Trying to fit the bobbin onto the shuttle of a Necchi 524 FB. I have instructions for a Necchi 524, but the FB is a little different. I can't find a place to latch the bobbin to.

Necchi 3537 manual is useless. How do I put bobbin shuttle hook back into the machine?

HINT: before you install the shuttle, make sure to place a drop of sewing machine oil around the outer edge of the shuttle and lightly spread it around the outer edge (you should do this about every time you change a bobbin). Sorry, you'll probably need to be familiar with removing and installing the shuttle. Have patience! Once you've done it a couple of times, you'll wonder why it was so difficult.

It usually helps if you can tilt the machine back about 45 degrees so it is supported by something (pillow, cushion) so you can get good visibility into the bobbin area.

Raise the needle so that the take-up bar is at its highest point.

Make sure the outer hinged door on the shuttle area is open. Inside that open door is a metal unit that is shaped like a "C". The shuttle makes up the other part of the "C". The two C's face each other and complete the circle. Grasp the shuttle by the projecting bobbin pin. (Perhaps the photo & videos will help you in placing the shuttle (you'll probably need to wiggle it around a little until it pops into place.) Once the shuttle has snapped into place and you've closed and latched the outer cover, you can install the bobbin case.

Why does'n the needle catch the bobbin thread on Necchi BU Nova

Your hook is moving correctly. Not all machines do a continuous circle. If it's not catching the thread, the timing is off. It's a great machine, and worth every penny to have it serviced.

It sounds like the lower shuttle is out of place. You should be able to take out the bobbin case and unlatch the shuttle. It will probably be in 2 pieces. Clean out the dust behind it and replace the shuttle pieces. You may have to fiddle with it a little to get them back in place. Then you can test it by manually turning the wheel. Make sure the bobbin is placed into the bobbin case and that the bobbin turns in the direction that you pull the thread.

Good luck.

Trying to sew straight stitch but stitch loose and lots of thread on bottom

No top tension, follow manual to thread top again and make sure tension dial is set to 5 and thread is pulled between the tension discs fully.

Problem inserting bobbin

Inserting bobbin into the bobbin case or problem inserting bobbin case into the shuttle?

Make sure the thread will feed from the bobbin clockwise and through the guide on the bobbin case.

Lift the lever on the bobbin case to hold the bobbin in place as you inset the bobbin case into the shuttle.

If the bobbin case for this machine as a "finger", this has to align with the opening in the shuttle.

If you cannot readily see this - move the bobbin case a bit to the left and right until it clicks into place.
