SOURCE: Elna 6003Q Sewing Machine won't snap out of bobbin winding mode

I had the same problem and fixed it myself. Remove the portion of the housing that coincides with the bobbin winder. You will need to remove two screws to do this--one is just to the upper left of the bobbin winder itself, and one is hidden under the handle on the left side of the machine (lift the handle, and look on the machine on the left side.) It takes some coaxing to remove the housing, but it can be done--be gentle. If you need to, remove the housing on the left side of the machine that covers the needle assembly. This will make it a bit easier, but still, be gentle.)
After removing the housing, you will see a black metal piece with a elongated slot and a screw adjacent to the bobbin winder mechanism. Unscrew the screw a turn or two, and slide the piece to the other side. Tighten gently. Turn your machine on, and move your bobbin winder back and forth and watch the screen change from bobbin winding to the main straight stitch screen. Now, do a brief Dance of Joy. I hope this helps.

I have a Mega Quilter and would like to stop the needle from working up and down when I wind my bobbins. Do I do this in the menu of the read out?


Most machines with a bobbin winder on them have a round knob inside of the machines flywheel. That's the wheel that turns when you sew.
TURN the inside knob forward or reverse to lock or unlock the main gears from turning the needle bar in the sewing motion.

Easy

After a stitch or two the fabric gets pulled down to the bobbin. There's something wrong with the bobbin thread, but I can't figure it out. I used the manual to re-thread everything, but nothing seems to...


If the machine is pulling the fabric down first check there are no burrs on the point of the needle then check the needle plate to make sure it is not slightly bent down

I have a Elna 6003. Recently I started having problems with the stitches skipping, and the machine was making a clicking sound. Now I have discovered that the needle is hitting inside the bobbin case and I...


skipping stitches can be the needle is damaged--flat side of needle goes to the back side of machine
normally when the needle is hitting the inside of the bobbin the timing is usually off, & can only be fixed by a sewing machine repair tech

I have the Elna 6003 quilter's dream machine. The problem is that it is stuck in the "bobbin winding" mode and will not allow me to change stitches. I have tried turning it off and turning it...


Does this have a bobbin winder post and stop at the top right. If so, is the bobbin winding post moved back to normal position or up against the post?

Being computerised, if you have tried powering it down and all the settings are correct, then it might want a trip in the car to see the technician to sort out this fault.

I have the Elna 6600 series Quilters Dream . I broke a needle because I had the incorrect foot on. When it "hit" the "Turn off for Safety Purposes" message came on.... then E2 . I...


Does your manual have a troble shooting section at the back and if so, what does it indicate for the E2 message?

Have you replaced the foot with the correct one and gone back to a straight stitch setting?

I'd turn it off, remove the needle plate and bobbin, clean everything out, check that there isn't a broken bit of needle anywhere, then reset everything up, turn it back on and try again with the standard foot.

Elna 6003Q Will not snap out of Bobbin Winding Mode


I gently took a screwdriver and press the plastic base of the bobbin spindle to the left, I guess that the spindle base was not making a good connection, so the computer could not tell if it was still in that mode.  It worked for me. thank-you for your other insights to this problem.

Electrical problem?


Neither the needle up/down or the LED for the stitch selector will work if the bobbin winding pin/holder is pushed to the right (meaning pushed into the winding position). If you accidentally left the winding pin/holder pushed over, you will lose the functions of both the LEAD and the needle up/down button! (Neither of these functions can work while in bobbin winding mode!)
