Make sure that the hand wheel is engaged by pushing it in. To disengage, pull it out.

I have a Consew 206RB-4 and cant get the bobbin winder to work.If no thread is attached to the bobbin,the bobbin will spin correctly.But when threaded the bobbin doesnt spin Ive loosened the tension


Hi Trish,
Have you checked if that wheel which spins the bobbin winder is pressed properly against motor belt which spins the machine itself, maybe its not aligned properly or it doesn't press firmly enough against that belt, or the belt itself is old and stretched and it doesn't put enough pressure on that wheel.

Model 2142. Motor runs but why doesn't belt move for regular sewing?


Make sure the bobbin winder has not been activated. When the bobbin winder is activated, the needle bar is deactivated. The belt could also be stretched, damaged, or broken.

If it is a mechanical machine, how long has it been since a thorough cleaning and oiling?

It was working now it seems to be frozen the needle part wont move

Bobbin winder will not spin on sewing machine


If you take the top off you will see a tiny rubber tire that engages the winder to the handwheel. Over time they get really soft are really hard and disintgrate. If you have a local sewing shop take the old one in and get a new one to slip on it takes only a few minutes and cost usually less that $2.00

Kenmore sewing machine (new) - bobbin threading post is not spinning to thread the bobbin - any solution?


If the bobbin winder is not turning after pushing it on it will either be that there is some oily rsidue on the winder rubber, the winder rubber is worn on one side although if the machine is new it is very unlikely, the winder rubber is not connecting with the balance wheel which means an adjustment and that will mean getting inside the machine which is not easy.

Kenmore by sears model 1581457180 need a manual or a how to thread the bobbin


hi there,
on my manual 1581 kenmore show figure on how you thread your bobbins and upper thread.
to thread bobbin insert the thread on one hole of winder holding thread and rotate thread on counter clockwise rotation several times, loop the thread on tension thread and insert bobbins winder on winder shaftat top of your sewing machine push the latch to lock bobbin winder
pull the handwheel to disengage the clutch and to move the winder free rotation.
press the foot pedal to run your winder and thread your bobbins be sure on counterclock wise rotation.
if winder is full of thread this will automatically disengage the shafting winder from clutch.
