Question about Elna 2007 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Every few seconds the needle stays down and doesnt move but the motor still goes, plus motor makes a squealing noise sometimes...a mechanic on phone said it might be the timing? is it fixable at home?Its an Elna Stella SP sewing machine.
Its a lovely swiss made machine, this is an electronic motor so the needle pressure should remain constant no matter what speed you sew at. The needle staying down and the squealing sounds more like drive issues inside or possibly gunk buildup.
If it was my machine, I would take it to a qualified Elna technician and ask for him to look at it. These machines are small and well made so well worth spending the money to give it a service and get it back to 1000% IMHO.
