Cannot get top thread to catch and uplift bobbin thread, have changed bottom bobbin; think this may be shuttle problem. Need to get machine in to Polokwane in Limpopo Province to a repair center, cannot find a contact number of Elna there. Can you assist?

This is going to sound silly but its one of the first things I check for... make sure that the needle is in correctly make sure that the flat side is towards the back as you place it in the needle clamp. better yet take the needled out all together and put a new one in just to be sure that it isnt bend

There are a few easy and free things to check:
1- try a new needle 2- check that the needle is inserted the right way (one side has a long slot, usually this goes toward the back of the machine) 3- flip the bobbin over 4- clean any stray threads/fluff in the bobbin area
Another possibility is that the machine's timing is off- the bobbin thread isn't in place to be picked up at the right time- and that would need to be fixed by a sewing machine mechanic. But if this started suddenly, and not after hitting a pin or otherwise jarring the machine, then it probably can be solved with one of the easy/free solutions above. Good luck!

Have you removed the bobbin case to clean it? If so, it probably needs to be reseated. Remove the bobbin. Take out the case and reinsert it. If you can't get the bobbin out easily, there is probably thread clotted up somewhere under the feed dogs. I usually gently rock the handwheel back and forth as I brush the bobbin case area to begin dislodging the "clot." It also helps to remove the throat plate so you have a better view of the mechanics under the feed dogs. You'd be surprised at all the goop that can be caught but you can't see. If you do find a thread clot, use a machine brush and tweezer to gently remove each thread bit. I really hope this helps you. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice. Thanks!
