Brand-new? Talk to the vendor who sold you the machine. There may be something wrong with it.

My Singer Slant-o-Matic 500a sewing machine will not wind a bobbin. The winding pin barely started to turn, then no motion. Also, the wheel doesn't seem to tighten.


Your machine is an older mechanical machine, so have you cleaned and oiled it recently? Usually, older machines' oil will gunk up over time and stop things from moving like they should. Use only Fresh, good quality sewing machine oil. Do NOT oil belts, cams, rubber, or plastic parts. Slowly rotate the handwheel and place a couple drops of oil every place where metal rubs metal. To speed up the process, direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the internal metal parts.

The bobbin won't stay in place


Your bobbin is too short. The correct bobbin must be even with the bobbin case. If it is the bobbin case that is moving around then you must adjust the inner rotary hook bracket assy. It must allow the thread to move between the corner (near screw) and the bobbin casing. Rotate the hand wheel towards you to make sure the thread fits between the corner and the casing. Make it as tight as possible without a snag taking place.

The bobbin thread will not raise with the needle


1. REPLACE NEEDLE W/FLAT PART AWAY FROM YOU.
2. MAKE SURE THE TOP THREAD IS PROPERLY THREADED.
3. INSURE BOTTOM BOBBIN IS ROTATING RIGHT DIRECTION. (USUALLY COUNTERCLOCKWISE) ALLOW THREE INCHES OF THREAD PULLED AWAY.
4. HOLD TOP THREAD W/LEFT HAND AND ROTATE HAND WHEEL TOWARDS YOURSELF. DOES IT BRING THE BOBBIN THREAD UP?
5. IF THE BOBBIN CARRIER IS INSTALLED PROPERLY THE HOOK (POINTED OBJECT) UNDER THE BOBBIN SHOULD "HOOK" THE TOP THREAD AND BRING THE THREAD AROUND THE BOBBIN THREAD. THE NEEDLE AND TOP THREAD SHOULD BE PULLING THE BOBBIN THREAD UPWARDS. IF THE HOOK DIDN'T "HOOK" THE NEEDLE THREAD THE PROBLEM IS THE DISTANCE OF THE NEEDLE AND HOOK APART OR THE TIMING. YOU MAY TRY TO MOVE THE NEEDLE TO THE LEFT SIDE AND AGAIN TRY ROTATING THE HAND WHEEL. IF IT DOESN'T WORK THEN TRY TO MOVE THE NEEDLE ALL THE WAY TO THE RIGHT AND ROTATE THE HAND WHEEL. IF IT BRINGS THE BOBBIN THREAD UPWARDS IN EITHER CASE IT WILL SHOW A PROBLEM WITH TIMING. THIS WILL NEED TO BE ADJUSTED BY A PROFESSIONAL.
6. REMEMBER TO PUT ONE DROP OF OIL ON THE RACE TRACK BEFORE YOU PUT THE BOBBIN CARRIER IN.

I have a brother sewing machine. i threaded and have rethreaded and threaded the bobbin over and over. it will not move the fabric and botton thread will not catch onto top. what am i doing wrong?


Brother machines are usually a very good brand. Sounds like you are having a small problem with threading..........I know how frustrating that can be!
Start over....totally from the beginning. First, clean the machine of all dust, I use a small paint brush to remove lint from the bobbin case area. Oil the machine. Remove all the thread from the machine, use a different bobbin and rewind it with new thread. Make sure the bobbin thread is the same as the thread you use to thread the upper needle with. Use a new needle that is the appropriate size for your sewing project. Check to make sure the feed dog is moving when you turn the wheel that raises the needle up and down. New needle, new bobbin, new thread......before you place the fabric under the presser foot (and with the presser foot raised), turn the wheel one complete rotation to allow the upper needle thread to catch the bobbin thread. Gently pull both threads out towards the back of the machine, making sure the bobbin thread is now coming up through the little hole in the feed dog plate. Place fabric under the presser foot, lower presser foot and as you slowly start to sew, make sure you have the bobbin thread pulled with slight tension out from the back of the needle. This will take up any slack in the bobbin thread and keep it from making a knotted mess. Good luck, I hope this helps.

I cannot get the bobbin thread to catch and pull through the footer wen trying to thread the machine?


Make sure your bobbin is placed in correctly. Thread is counterclockwise as you place bobbin in the metal piece. Pull thread end through sliver in metal piece. Hold on to movable metal latch then lock the bobbin in place. Bobbin should not fall out but is able to rotate. Rotate the wheel on the furthest right of your Singer 1507 machine towards you to move the needle downward. The top thread should then be able to catch and pull up the bobbin thread.

Singer 750 how to rewind the bobbing?


1. Push in indent (illustration 1) on hand wheel disc. This will stop the needle from moving.
2. Place spool of thread on spool pin.
3. Slide spool pin holder/cap (illustration 2) firmly over rim of spool to prevent thread from tangling.

10. Trim thread end from top of bobbin.
11. Press the bobbin winding indent on hand wheel to its original position. If necessary, turn hand wheel to engage needle movement.

Basic instruction to use the Sailrite Ultrafeed LSZ-1


I CAN'T HELP YOU WITH THE MANUAL, BUT I CAN TELL YOU THAT MOST MACHINES THREAD ABOUT THE SAME. IT SOUNDS LIKE THIS MAYBE A COMMERCIAL MACHINE, AND I WANTED TO WRITE JUST TO TELL YOU TO BE VERY CAREFUL. WITH A COMMERCIAL MACHINE YOU CAN SEW OVER YOUR FINGERS WITHOUT EVEN KNOWING. FOR EXAMPLE, SAY A REGULAR HOME SEWING MACHINE HAS 1,500 rpms, THE EQUALIVENT IN A COMMERCIAL MACHINE IS 15,000 RPMS. THERE IS POWER AND SPEED. I AM NOT FAMILIAR WITH THIS PARTICULAR MACHINE, BUT WANTED TO TELL YOU TO JUST PUT THE BANDAIDS ON YOUR FINGERS FIRST, BECAUSE IF IT IS A COMMERCIAL MACHINE, IT WILL REQUIRE YOU TO DO A LITTLE BIT OF PRACTICE FIRST BEFORE YOU "PUT THE PEDDLE TO THE METEL".

Things to try:
1. New needle.
2. Make sure the needle is put in the correct way (there are fronts and backs to the needles).
3. Make perfectly sure that your bobbin is put into the bobbin case correctly (the thread going clock or counter-clock wise as indicated in the directions)
4. Make sure your bobbin thread is wound through the case and out as indicated by the directions

(these points vary DRASTICALLY by model of machine and brand).
5. Holding about 4 or 5 inches of top thread, rotate the flywheel (on the far right of your machine) by hand (don't use the footpedal). The needle should go down, it's thread creates a loop, and the bobbin thread loops through that loop; as you continue to rotate the flywheel, the needle will come back up, bringing its own thread AND the bobbin thread. This is when the machine is ready to sew (when both threads are up).
6. If your machine has been moved around and not very gently, then it is possible that the bobbin case and housing have been jostled out of alignment. If that's the case, then you'll need an experienced sewer to look at it for you - mostly that's a case of minor adjustment.

If you remember that the needle is flying up and down thousands of times in a minute, then having all these elements in perfect alignment makes sense.

Even experienced sewists get stumped with this, especially when working with a new machine.
