Question about Yamata FY700 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I have a singer 9410 - and the plastic part that the bobbin thread fits into (part no. 14) has come loose from the machine. I am not all that mechanical unfortunately haha. When I try to re-insert it it seems loose and it does not stitch correctly. I think I did not put it in right. Seems like some of it must go under the metal plate but I am not sure which part or how to put it in correctly. This must sound retarded. But please help. Thanks!
I had the same problem and after looking on here and finding no answer I went back to my machine and found out what the problem was...ok, where the bobbin case sets in,the metal plate beside it needs to be fitted right close to the bobbin case, so loosen the screws(just two of them) that are in the plate(DO NOT REMOVE JUST LOOSEN) and slide the metal plate over some just enough to fit snug...NOT TOO TIGHT... if its seems to sew too tight loosen it a bit It worked for me, GOOD LUCK

I think I know where the loose bobbin case problem in the 9410 comes from. Looking down at the bobbin case, at about 4 o'clock, is a little metal loop on the plate it sits against (you may need a flashlight to see it). This loop on the plate engages a spur on the case. If the loop is not adjusted properly, and does not engage the spur, the case jumps out. The loop is controlled by the first screw to the right of it. That said, I am not sure what the proper adjustment is. I have been loosening the screw, resetting the loop in different ways, and playing with the settings. It seems to work now.

For those who are having problems with the bobbin thread bunching and looping who have checked that all the parts are in place and that the tension is set correctly be sure that you have the correct type of bobbin. There are two types of Singer bobbins that look very similar, however, one is slightly taller than the other. The 9410 uses the shorter bobbin (I think it is the class 66) and if you use the taller one the bobbin will not be able to function correctly which will cause tension problems.

I have the same problem. I took my machine to a sewing repair place and they think that there is a problem with the part. it should sit snug, and it seems to have come loose. if it is loose, it will not work properly and excess fabric will collect beneath the plastic plate. i am trying to contact singer directly, but haven't been able to get through yet.

SOURCE: Singer 9410 Bobbin
Update: Today I took my machine in to get serviced - they replaced the metal bobbin I was using with a plastic one, that was a little less rattley inside the bobbin case, replaced the needle with a new, universal one, and changed out the thread with something a little higher quality. They also adjusted the spring holding the bobbin case slightly, and now it seems to work fine. I'm not sure how long it will last, but for now I'm good.
