Elna model 62 Super oily

I want to know if it is possible to fix it. The previous owner said that the motor just stopped working. When I got it home, I noticed a lot of oil had leaked out of the machine into the case.
Soooo, anybody know anything about servicing the motor to this machine?
thanks

The oil hasn't leaked out of the machine - 45 years of oil has accumulated in the bottom - clean it up. If the machine turns-by-hand OK - not jammed - I would first check the cord and cord connectors and foot switch. The 1960s power cords tend to become fragile after 45 years You will need a multi-meter and some electrical knowledge / experience. If you do some google searches and/or join the Elna Heirloom Yahoo Group you can get advice, Manuals, schematics, etc.

I believe that you can read all the old topics - - without joining - but need to join to post. Good luck - these are decent machines and are usually worth the time & effort to resurect. John T.
