Depends on the make & model...

Some older mechanical sewing machines need regular cleaning & oiling. Check your user manual.

Where to get a new handwheel/handwheel switch for a Singer 3270C sewing machine?


They may not have it but they should be able to order it. How old is the machine? If it is too old, they may not support it any more

How do I engage the bobbin winding gear for Pfaff 7570?


To disengage the needle while winding a bobbin do the following: the handwheel on the right end of the machine has an inner knob. hold the outer rim of the handwheel stationary as you rotate the inner knob counterclockwise. Also make sure the bobbin winding peg is pushed over to the right and the bobbin is seated on the peg.

The machine will not turn the spindle to wind cotton onto the bobbin.


What model Bernina is it? Most operate on a simple system where a rubber wheel on the bobbin winder comes into contact with the handwheel (under the cover) ... the handwheel is disengaged so the needle has no drive.......

My Designer 1 sewing machine runs great, but it sound terrible. It always sounds like rattling from the bobbin area. What can be done? I take it for cleans and mention this, but nothing changes.


When the needle moves down, is it striking the edge of the needle plate? If so, adjustment is needed. Take the various parts of the bobbin assembly out of the machine and use the handwheel to move the needle in the downward direction (turn the handwheel counterclockwise). Is the needle striking the "hook" in its downward most position? If so, this is most likely what's making the noise and it needs adjustment.

I only want to know if the wheel must be loosened to wind the bobbin and if so with direction, to the front or backwards and press and turn or pull and turn.thanks


Which make and model sewing machine do you have?

None of my sewing machines need the wheel to be loosened for bobbin winding. The Singer Touch & Sew bobbins are filled in place. Use the handwheel to get the needle into the highest position (just turn the wheel). Wrap the top thread around the screw that holds the presser foot; open the slide plate part way and press the bobbin wind button. Hold the top thread and then begin winding by stepping on the foot pedal.. The thread should break after a few winds.

The Kenmore and the Husqvarna Vikings both get wound at the top. Place bobbin on winding pin. With the needle up and metal presser foot in place thread the top thread up to the bobbin (through the guides) and up through the hole in the bobbin. Slide the bobbin winding switch over towards the bobbin. Hold the thread tightly and begin winding (step on the foot control). After a few winds are on the bobbin, cut the thread that you were holding flush with the top of the bobbin. Continue winding the bobbin. (The newest Viking in the group has a computer screen; on that one, do not press OK until done winding the bobbin.)

However, if the handwheel is not turning and the needle is down, first find out why it isn't turning properly. This could indicate a tangle of thread somewhere in the system. (The older Husqvarna sewing machine in my home has a non-functional handwheel. The machine will still sew but you have to use the needle up/down switch that forces the needle to stop in the up position before you run out of bobbin.)

Please add a comment with the specifics of your sewing machine and I'll be glad to add additional information.

I hope this helps.

Handwheel won't turn, take-up lever not accessable


Make sure the bobbin winding settings are "in-active" - this could be the position of the pin for the bobbin or the center knob on the handwheel, depending on the model you have.

Open the throat plate and bobbin case to be sure there aren't any threads tangled there. This can stop the handwheel from turning.

My Brother CS-8060/CS-80 is making a high pitched squeaking noise when I try to thread a bobbin. My manual has nothing about that kind of problem. I think it might be something to do with the belt or maybe...


Hi! The first thing I'd do is look for thread caught on the bobbin winding spindle, but below the little platform where the bobbin sits. It's really hard to get at, but if you shine a light from the side, you should be able to bend your head (or tilt the machine back) so that you can see the underside of that platform. When I've gotten thread caught on that spindle, I take my scaple or a craft knife and carefully cut the thread free, then use a set of tweezers to pull it out. You're working in a very cramped area, so be patient and go slowly.

Make sure the lid that uncovers the bobbin winding mechanism is as far back as it will go; the same goes for the spool that holds the thread.

Sometimes I get a a high-pitched squeaking noise (but it's not loud) just sewing. It comes from the handwheel and I don't know why my machine does it. It stops if I push the handwheel in (although the handwheel doesn't seem to be out.)

See if these suggestions help--if not, let me know, and we can try something else.

Happy Sewing!

Needle does not move


I'm not sure about this particular machine but bump the bobbinwinder over, it should move one way or the other. Also there is a knob on the side on the inside of the handwheel. This is probably loose and you need to hand tighten it a bit. When this is loose it disengages the handwheel from the shaft so your needlebar won't go up and down while you wind a bobbin.
Hope thats it. Good luck.

Dont know how to use the sewing machine so how do i thread


well!I If you buy a new sewing machine it has a manual to guide you in any brand.But if buy a used one sometime it doesn't have a manual, you didn't mention the type of sewing machine you want to use any how if you have a mechanical sewing machine it's better to start on it.First you must know and must familiarize the significant part of machine and important usage of them,I'll just mention the most usage part at start.Putting thread in bobbins first there is bobbins winder where thread was wind,draw thread from spool through bobbins winder tension disc located at top of machine.wind thread around an empty bobbins serveral times then,place bobins onto bobbins winder shaft with thread wound on bobbins clockwise sometimes this is located at top right side a shaft coupled to circular rubber touching handwheel perpendicular sometime it was located at right side front of machine near handwheel.Release clutch by pulling handwheelor rotating pivot wheel counterclockwise at the center of handwheel whlle holding freeze the handwheel tigh in order to disingage the motion of handwheel from mechanism of machine.
