Question about Elna 2007 Mechanical Sewing Machine

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.

    Same machine and same problem, have new/different electronic foot control now, can't find anything which looks like a suppressor/fuse like to remove. Help

    Littlegem is right, there is no seppressor/fuse. Do you have any other suggestions?

    I have the same problem with my moms Super Elna
    it keeps running I know it is the foot pedal, I guess I will open it tomorrow and see if it has a fuse.

Need threading instructions for Elna SPECIAL not Super circa 1969-71


Sewing machines basically thread in the same manner--from the spool through a thread guide or two, then through the tension disk, up and over the take-up lever, then down through guides to the needle.. Just be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread so the thread will seat fully in the tension disk.

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

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.

My very old Elna Super foot pedal does not always start the machine. When I help it along with the wheel it might start going and then maybe not. Is it the motor or the foot peddle that is bad? Can it...


this sounds like the internal clutch drive is worn, it probably is not the foot pedal at all. It may be possible to repair it if you can track down an Elna serviceman. My Air Electronic SU got worn internally and my serviceman was able to repair it once for me.

Elna 9000 sews automatically


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