Usually a sewing machine has a second position for the bobbin pin (where you place the bobbin to wind & fill with thread). If the bobbin is set to automatically turn by the manufacturer check to see if the pin moves into a second position indicated by a slot in the cover.

Bobbin win der not spinning


What sewing machine are you having problems with? The bobbin tire is often the cause of the bobbin winder not to spin. Most machines this part is around a dollar and every sewing machine store will have one.

Hand wheel won't spin?


Something is binding up inside. Clean and check under the presser foot and bobbin area. Really examine under there... look for threads wrapped around and in between moving parts. Also check in the slot for the take up lever... sometimes threads get balled up inside there can cause problems.

could also be a bent upper arm inside the machine (lets hope not) Get professional help if cleaning doesn't free it up.

Threading bobbin singer athena 2009


Sorry... hate to say it but modern home singers are $%#&*@.

Have you tried a new bobbin? If the "spindle" spins... the bobbin should spin. Maybe your bobbin is busted or something?

My bobbin won't catch on the bobbin winder, the metal post spins but the plastic singer style bobbin won't spin with it. What's wrong?


The bobbin may be stripped, or the bobbin winder might be stripped; try it with a different bobbin, to rule out the bobbin being the issue; if that doesn't work, look closely at the bobbin winder to see if it has been damaged. You may be able to adjust it's shape with a pliers

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 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.

Filling a new bobbin on my machine. It gets very tangled...


I think the bobbin filler is on the top of the machine, on the right. You bobbin goes on the post and then slides to the right to engage.

There should be a round metal guide on the top of the machine. The thread should go from the spool, around this guide, and then to the bobbin.

Your bobbin should have a hole or slot to put the thread through to get it started. You can hold onto the thread for the first second or two and then let go.

The foot pedal that makes the needle go will also make your bobbin spin.

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.
