Question about Elna Quilter's Dream 6003Q

2 Answers

Elna 6003 just stopped working

I was winding a bobbin, the sewing machine made a straining noise and it stopped. The light won't go on and the machine will not work. Any guess as to what the problem could be? I'm thinking a new motor, fuse...? And with problems finding parts, sounds like I'm not going to be sewing with my Elna 6003 any time soon.

    I had the same problem. The machine was working great and then nothing. I took it to a dealer and they tried to fix it but couldn't find out what was wrong. After 3 months, they told me I should get a new machine. They said they could send it back to the factory at a cost of $250 and that was shipping and not fixing. I bought a new machine from someone else but I really miss my Elna 6300

    My Elna Quilter's Dream Pro also just stopped working. I had it less than a year so I knew repairs would be covered under my waranty. The dealer said her repair people could not get the right part for it since Elna is out of business. We waited another six months and no one would honor the waranty (which now expired) I was told I had a very important gear wear out! My machine was taken to two other repairmen in the area and they could not fix it...Do you know where else I can send it to get it repaired properly?

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.

My 6003 Elna machine stop and says stop for safety purposes How do I get it unlock from that It wont do anything


This is usually what happens if the bobbin case gets dislodged, its just held in place by a magnet but if you have a jam up, often gets moved out of position. Remove top metal plate, take out bobbin, and have a look at the bobbin case, should be two metal markers or red dotsmfront side that align. Lift the case out by grasping edge and lifting up and towards you, clean underneath with the little brush, remove any jammed up threads, then return case to position, aligning the marks.

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 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.

I need an elna bobbin case for the 6003 machine how much do these cost to send to london thanks geoandcurr@btinternet.com


Your Elna 6003 was made by Janome and has the same bobbin case as a Janome 4800. There are many Janome sewing machine dealers in London, one surely will stock the part.

Elna Primula 410 Bobbin Winding Question


Wind the Bobbin
For the usual jobs, it is the best to use a medium sized thread.
2. Disengage the flywheel by unscrewing the coupling knob as far as it will go.

3. Place the bobbin on the bobbin winder, and push the bobbin winder to the right.

4. Pull out one of the spool pins and place the spool of thread on it.

5. Pass the thread through the bobbin winder tension discs, as indicated.

6. Wind the end of the thread around the bobbin by hand, in the direction indicated.

7. Wind the bobbin, at a medium speed by pressing lightly with a finger on the spool so as to stretch the thread better and thus fill the bobbin to a maximum. The full bobbin stops automatically.

8. Re-engage the flywheel by tightening the coupling knob.

9. Cut the thread and remove the bobbin from the bobbin winder by pushing the latter to the left.
