hold the two threads behind the pressure foot when you start each seam - Elna top loading bobbins give great stitch quality but you just need to keep stray threads out or they'll jam up.

Also, you must use the Elna plastic bobbin that the manual specifies for this machine - the 5000, 7000 and 9000 were Elna Tavaro Switzerland's first foray into computerised machines and first released in 1986.

Also, please check the manual when you go to buy twin needles, there are two types now as computerised machines usually need the twin needles offset from the shaft position. They have red or black plastic block between the shaft and the twin needles - I think you need the red ones but just double check the manual to make sure. And you can't do all the wide stitches with a twin needle as it will strike the foot.

Hope this helps a little.

I think you will need to contact an Elna Dealer to buy these; or contact "relics" on line, they sell the Swiss Elna manuals. Their site is
http://www.tias.com/stores/relics/ and they have the service manual for the 7000 for sale for $23.

Not sure of the particular bobbin winding problem you are experiencing. However, frequently the bobbin winder "tire" becomes worn and needs to be replaced.

Elna sewing machine 7000 geting bobin won't go through the feed dog


sorry, not sure I understand your problem. can you elaborate?

Have you got the correct Elna bobbin for your machine? check your manual, it should have an image of the bobbin, the 7000 was one of the last Swiss made Elnas and although a computerised machine, it still tool the Elna metal bobbin with 7 holes on one side only. If you are using another bobbin in the shuttle, it may not function correctly.

if you can add some more info I will try to help you further.
