Bobbin stuck in case - forgot to use the bobbin hook cover

I removed the bobbin, and then the bobbin case to get out a stuck thread, then inadvertently put the bobbin back in the case without pushing the bobbin hook cover back. Now I can't get the bobbin out of the bobbin case.

SOURCE: bobbin case is disassembled. how do I put it back together?

It should be in your manual.... but if you don't have one, I'm gonna try this out. I don't know the official names, so bear with me.

0e32874.jpg

There should be two plastic arm-lookin things that are turnable. Make sure these are turned outwards.

44a455e.jpg


You should have three silver pieces. The one you need first is a half-moon looking thing with a knob comin out of the middle. (it also has some holes in it)

1b56518.jpg

If you turn the big knob on the right hand side, there should be a moving piece on the inside of the bobbin case.

9f56fa0.jpg

The half moon needs to fit in with that piece. Don't force anything cause we don't want the machine to break. >< The knob thing needs to be facing the outside, otherwise it's not gonna go in at all.

4c32e5e.jpg

Once you get the half-moon thing in there, you have two more left. There's a big circle. WOO! CIRCLES! ANYWHO, The big silvery circle.. it has a knotch in it, and a little pokey-outie thing comin' out of it.

61f6c9e.jpg

It needs to be positioned so that the knotch (on the inside of the circle) is up and the pokey-outie piece (on the outer side of the circle) is on the bottom. On your machine, there should be a place where the pokey-outie piece would fit perfectly into a little hole-type-thing. Put it in. :O

297f9a7.jpg

Now it's time to move those little black plastic arms towards the center. On your circle, there should be little grooves that they fit right on top of. ^_^

bb79c5d.jpg

The only silver piece left should be the actual bobbin case deal. This should be a smaller circle with a movable arm and a silver thing pokin' out of it. (I told you, I'm bad at names!) Before you put this guy in, we need to have your plastic bobbin threaded. (I'm assuming this has already been done, correct me if I'm wrong.... they also have pre-threaded bobbins for sale, but hey, whatever works.)

f756bb2.jpg

Your bobbin needs to fit inside this last piece. (my first bobbin didn't, and I freaked out and ran to my dad... LOL) You need to make sure there is a trail of thread coming out of your bobbin that's about two to three inches long. Place your bobbin in the silver guy and there /should/ be a little niche where you can play with the thread and pull it through the silver guy's parts. (Your thread may break, don't worry, just try again)

5ec5f6a.jpg

When you move the thread around, it should come out where the little arm that sticks out is. Keep the 2-3 inch trail goin' on, you'll need it. Remember that first half-moon silver guy? Well, we're gonna stick our little assembly onto his pokey-outie piece.

ed83178.jpg

The silver arm-thing on our assembly needs to go into the knotch that's in our circle, and push in so it clicks. (Sometimes mine clicks twice...) Make sure you have that trail of thread, and go ahead and flip the white plastic up, because you're DONE assembling it.

a3c219b.jpg

I'm going to assume you have your top thread in already (again, correct me if I'm wrong..) make sure that your top thread is through the hole in the needle, otherwise we're thoroughly screwed. Pull that thread until you have another 2-3 inch tail, and twist the big white knob on the right side of your machine (same one as before...) TOWARDS you. KEEP HOLDING your top thread, otherwise it'll disappear into the abyss that is your bobbin assembly.

549cb5e.jpg

When you turn the knob towards you, your needle should dip down into the abyss and come back up- with your bottom thread! HUZZAH! it SHOULD be a loop around your top thread. (I'd use contrasting colors for practice.. so you know what it'll look like)

716685d.jpg

The manual says to "grab the bottom thread" but seriously, I can't get me fingers down in there, so I just slide some scissors under the foot and between the two sides of the loop, and just slide 'em left. usually works just fine. Unless my tail for the bottom thread is too short, cause then it'll be hard to grab. You should be good to go!

2b8b82f.jpg

I know this is pic heavy and kind of long, but I like to provide as much info as possible! Let me know if it helped!!

SOURCE: bobbin thread won't catch with needle thread

check that the needle is in the right way round i.e. with cut out on the needle facing into the machine. if this is fine then check that as the needle comes back up from the lowest point that it goes to, that the point on the bobbin case passes just above the hole in the needle, i.e. in the middle of the cut out.(if not it needs re timing) if threaded a small loop should appear at this point for the bottom bobbin to catch if not slacken the top thread and try again.

After cleaning the hook system which for which a problem was indicated., it still wouldn't work.


1. Clean the hook area again. Put one drop of oil on the race that the bobbin case rides on.
2. Make sure the holder on the bobbin case area is held secure while it is turning. It will need to be adjusted if the bobbin case wants to fall off of the race or has a lot of room when you move the handwheel back and forth. Test this by turning the hand wheel back and forth.
3. Once this is finished thread the machine through a new needle. a. Place the tension on four.
b. Now, turn the hand wheel towards you and hold the thread in back of the needle.
4. While doing this watch to see if the bobbin thread is pulled by the hook around the needle thread without getting stuck. (Needle now in rising motion still under plate.)
**If the bobbin thread cannot be pulled above the plate try to increase the top tension a small amount.
**If it still can't be pulled above the plate then loosen the bobbin a bit.
This may take a little while to get it right. Always, try to adjust from the top tension first.

