SOURCE: bobbin compartment trouble

Put the needle in the up position. Tilt the machine back with one hand and lay the hook in its position on what is called the hookrace. The little ledge inside the the circle opposite the other part that moves. Then take the outer ring and lay that in over top of it. There is a small pin on the bottom that fits into a notch. The two small nubs should be on the outside, then click the two black knobs over those. Put the bobbin in the case and the thread through the notch up under the tension spring on the case. Looking at the back of the case, pull the thread and in most machines the bobbin should turn clock-wise. Now snap it onto the post.
Your good to go.
Good luck.

SOURCE: Bobbin Case

ok Sim this is a bit tricky but not to tricky first turn the handwheel toward you until the hook is at one o clock postion then slide the case without the bobbin in into the hook area you may have to work the handwheel back and forth alittle but it should slide in just remember that the case should ride in the rim. also take the needle out first that way you wont get stuck trust me it happiens.

Take the thread completly off the machine and rethread it making sure it goes thru the tension wheel properly.
FYI Loops on the bottom-- Problem is in the threadding.. Loops on the top, problem is with the bobbin.

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.

Hi there. I have a singer 507 machine which was sewing fine until I changed thread in bobbin and now the feeder teeth are not moving to feed thE fabric thru, not sure what I may have done - Help!


the bobbin has nothing to do with the feed teeth
however it is possible that at some point you moved the forward /reverse knob lever to middle where the teeth will not move

Need help reassembling bobbin area.


You didn't state what model you have, and that makes it tougher to help you.

I'm going to take a guess here that the part that fell out is a silver U shaped part located on the right near the bottom of the bobbin basket (holds the case). If that's the case, it's called a "cushion spring" and can just be reinserted by hand. It is part of the assembly that prevents the case from moving while the thread is unspooling from the bobbin during operation.

My daughter tried to remove a jammed bobbin on my singer machine. The bobbin holding mechanism fell apart. Is there a diagram to show how the parts fit together?


looking straight on at the area where assembly goes, First clean and oil area, the jam was likely caused by accumulated dust or a small piece of thread . You should have three pieces, four including the bobbin itself. first piece to be replaced has a center post this piece goes into the machine by fitting it to the bobbin area, it will only go in one way so when it fits into place you will know. the next piece is a ring this piece has a small piece of metal attached to the top when looking at it correctly the two screws will be on top and there should be two indentions. first one is at 3 oclock and the other is at 9 oclock fit this piece into machine and there should be a lever on either side that turns around and rests in to indentions. replace your bobbin in the bobbin case ,be sure to thread the case correctly and load into newly assembled bobbin area making sure that it clicks into pplace

If the plate is moving up and down eithetr the teth are set far too high pushing the plate up or the teeth are set too far forward, I would go for the first, if the teeth are coming up well above the slot they are too high, they should be set so that when you look alongside the plate you can just see the top of the teeth, you can adjust the teeth by adjusting the screws underneath the machine where the teeth are.

Bobbin jumps out of place while I'm sewing and jumbles the thread. I took it to a repairman, it worked for about 3 weeks. Now, same old problem.


I had a similar problem but found it only happened when I used plastic bobbins. I've been using metal bobbins and haven't had the problem again. Hope this helps.

Singer futura model 900 sewing machine


Recently had same problem. Underneath the bobbin area on the bottom of the machine is a small white plastic piece that resembles a fan. Singer calls this the bobbin cam actuator. It is usually cracked along the sleeve that fits over the metal pin, bar? This is the mechanism that lifts the bobbin when it is wound. When its broken it can't lift the bobbin to be wound properly.
