Question about Elna 2007 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

I used a single cam in my Elna Carina and I can't remove it. help!

I have a 26 year old Elna Carina sewing machine, in excellent condition, which I use regularly and am the original owner. I was using a single Cam ... # 02 in it with no problem but now I am unable to remove the Cam. Can anyone give me some idea why this might have happened and how I might go about removing it?

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.

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

SOURCE: machine doesnt switch off keeps running slowly

Thanks for return email.
I took the machine to an Elna dealer who fixed the problem by by-passing the (small board) switch that returns the needle to the ready position after filling the bobbin. It is quite frustrating not having that facility after being so used to it.

Kind regards

tally_girl_2.jpg I don't suppose it would be so simple as setting the wheel inside the elnagraph to "A" to engage the automatic stitches? I've done it myself once or twice LOL.

Is it possible that you've lowered the feed dogs and not raised them again? Is the stitch length dial set to 2.5 and not on a buttonhole blue setting or the Automatic "A" setting?

SOURCE: Does anyone know of a cam to use in an Elna Carina

I am certain that we demonstrated this stitch with voile or hankerchief linen and using a wing needle and fine silk thread or rayon machine embroidery thread with the turkish hemstitch cam, cam number 140.

For the non heirloom sewers out there entredeaux looks like this.

Did Elna Carina SU 66 originally come with a straight stitch foot and throat plate?


No, the Carina came with a standard zig zag plate and 5 feet I think from memory, the teflon coated foot , the embroidery foot, buttonhole foot, zipper foot and darning foot.

How to remove a can from an elna Carina . Its stuck and can't remove it. My grandma gave it to me . She hasn't used it in years


push down on the shiny metal centre spindle that holds the cam, this pops the cam up off the little "finger" that it locks onto. If you can't push down at all, try dribbling some good quality sewing machine oil (tri-flow if you can get it, its brilliant) down the centre of this spindle and give it an hour or so, then try again. The cam won't just pull off, you need to push the metal spindle down for it to release.

You may find this at www.diplodocs.com or www.scribed.com free, otherwise you will probably need to buy it from www.sewingpartsonline.com or www.sewing-machine-manuals.com , I think it came as 2 books, Instruction Manual and Sewing Guide.

Yes, any low shank should work. If it doesn't you can always regift it to someone.

Elna Carina service


I just had the same question for servicing of my Elna Carina. I contacted customer support for Elna and received the following e-mail: "Elna machines can be serviced by most authorized Elna dealers. If you need to locate an authorized Elna dealer in your area, please visit our official website at: www.elnausa.com and click on “Dealer Locator” on the top right hand side of the page."

Elna Carine Electronic Sewing Machine


You should be able to buy a manual online but it may be a cd or image pdf file. Try www.sewingpartsonline.com or www.sewusa.com. If they don't have the Carina but have the Air Electronic SU, model 68 then this will be almost the same. Main difference is the Carina has the needle up/down button.
