You can import BIP39 seeds into electrum, but while importing you will have to press "Extras" and tick BIP39 from there because by default electrum is not using it.



It should work just fine like that, if not then let us know!

Which wallet you generated these seeds with?

Are you sure you're typing them correctly?
The correct syntax is to type them all in small letters with only a space separating each word. No commas, no nothing.

Can you find the words in the BIP 39 word list?

Don't.
It's a bad security practice.
What wallet did you create them on?
What error does Ian Coleman's BIP39 tool give you exactly?

According to the BIP 39 standard, seeds need to be a fixed length of entropy: 128, 160, 192, 224 or 256 bits. That's 12, 15, 18, 21 & 24 words respectively.
So either your seed phrase isn't complete, or it isn't a BIP 39 seed at all.
Your seed needs to be at least 12 words.

"Invalid mnemonic" means that either the words are incomplete, are in the wrong order (the order matters, the last word is a checksum), or one or more of the words isn't in the BIP 39 word list.

You still haven't said what wallet created the seed phrase.

If you know some address(es) that should be generated by these seeds, you could possibly use the "seedrecover" part of btcrecover to identify errors in the seed: https://github.com/gurnec/btcrecover/blob/master/docs/Seedrecover_Quick_Start_Guide.md

However, if you have no idea what address(es) should be generated by these seeds, it will be incredibly difficult to work out what is wrong with them.

If these "seeds" are being rejected by the IanColeman BIP39 tool, then they are NOT valid BIP39 seeds and are not likely to be valid in ANY wallet. If you don't know what wallet created them, where did you get these seeds from exactly? Huh
