My bobbin cotton wraps around the bobbin holder and jams the machine

I have tried cleaning out the bobbin area and rethreading, but everytime the cotton continues to wrap around and around the bobbin holder in the machine, causing the machine to jam. How do I fix this?

I know this is probably not the answer but: are you sure the thread is coming off of the bobbin on the left side (bobbin in machine correctly), and when I first got my machine I tied to use the bobbins that I had on hand that fit my Singer machine. I had tons of problems with the "odd" bobbins that did not fit correctly into my machine. There is a VERY small size difference, but it does make a difference.

Bernette 75, thread wraps around bobbin housing, the bobbin fits totally inside the bobbin holder


Clean out the bobbin area thorougly. The bobbin must be the right size. If it is too tall it will cause the thread to wrap around the bobbin. Make sure you insert the bobbin and check to see if it is higher than the bobbin.

I'm new at this and my thread is jammed. I've moved the hand wheel back and forth but the dog feed was jamming it as well as now that I've removed it the bobbing will not spin completely.


Most likely you have thread wrapped around and in the bobbin area of the machine that is not allowing the machine's handwheel or bobbin to turn completely. Open up the bottom of the machine and remove all the thread, etc. that does not belong.

try rethreading the machine--use EVERY thread guide
make sure the needle is inserted up into the needle holder and turned the right direction
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case and turned the right direction
clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for loose thread or lint
make sure thread has not come off the thread take up lever
also the jam could have caused the machine to jump time and needs a timing or a adjustment

Singer 3820 Bobbin Issues? I can't sew!


Unthread the machine completely, remove the bobbin.

Make sure that the bobbin case is securely in its place.

Turn the handwheel and ensure that the bobbin case is not jamming.

Turn the handwheel until the take-up lever is in the highest position.

Raise the presser foot and rethread the machine.

Chaeck the upper tension setting and set it around 5.

ALways make sure that you start sewing, stop sewing and thread the machine with the TAKE-UP LEVER IN THE HIGHEST POSITION.

Good luck!
