Elna Super will not stop running

This sewing machine will not stop running. When the power is turned on it takes off and does not stop. If the foot control is pressed it will go even faster.

Electronic foot control on My Elna free arm model SU is not getting power to the machine from the electronic foot control. The light comes on, but the control will not provide power to the machine.


take the foot control in to a sewing machine repair shop and have it tested
earlier models were a simple resistance variation but later models are electronic control
it could be a simple broke connection in the control

How do I fix my 1975 Elna SU which is sewing at full speed even though my foot is off the foot control. Had to remove power cord to stop it !


Your foot control is needing to be either repaired or replaced. Here is a good web site for replacements:

My air elecntronic SU, which is thirty years old, doesn't always stop sewing when I take my foot off the air pedal. The machine keeps running until I tap a number of times on the pedal or turn the machine...


This will be the bellows inside the side panel of the machine where your foot pedal air line feeds into rather than the foot pedal. Really short of cutting or sitting on the air line with your chair, not much goes wrong there. It,should be repairable if you can locate a Swiss Elna trained/experienced techician.

Can a genic foot pedal be used on an Elna Super?


Take a look at the side plate on your Elna and look for a two digit code, this is the model number.

I'm assuming that you are in the USA on 110 Voltage. If so visit this website,
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/elna-sewing-machine-parts-model-list.aspx and choose your model. They sell replacement foot pedals, just check the profile of the plug that goes into your machine.

The other option is contact the Elna guru, www.whitesewingcenter.com, he stocks a wide range of swiss Elna parts and may have the original foot control second hand.

If you are on 240 voltage then you'll need to source it from a country that has the same voltage like UK, Australia or NZ.

Lastly, you may wish to join the Yahoo group called "ELna Heirlooms" this user group of Elna owners is really helpful and shares lots of their love and knowledge for these beautifully made Swiss machines. Many of them have even earlier models than yours such as the Green Grasshopper, the first Elna machine.

Elna SU 62 won't stop running. I wired a universal foot control to my original power cord but the machine runs unless it is unplugged. Others have asked the same question but I can't find a detailed...


go to yahoo.com and join the Elna Heirloom group there. Several of the members are very knowledgeable and I've read fixes on this issue there.

My elna 9000 says something like bRe and will not sew. How can I fix this?


I am not sure which machine you are using, but I have an Elna 9000. The only code I have ever seen come up on the screen is "btr" which signifies that the batteires for the electronic memory are running low. My machine will continue to sew, but this code comes up every time I turn the machine on - then the machine sets itself up normally and will sew fine. Plus, changing the batteries cancels all the memorized information on my machine.

I am not sure if this is the same code you are getting. My Elna 9000 manual does not list any other codes for the machine.

Have you taken your machine to a service dealer to have them check it out?
Best of luck. I know it is frustrating when you are in the middle of a project and have to stop to have your machine serviced.

Elna 9000 sews automatically


Most likely this is a problem in the foot control and it will need to be replaced or repaired.
