Mine stopped working too. Gave up and wound bobbins by hand for a while until I broke down and took the machine apart -- an ordeal to figure out. I found that a pliable ring on the winder was completely disintegrated (gummy plastic-like stuff). An online search found this -- a bobbin "tire" which I THINK is the part I need: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/bobbin-winder-tire-brother-x55238051.aspx. Hope this helps. --Also cleaned all the lint out when I had the machine opened up. They don't make it EASY!

I had the same problem. The trick is to make sure that when you put the bobbin on the winder that the notch on the bobbin clicks on the notch holder. So turn the bobbin on the winder until you hear a click or that the bobbin can not be turned. To check if the bobbin is on the holder correctly start the bobbin winder without thread. If the bobbin is engaged on the winder it will spin, if not then it is not set on the notch. I hope this helps.

I have Singer 7285QPatchwork when I try to wind a bobbin E2 error code comes up. I also notice the Thread Take-up continues to go up & down when I try to wind bobbin. HELP.


Did you push the bobbin winder shaft all the way to the right? You should feel/hear a click. You should also see 2 Cs (one backwards) in the LCD screen. Since the thread take-up lever is moving, I suspect the sewing machine isn't in the bobbin winding mode. Make sure that you are using a Class 15 J bobbin and have correctly redone the threading for the bobbin winding option.

If the bobbin winder shaft doesn't move easily or click into place, you may need to take the machine for service. The winding lever position switch/sensor or another part may be damaged inside the machine.

I hope this helps.

Bobbin winder not winding cotton on spool a part has fallen in side machine how do l take casing off Janome 480 quilter thank you


Am unable to help with your machine but you can purchase a stand-alone bobbin winder called Sidewinder for about $30. Just be sure to verify that your machine bobbins will work on it. The one I have will use either a power cord or batteries. Great little machine because it saves wear-n-tear on the machine plus you can wind bobbins without unthreading the machine.

My elna sewing machine bobbin won't spin on top to wind thread around. The fly wheel spins though...I've been putting thread on the bobbins by hand.


If the fly wheel is going around then the clutch isn't disengaged to wind the bobbin, you need to pull out the flywheel on your model to disengage the clutch for bobbin winding.

Take thread from thread spool across to bobbin winder thread guide, then back to bobbin and thread the tail through the hole on top of the bobbin. Place bobbin onto spindle on top of machine and then push it against the stop to engage the bobbin winding motor. HOld the thread tail up and start winding slowly until the bobbin core has been covered including the starting point. Stop and trim off the thread tail with scissors. COntinue winding bobbin and give the thread a nudge if needed to wind evening top middle and bottom of the bobbin. A good smooth wind is important. Also don't wind at full speed and keep an eye on the thread reel that the thread is coming off, you don't want it bouncing around as this will **** the thread and stretch then relax it affecting your bobbin wind.

Obviously if you know this and the bobbin winding mechanisim is just not working, then it will need a service/replacement by an Elna repair person.

Sears Kenmore Sewing Machine Model 385. 1254180 Bobbin Won't Wind


The winding sound is the rubber O-ring against the spinning pulley (back of hand wheel) - do not let this continue, it will wear out the O-ring.

I had the same problem and I found the shaft bushing of the winder dry and needed lubed. Use oil or spray lithium grease and it should work fine. Spin the bobbin shaft by hand (not the hand wheel) to get it freed up after oiling.

You can oil from the top and should take off the side case to clean the excess oil from the O-ring. The shaft bushing is a tight fit and any dry oil will get sticky and prevent winding.

Unable to wind bobbin on Brother Css-8150 stopped suddenly


Checking to see if in fact that the bobbin shaft is turning. Run it without any bobbin on the bobbin shaft. Make sure that it is push over in the correct position and run it. I checked on mine and it does make the whirring sound and the the shaft does spin. Also check underneath the shaft to see if there is any thread wrapped around it. ( I had problems with that in the past). I hope this helps,

Wind the Bobbin
For the usual jobs, it is the best to use a medium sized thread.
2. Disengage the flywheel by unscrewing the coupling knob as far as it will go.

3. Place the bobbin on the bobbin winder, and push the bobbin winder to the right.

4. Pull out one of the spool pins and place the spool of thread on it.

5. Pass the thread through the bobbin winder tension discs, as indicated.

6. Wind the end of the thread around the bobbin by hand, in the direction indicated.

7. Wind the bobbin, at a medium speed by pressing lightly with a finger on the spool so as to stretch the thread better and thus fill the bobbin to a maximum. The full bobbin stops automatically.

8. Re-engage the flywheel by tightening the coupling knob.

9. Cut the thread and remove the bobbin from the bobbin winder by pushing the latter to the left.
