This is usually what happens if the bobbin case gets dislodged, its just held in place by a magnet but if you have a jam up, often gets moved out of position. Remove top metal plate, take out bobbin, and have a look at the bobbin case, should be two metal markers or red dotsmfront side that align. Lift the case out by grasping edge and lifting up and towards you, clean underneath with the little brush, remove any jammed up threads, then return case to position, aligning the marks.

    My Elna did the same. I took it to Elna and they replaced the motor for R1591. Now it is working like the day I bought it!! Rina

Probably best to take it for service. It has stopped due to a safety issue that could be dangerous to you or the machine.

How do I fix this problem on Elna 6003 which stops working after about 1 min and the computer say stopped for safety.


Hi Gary, I'm Julie. It sounds as though your motor is heating up and then cutting out. Something to try. Clean the machine following the instructions in the user manual. Ensure that the bobbin area is clean. If the motor continues to cut out take your machine to a service centre. One or more parts may need replacing.
Good luck. Kind regards, Julie

I have a Elna 6003. Recently I started having problems with the stitches skipping, and the machine was making a clicking sound. Now I have discovered that the needle is hitting inside the bobbin case and I...


skipping stitches can be the needle is damaged--flat side of needle goes to the back side of machine
normally when the needle is hitting the inside of the bobbin the timing is usually off, & can only be fixed by a sewing machine repair tech

My elna 6005 keeps on stopping ande I get the message stop for safety purposes. I have just had my machine serviced and I really don't know what to do.


Something is not quite right. Double check everything...loose needle, plug ins, threading, bobbin area for loose threads, etc.

Keep in mind that you've jostled the machine moving it from the service to your home. It could be as simple as the bobbin race being out of alignment. If nothing you do works... take it back and give the the person who serviced it the "look." and make him/her fix it.

Needle Change on the Elna 6003


1 - Loosen the knurled thumb screw on the right side of the needle clamp.

2 - The old needle wil probably fall out, if not you can simply pull it straight down to remove it.

3 - Slide a new needle up into the needle clamp.

4 - Tighten the knurled thumb screw on the right side of the needle clamp with your right hand while holding the needle up with your right hand.

Elna 6003 just stopped working


Something caught inside the machine and jammed the mechanism. It blew a fuse to protect the circuit board. A competent Elna or Janome Dealer should be able to get you machine going in no time.I don't know of any reason to have trouble finding parts for this machine.
