I think you should consider a little oil if it's metal parts - it is a small spring that holds the needle in place

SOURCE: just changed the needle on

Firstly check that needle has been placed into the needle holder the right way, ie flat shank to the back. If you look closely at the needle there is a cut away at the back called the "Scarf" and this must face to the back of the machine as the rotary hook swings through there and catches the thread to make each stitch.

Also, check needle is fully up into the housing.

There is some good trouble shooting tips and tricks on this website. http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Repair/Sewing%20Machine%20Troubleshooting.htm

So check needle is in the right way, check threading up is correct and thread is in the needle eye. If none of these resolve the issue, then it is possible you knocked the timing out when you broke the needle. Remember, never drag fabric as it is stitched, let the machine feed it, you just guide it. Dragging is a sure fire way to break a needle.

If timing is out, (you can see info on what this means on www.sewusa.com site too) then you probably need to take it for a service to address this issue.

My needle will not go up and down

hi Tamara.
you have not said the make or model.but try this.
Make sure the push your bobbin winder to the right then to the left and see if that solves the problem. Your Old Machine has a Clutch & It Needs to be Released. The Clutch is this little dial that is inside of the hand wheel. In older machines, it was used to wind the bobbin without the needle going up and down.17 Jul 2015

The needle threader is stuckdown how do I release it

If the threader is stuck in the needle, try removing the needle from the needle clamp. If that doesn't work, take the machine to an authorized dealer for that make of sewing machines.

Release stop motion knob won't move

What are you calling a stop motion knob? Are you trying to stop the needle from moving while winding a bobbin?

Elna Carina won't zigzag

The machine's needle arm is not swinging left and right correctly, do I understand your problem correctly? I assume that you have the stitch selector set to zig zag, stitch length dial to 2 (green zone on the dial) and stitch width set to 4 to select a zig zag stitch. Needle up, push the needle bar to the right of the machine. Push above the needle thumb screw, dont push onto the needle itself. Pull the bar to the right, then release. It should return smoothly to the middle position. If you set the width to four and push the needle bar to the right, there is a spring that returns it to the middle, if this is not happening then good chance the needle bar cradle is seized up and the spring cant move it. You will need to take off the top of the machine and get some oil down the needle bar into the bearings, then apply pressure to the side of the needle bar, push to the right side to free up the bar movement. triflow oil is best and a means to deliver a drop or two down deep inside. I dabbed oil onto the needle bar with cotton swap stick on my machine that had this problem. You should be able to see a horizontal metal tube down there above the needle, the needle bar slides back and forwards on this but machines left can seize up due to dust, and dry old oil forming gunk on the moving parts. you need to lubricate and get it sliding freely again, you should be able to free it up with a bit of time, oil and gentle movement. mine took a couple of days to get it moving freely fully, it would give it a wiggle, dab of triflow oil, leave it, then have another go. I got triflow from a bicycle eshop on ebay, great stuff. Hope this helps you with your Carina, if not, post again and I'll try to help
