Can't seem to wind a bobbin on Singer 7466 . - Singer 7466 Mechanical Sewing Machine

    Thank you so much for your help...but, taking note of all you said, I think it is a mechanical problem, as I have not had this problem in the past. I do have the instruction manual and I am following directions, but as I said before, it starts to wind for maybe 3 seconds, and just stops. This particular machine requires one to move the bobbin post. Thanks for trying...I do appreciate it.

HI, THERE ARE SEVERAL THINGS TO LOOK FOR WHEN YOU ARE WINDING A BOBBIN. FIRST CHECK YOUR THREAD, IS IT ON THE MACHINE GOING IN THE CORRECT DIRECTION. SECOND CHECK TO SEE IF YOU ARE THREADING THE THREAD THRU THE BOBBIN AREA ON TOP OF THE MACHINE CORRECTLY. I AM NOT FAMILIAR WITH YOUR MACHINE, BUT MOST HOME MACHINES HAVE THE BOBBIN THREADER ON TOP...THIS IS WHERE PART OF THE TENSION NEEDED COMES FROM TO WIND THE BOBBIN. NEXT, DOES YOUR MACHINE REQUIRE YOU TO LOOSEN THE TENSION ON THE WHEEL, OR DOES YOUR MACHINE HAVE YOU MOVING THE BOBBIN POST BEFORE IT WORKS. LASTLY, CHECK HOW YOU ARE ADDING YOUR THREAD TO THE BOBBIN AND PLACING IT ONTO THE BOBBIN HOLDER, IF IT IS NOT CORRECT IT WILL JUST SPIN OFF THE THREAD. I USUALLY LET THE THREAD GLIDE THRU MY FINGERS AT FIRST TO MAKE SURE I HAVE THE CORRECT TENSION. SOME MACHINES HAVE A TENSION SCREW THAT YOU CAN ADJUST THE THREAD TENSION. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A MANUAL FOR YOUR MACHINE, GO TO SINGER AND MOST LIKELY THEY WILL HAVE ONE THAT YOU CAN PURCHASE. I HAD TO BUY ONE ONCE AND IT WAS ABOUT $15.00, MAYBE THERE IS A SITE YOU CAN GET ONE FOR FREE I DON'T REALLY KNOW. HOPE THIS HELPS. JUST A SLIGHT THING NOT CORRECT AND YOUR MACHINE WILL NOT OPERATE CORRECTLY, SO IT MAYBE JUST YOU HAVE SOMETHING BACKWARDS OR YOU NEED TO LOOSEN THE FLYWHEEL OR MOVE THE BOBBIN PEG.

I have a singer 7466 and the bobbin won't load error code 88. please help!


An 88 error code is a generic one. It could mean that the needle isn't moving properly when the machine is turned on, there could be a problem at the bobbin or the computer for the machine is compromised. When did the error occur (regular sewing or bobbin winding)?

First, make sure that the needle is at the highest point with the hand wheel. Turn the machine off and then back on. Does the needle move to the side and back to the center? If so, then the problem is elsewhere. If the needle didn't move, I'd still recommend that you clean the area under the bobbin case.

If you were winding a bobbin, try a different bobbin. Check for any burs that might block smooth rotation of the bobbin. If you were doing regular sewing, also try a new bobbin. Check the bobbin case and hook areas for lint and clean them out.

If the error still persists, the machine needs to be serviced.

I hope this helps.

Code 88 starts flashing as well as all the stitching lights on the panel when I try to thread the bobbin. I can sew, that is NOT the problem, threading the bobbin is. What is Code 88? I am not interested...


Turn your machine off and leave it off. Remove all bobbins - in the machine & from the pin. Remove all thread - from threaded machine and bobbin thread path. Clip the machine thread at the spool and pull the needle thread towards yourself. Clip bobbin thread at spool and close to bobbin, then pull towards you through thread guides. This keeps the tension where it belongs. Move the bobbin winding shaft from normal sewing back to winding bobbin a couple times. It should click in place when moved to the winding position. Check to see if there is any thread that has slipped under the bottom of the bobbin and wound itself around & under the bottom of the shaft. Carefully unwind to clear. If the shaft does not easily move back to the sewing position it is probably stuck in the winding position. Don't force it, but try to get it out of the winding position. Leave it to the left in the normal sewing position (unclicked). Check to see if there is any thread caught anywhere along the path from spool to the winding pin. Pay close attention to the first thread guide and the two discs the thread slips between that control tension. Hand wind the wheel on the right towards you to raise and lower the needle a couple of times. Stop with needle in highest position. Do NOT wind hand wheel backwards (away from you). Make sure the bobbin pin is not in the winding position. Now turn on your machine. Needle should jump to default position. Move the stitch length and stitch width guides to the far right, then far left, to attain the green lights. Press the reverse stitch button to raise lower and raise the needle. It will stop in the highest position. If you still have the error code - make sure the bobbin winding pin is NOT in the winding position. Remove the needle. Lower the presser foot and run the machine without any thread a bit. If the needle bar does not go up and down most likely the bobbin pin is stuck in the winding position. If the code has cleared use your manual to carefully wind a new bobbin. Make sure you are using a 15J bobbin which this machine requires. It will not work with just any bobbin. Next, raise the presser foot then carefully thread the machine. If you don't have a manual you can download one from the Singer website. You might consider cleaning the entire machine paying special attention to the hook area and feed dogs while the power is off. If you find a lot of lint do this more frequently to prevent buildup. Take special care when replacing the bobbin care. Hope this helps. If not call Singer. It may take some time but you should be able to reach someone to help you troubleshoot. If this is an older machine I recommend taking it for repair yourself instead of sending to Singer

I am having a problem with my 7466 singer. It was working fine then I heard a clunk and now I can not get the bobbin to catch any Ideas


Could be a bent needle, try a new one after you have cleaned out the bobbin area with a brush. Then totally rethread. You can call customer service at 1-800-4singer and they can advise you further. Hopefully, it is nothing serious. Good luck.

Bobbin Problem


There should be a troubleshooting section in the manual that will direct you to what you need to do.

If you need a manual, go to the Singer Company website to download.
