Need the light bulb for the 6005 Elna. I've had this machine for many years and its been a real work horse, but now the light bulb has gone out in it.


Looking here, it looks like a capless bulb like in cars.

In fact it is, a 12 volt 5 watt capless auto bulb

What light bulb fits 4300 Morse sewing machine


The Morse 4300 and 4400 use the same small 15W screw in light bulb as many other sewing machines. This is one vendor: https://a1sewingmachine.com/LB716sm~Bulb%2C+15+Watt+Small+screw+in+base.htm . Another source is https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/light-bulb-white-7scw.aspx .

I hope this helps. However, if you have a bulb in the sewing machine, take it out and confirm that it is the screw in type. (If there is no bulb, look at the socket for some turns for threading in a bulb.) If the bulb or socket doesn't have threads, then look for a 15W push and twist bulb at sewing machine parts suppliers.

Quantum cxl. Why doesn't replacement lamp work?


Or it could be the incorrect bulb for the machine or if purchased from a secondary market, ie China, etc. I've purchased a replacement bulb from eBay and even though it was guaranteed to work in the machine, there is a lip on the bulb that prevents it from being inserted completely into the machine. Might be best to purchase an authentic replacement bulb from a dealer.

How do I replace light bulbs in a Bernina sewing machine model 1080?


Check the bulb model number old versus new and make sure you have the same number bulb. The bulb number should be on the base of the bulb somewhere. If the bulb has tabs sticking out of the base, check to see that they are placed such that both tabs are on the same plane on the bulb base. Some bulbs have offset tabs that only go in one way to the socket. Try rotating the bulb 180 degrees and insert it again to the socket before trying to rotate it. Check your manual for bulb replacement procedure. Make sure also that you didn't rotate the glass bulb out of its base when you pulled the old one out, leaving the old base still stuck in the bulb socket. If this is the case, unplug the machine and use needle-nose pliers to remove the old bulb base before trying to replace the bulb.

Change a light bulb in Bernina 1008 sewing machinge


If you still have original Acessories there should have been a grey or brown cone shaped rubber gripper that could be slid up on bulb to assist in turning it If not remove the side cover, then back cover to access the bulb. Some 1008's have push in bulb others screw in so be careful not to break bulb as you remove it
push in bulbs must be pushe in and rotated 45 degrees counter clockwise to remove. Of course screw in bulbs just rotated counter clockwise to remove

Light bulb keeps blowing


The light from a light bulb is caused by the metal filament being white hot, over 1000 degrees Centigrade, so touching hot isn't too much in those circumstances! However there may be a ventilation problem in the bulb area but our machines are just the same in the bulb area. A bulb that has gone black has had an air leak into the glass envelope and this it may well be a just poor quality bulb.
Are you getting the correct bulb? Some shops will supply one for a normal light which has a weaker construction and is not suited to vibration and working in an enclosed area. If you (or the shop) use a bulb with a higher wattage than specified with the good intention of supplying a better light it could also be supplying more heat....
A genuine Janome bulb - if you can get one - may cost more but should last a lot longer. I don't want to say your sewing supply shop is not providing the right bulb but ....

The other possibility is that you have just had a run of bad luck to counteract someone else's good luck of not having a bulb blow. Sorry (but thanks!).

Finally, try to avoid touching the bulb with your bare hands when you fit the new one. All peoples, everybody's, hands have a natural layer of oils on the surface that can cause hot spots on a bulb surface and make it blow. If you have any acetone type thinners (nail varnish remover) give the bulb a wipe over with that before fitting to make sure it is thoroughly clean and use a piece of new clean cloth to hold it when you are fitting the bulb.

Good luck

Disconnect from electricity and ensure the bulb has cooled down (or if blown for a while, no problems).

Using your screwdriver, press down into a hole on the top of the case to make the bulb protude below the casing. Bayonet socket, push in and turn towards the back to remove bulb. tally_girl_5.jpg Reverse the process to insert new bulb (15W maximum).
Bulb is inclined as per diagbram above.
