Singer sewing machine #6268 Bobbin winding not working

I have a Singer sewing machine #6268 and the bobbin wind is not working. I did find a small stop in the machine. The only place I could find where it goes is on the back side of the slide plate. Is is OK to super glue it one.

    Hello,

    Hoping someone can help me too! I have an older Singer #6268 and am having a lot of trouble winding a bobbin. Sometimes it works, but most of the time it doesn't and I can spend a lot of time with this. Today I opened the machine up, took needle plate off and can see a little assembly which can be adjusted by a screw. I have loosened the screw and moved it around in many postitions but I would like to know where it needs to be in order to wind or if something needs replacing. It seems to me it needs adjusting, but how? Thanks for looking. Joy

First you must clean the bobbin chase, remove all lint and threads. After you have cleaned that area, reset your screws (assuming you adjusted the screws on the bobbin case and not something else). Re-thread you upper thread and make sure the pressure foot and needle are in the highest position and you are in straight stitch mode. Then install an empty bobbin and push the cover so the arrows match (you should hear a slight click). Pull the upper thread down and wind it over the presser foot screw, insuring you are on the little area DIRECTLY BEHIND THE SCREW, pulling thread under the pressure foot before winding the thread. Press "A" button and the circle with the dot in the middle should light up. The just press on the foot pedal. You can see through the view port how the thread is winding the bobbin.

SOURCE: Bobbin won't wind

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

Wind the Bobbin
For the usual jobs, it is the best to use a medium sized thread.
2. Disengage the flywheel by unscrewing the coupling knob as far as it will go.

3. Place the bobbin on the bobbin winder, and push the bobbin winder to the right.

4. Pull out one of the spool pins and place the spool of thread on it.

5. Pass the thread through the bobbin winder tension discs, as indicated.

6. Wind the end of the thread around the bobbin by hand, in the direction indicated.

7. Wind the bobbin, at a medium speed by pressing lightly with a finger on the spool so as to stretch the thread better and thus fill the bobbin to a maximum. The full bobbin stops automatically.

8. Re-engage the flywheel by tightening the coupling knob.

9. Cut the thread and remove the bobbin from the bobbin winder by pushing the latter to the left.

SOURCE: Singer Sewing Machine model 9224. Bobbin thread

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.

Let me know.

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.

Trying to wind the bobbin on my singer 6268 but the thread keeps winding under the bobbin. What am I doing wrong?


if the bobbin winder is driven of the end of the machine then you may have to guide the thread as it winds onto the bobbin
if you are allowing the thread to come directly from the reel and it is not in line to the bobbin then what you have is what will happen

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.

http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1272_6268-_-6268_6267-wholeas-of-6_23_05-special.pdf

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