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.)

SOURCE: Bobbin Winder won't release

i have a husqvarna rose, i has the same problem when i started using my machine. i was suggested to not wind the bobbin so fast. the reason it gets stuck is because the thread is so tight on the bobbin it actually makes the bobbin a tiny bit smaller, making it hard to get off again. if you dont wind it so fast, it doesn't get so tight.

SOURCE: bobbin doesn't fill in bobbin winder

The bobbin winder question is a frequent one and it is very easy to solve. If you look at the shaft where the bobbin sits on the bobbin winder, you will notice that it has a slot in the middle of the shaft, an opening if you will. This is where you use a flat screw driver and open that space more to give more friction to the bobbin so it is not loose on the shaft. That slot was made for that. There are different bobbins on the market so thats why the slot is there. If it is too tight, grab a pair of pliers and close the gap. The metal of the bobbin winder on that shaft is malleable exactly for this reason. No need to put plastic bag material or anything like that. Use it as it was intended for.

You can turn the screw on the top of bobbin winder tad to right. Also, you may want to try a metal Universal bobbin, but try first option I gave first. Jimmy

When I try to fill my bobbin the thread gets all balled up on top of the bobbin instead of filling it. What should I do?


Consult your owner's manual. Chances are you may be threading the thread incorrectly. Make sure it is going through the bobbin winder tension guide before going to the bobbin winder mechanism.

If it continues, the bobbin winder may need a height adjustment. I had that issue with a machine that the case surrounding the bobbin mechanism was slightly misaligned. Once it was fixed, the bobbin winder worked perfectly.

Bobbin filled -won't shut off


The bobbin sits on a bobbin holder for winding. To initiate winding, the winder leaver should be pushed toward the bobbin on the holder.
If the bobbin is over-winding, the winder leaver needs to be rotated so that the section pointing towards the bobbin is closer. This can be done by gently rotating the winding leaver by hand, remember gently. It will not need much rotation, so do not overturn ... most of all be gentle. If it does not budge, the screw in the middle of the winder lever may be loosened and the winder leaver rotated. Make sure to tighten the screw when finished.
This should get the bobbin comfortably full. If the bobbin still continues to over-wind then the sensor underneath may need attention by you local technician. Do not attempt to open your Viking 1 as it may cause extensive damage and.will also null all warranties
Let me know how you go. Cheers.

Why does my bobbin winder stop prematurely?


Define "prematurely". Bobbins shouldn't fill to the edge of the bobbin. Are they wound evenly? Uneven winding can cause the winder to stop early.

My singer quantum 9940 bobbin will not fill even. What seems to be the problem?


There's a small screw on top of bobbin winder on your machine. Turn screw to adjust pressure where bobbin meets the winder when winder is pushed to right to wind it. Test with small turns until you are satisfied with appearance. Make sure nice, even fill- as you know, imbalanced bobbin will reak havoc. Jimmy

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 Model # 1120 Singer sewing machine needle will not go up and down when motor is pressed. The bobbin winder, however, spins.


It sounds like your machine is set to wind the bobbin right now, so the drive is disengaged. That would explain why the bobbin winder pin is the only part moving. Check your manual for how to reset the machine when you are finished winding the bobbin.

Most machines have a way to disengage the drive for the needle while filling the bobbin. Then once the bobbin is filled, you re-engage the drive. Some machines have a separate, smaller hand-wheel that turns and clicks into place. Some machines automatically reengage the drive once the bobbin pin snaps into place away from the drive belt.

I hope this helps!

Bobbin Winder Works--Stitching Does Not


The second microswitch that is located just to the right of the bobbin winder stop tells the machine that it is set to wind a bobbin.

If the machine does not indicate that the bobbin winder is engaged, the second microswitch is not the problem. The bobbin winder itself is what shifts the clutch. If it is pulled downward, the clutch is disengaged and the upper shaft does not turn. Place your thumb under the bobbin winder, push it upwards and the clutch automatically re-engages and the shaft will turn.

Be very careful with the touch screen cable with the front cover off. If it has the older style cable on it, they are very delicate when releasing and reconnecting. If you put the front cover back on and the touch screen does not work, this will be the most likely problem. You will need to have the touch screen replaced.

You need to get your bobbin winder turned off first, then worry about the stop contacting the thread. If the stop is not tripped, then it is in its normal position and everything should work fine.

When not filling a bobbin, simply raise the bobbin winder and you should be ready to sew. Look at the opening around the winder shaft in the front cover and you will need to have it up and to the right. Just push the shaft with your thumb.

Bobbin filling


The handwheel may have a pull out/push in action to disengage/engage the clutch, or it may automatically disengage when the bobbin winder is moved to the right for winding........hold a short tail of thread to get it started and you should be away.

Move the winder to the left for sewing, or push handwheel in, according to the mechanism.
