Question about Elna 2007 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I'm using an Elna machanical sewing machine. This machine is probably 50 years old. I was sewing different stitches, change the disc and now the machine only is sewing a straight stitch. I have moved everything, but I can't get it to do any other stitching except straight. Can you help me?
50 year old elnas made stitches by cams. look to see if the machine has a cam in it. you can see this by opening lid on top of machine. cams are black with red or white showing the pattern of the cam. could also have broken cam stack gear. That would require technician with elna experience

Often these are just stuck from dry grease or oil from non use. A hot blowdryer to the effected areas works wonders softening this up and being able to move again. And penetrating oil also helps.

Do you have a black disc that goes in the top?
