Question about Elna 1010

1 Answer

Re: Elna 1010 sewing machine opening the upper left door

There's a button on the upper left end of the machine, but the door (which covers the light) will not budge. I need to clean and oil.
Is there a way to get the door to swing open?

It is a cover, not a door, which is why it will not swing open. To remove it,there is a small round plastic screwhole cover which must be removed with a small, thin screwdriver or a fingernail. Once it is out ,you may remove the screw which is holding it on.

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 have a ELNA model 1010 and there seems to be no tension when do a test strip it bloobs up


Try re-threading the machine with the presser foot up.

This opens the tension and allows the thread to "seat".

Thread with the presser foot down and the tension is closed and the thread cannot seat.
