How do I thread the bobbin? I lost the manual

I lost the manual and now I'm just trying to thread the bobbin. I know the bobbin goes on top of the machine but where is the "button" to make the spool thread the bobbin? Thank you.

Go to the Brothers website. I just googled the model of my machine. and Brother actually allows you to print the manual for FREE. There are other sites that want you to pay for it.

I need to know how to thread my tcm sewing machine as i have no instructions as it was given to me thank you


I do not know this model but why don't you visit www.about.sewing.com, there is good general threading information there as well as care and maintenance tips for sewing machines. Older machines need oiling, many modern ones have nylon parts or oiling wicks so not required so often. If you can see red marks on parts of the machine, these are usually oiling spots.

sewing machines are usually horizontal top loading bobbins where the bobbin goes into a bobbin holder and the thread gets clicked into a tension spring.

Or vertical front loading bobbins inside a removable bobbin case with a tension spring on the outside of the bobbin case.

Top threading up is usually through a number of eyelets, through a tension device of some sort, then down to the needle.

Remember, the scarf (cut out) of the needle should face to the back of the machine. Most domestic sewing machines use 130/704H needle system and the needle has a flat shank which goes to the back in the needle holder so you get this right.

You can also try www.sewingpartsonline.com or www.sewusa.com, both list some instruction manuals and threading diagrams for some makes and models.

The tension on the bobbin is giving big loops and then breaking


This could be one of the following:
  • wrong bobbin for the machine
  • bobbin loaded the wrong way - must rotate anticlockwise when you pull the thread
  • thread not into the tension spring/device on the bobbin holder correctly
  • bobbin wound badly, uneven tension, loose or uneven across the bobbin
  • poor quality or old dry brittle thread could cause the breaking (but the loops is definitely tension issues).
This is a top loading bobbin machine machine and you can download a manual from
http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html

Here is the threading diagram from the manual.

tally_girl_21.jpg It is important to click the thread down into the tension spring on all top loading bobbin machines and then pull gently on the thread to check that it is under tension, you should feel firm resistance when you pull the thread. If not, then take it out, and try again.

Other thing to look at is how the bobbin is wound. It is necessary to wind a bobbin smoothly and with some tension on the spool as the thread comes off it. Best analogy is the garden hose reel. If you wind it up and don't control where the hose goes onto the reel it will all lump up in the middle, and you won't get all the hose onto it. And then when you go to pull the hose out, it will jam and be difficult to pull. Same with bobbin thread. You want a nice neat even fill across the whole width of the bobbin, not just the middle. To achieve this make sure you use the bobbin winder tension disc when winding. Also use the spool cap on top of the thread spool to stop it from bouncing around as it unwinds - the thread will then wind off around the spool cap and this keeps it running smoothly and not twisting and jerking. If you don't have a spool cap then put the curved handle of a pair of scissors on top of the thread spool to tension it while you wind the bobbin. Also watch the bobbin as it winds, give the thread a nudge with your finger to control the fill onto the bobbin so it winds top, bottom and middle of the bobbin evenly.

I would suggest the following:
clean out the race following the manual directions to remove the bobbin holder, clean in this area, replace it. Wind a fresh bobbin and then load it into the machine, following the manual instructions carefully. Also thread the top of the machine following the manual, put in a new sharp needle from the pack, turn the top tension dial to a medium number (often 5 if dial goes from zero to 10).

Now test sew again. Look at the seam, if you have loops on the bottom of the fabric, underside, then the top thread tension is too loose or not in the top tension discs fully. Generally you should not need to adjust the tension on the bobbin thread for these machines.

The stitches are not interlocking, the top line looks OK but the bottom line is a straight thread, I would be grateful for your help. Thank you, I've lost the manual Brother PS33 quick system


Tension issues, sounds like the bobbin thread is not under tension at all. Take it out, and rethread the bobbin into the tension device. Sorry, don't know if your machine has a bobbin case (front loading) or is a top loading bobbin directly into a bobbin holder.

You might be able to get a threading diagram from www.sewusa.com or try www.sewing.about.com for general diagrams and tips.

Check what number your top tension dial is set to also.

Good idea to obtain another manual as you'll need to refer to it for maintenance of your machine as well as general use.

Need to know how to thread bobbin


manuals can be purchased @ janome. com. your machine should have a bobbin winder. Set empty bobbin on the bobbin winder pin. Thread spool of thread though guide(or tension wheel on the top of the machine;NOT the stitching tension.) wrap thread around bobbin to start, and push bobbin toward the flywheel. slowly press foot pedal and bobbin should begin to turn. apply more pressure to foot pedal to increase speed.When full, bobbin winder should kick back to stop.

Bobbin not looping top thread to make a stitch


Get a manual for your machine so you know how to properly thread the machine - you need to be sure the thread goes through the guides in proper sequence and - ALWAYS thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up.

You need to be sure the bobbin thread is feeding in the correct direction from the bobbin spool and through the correct guides.

Check the needle to see if it is installed correctly and is not bent.

Most sewing machine needles are installed with the flat side toward the back of the machine.

After proper threading and bobbin feeding, hold onto the top thread tail and lower the needle down and back up to pull up the bobbin thread.

Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

You did not provide the make and model of your machine so I can only suggest if you do not have a manual, search the Internet. Singer and Brother have downloads. Sewusa has many brands/models.

Top thread doesn't pick up the bobbin thread (Toyota sewing m.)


Hi! This may sound silly, but if you changed your needle and put it in backwards (which is easy to do), the top thread won't pick up the bottom thread. Take your needle out and check the flat side of the needle shank--which way is it facing? With a lot of the newer machines, the flat side goes to the back, but check your manual to make sure.

Let me know if this helps, ok?

Happy Sewing!

Using Singer 7470 for the first time, and my bobbin thread is bunching terribly. There is a loud sound from the bobbin chamber, as if the mechanism is bouncing around??? How can I fix this bobbin issue?...


1. Take bobbin out and re-insert and thread.
If that dosen't work, try:
2. Take bobbin out and bobbin case, clean area and re-insert bobbin case and bobbin.
If that dosen't work, try:
3. Re-thread the top thread that goes to the needle. (Sometimes the thread dosen't hook to the "Thread take-up"(page 6 on manual). It pulls the bobbin thread and the bobbing becomes loose inside the bobbin case.
If that dosen't work, try:
4. Wind a new bobbin (Sometimes a bobbin might wind thread to lose) Do not wind thread to the edge of bobbin.
If that dosen't work, you should take it in to be serviced...Somenthing might become loose that only a technitian can correct.
Also check manual for troubleshooting.
Good luck.....

Bobbin threading


Unthread the machine
Open the top of the machine and take the thread and place it through one of the whole in the bobbin (from inside to outside) and pre-wind to secure the thread around the bobbin
Wrap the thread around the far left feeder knob on the top and put the bobbin on the bobbin holder in the top right-hand side
Push the bobbin to the right until it snaps in place (it will click)
On the outside of the machine, un-secure the hand sewing wheel so that it is loose
Power the pedal and watch the bobbin load
When finished, push the bobbin holder back to the left to release it and you're done
