Bobbin winder won't spin

On my Pfaff 1211, the bobbin winder will not spin properly when the bobbin is on the holder. I can coax it into spinning if there is no bobbin sitting on the holder, but as soon as I put the bobbin on there, it is very stubborn and will not spin. My husband says it sounds like there is not enough torque to spin it. Any ideas what I might try to fix this?

The two most common problems are that you either need a new bobbin tire, or just need to adjust the position of the winder a little closer to the hand wheel. Remove the top cover and you will see the winder assembly. Loosen the two screws that hold the assembly nudge it closer to the hand wheel side. If you move it too far the winder will constantly spin. Also, examine the rubber tire, it may have a flat spot on it in which case it needs to be replaced. If it is worn out you may not be able to tell just by looking at it.
These winders can be tricky to adjust but why not try?
Good luck!

Brand new brother and cannot tread bobbin. The spindle that I put it on will not spin


You didn't state the model, but the bobbin winder will not work until it is activated. Either the bobbin holder pin needs to be pushed to the side or there is a post that needs to be pushed toward the bobbin. Best to review the instructions in the manual.

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.

My bobbin winder will not turn correctly


Ok this solution may be obvious but I'll say it in case you haven't tried everything; when you put the correct bobbin on the post,it has a slot which lines up with a metal spring on the winder post and makes an audible SNAP. Also you need to have the post with bobbin in place firmly snapped to the right for it to wind properly.Also check how you have the thread coming to the bobbin,follow the diagrams precisely.If it still doesn't work well, go buy a bobbin winder they're much easier anyway! Good Luck!

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 shaft won't spin. LCD says bobbin winding.


Mine stopped working too. Gave up and wound bobbins by hand for a while until I broke down and took the machine apart -- an ordeal to figure out. I found that a pliable ring on the winder was completely disintegrated (gummy plastic-like stuff). An online search found this -- a bobbin "tire" which I THINK is the part I need: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/bobbin-winder-tire-brother-x55238051.aspx. Hope this helps. --Also cleaned all the lint out when I had the machine opened up. They don't make it EASY!
