Forgot how to the bobbin to wind...please help

I just forgot how to wind my bobbin and I don't have the manual.  I have followed the numbers, but I need to push the thread over to the grey knob, but it won't push over.  Do I need to push a button or something?

You should just push the bobbin stand closer to the grey knob. Push it, it wont break.

When following manual directions to wind a bobbin, it starts out OK, but after several winds, the thread turns out with little loops on the bobbin. ??? Sylvia


Make sure that you are running the thread through the winder tension guide before it goes bobbin winder. Best to consult your owner's manual.

Also, it helps to slow down the winding process. Slower speed winds the bobbin more consistently and does not stretch the thread as much as a fast speed will.

I have a self winding bobbin on my singer model number 4663 and I don't know how to pick up my bobbin thread.


isn't this info in the manual? If you don't have one call singer and purchase one because it's not in the download area. And a search for the model 4663 brings up nothing.

The tension on the bobbin is giving big loops and then breaking


This could be one of the following:
  • wrong bobbin for the machine
  • bobbin loaded the wrong way - must rotate anticlockwise when you pull the thread
  • thread not into the tension spring/device on the bobbin holder correctly
  • bobbin wound badly, uneven tension, loose or uneven across the bobbin
  • poor quality or old dry brittle thread could cause the breaking (but the loops is definitely tension issues).
This is a top loading bobbin machine machine and you can download a manual from
http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html

Here is the threading diagram from the manual.

tally_girl_21.jpg It is important to click the thread down into the tension spring on all top loading bobbin machines and then pull gently on the thread to check that it is under tension, you should feel firm resistance when you pull the thread. If not, then take it out, and try again.

Other thing to look at is how the bobbin is wound. It is necessary to wind a bobbin smoothly and with some tension on the spool as the thread comes off it. Best analogy is the garden hose reel. If you wind it up and don't control where the hose goes onto the reel it will all lump up in the middle, and you won't get all the hose onto it. And then when you go to pull the hose out, it will jam and be difficult to pull. Same with bobbin thread. You want a nice neat even fill across the whole width of the bobbin, not just the middle. To achieve this make sure you use the bobbin winder tension disc when winding. Also use the spool cap on top of the thread spool to stop it from bouncing around as it unwinds - the thread will then wind off around the spool cap and this keeps it running smoothly and not twisting and jerking. If you don't have a spool cap then put the curved handle of a pair of scissors on top of the thread spool to tension it while you wind the bobbin. Also watch the bobbin as it winds, give the thread a nudge with your finger to control the fill onto the bobbin so it winds top, bottom and middle of the bobbin evenly.

I would suggest the following:
clean out the race following the manual directions to remove the bobbin holder, clean in this area, replace it. Wind a fresh bobbin and then load it into the machine, following the manual instructions carefully. Also thread the top of the machine following the manual, put in a new sharp needle from the pack, turn the top tension dial to a medium number (often 5 if dial goes from zero to 10).

Now test sew again. Look at the seam, if you have loops on the bottom of the fabric, underside, then the top thread tension is too loose or not in the top tension discs fully. Generally you should not need to adjust the tension on the bobbin thread for these machines.

Show me how to use singer sewing machine57815


You can download a manual from http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html, just type your model number into the search field to locate it then download the pdf file to your PC. This is a basic Zig zag machine so carefully follow the manual instructions to wind a bobbin, thread up and stitch, just make sure you follow the directions to wind a bobbin, and then put it in the right way and click the thread into the tension spring.

Bobbin Winding problem


Pass the bitter end of the thread from the inside of the bobbin and up through the hole or slot in the bobbin to the top. Hold on to the thread as it turns to get it going.

Bobbin won't wind


I also have the 15358. You probably forgot to "lock" the bobbin winder. After you put the bobbin case on it's peg, push the peg to the right until you hear a click. Then after you disengage the clutch, the bobbin will wind.

I have a singer 2732 and have misplaced the manual. I'm trying to wind thread on a new bobbin but I must have forgot some part of the process. Can anyone offer instructions? Thanks!


Hi, I hope this helps. It's kind of hard without pictures, but I'll do my best:
1)With the spool of thread affixed in it's normal spot, take the thread and wind it through that weird hooky thing (like normal) at the 'back' of the machine.
2)Then bring the thread towards the front of the machine and around the metal 'button' on the top of the machine. Do not loop around this, merely guide the thread on on the side closest to you, towards the right hand side of the machine.
3)Thread your bobbin.
4)Put the bobbin on the metal arm and push to the right (gently).
5)Push the 'button' in the hand wheel in so one end of it will pop out (this will stop the needle from going up & down while you're winding the bobbin)
6)Start pressing the foot pedal slowly and things should start to work.
