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: can't put thread on bobbin

I cannot tell what your problem is. The winder isn't working? The bobbin won't hold the thread so it will fill?

There are threading guides at the sewusa website that may be helpful as they include written instructions along with graphics.

Not all models are the same.

You will have to refer to the manual to see what needs to be engaged or disengaged.

On some machines, this is loosening the center knob on the handwheel and moving the bobbin pin to the right or the winding knob to the left.

There are threading/bobbin winding guides sewusa.com where you may find your model or one that is similar.

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.

I HAVE A KENMORE SEWING MACHINE 1641. I can't get the bobbin to wind. I have the manual and have followed all the instructions. Any suggestions?


When you push the empty bobbin over to engage the winding mechanism, do you hear it click into place, or maybe feel it click into place ? I am wondering if perhaps it's not quite engaged and that's why it won't wind. How old is the machine ?

Bobbin winder will not wind


The bobbin winder will not activate to turn the bobbin or the thread will not wind onto the bobbin spool?

Sewing machines vary in the method used for bobbin winding.

You can find threading and bobbin winding guides at sewusa.com.

If the winder is broken, you can get it repaired or check into getting a Sidewinder Bobbin Winder as an auxiliary for winding the bobbins, which would be less expensive than the repair.

Winding the bobbin


sometimes with older machines you need to add a little tension on the thread your winding from with your finger. It sounds like its coming off the spool too fast to keep up with bobbin winding.

Kenmore Sewing Machine model # c877.15


I have a Kenmore as well ,I hope that this will work for you ,too bad that I don't live close to you otherwise I would give a hand. This is the way I fill the bobbin on mine. Mine is located on the top right ,I put the thread into the bobbin hole leaving a small piece of thread hanging for me to hold when I begin the winding, I pull the wheele out to stop the needle from moving while winding, when I am done just push it back in .I run the thread from the spool into the top left it looks like a U turn with a screw go around that without winding just pull it into the bobbin hole. press the foot control and it will begin winding .
