I need help putting the bobbin threader back onto a Nelco JA38 sewing machine and the springs are giving me fits. Any help?


Not sure if you are having problems with the bobbin winder or threading the bobbin. This may help:

Nelco JA 38 Sewing Machine Threading Diagram

To avoid awful thread nests under the fabric, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread.

Interestingly, the bobbin threading instructions (above) show the bobbin loading into the bobbin case so it turns COUNTER-clockwise. This is the opposite of instructions for most machines. You can probably try both, the clockwise or Counter-clockwise,and see if one works better than the other.

Be sure to use fresh, good quality sewing machine oil or Tri-Flow Synthetic Oil on your machine. Open it up, while gently wiggling the handwheel, drop a couple drops of oil every place that metal rubs against metal. Avoid plastic or rubber parts! You may even find little round holes throughout that are oil ports. Be sure to get the area around the needlebar, presser foot lifter, feed dogs, the bobbin area, and all the dial and selector mechanisms.

You can find manuals for your machine online (not free!).

How do I replace the bobbin hook after cleaning my Brother XL-3030?


you may be able to enlarge the manual page:

Brother XL 3030 User Manual Page 60

The hook (half-moon piece) needs to go in first, but you may need to wiggle it to seat it and then hold it while you fasten the outer retaining ring (hook race). Flip the levers up to hold the ring in place. Then install the bobbin case.

How to Clean and Maintain your Sewing Machine at Home Front Loading Bobbin

FWIW, my machine oiling instructions say to apply a drop of good quality oil on the outer edge of the hook race lip where the hook rubs as it turns. But, your manual should explain where to oil.

I cannot locate my instruction manual am having problems inserting a new needle. I am also having miner problems with loading the bobbin. Please could you advise


Needle insert: The flat part of the needle goes to the back usually.
a. Loosen the needle screw and push the needle inside the hole w/flat to the back.
b. If it doesn't seem to go in then turn the needle slightly like a screw while pushing upwards.

Bobbin insert:
Make sure you turn the hand wheel until the hook (rotating thing under bobbin that is sharp) is to the back or upwards if it is a side bobbin.
Follow instructions by diagram. They are very similar for most machines.

I need to know how to thread my tcm sewing machine as i have no instructions as it was given to me thank you


I do not know this model but why don't you visit www.about.sewing.com, there is good general threading information there as well as care and maintenance tips for sewing machines. Older machines need oiling, many modern ones have nylon parts or oiling wicks so not required so often. If you can see red marks on parts of the machine, these are usually oiling spots.

sewing machines are usually horizontal top loading bobbins where the bobbin goes into a bobbin holder and the thread gets clicked into a tension spring.

Or vertical front loading bobbins inside a removable bobbin case with a tension spring on the outside of the bobbin case.

Top threading up is usually through a number of eyelets, through a tension device of some sort, then down to the needle.

Remember, the scarf (cut out) of the needle should face to the back of the machine. Most domestic sewing machines use 130/704H needle system and the needle has a flat shank which goes to the back in the needle holder so you get this right.

You can also try www.sewingpartsonline.com or www.sewusa.com, both list some instruction manuals and threading diagrams for some makes and models.

The stitches are not interlocking, the top line looks OK but the bottom line is a straight thread, I would be grateful for your help. Thank you, I've lost the manual Brother PS33 quick system


Tension issues, sounds like the bobbin thread is not under tension at all. Take it out, and rethread the bobbin into the tension device. Sorry, don't know if your machine has a bobbin case (front loading) or is a top loading bobbin directly into a bobbin holder.

You might be able to get a threading diagram from www.sewusa.com or try www.sewing.about.com for general diagrams and tips.

Check what number your top tension dial is set to also.

Good idea to obtain another manual as you'll need to refer to it for maintenance of your machine as well as general use.

I need instructions threading the bobbin on Kenmore sewing machi


I believe it is a seperate bobbin case, hold the open part of the bobbin case towards you with the finger at the top, hold the bobbin case by the latch, drop the bobbin in so it turns anti clockwise and pull the thread through the slot about 6 inches, keep hold of the latch, and pop the bobbin case in

I just bought a white sew ez and am unable to wind the bobbin following the instruction manual. The instructions say to pull the thread down through the clamper (what's a clamper; it's not shown in the...


If you look on the top of the machine, there should be a little round metal disk near the far left side. That's the clamper it's talking about, also known as the bobbin winder tension. As for the hole in the bobbin, you can use any of the holes. I'm assuming you're using a metal class 15 bobbin, the plastic class 15 bobbins only have 1 small hole on each end. Both will work with your machine.
