Mine wasn't snapping in properly either. I took out the hook race cover and hook and put them back in. Then, the bobbin case was able to snap in. Be sure to hold it by the hinged part and have the small part that sticks out pointing up.

SOURCE: how to you put back the bobbin case into the

There is a black lever that holds in the case (look for it at around the 10-11 o'clock area on the circle where the bobbin case fits into. You need to use a screw driver (the one that came with the machine) and push and hold it back enough to wedge the bobbin case back in. the little black lever is spring loaded so it will go back to its normal position.

SOURCE: Bobbin Case

I'm having a similar problem today. I took out the bobbin case and when I went to put it back in, the whole system locks up. I've tired cleaning, changing needle taking the metal plate and piece that holds bobbin case out and put it all back in after cleaning. Nothing. My symptom is I can't get a complete stitch, the needle goes down, the whole deal acts like it will work and as soon as the arm of the bobbin case gets to 8 o' clock on the gears, It jams and won't hardly move. I cannot pull the bobbin case out easily after this. Perhaps there is someone out there that can help us!

SOURCE: Bobbin Case will not snap into housing

Insert the bobbin case without a bobbin to see if it will go all the way into the locked position. If it does,the bobbin case and basket are okay.
Check inside the bobbin basket(where the bobbin goes) and see if there is thread or lint wrapped around the spindle the bobbin case sits on. If there is, remove it. If there isn't ,then the bobbin is probably sprung and needs to be replaced.

Why the bobbin casing won't snap into place


Usually you need to hold the little latch open until the bobbin case is seated in the machine. Perhaps this video will help;

I think your machine timing is changing . So you can not put the bobbin case. Please adjust or change the timing set.

Repair bobbin case on mighty mender W100


this doesn't really address the problem. The question is not about the bobbin itself. It is about the Bobbin CASE. The case has popped out and I can't figure out how to put it back in. The machine is all plastic and I don't want to try to force it back in because it may break. The instruction manual is no help really. It shows you what position the case should be in, but it doesn't tell you how to put it in. For example, does the needle need to be in an up position, do I need to put it in at an angle, if so tilted in what direction, etc.?

How do you load the bobbin properly?


Hi there,

Well you may please follow the steps below -
1. Remove the bobbin from the sewing machine. Note: whether you have a drop-in, front or side-loading bobbin on your sewing machine. A drop in bobbin will load from the top, may be via a removable bobbin case cover near the machine-fed dogs. A side or front loading bobbin needs to be loaded into a removable bobbin case under the machine.
2. Choose the right size bobbin for the sewing machine.
3. Wind thread onto your bobbin. Your sewing machine should have a standard thread spool to hold the thread and a short, squat post wide enough for a bobbin.
4. Put the thread and empty bobbin into position on your sewing machine. Wrap the thread around the bobbin to start it. On most machines, disengage the needle by turning the smaller hand-wheel on the machine toward you. Push the bobbin post into position, securing the bobbin into place. Press gently down. Thread should begin to wind neatly onto your bobbin.
5. Break the thread, push the bobbin post back into an inactive position and remove the bobbin. Tighten the hand-wheel. Thread your sewing machine again if necessary before loading the bobbin.
6. Remove the bobbin case cover and put the bobbin into position. The thread should slide through a catch on the bobbin case and up through the cover.
7. Access the bobbin case for a front or side mount bobbin. Lift the catch and remove the removable bobbin holder. Put the bobbin into the holder and run the thread through the holder, bringing it to the front. Lift the catch and slide the bobbin holder back into the case. Hold your needle thread gently forward with your left hand and turn the hand-wheel. The needle thread will pass down into the machine and catch a loop of the bobbin thread. Pull this loop up and slide both threads to the back before beginning to sew.
Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

The casing that the bobbin sits in is out how do I put it back in. The Bobbin holder below the tension feet is out and so is the bobbin how do I set it back in with out undoing the two latches on the side...


put the bobbin in its case then pull some thread out and pass it thru the bobbin case slot and under the tension spring .. put the bobbin and case over the shaft that is in the main unit .. the open side of the case goes in first .. make sure the bobbin doesnt fall out .. rotate the bobbin case until its finger lines up with the notch in the main case .. the bobbin case should latch in place on the shaft notch .. place the top thread under and to the back of the pressure foot then turn the machine one turn .. that will loop the top thread around the bottom (bobbin) thread ... now use a card or screwdriver to push both threads from under the pressure foot toward the back of the machine ..

Want pick up my bobbin


re-thread the top thread

when putting in the bobbin, make sure you put it in right,

hold the bobbin between you thumb and first finger of your right hand when you pull the thread with left hand it should rotate the bobbin counter clockwise.

If you run your machine all day you need to clean under the bobbin case,

Take the cover plate off, take out the bobbin case and clean under, i take a q-tip with machine oil and rub around the inside of the metal case and around the bobbin case,

replace the plastic bobbin case making sure it's in right, turn the hand wheel by hand, the case should stay still and the inside will move, the needle should not hit anything

put all back together and try again

if the bobbin turns clockwise you are going to have problems

if this helps please rate it
thanks,
good luck

Threading and putting the bobbin back in the machine


Most machines have a bobbin case, that removes to place the bobbin inside and then the case goes back into the machiens. However some bobbins just load the bobbin flat from the top. The best place to start is with your machine's manual. If you don't have the machine manual, contact your machine's manufacturer or google "sewing machine manuals" as there are several vendors who sell replacement manuals. One of them is SewUSA.com and they have free threading diagrams on the site,maybe that would help you get started.
