Most like the machine has seized due to lack of oil over time. Frequently, the levers, selectors, and feed dog mechanisms are affected first, but it could also have affected the bobbin winding mechanism.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

My 1130 bobbin threader turns, but will not wind thread.


Check that the bobbin winder is snapped all the way over.

Sorry, unable to provide more help, but a standalone bobbin winder may be helpful. You can find one brand (called "Sidewinder") at sewing stores like JoAnn's or online for ~ $30. Just verify that your bobbins will work (some Singer bobbins do not), but I assume your machine is a Bernina. Even if your bobbin winder is repaired, this standalone bobbin winder will save wear and tear on your machine--also, makes it so-o-o-o much easier to wind a bobbin without first removing the thread from your machine.

How do I turn off THE BOBBIN winder on a Bernette 65 sewing machine?


The bobbin spindle needs to be moved to the left in the slot to disengage the winding mechanism. (It may be easier to do this with the bobbin on the spindle. The bobbin and spindle should be moved to the right after putting the bobbin on for winding.)

The directions and pictures for winding the bobbin are on page 30-31 of the manual. The manual is available from Bernina on their support page for the out-of-print Bernette machine manuals: .http://www.bernina.com/en-US/Support-US/Out-of-Print-Manuals/bernette-manuals/Bernette-Sewing-Machines . The direct link to the Bernette 65 manual is here: http://www.bernina.com/getdoc/6d2754b8-af09-4edb-a6a6-7a4c57965b8d/bernette-55-65-80e-90e .

I hope this helps.

Bobbin on Bernina 807 won't wind?


Please follow the logic checks and possible corrections:

1. Check the winder shaft for a sticking or a stuck condition. If stuck or sticking, add a drop or two of mineral spirits to the winder shaft and the winder support bushing. This will generally release the winder shaft.
If the winder shaft becomes free wheeling, clean off excess solvent and apply a drop of Bernina machine oil which is typically a class 68 machine oil. You can also use a common white mineral sewing machine oil.
Do not use WD-40 or 3 in 1 oil!
If WD-40 had been used prior to the winder seizure then you'll know why....Removing sticky WD-40 residues requires further measures.

2. If only the rubber wheel has hardened, you will need to replace the winder hub with a new hub and replaceable winder ring or the entire winder can be replaced. There are some very good after-market parts available online.

3. If the winder parts are good and you are describing a condition where the hand-wheel will not release so that the machine drives while trying to wind a bobbin, this would requite another question and detailed answer... SewTechnical Home

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.......

Bernina 135 bobbin winds unevenly


If you are finding that the bobbin is winding with more thread towards one edge of the bobbin than the other, the bobbin winder motor needs to be adjusted so that the angle of the winder shaft is properly aligned with the tension disc next to the head cover. Unfortunately, unlike many of the other models, you have to remove the covers on the Activa range to get at the adjuster. There is a spring-tensioned screw just to the left of the bobbin winder motor that adjusts the angle of the motor and therefore how it loads the bobbin. If the winder is loading the bobbin with most of the thread towards the bottom edge, the screw should be turned clockwise and if most towards the top, it should be turned anticlockise. Make adjustments until the thread is winding evenly or, at least, towards the centre of the bobbin.

If you are finding that your bobbin is being loaded somewhat randomly, make sure you are using the vertical spool holder to hold the spool and that you've got a foam pad under the thread spool. Route the thread through the thread guide before winding around the tension disc in the correct direction (see the arrow on the case) and ensure that the spool and thread do not vibrate unduly when the bobbin is being wound. If you let the spool vibrate whilst the bobbin is loading, it may result in varying tension on the thread and uneven winding onto the bobbin.

I own a Bernina Deco 340. While winding the bobbin, The thread keeps wrapping around the bobbin post


I have that machine. Either the bobbin isn't all the way down on the bobbin winder or the thread isn't under the top part of the bobbin winder guide. These must be plastic bobbins.

Bernina 180 - winding thread onto bobbin spool


If the bobbin winder spindle turns freely by hand and the macine runs fine with the foot controller then it may be the small motor that runs the bobbin winder that is at fault. If this is the case then your local service tech should be able to relace it. It is not a very costly part so don't be to worried.

Bernina 145 Bobbin winding problem


If the winder is working without thread as it should you can rule out an electronic and motor issue. At this point it won't hurt to remove the two screws on top and lift your top cover off. Take a close look at your winder and see if there is any thread or anything wound around or blocking it. There are one or two screws that will adjust the eveness of your bobbinwinding but I don't think this is part of the problem (just a slight turn for that until the bobbin winds evenly). There is a spring beneith the winder that may have popped loose, check that but if the little arm snaps back and forth thats ok. The spring should be in the second tooth of the gear notches.
I hope this helps.
