Most likely the needle was broken when a piece of cloth was under the machine right , this means that the needle was slightly bent while it went down to pick up the lower thread , in most of these cases it damaged something fornm the bottom spool.....better check carefullyfor marks and VERY genrly with a new needle in place utrn by hand and see feel where it gets stuck...then replace part or bring to shop to fix ...

SOURCE: I need to load the bobbin for my singer 247, I have no manual

I am a veteran seamstress and I may be able to help you. it sounds as though you just have the wrong needle in the machine or the needle is in backwards.. Machine needles are different lengths according to what machine it is. The needle could also be dull on the point. Try this and see if it helps. Also your local sew shop can help you no charge if you just go in and talk with them. The techs enjoy helping for the most part I have discovered.

SOURCE: Singer 8280 bobbin thread not taken up by needle

needle in backwards?

SOURCE: Threading Singer 247 bobbin, no manual

Slot A looks like a groove in the front of the bobbin housing just pull the thread to the right and then to the left to get it into groove A, groove B is to the left of A when you pull it into A it will slip into B. You then just pull the thread forward and you are good to go. I hope this makes sense. I can try to take a picture of mine and see if I can get a clear picture if you still need help.

I have a singer sewing machine 247 . I broke the needle and have replaced it now the bobbin will not turn.


CHANGE THE NEEDLE. TAKE OUT ALL OF THE BOBBIN CASING. CLEAN IT AND PUT ONE DROP OF OIL ON THE RACE (THE INDENT AREA THAT EVERYTHING RIDES ON AND CAN'T BE REMOVED). LOOK FOR A BROKEN NEEDLE PART AND THREAD AND ANYTHING THAT SHOULDN'T BE THERE. PUT EVERYTHING BACK. TURN THE HAND WHEEL TOWARDS YOU AND OBSERVE IF THERE IS ANYTHING TOUCHING THE NEEDLE. IF THERE IS THEN THAT WILL NEED TO BE FIXED.

Bobbin won't spin to allow needle to catch thread


sometimes when you break a needle it can cause the machine to
jump time, the machine would have to be taken to a sewing machine
shop to be checked by the technican

Janome 1600p-DBX is not taking the bobbin


have you checked to see if the needle is inserted correctly into
the needle clamp,,all the way up into the needle clamp
& that the needle is turned the right way
also check to make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the
bobbin case.
if you have checked for this then the following is possible
it's very possible that when you broke the needle that it caused
the machine to jump time, & it would have to be taken to a sewing
machine shop to be retimed.

My singer 247 stopped picking up the bobbin thread.


rethread the machine top & bobbin
change the needle
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of your sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the needle clamp screw to remove the old needle.
Place the new needle in the needle clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back, (round needle, the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft).
Push the needle all the way up as far as it will go. Then tighten the needle clamp screw

if these suggestion don't help then the machine needs to be checked
to see if it's out of time

The motor runs on my Singer Merrit 8734 but the needle doesn't move.


if you have to undo the clutch to wind the bobbin, then try undoing the clutch again & then retightening the clutch & see if that helps & if it doesn't help the machine needs to be checked

Looking for bobbin case for singer 3270c I see lots that look like the one I have but none of the numbers they list match mine... Also the machine is bunching up the tread and my bobbin case is broke so...


check with these 2 websites for the part ,,

sewingpartsonline.com or sewvacdoctor.com

it's possible the bobbin case could be a problem, I have 2 sewing machine & if one of them had a broken bobbin case I would replace it

have you tried a new needle

also check the thread take up lever, if the thread comes off of it, that can jam up the machine as well, I've had that happen before

also keep under the needle plate area clean of lint or loose threads & also the bobbin area
