    I have this machine. Although not all parts are compatible with Elna, you can still get Elna belts for it. I don't recall the size of the upper belt of the top of my head, but it was readily available when I last needed it. The lower belt is 9-7/8" -- I just replaced mine 2 days ago. George at sewingmachineparts is helpful, or your local machine repair shop should have the belts on hand if they repair Elna machines.

I have an Elnita 150, too. It takes the same belts as for Elna (although this isn't true of ALL parts). I don't recall the size of the upper drive belt, but the lower one -- which I replaced 2 days ago -- is 9-7/8". George at sewingmachineparts is really helpful, or your local sewing machine repair shop should have the belts on-hand if they service Elnas.

I think this was one of the "made under licence for Elna" machines, not a Swiss made model.

Hope this is of some help to you.

SOURCE: I have an Elnita 140 sewing machine and would like

I am 90% certain that any low shank foot will fit this machine. Does your machine info plate say "made in Japan" or "made for Elna" anywhere? Is it about 30 years old? I'm pretty sure this was a "made under licence for" Elna Tavaro and that the machine is front loading bobbin model with pretty standard generic low shank feet; may be clip on too.

If this aligns with your machine, you should be able to buy low shank feet such as these at Or if they are clip on, you can just buy the foot, not foot and ankle.

The Elnita name was also used on Swiss made machines such as the 17 ZZ and I think used again recently however so it can get confusing. You could ask Elna themselves; start at, then go to your country, then "contact us" page to find a phone number of email. I have found that contacting the manufacturer/distributor in your country is often best. Or look at the images of the feet on sewingpartsonline, see if they look like what you've got on the machine now and take a chance on buying one or asking them if it would fit.

I need a 1/4 inch presser foot with edge guide. My Elnita 150 was purchased in either 1991 or 1992. Help!!

If you know what shank your machine has, you should be able to find a generic 1/4" presser foot. You can probably even use a snap-on foot as long as you get the shank adapter for your machine.

Sewing machine Can we change the belt in an Elnita 120?

Yes. BUT... you run the risk of knocking it out of time. Better to have it serviced and the belt replaced at the same time.

Hello! I'm a beginner at sewing and recently inherited an Elnita 130 sewing machine. Does anyone know how I can find a manual for this? I have searched a number of websites selling sewing machine...

You can check this out. Doesn't list your model, but it is most likely similar to the 120 and 140. Usually, the only difference between one model and the next is one will have a few for stitches or added functions. The basic operation is probably the same:
