    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.

How do I open my face cover and change the bulb?


Look for the hinge. It should open out one way or another. You might also look for screws. You may have to take screws out to open it. You are correct, prying is a mistake.

Change a light bulb in Bernina 1008 sewing machinge


If you still have original Acessories there should have been a grey or brown cone shaped rubber gripper that could be slid up on bulb to assist in turning it If not remove the side cover, then back cover to access the bulb. Some 1008's have push in bulb others screw in so be careful not to break bulb as you remove it
push in bulbs must be pushe in and rotated 45 degrees counter clockwise to remove. Of course screw in bulbs just rotated counter clockwise to remove

Re-timing up


I would purchase the service manual for your machine. It shows you how to time it. I just checked Sewing Parts Online, who sells service manuals for a nominal price and while they don't have it listed, typically if you call or send them an email they can get it for you in a reasonable amount of time.