The panel lights up and then all stitches blink and there is a beep. No power and presser foot does not work.


1. Remove the bobbin and bobbin case. Try checking to see if the machine will set up without power loss.
If it stays on you need to adjust the bobbin case so it is just tight enough to keep it from spinning. Put the bobbin case in. There are screws on top of the case to loosen. Move the hand wheel each direction and see it move. The screws will allow a bracket to move to a point which will prevent the bobbin case from spinning.
Replace the bobbin. Check the tension. (See instruction)
2. While rotating the hand wheel check the bobbin to see if the needle thread moves across the top of the bobbin without getting stuck. Also, pay attention if the needle hits the sides.
3. If the thread gets stuck the bobbin case will need to be loosened about one hair strand distance.
4. If power loss is still a loss check good connection to the socket. Sometimes making a small bend will correction.
5. Check the connection to the machine. If it is loose you may need to make a very small bend on the connection. They have to be tight.
6. The same thing has to be done with the foot controller.
See attachment for tension adjustment.

The needle is stuck in the Shark 612C model sewing machine, any solutions?


Try http://www.fixsewingmachine. com I also suggest that you clean bobbin case. Now, when needle is "stuck", this requires patience and care in "jiggling" the hand wheel to and fro until needle point begins to clear the jammed area. Carefully snip one thread that moves up under needle and jiggle hand wheel by carefully turning hand wheel toward you to see if you can move the take-up lever all the way up to the UP position. Look at bobbin case area and remove bobbin. Cut bobbin thread and remove bobbin case. Sweep gently with brush underneath case and carefully, gently sweep over the feed dogs, poking very ends of brush bristles into "teeth" area to remove lint, fuzz ball/s, and any loose thread/s. Raise presser foot, remove (possibly bent) needle. Insert new needle of appropriate size for fabric weight. Make sure needle pushed all the way up into needle bar groove, at side to back. Keep presser foot RAISED while rethreading. This allows thread to locate tension discs, and HOLD THREAD TAUT. Replace bobbin, making sure thread is EVENLY distributed on it. Imablanced bobbins cause jams, and bobbins with burrs and scratches can real havoc as well as the hook part of the shuttle where the bobbin fits. Smooth such areas with emery cloth carefully, ever so gently. Hope my suggestions are a solution for you. Jimmy

How do you load the bobbin properly?


Hi there,

Well you may please follow the steps below -
1. Remove the bobbin from the sewing machine. Note: whether you have a drop-in, front or side-loading bobbin on your sewing machine. A drop in bobbin will load from the top, may be via a removable bobbin case cover near the machine-fed dogs. A side or front loading bobbin needs to be loaded into a removable bobbin case under the machine.
2. Choose the right size bobbin for the sewing machine.
3. Wind thread onto your bobbin. Your sewing machine should have a standard thread spool to hold the thread and a short, squat post wide enough for a bobbin.
4. Put the thread and empty bobbin into position on your sewing machine. Wrap the thread around the bobbin to start it. On most machines, disengage the needle by turning the smaller hand-wheel on the machine toward you. Push the bobbin post into position, securing the bobbin into place. Press gently down. Thread should begin to wind neatly onto your bobbin.
5. Break the thread, push the bobbin post back into an inactive position and remove the bobbin. Tighten the hand-wheel. Thread your sewing machine again if necessary before loading the bobbin.
6. Remove the bobbin case cover and put the bobbin into position. The thread should slide through a catch on the bobbin case and up through the cover.
7. Access the bobbin case for a front or side mount bobbin. Lift the catch and remove the removable bobbin holder. Put the bobbin into the holder and run the thread through the holder, bringing it to the front. Lift the catch and slide the bobbin holder back into the case. Hold your needle thread gently forward with your left hand and turn the hand-wheel. The needle thread will pass down into the machine and catch a loop of the bobbin thread. Pull this loop up and slide both threads to the back before beginning to sew.
Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

The casing that the bobbin sits in is out how do I put it back in. The Bobbin holder below the tension feet is out and so is the bobbin how do I set it back in with out undoing the two latches on the side...


put the bobbin in its case then pull some thread out and pass it thru the bobbin case slot and under the tension spring .. put the bobbin and case over the shaft that is in the main unit .. the open side of the case goes in first .. make sure the bobbin doesnt fall out .. rotate the bobbin case until its finger lines up with the notch in the main case .. the bobbin case should latch in place on the shaft notch .. place the top thread under and to the back of the pressure foot then turn the machine one turn .. that will loop the top thread around the bottom (bobbin) thread ... now use a card or screwdriver to push both threads from under the pressure foot toward the back of the machine ..

Kenmore 385 Series with drop in bobbin


it might be that a piece os the pin is still stuck in the bobbin race. try taking the screws out of the throat plate and lifting it up. use a little brush to make sure allthe lint and any pin pieces are out from around the feed dogs. put the black piece back in place before you replace the throat plate. If the black piece doesn't stay in place i doubt that it was in correctly. hope this works.
