SOURCE: My bobbin cotton wraps around the bobbin holder and jams the machine

I know this is probably not the answer but: are you sure the thread is coming off of the bobbin on the left side (bobbin in machine correctly), and when I first got my machine I tied to use the bobbins that I had on hand that fit my Singer machine. I had tons of problems with the "odd" bobbins that did not fit correctly into my machine. There is a VERY small size difference, but it does make a difference.

SOURCE: when starting to sew, cotton

it is possible that the needle & thread are not compatable
here's how to check
Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread

Hand piece is very tight to turn and unable to use the machine


Make sure to clean/remove all the lint, thread, dust, etc. that may have built up in the bobbin area, around the feed dogs, and under the needle plate. Sometimes gunk build-up will prevent the hand wheel from turning. Remove the bobbin & bobbin case from the machine and the needle and see if the hand wheel will turn. If not, then it may be time for service.

My hand wheel is hard to move and will not make complete turn unless...

Replace the needle.
The tension on the bottom may be too tight(loosen) or the top tension may not be tight enough (tighten). Try to fix with the top tension being tightened first.. Move the hand wheel first for a couple of rounds. If it is still a problem the bottom tension will need to be loosened. Always make sure all of the old threads are cleaned out thoroughly. Now, here is a problem chart to look at if this isn't a fix.

E5: The machine is jammed or the foot controller is defective. A. Replace the foot controller. B. Check for a tight or stuck clutch by the hand wheel. C. The machine may be jammed. Remove the timing belt to locate whether the bind is on the upper shaft or lower shaft. If it is the upper shaft, there may be thread caught in the take-up lever or crank pin. If the lower shaft is binding, check hook clearance, hook backlash. D. If you continue to have the problem, loosen the screws that hold the metal, lower shaft supporter. While the machine is running slow-to-medium speed, tighten the screws. E. Clean the sensor on the DC motor and check if the shield plate on the motor is not loose or hitting the sensor. If either the sensor or shield plate is damaged, replace the motor. F. Check the lower shaft sensor. Make sure the shield plate is going perfectly thru the middle of the sensor. Replace the sensor and/or shield plate if damaged. G. If you still get the error, replace the DC motor or lower shaft sensor (in this order).

How do I thread the bobbin in a kenmore 17628


you shoul check your manual.

If you don't have one,
I'am not sure what this machine looks like,

On the top part of the machine, put your thread on the thread spool,(on the right) the thread should be brought over to the left side and wraped around a small button looking piece. then brought back towards the spool of thread, bring the thread through a small hole in the bobbin, pul 2-3inch out, place the bobbin on the small metal bobbin holder and push to the right,

make sure pressure foot is up. you will need to loosen the hand wheel, hold the hand wheel with the left and and with the right hand turn the center circle back to it loosend (counter clockwise)

make sure the bobbin wind evenly

Needle hitting the metal spool housing underneath, mis-timing?


the timing has, gone there is a screw holding the spool carrage on to the shaft lossen this a little so that it still grips but will turn, the neddle should pass the point on the spool case just after the eye comes level with the spool point and hence pick up the lower cotton and just miss the spool case, after re timing turn over by hand to ensure nothing is hitting anything else.

How do you thread a singer 9836c machine


I have this machine and the manual but it will be difficult to explain without the diagram. Here are the instructions without the diagram ... I'm assuming that you know some parts of the machine i.e. the foot etc

NB. thread the bobbin FIRST - points number 8 onwards....

1. Raise take-up lever to highest position on machine by turning the hand wheel towards you and make sure the presser foot is raised.
2. Place spool of thread on the spool pin at the back making sure spool cap is firmly in place to keep it on.
3. Take thread and place through the thread guide (plastic bit same side as spool pin) a under and over action. Across from this guide is a small metal wheel on top of another loop pin on the top at the front of the machine. Take the thread and put through the loop pin. 9Thread should come out on top of the pin towards you).
4. On the front of the arm is a tension wheel numbered between 0 - 8. The thread should then be placed down the front of the arm, underneath the tension wheel (behind the body part of the arm not under the wheel) and lifted up to catch the tension spring unseen behind the wheel. It should then be threaded through the eye of the metal piece (that moves as the needle goes up and down).
5. The thread should then be passed down the gap in the body work and down through the middle of the metal spiral loop in the front near the needle.
6. The thread should continue down through the horizontal clip just above the needle.
7. The needle should be place with the flat part at the back and held firmly with the screw. The eye of the needle will face you. The thread should then be threaded through the front and out the back and under the foot leaving a six inch tail.

