These machines are known to freeze up in the needle bar crank, even when only a couple of hours old. If it is less than a year old, a Brother certified service center will fix it under warranty.

SOURCE: Broken needle threader?

Hi - welcome to FixYa. I have this machine, and unfortunately, the cassettes can break. If the threader worked when you first got your machine, I would suggest buying a new cassette (even if your threader is working). A second cassette is very handy because you can thread your next color in the extra cassette before the machine stops for the next color change - when the machine does stop, just put in the second cassette, and thread the other with the next color - speeds things up alot. And, if one of the cassettes does break, you aren't sitting in a puddle waiting for a new one.. You can find the thread cassettes for sale on a variety of sites - this is where I buy mine:

http://webstore.quiltropolis.net/stores_app/Browse_dept_items.asp?Store_id=492&page_id=17

Some of the 270Ds came with a spool pin - look in your manual for a picture and for the instructions for installing and using the spool pin. You can use it for spool of thread that are too large for the cassette and I think you can leave it installed on your machine all the time. If you don't have your manual, leave a comment and I'll look mine and check the instructions.

Hope this helps. If you have a minute, a rating (good or bad) tells me if the information or solution I provide is helpful to anyone who visits FixYa.

If you would like me to write a tip on salvaging an embroidery project that has been pulled into a birdsnest, leave a quick comment and I'll add the tip. Thanks everybody, and good luck. Please feel free to comment if you need more help or have more questions.

some machines have a presser foot sensor or switch which prevents the machine sewing if the foot is not down.

if your presser foot is down and you still cannot sew the switch or switch actuator is most likely damaged. you will require a tech to repair this.

SOURCE: Bobbin won't come up!!!!!

This is going to sound silly, but take out the needle and check that the flat side of the needle is facing the way the instruction books says it's supposed to. Unless the flat side of the needle is facing where it's supposed to for your machine (usually--but not always--to the rear, away from you), the upper thread will not make a loop.

(Cost me $85.00 to figure this one out.)


Happy sewing!

How do i disconect the drive to wind a bobbin


To "disconnect" means the sewing needle and feed dog is not functional if I understand your issue.
1. Disconnect: On the hand wheel there is a small outside ring in the center. Loosen it by turning towards yourself.
2. Take the thread from the sewing spool to the front gadget (round tension) and run around it in a figure eight appearance and run it to the bobbin.
3. Place the thread to enter the bobbin in the center with part going upwards into one of the holes to temporarily hold the thread until the bobbin is revolving. The bobbin must be pushed to the right to get the bobbin revolving.

When I wind a bobbin, it makes a screeching noise and the needle goes up and down. What step am I missing ?


On the right side is a big wheel and in the middle a smaller one. You need to unlock the smaller wheel so that the needle mechanism does not run when re-winding a bobbin. You need to use both hands to do it. Hold the bigger wheel and then loosen the inner wheel anti clock wise. Once you have finished loading your bobbin you need to tighten the inner wheel again for the machine to be fully functional again.

HOW TO I WIND BOBBIN ON SINGER 347


If you mean the Singer Style Mate 347, open the face plate and remove the old bobbin. Then, the first step is to hold the hand wheel and loosen the stop-motion screw inside the hand wheel. (Keep the hand wheel from turning with one hand and turn the stop-motion screw towards the front of the machine.) Place your empty bobbin (hole away from the machine) on the spindle near the bobbin winder switch. Feed the thread from the spool on the spool pin through the eyelet on the top of the machine (near the top thread take up) and then down to and around the bobbin tension disc below the on-off power switch. Pass the thread through from the inside of the bobbin to the outside of the bobbin. Move the bobbin winder switch to On and hold onto the end of the thread. Start the machine and let a few winds get placed on the bobbin then stop for a minute. Cut the thread near the bobbin. Restart and continue winding more thread onto the bobbin until you have enough thread or the bobbin is full (it will stop automatically). Move the bobbin winder switch to off and tighten the stop-motion screw.

For pictures, see pages 6-7 in the manual. It's available as a PDF here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/9b8c1ca7584c2bea7837ca4bf5338af7f1b5380e.pdf . (These are pages 8-9 of the PDF.)

I hope this helps.

Thread a bobbin on a 5825c


If you mean the Singer 5285C, the manual is available from Singer here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/449_5_6_8_10_slide.pdf . The diagram for winding the bobbin is on page 14 and inserting the bobbin is on page 15.

