Singer 9410 Bobbin

Hello
I have a singer 9410 - and the plastic part that the bobbin thread fits into (part no. 14) has come loose from the machine. I am not all that mechanical unfortunately haha. When I try to re-insert it it seems loose and it does not stitch correctly. I think I did not put it in right. Seems like some of it must go under the metal plate but I am not sure which part or how to put it in correctly. This must sound retarded. But please help. Thanks!
I have the same problem - the bobbin case rattles as soon as I start to sew.  The problem seems to be the little spring holding it in place, it catches the thread leading to the long loops behind the fabric.  I can't get the spring in just the right place so that it holds the bobbin case, but doesn't catch the thread incorrectly.

Update:  Today I took my machine in to get serviced - they replaced the metal bobbin I was using with a plastic one, that was a little less rattley inside the bobbin case, replaced the needle with a new, universal one, and changed out the thread with something a little higher quality.  They also adjusted the spring holding the bobbin case slightly, and now it seems to work fine.  I'm not sure how long it will last, but for now I'm good.

My 9410 wraps the spoon thread around the bobbin. the thread on the bobbin seems to be hard to pull off once the bobbin cover is closed


Got the correct bobbin for the machine? Is it in right way around? Once you've raised the bobbin thread out the needle hole, it should pull smoothly and relatively easily. Might also being snagged on a rough spot on the needle plate (=throat plate) or presser foot. Or has someone been playing with the bobbin tension? That's normally not something the user adjusts for normal sewing. Your machine takes class 66 plastic bobbins: http://www.dritz.com/askus/knownotions/index.php They're the ones with the sides that are slightly curved in at the edges, like two dinner plates facing each other, while the 15s have perfectly straight sides.

The bobbin housing in singer model 9410 keeps moving out of position


After you put the bobbin case in, release it, and then pull on it to make sure it is in correctly.
The gathering is called a "bird's nest", and is caused by the machine not being threaded correctly.
Rethread the machine top and bobbin.
Then, sew a test stitch on a scrap of like material.

Bottom thread too loose; tried rethreading top thread, cleaning bobbin case, refilling bobbin, changing needle, adjusting top tension


Check for correct bottom thread tension.
It's provided by a flat spring on the bobbin holder.
When the bobbin is correctly installed, pulling on the thread
should meet with slight resistance, and the bobbin should spin without
trying to jump out of the bobbin holder.

Singer 9410 bobbin problems


It should not affect the winding, the reason the needle is still going up and down is because the oil has gone dry on the shaft and unless you can get to the shaft where the balance wheel is then it would be wise to take the machine in for a service, loose stitching on the bottom is a tension problem, make sure the top tension is set about 4 or 5

Can't put the plastic bobbin holder back into position


make sure the needle is all the way up and the bobbin is in the case the right way. check to be sure there is no lint or dirt impeding the case. you may have to take out the piece the case fits into to do this. i have found this to be the problem more times than not.

I have a Singer 9410 sewing mach. w/ tension & peddle problems


Be sure you are using a Class 66 bobbin for this Singer machine. Using another style bobbin can cause tension problems and thread looping/bunching.

Singer 9410 Bobbin


I had the same problem and after looking on here and finding no answer I went back to my machine and found out what the problem was...ok, where the bobbin case sets in,the metal plate beside it needs to be fitted right close to the bobbin case, so loosen the screws(just two of them) that are in the plate(DO NOT REMOVE JUST LOOSEN) and slide the metal plate over some just enough to fit snug...NOT TOO TIGHT... if its seems to sew too tight loosen it a bit It worked for me, GOOD LUCK
