Thread is not pulling off spool while trying to fill a bobbin.

Singer 2010 touch tronic. Trying to fill a bobbin and several things happen;
1. thread does not pull off spool. Have chedcked proper spool placement and rethreaded machine 4-5 times. have manual and i think it is correct.
2. once the thread did pull off the spool and the thread pooled under the bobbin- did this once in 8 tries

The bobbin light does not come on as the manual says it should. Is there a connection?
other ideas?

There are a couple things that come to mind. If your plate is not pushed all the way up where it engages the metal tab on the bobbin, it will not wind properly. Second, if you are using a generic or an old bobbin, you need to replace it. I have seen many machines drive the owners crazy and it turned out to be a bad bobbin.

No, sewing machines that use bobbins don't have an adapter like that. It would be difficult to get the bottom tension right working off the spool. The best solution is to fill several bobbins in your thread color before starting to sew. Then when you run out, swap in a new bobbin.

Some advanced machines will warn you when the bobbin runs low. (I've seen the feature on the machines with touch-screens.)

I wish that I had better news for you. A serger might be a an option to consider. They don't use a bobbin and can be used for some sewing projects. You can still run out of thread on one cone before the others run out. (Those machines use 3-4 threads at a time for the basic stitches. The knife can be lowered if you don't want to trim your fabric while stitching.)

(I've got a Singer Touch and Sew and usually don't run out of bobbin during a seam. I will swap bobbins when they are still 1/4 full at times if I get concerned about the bobbin running out.)

I owen a Creative Touch Fashion Machine Model 1030. I tried to fill the bobbin and the thread is filling under the bobbin instead of inside the bobbin. Had it fix in late 2009 and it came back with this...

I've had that problem before, I wrap several loops on the bobbin it's self & as I start to wind I make sure the thread from the spool is pulled tight from the spool to the bobbin,,& that usually takes care of the problem

I have a singer touch tronic 2001sewing machine. I put the material to be sewed down, put down the foot and when I tried to sew, after a few stiches, it pulled the materal down and locked up. I pulled...

What type of material are your trying to sew? If it is stretchy, or thin put some gift wrap tissue paper under it to stabilize it. Also, adjust your tension to about 2 or 3. Now check your needle, put a fresh one in, maybe a 9 or 11. Do not use old thread, either because it breaks easy. Try this, I hope that it works for you. You can buy stabilizer, pellon but tissue paper is what we used years ago, sometimes even computer paper. Good luck.

My singer sewing machine 2010 will not wind the bobbin. The bobbin does not capture the spool thread. I am able to sew with a filled bobbin, but not able to wind a bobbin.

It sounds like your path for your thread around the guide is not correct, read your maual, page 10 and see that you have to cross over your thread to give the right tension, then slide your bobbin over to touch the lever. Also, remember to hold the tail of the thread for a few rotations before you let go. If, you do not have a manual, go to and download one for free.
