Had to take bobbin and bobbin case out to get all the thread out and now after putting bobbin case back in machine the proper way the needle won't pick up the bobbin thread and the thread through the needle is getting stuck on something when the threaded needle is in the down position while trying to pick up the bobbin thread without success.

    My singer Brillance sewing machine has stalled, the needle will not move up and down. I have re-threaded multiple times with no results. I have taken the bobbin case out and replaced multiple times. The machine continues to stall making no noise or not sewing. It shows a C3 in the window. What does this mean?code singer

    The Extension Table, not the Bobbin Case, I purchased as an original part for the Singer 7422. The opening slot should be 3.5" Wide x 7" Long so that it can connect where the original case would normally connect. The size of the Extension Table Opening is 3.5" Wide x 5" Long, which does not allow for proper attachment to the machine.

Singer 9217 thread winds under bobbin instead of on bobbin

Make sure the bobbin is seated all the way on the winding pin. There may be an adjustment for it--a technician can probably fix it for you. However, you can also try lifting the thread with a pencil tip just before it winds onto the bobbin. Some of my machines wind the thread unevenly (more on the bottom than the top of the bobbin) and I balance it out by lifting it when winding.

How do you get the auto threading and wind in place to work on Singer XL6000 sewing machine

There are several FB and Yahoo groups dedicated to the Quantum XL-1000, XL-5000 and XL-6000 who can help you. It may be that your problem with the autothreading is the autothreader is out of adjustment, but I'm at a loss as to the bobbin winder problem.

Bobbin refuses to be wound on self-winding bobbin machine. Bobbin does not turn. The thread is winding continously on the bottom of the bobbin basket. Need help.

Just off the top of my so-called head, it sounds like something in the bobbin area is not seated correctly. However, I would recommend that you do a search on FB and Yahoo interest groups (also on PSW software); it's members are MOST helpful, and will be glad to work with you to resolve this problem.

Singer quantum XL-150 how do i thread this machine?

All Singer models would have arrows/numbers to guide your top threading from the spool pin to top thread guide, for most machine start from your thread spool pin, to a thread guide follow arrow down then up into the take up lever and down to the needle thread guide then into the needle hole. Assuming you have wind and install the bobbin thread into the bobbin case, turn your hand wheel towards you makes the needle bar goes down,keep on turning till the needle bar is fully up again, pull the end of the top thread to pick out the bobbin/bottom thread. With your material/fabric under the presser feet, apply the presser feet lever down, you are ready to sew.

Singer 457 bobbin thread not "catching"

Providing you have put a new needle in the correct way round if the machine is not picking up the thread it may need retiming, email me and I will attach full instructions if that is the problem.

Dear Danya,

I would like to help you, but you need to give me more info. Do you want to know how to thread for bobbin winding, do you have a manual, or do you want to know how to engage the bobbinwinder, or something else?
