The bobbin willl not turn nor the needle go up and down

Whatever the brand and model number, you can find the manual on line, and the company website will have a specific troubleshooting area.

Generally, it may be that it is not threaded correctly. Rethread the machine, both the top and the bobbin, following the machine diagrams and directions. There are YouTube tutorials for most brands and models available to assist.

Thread may be caught in the bobbin case. Remove the bobbin and bobbin case, pull out any stray threads or clumps of thread, then reset the bobbin case, replace the bobbin.

Make sure the needle is not bent, and is installed correctly. The machine will lock up if the needle is bent or not properly installed.

The machine is locked up. I've tried checking for thread behind the bobbin case, but cannot get the bobbin case to move.

Check your owner's manual troubleshooting section.

Assuming the machine is jammed with thread:

Try removing all the thread, remove the needle, the presser foot and the needleplate (if it is removable). If there is a thread tangle in the bobbin area, try to snip the thread loops and gently pull with tweezers or needlenose pliers. The best thing would be to get the bobbin case out of the machine. Once the bobbin case is out, the thread should be pretty easy to remove.

Is not sewing properly

It SOUNDS like your bobbin case is either not in properly, your bobbin is either not correctly wound or too loosely wound, or your bobbin is warped. You can determine if it's warped (happens over time with plastic bobbins) by rolling it down a table top. If it wobbles, it's warped and needs replacing. They cheap to replace; I took a look and visually it appears that it's a Class 15 bobbin. I would also consult my user's manual; there is a troubleshooting section on the last page. If you don't have it, you can download it free at the Singer Sewing Machine site.

I have Brother LX-3125. I am using it for the first time. How can I take the bobbin out of the bobbin case. The case has an empty bobbin snapped in.

the lx 3125 has a front loading bobbin case which must be removed by pulling the latch on the bobbin case and thereby pulling the bobbin case from the shuttle.

once you have the bobbin case in your hand, let go of the latch and the bobbin will drop out of the case. you can now wind the bobbin or replace it with a wound bobbin - make sure that the bobbin thread is threaded down the slot in the case and behind the tension spring, also the bobbin should turn clockwise when you pull the bobbin thread when loking at the bobbin in the case.

Using Singer 7470 for the first time, and my bobbin thread is bunching terribly. There is a loud sound from the bobbin chamber, as if the mechanism is bouncing around??? How can I fix this bobbin issue?...

1. Take bobbin out and re-insert and thread.
If that dosen't work, try:
2. Take bobbin out and bobbin case, clean area and re-insert bobbin case and bobbin.
If that dosen't work, try:
3. Re-thread the top thread that goes to the needle. (Sometimes the thread dosen't hook to the "Thread take-up"(page 6 on manual). It pulls the bobbin thread and the bobbing becomes loose inside the bobbin case.
If that dosen't work, try:
4. Wind a new bobbin (Sometimes a bobbin might wind thread to lose) Do not wind thread to the edge of bobbin.
If that dosen't work, you should take it in to be serviced...Somenthing might become loose that only a technitian can correct.
Also check manual for troubleshooting.
Good luck.....
