I wonder if anyone can help me. The needle position wheel on my old Elna SP won't budge. I keep the machine well oiled (although none of the areas which are highlighted to be oiled are close to the needle position wheel). Many thanks for any ideas or thought.

Is the bobbin winder off?

Good point. I am not geographically at the same place as the sewing machine so I cannot check. I made some buttonholes without moving the needle position so I guess the bobbin winder wasn't in position, but it is only a guess.

I am writing this from Switzerland where it is night, so I will check this in the morning again, if anyone might have something to add. Much appreciated.
