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 an Elna 7000.

You would have programeed your preferred length by first choosing a buttonhole code, either 1 for square type, 5 for a keyhole or 6 for stretch.

To obtain your buttonhole again, set up fabric under foot, just press the same buttonhole button again, then press the foot control down and the machine should sew out the whole thing in one go, then repeat the process for all the buttonholes on your garment.

I hope this assists you with your 7000, four thumbs up if so.

Hi I am wanting to do a 4cm buttonhole on my Elna Elina 40. The automatic button hole only goes up to 2.5 cm. How do I do a button hole as long as 4 cm please.


Just stitch the buttonhole without the automatic buttonholer. That's how we do it with machines that don't have the buttonhole function. Buttonholes can be done on any sewing machine that has zig-zag capability. A left/right needle position would be helpful, but if that is not available, just be sure to sink the needle into the fabric BEFORE changing the zig-zag width.

Directions for making a buttonhole with an Elna SU


A transcript from the Elna SU manual reads as follows, and the manual can be viewed on line at http://sewingonline.co.uk/instructions/elnasp/

First make a few trial runs with a scrap of material exactly as the buttonhole will be stitched, with the machine adjusted as you intend to use it.
1. Use the embroidery and buttonhole foot. It can be chnged without a screwdriver by using the fixation screw.- With the stitch width knob at "0", turn the selector to zigzag "1".
2. De-center the needle to the left.
3. Set the stitch width knob at 2, with the solid mark on top.
4. Set the stitch length dial between 1/2 and 1/4.
5. a) Mark the desired length on the material.
b) Sew the first side of the buttonhole. Stop with the needle in the material and the mark (right).
c) Raise the foot and pivot the material round the needle. Lower the foot and raise the needle.
6. a) Set the stitch width knob at 4.
b) Sew a few stitches. Raise the needle.
7. a) Set the stitch width knob at 2.
b) Sew the second side and stop just short of the length of the first. Raise the needle.
8. a) Set the stitch width knob at 4.
b) Finish off the buttonhole by sewing a few stitches. Raise the needle.
9. a) Set the stitch width knob at "0".
b) Sew a few stitches to fasten the threads, holding the material back by hand.
10. Open with the buttonhole knife, which you will find in the accessory box.

How to sew a button hole on an old elna lotus


Do you have the buttonhole slide foot attachment that came with the machine? this helps you get the length of the buttonhole correct and also helps to keep the fabric straight. Buttonholing on a Lotus is covered on page 16 and 17 of the manual,

My automatic buttonhole stitch is not working on my elna sewing machine ,even when the lever is pulled down


you should a buttonhole button that must be pushed on the machine
either before you pull the buttonhole lever down or after to let the
sewing machine know what function to use, my sewing machine
won't let me make a buttonhole unless I push the buttonhole button
or yes, like you said the buttonhole foot could be damaged.
