    Singer Creative Touch 1036. Bobbin won't thread. Gears underneath are NOT cracked or borken in any way and bobbin turns, but thread doesn't always catch and will tangle up UNDER bobbin. Any thoughts as to how this can be fixed???

    I am having the same problem. It's getting stuck and all wrapped up around the bobbin. As well as when going to sew the thread brakes off and the fabric catches and goes under the plate.

Recently had same problem. Underneath the bobbin area on the bottom of the machine is a small white plastic piece that resembles a fan. Singer calls this the bobbin cam actuator. It is usually cracked along the sleeve that fits over the metal pin, bar? This is the mechanism that lifts the bobbin when it is wound. When its broken it can't lift the bobbin to be wound properly.

Bobbin won't wind on Singer futura CE-100

My singer hasn't wound bobbins for years and I don't care because I use a Side Winder bobbin winder. It's much easier than takining the thread off the machine anyway. Available from Hancock, Jo Ann or even Wal Mart for about $30.

Where can I buy more bobbins for my singer futura?

Any Singer shop sells them. Bring in a bobbin to any other shop and they probably have them as well.

Cannot thread bobbin

If I remember correctly this machine has a little arm in the bobbin case area. You will need to open the slide plate, move that arm towards the middle of the bobbin. Thread your machine as normal, take the thread going through the needle eye and wrap it around the thumb screw a couple times, then start "sewing" your bobbin should begin filling, once started, you can release the thread wrapped around the thumbscrew. Once filled, you simply close the slide plate and that moves the arm back into place and start sewing.
