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: Singer Sewing Machine model 9224. Bobbin thread

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.

Let me know.

When winding the bobbin thread slipped off tension disk and wound around the bobbin shaft. When I removed the thread the bobbin will not fill with thread.


Well, you COULD get this fixed -- or you could purchase an inexpensive bobbin winder and skip the whole issue. Does a better job, too.

HOW TO I WIND BOBBIN ON SINGER 347


If you mean the Singer Style Mate 347, open the face plate and remove the old bobbin. Then, the first step is to hold the hand wheel and loosen the stop-motion screw inside the hand wheel. (Keep the hand wheel from turning with one hand and turn the stop-motion screw towards the front of the machine.) Place your empty bobbin (hole away from the machine) on the spindle near the bobbin winder switch. Feed the thread from the spool on the spool pin through the eyelet on the top of the machine (near the top thread take up) and then down to and around the bobbin tension disc below the on-off power switch. Pass the thread through from the inside of the bobbin to the outside of the bobbin. Move the bobbin winder switch to On and hold onto the end of the thread. Start the machine and let a few winds get placed on the bobbin then stop for a minute. Cut the thread near the bobbin. Restart and continue winding more thread onto the bobbin until you have enough thread or the bobbin is full (it will stop automatically). Move the bobbin winder switch to off and tighten the stop-motion screw.

For pictures, see pages 6-7 in the manual. It's available as a PDF here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/9b8c1ca7584c2bea7837ca4bf5338af7f1b5380e.pdf . (These are pages 8-9 of the PDF.)

I hope this helps.

Bobbin won't wind on Singer futura CE-100


My singer hasn't wound bobbins for years and I don't care because I use a Side Winder bobbin winder. It's much easier than takining the thread off the machine anyway. Available from Hancock, Jo Ann or even Wal Mart for about $30.

Cotton reel on top, take the thread from the reel to the left and over the top guide, straight down throught the tension discs, back up to the take up lever making sure the lever is at the top, through the lever right to left, straight down through any guides and thread needle front to back.
To wind the bobbin, reel of cotton on top, bobbin on bobbin winder making sure it is pushed to the left, take the thread to the left and round the small wheel and back to the winder, wind the thread round a few times on the bobbin, push the windewr to the right, and loosen the stop motion in the balance wheel.

Bobbin stuck on bobbin winder. wont release


If, it is a plastic bobbin and you mean the bobbin thread is too tight and the bobbin will not move, take a art razor blade and start cutting the thread to release it. Sometimes, the plastic grabs the spindle when it is wound too tight, you may have to take pliers and break the bobbin to get it off.

How do i add thread to the bobbin? i have wound it and placed on the knob, and pulled out the wheel but nothing is happening..


when you place the bobbin on the bobbin winder on top of your machine, you then push the lever closest to it into the bobbin until it clicks. most newer machines will automatically quit using the needle when you are winding a bobbin if its an older machine there may be a push button on the wheel or you may have to loosen the knob inside the wheel to keep the needle from operating , you then use the foot pedal to wind just as you would to sew. Bobbin will automatically pop when full, be sure to redo anything that you had to undo to wind bobbin.

Make sure that you have it wound around the thread guide the correct way, or else you have no tension, and that your bobbin pushed against the bobbin winder. Study your manual, and if you need one with bigger print go to www.singerco.com and download one for free, then adjust your text size. Good luck

Threading bobbin on singer stylist 522


To wind a bobbin put the cotton reel on the top pin, take the thread to the left and round the little wheel and back to the bobbin that should be on the winder, wind the thread round a few times to take a grip, release the stop motion in the balance wheel, turn the winder button so the winder moves to the balance wheel and press on the foot control slowly.
When you put the bobbin in the bobbin case make sure it turns anti clockwise.
