Question about Elna Sewing Machines
SOURCE: step motor error
I am working on a 6003Q right now with this exact problem. The shuddering sound is the stepper motor working, but hitting the movement limit stop. The reason it keeps trying to move is that the sensor has failed. In the case of the machine I am working on, it is the zig-zag stepper motor position sensor that has failed. Elna does not sell the sensor separately, it comes complete with stepper motor, mounting frame, and cable, which is a shame because it is approx. $70 dealer cost for the assembly. The sensor is nothing more than an LED as a "sender" with a corresponding "receiver". There is a blade on the stepper motor drive gear that passes between the two and breaks the beam signaling that the "home" position has been reached. Unfortunately, the sender-receiver pair are sealed in a plastic housing so they are not replaceable. The part number of the zig-zag stepper motor assembly is 395727-69.
Best of luck,

SOURCE: how do I raise the feeder feet
There is a slide switch on the underside of the back of the free-arm. The feed dogs will not immediately raise when you slide it, the machine must make a full rotation for it to engage.
