Question about Janome Hello Kitty 11706 Mechanical Sewing Machine

2 Answers

My Babylock 6150 fell over and the spool pin ("shaft"?) is broken. I have an extra spool pin but this is broken at the machine. I can not even figure out how to use the extra pin that came with the machine. Is this fixable? It cracked and broke off at the machine where the shaft actually has some sort of spring action. Please help me to find where I may purchase a replacement part. Thank you, Iris

You may be able to (very carefully) super glue the pin back on where it broke off.

If the part you have looks like it has threads on it , then you need to unscrew the old broken one out of the case and put in new one .some were just a press in fit . use small drill to extract the piece

Can't figure out how to fill the bobbin

hi Beverly.
you have not said what make and model.

Always wind the bobbin before threading the machine and needle.
  1. Place spool of thread on spool pin.
  2. Slide spool pin holder/cap firmly over rim of spool to prevent thread from tangling.

Depends. Some spool pins simply push in and snap in place, but as many machine brands existing, there are probably double the different spool pins available... If you order from one of the online vendors, they will probably be able to advise how to install it.

How do you replace the spool pin on a babylock ellure sewing machine

Place the cone of thread on your right, at the back of the machine. Bring the thread up and behind the bobbin winder spindle. (where the bobbin sits) Place the largest spool cap on the empty horizontal spool pin and take the thread through the hole of the spool cap. From this point thread the machine normally.

I have a Babylock Denim Pro II and the entire mechanism that holds the needle just fell off the machine!! What the heck do I do?

Hey there,

This just happened to me last night, too! I figured out that it tightens back onto the shaft with an allen wrench. I found a tiny allen wrench in my tool box and it did the trick. Hope this helps!

How do i replace the spool pin on my singer sewing machine model # 3314?

Two ways.. either put the new spool pin in the other extra hole to the left of the trap door on top OR take out the two bigger screws on the top cover that hold it in, also take off the knobs on the front sliders (patters selection) and remove the top over. Push the old pin out from the inside with nail or something simila and replace.. simple. Do you have an extra spool pin you can share?

Hi - I'm sorry you have been waiting for an answer to your problem. Can you tell me whether this was first time you used the cartrige, or has it been working up until now? Unfortunately, the cartridges tend to break fairly easily.
To determine whether your cartridge is broken, take out the thread and thread it again. The cartridge won't lock-in unless your presser foot is up and your needle is raised to its hightest position (needle threaders are designed to prevent damage, so they often won't work if the parts of your machine are not positioned properly for threading).  
If the cartidge still won't engage, check the page in your manual that describes the parts that came with your machine - you should see a picture of a spool pin. Although the spool pin is designed to accommodate spools of thread that don't fit in your cartrige, you can use the spool pin all the time. Your manual describes how to install the spool pin.
Fortunately, you can purchase spool pins and replacement cartridges from several online sources, including eBay, and some Babylock Dealers sell them (the Babylock and Brother cartidges are interchangeable). I have the same machine, and I always keep an extra cartridge around. I can thread the extra spool while the other is sewing. When the machine stops for a color change, I just insert the extra cartridge with the next color, then thread up the empty cartridge for the next color. Speeds up your embroidery alot. 
On Google, type in Brother Thread Cassette - you'll get lots of hits, and you should be able to find a cartridge for about $10.00.
If you have and other readers have time to rate my answer (good or bad), your rating helps me determine whether I understand your problem.
If you have more details about your problem or have additional questions, please feel free to comment. I can send you the instructions for threading the cartridge and installing the spool pin if your manual is missing. Just submit a comment - and I'll help anyway I can.
Cheers, Ginny
