Singer 7466 bobbin winding problem

When I try to wind my bobbin the machine works fine for about 1 second then it completely stops, beeps a high pitch beep, and flashes 88 across the screen. I JUST opened the sewing machine, it is brand new. What is causing this? How can I fix it? Thanks.

to wind a bobbin you get thread and put it where it usually would be put it behind those 2 metal piece (see pic in manual) and there put it around the thread guide and then u put the tip of the thread through the hole of the top of the bobbin from the inside to the outside  and u are really to start, u should already have the bobbin and the spinning metal piece, then u move the metal piece to the right into the notch and press the presser foot and hold it until it stops you and you're done :-)

SOURCE: Problem with winding thread onto

first you must make sure the winder shaft is turning by moving it to the right a little and see if you can turn it by hand.
If it is turning ok then there is a rubber ring on the other end of the winder shaft and it should come in contact with the drive which turnes it ,if it is worn it might need a new rubber.

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.

You can find Singer bobbin winding instructions at http://www.singerco.com/resources/bobbin_wind.html.
"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

My wife had the same problem with a high pitched electronic squeal, all lights blinking. A quick cleaning of the machine cured the problem. Raise the needle to the highest point and remove the needle plate by removing the 2 screws. Remove the bobbin case and clean all the fibers out and your machine will run like new.

Code 88 starts flashing as well as all the stitching lights on the panel when I try to thread the bobbin. I can sew, that is NOT the problem, threading the bobbin is. What is Code 88? I am not interested...


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

Bobbin won't wind on Singer futura CE-100


My singer hasn't wound bobbins for years and I don't care because I use a Side Winder bobbin winder. It's much easier than takining the thread off the machine anyway. Available from Hancock, Jo Ann or even Wal Mart for about $30.

Can't seem to wind a bobbin on Singer 7466 .


HI, THERE ARE SEVERAL THINGS TO LOOK FOR WHEN YOU ARE WINDING A BOBBIN. FIRST CHECK YOUR THREAD, IS IT ON THE MACHINE GOING IN THE CORRECT DIRECTION. SECOND CHECK TO SEE IF YOU ARE THREADING THE THREAD THRU THE BOBBIN AREA ON TOP OF THE MACHINE CORRECTLY. I AM NOT FAMILIAR WITH YOUR MACHINE, BUT MOST HOME MACHINES HAVE THE BOBBIN THREADER ON TOP...THIS IS WHERE PART OF THE TENSION NEEDED COMES FROM TO WIND THE BOBBIN. NEXT, DOES YOUR MACHINE REQUIRE YOU TO LOOSEN THE TENSION ON THE WHEEL, OR DOES YOUR MACHINE HAVE YOU MOVING THE BOBBIN POST BEFORE IT WORKS. LASTLY, CHECK HOW YOU ARE ADDING YOUR THREAD TO THE BOBBIN AND PLACING IT ONTO THE BOBBIN HOLDER, IF IT IS NOT CORRECT IT WILL JUST SPIN OFF THE THREAD. I USUALLY LET THE THREAD GLIDE THRU MY FINGERS AT FIRST TO MAKE SURE I HAVE THE CORRECT TENSION. SOME MACHINES HAVE A TENSION SCREW THAT YOU CAN ADJUST THE THREAD TENSION. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A MANUAL FOR YOUR MACHINE, GO TO SINGER AND MOST LIKELY THEY WILL HAVE ONE THAT YOU CAN PURCHASE. I HAD TO BUY ONE ONCE AND IT WAS ABOUT $15.00, MAYBE THERE IS A SITE YOU CAN GET ONE FOR FREE I DON'T REALLY KNOW. HOPE THIS HELPS. JUST A SLIGHT THING NOT CORRECT AND YOUR MACHINE WILL NOT OPERATE CORRECTLY, SO IT MAYBE JUST YOU HAVE SOMETHING BACKWARDS OR YOU NEED TO LOOSEN THE FLYWHEEL OR MOVE THE BOBBIN PEG.

Singer 7444 won't wind the bobbin... please help...

Bobbin does not fill completely


Machines that stop the bobbin winder automatically when the bobbin is full have a mechanism that detects how much thread is accumulating in the bobbin while it is winding, then stops the winder when the bobbin is full. It is likely that the bobbin winding mechanism needs to be adjusted by a mechanic. 
On the other hand, if the thread winds evenly, and stops winding when the bobbin is about 3/4's full each time, you probably don't need to worry about it if all else is good (even tension, consistent stitch quality, and so on). 
If you'd like me to post some general troubleshooting tips, let me know.
Good luck
