Hello, Please can you tell me how to lower the dogs teeth on Elna SU airelectronic 68 so as to do free hand embroidery. Thank you julie Roberts


The owner's manual would have that information. If you don't have it, here's one:

Instruction Manual Elna 68

unfortunately, Elna manuals are usually not free

You could probably also ask your Elna dealer how to do darning on your machine. You will also need a darning or free motion quilting foot for your machine. Your machine either has the ability to raise/lower the feed dogs or the machine came with a darning plate to cover the feed dogs.

The following video series may have some information:

Is the hole on top of elna T34D overlocker for oil?


The Elna T-34 should only be oiled at the spots specified in the manual on page 25. There is a spot to be oiled below the thread spools (behind the needle bar). Another spot to oil is on the hole on the top of the bed of the sewing machine behind the needle bar/presser foot lever. The other spots that get oiled are in the needle/thread section behind the front cover. Manuals Lib has the manual here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/939632/Elna-T-34.html . The direct link to the page with the oiling directions is https://www.manualslib.com/manual/939632/Elna-T-34.html?page=27#manual .

I hope this helps.

Just want a maintenance manual so I can oil my Elna 740 Excellence sewing machine. Emailed the company, but they tell me just to have it done with service visit once a year. I want to oil the machine...


The manual should show you how to clean out the rotary hook area by brushing it out with a little brush provided in your tool kit. It should also show you how to remove the bobbin case and clean under it. Important: if you haven't removed the bobbin case before, then please take photos beforre you start so you can get it back into the right position when you have cleaned underneath. There may be two red marks on the case and surround to match up but I couldn't actually get a close up image of this model to check this.

Here is image from my Janome 6500 manual for this procedure, it should be similar on your Elna 740.

There is probably also an oiling wick in the centre of rotary hook under the bobbin holder. Remove the needle plate, pressure foot and needle, then take out the bobbin and bobbin holder and underneath is a circular metal part with a hole/depression in the centre. Wick will be inside there, don't mess with it!!. Just brush the whole area out, removing the lint from the brush into your bin. Don't try to blow the lint out with compressed air either.

You can add a drop of good quality clear sewing machine oil to the wick every couple of months or so, but keeping the area clean is equally a good preventative measure.

Don't try to use any other bobbin in it, and always load and wind with the holes on top.

You can still buy these; one supplier is sewingpartsonline, here is like to the item

Elna Carine Electronic Sewing Machine


You should be able to buy a manual online but it may be a cd or image pdf file. Try www.sewingpartsonline.com or www.sewusa.com. If they don't have the Carina but have the Air Electronic SU, model 68 then this will be almost the same. Main difference is the Carina has the needle up/down button.
