Some call it a lamp cover door or face plate it's on the left side of the sewing machine
some sewing machines have a hinge at the back of the face plate, you can gently pull it open to change the bulb
some machines -in the middle of the face plate there is a plastic plug, use a screw driver to gently lift the plug & then unscrew the screw & change the bulb.put the face plate back on put the srew back in & put the plug back in to concile the screw

Do I need to oil an Elna 6003Q sewing machine?

Yes, in the middle of the bobbin case there may be a little hole with a wick below it where a drop of oil can be placed. Much of the internals are now self lubricating or designed for the tech to libe during the recommended annual service

Burned out bulb.

Generally on an Elna there's a little hole on the very top of the sewing machine directly above the bulb.
Pushing a long, skinny stick (like a screwdriver,) down into this hole will push the lightbulb and socket assembly down to where you can actually access the bulb without having to try to skvoosh your fingers into the tiny space.

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.

Elna 6003

I had the same problem and was sewing for quite awhile without my light working. Finally, a friend of mine was over and we did get it replaced. I believe there are a couple of plastic tabs behind the machine, and we pried them off and there was a screw behind them, (I can't remember if there was one or two plastic tabs) when we unscrewed them that popped off the cover and I was able to replace the bulb. I hope that helps, and when I go home I will check it again to see if I missed anything. Good Luck!!
