Question about Sewing Machines
How do i wind a bobbin for a singer model 9117 sewing machine?
SOURCE: Singer model 7462 sewing machine
Sounds like there is thread around the bobbin winder shaft and the machine is unable to continue winding, needs stripping and looking at. This is not something you should attempt yourself unless you know what you are doing. A reasonable sewing machine tech should be able to sort it out in a few minutes.

I have two possible solutions:
1. you have the wrong bobbin and it doesn't grip the winder.
2. the small spring on the winder spindle is missing or bent, it is what applies pressure to the bobbin for winding.

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.
Let me know.

You can find Singer bobbin winding instructions at http://www.singerco.com/resources/bobbin_wind.html.
"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

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 singerco.com and download one for free.
