Check the needle to be sure it is not bent.

If this is not the problem, you will need to choose another foot to use until the machine can be repaired by a professional.

SOURCE: I cant get the machine to sew a buttonhole.

I am not familiar with your machine, but some buttonhole attachments require a lever be lowered and inserted into a tab.

Review your manual to see if a step was overlooked.

have you checked to make sure the foot pedal is connected correctly to the machine?
if the foot pedal is connected correctly, then the machine needs to be checked to see why it's not responding

How do cables for foot control go under foot and under cap


Most cables actually go through a cable hole in the foot control. If you are trying to replace the cable, you will need to take the foot control apart to attach the cable inside. Be very careful! Most foot controls are made of plastic and can be easily broken. Search the internet to for instructions for repairing your machine's foot control.

My straight stitch is not perfectly straight, what can I do?


1. Put a piece of paper on the sewing machine w/o thread. Sew for three inches.
2. Notice the needle holes are straight with the feed dogs. The pressure foot is not in line with the holes.
3. With the pressure foot down loosen the pressure foot pressure to it's lowest amount.
4. There is a screw on the arm that needs to be loosened. Afterwards, adjust the arm until the foot is parallel with the feed dogs. Tighten screw.
5. Try sewing again on the piece of paper to check for accuracy on being straight.
6. One other check is to insure the feed dogs have even wear.

ELNA CARINA FOOD PEDAL NOT WORKING


Elna Carina has an air electronic foot controller, so you need to firstly check the air line coming from the round air pedal has no holes, is not crimped or squashed under the chair leg. Hold the plug end against your hand or cheek, squeeze the round bulb and see if you can feel a puff of air coming from it. If no, then check the air control black membrane for a hole, ditto the air line hose. You can still buy parts from sewingpartsonline.com for these Elna Carina Electronic 66 Parts . If the line and foot pedal are sound, then the problem lies on the internal actuator which is inside the right side panel of the machine. You can remove this panel by undoing two screws on the side (disconnect from power first!)
The panel will remain connected to the machine body by some cables, you may be able to check out the actuator and see if it is faulty. If its just a tiny hole in it, it might be repairable with a drop of superglue. For parts/service in the USA, Whites Sewing Center is the Swiss Elna specialist, and they may have spare parts in stock.

Have inherited my mom's elna Stella tsp air electronic. The foot control became harder to press, then stopped working. Elna want ZAR858 for a new part! Can I repair it?


Im confused, Stella TSP air electronic has a round black and white air foot with a black air line to the side of the machine like this.

or the earlier Lotus TSP has a electric foot and cable which is made of older style plastics, these are harder to find now but Sewingpartsonline.com carry an aftermarket one like this

No, not cheap parts but beautiful machines that with TLC work so well.

Foot pedal doesn't work


well if the foot pedal isn't working, you can either replace it with a new one or take the machine to a sewing machine repair shop & let them check the foot pedal & see if it's fixable

Pedal on Elna air electronic gets stuck


can you please elaborate a bit further? do you mean the pneumatic foot control is not working? If so, check that the air line isn't sitting under your chair's leg, any pressure on this line will stop it working as it operates on air pressure into a bellows inside the machine. If you think that the foot control or the air line has a hole in it you will need to replace it, these parts are still available for sale from www.sewingpartsonline.com, just search using your Elna 2 digit model number to find it. All the Elna air electronics use the same foot control so there's no compatibility issues.

My sewing machine goes by it self when I unplug the foot peddle it stops


What make and model machine is this please?

If its an Elna Air electronic with the pneumatic foot control then check that the air hose line isn't squished under your chair leg.

If its an electric foot control for another sort of machine, then I'd guess that something has gone inside the foot control.

You may well find a replacement one on www.sewingpartsonline.com or www.sewingparts.co.uk

Runs full speed without pushing the pedal!!!


  1. it sounds like the filter capacitor has failed. the capacitor is usually located inside the foot control but may be inside the machine itself.
try taking the foot control apart (dis-connect from power first). you should see a component rectangular in shape connected to the wires in the foot control. dis-connect this component (it will not adversely affect the running of your machine) and then re-assemble the foot control and test. if this did not fix the problem see a tech.

The foot control is not working


well particular on electrical problem foot control is a switch of motor that deliver speed varies on how you press the foot pedal it consist of circular thick plate carbon the old model and the new one electronically control of power ic,It depend on how this pedal was contro.Anyway besure the power is off or unplug the machine; this control was been connected in series connection to the motor which you can test if your foot pedal control is defective. Disconnect the line wire holding foot pedal from the terminal inside motor assembly.If your not qualified electrician don.t do this.Connect the two terminal wire that inside the machine where the motor mounted.This connection is supplying your motor in full speed,Declucth your machine from the handwheel so that the motor run only.Plug the machine and switcn but you must jug only if the motor run in couple second of course without the foot control this was disconnected already.So your foot control is defective vice versa if motor does not run without foot control motor is busted.
how to fix if foot contol is defective, in carbon type you must replcace the circular thick carbon.On Electronic control check the IC if this open or some capacitor and resistor are open,Replaced any pars that had been short circuited.If the motor is defective replaced the carbon brush mounted at two side of motor case,There is an opening port.The carbon brush has spring holding push this carbon brush to the brush armature of rotor.
