    Do you mean that the rotary hook is not rotating around the bobbin holder as the machine goes through its stitch formation? If so, this could be a failed pinon cog down in the drive train within the free arm. Is this a lotus TSP or one of the bigger Star Series machines in a two part metal case?

Is the clutch disengaged to wind the bobbin? Is the needle going up and down okay?

If the needle is moving but the rotary hook is not rotating to catch the thread from the bobbin then it is likely that a gear has gone in the free arm area which drives the rotary hook.

If this is a star series TSP you may be able to remove the cover plate on the free arm area and view the shaft and gear in this area. Its just held down with a single screw near the needle plate.

If the pinon gear looks worn or split, then probably best job for a mechanic to replace this.

Elna lotus tsp


Go to the local fabric store (like JoAnn's) and pick up a standalone bobbin winder (Sidewinder) for $30. I use mine all the time--can wind multiple bobbins quickly without unthreading the machine and saves wear n tear on your machine.

I have an elna airelectronic tsp machine & cannot thread bobbin. Please help


Firstly, have you got an Elna metal bobbin? it should be solid on the bottom and have 7 holes on top. It is essential that you always use it this way, wind it with the holes on top and load it into the bobbin holder the same way.

Have a look at the image above, you need to load the bobbin in and click the thread into the tension spring so it doesn't lift back out when you pull the thread upwards. There should be an audible click as it goes in.

If you can't get it right or this image is just too small, feel free to email me and I'll send you the image and talk you through it, I have a TSP machine too. cwrogers@tpg.com.au.

Also, check my tip on bobbin winding here http://www.fixya.com/support/r10598580-winding_bobbin_correctly it is important to get a good even tension onto your bobbin as you wind the thread on, you may need to manually add some tension to the thread as it winds off the spool, as I've described in my tip. I sold these machines for Elna and customers would bring them in complaining of problems with their machine. Almost aways, it was the needle in backwards, bobbin upside down, thread/lint buildup in the bobbin race or badly wound bobbin that was the problem.

Hope this helps you Gaylene, but if not, please email, I may be able to send you the relevant manual pages.

How to thread bobbin on Elna SU


Please describe the type of bobbin you have. Is it held inside of a removable metal casing? Or is it a dropin type? Is the sewing machine what is known as a "freearm" which you can put a sleeve or trouserleg over or is it a flatbed type? When I know this I can help you further.(I used to sell sewing machines).
