The humming noise comes from the motor - it gets powered but it doesn't start spinning.
There are 2 possibilities why this is happening:
1. the motor itself is defective - the start coil or the control capacitor powering it are defective. To test that you must remove the motor from the unit, attach it to a bench and power it directly from the mains. If the motor doesn't spins on its own but will do it if you spin it manually right before connecting it to the mains then the capacitor or the starting coil have failed. The failed capacitor is easy to spot, you will need an ohm and l-meter for the coil.
2. the mechanism is blocked. The only way to check that is to literally dismantle the machine to find out .
If you don't have the experience to do these tests safely then it's time to take the machine to a repair shop.

ELNA 62c, AM UNABLE TO ZIGZAG WITH IT. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG? DOES THE ZIGZAG HAVE ISSUES & WEAR OUT? IT TRIES TO START TO MOVE THE NEEDLE OVER BUT IT DOESN'T DO THE ZIG ZAG STITCH.HOW CAN I FIX THIS?


From the info I found, this appears to be an older mechanical machine. If so, most likely it is seizing due to lack of frequent oiling and cleaning. AVOID using the machine until you get the issue resolved as it could damage the motor. The following may be helpful in getting your machine back to working again. Lack of oil can affect many different moving parts in the machine. It just happens that it has first appeared with the zig-zag capability of your machine. Apparently, manufacturers did not anticipate these machines would last so long--they assumed the machines would be periodically maintained by a professional technician who would regularly oil. As a result, many of these great machines have been sidelined simply for lack of oil... but they can be brought back to life.

Elna Tavaro SA swiss made machines all take a 720100 bobbin, looks like this

Flat on the bottom and 7 holes on top and slightly dished. Dont use anything else. You can buy them aftermarket from www.sewingpartsonline.com or any Elna dealer and I have seen them in my local Spotlight in Australia.
