Threading may be incorrect or bobbin has not grasped the thread end well enough. Wind a little on manually when you first start, just to get it gripping tightly

Bobbin is not feeding properly- didn't wind on evenly.


It is important that the bobbin be wound smoothly for the machine to operate properly. First, check that you are threading the machine correctly to wind the bobbin. There is a tensioner for the bobbin winder that helps wind the bobbin smoothly so incorrect threading will cause issues. Also, try to wind your bobbin slower. There is no advantage to winding the bobbin on high speed.

If you continue to have bobbin winding issues, there is a standalone bobbin winder (SideWinder) avlb at JoAnn's or even Amazon for ~$30,. They are electric or battery operated. Be sure to verify your machine bobbins will work on the SideWinder before purchasing as some bobbins are not compatible. The bobbin winder is a handy gadget since multiple bobbins can be wound quickly, plus bobbins can be wound without having to unthread the machine, not to mention reducing the wear and tear on your sewing machine.

I have trouble winding the bobbin. For some reason it starts winding it below the bobbin.


Verify that you are threading it properly for bobbin winding. Perhaps the bobbin winder height needs to be adjusted. If you continue to have problems (which I frequently have with some of my machines), I simply use a pencil or a skewer to raise the thread as it is winding on the bobbin.

The bobbin won't wind, do you know what my problem is?


It is difficult to diagnose without knowing the machine brand and model.

Consult your manual and verify that you are properly following all the steps and threading the machine properly to wind the bobbin.

If you still are unable to wind a bobbin, you can pick up a stand-alone bobbin winder (one brand name is Sidewinder) sometimes available at fabric stores, ie Hancock's, JoAnn's, or Amazon for about $25.

Winding an Elna bobbin

Perhaps the bobbin winding mechanism has not been released. (She unsnaps the bobbin when finished winding.)

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.

My Janome 3018 will not wind a nice tight bobbin. They are loose and spongy. This machine is brand new. I have double checked that it is threaded properly and the thread is in the correct place and


You are not exactly threading the machine when you wind the bobbin. So follow the directions for winding the bobbin, make sure the thread fits under the little revolving wheel, and make sure that the stitch part of the machine is disengaged.

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.......

Singer 7444 trouble winding bobbin


It sounds like you don't have any tension on the thread when winding the bobbin. Make sure that you are running the thread through the tension disc on the top of the machine before going to the bobbin winder.

Can't get Bobbin to wind properly


Verify that your thread path is correct when winding the bobbin. It has a distinctive path including a tensioner that helps your thread wind smoothly. Do not use a bobbin that is not wound smoothly because (as you already know) it could possibly break needles and damage the machine.
