Bobbin not winding

I've got a Bernina Bernette 60 and haven't used it in some time.
That being the case, I can't get my bobbin to wind.
It doesn't spin at all, in fact.
I don't know if I'm missing something, but I also can't find my instruction manual to check to see if I'm not doing something right.
I threaded the top, and put the bobbin on the winder.
Then I pushed it over to the side.
I don't think I'm forgetting something, but I've got a halloween costume that needs to be made and I'm running out of time

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.

SOURCE: Bobbin winding message

Under the top cover, on the right hand side where the bobbin winder is, there is a small switch which is activated when the bobbin is being wound. You will need to remove the cover and reposition the switch (it's located towards the front of the machine) to make it work properly.

Also it is quite possible that the small circuit board (P-print) just below the bobbinwinder that the motor plugs into has gone bad.

Once you have the thread guided and the bobbin is on the thread winder spindle, push the bobbin to the right.  The machine will not sew again until the spindle is in the left position.

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.

I am not able to reverse the machine manually to pick up bobbin thread. Can not turn wheel backwards. It appears to be hitting something good or is jammed.


then I can only assume you did not get the bobbin case installed properly . check that first .and pray you did not knock it out of time

How do I turn off THE BOBBIN winder on a Bernette 65 sewing machine?


The bobbin spindle needs to be moved to the left in the slot to disengage the winding mechanism. (It may be easier to do this with the bobbin on the spindle. The bobbin and spindle should be moved to the right after putting the bobbin on for winding.)

The directions and pictures for winding the bobbin are on page 30-31 of the manual. The manual is available from Bernina on their support page for the out-of-print Bernette machine manuals: .http://www.bernina.com/en-US/Support-US/Out-of-Print-Manuals/bernette-manuals/Bernette-Sewing-Machines . The direct link to the Bernette 65 manual is here: http://www.bernina.com/getdoc/6d2754b8-af09-4edb-a6a6-7a4c57965b8d/bernette-55-65-80e-90e .

I hope this helps.

Singer 6268 bobbin winding


I've never seen this type of winding system. But from the manual on page 10, it shows that in order to disengage the machine from sewing mode.. you need to have the bobbin cover slide plate slightly open.

Also make sure that your bobbin doesn't have any burrs. If it does, toss it and use a new one.

I have a new Bernina 350 and the bobbin doesn't wind on evenly. If left to do it automatically it ends up wrapped around the bobbin spool. Is this normal?


the thread has to be pretty tight around the bobbin tension guide
but I would suggest if you can't get it to wind correctly to have it check to see if there is a problem with it

BOBBIN THREADING ON BERNINA 1090S IS NOT WORKING


Make sure bobbin is pushed all the way to the right to lock in place for winding. You say thread cuts...Do you mean bobbin in bobbin case and you are trying to sew, but thread is breaking? If so, a whole different issue. That means there is jam and it can happen if thread not going into tension discs top of machine. Keep presser foot in up position when you thread your machine. Clean the bobbin case and feed dog area out with a brush. Always turn handwheel toasted you or you can cause imbalance of timing. Slow down. Start over after you check basics. Make sure presser foot up when you insert new needle and thread front to back--flat side needle back, more rounded side facing you, use emery cloth to carefully, gently smooth out any burrs or scratches on your bobbin case (that threaded bobbin fits into), and make sure bobbin you place into bobbin case has thread EVENLY distributed on it. Good luck! Jimmy

Bernina 135 bobbin winds unevenly


If you are finding that the bobbin is winding with more thread towards one edge of the bobbin than the other, the bobbin winder motor needs to be adjusted so that the angle of the winder shaft is properly aligned with the tension disc next to the head cover. Unfortunately, unlike many of the other models, you have to remove the covers on the Activa range to get at the adjuster. There is a spring-tensioned screw just to the left of the bobbin winder motor that adjusts the angle of the motor and therefore how it loads the bobbin. If the winder is loading the bobbin with most of the thread towards the bottom edge, the screw should be turned clockwise and if most towards the top, it should be turned anticlockise. Make adjustments until the thread is winding evenly or, at least, towards the centre of the bobbin.

If you are finding that your bobbin is being loaded somewhat randomly, make sure you are using the vertical spool holder to hold the spool and that you've got a foam pad under the thread spool. Route the thread through the thread guide before winding around the tension disc in the correct direction (see the arrow on the case) and ensure that the spool and thread do not vibrate unduly when the bobbin is being wound. If you let the spool vibrate whilst the bobbin is loading, it may result in varying tension on the thread and uneven winding onto the bobbin.

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.
