If the fly wheel is going around then the clutch isn't disengaged to wind the bobbin, you need to pull out the flywheel on your model to disengage the clutch for bobbin winding.

Take thread from thread spool across to bobbin winder thread guide, then back to bobbin and thread the tail through the hole on top of the bobbin. Place bobbin onto spindle on top of machine and then push it against the stop to engage the bobbin winding motor. HOld the thread tail up and start winding slowly until the bobbin core has been covered including the starting point. Stop and trim off the thread tail with scissors. COntinue winding bobbin and give the thread a nudge if needed to wind evening top middle and bottom of the bobbin. A good smooth wind is important. Also don't wind at full speed and keep an eye on the thread reel that the thread is coming off, you don't want it bouncing around as this will **** the thread and stretch then relax it affecting your bobbin wind.

Obviously if you know this and the bobbin winding mechanisim is just not working, then it will need a service/replacement by an Elna repair person.

Perhaps the spindle where the cam sets needs a drop of good quality sewing machine oil, like Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube. Be sure the stitch length & width are set to Zero.

If your machine did not come with a little screw driver, you will need to purchase a r flat tip screw driver. Usually, you can find small screw drivers in an eye glass kits too. Take your needle, your foot, bobbin, etc. all moving parts off and set aside. Then use your screw driver to remove the bottom plate. Sometimes it could be sitting right there you might can turn your machine upside down and you should here where it's at without having to disassemble the whole bobbing casing. I hope this was helpful.

ELNA Sew Fun Instruction Manual

The feed dogs on your machine do not drop. Instead, the machine has a darning plate that covers the feed dogs (see the accessories listed in the manual). If the darning plate is installed properly, it should prevent the feed dogs from contacting the fabric.

Make sure the stitch length dial is set @ 2 or higher. This will insure the fabric will move as the machine stitches.

this sounds like the internal clutch drive is worn, it probably is not the foot pedal at all. It may be possible to repair it if you can track down an Elna serviceman. My Air Electronic SU got worn internally and my serviceman was able to repair it once for me.

Over time, and especially when not used, there is a likelihood of dust and old oil forming a sort of glue, or clag....

Remove the needle for safety, then, when you have the setting on Zig zag, gently push the needle arm to the opposite side of the zig stitch.......release the needle arm, and if it springs back quickly, it is fine, if it moves slowly, or almost not at all, then the clag needs removing with application of few drops of methylated spirit to start, at the sort of piston affair that shifts needle arm L & R .....move the needle arm back & forth until it frees up, a drop of oil to finish.........if almost seized, may require leaving overnight after using a penetrating lubricant if it is really resistant....I have had them on the bench for 3 days with manual manipulation a few times each day before they finally come good.

thought I had a manual with an image of this but can't find it.

But pretty simple.
tally_girl_31.jpg Place thread onto one of the spool pins at the back right, and pull thread across to the left and around the white blob on top of the machine head then back to the right to the little thread eyelet, down through this and down to the thread guide taking thread around it from the right and back up on the left side, back up and through the thread take up lever, then down again catching behidn the little thread guide, then to needle bar thread guide, then to needle eye.

ALWAYS HOLD THE two threads firmly behind the pressure foot when you start sewing - Really important.

Always wind and insert the bobbin with the holes on top, smooth side downwards. Place bobbin into bobbin holder and take thread take towards you and into the tension spring groove, pressing down on the thread with your finger until you hear it click into the tension spring. pull back the other way to check it is in there, if it comes out, do it again.

Bobbin will rotate anticlockwise when you pull the thread.

THen put needle plate cover down and draw bottom thread to the top using flywheel or the needle up/down button on these lovely machines.

Hope this helps, if not post again and I'll dig out images from my SU manual.

Probably unevenly wound on the bobbin. Or tension needing adjusting, be careful to note where tension spring started before adjusting and do in very small increments.
Perhaps the spring has some fluff stuck on it and thread cannot slide through easily. Take out bobbin and clean

there is a service manual to download at this website http://www.arizonaexpressionz.com/elna_service/carina_500_service_manual.pdf

but it is written for a trained technician and may assume a certain level of expertise of the reader.

Hope this is of assistance to you.

If you are in the USA you could also contact White Sewing Center, www.whitesewingcenter.com - this gentleman actually trains how to repair sewing machines, and sells many Elna parts, machines and services them too.

Normally the light bulb function should not affect the machine's ability to operate, however, it could be if your machine is a computerized model. Try replacing the bulb and then test.

knotted up thread under the material indicates that the needle thread tension is incorrect ( needs tightening)
once you have that correct the material, will feed normally
use scrap when adjusting and the correct tension is when the top and bottom threads meet at the join ( middle -center )of the materials being sewn

Do you mean the auto needle threader?

Mine won't work on very small needle sizes so I resort to the old manual needle threader for these. Ditto for twin needles.

Otherwise its a case of pulling the auto threader down so the hook swings into the needle eye, then pulling the thread over the face of the needle and catching it into the hook, then release the threader so it pulls back through the needle eye, taking the thread with it.

The only other thing that springs to mind is "is the needle at the top position in its stich cycle so that the threader lines up with the needle eye?

hope these ideas help a little.

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.
