The bobbin doesn't turn on the winder, looks like the spring slips.

SOURCE: My bobbin winder stopped working on my Brother

I think that I would call Brother at 1-877-276-8437 and ask them if this is a warranty issue. They may have a quick fix for you.

Bobbin not turning when winding on, please help. It is an Elna 3800FA model. thanks.

Here is a good place to watch to see if you have been doing this right to begin with.
If you don't accomplish winding here is a possible fix. On the top of the machine there are screws to hold it on. Once you remove the top look where the winder comes out. Look and see the tire (rubber round piece). If it is worn replace it. To replace just remove and replace like a rubber band. There is a spring that holds the arm to the right. The spring must be connected and strong enough to cause tension of the tire to the hand wheel. Always make sure the bobbin is the right size also.

The bobbin winder turns left to right with no resistant. The spring came off which was attached to the bobbin winder attachment. How do I put the spring back on? Thanks.

You may have to take it to a repair service.

In the meantime, for ~$30, you can purchase a stand-alone bobbin winder (Sidewinder) at the local fabric store (JoAnn's or Hancocks) or even on

My bobbin winder on my singer 9015 won't wind the bobbin its trying but won't turn

Remove the top lid.
The bobbin winder on the back has a tire on it that rubs against the hand wheel. Replace the tire if it is worn . Check the spring pressure that causes the tire to stay against the hand wheel. It has to be a good spring. If it is week replace it.

I have a IZEK singer sewing machine, I wound 3 bobbins with it and when I went back to sew it would not work

Sandy, I'm not familiar with IZEK machines, but it sounds like the bobbin winder has not correctly disengaged. Put it back into bobbin winding mode and run it (no need to wind a bobbin, just check that the bobbin winder turns), then stop and disengage the bobbin winder and try sewing again. Hope this solves it for you. If it won't turn the bobbin winder either then it may have slipped or broken the drive belt and you will need to take it to your local sewing centre.

How do I fix my bobbin winder?

1. Take the top off.
2. Check to see if the bobbin winder has pressure as you move it back and forth. There should be. If not then check for a spring connected to the bobbin and reset it. There will be some kind of post to hook it to.
3. Place the bobbin winder in the "off" position and put the top lid back on.
4. Without putting the screws back in move the bobbin winder to the "on" position and to the "off" position.
5. There should be pressure either way you move the winder.
6. Loosen the hand wheel handle.
7 With the bobbin winder in the "go" position use your foot pedal to make sure it revolves.
8. Replace the top.

My bobbin won't catch on the bobbin winder, the metal post spins but the plastic singer style bobbin won't spin with it. What's wrong?

The bobbin may be stripped, or the bobbin winder might be stripped; try it with a different bobbin, to rule out the bobbin being the issue; if that doesn't work, look closely at the bobbin winder to see if it has been damaged. You may be able to adjust it's shape with a pliers

How to fix bobbin winding

. Put the spring on the hole that the bobbin winder fits into. Now put the bobbin winder in, but don't tighten the screw- just turn it once or twice. Put the straight projection of the spring on the right side of the bobbin winder. Start to tighten the screw. Before you get the screw too tight, pull the downward projecting side of the spring over the housing of the machine so that it is pressing on the inside of the machine creating a push to the left. Center the circular part of the spring underneath the screw and the bobbin winder and tighten up.

Problems winding bobbins on my singer 4622 sewing machine

I have two possible solutions:
1. you have the wrong bobbin and it doesn't grip the winder.
2. the small spring on the winder spindle is missing or bent, it is what applies pressure to the bobbin for winding.

good luck!

I am trying to understand the troubles.. it that the bobbin winder will not fully engage to spin and wind to fill a new bobbin ?

Provided the engaging spring for the bobbin winder is in good order, the replacement of the winder rubber is a simple procedure if you have a top cover that is easily removed to gain access...just pop off the old one and replace......a short term quick fix may even be to turn the old one over.

Use the old one as a sample and take to any reputable repair shop, they ought to have a variety of winder rubbers to suit most brands, & a quick phone call may save fuel if you want to be certain.

....if, however, you have a 2 piece moulded case, access is very difficult and not something recommended for the uninitiated......there are numerous concealed screws and plastic clips which break easily, so best to have someone qualified do a full service at the same time if you haven't had one done for a while, then you are sure of a good job and a revitalised machine.
