Wind the Bobbin
For the usual jobs, it is the best to use a medium sized thread.
2. Disengage the flywheel by unscrewing the coupling knob as far as it will go.
3. Place the bobbin on the bobbin winder, and push the bobbin winder to the right.
4. Pull out one of the spool pins and place the spool of thread on it.
5. Pass the thread through the bobbin winder tension discs, as indicated.
6. Wind the end of the thread around the bobbin by hand, in the direction indicated.
7. Wind the bobbin, at a medium speed by pressing lightly with a finger on the spool so as to stretch the thread better and thus fill the bobbin to a maximum. The full bobbin stops automatically.
8. Re-engage the flywheel by tightening the coupling knob.
9. Cut the thread and remove the bobbin from the bobbin winder by pushing the latter to the left.

SOURCE: step motor error
I am working on a 6003Q right now with this exact problem. The shuddering sound is the stepper motor working, but hitting the movement limit stop. The reason it keeps trying to move is that the sensor has failed. In the case of the machine I am working on, it is the zig-zag stepper motor position sensor that has failed. Elna does not sell the sensor separately, it comes complete with stepper motor, mounting frame, and cable, which is a shame because it is approx. $70 dealer cost for the assembly. The sensor is nothing more than an LED as a "sender" with a corresponding "receiver". There is a blade on the stepper motor drive gear that passes between the two and breaks the beam signaling that the "home" position has been reached. Unfortunately, the sender-receiver pair are sealed in a plastic housing so they are not replaceable. The part number of the zig-zag stepper motor assembly is 395727-69.
Best of luck,

SOURCE: how do I raise the feeder feet
There is a slide switch on the underside of the back of the free-arm. The feed dogs will not immediately raise when you slide it, the machine must make a full rotation for it to engage.

Testimonial: "I am so pleased that I was able to get my manual and now know how much I can do with my machine. Keep up the good work. We all need to work together."
This is the only one I could find and it is $10.00 http://www.mcssl.com/SecureCart/ViewCart.aspx?mid=F506721D-3C9E-481E-8B3F-7E1C3114072F&sctoken=0465a6a54d8e482581a12d868a00a3fb&bhcp=1
The reason for the jam could be the fabric is thick and this causes the foot to raise to the point the the tension is open that the top thread is feeding erratically.
Another could be the bobbin area needs to be cleaned.
Lastly, it could be the timing needs to be adjusted and this means a trip to the sewing machine dealer for service.
