Drop in a full bobbin with the holes side upwards (I'm assuming this is a Swiss Elna sewing Machine horizontal bobbin design as you haven't given the model number).

Now, hold the thread tail with your right hand and pulll the thread clockwise towards you while holding the bobbin still with a finger from your left hand. Bring the thread tail around towards you until it goes into the little slot, then press downwards onto the thread tail close to the bobbin until you hear it click into the tension spring. Test by lifting the thread tail upwards, it should stay in tension and not come back out of the groove.

Now close the back slide cover over the bobbin leaving the bobbin thread tail visible out to the right.

Now manually turn the flywheel towards you while holding the top thread tail and take the needle down into the bobbin holder area and back to the top, pull the thread tail to bring the bobbin thread up to the top.

There is a threading up diagrams at www.sewusa.com http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams/Threading_Pages/Elna_Sewing_machine_threading/Elna_Supermatic_threading_diagram.htm
for the old Supermatic but the bobbin holder design is almost identical for all the subsequent models such as the SU, TSP, Supermatic or Air Electronics like the Stella, Carina or Jubilee, the above is the same for all.

My elna 7000 sewing machine does not want to wind the cotton


Not sure of the particular bobbin winding problem you are experiencing. However, frequently the bobbin winder "tire" becomes worn and needs to be replaced.

Elna sewing machine 7000 geting bobin won't go through the feed dog


sorry, not sure I understand your problem. can you elaborate?

Have you got the correct Elna bobbin for your machine? check your manual, it should have an image of the bobbin, the 7000 was one of the last Swiss made Elnas and although a computerised machine, it still tool the Elna metal bobbin with 7 holes on one side only. If you are using another bobbin in the shuttle, it may not function correctly.

if you can add some more info I will try to help you further.

Which bobbin number do I use for an Elna Supermatic sewing machine made during the period of time 1958-63?


You want the Swiss Elna bobbins, these are metal with holes on one side only and slightly dished. They may be imprinted with "Swiss made" on the core of the bobbin. Elna code number is 426000
Look like this.9_28_2011_10_53_09_pm.jpg
