You may need to take it for service if you are unable to locate any thread wrapped somewhere it shouldn't be.

How to get the needle to come up nothing will move on a 130 elna contessa


my sewing machine would do that from time to time, try turning the wheel hard enough to break the thread if it's stuck, if that doesnt work then try unscrewing the needle and turning the knob so that it lifts away from the needle then you can get a better view of whats going inside.

Hello, when trying to thread the bobbin, I turn the fly wheel toward me to disengage it from the needle mechanism but the bobbin wheel will not turn. It is an old machine a contessa 120. Could you advise...


Do you also need to press the bobbin spindle over against a stop to make it engage the bobbin winder? Many of these mechanical machines have a system where the bobbin winder is driven by a black rubber which is engaged against the main drive wheel in this way.

So, if you are disengaging the clutch, pushing the spindle over, and still no action, then it could be that this black rubber wheel has perished.

Try http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/elna-120-sewing-machine-parts.aspx this page, you will see the black tyre item I mean.

Might be something you'd prefer to ask a service technician to do as he could give the machine a good clean and lube at the same time, the older machines will keep going providing you can get spares and they get a good service from time to time.
