The shuttle won't stay in place when I put the bobbin in it and try to sew.


Use a new different bobbin...plastic bobbins are notorious for melting and then don't work. Also, take your time winding the bobbin...a nice even wind will center the bobbin. Speed demons cause the bobbin to be unevenly wound and off center. Good luck!

Bobbin spinning up off spool when winding


Slow down the speed. Bobbins should not be wound at a high speed because it will sometimes cause the bobbin or thread spool to rise (and even jump off the machine!). Also the thread tends to be stretched when wound onto the bobbin. Then when sewing, the thread relaxes and may cause the fabric to pucker.

Re Janome 7330 bobbin winding problem. Thread jumps out of the top guide when bobbin is winding. I've tried everything; different speeds, main spool upright,tightening the screw on the thread guide.


Take a look at this video. There are others too. That is a really unusual way and nothing like the Singers, and Pinnocks that I have used. If you want to see other videos, there are a few. Google 'Janome 7330 bobbin winding', and then click on the Video tab. Let me know how you get on?

When following manual directions to wind a bobbin, it starts out OK, but after several winds, the thread turns out with little loops on the bobbin. ??? Sylvia


Make sure that you are running the thread through the winder tension guide before it goes bobbin winder. Best to consult your owner's manual.

Also, it helps to slow down the winding process. Slower speed winds the bobbin more consistently and does not stretch the thread as much as a fast speed will.

Tangled thread after winding new bobbin


Try winding it the opposite way you are doing it now in regards speed. If you are winding it on full speed, try winding the bobbin slower. If you are winding it slow, try faster. Also check that the thread is threading properly and is not catching somewhere, and also that the tension is correct. Finally, test with a thread that you have not experienced problems before.

Unable to remove bobbin from bobbin threader till almost all thread removed. Viking 1+


You could stop the bobbin filling process just before the bobbin is "full."
Most machines have a finger that rides against the area being filled; maybe this is bent?

Bobbins wind unevenly- tension issues


Sounds like it is actually the tension on the bobbin winder. Make sure that the thread is following the correct path to the bobbin. Other than getting it repaired, a stand-alone bobbin winder (avlb @ JoAnn's or online) for ~$30 would work. One brand is called the Sidewinder. Verify that your bobbins will work on it because some Singer bobbins will not. It's a nice accessory to have because it saves wear 'n tear on your machine plus you can wind bobbins without unthreading the machine.

FWIW, it is usually better to wind bobbins at a slower speed. Higher speed will tend to make the bobbin jump around and the thread to pop off. In addition, higher speed will tend to stretch the thread going onto the bobbin. The thread will not relax until unwound from the bobbin and stitched into your garment. It may cause the fabric to pucker as the thread relaxes. Slower is better!

I need to know how to thread a bobbin?


TRY THIS, itma not be your model, but should help Title:
How do I wind the bobbin? windingbobbin_02.jpg

1. Pull up the spool pin as far as possible, and then put a spool of thread on this pin. windingbobbin_a0991.jpg
2. Pass the thread around the pre-tension disk. Make sure that the thread passes under the pre- tension disk.

Caution If the spool of thread is not in the right place, the thread may tangle on the spool pin.

3. Pass the end of the thread through the hole on the bobbin from the inside of the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0993.jpg
4. Put the bobbin onto the bobbin winder shaft and slide the bobbin winder shaft to the right. windingbobbin_a0994.jpg
5. Turn the bobbin clockwise, by hand, until the spring on the shaft slides into the groove of the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0995.jpg ac099.jpg Spring on the shaft ac0991.jpg Groove of the bobbin

6. Turn on the sewing machine. windingbobbin_a0996.jpg
7. While holding the end of the thread, gently press the foot controller or press start/ stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button) to wind the thread around the bobbin a few times. Then stop the machine. windingbobbin_a0997.jpg
Note
  • If the sewing machine is to be operated using the foot controller, connect the foot controller before turning on the machine.
  • When the foot controller is plugged in, the start/stop button cannot be used to start sewing (only for models equipped with the start/stop button).

8. Trim the excess thread above the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0998.jpg
Caution Make sure you follow the instructions carefully.
If you do not cut the thread completely, and the bobbin is wound, when the thread runs low it may tangle around the bobbin and cause the needle to break.

9. Slide the sewing speed controller to the right (to set the speed to fast).
(For models equipped with the sewing speed controller.) windingbobbin_a0999.jpg ac0992.jpg Sewing speed controller
10. Press the foot controller or press start/stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button) to start. windingbobbin_a18.jpg
11. When the bobbin seems full and begins spinning slowly, take your foot off the foot controller or press start/stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button). windingbobbin_a19.jpg
12. Cut the thread, slide the bobbin winder shaft to the left and remove the bobbin. windingbobbin_a191.jpg
13. Slide the sewing speed controller back to its original position (for models equipped with the sewing speed controller). windingbobbin_a192.jpg


Caution Not winding the bobbin properly may cause the thread tension to loosen, and may break the needle.

Note
  • When the sewing machine is started or the handwheel is turned after winding the thread around the bobbin, the machine will make a clicking sound; this is not a malfunction.
  • The needle bar does not move when you slide the bobbin winding shaft to the right.

Winding the Bobbin


I have the same problem and was skeptical of the drop of oil solution but it worked. I had taken my baby lock ellure apart while investigating previously and found nothing else wrong. Tried a few drops of oil and after a moment it started winding noisily and then settled right in!! Working perfectly now!
