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.

SOURCE: Top thread won't catch the bobbin thread

First check the upper and lower tension adjustments according to link below and then check the knob (bobbin case) that makes the bobbin tension which lies inside the shuttle if it is too loose. Restricted it with the sheet metals around it so that it shouldn't move so freely up and down or back and forward. Be careful it should move freely a little but not too much.

SOURCE: Singer 301a Bobbin troubles

I just had this problem, too - if you have the manual, check out page 15. If you have removed the throat plate, you need to make sure that the position finger on the bobbin case base enters a notch on the underside of the throat plate. Fixed my problem right away.

Trying to wind the bobbin on my singer 6268 but the thread keeps winding under the bobbin. What am I doing wrong?


if the bobbin winder is driven of the end of the machine then you may have to guide the thread as it winds onto the bobbin
if you are allowing the thread to come directly from the reel and it is not in line to the bobbin then what you have is what will happen

Why does my thread keep bunching up?


That is called "thread nesting," and several things can cause it. The upper thread enters the bobbin area during sewing, catches the bobbin thread, and as the needle goes up, pulls the stitch tight. Something is catching the upper thread as it goes around. The most common reasons are the bobbin or bobbin case (or both) is improperly inserted; the bobbin is warped (roll it down a flat surface--if it wobbles, it's warped), either the case or the bobbin is not seated evenly, there is a rough spot on the bobbin case that is catching the thread, or your bobbin is loosely/badly wound. You need to rule out the possibilities step by step until you find the cause. First, review your threading procedures from start to finish, using your user's manual. Then, without fabric, turn the hand wheel by hand (ALWAYS towards you) to see if you can see it start to catch. The top thread should rotate smoothly in the bobbin area. You should be able to pin-point the cause that way.

Top thread keeps catching on bobbin


check for sufficient thread clearance between bobbin case finger and locating slot. in other words it must be free to allow the thread to pass through and complete the stitch

if you've done all these things then it's also possible that the machine

I have a Singer 6268. When I try to load the bobbin, the thread winds underneath the bobbin instead. What can I do to fix this?


change the needle
rethread the machine top & bobbin

make sure there is no burrs on the bobbin case or that the bobbin
case is not damaged
