SOURCE: Bobbin Carriage clanking noise, yet the machine sews fine??

If your bobbin area is making a noise, then do NOT sew with the machine until a reputable technician looks at it. You may have thrown something just a little off line - not enough to affect sewing NOW, but it could easily cause troubles down the line.

I suggest you call ahead and talk directly to the repair person - not to the sales person. Ask if you can bring in the machine while he/she is in the shop so they can listen while you run it.

You aren't trying to cheat the store out of the repair charge, just ensuring that the problem is diagnosed correctly.

You paid lots of money for this machine - it deserves good care.

SOURCE: Kenmore 385. 11607 needle jams into shuttle or shuttle race

I had the same problem with cleaning and jamming and this might sound silly, but when you're in the middle of trying to fix it remember to look up see that it is threaded up top. I did everything the pp's suggested and when they didn't work I realized the top thread wasn't still threaded around the tension thing anymore. After rethreading it, it worked fine. But I DID reduce the amount of thread on the bobbin at the same time as Drazil suggested.

SOURCE: Can't reassemble shuttle hook and shuttle race

the hook driver (still in machine) is 1/2 moon shape. The hook is also 1/2 moon shape. If you set the machine on its back, it's easier. Set the hook 1/2 into the other 1/2 of the hook driver to make a circle. Then put the hook cover on (machine still on its back) with the tabs for the twist locks pointed out. Needle gaurd to the top of the machine. Snap the twist locks in place and viola!

How do I replace the bobbin hook after cleaning my Brother XL-3030?


you may be able to enlarge the manual page:

Brother XL 3030 User Manual Page 60

The hook (half-moon piece) needs to go in first, but you may need to wiggle it to seat it and then hold it while you fasten the outer retaining ring (hook race). Flip the levers up to hold the ring in place. Then install the bobbin case.

FWIW, my machine oiling instructions say to apply a drop of good quality oil on the outer edge of the hook race lip where the hook rubs as it turns. But, your manual should explain where to oil.

MY BOBBIN CASE HAS FALLEN APART AND I'M NOT SURE HOW TO PUT THE PIECES BACK TOGETHER.


Sounds like you are describing the hook. Perhaps the owner's manual would be assistance. We don't know the make/model of your machine so are really unable to help. There are some videos on YouTube that show how to install a shuttle and bobbin case, but machines differ.

Bernina 130. The upper needle is working but it does not seem to be abLe to catch the bottom thread. Had this machine for 12 years so I know how to put the bobbin in. Any ideas?


Firstly, I assume you've cleaned-out under the stitch-plate and after removing the bobbin, have removed the hook/shuttle, cleaned the hook race and given the hook race a drop of oil. Whilst you've got the hook/shuttle out, just check that the point is not damaged. Also, if you've got the lightweight hook/shuttle often fitted to these machines (it's black plastic with a metal outer/point), make sure there's no needle damage to the plastic - sometimes this can catch the thread as the hook rotates, preventing the loop from being picked-up. After doing that, check if you can sew straight stitch with the needle in centre, fully left and fully right. If it works in one location but not the others, there could be a number of issues such as timing/synchronisation or possibly the needle bar is offset front-to-back so that there's too large a spacing between the needle and hook.

I took out the bobbin case and then the shuttle race. Now I can't remember which one I should put back in first.


Clean the shuttle area, the hook and the cover with a toothbrush, removing all lint and debris. Place one small drop of sewing machine oil on the rim of the hook. Place the hook back in the raceway and replace the cover. Snap the two retaining levers back to hold the cover in place.

Where is the shuttle race on a Bernina Artista 180? I'd like to be exact as to where to put the drop of oil.


Just to the left of the bobbin case you will see a small lever. Remove the bobbin case and push the lever and that will release the latch which holds the race cover and shuttle (hook).

Clean well with a toothbrush and place one small drop of oil on the edge of the hook where it makes contact with the raceway. Place the hook back and snap the race cover back on.

Bobbin don't turn


In the shuttle area there is a silver round piece- called the shuttle race cover. It has a black ear on the right and a black ear on the left. Push the right ear to the right, and the left ear to the left and the silver ring should come out. Behind the silver ring is the bobbin case stuck in the hook. Remove that, jiggle it, move it, just work the bobbin case out of the hook. Now put the hook back in the machine. In the machine there is a driver that looks like a half moon. Your hook looks like a half moon- make a full circle out of both of them. Re-install the race cover, pushing the left ear to the right and the right ear to the left to secure the race cover, and your problem should be solved.

Shuttle hook


Hello ZAckofun
The shuttle hook will be covered by a plate called the RACE. Its a flat steel plate that sits over the hook and is snapped in place by 2 black coloured snaps.
Looks like you are trying to operate the machine without the race on. try that and it should work.
