50 year old elnas made stitches by cams. look to see if the machine has a cam in it. you can see this by opening lid on top of machine. cams are black with red or white showing the pattern of the cam. could also have broken cam stack gear. That would require technician with elna experience

Change the needle first in case it is faulty, if it is sewing straight stitch perfectly then you need to check the pattern camstack on top of the machine to see if there is a split in it

Remove thread. Remove the needle plate. Turn hand wheel toward you. Rethread machine. Make sure presser foot in up position when you thread needle. Make sure needle all way up in shaft, flat side back and more rounded side facing you Turn hand wheel toward you again and observe the following: As needle comes down, make sure the needle's eye makes pass by the scarf of the needle.

Install a new needle. There could be something wrong with the needle (sometimes they are defective out of the package). Also, check that it is installed facing the correct direction and that it is pushed all the way up. Also be sure that you are using the right needle for your machine.
