IMPORTANT: Always use a metal bobbin, or the magnetized bobbin case will not be able to function properly, resulting in a lack of tension on the bobbin thread.
bobbin - 9a8cb19.jpg Step 1:
Turn the handwheel counter-clockwise until the needle is in its highest position. Raise the presser foot lifter. Pull the slide plate forward and remove the empty bobbin.
Step 2:
Place the filled bobbin into the bobbin case, and pull about 4" of thread from the new bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin turns clockwise when the thread is pulled, or you will not have correct tension when you begin to sew.
Step 3:
Hold the needle thread loosely with your left hand. Turn the handwheel toward you, first lowering the needle, and continuing to turn the handwheel until the needle comes to its highest position.
Step 4:
Lightly pull up the needle thread and pick up the bobbin thread which will appear through the needle plate slot. Then pull both threads to the back of the machine leaving a 4" thread tail. Push slide plate back in.

Hope this helps. -samson39

My singer pixie plus will not pick up the bobbin thread. how do i fix this.


Install a brand new needle and verify the machine is threaded correctly. Also, use the correct needle for the machine, thread and fabric. If that doesn't help, then the machine is probably out of time and needs service.

ORDER BOBBIN CASE FOR LSS505 sINGER pIXIE pLUS


Take one of your bobbins to the local fabric store, Singer dealer, or sewing machine repair shop and compare with what they have in stock. Be sure the bobbins you buy are metal as your machine will not work with plastic bobbins.

How should the bobbin and casing be lined up?
