SOURCE: bobbin case case keeps jamming

I am having somewhat the same problem with the exception that my needle did not break. I've cleaned and oil, but the bobbin case and projection positioned spring is not communicating to allow sewing to continue. The thread keeps jamming and the bobbin raises up the plate. So, what else am I to do?

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 had this problem when I first bought my machine. I took it in and they told me it was a recall problem. All the machines were having the same problem. They fixed it and I have not had the problem since. I bought mine at a Joanne fabrics. Hope this helps.

Where does the oil go in an Elna eXperience 450


Consult the owner's manual. As a computerized machine, it is important to oil ONLY as directed in the machine instructions. You may also contact an Elna dealer.

(FWIW, the only manuals for download I found were not free.) The instructions for the 320 and 520 do not specify oiling.

Thread from the bobbin is not getting looped


If the bobbin case rotates freely it is probable that the pinion gear is broken. Replace the gear, retime machine and voila it works again. Trouble is tough to find the gear anymore good luck it is a good machine and worth the effort

I broke a needle while sweng,now my needle hits my bobbin case on my 2030


it's very possible that when you broke the needle it caused the machine to go out of time & would have to be retimed at a sewing machine repair shop

I broke a needle and now it wont pick up bobbin tread


Hello

Make sure the needle is facing in the correct direction,stitches don't form, or skip badly when the needle is turned around.

Put the bobbin in the bobbin case (right way around) leaving a 2-3" tail.

Thread the top of the machine correctly, leaving a 3-4" tail after threading the needle.

make certain your bobbin in locked into position in it's case and the thread is coming from the bobbin in the correct direction. When holding my metal bobbin in my hand, the thread pulls counter clockwise before placing it into my front loading bobbin case.

Also check if the needle is not properly installed in the needle bar,the machine is not threaded properly or the machine needs adjustment or repair..

I disconnect de chain that moves the upper mechanism and the lower, what i must to do to synchronized both mechanisms to reinstall the chain on Elna SP Lotus?


That is the worse thing to do on a sewing machine. I don't think any repair requires the removal of this belt or chain. This is not where you adjust the machines timing.
Let's see if we can work on a solution:
First you have to put the eye of the needle and the thread pick up hook on the bobbin within a few millimeters of each other. Reattach the belt/chain. Slowly rotate the machine and make sure nothing binds up. Now to double check the timing, the hook on the bobbin should pass the needle just as the needle begins it's upward journey. If the bobbin hook and the needle are not next to each other remove the belt/chain and realign them again... until you get it right.

Good Luck!

Makes too much noise


Check that your needle is fully up into the needle housing, and is in flat shank to the back.

Also change the needle if it has been in the machine for more than 6 hours of sewing as the needle will go blunt and this can make squeaking or popping sounds as you stitch.

Lastly, are you sure that the bobbin case is in correctly and hasn't been put in incorrectly. It should have a stitch finger which locks up into the top of the rotary hook if its a vertical bobbin case and bobbin design which I'm pretty sure your machine is.

Needle hits the white plastic where the bobbin case sits.


It may be as simple as you didnt get the needle pushed all the way up in the needle bar. Get new package of needles and try a new needle and make *sure* it goes up as far as you can push it. the reason I suggest a new pkg of needles is if one is bad in the pkg, they are probably all bad. If that doesnt fix it then the needle bar timing/height is off and need to be repaired/adjusted by a tech.
