First thing to check would be the foot control--make sure it is plugged in securely. If not that, most likely something internal to the machine itself.

Electronic foot control on My Elna free arm model SU is not getting power to the machine from the electronic foot control. The light comes on, but the control will not provide power to the machine.


take the foot control in to a sewing machine repair shop and have it tested
earlier models were a simple resistance variation but later models are electronic control
it could be a simple broke connection in the control

How do I fix my 1975 Elna SU which is sewing at full speed even though my foot is off the foot control. Had to remove power cord to stop it !


Your foot control is needing to be either repaired or replaced. Here is a good web site for replacements:

Can a genic foot pedal be used on an Elna Super?


Take a look at the side plate on your Elna and look for a two digit code, this is the model number.

I'm assuming that you are in the USA on 110 Voltage. If so visit this website,
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/elna-sewing-machine-parts-model-list.aspx and choose your model. They sell replacement foot pedals, just check the profile of the plug that goes into your machine.

The other option is contact the Elna guru, www.whitesewingcenter.com, he stocks a wide range of swiss Elna parts and may have the original foot control second hand.

If you are on 240 voltage then you'll need to source it from a country that has the same voltage like UK, Australia or NZ.

Lastly, you may wish to join the Yahoo group called "ELna Heirlooms" this user group of Elna owners is really helpful and shares lots of their love and knowledge for these beautifully made Swiss machines. Many of them have even earlier models than yours such as the Green Grasshopper, the first Elna machine.

I have an old elna super that I love. It recently started sewing on it's own without my pressing the foot pedal. Is the motor going or is it a cord/footpedal problem?


It is almost a given that it is a foot control problem. The original foot control and its parts are not available, but generic foot controls will work. Don't allow the machine to sit humming on low, it will damage the motor.

Elna supermatic...the light comes on ,,but nothing else works


Turn the machine on, press the foot control down and turn the handwheel backwards. If it sputters, the motor carbon brushes are worn to the springs and need replacing.

Next, while pressing on the foot control, try wiggling the wires around where it enters to machine and where it enters the foot control. There may be a short in the cord. If the short is at the machine, you need a new cord. If it is at the foot control, the cord can be pulled into the foot control, the shorted part cut off and the connection reattached.

If it still doesn't work, try removing the cord from the machine and placing an alligator clip test lead to two of the inlet prongs on plugging it into power. Which two prongs you ask? Try several combinations, (one will light up the lamp) CAREFUL: THE MACHINE MAY SUDDENLY TAKE OFF AT FULL SPEED, SO REMOVE THE BOBBIN, THE THREAD AND NEEDLE FIRST. if it runs, it is your foot control. If it doesn't run, it's likely the motor brushes or motor.
