My Elnita 245i is squeaking when it goes forward, but not in reverse. Ive oiled inside the needle mechanism and bobbin case areas. No change. It is also breaking top thread after 6 inches


..

If your machine is mechanical (not computerized), it could very well benefit from a good cleaning and oiling, including the internal mechanical movement. Squeaking could be the feed dogs but could be a multitude of places.

When threading the machine, be sure to ALWAYS raise the presser foot. The fact that the top thread is breaking about 6 inches into the sewing indicates that the thread is catching somewhere. Sometimes, it catches on the thread notch on the thread spool. Other possibilities is that the thread is looped around something, ie the spool pin, a thread guide... Remove the thread entirely from the machine and rethread from the beginning.

Perhaps this will help:

HINT: Be sure to raise the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. It releases the upper tension disk so the thread will seat properly. Do this every time the upper is threaded.

I have mislaid the instructions for my Elnita 140. In particular, I need to find the instructions for threading, including the little bobbin that goes underneath!


This is a machine made under licence for Elna back in the 80's I believe. So should be a bobbin inside a bobbin case mounted vertically. Try this link for threading up, it should be very similar.

http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams/Threading_Pages/Elna_Sewing_machine_threading/Elna_225_threading_diagram.htm

Many machines have this bobbin case design and they all work much the same way, you need to place the bobbin into the bobbin case with it turning the right direction, click the thread into the tension spring on the outside of the bobbin case then latch it into the rotary hook of the machine, usually there is a little latch on the bobbin case that holds it in.

Top thread is usually fairly obvious, from the spool through an eyelet, through the take up lever, through a tension device, then down to the needle.

Always thread up with the pressure foot raised as this opens up the tension device and allows the thread to seat in correctly.

You can probably buy a manual for your machine from either sewusa.com or www.sewingpartsonline.com or "sewing machine relics" websites. Or just search ebay, there are several vendors who sell pdf copies of different manuals there.

I hope this helps you get sewing with your Elnita, four thumbs up if so.

Hello! I'm a beginner at sewing and recently inherited an Elnita 130 sewing machine. Does anyone know how I can find a manual for this? I have searched a number of websites selling sewing machine...


You can check this out. Doesn't list your model, but it is most likely similar to the 120 and 140. Usually, the only difference between one model and the next is one will have a few for stitches or added functions. The basic operation is probably the same:

How do you thread an Elnita 140 sewing machine that is really old but can still work?


It's easy! Start from the thread holder at the top and go left - hook it under the hook which is behind the round disc that the bobbin winds around, then forward down thru the tension, then under the straight metal bit that's below and slightly to the left of the tension, then up into the hook (slide it behind and then slide forward into the hook), then back down and flip it into the small hook (which is just under the 'straight metal bit' mentioned above) and thru the needle! :-) Hope that helps. The machine might be an oldie but it's a goodie! cheers Lynda
