SOURCE: instructions for theading a Sears Kenmore Sewing machine model 158.14000

all machines thread the same. TTN tension,take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test,adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.

To wind the bobbin, guide the thread around the thread guide on
the left top of your machine, then to the bobbin winder. Wind the thread around the bobbin several times, place the bobbin on top of the bobbin winder, push it against the wheel and press the foot pedal. It should stop winding when the bobbin is full or you take your foot off the control

SOURCE: can't wind bobbin kenmore 16221 sewing machine, no manual

On the right side of the machine there is a large knob at the top. Pull that out and you can wind your bobbin. Don't forget to push it back in so you can sew :)

SOURCE: Sears Kenmore Sewing Machine Model 385. 1254180 Bobbin Won't Wind

The winding sound is the rubber O-ring against the spinning pulley (back of hand wheel) - do not let this continue, it will wear out the O-ring.

I had the same problem and I found the shaft bushing of the winder dry and needed lubed. Use oil or spray lithium grease and it should work fine. Spin the bobbin shaft by hand (not the hand wheel) to get it freed up after oiling.

You can oil from the top and should take off the side case to clean the excess oil from the O-ring. The shaft bushing is a tight fit and any dry oil will get sticky and prevent winding.

How to Fix Code E2 on Singer Fashion Mate Sewing Machine 7256 eHow

In case you are unable to view--here is the text:
The Singer 7256 Fashion Mate sewing machine has a top drop-in thread bobbin and an automatic needle threader. The digital display on the side of the machine is used to select different stitch settings on the machine. When the display reads error code E2, it means that there is a bobbing threading error, which may be caused by the thread looping or bunching under the fabric as you sew.

Things You'll Need

  • Pen
  • Screwdriver
  • Push the bobbin-winding spindle of the sewing machine back to the left.
  • Turn the hand-wheel toward you, hold the needle thread (thread on the sewing machine needle) and tug it lightly as the needle goes down and then raises up. A small loop will raise up through the needle plate on the sewing machine. Use the tip of a pen to lift the loop up through to the back of the machine.
  • Check the position of the needle. It should be seated in the sewing machine with the flat side facing the back of the machine. If it is not, remove the needle and reinsert it so that it is facing the correct way.
  • Remove the bobbin case. Use a screwdriver to turn the screw on the side of the bobbin until the loops of thread pull taught and are removed.
  • Remove any loose fibers or threads that may be stuck in the tension disks.
  • Reset the upper tension disks. Raise the presser foot lever up. Put the tension setting of the sewing machine on setting "4." Hold onto the spool of thread in your right hand and with your left, route the thread down through the tension channel, around the bottom of the disk and up the other side. When done correctly, the thread will click into place and slip in between the tension disks.
  • Set the thread bobbin in the bobbin case, with the thread passing over the top of the bobbin and then down to the right. Route the thread through the notch located at the left of the bobbin case and pull it through. Move the thread over the top of the throat plate and over to the back of the machine.
Tips & Warnings
  • Using incorrect bobbins may cause error E2 to occur. Not all plastic bobbins are the same size, so check the model number of the bobbin to ensure that you are using the correct one with your sewing machine.

  • Never turn the hand-wheel on the sewing machine away from you, as it will change the timing on the sewing machine.

Singer error codes


I just downloaded and took a look at the user's manual at the singer site--I recommend you do the same, the manual is invaluable. On page 29, it says the the bobbin winder is in operation. Typically, you engage the bobbin winder by moving a shaft over--move it back into sewing position.

Singer stylist E2 error code bobbin winding


I have just repaired a 7258 with a frozen bearing unrelated to the E2 code except that I thought I would lube the entire machine while it was apart, and through my ignorance, I greased the clutch that releases the mainshaft when winding the bobbin, and then when the clutch wasn't working correctly, caused the E2 error. I can say the E2 error is not caused by a plug not seated correctly, too much tension in the bobbin thread, or God having a bad day. The E2 error code is thrown when the bobbin holder is in the wind position, and the mainshaft rotates. There is a clutch just behind the hand knob on the right side of the machine, and if it has too much lubrication with a stiff grease, or on an older machine, if the lube has dried out, the clutch will not release properly. I took the clutch apart, cleaned the grease I put in it, and then lubed it with bicycle silicone oil. It now works as designed. The hardest part of the repair was figuring out how the plastic cases split apart! If anyone in the SF Bay Area has a 7256, or 7258 that gives the E2 code, I can fix it - it's actually kind 'a fun...

Singer 7258 error e2 when winding bobbin


I had this problem too. What I did was turn the post the bobbin sits on to the left (lefty-loosy) and kept re-booting the sewing machine until the bobbin started to spin correctly and the needle disengaged! I was so happy I figured it out, I did not want to return the sewing machine.

Dear Wendy,

The E4, error message means the safety device is activated. Machine is locked up due to thread entangled with the bobbin case. Remove the needle plate and bobbin case. Check for any thread around the hook area. Also check your handwheel. It should turn freely. Good Luck
