I think that it is your timing messed up and you have to take it in for service because it requires expertise and special tools. Unfortunately, it is usually expensive unless it is under warranty.

I have a Elna air electronic 68, I am not able to use different function. Like thr preprogrammed.


Your AE 68 will have three dials across the front, from L-R, stitch selector, stitch width and stitch length. To sew any stitch with a sidewise needle movement, you will need to turn the stitch selector to that stitch on the selector, then turn the stitch width to between 3 and 4 and the stitch length to a similar setting, adjusting to get the stitch formation you need. To sew with the discs, set all the dials to zero, then insert a cam into the Elnagraph on top of the machine. Then turn the selector to the disc icon, and the stitch length around to the "S" and stitch width to 4.

Don't use reverse if using the elnagraph stitches.

Just bought this used machine, it worked fine in tryouts but after transit the stitch width switch is not working. It automatically goes to the reverse position and will not dial down to any widths.


the forward /reverse control sets the stitch length(width) the closer to neutral the smaller the stitch
full forward or full reverse is max stitch length

The little Teeth/feeder under the foot doesn't push the fabric out. The fabric doesn't move


check where the direction button/lever is
it controls the feed mechanism and if it is in the middle the teeth will just go up and down
set it one way and it moves forward and set the other way will go in reverse
it is graduated to provide a stitch length ( number of stitches per 1")

Machine does not appear to have a button to sew in reverse


try these suggestions
Reduce the stitch length to zero. The machine will stitch in place and form a locked stitch
1) rotate the material and sew over the same stitching. Leave the needle down in the work and raise the presser foot, then turn the fabric around.
2) decrease the stitch length to very small for a few stitches

OR
3) hold the fabric and prevent it from feeding at the beginning and end of a seam, which makes very short stitches

4) stitch about 1/2", raise the needle and presser foot, return the fabric to the beginning position and stitch over the first half inch of seam again. Do the same at the end

Easiest way to make a buttonhole...manual does not tell much info


Easiest way is to create a bar tack at one end of the buttonhole (widest stitch width and stitch length set to 0). Stitch maybe 4 or 5 stitches.
Then move needle all the way to the left, set stitch length to very short (maybe somewhere between 0 & 1), width to slightly less than half, stitch forward to the end of the buttonhole.
Then make another bar tack (as above). Move needle all the way to the right, set to less than half width, short stitch length, and stitch in REVERSE to first bar tack. To tie off, set width to 0 and length to 0 and stitch 2-3 times in place. Raise presser foot, pull gently on fabric and clip threads.

Brother AE2500 reverse sewing lever is too stiff to move , how does this work please, bacause in the CD provided with this sewing machine , this lever (plastic) for doing reverse is being moved down t


Try turning the flywheel and operate the reverse lever at the same time. Some machines need to be at a certain point in the stitch cycle for the reverse lever to be used.

I have used consew bls-600 industrial sewing I purchased recently. The stitch length 0-4 dial was not working and was very tight. I tried to open it. Now the reverse handle is also not working and t


Shorten your stitch in reverse the machine can't do a stitch that long in reverse. Also google your make and model machine and the word Manual so you can properly learn to use the machine safely.

Dogs motor?


Does it have a stitch length dial which ranges from 4 down to 0 and then into negative numbers? If so, the negative numbers will be reverse stitches. Some machines have this functionality and its very happy for doing mending or stitching in awkward places to sew backwards without having to hold the reverse button.

However, if yours is only sewing backwards when stitch length is set to 2, 3 or 4, then its probably a drive problem internally. Don't think your machine has a seperate motor for the feed dogs, probably a gear driven shaft in the free arm.

Feed dogs pushing fabric in reverse


Check that the quick reverse button is not jammed-in, first. If not, check a pattern that uses forward and backward feed, such as the honeycomb stitch and check if varying the stitch length makes any difference - if its still only feeding in a reverse direction, you're probably going to have to get it checked-out by a Bernina service agent, because this could be one of a number of problems, ranging from the simplest - the plug carrying the wiring to the stitch length stepper motor might have dropped-off the main 'S'-print control board - to the worst - the main control board might be faulty. The stepper motor could also be faulty or, indeed, there might be a jammed stitch-length mechanism in the free-arm, if it hasn't been serviced for a while. Good Luck

The question was regarding the Elna 2002 not 2007 and it wasn't a problem. I just do not understand how the pattern selection works. Thank you.
