How do I get machine case open to take care of thread jam around spindle


Um, you cannot fill a bobbin while it is loaded in the shuttle. To fill the bobbin, you have to remove it from the machine, go through other threading sequences and wind the bobbin on the outside of the machine. If you'd provide us with the make & model of your machine, we could probably help. With the information we've been provided, there's not much we can do.

Sewing machine Singer Advance 7422, I try to fill a bobbin on the top of my machine. I put the bobbin in position and the shaft will not turn. The machine is treaded correctly and put in the right...


some machine, you have to push the bobbin winder spindle to the
right so that it will wind the bobbin, I have to on mine.
but if you've already done that then the machine needs to be checked
to see what wrong with the bobbin winder spindle

How to remove and fill bobbin


Locate the bobbin access panel to the right of the presser foot. Place thumb tip in the oval hole and pull to the left, (It might also tip up, but I doubt it.) Reach in and lift and grasp the little lever on the bobbin case, pull it out. Remove bobbin from case. Select the thread you want to fill the bobbin with. Place it on the thread spindle. Pull thread trough the small round tension disc on top of the machine and back toward the short spindle on the right top of the machine. If your bobbins have holes.. thread a hole and place the botton on that short spindle. Slide the bobbin and spindle toward the metal "fence". Loosen the hand wheel by turning the center knob counter clock wise. Grasp the little thread on the bobbin and start winding a few revolutions with you holding the thread. Stop and clip that short thread close to the bobbin then continue winding until full.

When the bobbin is full. Return the hand wheel knob to it's original position. Slide the bobbin winder spindle away from the "fence" and remove the bobbin. Place the bobbin in the case with the bobbin facing you... the thread when pulled should rotate the bobbin itself clockwise (VERY Important!) Hold the lever open and replace the bobbin.

For your convenience I have located this PDF for your machine. (be patient, it takes a while to load)

The bobbin on my kenmore sewing machine model 158.15720 won't spin to wind the bobbin. I oiled it but it didn't help. The belt is a little loose. Could replacing it help?


most machines will have a rubber o ring as part of the bobbin winding mechanism, when you engage the bobbin winder, this o-ring will move over against the main engine drive wheel and this then makes the bobbin spindle turn. So yes, you may need to replace the rubber o-ring, they can perish and wear. Called Bobbin Winder Tyre, you could try www.sewingpartsonline.com, they have loads of Kenmore models listed but can't see yours. However, if you email them, they should be able to advise what part number it is. If you start by opening up the machine case and take a look at the bobbin winder area first, you may find this rubber has split or perished.

My bobbins sometimes don't wind right. The thread gets all tangled at the bottom of the bobbin instead of winding evenly. I'm sure it's user error because sometimes it works. Hoping you can help me figure...


when the thread is on the spool pin
1.guide the thread around the bobbin winder thread guide
2.insert the thread through the hole on the bobbin, threading from the inside to the outside
put the the bobbin spindle
3.push the bobbin winder spindle to the right (if you have a electronic machine the LED display
will show SP)
4.depress the foot control, when the bobbin is fully wound, stop it, & push the bobbin spindle to the left, cut the thread & remove it from the spindle

How do I load a bobbin?


There should be a small spindle up on top near the wheel (right hand side).
Start winding the thread on by hand a few wraps to hold it in place and put the bobbin on that small spindle, making sure it is going to wind the proper way. To find out what way it will wind you can first (without the bobbin) push the spindle to the right so that it spins when the wheel turns, turn the wheel by hand for this so you can see which way it is spinning the spindle. Is it clockwise or counterclockwise? Then put your bobbin on and push it to the right so that the wheel will turn the spindle as you press the foot pedal. You should have some sort of tension clip on the top left of your machine, it looks something like the top of a big screw or may be a flat hook. Put the threat under that so that it goes directly from the spool to the bobbin, NOT through the needle. As gradually as possible wind the thread onto the bobbin but not too full, most machines will stop filling it when the bobbin is full. If yours does not, stop filling it when there is still about 1/16 th of an inch room left.

I have an older Husqvarna sewing machine (sle 6570


In the middle of the bobbin winding spindle, there is a piece we'll call a "flange". It is spring loaded but sometimes sticks. When it is in the center of the spindle it diengages the sewing machine drive system that drives the needle. Make sure it is not in the center of the flange. You can use a small screwdriver and gently press the flange outward and hopefully you may hear a small click and everything will be fine. Make sure also that the round plastic piece the flange is located in the center of, is pushed all the way to the left, (in you're sitting in front of the machine) if you pull that round platstic "knob" to the right, like you're trying to remove it from the flange, it will pop outward and engage the tranmission for sewing heavy fabrics.

Bobbin spindle won't spin


Check the bobbin winder rubber, it may be worn or broken and insufficient friction against handwheel to turn.........or a thread jam around spindle is stopping the spin. In this case, carefully unwind, DO NOT cut thread.

I am having trouble loading the bobbin case...when I load it, the needle hits metal, rather than catching the bottom thread. Please help.


When you open the front where the bobbin goes in, is the bobbin case spinning around loosley or is it fixed in position. It sounds as if it has not been put back in properly. Take it out and hold the spring clip which stops the bobbin falling out of the bobbincase. Hold it tight and put it oooover the spindle lining up the bit for the notch. Only let go when it is firmly in position. Also check your needle. Put in a new needle and make sure its in the correct way-it may be the needle which is the problem. If you took the "race" apart where the bobbin goes it may not be put back correctly and this could cause it-however-this is only the case if the flywheel won't turn.

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!
