Question about Elna Quilter's Dream 6003Q

1 Answer

Elna 6003 quilters dream isn't sewing properly. It makes one stitch and then jams around the bobbin and presser foot area. I wish someone would post a free copy of the instruction manual because I can't find mine and really can't afford to buy one.

This is the only one I could find and it is $10.00 http://www.mcssl.com/SecureCart/ViewCart.aspx?mid=F506721D-3C9E-481E-8B3F-7E1C3114072F&sctoken=0465a6a54d8e482581a12d868a00a3fb&bhcp=1

The reason for the jam could be the fabric is thick and this causes the foot to raise to the point the the tension is open that the top thread is feeding erratically.

Another could be the bobbin area needs to be cleaned.

Lastly, it could be the timing needs to be adjusted and this means a trip to the sewing machine dealer for service.

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.

When the machine starts the bobbin shifts, instead of stitching it jams. I have tried to replace it but I don't seem to be having any luck. Elna 6003 quilters dream


Sounds like the bobbin case has shifted inside the rotary hook area. Have you got the manual? if so, does it give directions to remove the bobbin case as part of the cleaning instructions? If you have never taken it out, perhaps take pics with your digital camera to help you put it back in correctly. It is held in by a magnet underneath it. Remove the needle plate, pressure foot and needle, and the bobbin.

Have a good look at the bobbin case, it should have a stopper which sits against a little bump and might have two red marks to line up correctly. Are these lining up or has it shifted a little. If so, then lift out the bobbin case by holding the edge closest to you and lifting it upwards and towards you. Brush the underneath area out carefully to remove any lint or thread bits with your little brush bringing the lint out of the area and into a bin (dont push it around into the area under the rotary hook) and don't blow it out with air. Have a good look at the bobbin case too and check it for any damage, if you dislodge it while stitching the needle can strike it and as its plastic there may be little marks or bits of plastic now, if so, give them a gentle rub with fine grade sandpaper (away from the machine works) or a nail file to smooth off. I found that mine had a couple of holes and the thread was then catching on the rough edge of plastic and jamming constantly. I actually bought a new bobbin case after 3 goes to sort this out.

Now put the bobbin case back into place, lining up the red marks if it has them. Manually turn the flywheel towards you through a stitch sequence, the holder should sit still while the hook goes around it.

Reassemble the machine, rethread and test sew. I hope this helps, if you have tried all this already, then perhaps take it to your Elna dealer for further investigation/service.

Elna 6003 just stopped working


Something caught inside the machine and jammed the mechanism. It blew a fuse to protect the circuit board. A competent Elna or Janome Dealer should be able to get you machine going in no time.I don't know of any reason to have trouble finding parts for this machine.
