Bobbin race keeps popping out of place

I have removed the bobbin case in order to vacuum around the race area. The manual says to insert bobbin case so that projection on bobbin case aligns with the spring. I have done that.

SOURCE: bobbin case is moving out of place

I was having the same problem with my machine and finally the spring broke. I couldn't find any parts for this so my husband made me a new spring out of a coke can! LOL!! Anyway, he messed with it for a while and it kept doing it. He figured out that it was not the spring but the other piece under the spring was not pushed up far enough to keep the bobbin case in place so he took a screw driver and pushed it forward toward the bobbin case and now my bobbin case does not move!! And the machine is sewing perfect! At least for now. Anyway, it's not the spring or the thread adjusting screw!

SOURCE: Needle thread getting caught in bobbin are on Brother Cs-100

I don't know if this is any help, but I would suggest taking it in to a repair store. So here is a way to find places that repair brothers machines. The place near me has done a great job both times I've gone in. Also they usually don't charge for labor, just parts. If they charge for labor it probably won't be much.

SOURCE: Bobbin Case

ok Sim this is a bit tricky but not to tricky first turn the handwheel toward you until the hook is at one o clock postion then slide the case without the bobbin in into the hook area you may have to work the handwheel back and forth alittle but it should slide in just remember that the case should ride in the rim. also take the needle out first that way you wont get stuck trust me it happiens.

SOURCE: thread knotting around bobbin case

hello, I had the exact same problem and could not find the solution until i took my machine to my sewing sensei and i solved my tedious problem. It was actually not a tension problem at all but a threading problem. Make sure you have threaded your bobbin correctly and that when you pull on the bobbin thread that the bobbin turns the right way. (mine must spin anti clockwise to work)  Make sure that when you pull up the bobbin thread using the needle that it is not over the feed dogs connective bar but under it. A big problem when the thread gets caught around the bobbin case wheel is that the thread is looped around the feed dogs once and that causes the thread to get caught around the bobbin wheel. In conclusion, thread the bobbin correctly and read over your instruction book before spending the money to get it fixe in s shop.

Bobbin case is stuck in hook race cover. The bobbin case release lever doesn't seem to be working properly, and case won't pop out of hook race.


1. Try to get the hook towards the front.
2. Remove the bottom.
3. From the back of the hook you will need a wide item to go through the hole of the hook. This is so that you can tap it while it is pushing the bobbin case.
4. You may add a little extra oil to help.
5.. Be patient so that you don't bend the hook or the race.
Because the bobbin case is in at an angle it will have to be forced out. Try to see which way it is cocked so that you can place your tool against it while tapping it.

Where to oil my singer 2263 ?


The 2263 only needs oil on the hook race (below the bobbin case). The complete cleaning procedure for this area is, with the needle fully up, remove the bobbin case and rotate the arms that hold the hook outwards. Remove the hook cover and the hook. Wipe the area under the hook cover and hook with a soft cloth. Put 1-2 drops of sewing machine oil just to the right of the center of this area. Rotate the hand wheel until the hook race is on the left side of the bobbin area. Then replace the hook and hook cover. Snap the arms back towards the center and insert the bobbin in the bobbin case.

With the bobbin out and the needle up, you should also unscrew the faceplate and wipe the feed dogs with your machine brush. (For best results, clean this before you oil. If you do not do this first, you may brush lint and bits of thread into the hook race and risk jamming this part.)

For pictures, see http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1213_oiling-2263.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I have a Brother SE400 on which I was embroidering last night. The top thread was being sucked into the bobbin case and wrapped around the race. Which cause my needle to jam and then bend. After freeing...


Are you certain that you removed all of the thread from around the bobbin? Is the bobbin locked into place. The latch could be worn letting the bobbin case wonder out of place.

Bobbin case making noises and bobbin thread keeps breaking the material also pukkers up underneath


Do you have a manual for this machine? You need to follow the cleaning instructions and remove the needle plate, and clean under the bobbin holder. I've attached an image from my Janoma 6500 manual, it looks very similar to this Elna so I'm thinking its the same design bobbin and race. There may be a little triangular shaped tool in your kit but any short flat blade screwdriver will remove the two setscrews. (always good idea to unscrew off the pressure foot and take out the needle first so you've got room).

PLEASE NOTE: If you've never pulled this bobbin area apart before, good idea to snap pics with your digital camera as you go to refer to and for reference next time!!

This uncovers the bobbin holder area, you'll see there is a black plastic holder which your bobbin goes into which has the tension device on the side and this then sits inside an outer metal casing which is the hook race. The bobbin holder is held there by a magnet underneath it and sits up against another little stopper. Look at the bobbin case and the stopper, there should be two red marks that must line up. Are they???

If the answer is no, then you need to remove the bobbin case, clean out any lint and fluff using your little brush that came with the machine, and you may also have pieces of thread caught in here too. Once clean, place the bobbin case back into the outer surround, under the other piece and lining up the two red marks. This is where photos are so helpful.

Now replace the needle plate and screws, pressure foot, pop in a new needle and thread everything up again.

If the thread continues to catch then you may have managed to damage the bobbin case; as they are plastic if they move out of position the needle can catch and burr or pierce them. If this has happened you could try to smooth out the burring with an emery board or similar. Or you may need to replace it if damaged badly. I've changed mine twice so far because I've pierced it with the needle several times.
I hope that this helps you out, good luck with your machine.tally_girl_3.jpg

Can't reinsert bobbin holder


You may not have the bobbin case seated properly in the bobbin well. Make sure the flat edges go underneath the metal flanges that are there to hold it in. I'm attaching photos of a similar problem I answered earlier that might help you understand how it goes in.

Below are the directions I sent with the photos...I hope this helps you! Good luck!

"This type of case can be a pain. First in photo 1, on the silver flange marked in a red circle there is a rectangular hole marked with a green circle. using a flat head screwdriver, insert into the rectangle and turn to the right. This should move the flange tongue marked with a blue circle towards the back white wall of the bobbing well. In Photo 2 take the black bobbin case and place in the bobbin well area marked with the pink spiral. Tilt the case slightly to insert the flat tongue marked with an orange X on the black bobbin case under the flange marked with an orange X in the bobbin well. Now let the black bobbin case sit in the bobbin well marked with the pink spiral. Now in Photo 3, you want to turn the black bobbin case to the right so the flat tongue marked with the orange X will go underneath the flange marked with an orange X. The other flat area marked with a purple X on the black bobbin case should line up with the purple X in the bobbin well. Once the black bobbin case is seated in, repeat the steps from Photo 1 in reverse to get the silver flange back over the bobbin case to hold it in place. I hope you can understand my directions and I hope this helps! Good Luck!"

Singer model 2732


It is either inserted incorrectly or the bobbin case needs replacing. Check the bobbin case by running finger tip around the outside of case, if rough spot needs replace. There is a ltch that is spring loaded you must hold back with small bladed screwdriver while inserting case for proper placement
