The engaging letter is the gadget where you place the bobbin. By pushing it to the right the machine disables the rest of the machine temporarily while you wind the bobbin.

SOURCE: Bobbin won't wind

I have checked the gears underneath and see no missing teeth for the bobbin part. The bobbin "seat" does raise, but does not engage. Thanks

SOURCE: Winding the Bobbin

If you have a top winding bobbin on the right hand side it may be that the winder is seizing up, you must put a drop of oil now and again down the spindle otherwise it goes dry very quickly at high speed.

SOURCE: Bobbin won't wind Singer 7422

Your problem lies with the main shaft that is to tight to release the bobbin winder mechanism, because of old grease and oil becoming sticky. A short term solution will be to remove the needle, in order not to hurt you, and then hold on to the needle bar with your left hand, while engaging the bobbin lever with your left hand. This will prevent the main shaft to rotate and your winder should work. In the long term, take it to your dealer to clean the oil and grease. You will not be able to open the machine casing yourselve, as you might damage the casing and or electronics.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Singer 6267 self winding bobbin winds around shaft under

I just figured out why my bobbine was winding on shaft instead of on the bobbin. first of all make sure the bobbin is setting up high enough, top of bobbin needs to be a fraction higher then the bobbin shuttle, next check to make sure there are no burrs on the bobbin, then make sure that the thear is catching in the groove (**** in top) of the bobbin. In order to get mine to wind i had to lett the tread go down and then slip the thread in the groove. also remember to leave the pressure foot up do not put it down. let me know if this helps.

The bobbin spool will not click to the right to fill bobbin. It moves but not all the way. I have a Euro Pro Model # 1260DX

You can always check out a standalone bobbin winder to wind your bobbins--available at most local fabric stores or online, ie Amazon... It costs around $30 and is electric or battery operated. Makes it easy to wind bobbins without unthreading the sewing machine. Also saves wear and tear on your machine. Just make sure that your machine bobbins will work on the unit--some bobbins (possibly Singer) will not fit.

My bobbin won't wind properly on my Shark Euro Pro model 7133. It is really loose and messy when I try to wind it. Can't find anything about this in the online manual.

Something is not working with your bobbin winder. Make sure you are threading it properly (consult your manual). If that doesn't work, either take it in for service or pick up a stand-alone bobbin winder at the local fabric store or online. One brand name is Sidewinder and costs ~$25.

Shark Euro Pro 473: The needle won't go up and down when I press the pedal. Power is on, light too and machine running but no action. Any suggestions other than rethreading everything? Thanks!

Is the bobbin winder engaged? The smaller handle inside the balance wheel, the large handle. If the bobbin winder is engaged the thread will only wind around the bobbin and the needle does not move.

My bobbin winder will not turn and wind the bobbin. I have taken it to a reputable repairman and he says the bobbin-winder motor has a loose pully but there is no way to get inside to fix this. Help!

Why not just buy a stand along bobbin winder device then. They are pretty common, you can get one from this website.

I have seen them cheaper than this too I think. Certainly solves the problem, just wind the bobbin on this.

Machine will not advance

Check to be sure the feed dogs are engaged (up) and the bobbin winding features are disengaged.

If you can't find a solution, go to the store where you bought it. They should be able to give you a free demonstration. But you are entitled to basic instructions at least.

Euro-Pro Shark Intelli-Sew 9110

you need a new bobbin case, only problem is finding the right one. I am currently wasting hours trying to find one for our 9110 intelli sew which has needle holes punched through it from where it jumps right out. I think lots of manufacturers know fine which parts fit the Euro-Pro but would like all of us to scrap them and go out and buy theirs!

Euro pro 385w problems

if your machine is like mine the bobbin is not filling right. My bobbin thread is very loose when it should be tight. I am also looking for bobbin solutions. If I wind the thread around the thread tension guide 2 or three times it keeps the thread tight going to the bobbin winder. I hope this helps
