Elna Quilter's Dream 6003Q - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

Hm, wondering if it could be the presser foot pressure setting. Most machines have this capability where the amount of pressure applied to the feed dogs can be increased or decreased. You might check your owner's manual,.

If you have the owner's manual, it is supposedly called a "Reverse Key."

Look for a button near the needle with an arrow pointing backward.

Repair manuals are difficult to find as they were issued only to repair service personnel. Sometimes you can find a used manual for sale or uploaded, but it is very rare. However, sometimes if you search for the:

Make + Model + the words "parts diagram"

you may find a picture of the parts and what order they are placed in the machine.

The owner's manual should have instructions how to replace the bulb, but sometimes that information is not provided. However, this link may be helpful:

I would suggest that you don't use this thread, it is too fine for the tension device on a domestic sewing machine, and they just don't like it. Too strong, too fine. Its best used in industrial blind hemming machines, if you look at RTW trouser hems you'll often see monofilament utilised here.

Wow, that's getting to be a very old model now. Being 220 Volts tells me you are not in USA. Have you tried the Elna office in your country first? start with www.Elna.com and choose your country to locate the head office and give them a call. If the parts are still available, they should know.

Yes, in the middle of the bobbin case there may be a little hole with a wick below it where a drop of oil can be placed. Much of the internals are now self lubricating or designed for the tech to libe during the recommended annual service

The possible options are a bind in the machine. Check if it turns as easy as when it was new with the hand wheel. If that is not the problem it could be a motor problem. The most likely problem is the foot control. You can test the foot control by bypassing it with a jumper. You may need an expert to test it. Have a great day.

Using a straight stitch needle plate helps a lot. The end of the fabric doesn't get drawn down into the zig zag needle hole. The needle plate will cost around $50 but for me it is worth it for accurate piecing.
