I am unable to fill my bobbin. The motor goes but the bobbin spindle does not turn.

This has happened the last two times that I tried to wind my boobin. I hear the click when I push the bobbin spindle to the right.

    Where in the heck is the small bobbin belt? I think I may have done further damage to my machine by trying to look for it.

Singer 3232 machine was sewing fine now motor runs but needle does not move up and down

Check if the machine is in the bobbin winding mode. To wind the bobbin, the bobbin spindle has to be moved to the right. (The hand wheel will not turn if the bobbin spindle is in this position.) If it is, move the spindle to the left.

If the hand wheel turns, then check for a thread jam. Remove the top thread and take out the bobbin case. Gently turn the hand wheel forward and backwards until the thread comes free of the hook in the bobbin race. Follow this by cleaning any lint from the bobbin race of the sewing machine.

The last possibility is that the belt has failed. This belt transfers the energy from the motor to the needle bar. One source of the belt is . You can find YouTube videos on changing the belt. There are other parts that transfer the forces form the belt to the needle bar. However, I suggest you find a good sewing machine mechanic if any of these parts fail.

The manual has good pictures of the bobbin spindle on page 11 (page 18 of the PDF). Singer has the manual on their support page: . The direct link to the manual is .

I hope this helps.

How do I get machine case open to take care of thread jam around spindle

Um, you cannot fill a bobbin while it is loaded in the shuttle. To fill the bobbin, you have to remove it from the machine, go through other threading sequences and wind the bobbin on the outside of the machine. If you'd provide us with the make & model of your machine, we could probably help. With the information we've been provided, there's not much we can do.

Unable to remove bobbin from bobbin threader till almost all thread removed. Viking 1+

You could stop the bobbin filling process just before the bobbin is "full."
Most machines have a finger that rides against the area being filled; maybe this is bent?

I just inherited another Huqvarna (this is a model 630). It was working great until I wound a bobbin on it. After I removed the filled bobbin the machine won't move the needle up and down (but the bobbin...

I do not know the Husqvarna Viking 630. However, I have used the Viking 6690 and it has a similar on-the-side bobbin winding routine. I suspect that you failed to move the bobbin winding mechanism back into the sewing position. Look closely at the area around the bobbin winding spindle. It looks like there is a lever below the spindle. Does this need to be moved or rotated? Double check the steps in the manual and check that you did the opposite steps of preparing to wind the bobbin.

On the 6690, you pull out a knob after removing the bobbin. (You push this piece in and put the bobbin onto the now exposed spindle for winding.)

I hope this helps.

Each machine is different. Most of the machines that are electronic have a sensor to shut it off if you place the bobbin on the winder and push the winder into its position to wind. Give it a try. Also, check your spindle at the end to pull it outwards or attempt to untighten like you do a jar. This is the old mechanical machine but it is possible this machine uses it. Next you must look on your monitor for a particular symbol that represents the bobbin. This would likely be a button to turn it off and on.

My bobbin is empty, don't know how to wind thread onto it. Not very clear instructions

Can you find the bobbin winder? You need to lift the "lid" and it is on the right-hand side - a small white spindle pointing towards you. Put a HV bobbin on the spindle. Look at the bobbin first - on one side the Husqvarna symbol is embossed - a crowned "H" in a circle. Be sure this H is facing you. Push the bobbin onto the spindle firmly, but not with so much force that you push the spindle into the machine (it takes a pretty big push to do that, but it has been done!) then using your right-hand thumb push in a downwards motion (towards the table). The spindle with the bobbin on it will go about one inch downwards. The bobbin winder is now engaged and you should have a pop-up on your screen. I often reduce the speed by two or even three clicks before I push the spindle down.

