How to replace the Bobbin Extractor on an Elna Sewing Machine:
- Unscrew and remove the top cover of your machine.
- Remove old plastic extractor from the bobbin extractor spring.
- Locate the screw on the top o the machine that holds the bobbin extractor spring in place and pull it up.
- Unscrew the screw from the spring and set the screw aside.
- thread a piece of thread down through the extractor hole. (Mechanic’s tip: Thread a needle and then drop the needle down the extractor hole. This will use the weight of the needle to pull the thread, making this step easier).
- Tie the bottom section of thread to the Bobbin Extractor Spring and gently pull the thread up
- after 1~2 cm of spring is exposed on the top of the machine, place a pin horizontal to the spring to hold it in place and screw the screw (from step 4) onto the top of the spring
- once screwed in, remove the pin and replace the top cover.
