Put the thread through one of the holes. Then put the bobbin on the spindle. Pull about 3 or 4 inches out of the hole and hold on to it. Start winding the bobbin. After about ten turns, or when the winding thread is secure, you can stop the machine and cut off this 3 or 4 inch tail. To insure that the thread winds up and down the bobbin and not off the top or bottom, there is probably a metal bobbin tension disk that the thread must pass around before it goes to the bobbin. It is probably on the left of the machine and may or may not be part of a thread guide. The thread must pass around this disk on its way to the bobbin in order to put tension on the thread so it will wind properly. If you can't find the disk, which is a small metal button or screw with some type of somewhat moveable spring cap, you can just get the thread to pass through your thumb and forefinger. Hold your hand 6 or 8 inches to the left of the bobbin and pass the thread between your thumb and forefinger so that it makes the thread go in a direct straight line to the bobbin. Pinch the thread only enough to keep it taught but not tight and let it flow through your finger to the bobbin. The thread should go up and down evenly on the bobbin. If not, move your hand up or down to position it so the thread will wind up and down smoothly. It will not be necessary to move your hand once you find the correct position needed for winding.

SOURCE: Singer Concerto sewing machine model 9217 - bobbin thread problem

This problem is common in sewing machines with plastic bobbin cases. The new case you've ordered will most likely solve your problems. I might suggest checking the point of the rotating hook, to be sure it is burr free.

i was having the same problem. try putting in a new slide plate - the pressure from it holds the bobbin down, but it wears thin after a while. fixed mine.

Check your bobbin case if it looks like it has and feels like there are barbs on it they catch the thread time for a new bobbin case. I had mine less than 2 months and had to get one my machine sews and embroiders great now

My bobbin on my Singer 4562 keeps bunching up the threads, can you help?


If you have the black bobbin case you must make sure you use only a good mercerised thread, there should be enough gap between the edge of the bobbin case and the silver adjuster to allow the thread to pass through, if there is not then you must slacken off the two screws and move it over a fraction.

Just got the sewing machine last night - read the manual, etc - the tension of the bobbin is way off. tried every solution mentioned, but its still not working


are you adjusting the little screw on the tension spring on the bobbin case by minute amounts each time? Only turn it a quarter turn each time you change it.

If you do the dangle test, (suspend the bobbin by the thread tail) the bobbin case and bobbin should stay still in the air, but a gentle tug on the case should release thread. Adjust the little screw with the mini screwdriver in your kit until you get it to this point. turn it left to loosen and right to tighten.

Also check that the bobbin is in the bobbin case the right way, page 12 of your manual should show this. Yout want the bobbin to turn anticlockwise when you pull the thread tail. Then load it into the shuttle using the latch on the bobbin case to secure it.

It is possible that the tension spring itself is faulty in which case you can buy a new bobbin case for the machine from the local machine shop, or http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/brother-lx-3125-parts.aspx

I need to know how to adjust the bobbin tension on my euro-prox sewing machine.


There is a tiny screw on the side of the bobbin case.

Mark the **** (in the screw head) position on the bobbin case with tiny dab of nail polish so you will know where the original setting was.

Left/loose and right/tight.

If you are adjusting because the bottom stitching is loose/loopy, first try threading the machine with the presser foot up to see if this solves the problem.

My Singer 507 sewing machine keeps on jamming up, the thread gets wound around the bobin and jams. I have thread the machine as in the manual. PLEASE, PLEASE could you help.


If you have the 507 with the grey or black plastic bobbin case you may need to undo the two screws on the right hand side on the silver bit and push it over to the bobbin case so it is tight or enough gap between the bobbin case and the silver bit about a thread width.

Wont sew thread bunches up


Hi!

I think you are threading the top of the machine incorrectly. Make sure that what I'm saying is correct, use two color threads to sew with- and you will see that it is in fact the top thread that is bunching.

This might be a tension problem. Could be the bobbin is not threaded in the case right. First, check the threading of the bobbin and then check the stitch.

Next, adjust the tension on the bobbin case. There is usually a small screw on the case that can be tightened or loosened. I think you may need to adjust it a bit or adjust the top tension knob, just a small bit at a time. It the top does not change the stitch, then go to the bobbin case and adjust the screw to tighten the stitch a little bit more.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee
