Hi Anne-Marie, I believe your TSP would look like this one below?

there is a manual available for download at www.diplodocs.com, just search with "Elna 58 tsp" and you should find it.

There is also a great website in the USA, www.whitesewingcenter.com where there is lots of Swiss Elna manuals, accessories and spare parts for sale, really great resource as Tavaro SA no longer operates and the current Elnas are made in Asia. They do sell O/S but you may need to pay by bank draft.

I trust that this helps you with your TSP, it was a well made machine.

SOURCE: elna tsp air electronic 58 will not zig zag stitch

Firstly will it sew any stitches that require the needle to swing from side to side? the serpentine stitch or blind hem stitch?

As this machine is now 20+ years old (but a beautifully made Swiss Elna, don't junk it) I must ask firstly has it had a full service recently?

What can happen with these (and many machines if left for a bit) is that the needle bar bearings will sieze up and the needle won't swing from side to side. It can certainly be fixed if this is the case, I've done it with a TSP and a SU Air Electronic machine.

Other possibility is that the spring that pulls the neeld bar back to position may have broken. Check this as follows. Set stitch width dial to 4, stitch selector to zig zag and press the needle bar to the right, place your finger high on the bar, not down on the needle itself. If it moves to the right freely, then release it and it should move back to centre itself if the spring is there.

If the bar does spring back slowly and the machine hasn't been serviced for some time; then good chance its the bearings. You may want to take it for a full service as a technician can check out the timing also as well as giving it a full clean and lube internally.

I need an Air foot control # 436310-20 for my Elna Stella TSP air electronic. How and where I can get this part?


I'd suggest www.sewingpartsonline.com if you are in USA.

https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/air-foot-control-elna-436410-20.aspx

Or you could try the Elna Guru, White Sewing Center www.whitesewingcenter.com, he's the specialist supplier for all things Swiss Elna.

The air control foot is the same for all the Elna Air Electronics, whether Stella, SU, TSP, TX etc.

How to take the cover off an elna air electronic


could you describe when you hear the popping noise? is it during stitching as a blunt needle will definitely make a popping or squeaking sound. To get into your AE TSP, unplug from the power, then there are two screws on the top cover holding it down that need to be removed. You can then juggle the top cover around the handle and move it to the back giving you access to the inside.

Getting into the right side behind the flywheel is a bit more difficult and you need to be careful as there is an electronic panel there connected to the internals.

The TSP would be circa 1985-89; if it hasn't had a service in last five years, then maybe consider finding an Elna dealer and taking it in as if it is the electrical side panel, it should be repairable. If you are in USA, White Sewing Centre is the place to talk to, they carry many Swiss Elna spare parts still.

Have inherited my mom's elna Stella tsp air electronic. The foot control became harder to press, then stopped working. Elna want ZAR858 for a new part! Can I repair it?


Im confused, Stella TSP air electronic has a round black and white air foot with a black air line to the side of the machine like this.

or the earlier Lotus TSP has a electric foot and cable which is made of older style plastics, these are harder to find now but Sewingpartsonline.com carry an aftermarket one like this

No, not cheap parts but beautiful machines that with TLC work so well.

Need repair manual for elna tsp. or info to repair tension mechanism


I would suggest that you join the Yahoo newsgroup called "Elna Heirlooms" then check out their "Files", one of the members may have this item scanned there for members to refer to. If not, there are some really experienced members too who may be able to help you with information on how to do this repair. But you'll need to specify which TSP, Elna made a TSP in the Star Series, and Stella air electronic and the bill air electronics too. Your side panel will have the model 2 digit number so just include that when you ask for help on Yahoo.
