Elna 6005 - I need to move the tension dial to 9 to get an even stitch. I re-treaded the machine and bobbin and it is still the same. Any solutions?

it is common when threading a machine for the top thread to get behind the tension plates and not between them
this makes it bind up on the mount bolt and gives false tension settings
even threads also depend on the bottom thread tension which is adjustable by the tiny screw that holds the spring clip that you pass the thread under when you put the bobbin back in the case
try going google --type in-- workshop manual for elna 6005 --and see if there is a pdf version available,

Spoolcase assembly

Do I understand right, you unscrewed two screws on the bobbin case holder and lifted it out? Underneath is a black plastic ring (inner guard ring) which sits inside the lower guard metal outer. I guess you undid the bobbincase to clear under it, I have seen machines with a lump of lint under turned into felt from being left so long. While its out, clean the underside and under the inner guard ring with your little brush, chech the bobbin case holder side too, there is a little groove on the side and sometimes tiny bits of thread will be caught in it. The trick is to turn the flywheel until the lower guard cutout open bit is facing 6 on a clock dial, ie closest to you. Now look at the inner guard ring, it has a flat edge cut off, turn it so the cut out faces about 7 on the clock and centred in the outer guard. Now you need to insert the bobbin case, it has a piece with two "beaks" on it, this is the front and these beaks need to sit between two metal parts in front of the outer ring which holds the bobbin case firmly. Put the front part in place and the whole case will fit in perfectly, just give it a little wiggle if it doesnt quite line up. Tighten the two shinny silver screws to fasten in place. There is a little black screw too but dont touch this, its a fine tension adjustment. Hope this assists you, if not post again andI will try to find a photo of the assembly.

Went to sew on my elna 6005 machine made a growling noise and stated error1 do you know what this means? I have had the machine since it was new and never had this issue

I would suggest that you take off the needle plate and check if the bobbin holder, the black plastic bit you put the bobbin into, has become dislodged and moved out of alignment. This can happen if you have a jam up as the holder is held in place with a magnet.

Your manual should show how to remove and clean under it in the cleaning section and there is probably some thread in under it.

It should have a mark on it that needs to align with a mark on the stopper, on the right side I think, and you may find that yours have moved a little out of this alignment.

I'm hoping that this is the problem for you; as its easily solved. After you've put the holder back, just turn it off and wait a second, then switch on and hopefully it will reset. Also check the back of your manual, it should have troubleshooting at the rear which may give a diagnosis on the Error1 message.

I have an Elna 6005 that has started skipping stitches and the bobbin raises up and hits the plate, What can I do to fix.

Check two things:

1. Look at the bobbin and see if the thread is wrapped around it like it should be or if it looks jumbled, criss crossed or snagged in some place. Best thing to do is try a different bobbin and see if it sews correctly.

2. Check the needle and make sure it isn't bent or in wrong. Try a different needle.

If i'm understanding what you mean by raising up and hitting the plate it sounds like the bobbin thread is caught somewhere or the bobbin case is not inserted correctly. Take it out and put it back in again and feel for it to go into the right place and listen for a slight "click" as it goes in.
