Bought machine at a garage sale. It works but no Manuel of instructions. Need to know how to thread it.


If you can't download the manual, try putting the thread on the spool holder with the thread coming off the spool toward the back of the machine. Be sure your fly wheel is turned toward you until the need is in its highest position. With the end of the thread, work your way across the top of the machine to the left, staying toward the back of the machine, threading through any thread guides as you go. There may only be one. Bring the thread toward the front of the machine and through the thread guide at the top front of the machine, then down on the right side of the tension knob and back up to the needle carrier. Then pull the thread down through any thread guides until you get to the needle. Thread the needle and pull the tail of thread to the back of your machine. Load your bobbin into the bobbin case, insert the case into the machine until you hear a click (you may need to rotate the case slightly to get it into the machine.) turn your fly wheel toward you while holding that top thread toward the back of the machine until the bobbin thread comes up. Pull the bobbin thread up and to the back of the machine an you are ready to go! Good luck!

Makes one stitch then abrupt stop with threads bunching up from bottom


Have you taken the bobbin out and made sure there is nothing caught in the bobbin race area. Maybe even unscrew the plate and take the whole bobbin race assembly apart and clean well. Once that is done put back together then re thread machine. Next I would start by hand turning the machine and doing some stitches slowly with the fly wheel make sure to to forwards only never turn the fly wheel back wards. If everything seems clear give it some power slowly and see how it goes.

10000 janome jamming fly wheel won't turn


I would replace the needle anyway. It's hard to tell if one is bent or not.

Remove your feed dog/needle plate and the bobbin cover. Take out your bobbin and bobbin carrier.

Get out a magnifying glass and really examine. Look for thread ends in between moving parts.

Also check the thread pathways. Especially where the take up lever is hidden. I've heard of some ladies finding threads snarled up in that area which caused problems like this.

Good luck. If all else fails take it in for repair.

My elna sewing machine bobbin won't spin on top to wind thread around. The fly wheel spins though...I've been putting thread on the bobbins by hand.


If the fly wheel is going around then the clutch isn't disengaged to wind the bobbin, you need to pull out the flywheel on your model to disengage the clutch for bobbin winding.

Take thread from thread spool across to bobbin winder thread guide, then back to bobbin and thread the tail through the hole on top of the bobbin. Place bobbin onto spindle on top of machine and then push it against the stop to engage the bobbin winding motor. HOld the thread tail up and start winding slowly until the bobbin core has been covered including the starting point. Stop and trim off the thread tail with scissors. COntinue winding bobbin and give the thread a nudge if needed to wind evening top middle and bottom of the bobbin. A good smooth wind is important. Also don't wind at full speed and keep an eye on the thread reel that the thread is coming off, you don't want it bouncing around as this will **** the thread and stretch then relax it affecting your bobbin wind.

Obviously if you know this and the bobbin winding mechanisim is just not working, then it will need a service/replacement by an Elna repair person.

I am a beginner sewer, I just purchased the Emerald 203...I can't remember how to get the bobbins threaded, I looked in the manual, but it doesn't say how to thread it or how to thread a bobbin, which is...


The Husq Vik. machines have a raised white arrow that guides you in threading and winding bobbins. There are 2 ways to wind a bobbin. The one that I prefer is by threading the machine.

Begin by raising the needle to the highest position. This is done by turning the fly wheel towards you until the needle is at highest point.

Next, Place your spool of thread on the thread spool, with the thread coming over the top like a roll of toilet paper. Make sure you have a spool cap at each end of the spool. (your mannual will tell you what the parts are if you do not know what I am talking about).

Next, take your thread to the left, you should see a "track to follow". You will go left for a very short distance, then straight down (still following in the track), when you get to the bottom of the track, you make a "u-turn" up moving the thread to the take-up-lever. If you do not see the take-up-lever, you do not have the needle in it's highest position. Hook your thread around the take-up-lever from right to left.

Then follow the track down to the needle. You have a thread guide that hooks to the left just at the top of the needle - slip the thread in that guide by moving left to right. Thread the needle from front to back.

You should have it threaded now and ready to wind a bobbin. Simply take the thread under the presser foot and to the right - make sure the presser foot is raised. Also, always make sure to use a metal, not a plastic, foot when using this method.

Hold your bobbin with the writing side (crown on it) facing up. Wrap your thread around it clockwise about 4 times. Place bobbin on the bobbin winder. (top far right of machine close to fly wheel.) Make sure it is snapped down.

Push bobbin up to engage and lock. Slowly step on foot pedal. Bobbin should begin winding. Do not wind too full. Leave about 1/16 around to allow the bobbin to move freely in the bobbin case.

If you always keep the bobbin with the writing facing up, you will never have to worry about getting it wound the wrong way.

Hope this helps

The bobbin thread will not pick up. The machine had jammed and I forced the wheel and can't get bobbin thread to pick up. When I thread manually, I only get holes, no stitches. Is it a timing belt?


check your needle to see if it's bent---roll on flat surface to see if it roll correctly
on some sewing machines when the thread comes off the thread take up lever it can cause the machine to jam
also if the bobbin thread becomes tangled it can jam
check the bobbin area for lint or loose threads
try having a top thread tail & bobbin thread tail of 3-4 inches
try holding the top thread tail & turn the handwheel on the right side on the machine manually & put the needle down into the bobbin area & see if the bobbin thread will pick up that way

How do I insert the bobbin into an Elna Lotus sewing machine (the old Lotus with flip sides)


Elna bobbins have holes on the top, so wind the bobbin with the holes on the top too. The Lotus bobbin winder doesn't have a tension device, thread just goes through an eyelet. So, place your scissors curved handle on top of your thread spool as it unwinds the thread to ensure the thread then winds onto your bobbin evenly. Also watch the bobbin fill and give the thread a nudge with your finger tip to fill top and bottom as well as the middle part, you want it to wind evenly across the full width of the bobbin. When full, pop bobbin winder back to left, cut thread and pull off the bobbin.

Then place the bobbin into the bobbin holder with the holes on top, and pull the loose thread tail around anti clockwise into the tension device and gently "click" it into the tension spring with the tip of your finger while holding the bobbin still with your other index finger.

You will be able to tell if it is in tension if you then pull the thread and it doesn't come out of the tension spring. It should feel firm with resistance but still release thread to a gentle pull. tally_girl_6.jpg Now thread the top down to the needle and holding the end of the needle thread, hand wind the fly wheel towards you to lower the needle and pull up the bobbin thread. Close the bobbin cover.

Always hold the two thread tails at the back of the sewing area as you start stitching a seam until you have stitched at least 4 or 5 stitches to avoid thread jams.

Lotus is a lovely vintage machine - there is a user group on Yahoo Elna heirlooms where you can find lots of info and pictures shared by members.

Bottom tread keeps jamming and getting all knoted up. The display gives me an E6 error code. what can i do


try re-threading your machine. usually when the machine is jammed at the bobbin or when the needle gets stuck to the bobbin thread, it means that there is an error with the thread. make sure that the thread isn't pulled through the wrong side of the needle, wrapped the wrong way around the wheels on the top, and that the bobbin is threaded correctly. if this doesn't work, you may want to contact their hotline.

Thread jams & wheel axel cannot turn


there are a couple of things that come to mind.  
Bobbin:   wound with uneven tension.  Try taking the bobbin, rewind that thread onto another bobbin and wind slowly.  make sure the thread feeds onto the new bobbin evenly.
upper thread:  catching on something or not flowing off the spool easily.
you're doing well, sounds like you consulted the manual and used your noggin, hang in there and let me know if this doesn't help.  we can troubleshoot some more!