Your thread should now come off the spool move towards the left through the plastic guide, across the top of the machine at right angles, through the metal loop; down the front of the machine (you can't see the thread as it sits behind the body) and reappears through the metal arm hole that goes up and down with the needle. It should then come down through the metal spiral and behind the clip above the needle, through the eye of the needle and away from you under the foot.

8. The bobbin needs to be wound. The bobbins are particualr to each make of machine. So only singer bobbins can be used on Singer machines. The bobbin winder is the metal pin on the right on the top of the machine.
9. To wind the bobbin. Place the bobbin over the metal pin nad push firmly down. It is located on the top on the right hand side.
10. Place thread on the spool pin as before and thread the cotton through the plastic thread guide.
11. Take the thread as before but rather than going through the metal clip on the top at the front, place it anti clockwise partly round the metal wheel on top of the metal clip (don't go all the way around) and across to the right where the bobbin has been placed.
12. The thread should be wound clockwise as many times as required not to slip off when the thread is automatically wound with the electic foot peddle.
13. Push the bobobin manually to the right along the groove in the body and press the electric foot peddle. Bobbin should wind moving the thread up and down (not necessarly evenly) and filling the bobbin. Fill about 80%. Leave a six inch tail.
14 Pull the plate forward under the needle. Place bobbin in its slot. The thread should be in a clockwise direction and when the bobbin is placed catch the thread under the groove found on the left at the top of the bobbin case. Close the plate with the thread coming out above in the slot under the needle.
15 Manually turn the hand wheel a couple of times until you can see the bobbin thread making a loop with the stitch thread and pull through.
16 Both threads should be under the foot and away from you.
17 Tension normally is around 5 -6 on the tension wheel with standard cotton and polyester cotton thread. To tighten the tension the number should increment upwards.

Machine is a cracker and according to my local shop never goes wrong. I have had mine since 1999 and that's true.

Hope this helps.... I would send you the manual but I'm not sure how you keep email addresses private.

Good luck.

My Kenmore sewing machine model 385.15212 is stuck in the needle down position. I have cleared the threads and cleaned the bobbin area. Tried to force the hand wheel, but it won't go, and don't want to...


I doubt it is a motor problem but it is too jammed up to turn the motor-you are right not to force it. Take out all of the bobbin parts again and leave them out. Now unscrew the needle and while lowering it, into the needleplate hold it tightly and remove it. Clear all thread from the machine and it should now move freely.
Reassemble the bobbin parts and reinsert a new needle being careful to insert it fully and correctly.

My CE 200 jammed and I cleaned it out now it won't pick up bobbin thread how do i reset the timing?


To reset the timing on your machine there are timing marks that show you where the machine must be set.
Remove the needle plate and bobbin case. Turn the hand wheel towards you until the needle bar is in the lowest position. You will see two marks on the needle bar with the top one being flush with the bottom of the bushing. If it is not, loosen the needle bar screw and move it up or down to set the marks. Make sure you keep the needle bar straight (needle clamp screw should be straight to the right).
Next turn the hand wheel until the lower timing mark is flush with the bushing. At this point, the hook tip should be just above the eye of the needle.
If the hook tip and needle do not line up, turn the machine on its back making sure the needle bar does not move. Loosen the two timing screws on the hook pulley (only loosen them 1/4 turn). Move the hook to line it up with the needle. Tighten the screws and recheck the timing. The feed dogs should be in the down position when timing the machine. If the feed dogs are up when the timing is done, the hook timing is out 180 degrees.

Can't pull thread from spool


The sequence of setting up of thread from spool to needle is not complied to actual setting is one factor to be consider it affect the sequence timing of sewing.Particularly some machine are common in starting up threading.fig. shown a basic flow of thread on red color.It maybe a helpful oneb1934dc.jpg

In addition to this the set up of thread to bobbins winder is also need in right place the thread should be in clockwise rotation when coming out to bobbins casing as shown in fig.76e4431.jpg as you can see when thread was pulled out from bobbins winder is moving counter clockwise.If you try to sew, try cotton fabric and set dial to # 3 to 4 and stitch set range to 8 up to 12 depend on layers and thickness,After setting try to sew manually ,turn hand wheel by your hand first,let upper tension catch the lower bobbins tension and arranged thread and insert fabric use hand turning hand wheel several time until stich appear on fabric observed loop thread on lower bobbins on fabric.if accumulation of loop thread on lower adjust upper tension also dial tension gradually until it has a smooth stich appear.
