You need to set the stitch width dial to zero, the stitch length dial to zero so that the cam following arm is disengaged and moved back off the cam. Now look at the cam, it is sitting on a silver shiny spindle, press down onto this with your fingers and this will unlock the little finger which locks onto the cam, releasing the cam upwards. Press firmly and it should release.

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?

There is a sewing guide available free here for the SU which is very similar to the Carina

but not an instruction Manual.

The SU, Carina, 500 and Jubilee all came with two books, instruction manual and sewing guide.

I can direct you to a service manual for your machine but it may be something that you need a trained Elna service technician to deal with.

Link is http://www.arizonaexpressionz.com/elna_service/air_elec_carina_elec_SM.pdf

I am more familiar with the SU air electronic where you just hold the outside of the flywheel and turn the inside knob to disengage and rengage the clutch - didn't realise the Carina had a button flywheel release until I looked in the service manual.

Anyway, you could try dismantling the flywheel following the exploded diagram in the service manual if you are technically minded.

Or just take it to a reputable serviceman, I'm a big fan to supporting these guys as their knowledge is invaluable.

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.

ELNA CARINA FOOD PEDAL NOT WORKING


Elna Carina has an air electronic foot controller, so you need to firstly check the air line coming from the round air pedal has no holes, is not crimped or squashed under the chair leg. Hold the plug end against your hand or cheek, squeeze the round bulb and see if you can feel a puff of air coming from it. If no, then check the air control black membrane for a hole, ditto the air line hose. You can still buy parts from sewingpartsonline.com for these Elna Carina Electronic 66 Parts . If the line and foot pedal are sound, then the problem lies on the internal actuator which is inside the right side panel of the machine. You can remove this panel by undoing two screws on the side (disconnect from power first!)
The panel will remain connected to the machine body by some cables, you may be able to check out the actuator and see if it is faulty. If its just a tiny hole in it, it might be repairable with a drop of superglue. For parts/service in the USA, Whites Sewing Center is the Swiss Elna specialist, and they may have spare parts in stock.

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


ELNA Carina Instruction Manual

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.
