I have a Singer 99-13 with knee control. I wound bobbins but can't get it to sew. Is there something that turns it over to sewing? Thanks. Karen

On the 99-13, you wind the bobbin with the balance wheel in the stop motion position. Thus during bobbin winding, the needle mechanism is disconnected from the rest of the machine. You probably need to tighten the set screw on the balance wheel. The screw is in the center of the balance wheel on the right hand side of the sewing machine. Hold the balance wheel while you turn the screw away from yourself. (You hold the balance wheel and turn the screw over towards you for winding.)

The manual for the 99-13 is available from Singer on their manuals page: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/9d4377811af9ffbbaa1b8efd50ea962c142a66d9.pdf . Look at figure 5 on page 7 (page 4 of the PDF) and then page 10-11 (page 6 of the PDF) for the bobbin winding directions.

I hope this helps.

Bobbin refuses to be wound on self-winding bobbin machine. Bobbin does not turn. The thread is winding continously on the bottom of the bobbin basket. Need help.


Just off the top of my so-called head, it sounds like something in the bobbin area is not seated correctly. However, I would recommend that you do a search on FB and Yahoo interest groups (also on PSW software); it's members are MOST helpful, and will be glad to work with you to resolve this problem.

Why is thread is making multiple loops around bobbin


are you using pre-wound bobbins? or bobbins you've wound yourself? they might be too full or over wound (too much thread) this happens with pre-wound or some you've wound yourself. Also make sure you are loading the bobbin correctly. You also might try another bobbin, as sometimes they can get warped if they are the plastic kind.

Bobbin keeps jamming while I am sewing


Check these two things first.. Pull the bobbin out and look at how it is wound. Is it evenly wound across the bobbin ? Is the bobbin moving with the thread coming out the right way? ie not put in the bobbin casing backwards.

Try a different bobbin to make sure it is not the above problems. If it sews ok then there's something with the way the bobbin is wound or inserted. Also make sure when you put the bobbin back in the machine you feel/hear it click into place.

If that's ok then check your needle to see if it is bent, or in wrong or the wrong type of needle for the machine (tho most new machines all can use regular needles...older machines sometimes required specific needles made for that brand). Try changing needles.

Singer 626 Not sewing


First, give Mom all your Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
Then, be sure the bobbin-winding function is not still engaged. Check it again, since on some machines, the mechanism has to be backed off until you hear a click, or until a light turns off. If that's done, check the tension on your top thread, since that's easier, then on your bobbin thread.
If the bobbin didn't get wound evenly (Like if you're hurrying) that will mess up its ability to let the thread flow out, so see if the thread on the bobbin looks as smooth as a new spool of thread.
I hope you got your costume together & had fun aside for that frustration. :^)
