SOURCE: How do I insert the bobbin into an Elna Lotus

Elna bobbins have holes on the top, so wind the bobbin with the holes on the top too. The Lotus bobbin winder doesn't have a tension device, thread just goes through an eyelet. So, place your scissors curved handle on top of your thread spool as it unwinds the thread to ensure the thread then winds onto your bobbin evenly. Also watch the bobbin fill and give the thread a nudge with your finger tip to fill top and bottom as well as the middle part, you want it to wind evenly across the full width of the bobbin. When full, pop bobbin winder back to left, cut thread and pull off the bobbin.

Then place the bobbin into the bobbin holder with the holes on top, and pull the loose thread tail around anti clockwise into the tension device and gently "click" it into the tension spring with the tip of your finger while holding the bobbin still with your other index finger.

You will be able to tell if it is in tension if you then pull the thread and it doesn't come out of the tension spring. It should feel firm with resistance but still release thread to a gentle pull. tally_girl_6.jpg Now thread the top down to the needle and holding the end of the needle thread, hand wind the fly wheel towards you to lower the needle and pull up the bobbin thread. Close the bobbin cover.

Always hold the two thread tails at the back of the sewing area as you start stitching a seam until you have stitched at least 4 or 5 stitches to avoid thread jams.

Lotus is a lovely vintage machine - there is a user group on Yahoo Elna heirlooms where you can find lots of info and pictures shared by members.

Timing is not something I've ever tacked, always been happy to pass the machine to my fav SM guy and keep him working as I love my Elnas. You may find it easier to track down a SM technician experienced with Elnas to fit this part for you. Especially as they are small compact machines and having the right tools can be very helpful. Also he'd be able to tell you if some of the other parts are also ageing and should be replaced at the same time.

If you are in the US you could visit www.whitesewingcenter.com and check out some of the information there, you will find it helpfull and he also hires tools to make some repair tasks easier.

And finally, there are some service manuals available from www.arizonaexpressionz.com - not for this model but you may be able to get some help from the Stella ones, they are the models after the Lotus. The manuals will assume that you are a trained technician though but should give you some pointers.

Good luck with your Lotus.

Machine running reverse


Can you tell me which model Elna? Have you owned it for a long time, or is it a recent purchase? If it is an older machine, i.e. a little Lotus ZZ, or one of the Star Series, I suspect that your stitch knob has simply been turned the wrong way. I own a variety of Elnas, about 10 in total, so if you can be more specific about the machine, I may be able to give clear instructions.

My very old little elna lotus (not sure if zz or sp) has suddenly jammed solid with the needle down through a piece of material. I can't move the flywheel at tall and I can't free the materia


Try unscrewing the needle, and then pull up the plate, and sort outthe threads very carefully with a quikunpick. When starting to sew, have slightly longer threads, make sure they are behind the needle, and hold them in your left hand. Especially when sewing very fine fabric, start slowly until you are sure the threads are forming properly, then it's OK to speed up. Use your ears, if it doesn't sound right, stop immediately. If you are going to use fine slippery fabric, be sure to do a trial piece first, rather than muck up your project. Elna machines are lovely to use, I've had one for over 40 years, still in daily use. Oiled with one spot of oil each time I use it, fluff regularly cleaned from underneath with the little brush supplied.

The Hook Pinion Gear on my Elna Lotus ZZ is damaged. I have sourced a replacement. Im sure I can fit it myself but Is the timing of the machine something a novice can fix?

Finding a manual for elna lotus 1000


check out the site sewingmanuals.com and see if they have your manual there. it's not free, but for about $8-10 you can download the manual and have it within minutes....another site that i was able to find my manuals was in sewusa.com. try that way if you haven't figured out how to refill the bobbin.
