SOURCE: how do I raise the feeder feet
There is a slide switch on the underside of the back of the free-arm. The feed dogs will not immediately raise when you slide it, the machine must make a full rotation for it to engage.

Testimonial: "I am so pleased that I was able to get my manual and now know how much I can do with my machine. Keep up the good work. We all need to work together."

Sounds like the bobbin case has shifted inside the rotary hook area. Have you got the manual? if so, does it give directions to remove the bobbin case as part of the cleaning instructions? If you have never taken it out, perhaps take pics with your digital camera to help you put it back in correctly. It is held in by a magnet underneath it. Remove the needle plate, pressure foot and needle, and the bobbin.
Have a good look at the bobbin case, it should have a stopper which sits against a little bump and might have two red marks to line up correctly. Are these lining up or has it shifted a little. If so, then lift out the bobbin case by holding the edge closest to you and lifting it upwards and towards you. Brush the underneath area out carefully to remove any lint or thread bits with your little brush bringing the lint out of the area and into a bin (dont push it around into the area under the rotary hook) and don't blow it out with air. Have a good look at the bobbin case too and check it for any damage, if you dislodge it while stitching the needle can strike it and as its plastic there may be little marks or bits of plastic now, if so, give them a gentle rub with fine grade sandpaper (away from the machine works) or a nail file to smooth off. I found that mine had a couple of holes and the thread was then catching on the rough edge of plastic and jamming constantly. I actually bought a new bobbin case after 3 goes to sort this out.
Now put the bobbin case back into place, lining up the red marks if it has them. Manually turn the flywheel towards you through a stitch sequence, the holder should sit still while the hook goes around it.
Reassemble the machine, rethread and test sew. I hope this helps, if you have tried all this already, then perhaps take it to your Elna dealer for further investigation/service.
