Bobbin winder stuck to the left

The bobbin winder is stuck to the left and I can shift it to the right, but it simply puts itself back to the left. There isn't any thread wrapped around it or in the machine.

Probably a gear or part in the machine has worn or broken, it would be a good idea to have the machine checked at a repair shop.

SOURCE: needle picks up bobbin thread but then thread gets stuck

I've had similar problems (as well as other problem with the thread breaking all the time and the "shuttle race" thing that holds the bobbin falling out. One very important thing that isn't mentioned in the manual but that the salesman stressed is that you have to use only "Schmetz" brand needles. They are a tiny bit longer, but that makes all the difference in the world if your stitches are skipping. I forgot and used Singer needles and had horrible results.

SOURCE: Upper thread wraps around bobbin mechanism, while sewing

IT PROBABLY IS THREADED INCORRECTLY. GO SLOWLY BY THE DIAPHRAGM AND MAKE SURE IT IS THREADED CORRECTLY. ALSO MAKE SURE SPOOL PIN HOLDERS ARE IN PLACE THAT HELPS TO GUIDE THE THREAD CORRECTLY.

You should hold the end of the thread coming through the needle until the thread has grasped the bobbin thread.

The bobbin winder turns left to right with no resistant. The spring came off which was attached to the bobbin winder attachment. How do I put the spring back on? Thanks.


You may have to take it to a repair service.

In the meantime, for ~$30, you can purchase a stand-alone bobbin winder (Sidewinder) at the local fabric store (JoAnn's or Hancocks) or even on Amazon.com.

Need to put bobin in a merritt 4530


Flip the presser switch up to raise the presser foot. Turn the hand wheel counterclockwise until the needle is in its highest position.
  • 2Hold the hand wheel in place with your left hand while turning the hand wheel knob counterclockwise with your right hand to loosen the hand wheel knob.
  • 3Place the desired spool of thread on the spool pin so that the pin fits all the way through the hole in the center of the spool. Put the spool holder onto the end of the spool pin that is sticking through the spool of thread and press firmly to ensure that the spool holder keeps the spool in place.
  • 4Grasp the end of the thread and hold it taut between the thumb and index fingers of both hands. Snap the taut section of thread into the thread guide post located to the left of the spool pin.
  • 5Pull the end of the thread gently. Wrap the thread around the bobbin winder tension disk near the left front on top of the machine, starting at the side of the tension disk facing you and wrapping around in a clockwise direction.
  • 6Poke the end of the thread through the small hole in the bobbin from the inside out so that the loose end of the thread sticks through the top of the bobbin. Put the bobbin on the spindle, or bobbin winder, and gently slide the bobbin winder to the right.
  • 7Hold the loose end of the thread in place while pressing down on the foot pedal to start the machine. Hold the foot pedal down until the bobbin is as full as desired. The machine will automatically stop once the bobbin has reached capacity.
  • 8Cut the loose end of the thread using scissors. Slide the bobbin winder to the left and remove the bobbin. Hold the hand wheel in your left hand and tighten the hand wheel knob with your right hand by turning it clockwise

    Viking sewing machine 545 bobbin stuck on rewind


    It should just pull off of the winder shaft. There is a small spring that sticks out from the shaft to hold the bobbin in place (at least on my wife's Viking which is a different model number than yours). Is there a release button somewhere near?

    How to fix bobbin winding


    . Put the spring on the hole that the bobbin winder fits into. Now put the bobbin winder in, but don't tighten the screw- just turn it once or twice. Put the straight projection of the spring on the right side of the bobbin winder. Start to tighten the screw. Before you get the screw too tight, pull the downward projecting side of the spring over the housing of the machine so that it is pressing on the inside of the machine creating a push to the left. Center the circular part of the spring underneath the screw and the bobbin winder and tighten up.

    Bobbin Winder Works--Stitching Does Not


    The second microswitch that is located just to the right of the bobbin winder stop tells the machine that it is set to wind a bobbin.

    If the machine does not indicate that the bobbin winder is engaged, the second microswitch is not the problem. The bobbin winder itself is what shifts the clutch. If it is pulled downward, the clutch is disengaged and the upper shaft does not turn. Place your thumb under the bobbin winder, push it upwards and the clutch automatically re-engages and the shaft will turn.

    Be very careful with the touch screen cable with the front cover off. If it has the older style cable on it, they are very delicate when releasing and reconnecting. If you put the front cover back on and the touch screen does not work, this will be the most likely problem. You will need to have the touch screen replaced.

    You need to get your bobbin winder turned off first, then worry about the stop contacting the thread. If the stop is not tripped, then it is in its normal position and everything should work fine.

    When not filling a bobbin, simply raise the bobbin winder and you should be ready to sew. Look at the opening around the winder shaft in the front cover and you will need to have it up and to the right. Just push the shaft with your thumb.

    Bobbin winder is in operation mode


    Try to change the bobbin winder position from left to the right and back again, probably it hasn't moved exactly to the proper position.
    Check the version of the software and machine firmware under menu Help->About Futura. If you do not have the latest ones, you can update them through Live Update in the same submenu.

    Wind the Bobbin
    For the usual jobs, it is the best to use a medium sized thread.
    2. Disengage the flywheel by unscrewing the coupling knob as far as it will go.

    3. Place the bobbin on the bobbin winder, and push the bobbin winder to the right.

    4. Pull out one of the spool pins and place the spool of thread on it.

    5. Pass the thread through the bobbin winder tension discs, as indicated.

    6. Wind the end of the thread around the bobbin by hand, in the direction indicated.

    7. Wind the bobbin, at a medium speed by pressing lightly with a finger on the spool so as to stretch the thread better and thus fill the bobbin to a maximum. The full bobbin stops automatically.

    8. Re-engage the flywheel by tightening the coupling knob.

    9. Cut the thread and remove the bobbin from the bobbin winder by pushing the latter to the left.
