Question about Elna Heirloom Edition 6005
Inherited my mother-in-law's old Elna 410 sewing machine, without a manual. Nice machine, sews like a dream, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to make it wind the thread on the bobbin. On my newer Brother machine, simply sliding the bobbin knob to the right so it is near the stopping peg is all it takes to put the machine in bobbin-winding mode, but on the Elna this apparently doesn't do it. I have tried everything I can think of, but I can't make it go into winding mode. Help!
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.

Just fixed my moms. Take the top cover off, remove the arm, careful of the tension spring. clean the shaft hub. spin till you free it up then use a extra light oil and reassemble. Works great!
