SOURCE: needle is moving when bobbin is winding & lights are flashing

Check the clutch at the knob on the right side of the machine, where you tighten it to sew & loosen it to wind a bobbin. It could be very loose and when you start to wind a bobbin, it tightens itself up.

It's actually designed that way on purpose so you can wind a bobbin while sewing. If you lift the presser foot, at least it'll make less noise in the process.

SOURCE: needle does not move

lower your needle with the presser bar behind the machine. you're in bobbin winding mode when it's at 11 oclock when you look from behind and 2 oclock facing front of machine.

SOURCE: The thread is bunching up

Your problem stems from the faulty foot lever mechanism. It's coupled to the upper thread tension control which only provides tension when the presser foot is in the locked down position.

If the presser foot won't positively engage in the down position, there's no upper thread tension and the thread bunches up below. Everything else stems from there. If the needle has hit the bobbin case too frequently then the bobbin timing may also be slightly out and the needle itself will be damaged and won't pass straight through the fabric; it only takes a tiny deflection from the vertical as it passes through the workpiece for the needle to flex and hit the bobbin case.

In summary, your machine is in desperate need of repair and adjustment. You haven't stated which exact Singer model you have, but they are usually easy to get servicing manuals for or you can take the machine to a sewing machine servicing specialist. Most singer spare parts (even for 100 year old machines) are usually still available fairly cheaply from a variety of sources, just enter "Singer spares" into your search engine to find suppliers.

To prevent re-occurrence, clean the mechanism regularly and lubricate it as directed by the manufacturer using sewing machine oil. Depending on how often you use the machine, do (or have done) a more thorough service periodically to check the timing and also that all mechanism screws remain tightly fastened.

I hope that my reply has shed some light on your problem and enables you to decide what to do next. Please take a moment to rate my answer.

How to fill bobbin


All machines are different, but basically it is done on the top of the machine. First you disengage the drive to the needle by slackening off the wheel in the centre of the manual drive (the big knob on the end of the machine for manually moving the needle). The bobbin and the threads spool go on spigots on top of the machine with the thread threaded past a roller. You put the thread into the bobbin and operate the foot pedal and the bobbin fills.

Most of the instruction manuals are online.

Unable to remove bobbin from bobbin threader till almost all thread removed. Viking 1+


You could stop the bobbin filling process just before the bobbin is "full."
Most machines have a finger that rides against the area being filled; maybe this is bent?

Needle is not moving


Of course I have to guess here--not seeing the machine, but it appears that your motor is working fine. That would leave two possibilities, I think. The first is a defective foot pedal. The second is, when you push the bobbin winder, it engages a clutch that diverts power from the needle shaft to the winder. It is possible that the clutch is stuck. To find out, disengage the bobbin winder and press the foot pedal, and see if the bobbin winder spindle is still spinning.

My BV 160 is giving me problems. The fabric will not move along as I sew. I hve ck'd the feed dogs, they're ok, rethreaded the needle, bobbin, cleaned the bobbin but still not sewing.


have you checked the presser foot to see if the presser foot is holding
the fabric against the feed dogs so they can move the fabric thru to
be sewn by the needle?

Knob not moving


Check the bobbin winding feature to see if it is disengaged.

If there is thread jammed in the bobbin area, the wheel will not move.

Turn off the machine and remove the needle and presser foot.

Remove the bobbin. Open the needle plate and remove the bobbin case and clean the area from lint and thread that may have accumulated there.

Make sure that the bobbin winder stop is up. That is the little black post below the bobbin winder. If it is pressed down, the machine will not run.

Bobbin filling on Singer 626


The Singer 626 has a self-winding bobbin. You place the empty bobbin in the bobbin thingie (sorry for being so untechnical). On the left of the bobbin you will see a "lever" with a circular top on it (I think it is red-ish) Again, sorry for being so untechnical. Press the "lever" down. Thread your machine, thread the needle, wrap the excess thread from the needle around the knob that tightens the needle and holds it in place and press your foot down on the foot pedal. The bobbin will automatically wind as you hold the foot pedal down. Do not wind the thread onto the bobbin past the outer white line.
