Do you mean you've plugged in a 110V machine to 220 V without an adaptor? Or visa versa.

Doens't sound good, being a computerised machine that could have fried the circuit boards and/or engine.

I'd suggest you need to take it to a service technician to establish how damaged it is.

If you go to you may be able to find a local dealer in your country.

Hello. My Elna 664 is only 4 months old. Now it's not working. I can hear the motor running but nothing is moving!! I'm freaking out!! Sometimes it will start working again but not now :(

take it to an authorized elna sewing repair shop for warranty repairs
try tightening the knob on the end of the shaft where the big pulley is ( what you turn by hand to line up the needle before sewing)

The pipe connecting the footbellows to the Elna TX electronic sewing machine has been damaged where can I find a replacement?

I saw an air electronic foot control for sale today on here in Australia 1/3/2011, $45 I think. Could be the best bet to get a one.

As its an airline, you could try to tape the damage? or if it is at the plug end, cut and shorten the airline and replace the plug end.

I need a new foot for my old elna, where can I purchase one. Elna SP purchased around 1971 --1972 from White Sewing Center , Cocoa Fla I live in Mount Holly N.C. 28120

you can buy Elna parts from, he specialises in the Swiss Elnas and carries range of stock. Or or stock Elna parts for both early Swiss as well as the latet ones. not sure if you meant a pressure foot or the foot control. If its pressure feet the generic low shank feet may well fit your mschine too once you buy the pressure foot adaptor for the newer clip on feet. There was a Lotus Sp and a star SP but the pressure feet were the same with the built in shank you attached with a thumb screw. the air electronics had the adaptor and clip on feet but they have same height and needle position so can use on earlier ones too.
