Confidence Quilter 7469Q how do I load the bobbin?

Are you trying to wind the bobbin or just dropping it into the bobbin case and bring up the thread?

To wind the bobbin, place the spool on the pin and secure it with the spool pin cap. Pull the thread and pull it through the thread guides. The first guide is accessed by going around it and then pulling the thread under it. Go under the adjacent guide and then wrap the thread counter-clockwise (when facing the front of the machine) under the next guide to bring the thread back to the bobbin winder. Hold the bobbin with the hole up and pull the thread through that hole. Push the bobbin winder shaft to the far left and place the bobbin on the winder pin. Push the bobbin and winder shaft to the right until it clicks. Hold the thread and start the sewing machine. It will automatically stop when the bobbin is full. Move the bobbin winder shaft and bobbin to the left and take the bobbin off. Then cut the thread to separate the bobbin from the spool thread.

To put the bobbin into the bobbin case and bring up the thread:
Make sure that the needle is in the highest position (use the handwheel). Then open the bobbin cover by pressing the release lever to the right and then lifting up the cover. Hold the bobbin with the hole up so that the bobbin turns counter-clockwise when you pull the thread. Drop the bobbin into the bobbin case. Pull the thread into the slot just to the left of the bottom center (6 o'clock on a 12-hour analog clock), of the bobbin case. Place a finger on top of the bobbin and pull the thread to the left until it stops at the slot between the 7-8 o'clock position. Now pull the thread along the groove in the needle plate to the thread cutter. Replace the clear bobbin cover. The thread should be pulled up by the needle thread without any additional effort. (If it isn't, there may be a problem with the bobbin case or race.)

Singer has the manual for the 7469Q on their site: . The direct link to the manual is . Winding the bobbin is on page 16; threading the bobbin at the bobbin case is on page 18. These pages have good pictures to go with the descriptions.

I hope this helps.

Only had machine for a couple weeks and the the automatic thread cutter button doesn't cut the thread. still have to pull the thread up out of the bottom

There may be thread stuck in the cutter, or the tensions are too low to hold the thread fetcher to pull it across the knife. I would suggest returning it to your dealer for some help.

Singer 9960 automatic thread cutter not working

I'm looking for a solution to why the thread cutter isn't working. It just pulls the thread into a knot and jams the bobbin case. I was hoping for an answer here but the answer had nothing to do with the question!

I tried to bring the inferior thread up after put in the bobbin but the needle do not pick up and stopping me for sewing

Is the bobbin put in right? Make sure the thread is coming off the bobbin in a counter-clockwise direction. Also make sure you're leaving enough thread coming off the bobbin for the top thread to grab hold of to pull up.

Does tha iron has a kind of relay for the automatic shut off? I have aSunbeam iron that does not warm up at all, the light on the top of the iron is on, but there is not power for the resistance

It does have a thermic switch, but I don't beleive that's your problem. I guarantee you that the problem is a loose or broken wire.
Take the electrical cover screw(s) off and check the electrical cable connetion to the Iron's hot plate, usually they come loose or break because of the heat. Don't be fooled by the look of a normal looking wire, it may be broken inside. Feel the wires with your fingers, bend it, pull it and look for a bump or soft spot. The best way y to check continuity.
Good Luck

We fixed ours today. Take the iron plate off (bottom of the iron shaped like a triangle). You are looking for a thermal fuse (or thermal-protector fuse) pictured here for less than $2 at Radio Shack( You will need needlenose pliers to gently remove the old fuse and the wire cutters to trim the long wires to the same length as the old fuse (less than 1/2"). Also, since the old fuse was 240 C and we only could find a 228 C replacement - we cannot use the iron at the same high temp. So we limited the dial by marking out a portion of the dial. The iron stopped working after I kept the iron on high for an extended period of time. My electrician husband explained that I over heated the iron - breaking the fuse. Not time I'll turn the iron off or down when I'm not using it. This was so easy, I'm going to check out our other broken irons.
