There is one small metal piece 3/4 inch long and shaped like the letter "T" that fits under the right hand needle plate snap one screw. Attach to underneath square nut and can be seen sticking out from the top holding the bobbincase in place after the top plate is replaced and everything is back together. If this is not it, a picture would help as I have repair 100's of Elna 5000 to 9000's.

Should there be thread like packing that goes around the bobbin shaft[ the metal bar that goes under the bed of the machine ] ? Elna 7100

The only thread that should be under the bed of the machine should be on the bobbin itself and the thread tail that extends beyond the bobbin. If thread is wrapped somewhere else, that needs to be eliminated and the machine cleaned of all debris.

I have an Elna 6005 that has started skipping stitches and the bobbin raises up and hits the plate, What can I do to fix.

Check two things:

1. Look at the bobbin and see if the thread is wrapped around it like it should be or if it looks jumbled, criss crossed or snagged in some place. Best thing to do is try a different bobbin and see if it sews correctly.

2. Check the needle and make sure it isn't bent or in wrong. Try a different needle.

If i'm understanding what you mean by raising up and hitting the plate it sounds like the bobbin thread is caught somewhere or the bobbin case is not inserted correctly. Take it out and put it back in again and feel for it to go into the right place and listen for a slight "click" as it goes in.

Thread getting caught underneath

you need to replace your shukle that holds the tread bobbing is either slack or broken . if it is slack then you tighten the little screw that holds a cover that gives the thread tension .if its broken then replace it.once the thread is slack below it will cause your thread to bundle up.
