SOURCE: Bobbin winder is in operation mode

Ive done that already, didnt change anything.
My husband figured it out... It turns out that the metal pin used to keep the bobbin in place while its spinning was stuck and wasnt out completly, making the machine think there was a bobbin on the winder even if there wasnt.

Follow these instructions, undo the 2 screws on the right hand side plate where the balance wheel is and take the plate off, undo the screw on the chrome stop motion wheel, undo the stop motion and take it off, take off the 2 pronged washer and notice which way it goes on, not a problem if you can't remember, you should be able to pull the balance wheel back so you can get to the screws on the winder, if you can.t and if you have a problem getting the balance wheel all the way then go the very bottom of the machine and you will see 2 big holes and one of the holes will lead you to a big screw and nylon adjuster, slacken the screw and move the nylon adjust so the belt goes slack, you can not take the balance wheel all the way off to get to the screws on the winder, take the old one off and screw the new one on, whilst you have the balance wheel off it would be wise to put some thin oil on the shaft before you put the balance wheel back on, when you have the balance wheel on and the and the belt round the pulley turn the nylon adjuster so the belt is tight and tighten up the screw, put the side plate back on, put the 3 pronged washer back on, put the stop motion wheel back on and just tighten finger tight then tighten the small screw.

Bobbin winder not working


For ~$30, you can purchase a stand-alone bobbin winder (Sidewinder) that you can use to wind your bobbins. Saves wear-n-tear on your machine and you can wind bobbins without unthreading your machine. Just be sure to verify your bobbins are compatible with the Sidewinder.

Singer Tradition - my bobbin winder has stopped winding so I have to wind thread on manually.


Check on a standalone bobbin winder called "Sidewinder." Make sure it is compatible with your bobbins--some bobbins won't work on the Sidewinder. If it is compatible, then for ~$30 you can wind all your bobbins. (I have one that is powered by battery or by electricity.)

Why won't the bobbin winder work


Difficult to diagnose without knowing the make/model and the symptoms. Best advice is to consult the owner's manual.

Make sure the handwheel center cap is loosened before winding the bobbin. Also, snap the lever toward the bobbin to activate the bobbin winder. Confirm that the correct sequence is followed in threading from the spool to the bobbin winder.

If you are unable to get the bobbin winder to work, for ~$25 you can pick up a stand-alone bobbin winder from the local fabric store (JoAnns or Hancocks) or even online (Amazon.com).

My bobbin won't catch on the bobbin winder, the metal post spins but the plastic singer style bobbin won't spin with it. What's wrong?


The bobbin may be stripped, or the bobbin winder might be stripped; try it with a different bobbin, to rule out the bobbin being the issue; if that doesn't work, look closely at the bobbin winder to see if it has been damaged. You may be able to adjust it's shape with a pliers

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!
