White Sewing Mach. 1620-1 bobbin type?

I just found this machine for $9 :)! It looks clean and like it will work well, but it didn't come with a bobbin or manual, I can't seem to find one online- so if anyone can tell me what type to get and how to thread it? I really want to use the twin needle (that's why I bought it as I already have a basic sewing machine and a serger).... any ideas/help is much appreciated!

SOURCE: Needle doesnt hook bobbin thread while sewing

Our machine had the same problem, there was a piece of broken thread stuck in the upper tension spring keeping the tension spring open. removing the broken thread in the upper tension solved the problem for us

The solution that I found last night was the thread tension. I have never touched the dial, only had it set on 'auto." When I started playing with it, I realized the top thread should be really easy to pull through the machine and it wasn't. I started turning the dial (to 3 or 4) and the thread slid through the machine perfectly. No more birds nest! I really thought it was bobbin initially because of the horrible sound it was making.

SOURCE: need help making a bobbin...

Ahah! I was having a similar problem, but figured it out. What you do is you first put the spool of thread you want on the bobbin in its normal place, just as if you were sewing. Then you take the end of the thread and wrap it around the metal button-looking thing on the top of the metal string catcher on top of the machine. Wrap it around once in a figure eight sort of pattern (or kinda like a Jesus-fish symbol). Then you take the end and put it through one of the holes on the bobbin. Make sure there's enough so that it won't slide out, because it will wind at sewing speed. Now, you take the bobbin and put it on the metal post on the right-hand side of the machine, the one in front next to the white plastic round with a screw in the middle. It should fit on tightly.

Now, here's the part that took me forever: on most machines I've encountered, there's a switch somewhere that tells the machine to wind the bobbin. On the White Fashionaire 2380 that switch is the bobbin-holder itself (the metal post it is on right now!). Push the post, bobbin and all, towards the white plastic thing (sorry, but it's late and proper teminology eludes me). It should click over, and your thread should be going from the spool, around the metal button (in a figure eight fashion) and should be threaded through one of the holes in the bobbin. Now you hold the end of the thread and press the pedal, and after a short while the thread will be pulled out of your hand (or possibly not, if it's long enough). Keep going until you have enough thread on the bobbin, and cut it loose! You're done!

SOURCE: I have a white superlock 228 jaguar serger problems with right needle

Couple of things I could think of: tension disks need cleaning, there is a site that tells how to clean them, maybe 2 as I recall. Other thing is it is a much older serger, (I have one I am slowly working on to bring up to working level), so it could be that a tension spring internally has lost its tension. It might need a trip to the repair man if that is the case. Another thing is are you using correct needles for the machine? Have you changed them recently? Even new needles can be bad, so if you have to change three times to triple check it can be worth it.

Needle does not go up and down, feed dog is up


If the machine is bound up, the first thing to look for is a small peice of thread in the bobbin shuttle. Take the bobbin out lay the machine back and look very clos and 9 out of 10 times there will be a very small strand of thread in it. Now your going to look at it and say nope, no thread. Look again, it will surprise you how one small strand can bind the whole thing up.

Bobbin jumps out of place while I'm sewing and jumbles the thread. I took it to a repairman, it worked for about 3 weeks. Now, same old problem.


I had a similar problem but found it only happened when I used plastic bobbins. I've been using metal bobbins and haven't had the problem again. Hope this helps.

I recently received 2 White sewing machines: a #2380 and a #1780 Quilter's Star. With the #2380, I can't get it to sew a large(long) straight stitch, even though the stitch length is set clear to #4. At...


Re the bobbins it is the depth that sounts and some of the plastic bobbins are the same as the metal ones(I used to sell sewing machines)so as long as they are same depth when put side by side and same circumferance then another type will be fine. Ive only found 2 different depths in the plastic ones so I dont know which you have. Not sure what has happened with your stitch lentgh. Check the stitch selector is properly on a straight stitch and that the other stitches are correct. A s/mach technician may be able to alter it for you but yo can do no more on that.

PLEASE GIVE ME THE PRODUCT # FOR BOBBINS FOR WHITE MACHINE MODEL # 2037. THANK YOU


Rebecca, I don't know if you ever received a solution, but after my experience with my White 2038, I would advise you to do exactly what you said. "Throw it out". I've struggled for a week with a new machine, found parts missing after opening the box and generally feel ripped off. I am throwing mine out! I purchased a Singer yesterday and it is sewing beautifully with no problems.

Good luck.
