Unthread the machine
Open the top of the machine and take the thread and place it through one of the whole in the bobbin (from inside to outside) and pre-wind to secure the thread around the bobbin
Wrap the thread around the far left feeder knob on the top and put the bobbin on the bobbin holder in the top right-hand side
Push the bobbin to the right until it snaps in place (it will click)
On the outside of the machine, un-secure the hand sewing wheel so that it is loose
Power the pedal and watch the bobbin load
When finished, push the bobbin holder back to the left to release it and you're done

Thread Bobbin on Newhome Sewing Machine

HINT: install a brand new needle. Remove the top thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and then rethread the top thread. The upper tension should start out set at the midway point. Use only fresh, good quality thread--AVOID old or bargain bin threads.

If the machine is threaded correctly top and bottom, but is still not catching the bobbin thread, then it's possible the machine is out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Since it is an older mechanical machine, it is recommended to clean and oil the machine frequently. Oil Before using it if it has been in storage. If the machine is sticky, motor drags, etc., here's a good reference for getting it back in shape:

I have an sx 2122 new home machine. My reverse stitch is not working properly. Everything is running in reverse. I am not holding the reverse stitch down and it still goes in reverse. I bought my...


I'm thinking it's that you have to hold it down the whole time you want to stitch in reverse,if not,

The most common cause of machine misbehavior is - believe it or not - the needle. So swap it out. I don't care if it is brand new --- sometimes they are bad from the manufacturer. It is such a simple fix and one that you need to learn right now -- when in doubt -- change it out!

Be sure to install the needle the right way. There is a flat side that needs to hit the adjusting screw so that it doesn't wiggle around when sewing.

Next - be sure that you have threaded the machine correctly - go back and look at the owner's manual and re-thread the machine -- leaving about a 2-3" tail after going through the eye of the needle from front to back.

Now - for the bobbin -- is this the bobbin that came with the machine? If you purchased new ones - are they the right size - it doesn't go well with the wrong size bobbin. OK - now, did you wind it on the machine or by hand? If you did it by hand -- is it evenly, tightly wound. Are you using standard thread or are you trying a specialty thread?

Did you put it into the bobbin case / holder going the right direction -- machines can get pretty finicky - so make sure that it is unwinding the correct direction. It must turn counterclockwise. If the bobbin is in backwards or upside down - easy to do on some machines, and impossible on newer models, it can cause a great deal of trouble.

Also, make sure that you have not inadvertently bumped the tension adjuster for the bobbin. This can be a stick like adjustment at the top of the machine - may be an adjustment on an LCD screen - it varies depending on the model.

Again leave a 2 - 3" tail and put it in place correctly.

Make sure that the presser foot is up - and that the feed dogs are engaged.

Now - using the hand wheel on the right side of the machine - and holding on to the upper thread tightly - move the needle up and down once to bring up the bobbin thread through the throat plate of the machine. The bobbin thread will be caught up and a loop will be visible between the presser foot and the base plate. Gently pull both threads up and to the back of the machine - out of the way of your sewing.

When you begin working on a piece of material - hold both threads firmly to the back and take the first few stitches slowly to make sure that they are not going back down the throat of the machine. Be sure NOT to try to start at the very edge -- begin about a 1/8 to 1/4" in from the edge. If you are doing quilt work and only using a 1/4" seam - then back up after starting and come forward again. If you are using a traditional 5/8" seam allowance - no worries

Threading a bobbin on the new home 2014le

place spool of thread in , route it towards your bobbin holder, take thread and put through one hole about 4 inches hanging ontop. press it in and slide it to the right where you hear a click, hit the peddle, should be winding, it will automatically stop on its own when full. click it to the left when done, snip it and then drop that into your bobbin holder , cover your plate, thread your upper thread and presto you are now sewing with your threaded bobbin, always remember these steps. #1 material choice #2 thread weight #3 needle size. you got to match those 3 for beautiful perfect stitches.

Started sewing backwards now not moving material at all

Sounds like the machine's age is causing the lubrication to get sticky.

Try changing the pattern by moving the pattern selector around.

Take out the bobbin and remove the thread and presser foot, raise the presser lever, set the pattern to zig zag, set the stitch length to maximum and run the machine at full speed. While it's running, repeatedly press the reverse lever all the way down. Run it for at least a few minutes.

Bobbin thread not feeding into the upper needle thread

completely unthread the machine....ensure the needle piston shaft is in the correct position and retread the upper. reinstall the bobbin and turn the machine by hand to engage the bobbin thread. Draw the bobbin thread through the stitch plate and with the needle thread, allow to trail off the back. attempt to sew a piece of scap material.

please let me know what happens at this point.

What do you mean you are unable to pull the bobbin thread through, elaboration would help solve the problem...
I suspect I'm having the same problem with you if it's anything to do with the top thread looping around in the bobbin holder.

Damn machine!