I'll attempt to walk through the steps. Push in on the indent on the hand wheel to lock the needle in the current position (note rotate the needle up first). Then with a spool on the spool pin and the cap securely holding the spool on the pin, snap the thread through the thread guide post (near the center back of the top of the machine). Then wind the thread clockwise through the bobbin tension guide (towards the center front of the top of the machine). Next run the thread through the hole in the bobbin (inside to outside). Place the bobbin on the bobbin spindle on the front of the machine near the right hand side of the machine. Hold onto the thread end at the bobbin and start pushing down of the foot controller. Fill the bobbin to the amount of thread that you need, or until it stops. Cut the thread going from the spool to the bobbin.. Remove the bobbin from the spindle and trim the thread end that is sticking through the hole in the bobbin. Press the hand wheel disc on the side opposite from the indent.

Inserting the bobbin requires you to lift the presser foot and have the needle in the highest position. Slide open the face plate and remove the empty or wrong color bobbin. With the hole in the bobbin up, pull about 4" of thread off the bobbin. Place the bobbin in the bobbin case and hold it down lightly with a finger. Guide the thread through the notch near the front of the bobbin case. Then lead the thread down into the slot on the left and then around the second notch. The thread should be heading towards the center of the bobbin (left to right). Pull the thread diagonally back to the back of the machine and slide the bobbin cover closed. The thread should be coming up through the opening between the cover and the needle faceplate. To pull up the bobbin thread, thread the needle and then hold onto this top thread. Rotate the hand-wheel towards you until the needle rises above the needle plate. Gently tug on the top thread to bring up the loop of thread. Separate the needle thread from the bobbin thread with your fingers. Bring the top thread through the left side opening in the presser foot and then pull both threads to the back of the machine.

I hope this helps.

My Machine Won't Continuously Sew.


I looked through an online copy of your instruction manual and I don't see a guide which says what that symbol means. To me it means that the upper thread isn't threaded properly. Try one more time to rethread the upper thread but make sure your pressure foot is in the UP position. You may also want to use a piece of unwaxed dental floss and see if you can clean between the tension discs.

I went to Singer for you and found this bit of "help" Perhaps this will help you get back to sewing. It's worth a try.

"
You may have accidentally lowered the buttonhole lever located just to the left of the needle bar. To make sure it is in the correct position for sewing, place your finger under the lever and push up.
Also make sure the needle is set at the highest position and the bobbin winding spindle has been pushed back to the left or the machine will keep beeping every time you try to sew.
NOTE: To set the needle at the highest position, turn the hand wheel TOWARDS you, until the needle moves to the highest position. Finally, push the reverse button a couple of times, this will reset the machine.
If none of the troubleshooting techniques above solved the issue, please contact a SINGER Service Center to have your machine serviced."

Good luck

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

    How do you adjust the bobbin


    Hello

    Set the tension on the sewing machine for the weight of the material you want to sew. The tension setting shows in the stitch on the material. Use the chart on the machine that matches types of stitches with suggested material tensions. An example of this is, the stitch to sew jean material is different than the stitch to sew silk.

    Take the bobbin and wind the thread around it. Make sure the bobbin is empty and don't fill it too full of thread. A bobbin filled too full won't stay tightly spun.

    Thread the string evenly on the bobbin. Move the thread back and forth evenly and in layers that are level. Many Singer sewing machines have a bobbin winder on the top of the sewing machine, and the consistency of how it threads can save you frustration later.

    Find the hole on the bobbin that is located near the inside spindle of the bobbin. Take the thread sitting on the sewing machines spool and insert the thread in the hole from inside the bobbin to the outside. Set the threaded bobbin on the spool designated for spinning on the top of the sewing machine for some Singers.

    Turn the side drive wheel slowly until the threaded bobbin has a layer or two of thread on it. Push down on the drive peddle and fill the bobbin, but don't thread it to the very edge. If the bobbin is too full the thread will release erratically. Cut the thread from the spool.

    Drop the bobbin into the bobbin case under the area where the needle sews the material. Close the case and turn by hand the side wheel drive until the bobbin threads into the sewing machine. You can tell when the bobbin is threaded by the tiny piece of thread that juts out of the bobbin case where the needle goes up and down.

    Grab the thread with your fingers and pull it out approximately 4 inches. Your bobbin is now spun and threaded.
