How to thread the bobbin on an Elna 3005. I have lost the instruction book. (Your category does not include sewing machines)


This are the instructions from Wiki for Elna 1500, which is a similar model:
" First, raise the presser foot lever and turn the flywheel towards you to raise the thread take-up lever to its highest point.
Next,, place your spool of thread on the horizontal post and hold in place with the spool cap. You know that little nick in the spool where you tuck your thread so the spool won't unravel? Make sure that nick is pointing to the right.
Now draw your thread to the left and "click" it into the little silver loop. A 1" oval thread guide sits to the left of that silver loop; draw your thread around the left of the thread guide.
Now you're going to loop your thread through the tension discs. You'll see two "cracks" in your machine. First run your thread DOWN through the RIGHT crack, then immediately UP through the LEFT crack.
At the top of the LEFT crack is your silver thread take-up lever. This is probably the trickiest part of threading your machine because the lever is always kind of inside the machine. But you can do it! Pass your thread from RIGHT to LEFT through the back of the loop at the top of the silver lever.
Whew! We're almost there.
Now draw your thread right back down the same crack you pulled it up before. You now have two stationary guides above your needle. Pass it through the thick silver guide and then through the thin silver guide. Both of these moves are kind of a left-to-right motion.
Now thread your needle from FRONT to BACK.
You're done -- well, except for the bobbin.
Hold your bobbin spool above the bobbin case so that it looks like a letter "P" Draw the bobblin thread from RIGHT to LEFT through the small crack in the silver part of the bobbin case, then pull the thread straight toward the back of the machine.
Now turn your flywheel one revolution toward you so that your upper thread picks up the bobbin thread. Now close your bobbin cover, and SEW!
Congratulations! You did it!

I have an Electrolux Model G. I have to take the


Wow an old but a goody.Electrolux rewinds of this age are like land mines. Be very cautious.
The G is similar to its cousin the model 89. In the 89 a service tech would remove the housing cover with the cord spool held secure and stationary stationary and the housing laying flat. Sometimes a clothes pin or small clamp on the outside of the cord housing.....
Once inside there would be a spool with the cord would on and that spool had both a flat metal spring half visible below the side of the spool and and an open center bearing race. Only half the spring would be exposed from above and a special clamp tool was used to reach in and clamp the spring before any parts were disturbed. You might get away with a set of long skinny needle nose pliers but you must not kink the spring by doing so. Then if removing the spool, you would invert the rewind over an ice cream pail to drop the loose bearings , or remove them with a magnetic screwdriver tip.
If your spring is damaged you will get one through Aerus Electrolux , originally Electrrolux US.
If your cord has given way and you are exceptionally careful, without removing the spool you can desolder the terminals on the bakelite spool inside, drill out the rivets holding the contact ring and shorten the cord . this is far easier than attempting to install a new cord .The next step would be to resolder the cord and re rivet the spool contact ring with a pop riveter and washers to secure the tabs cut out in the ring.
If you remove the entire cord you will have to clamp the spring so a snot to lose its unwound tension. This is VERY tricky. Best of luck . please post back to advise what happens.If you impatient, don't even consider this one, just find another G for parts and steal the rewind

I put one the first weight and locked it in i didn't know that you had to put all six and then lock it in. How do i take the one i put on off and start over


You should be able to take off the plates by turning them the opposite direction as putting them on. If you look at the plate you'll see the grooves that lock each one together. You just need to twist the plate you want off and twist it out of the grooves. Once out of the grooves it will turn back to normal, releasing the tension on the bands inside. You can then just slide it off the bar. The perm attached 5# plate tends to turn too. You need that one to be stationary. If you can't do it alone, have someone hold the perm 5# plate steady as you turn 'off' the additional plates.

Pulley system "off track" inside main frame of 2005 boflex revolution


I had same problem. I fixed it by taking plastic sides off using a long phillips head screwdriver. Jay, you don't have to take the sides off to fix your problem. The sides come off only to untangle and rewind cables on pulleys. Pull the cables all the way out. Have a helper pull out and keep holding out the tension knob This is shown at the bottom of page nine in the manual. With someone holding the tension knob out turn the large pully located beneith the tension knob CLOCKWISE! I screwed mine up by turning it counter-clockwise. This winds the handle to the top and if you start with all the cable pulled off the pully, the cable should then wind itself nicely back onto the pully. Once the handle is all the way up, with the round ball on the cable jammed up against the pully, then and only then let go of the tension knob and let it fall back into place. If the handle falls down a few inches repeat this proceedure but push lower pully a bit harder and try to turn tension knob, while it is pulled out, in the opposite direction and it will then click into place one notch tighter and should hold the black ball on the cable firmly against the pulley. Let me know if this was helpful.

Threading machine


The machine is relatively simple to thread. This is what I do and I've had no threading problems. 1. Put thread spool on the spool pin and put spool guard over spool pin to hold spool onto pin. 2. Take thread and put it under the bent tab by the circle tensioner. bring the thread around the right side of the circle tensioner and bring around the front of the circle tensioner thing back to the top hook on the far left side of the machine. 3. Take the thread around the backside of the top hook think until it threads through the flat piece on the left side of it. 4. Bring the thread down through the first (right side) channel and under the plastic piece to the second (left side) channel. 5. Bring the thread up the second channel and around the moving thread holder and past it's flat metal piece to hold it. 6. Tuck the thread around the small wire thread holder below the needle screw. This may take a few passes to catch it. 7. Thread the needle from the front and run the thread between the teeth of the presser foot. 8. Put a bobbin in the bobbin case so that the thread pulls off the bobbin from the left side of the bobbin if you look at it from above. 9. There is a small channel in the bobbin case that is covered by the bobbin tension flat piece. Pull the bobbin thread through this channel and into the empty space where the needle thread will catch. 10. Place the bobbin case into the machine with the little set bobbin arm pointed to the sky so that it fits into the machine without wiggling to the right or the left. 11. Turn the, uhhh brain fart, the hand wheel until the needle comes back up with the bobbin thread hooked over the needle thread. Take a narrow thing, like scissors or a seam ripper and pull both threads until the bobbin thread comes up. Now your machine is threaded. Use these directions with the pictures in the book to get this machine threaded.
