SOURCE: while sewing the bobbin case moves, wheel locks up, needle locks

Im not sure if this will help but thought I would pass it along. My Pfaff 6122 tells me to check bobbin for thread unrolling clockwise before you place it back in the machine. I had mine turned to un roll counter clockwise, this is wrong, the bobbin will fall out when you pull on the thread while you are holding it in your hand. You may just keep putting it in backwards. Hope this works for you. J.R.

SOURCE: can't tighten clutch on Kenmore zig zag sewing machine.

The clutch has fallen off the shaft. Remove the very small screw in the clutch release screw to remove the clutch release. Place the clutch(round thing with ears on it) back on the shaft with the center ears pointing towards the outside. Put the clutch release screw back on. Tighten it to make sure it works
properly. Put the small screw back in the clutch release screw and test it again. If it will not tighten or release properly, remove the clutch ,rotate it180 degrees and try it again.This should solve your problem.

SOURCE: my thread gets stuck down in the bobbin area.

Ensure that you are threaded correctly, set your tension for roughly 4.5 and "floss" your machine when threading by grabbing the thread by the needle immediately prior to threading the needle with your left hand, and the thread on the top by the spool with your right hand; then pull the thread back and forth briefly.
Ensure that your bobbin is in the bobbin case in the correct orientation.
Ensure that your feed dogs are in the "up" position. Many inexpensive machines do not have the option to drop the feed dogs, and I believe your kenmore to be one that lacks the option, but consult your manual just to be sure.
Also make sure you're using a good quality thread. Use a European thread, and definitely avoid anything from the dollar bin or any kind of "dual duty" type thread. Cheap thread causes nasty nasty things to happen to sewing machines.

If none of these fixes solves your problem, let me know; but going through the above will solve 99% of problems like you're describing.

Good luck,

Mine does the same thing with the cheap plastic bobbins. I switched to the metal bobbins and no more issue!

Bobbin shuttle doesn't move


Look in your book.

- There is a bobbin (clear plastic) it rotates.
- The bobbin fits into the bobbin case (black), it does not rotate.
- The bobbin case is nested into the shuttle which does rotate.

There is no bobbin shuttle.

My Kenmore Sewing Machine's needle is locked down


best suggestion try inserting new needle. cotton up the top suggests needle problem or incorrect top thread tension, this would effect the feed dog. Because thread is black and most recent use was with pink, the problem thread was already there perhaps in cavity above bobbin but below throat plate. I have had this happen and nothing will move, untill needle released. The bobbin holder tension may also need adjusting after the knots of black cotton are removed.

Brother sewing machine jammed?


take bobbin out...look in case in machine and pull any loose threads...you have to sew very slowly so this does not happen...the books don't tell you that!!! Make sure bobbin itself is neatly wrapped and thread is out where it is supposed to be once inside case.

The hand wheel just stays put while the inside of the machine seems to be moving, like something is slipping.


Move the bobbin winder to LEFT. Sounds to me like you didn't re-set after winding a bobbin.
Hope this helps!

New Problem...I have a Singer CG-550. When I try and sew anything, the needle hits something inside where the bobbin is. The little black casing holing the bobbin keeps moving all over the place, I slip...


On the right of the black bobbin case there are two screws, you can slacken those screws off and move the bobbin case nearer to the guard leaving enough room for the thread to pass through, if the needle is hitting the bottom you may need to retime the machine.

unscrew the black plate that holds the bobbin case in place and move it over (to the left) ust a tiny bit. It still needs wiggle room, but moving that plate should help it stay in better.

Singer/merritt 2430 bobbin fill


If you lift up the thread holder, the bobbin holder is inside. Loosen the hand guide to stop the needle from going up and down. Pull the thread around the top thread guide and back into the bobbin holder. Thread the bobbin and move the bobbin over so the guage is "inside" the bobbin. As for the manual, the Singer Merritt 2404 is applicable to the 2430 if that helps.

I have singer sewing machine. The black casing the bobbin fits in is supposed to move when sewing, I know, but this seems to move excessively and does not fit in tight enough so that when sewing, it slips...


The black bobbin case that the bobbin sites in is not supposed to move at all, on the right hand side of the bobbin case you will see two screws, if you slacken them off you can push the guide bar closer to the bobbin case leaving enough thread to pass through the gap.

Can't reinsert bobbin holder


You may not have the bobbin case seated properly in the bobbin well. Make sure the flat edges go underneath the metal flanges that are there to hold it in. I'm attaching photos of a similar problem I answered earlier that might help you understand how it goes in.

Below are the directions I sent with the photos...I hope this helps you! Good luck!

"This type of case can be a pain. First in photo 1, on the silver flange marked in a red circle there is a rectangular hole marked with a green circle. using a flat head screwdriver, insert into the rectangle and turn to the right. This should move the flange tongue marked with a blue circle towards the back white wall of the bobbing well. In Photo 2 take the black bobbin case and place in the bobbin well area marked with the pink spiral. Tilt the case slightly to insert the flat tongue marked with an orange X on the black bobbin case under the flange marked with an orange X in the bobbin well. Now let the black bobbin case sit in the bobbin well marked with the pink spiral. Now in Photo 3, you want to turn the black bobbin case to the right so the flat tongue marked with the orange X will go underneath the flange marked with an orange X. The other flat area marked with a purple X on the black bobbin case should line up with the purple X in the bobbin well. Once the black bobbin case is seated in, repeat the steps from Photo 1 in reverse to get the silver flange back over the bobbin case to hold it in place. I hope you can understand my directions and I hope this helps! Good Luck!"
