Remove the needle, and place a screwdriver or something like it under the needle bar to keep the wheel from turning.
Wrap the knob in some type of fabric to keep it from being marred.
Using channel locks or water pump pliers, grasp the knob and turn it to the left. It should come loose. Once it is loosened, try it 2 or 3 times to make sure it works as it should.
Wind the bobbin, insert a new needle and have fun again.

How do I add thread to the bobbin


The small box you will turn towards you while you hold the big handwheel. It might me very tight but it isn't going to break by turning hard. Tighten the small screw before you begin. When it is loose you can wind your bobbin.

How do I add thread to the bobbin on Singer sewing machine 3114?


Your repair shop will have to fix the handwheel, but you can still wind your bobbin. UNTHREAD the machine completely, and take the needle out. Set up your thread to wind the bobbin, and push the winder over until it clicks. Wind your bobbin. I don't have a picture of your model; this is just standard.

The Balance Wheel and the Clutch Release knob will not tighten together again after filling a bobbin. How do I fix this?


THERE IS A SMALL SCREW AT THE MIDDLE KNOB ON THE HAND WHEEL THAT YOU NEED TO LOOSEN. AFTER THAT TIGHTEN THE HAND WHEEL KNOB JUST AS YOU WOULD WHEN YOU ARE GOING TO SEW. NOW, TIGHTEN THE SMALL SCREW. YOUR MACHINE SHOULD BE OK FOR SEWING AND YOUR BOBBIN WINDING.

How to tighten or adjust wheel socan sew after threading bobbin


your wheel should tighten enough to make the needle, bobbin, etc to operate. if you loosen the knob the needle, etc shouldn't move. to adjust keep pressure on the knob counterclockwise and loosen the screw. at a point the knob will slide over a hump. you may now tighten the screw and try to use the bobbin wind and sew functons. you may need to do this adjustment a couple of times.

Singer 362 bobbin


It appears from the manual (see pages 9-10, which are on 11-12 of the pdf version) that it is necessary to disengage the hand wheel (loosen the center knob) with the bobbin winding lever all the way to the left, before putting the bobbin on the winder spindle. Put the bobbin on the spindle, then set the winding lever to the right position to engage the spindle drive. Do not tighten the hand wheel knob until after the bobbin is wound and the lever is moved back the left to permit bobbin removal.

If you are following these directions exactly, or you can't get the hand wheel knob loose, you have a mechanical problem to solve. You may need a stronger hand to loosen the knob, or something in the bobbin winder is bent, out of adjustment, or jammed with foreign material. If you are mechanically inclined, you may want to remove the top cover of the machine for inspection.

Needle does not move when I try to sew.


On these old singers, there is a locking washer that controls the tighten and release mechanism. If it is not in the proper place your efforts to tighten and loosen to engage the sewing functions do nothing.

How do i add thread to the bobbin? i have wound it and placed on the knob, and pulled out the wheel but nothing is happening..


when you place the bobbin on the bobbin winder on top of your machine, you then push the lever closest to it into the bobbin until it clicks. most newer machines will automatically quit using the needle when you are winding a bobbin if its an older machine there may be a push button on the wheel or you may have to loosen the knob inside the wheel to keep the needle from operating , you then use the foot pedal to wind just as you would to sew. Bobbin will automatically pop when full, be sure to redo anything that you had to undo to wind bobbin.

Needle not going up and down but power getting to the machine


Check your manual for the bobbin winding steps for your particular model.

On some machines there is a knob in the center of the hand wheel that is loosened for bobbin winding - this also disengages the movement of the needle. Tighten for sewing.

There may be an additional step, such as moving the bobbin winding pin to the right or the bobbin winding wheel to the left.
