Question about Elna 2007 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Have you got the manual with it? It will tell you where/when to oil the machine but many newer ones have nylon gears and internal oiling wicks which get lubricated during a service. So if the manual says nothing about oiling, then I would just brush out the bobbin holder area and keep it clean.
Your bobbin issue is a bit confusing, does the bobbin wind when you follow the manual instructions to fill it? There is usually a spindle device that it will sit on, and an activation needed, either flicking the spindle against a stopper, and pressing a button. Or disengaging a clutch on the flywheel then using the foot control to drive it.
All of this should be in your manual and if this is the first time you have used it in four years, then I would say that you definitely need to refer to the manual to learn how to use this machine. If you don't have one, then its a really good idea to buy one. Just try www.Elna.com and go to your country to find contact details for them. There are several websites too that sell manuals and parts, www.sewusa.com, www.sewingpartsonline.com or on Ebay.
Sorry this is not more specific but I can't access a copy of the manual for this model. Saying that, if this was a new machine and you have a Elna dealer nearby, ring them and ask if they hold classes or if they could give you a quick 15 min refresher sometime too.
