Question about Singer 132QRFB Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

I am the one who had the problem of the bobbin case moving around and not letting the machine sew correctly. I lossened the screws to the right and slid the metal plate a little closer and the thread is still able to slide around the bobbin case and catch the bobbin thread. But, now when I did a sample sewing, it makes big thick loops of top thread on the bottom altho it looks like the top is sewing just beautifully. What now should I do?

Now you need to adjust the tensions, make sure you thread the machine with the presser foot up, top tension should be about 4 or 5, you should be able to pull the bobbin thread through with slight resistence, if it is too tight slacken the large screw on the bobbin case about a quarter of a turn at at a time anti clockwise and test sew until you get it right, do not use very thick threads.

The bobbin won't stay in place


Your bobbin is too short. The correct bobbin must be even with the bobbin case. If it is the bobbin case that is moving around then you must adjust the inner rotary hook bracket assy. It must allow the thread to move between the corner (near screw) and the bobbin casing. Rotate the hand wheel towards you to make sure the thread fits between the corner and the casing. Make it as tight as possible without a snag taking place.

How to replace bobbin assembly correctly on my singer merritt 4530 ? the threads been getting caught all around the bobbin assembly.


Yes, it should, and you might want to download your user's manual free at the Singer website, because replacing the bobbin case is pictured there.on page 41, along with instructions.

However, I can tell you that the feed dog plate with the two screws in is DESIGNED to be removed, and must be removed to get the bobbin case back in. It's important that you follow the instructions; the case must be inserted correctly so that it does NOT move, and make sure that it sits evenly in the bobbin basket (the thing that holds the bobbin case. While you are at it, you might want to also clean the basket, using q-tips with a drop of ONLY sewing machine oil on the cotton, making sure you also get under the lip before you put the bobbin case back in.

I thought I loaded my bobbin correctly, but I start sewing and it tangles all around the bobbin and gathers all the thread and stops the machine.


Make sure the bobbin turns anti clockwise in the bobbion case and make sure the thread pulls through the slot with slight resistence, if it is too loose tighten the screw on the bobbin case about a quarter of a turn to the right and test sew, repeat if necessary

My bobbin case came out of my sewing machine and I can't get it back in correctly. The bobbin case moves around. I have a singer cg-500/550


I just had this same problem and although i could not find the answer online, I managed to fix it.

If you look at the bobbin case there are 3 different tabs sticking out.

First you need to have tab #1 under the main part of the machine, and #3 over top of the small twisted metal piece below the bottom fabric gripper.

The hard part is to get the second tab into the proper spot. I circled the piece that you need to move in red. If you move the little piece by pushing it with a flat screw driver, you can line up the bobbin case so that tab #2 is under the metal piece and the bobbin case will be properly set.

Don't give up! It wasn't easy to get it back but I did it, I'm sure you can too!

My bobbin tension thread is bunching up and not sewing right, top stitch is fine? I've moved the tension control number each way and this does not help at all. I've tried different bobbins also? Help!! ...


Recheck your bobbin and make sure it's in the bobbin case correctly.There may be arrow diagram on face plate or bobbin case. You can also check owner's manual to make sure bobbin is inserted the right way. If it isn't, the bobbin thread can "whiplash" causing the bunching you've describe. If you have smooth stitches on top, your top threading is all right. I hope this helps. If it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution.

I have singer sewing machine. The black casing the bobbin fits in is supposed to move when sewing, I know, but this seems to move excessively and does not fit in tight enough so that when sewing, it slips...


The black bobbin case that the bobbin sites in is not supposed to move at all, on the right hand side of the bobbin case you will see two screws, if you slacken them off you can push the guide bar closer to the bobbin case leaving enough thread to pass through the gap.

Cannot thread bobbin


If I remember correctly this machine has a little arm in the bobbin case area. You will need to open the slide plate, move that arm towards the middle of the bobbin. Thread your machine as normal, take the thread going through the needle eye and wrap it around the thumb screw a couple times, then start "sewing" your bobbin should begin filling, once started, you can release the thread wrapped around the thumbscrew. Once filled, you simply close the slide plate and that moves the arm back into place and start sewing.

Thread tension?


I own this little gem of a machine. It definitely sews a perfect stitch. I'm assuming you own the green 3/4 size machine as denoted by your product number. The half size blue one pictured is incorrect.

Anyway, this machine sews a perfect stitch, due to the oscillating bobbin. Most sewing machines with rotary (drop in) bobbins don't have an easily accessible bobbin tension screw, which means your fabric is usually slightly puckered. Fiddling with only the upper tension helps very little. This frustrates me to no end for sewing long curtains, clothing side seams, etc. Wrong tension causes them to hang with puckers, making them look awful. With the Hello Kitty 3/4 size Janome, there is a screw on the bobbin case which allows you to adjust for every thread diameter perfectly. Always a perfect stitch, if you take the time to adjust this screw.

To adjust the bobbin for a perfect tension, load the bobbin into the bobbin case and thread it through the guide. Holding only the thread between two or three fingers, let the bobbin case dangle below. This will be slightly difficult, because the bobbin will want to fall out of the case. Don't worry, just don't move it around too much and it will stay in long enough for this test. If the metal bobbin case slowly drops lower, unwinding thread as it goes, the thread is too loose. Tighten the screw on the side of the bobbin case a little (about a quarter turn.)

If the bobbin case seems to be dangling firmly, give the thread a gentle tug, lifting up fairly quickly. If it doesn't release a couple of inches of thread, it's too tight, loosen the screw. You know the tension is perfect when a quick, light tug of the thread releases a couple of inches of thread.
