Question about Elna Sewing Machines
From the info I found, this appears to be an older mechanical machine. If so, most likely it is seizing due to lack of frequent oiling and cleaning. AVOID using the machine until you get the issue resolved as it could damage the motor. The following may be helpful in getting your machine back to working again. Lack of oil can affect many different moving parts in the machine. It just happens that it has first appeared with the zig-zag capability of your machine. Apparently, manufacturers did not anticipate these machines would last so long--they assumed the machines would be periodically maintained by a professional technician who would regularly oil. As a result, many of these great machines have been sidelined simply for lack of oil... but they can be brought back to life.
