SOURCE: Bobbin stuck on bobbin winder, how do I get it off? it will not budge!

Is thread under bobbin? can you turn it? can you pull the thread off the bobbin and then remove it? Bobbin that comes with machine may not be right one. Right one has a light blue tint and a slightly domed top.

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.

Dear Wendy,

The E4, error message means the safety device is activated. Machine is locked up due to thread entangled with the bobbin case. Remove the needle plate and bobbin case. Check for any thread around the hook area. Also check your handwheel. It should turn freely. Good Luck

SOURCE: I have a singer 503A. The bobbin winder will not

When you have the winder rubber on try and turn the winder by hand, if it does not move the chances are the winder has seized, if the winder wheel is moving but not the spindle then the grip (thread) has worn, if you cannot move the whole winder by hand and it has seized you need to get some WD40 and spray a few drops down the spindle, take an electric drill and put it over the top of the spindle and switch it on slowly and it will probably free it off, be aware of oil splashing out.
you mighjt get a digram from www.tandtrepair.com

Singer Tradition - my bobbin winder has stopped winding so I have to wind thread on manually.


Check on a standalone bobbin winder called "Sidewinder." Make sure it is compatible with your bobbins--some bobbins won't work on the Sidewinder. If it is compatible, then for ~$30 you can wind all your bobbins. (I have one that is powered by battery or by electricity.)

I have a singer Fashion mate 7256 and when I turn the machine on E 4 comes on the screen. I have looked in my book buy can't find any information on this code! Can you help m


E4 is a bobbin shaft error I believe. In order to clear the message, you need to clean the bobbin case and turn the machine on and off.

Also check the bobbin winder shaft. If it is pushed over when you try to run the machine you may get the error.

I just downloaded and took a look at the user's manual at the singer site--I recommend you do the same, the manual is invaluable. On page 29, it says the the bobbin winder is in operation. Typically, you engage the bobbin winder by moving a shaft over--move it back into sewing position.

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.

My singer quantum 9940 bobbin will not fill even. What seems to be the problem?


There's a small screw on top of bobbin winder on your machine. Turn screw to adjust pressure where bobbin meets the winder when winder is pushed to right to wind it. Test with small turns until you are satisfied with appearance. Make sure nice, even fill- as you know, imbalanced bobbin will reak havoc. Jimmy

My bobbin won't catch on the bobbin winder, the metal post spins but the plastic singer style bobbin won't spin with it. What's wrong?


The bobbin may be stripped, or the bobbin winder might be stripped; try it with a different bobbin, to rule out the bobbin being the issue; if that doesn't work, look closely at the bobbin winder to see if it has been damaged. You may be able to adjust it's shape with a pliers

Bobbin winder won't spin


Singer 9410 I take it ??
More detail is always helpful here, saves time and guesswork.
Likely to be worn or broken Bobbin Winder Rubber...like a tyre that runs off the handwheel inside casing when moved to Right side position.
