I bought an elna diva used and in great comdition several years ago. I really hadnt used it much. It was more than I needed.

It has been sitting covered in my closet for about six years. Can i use it now without first getting it serviced

I have tbe cartidges and feet and manual but it is so much more than I need

Six years is a long time for a machine to sit without use or oiling. I would highly recommend that it be serviced.

Guessing $70 and up. Call the dealer and ask in advance.
