Sometimes the thread gets in a slot in the posts on top. That would slow it down. Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "thank you for answering. It is definitely something inside in the working parts. I can't even get it to spin without a bobbin."

    Have you gone through the oiling process lately. Does your manual show how to oil the machine?

    If you don't have a manual, you can get one from the manufacturer.

Bobbin winder not working


For ~$30, you can purchase a stand-alone bobbin winder (Sidewinder) that you can use to wind your bobbins. Saves wear-n-tear on your machine and you can wind bobbins without unthreading your machine. Just be sure to verify your bobbins are compatible with the Sidewinder.

Why won't bobbin winder automatically shut off when filled?


Probably something within the bobbin winding mechanism is misaligned or broken. You can probably still wind bobbins except you will probably need to slow it down, watch it, and stop the winding action when the bobbin gets near the filled capacity. Or, for ~$35, you can purchase a standalone bobbin winder (one brand name is Sidewinder) from JoAnn's, Hancocks, or even Amazon.com. (Also helps save wear and tear on your machine.)

Why won't the bobbin winder work


Difficult to diagnose without knowing the make/model and the symptoms. Best advice is to consult the owner's manual.

Make sure the handwheel center cap is loosened before winding the bobbin. Also, snap the lever toward the bobbin to activate the bobbin winder. Confirm that the correct sequence is followed in threading from the spool to the bobbin winder.

If you are unable to get the bobbin winder to work, for ~$25 you can pick up a stand-alone bobbin winder from the local fabric store (JoAnns or Hancocks) or even online (Amazon.com).

Brother VX1435, needle won't move


some machines when the bobbin winder is engaged will not sew, do you
have to disengage the center wheel in the handwheel to wind a bobbin?
or do you have to just move the bobbin winder spindle to the right to
wind the bobbin?
do you have a manual for the machine?

My bobbin won't catch on the bobbin winder, the metal post spins but the plastic singer style bobbin won't spin with it. What's wrong?


The bobbin may be stripped, or the bobbin winder might be stripped; try it with a different bobbin, to rule out the bobbin being the issue; if that doesn't work, look closely at the bobbin winder to see if it has been damaged. You may be able to adjust it's shape with a pliers

My elna sewing machine bobbin won't spin on top to wind thread around. The fly wheel spins though...I've been putting thread on the bobbins by hand.


If the fly wheel is going around then the clutch isn't disengaged to wind the bobbin, you need to pull out the flywheel on your model to disengage the clutch for bobbin winding.

Take thread from thread spool across to bobbin winder thread guide, then back to bobbin and thread the tail through the hole on top of the bobbin. Place bobbin onto spindle on top of machine and then push it against the stop to engage the bobbin winding motor. HOld the thread tail up and start winding slowly until the bobbin core has been covered including the starting point. Stop and trim off the thread tail with scissors. COntinue winding bobbin and give the thread a nudge if needed to wind evening top middle and bottom of the bobbin. A good smooth wind is important. Also don't wind at full speed and keep an eye on the thread reel that the thread is coming off, you don't want it bouncing around as this will **** the thread and stretch then relax it affecting your bobbin wind.

Obviously if you know this and the bobbin winding mechanisim is just not working, then it will need a service/replacement by an Elna repair person.
