SOURCE: Singer cg-590 floating bobbin keeps jumping out of it's holder.

I'm not completely familiar with the model, but even a floating bobbin holder as you described should have some sort of a hold down. There may see a small swinging arm on the bottom right side of the bobbin area that needs to be located over the bobbin case to hold it in place. Let me know if this doesn't work.

SOURCE: problems with prolectrix sewin machine

you have to make sure the bobbin thread is positioned right in the middle. When the needle comes down (into the bobbin compartment), you can peer into the bobbin compartment and see a loop of thread (coming out of the needle). You want to catch that bobbin (thread) in the loop of thread (that runs from the needle).

SOURCE: bobbin holder won't stay put

If the bobbin case/holder is trying to lift up and the thread is staying partly around it, your bobbin case may have turned part way.
Remove the needle plate and the bobbin case. The outer edges of the bobbin case should be very smooth. I suspect you may see a needle hole in the flat area that was under the foot. If so, you will probably wish to take it to your dealer and show them. They may smooth it or recommend replacing it. When the bobbin case is placed back into the hook cup that it sets in, the retainer at the 11 o'clock position on it should only allow the case to lift up about 0.8 to 1mm at the most. If it will lift up more than this, press down firmly on the retainer and move it closer to the bobbin case. You must have enough room for the thread to pass between the retainer and the bobbin case, but too much clearance will allow the bobbin case to turn in the machine and it will be damaged by the needle.

SOURCE: I have a Husqvarna Emma sewing machine. The

I was able to gain entrance into the area by taking out 1 screw (star head), slightly pulling on the plastic compartment to cause a small opening. I then tilted the machine and the needle fell out. The screw is located on the rear of the sewing machine, right behind the bobbin compartment. A flat head screw is also needed to "Pry" open the plastic.

Does she have the right needle in? If the needle is to short it won't pick up the thread. If that is not the issue than it could be timing

Hi, the bobbin holder on my machine is not staying in place. It keeps moving when I stitch or move the needle turner. It just doesn't stay in place and therefore I cannot use the machine. Please let me...


I am wondering if you are using a different bobbin, in your manual, it specifically states that you have to use an SA 156 bobbin not one from an older machine. If, you do not use the right size it will act like you are talking about. I know that you should check that out.

I looked at the 4210, here http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html

And I do not see any adjustment. Refer to the page for installing the bobbin - are you using the right size bobbin?
