I don't know, but I can suggest a workaround to you. I'm not in live with their bobbin winding system anyway, but that's personal. You can purchase a bobbin winder; you can get one for about $25 from WalMart, and if you order it online and pick it up at a store, delivery is free. It does a much better job anyway.

SOURCE: Bobbin stuck on bobbin winder, how do I get it off? it will not budge!

Is thread under bobbin? can you turn it? can you pull the thread off the bobbin and then remove it? Bobbin that comes with machine may not be right one. Right one has a light blue tint and a slightly domed top.

SOURCE: Problem with winding thread onto

first you must make sure the winder shaft is turning by moving it to the right a little and see if you can turn it by hand.
If it is turning ok then there is a rubber ring on the other end of the winder shaft and it should come in contact with the drive which turnes it ,if it is worn it might need a new rubber.

SOURCE: I have a singer 503A. The bobbin winder will not

When you have the winder rubber on try and turn the winder by hand, if it does not move the chances are the winder has seized, if the winder wheel is moving but not the spindle then the grip (thread) has worn, if you cannot move the whole winder by hand and it has seized you need to get some WD40 and spray a few drops down the spindle, take an electric drill and put it over the top of the spindle and switch it on slowly and it will probably free it off, be aware of oil splashing out.

SOURCE: My bobbin won't catch on the bobbin winder, the metal post spins but the plastic singer style bobbin won't spin with it. What's wrong?

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

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.

I cannot thread the bobbing....threads for a few seconds stops and locks up with a buzzing sound.


Is it the correct bobbin? Is it sitting snugly on bobbin winder? Does the winder spin freely when it is empty?

Three possible causes: 1.Bobbin not push fully down the bobbin winder spindle
2.Need to push bobbin winder spindle to the left before you can wind the bobbin
3.The bobbin winder spindle rubber ring has worn out. This will need a local technician to fix it.

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

If you have pushed the winder over and it is not turning either the winder rubber has worn down one side, or there is residue on the winder rubber, or the bwinder has seized through lack of oil which is quite common, with the winder in the off position see if you can spin it by hand, if you can't then chances are it has seized, put some WD40 oil on the top of the spindle and leave it overnight, then put an electric drill over the top of the spindle and switch on slowly, that usually works.

Bobbin rewind problems


Either the winder rubber is worn down one side, or the spindle has seized, take the top off and check and see if you can turn the winder by hand, if not then it has seized and the only way to free it is to put a couple of drops of WD40 on the spindle, put an electric drill on the end of the spindle and start the drill very slowly.
