If this is a lotus TSP then you can't disengage the feed dogs, but your machine was sold with a little square metal plate that clips onto needle plate covering the feed dogs. If you dont have it in the accessories then you may be able to buy it from an Elna dealer or Ebay. If you are in USA try Ray White of White Sweing Center, he is renouned for Swiss Elna spares

SOURCE: Elna TSP machine the bobbin

Is the clutch disengaged to wind the bobbin? Is the needle going up and down okay?

If the needle is moving but the rotary hook is not rotating to catch the thread from the bobbin then it is likely that a gear has gone in the free arm area which drives the rotary hook.

If this is a star series TSP you may be able to remove the cover plate on the free arm area and view the shaft and gear in this area. Its just held down with a single screw near the needle plate.

If the pinon gear looks worn or split, then probably best job for a mechanic to replace this.

Hi Anne-Marie, I believe your TSP would look like this one below?

there is a manual available for download at www.diplodocs.com, just search with "Elna 58 tsp" and you should find it.

There is also a great website in the USA, www.whitesewingcenter.com where there is lots of Swiss Elna manuals, accessories and spare parts for sale, really great resource as Tavaro SA no longer operates and the current Elnas are made in Asia. They do sell O/S but you may need to pay by bank draft.

I trust that this helps you with your TSP, it was a well made machine.

SOURCE: I have an elna airelectronic tsp machine & cannot thread bobbin. Please help

Firstly, have you got an Elna metal bobbin? it should be solid on the bottom and have 7 holes on top. It is essential that you always use it this way, wind it with the holes on top and load it into the bobbin holder the same way.

Have a look at the image above, you need to load the bobbin in and click the thread into the tension spring so it doesn't lift back out when you pull the thread upwards. There should be an audible click as it goes in.

If you can't get it right or this image is just too small, feel free to email me and I'll send you the image and talk you through it, I have a TSP machine too. [email protected]

Also, check my tip on bobbin winding here http://www.fixya.com/support/r10598580-winding_bobbin_correctly it is important to get a good even tension onto your bobbin as you wind the thread on, you may need to manually add some tension to the thread as it winds off the spool, as I've described in my tip. I sold these machines for Elna and customers would bring them in complaining of problems with their machine. Almost aways, it was the needle in backwards, bobbin upside down, thread/lint buildup in the bobbin race or badly wound bobbin that was the problem.

Hope this helps you Gaylene, but if not, please email, I may be able to send you the relevant manual pages.

I need an Air foot control # 436310-20 for my Elna Stella TSP air electronic. How and where I can get this part?


I'd suggest www.sewingpartsonline.com if you are in USA.

https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/air-foot-control-elna-436410-20.aspx

Or you could try the Elna Guru, White Sewing Center www.whitesewingcenter.com, he's the specialist supplier for all things Swiss Elna.

The air control foot is the same for all the Elna Air Electronics, whether Stella, SU, TSP, TX etc.

Have inherited my mom's elna Stella tsp air electronic. The foot control became harder to press, then stopped working. Elna want ZAR858 for a new part! Can I repair it?


Im confused, Stella TSP air electronic has a round black and white air foot with a black air line to the side of the machine like this.

or the earlier Lotus TSP has a electric foot and cable which is made of older style plastics, these are harder to find now but Sewingpartsonline.com carry an aftermarket one like this

No, not cheap parts but beautiful machines that with TLC work so well.

Need repair manual for elna tsp. or info to repair tension mechanism


I would suggest that you join the Yahoo newsgroup called "Elna Heirlooms" then check out their "Files", one of the members may have this item scanned there for members to refer to. If not, there are some really experienced members too who may be able to help you with information on how to do this repair. But you'll need to specify which TSP, Elna made a TSP in the Star Series, and Stella air electronic and the bill air electronics too. Your side panel will have the model 2 digit number so just include that when you ask for help on Yahoo.
