Question about Elna 1010
If you have not used it for several years and now not getting any drive action, then it is possible one of the gears inside it has failed, broken or siezed up. This would be inside the free arm or near the motor probably.
I would suggest that you take it to a sewing machine repair shop and get it serviced, all machine manufacturer's recommend a service every 1-2 years to lube internally, clean out and address any issues. Just the same as getting the car serviced.
My local shop charges $80 for a service/clean plus any parts to be replaced, well worth the money in my humble opinion.
