Question about Elna Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I have an old Elnita 130 sewing machine with no manual. How to I thread it? It appears to work but shows signs that I did not thread it correctly.

Can I get a manual online for Elnita 130. A search keeps changing my request to Elna or different Elnita number.

Elna make elinta machine and a 140 is the same threading as a 130
try entering the sites as most I go to require an account ( free) to procedure to read or down load and that process would be better for you
I went google and typed in--user manual for elinta sewing machine model 130-- and the sites show 130, 140 and more so select a site and go from there
thee is also a www.youtube.com>watch that runs for 1.29 and shows how to thread an old elna sewing machine
you might pick up a clue from that film

How do I thread a elnita 200 sewing machine?


Perhaps this will help:

HINT: Be sure to raise the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. It releases the upper tension disk so the thread will seat properly. Do this every time the upper is threaded.

I have mislaid the instructions for my Elnita 140. In particular, I need to find the instructions for threading, including the little bobbin that goes underneath!


This is a machine made under licence for Elna back in the 80's I believe. So should be a bobbin inside a bobbin case mounted vertically. Try this link for threading up, it should be very similar.

http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams/Threading_Pages/Elna_Sewing_machine_threading/Elna_225_threading_diagram.htm

Many machines have this bobbin case design and they all work much the same way, you need to place the bobbin into the bobbin case with it turning the right direction, click the thread into the tension spring on the outside of the bobbin case then latch it into the rotary hook of the machine, usually there is a little latch on the bobbin case that holds it in.

Top thread is usually fairly obvious, from the spool through an eyelet, through the take up lever, through a tension device, then down to the needle.

Always thread up with the pressure foot raised as this opens up the tension device and allows the thread to seat in correctly.

You can probably buy a manual for your machine from either sewusa.com or www.sewingpartsonline.com or "sewing machine relics" websites. Or just search ebay, there are several vendors who sell pdf copies of different manuals there.

I hope this helps you get sewing with your Elnita, four thumbs up if so.

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:

How do you thread an Elnita 140 sewing machine that is really old but can still work?


It's easy! Start from the thread holder at the top and go left - hook it under the hook which is behind the round disc that the bobbin winds around, then forward down thru the tension, then under the straight metal bit that's below and slightly to the left of the tension, then up into the hook (slide it behind and then slide forward into the hook), then back down and flip it into the small hook (which is just under the 'straight metal bit' mentioned above) and thru the needle! :-) Hope that helps. The machine might be an oldie but it's a goodie! cheers Lynda
