Question about Singer 5062 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

I have a model 5062 and need more bobbins.

In my manual the part number is 172336 but at the fabric store that number isn't on any of the bobbin pkgs and my model number isn't either. I bought class 66 but I'm not sure if they are the right ones or not.

The Class 66 bobbin is the correct bobbin. The Singer part number, 172336, is specific to the 10 pack of their bobbins. This site, , gives more details on the sewing machines that use the bobbin.

I hope this helps.

Ok, hang on! This can get tricky! Remove the bobbin. Remove the presser foot and the needle. Remove the throat plate. This gives you plenty of room to monkey with your bobbin case. NOW, lay the bobbin case in its correct area and gently rotate it until it falls into place. It may take several tries. Once you're satisfied that it's secure, snap the holding clips into place and it should all fit nicely. THEN place your bobbin in the case correctly...check the diagram in the manual. Depending on the machine, some bobbins have the threads coming off counterclockwise and others have them coming off clockwise, but your manual should show. Sometimes, there's even a diagram on the throat plate or the bobbin case as well.
Good luck. Hope this works. If this solves your problem, please come back and rate my answer!

SOURCE: what size # bobbin do I need for Singer 328K Style-O-Matic?

The Singer 328 is a class 66 machine it sounds to me like you had a bobbin that was billed as a 66 but was something else. Or you had it in upside down.

I have a singer 5062 that was given to me and I am not sure how to thread it. Also I would like to download a manual if possible. My top stitch looks good but the bottom thread keeps looping up and looks...

Go to and enter 5062 into the search field. You can download your manual for free in Adobe Reader format. That should have instructions on how to thread.

It also sounds like your tension needs to be adjusted. Let me give you instructions for adjusting the tension on anysewing machine. Be sure to have a scrap piece of the fabric you are using andthread the top of the machine with a different color of thread than thebobbin-it'll make it easier to see what's going on. Thread your machine with the presser foot UP. The disks that control the tension (threadgoes through them) are tightened up if the foot is down. Change the machine tension with the presser foot DOWN.Because the disks won't be engaged (see above) if the foot is up, the diskswon't move. Start at the middle setting, 3. Go up to tighten, decrease toloosen. Each machine is different, even 2 different machines of the same model.The best thing to do is start at 3 and use a different color in the top andbobbin thread so you can easily see what changes to the tension do to yourstitches. Now use a straight stitch a sew 3 or so inches. Take a lookat the top and bottom of the fabric. You don't want to see any (or at least notmuch) of the other color showing from the other side. Loops on the bottom of the fabric means you need to tighten(increase) your top tension. If you're stitches on the bottom are causingpuckering, then you need to loosen you're top tension. For the most part, youreally don't want to touch your bobbin tension-leave that to a repairtechnician. The factory setting shouldn't be touched except by someone whoreally knows what they're doing. Keep sewing a few inches at a time until you have the resultsyou want. Now you're tension is where you need it!

How do i thread my friends machine. It jams every time she starts sewing. Its a husqvarna 200

I can't find a threading diagram for the 100 but this one is for several other husq models, so could be very close for your friends.

Make sure that the bobbin is going into the bobbin case as per the diagram and is into the tension spring. The bobbin needs to turn anticlockwise when you pull on the thread tail when looking at the bobbin inside the case.

There is also a little springlatch on the bobbin case, you need to hold this to release it from the rotary hook to take out. If this isn't working correctly, it will pop out so you'd need to replace the bobbin case.

Now check the top threading too. ALWAYS raise the pressure foot to open up the tensions. And turn flywheel towards you until needle is at highest position. Now follow the threading diagram ensuring the thread does into each eyelet, then down the needle bar and into the needle eye.

Check tension knob number, should be between 4-6, usually 5.

Raise bottom thread manually through the needle plate by holding top thread tail and turning flywheel towards you through one revolution, catching the bottom thread and pulling it up through the hole in the needle plate.

Make sure that you have a new needle in, flat shank to the back, and the right size for fabric you wish to sew, sharp for wovens, ball point for knits.

Now select your stitch, place fabric under foot, lower pressure foot and while holding both threads behind the foot, start stitching. Hopefully, it will now sew for you.

If you can't get the bottom thread to come up at all then its likely that the timing is out and it will need a service.

What class bobbin?

The type of bobbin is, in fact, a Brother SA156. This is the only type of bobbin that will fit it, and there is no cross-reference. The Class 66 and Class 15 that you probably found at the fabric store will not be compatible.

The correct bobbins are readily available at any authorized Brother dealer, or online. They are actually a very common bobbin. I would recommend doing a web search for the nearest brother dealer to your location.
