SOURCE: Sewing Machine Elna 6000 model

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?

SOURCE: Drawing up the lower thread

Check the needle to be sure it is installed with the flat side to the back of the sewing machine.

SOURCE: Needle will not pick up thread from bobbin on a Brother's machine

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!

Sewing Machine Problem 1 Thread Breakage

If the top thread is not picking up the bobbin thread, it's possible the machine has been knocked out of time. Did the needle hit something or break recently? You can search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

You should probably find an owners manual. Search for:

(however, Elna manuals are seldom free)

IMPORTANT TIPS:
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread! Install a brand new needle at least every 8 hrs of sewing or whenever it strikes something. AVOID old and bargain bin threads.

Elna Pro 4De serger thread breaking


Be sure to thread each in the ORDER specified--for most machines (but yours may differ) upper looper, lower looper, then needles. Follow (closely) the threading diagram on the machine. Missing one guide or hitting the guides out of order will throw you machine into a tizzy! On my serger, the lower looper has to lay over the top of the upper looper/thread before it all gets pulled under the presser foot toward the back of the machine.

It also may help to RAISE the presser foot when threading the machine.

My elna experience 660 is bunching threads in big loops on the back of the fabric and the needle bent and hit the needle plate. It's sounding clunky


Install a brand new needle.

Remove the top thread from the machine (ALWAYS cut the thread at the spool, raise the presser foot, and pull the thread down through the needle eye.)

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct.

If it still does not sew properly or sounds clunky, take it for service. It could have been knocked out of time or bent something.
