    Elna 62C will only straight stitch

    Yesterday my Elna 62C made a few unusual noises and now only sews straight stitches. What part needs repair and how easy is it to fix?

    Thank you for the picture but that spring is attached so something else is wrong.

    Glad it is there.

    Take the top off and turn your handwheel by hand and look for broken bits anywhere. turn it upsidie down over a clean flat space and see if any pieces fall out. Lube everything that should be moving.
