Bobbin case is stuck in hook race cover. The bobbin case release lever doesn't seem to be working properly, and case won't pop out of hook race.


1. Try to get the hook towards the front.
2. Remove the bottom.
3. From the back of the hook you will need a wide item to go through the hole of the hook. This is so that you can tap it while it is pushing the bobbin case.
4. You may add a little extra oil to help.
5.. Be patient so that you don't bend the hook or the race.
Because the bobbin case is in at an angle it will have to be forced out. Try to see which way it is cocked so that you can place your tool against it while tapping it.

4795do i get hand wheel to turn, stuck


YOU SHOULD TAKE YOUR BOBBIN AND BOBBIN CASE OUT AND THOROUGHLY CLEAN IT. BLOW IT OUT AND THEN USE A QTIP TO MAKE A FINAL CLEAN. ADD ONE DROP OF SEWING MACHINE OIL ON THE RACE (SMALL AREA THE BOBBIN CASE SETS ON TOP OF). MAKE SURE ALL OF THE THREAD IS CLEARED OUT. DON'T THREAD MACHINE YET!
TRY TO TURN THE WHEEL TOWARDS YOU. YOU MAY WANT TO REMOVE THE TOP AND BOTTOM TO PLACE OIL ON ALL MOVING PARTS. REMEMBER THE NEEDLE ARM THAT GOES UP AND DOWN IN THE FRONT NEEDS TO BE OILED. THIS SHOULD WORK UNLESS THERE IS SOME SERIOUS PROBLEM.

How do I clean the hole under the bobbin case


I have my grandmother's old Pfaff. She used a little brush, but nowadays we have the option of using those cans of compressed air people use to clean their computer keyboards.

Bobbin winder shaft wont spin


If you take it apart, you'll void the remaining warranty. The usual cause is not getting the door open completely and/or thread wrapped around the spindle.

The needle is hitting against the bobbin and the bobbin is also turning slower


Needle hitting bobbin. It is mistimed. Sounds like it is time to take it in and ask the repair shop to. "Clean, lube, check and time"

Bobbin winder belt melted


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!

Where on the machine do I oil. Elita 240


Elnita 240, from memory was a mechanical front loading bobbin machine made under licence in Japan??? I can't find an online link to a manual for this model but obtaining a manual is invaluable so good to track one down if you can.

However, most sewing machines will have marked oiling points and many need to be oiled in the same places. So have a good look on the top of the case and see if there is a marked oiling point, often a red "spot" or similar. Also, open up the bobbin case, remove the bobbin and clean and oil inside this area. You need to use good quality sewing machine machine oil, just a drop at each point. Each time I go to use my machine after a break, I will remove the needle, presser foot, bobbin cover and bobbin, brush it all out, then add a drop of oil to the moving metal parts and run it gently for a second or two to spread the oil. Then reassemble and insert a new needle suitable for the next sewing task.

Important: Clean and oil the machine regularly. You can also clean out the tension disc by turning the tension up to the loosest setting, then sliding an edge of fabric waste in between the tension discs to clean out. Remember to turn tension back to normal setting after doing this.

My bobbin winding has suddenly stopped and I can not get it to wond a bobbin. I was in the middle or winding one when it stopped working.


Hello,

Open the bobbin cover and remove the bobbin from your machine. Examine the bobbin case and make sure there aren't stray threads jammed into any grooves. If you see clumps or strands of thread, remove them with your fingers or with tweezers.

Look over how the bobbin is positioned in the case and whether or not it is inserted correctly. Different machines hold the bobbin in different ways and some machines don't use a bobbin case. Consult your machine's manual for the proper way for its bobbin to be inserted.

Make sure the thread is wound evenly on the bobbin. If your thread has large sections of loose loops sticking out from the rest of the thread, they easily could be causing the problem. Rewind the bobbin, if needed.

Clean the shuttle mechanism and the bobbin case with a small soft brush, such as a make-up brush, and a dust cloth. Remove as much dust and tiny fiber pieces as possible. Resist the urge to blow into the machine to clear away dust, this can send debris farther back into the machine, causing more serious problems.

Oil the movable pieces of the shuttle by putting a few drops of sewing machine oil on a Q-tip and rubbing the Q-tip over the hinge-like turning areas. Do not add too much oil to the machine; one drop goes a long way.

Reload your bobbin into the machine and sew a line along a piece of scrap fabric. Check your thread tension and adjust it as needed following the manufacturer's instructions. The upper thread should never show through the bottom and the bobbin thread should never show through the top.

I hope this helps to solve the problem.

Good luck.

I broke a needle on something hard. After I replaced the needle it wouldn't go all the way down. I took the screws out and removed the piece that holds the bobbin. I can't seem to get it back in so that...


This sounds like your metal plate needs adjustment. Loosen the screws and adjust it until the needle goes all the way down. If that doesnt work, ensure that your bobbin case has been aligned properly.
