SOURCE: Bobbin winder shaft won't spin. LCD says bobbin winding.

I had the same problem. The trick is to make sure that when you put the bobbin on the winder that the notch on the bobbin clicks on the notch holder. So turn the bobbin on the winder until you hear a click or that the bobbin can not be turned. To check if the bobbin is on the holder correctly start the bobbin winder without thread. If the bobbin is engaged on the winder it will spin, if not then it is not set on the notch. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Bobbin stuck on bobbin winder, how do I get it off? it will not budge!

Is thread under bobbin? can you turn it? can you pull the thread off the bobbin and then remove it? Bobbin that comes with machine may not be right one. Right one has a light blue tint and a slightly domed top.

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: Problem with winding thread onto

first you must make sure the winder shaft is turning by moving it to the right a little and see if you can turn it by hand.
If it is turning ok then there is a rubber ring on the other end of the winder shaft and it should come in contact with the drive which turnes it ,if it is worn it might need a new rubber.

Does a stand alone bobbin winder for futura singer bobbin exist?


A stand alone bobbin winder DOES exist, is commonly available, does a better job, AND is inexpensive. Just go to the WalMart site (even if you don't want to buy from there) and put "bobbin winder" as a search term. My favorite is a Simplicity, available for under $25, AND if you order it and pick it up at one or their stores or a FedEx facility, shipping is free.

Just received a singer futura II model 920 which seems to sew just right. When I tried to wind a bobbin, I just can't get it done.


If it is a new machine, take it for warranty service. Sounds like perhaps something is misaligned with the release lever. In the meantime, a standalone bobbin winder can be purchased at JoAnn's, Hancocks, or Amazon.com for about $35 (helps reduce wear & tear on your machine).
===============

It's very difficult to say whether it is worth the price of repair. On the other hand, what would you do with a machine that doesn't work? It could be something very simple that can be repaired for a small price, or it could be something expensive. (However, since you indicate it is only the bobbin winder that is faulty, otherwise the machine works with that one exception, you can save up to get the bobbin winder fixed.) FWIW, a standard check, clean & oil could cost around $100 (based on what I currently pay for my machines). However, you could ask what it would cost to fix the bobbin winder only.

From a search on eBay:
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=singer+futura+920

You can track similar machines and their sales prices to determine if it would be worth fixing your machine. Even if you don't, you can still purchase the standalone bobbin winder and continue to use the machine anyway. A working machine is better than none at all.

Why won't my bobbin winder work


It could be the belt has snapped, or something else it out of adjustment. You can either get it fixed, or purchased an inexpensive bobbin winder for under $25 from WalMart online.

Bobbin won't wind on Singer futura CE-100


My singer hasn't wound bobbins for years and I don't care because I use a Side Winder bobbin winder. It's much easier than takining the thread off the machine anyway. Available from Hancock, Jo Ann or even Wal Mart for about $30.

My bobbin won't catch on the bobbin winder, the metal post spins but the plastic singer style bobbin won't spin with it. What's wrong?


The bobbin may be stripped, or the bobbin winder might be stripped; try it with a different bobbin, to rule out the bobbin being the issue; if that doesn't work, look closely at the bobbin winder to see if it has been damaged. You may be able to adjust it's shape with a pliers

I purchased a Ingenuity Singer Sewing Machine The machine will not wind a bobbin. I put the bobbin on the winder and sometimes it won?t activate when I push it to the right and other times it when it does...


Sometimes it is a simple thing like a faulty bobbin, there is a very small piece of plastic that the winder has to catch and if it is worn or broken or just plain faulty then the bobbin will not turn

Bobbins


When you engage the bobbin winder it has a small rubber in which it makes contact with the driver rubber maybe that is not making contact, to stop the cotton from showing on the top, adjust the small screw on the bobbin holder tighter clockwise.
