Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I live in Campbell, CA and just want to get my 1968 Elna Supert sewing machine repaired. The foot feed was accidentally partially depressed, causing the motor to be engaged but not run.. result the head was too hot to touch.. the rest of the machine appears to have no damage.. the motor wont run.. so I assume it is burned out.. maybe only the copper winding.. I would like advice as to where to take it..
