    No, there are not any screw holes where you said. The bulb is up in the main part of the front and almost inaccesable.

If your SU is an Air Electronic then it is a little different. Firstly unplug the machine. Take your mini screwdriver that came in your kit and look at the top of the machine above the needle. There is a little hole there, put the screwdriver into the hole and push down on it, this lowers the bulb holder in the head of the machine down below the casing on a slant towards the back of the sewing bed, its spring loaded so you may need a second pair of hands to do it the first time.

Hold the screwdriver down, and grasp the bulb, push it up and twist anticlockwise to undo the bayonet fitting. Push down and repeat the process to insert the new bulb, turning clockwise to insert it into the bayonet fitting. Release the screwdriver and it will retract back into position.

    I seem to have this one and after pushing it down I still couldn't get the bulb to twist in. Maybe my bulb is too short? Where can I get a correct length one?

    Arnell, you need a longer bulb yes, code #444100, its a 15w bayonet. I bought 5 on line via Ebay ex USA last time i needed some here in Australia as they are expensive at my local Spotlight. But any Elna dealer should be able to sell you one, or are you in USA, if so try sewingpartsonline.com, $5.99

How to change lightbulb in Air Electronic SU TSP Jubilee 500 and Carinas


If you own an Elna Air Electronic and blow a lightbulb then here is the instructions to change it. The lightbulb will be a bayonet fitting 15w but maybe remove old one first to make sure you get the right length bulb at the shop.

Firstly unplug the machine. Take your mini screwdriver that came in your kit and look at the top of the machine above the needle. There is a little hole there, put the screwdriver into the hole and push down on it, this lowers the bulb holder in the head of the machine down below the casing on a slant towards the back of the sewing bed, its spring loaded so you may need a second pair of hands to do it the first time.

Push down and repeat the process to insert the new bulb, turning clockwise to insert it into the bayonet fitting. Release the screwdriver and the bulb holder will retract back into position.

If you have a Stella air electronic then it is very similar except for the location where you need to push. On the Stella look at the rear of the machine head above the bobbin cover and you will see a little slide mounted right at the end of the rear casing. Same thing but for these, put the screwdriver across the top of the slide horizontally, then push down on it to lower the bulb mounting.

That's it! Happy sewing.

I have an Elna 6003Q sewing machine. My light bulb went out and I need to replace it. How do you get it out and replace it?


some call it a lamp cover door or face plate it's on the left side of the sewing machine
some sewing machines have a hinge at the back of the face plate, you can gently pull it open to change the bulb
some machines -in the middle of the face plate there is a plastic plug, use a screw driver to gently lift the plug & then unscrew the screw & change the bulb.put the face plate back on put the srew back in & put the plug back in to concile the screw

I need to replace the light bulb on my Elna SU 62C sewing machine and I am not sure how to remove it. Has been in the machine since I purchased it in the early 70s.


Switch power off first. On the top left hand side of the machine towards the front is a small hole. Insert small screwdriver in hole and push down. The light bulb will appear underneath just to the left of the presser foot. Whilst holding down the screwdriver firmly, turn bulb anti-clockwise pushing slightly upwards at the same time. Bulb should dislodge.

Burned out bulb.


Generally on an Elna there's a little hole on the very top of the sewing machine directly above the bulb.
Pushing a long, skinny stick (like a screwdriver,) down into this hole will push the lightbulb and socket assembly down to where you can actually access the bulb without having to try to skvoosh your fingers into the tiny space.
