You are very welcome.....if you would like to re-vote accordingly, I guess this is another opportunity !

For those coming later to review the solution, somehow this post went off topic from the original exchange regarding an Elna with a reluctant Zig Zag motion caused by a sticking of the mechanism
....for anyone else with a similar issue, have a look here for advice on cleaning a slow or sticking zig zag mechanism

Needle plate cover for elna carina sewing machine


An Elna dealer is probably a good place to check. Also check with sewing machine parts vendors online. Since your machine is older, spare parts may be difficult to find unless you are lucky enough to find something on eBay, etc.

Elna carina manual


You may find this at www.diplodocs.com or www.scribed.com free, otherwise you will probably need to buy it from www.sewingpartsonline.com or www.sewing-machine-manuals.com , I think it came as 2 books, Instruction Manual and Sewing Guide.

Hi, I have an Elna Carina and the flywheel is


I can direct you to a service manual for your machine but it may be something that you need a trained Elna service technician to deal with.

Link is http://www.arizonaexpressionz.com/elna_service/air_elec_carina_elec_SM.pdf

I am more familiar with the SU air electronic where you just hold the outside of the flywheel and turn the inside knob to disengage and rengage the clutch - didn't realise the Carina had a button flywheel release until I looked in the service manual.

Anyway, you could try dismantling the flywheel following the exploded diagram in the service manual if you are technically minded.

Or just take it to a reputable serviceman, I'm a big fan to supporting these guys as their knowledge is invaluable.

Elna carina how to remove light bulb


There is a small hole on the left side of the top of the machine. Using a thin rod such as the L shaped edge guide that came with the accessories, push down in the hole and the lamp socket (which is spring loaded) will go down to allow you to grasp the bulb. Replace it with a similar long bulb available at any sewing machine repair shop.

Elna Carina service


I just had the same question for servicing of my Elna Carina. I contacted customer support for Elna and received the following e-mail: "Elna machines can be serviced by most authorized Elna dealers. If you need to locate an authorized Elna dealer in your area, please visit our official website at: www.elnausa.com and click on “Dealer Locator” on the top right hand side of the page."

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.