Pull the second thread spool - the one closest to the bobbinwinder - so it sits at a right angle to the machine. Put one of the spool holders (white plastic disks) - preferably the bigger one - onto this spool. This gives your thread a base to sit on. Put the thread onto the spool so that the thread unwinds from the right-hand side (closest to the bobbin). Take the thread end directly across to the silver "button" that is near to the first tension slot on the left-hand side. The instructions say to wind it around this and then across to the bobbin winder, but I prefer to take the thread under the silver button, around the left-hand side and then across the top of the button (sort of figure-of-eight style). Just be sure the thread goes in beneath the button i.e. does not sit in a big loose loop around the button.
The thread is then taken across towards the winder by going under the white plastic hook (looks a bit like a beak), then up and over the top of the next little silver button (smaller than the other one). Then you wind the thread around the bobbin four or five times and take the thread end over to the cutter located directly to the right of the bobbin winder. Cut the thread (if it is too short to be cut, just leave it flop down) and press the Start/Stop button.
The bobbin will fill and stop of its own accord when it is done. If it does not fill right up or is uneven (more on one side than another) there is a fix for that too. Write back here if you need to do this.
Don't forget to take the speed back to normal before sewing.
You can wind the bobbin from the needle but be sure you have a metal foot on, not one of the plastic ones. Personally I find I get a better bobbin wind the way described above and it only takes a few seconds to re-thread ready for sewing. I tend to have a big bobbin winding session and do lots of bobbins at once, especially embroidery bobbinfill. At any one time I would have at least six bobbins filled with bobbinfill and a dozen of various thread colours for normal sewing.

Do hope this helps you. Write back if this is still not clear. Did you try to Google for a video of this? I have never looked for one, but it is very likely that someone has made a video and made it available online.

Bobin stuck on the bobin winding part. will not come off when bobin winding is disengaged or engaged. Tried turning machine off and on. still will not come off. have looked for thread that might have...

Sometimes, depending on the thread, the bobbin winds too fast and the plastic expands with the heat. That's why you can't get it off. There's two ways you can get the bobbin off. Leave your machine turned off before trying either one! Unwind the bobbin of all its thread and maybe, just maybe it will shrink back to normal size once it is cooled and you can slip it off. If this doesn't work, there's nothing for it but you will have to break the bobbin off. Get some pliers and break it off in small pieces taking care not to get any broken off bits inside the machine. It's actually easier to do than it sounds (ask me how I know LOL!). You also need to be very careful not to yank the bobbin off and pull the bobbin spindle out of position. If you do end up doing this accidentally, you may be able to gently push it back but don't doing anything with great force - easy does it!
In future, you should wind all bobbins at reduced speed - bring the speed down at least two clicks. You get a more evenly wound bobbin this way also. And invest in more bobbins. They are relatively cheap and you can wind up quite a few at a time before starting a project.

How do I load a bobbin?

There should be a small spindle up on top near the wheel (right hand side).
Start winding the thread on by hand a few wraps to hold it in place and put the bobbin on that small spindle, making sure it is going to wind the proper way. To find out what way it will wind you can first (without the bobbin) push the spindle to the right so that it spins when the wheel turns, turn the wheel by hand for this so you can see which way it is spinning the spindle. Is it clockwise or counterclockwise? Then put your bobbin on and push it to the right so that the wheel will turn the spindle as you press the foot pedal. You should have some sort of tension clip on the top left of your machine, it looks something like the top of a big screw or may be a flat hook. Put the threat under that so that it goes directly from the spool to the bobbin, NOT through the needle. As gradually as possible wind the thread onto the bobbin but not too full, most machines will stop filling it when the bobbin is full. If yours does not, stop filling it when there is still about 1/16 th of an inch room left.

When I go to wind the bobbin the needle still moves up and down and it will not wind the bobbin but stop beep and flash. The bobbin is as far to the right as it can go but it still is not winding.

Take it to repair shop, getting to the problem requires taking the shell cover off the machine, difficult to do, then fixing the problem might be electronic in nature.

Bernina 180 - winding thread onto bobbin spool

If the bobbin winder spindle turns freely by hand and the macine runs fine with the foot controller then it may be the small motor that runs the bobbin winder that is at fault. If this is the case then your local service tech should be able to relace it. It is not a very costly part so don't be to worried.
