Question about Elna Sewing Machines
The needle never moves forward/back on its own for most sewing machines. The needle bar goes up and down. The fabric moves due to the action of the feed dogs. First remove the fabric from under the presser foot. Check for tangled thread wrapped around the feed dogs or fabric/thread going down into the bobbin area in a tangle. Next check if the feed dogs are up. (When the feed dogs are down or covered (on some machines), the machine is in darning mode. The fabric will only move if you move it yourself.) With the fabric out of the way, rotate the hand wheel and check if the feed dogs are moving. Open up the bobbin compartment and clean out any lint, thread or other debris that may be tangling the mechanism. Take off the throat plate and check the feed dogs. A damaged throat plate can stop the feed dogs from moving properly. You may need to replace the throat plate.
For some machines, you may need to make sure that the unit is not in bobbin wind mode. This is usually obvious since the needle bar won't move either.
I hope this helps.

ok it sounds like either the gear on the rotoary hook is bad "lot of money to fix" or there is a small pin that moves the feed dogs make sure it is setted correctly. also make sure the pressure foot is down all the way.

Computerized machines need to be serviced by an authorized sewing machine technician, preferably Elna.
Diving into this may cause more problems and end up costing you more money for repair.

This could be a loose connection on the circuit board or it may be a bad board, either way it should go to a tech for repair.
