Turn your machine off and leave it off. Remove all bobbins - in the machine & from the pin. Remove all thread - from threaded machine and bobbin thread path. Clip the machine thread at the spool and pull the needle thread towards yourself. Clip bobbin thread at spool and close to bobbin, then pull towards you through thread guides. This keeps the tension where it belongs. Move the bobbin winding shaft from normal sewing back to winding bobbin a couple times. It should click in place when moved to the winding position. Check to see if there is any thread that has slipped under the bottom of the bobbin and wound itself around & under the bottom of the shaft. Carefully unwind to clear. If the shaft does not easily move back to the sewing position it is probably stuck in the winding position. Don't force it, but try to get it out of the winding position. Leave it to the left in the normal sewing position (unclicked). Check to see if there is any thread caught anywhere along the path from spool to the winding pin. Pay close attention to the first thread guide and the two discs the thread slips between that control tension. Hand wind the wheel on the right towards you to raise and lower the needle a couple of times. Stop with needle in highest position. Do NOT wind hand wheel backwards (away from you). Make sure the bobbin pin is not in the winding position. Now turn on your machine. Needle should jump to default position. Move the stitch length and stitch width guides to the far right, then far left, to attain the green lights. Press the reverse stitch button to raise lower and raise the needle. It will stop in the highest position. If you still have the error code - make sure the bobbin winding pin is NOT in the winding position. Remove the needle. Lower the presser foot and run the machine without any thread a bit. If the needle bar does not go up and down most likely the bobbin pin is stuck in the winding position. If the code has cleared use your manual to carefully wind a new bobbin. Make sure you are using a 15J bobbin which this machine requires. It will not work with just any bobbin. Next, raise the presser foot then carefully thread the machine. If you don't have a manual you can download one from the Singer website. You might consider cleaning the entire machine paying special attention to the hook area and feed dogs while the power is off. If you find a lot of lint do this more frequently to prevent buildup. Take special care when replacing the bobbin care. Hope this helps. If not call Singer. It may take some time but you should be able to reach someone to help you troubleshoot. If this is an older machine I recommend taking it for repair yourself instead of sending to Singer
The foot must be up when threading a sewing machine to disengage the tension disks to allow the thread to slip between them. When you lower the presser foot, the tension disks close to provide the necessary tension on the thread as it is forming a stitch.
Have you tried pulling gently on the thread coming up from the bobbin? If this doesn't give, the thread may be tangled around the mechanism (under the machine, where the bobbin fits). Open that section and you should see if there is excess thread wound around. Clear this, and when you put the machine back in place, gently hold the bobbin thread to assist in not having loose thread to tangle again. This sounds like my machine sounds when that happens to mine so I hope this fixes it.
have you tried changing the needle? rethread the machine top & bobbin clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case & also wound correctly
You can either take the machine in for repairs or, use another sewing machine (if you have one that uses the same type of bobbin) for bobbin winding or purchase a Sidewinder Bobbin Winder - search the Internet for the best price.
TRY THIS, itma not be your model, but should help
Title: How do I wind the bobbin?
Pre-tension disk Bobbin winder shaft Bobbin
Pull up the spool pin as far as possible, and then put a spool of thread on this pin.
Pass the thread around the pre-tension disk.
Make sure that the thread passes under the pre- tension disk.
Pre-tension disk Pulling it in as far as possible
If the spool of thread is not in the right place, the thread may tangle on the spool pin.
Pass the end of the thread through the hole on the bobbin from the inside of the bobbin.
Put the bobbin onto the bobbin winder shaft and slide the bobbin winder shaft to the right.
Turn the bobbin clockwise, by hand, until the spring on the shaft slides into the groove of the bobbin.
Spring on the shaft Groove of the bobbin
Turn on the sewing machine.
While holding the end of the thread, gently press the foot controller or press start/ stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button) to wind the thread around the bobbin a few times. Then stop the machine.
If the sewing machine is to be operated using the foot controller, connect the foot controller before turning on the machine.
When the foot controller is plugged in, the start/stop button cannot be used to start sewing (only for models equipped with the start/stop button).
Trim the excess thread above the bobbin.
Make sure you follow the instructions carefully. If you do not cut the thread completely, and the bobbin is wound, when the thread runs low it may tangle around the bobbin and cause the needle to break.
Slide the sewing speed controller to the right (to set the speed to fast). (For models equipped with the sewing speed controller.)
Sewing speed controller
Press the foot controller or press start/stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button) to start.
When the bobbin seems full and begins spinning slowly, take your foot off the foot controller or press start/stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button).
Cut the thread, slide the bobbin winder shaft to the left and remove the bobbin.
Slide the sewing speed controller back to its original position (for models equipped with the sewing speed controller).
Not winding the bobbin properly may cause the thread tension to loosen, and may break the needle.
Wound evenly Wound poorly
When the sewing machine is started or the handwheel is turned after winding the thread around the bobbin, the machine will make a clicking sound; this is not a malfunction.
The needle bar does not move when you slide the bobbin winding shaft to the right.
Not sure what a 4D machine is, but guessing you have a Designer of some kind. Have you put in a new bobbin since you sewed out the successful design? Did you wind it yourself or is it a pre-wound? If wound yourself, maybe the tension on the bobbinfill was not correct and the bobbin is not wound properly as a result. Wind a new bobbin - take the machine speed down three clicks and wind the bobbinfill around the round metal tension bit in a figure-of-eight instead of around once only (i.e. go under the disc, around to the left then over the top then across to the bobbin filling mechanism). Floss out the bobbin tension slot with a piece of strong sewing thread to be sure there is no fluff in there, and when you re-load the bobbin be sure to listen for the "click" as the thread goes into the tension slot. Sometimes designs are badly digitised and they will not sew out nicely. If you are sure your fabric is correctly hooped, the bobbin is correctly wound and securely in the bobbin case, try loosening the upper thread tension by two clicks and see if that helps the problem to go away. (SET menu, numbers and plus and minus signs under the icon that looks like a DNA thread - minus to decrease tension.)
hi!there similar bobbins winder in any brand of sewing machine uses mostly in domestic particularly in industrial manufacturing in this fig.check it out if similar to your bobbins any how itmay be helpfull onethe bobbins winder that was a thread and shoul be clockwise rotation when coming out to bobbins case,if you to wound the thread on your bobbins winder, pull threads on spool then wind this in several times 4 to 6 rotation clockwise loop thread on top machine there is bobbins winder disc for tension put winder bobbins on shaft winder near hand wheel push the latch against bobbins winder to fit thead run machine to wind the thread.After hread wound in bobbins winder cut thread and insert winder to bobbin case as shown. insert bobbins to shuttle hook case under needle foot holder lift the cover plate you can see under this is the shuttle hookafter set up was made on bobbins thread,set also the upper loop thead beginning at top of machine start on spool, pull thread and loop to upper disc tension then to the slot portion as in figure insert on lever dial goes to the needle adjust tension to #8 range to #12 for cotton fabrics two layer sewing.
I just figured out why my bobbine was winding on shaft instead of on the bobbin. first of all make sure the bobbin is setting up high enough, top of bobbin needs to be a fraction higher then the bobbin shuttle, next check to make sure there are no burrs on the bobbin, then make sure that the thear is catching in the groove (**** in top) of the bobbin. In order to get mine to wind i had to lett the tread go down and then slip the thread in the groove. also remember to leave the pressure foot up do not put it down. let me know if this helps.
