If I buy an Elna Lotus SP sewing machine from the UK, will the voltages/plugs be a problem, i.e. will it suit our 240v power supply?

If it won't fit get it replaced by someone that can make it fit.

You don't say where you live, but a UK machine will be OK on a 240V 50 Hz supply, as in Australia for instance. However the plugs are probably different so you would need an adapter.

If it is a US 110 volt machine it will go bang and set the motor on fire.

However, the supply in the UK is 220 volts, so if yours is 240, it will be fine. The label on the machine will probably say 210 to 240 volts anyway.

I have an old elna lotus sp sewing machine and need to reduce the speed on the foot control is this possible


The Lotus should have the integrated foot controller and power cord in one. Some of these had a switch on the foot controller which reduced the power to half speed. That's the only way to adjust the speed other than the foot on the pedal. The later models Air Electronic have a slide speed control on the front face of the machine which made life easier.

How do you adjust the tension control on an Elna lotus SP


The tension dial is on the front of the machine right above the needle. The higher the number, the tighter the tension is applied to the top thread. HINT: When threading the top thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot throughout the entire threading process. This allows the thread to seat completely in the tension disk. Tension is correct when the top and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

I need a new foot for my old elna, where can I purchase one. Elna SP purchased around 1971 --1972 from White Sewing Center , Cocoa Fla I live in Mount Holly N.C. 28120


you can buy Elna parts from www.whitesewingcenter.com, he specialises in the Swiss Elnas and carries range of stock. Or www.sewingpartsonline.com or www.sewusa.com stock Elna parts for both early Swiss as well as the latet ones. not sure if you meant a pressure foot or the foot control. If its pressure feet the generic low shank feet may well fit your mschine too once you buy the pressure foot adaptor for the newer clip on feet. There was a Lotus Sp and a star SP but the pressure feet were the same with the built in shank you attached with a thumb screw. the air electronics had the adaptor and clip on feet but they have same height and needle position so can use on earlier ones too.

Power range / watts for Elna 6005 sewing machine


There will be a sticker or engraved fine print next to the power socket or on the bottom of your Elna that will say what voltages it is compatible with. If it says 110v/220v you can use a plug adapter.Note well that the adapter doesn't change the voltage in anyway it just makes the plug fit. If it only says 110v which is most likely get an AC to AC adapter, **** Smith Electronics or Tandy will be able to help. If you're unsure don't take the risk it will take a second to destroy the electronics if you use the wrong voltage!
