The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

SOURCE: manual from brother listed sewing machine

I believe these are the UL code and serial number. If there is a display band of decorative stitches on the front of your machine look on the bottom right of that panel. If the number there is a VX-920 there is no manual available for it BUT you can use the manual from the VX 970 which IS available. Do a search for that model manual in Spanish and you should find one.

Where can I order a bobbin case for a Brother Charger 661

Hello, Nesta -

If you reside in the USA, this website carries and sells bobbin cases for a Brother Charger 661:

If you do not reside in the USA, I will need to know the name of the country where you reside in order to find a website from which you can order a bobbin case.

Also, you can locate a business near you which sells Brother brand sewing machine and ask if they carry the right bobbin case for your machine or if they can order one for you.

Best wishes.

Is it a good idea to buy a second-hande Elna sewing machine 6003 model?

besides being a old model, you also must think about getting
parts for the machine if that becomes neccessary.
and sometimes parts are hard to come by and some times there
are no parts.
it would be a better idea to get a newer model sewing machine, one
that is being sold by the elna agency in Africa, that way there
should be a better chance of getting parts.

Hi, I have an Elna Supermatic model 722010 and the upper tension spring has broken! I am in South Africa and need a solution to fix it. Is there any way I can make this thin wire apparatus? Thanks...

Hi Fiona,
Have you tried Elna in RSA - always worth asking the central head office for a brand first, they may be able to supply the part or direct you to a local Elna dealer who can supply and fit it.

If that isn't an option then you could try this website to source the part He is the old Swiss Elna specialist in USA and has a wide range of spares in stock. However, you'll need technical knowledge to fit it.

The other option is to join the Yahoo group called "Elna Heirlooms" and then ask the members there for assistance. They are usually pretty helpful to genuine Elna owners of these old Swiss machines.

However, I'd try to find an Elna dealer firstly, I recently purchased the screws for the bobbin case for the same model as you from a service person in NZ, he knew exactly what I wanted and was able to supply them. I found him on Trademe, their Ebay equivalent. The old Sewing Machine Guys are priceless.
