SOURCE: My bobbin winder stopped working on my Brother

I think that I would call Brother at 1-877-276-8437 and ask them if this is a warranty issue. They may have a quick fix for you.

Take off the panel that conceals the lamp (see your instruction manual) and you will see another screw that needs to be removed before you can take the larger back panel off.

Bobbin winder doesnt work


The bobbin winder tires on most of the new lower to medium end brother machines have a tendency to sort of melt. I honestly don't know what causes it, but basically the rubber ring that rides the handwheel and causes the bobbin winder to turn will liquify and drip off the bobbin winder and then re-solidify. It would be best to take your machine to a repair shop, to get the tire replaced and to have the old tire sludge cleaned out, though if you are adventurous, you could try it yourself. You can order a tire at the link I've provided, but most sewing machine repair shops can get you one as well.

Bobbin winder shaft wont spin


If you take it apart, you'll void the remaining warranty. The usual cause is not getting the door open completely and/or thread wrapped around the spindle.

I have a brother ES-2000 sewing machine. My bobbin winder stopped working due to disintegrated bobbin winder tire. I just replaced the tire. When I try to wind a bobbin, it spins for a few seconds and...


you may need to take it in for repair. Try spinning your winder spindle. It is possible the spindle has seized and the motor is trying to work to hard to spin it. If it is seized you could try some natural lubricator or WD But you would need to make sure you don't spray any on any other parts other then the metal spindle itself....Hope this helps

I am trying to wind the bobbin following to the directions in the manual. However, when I "gently" press the foot controller to wind the thread around the bobbin, this does rotate at all. I do...


Have you disengaged the clutch? is the needle going up and down at the same time. If needle is still moving, then clutch is not disenaged. This is usually a knob inside the flywheel, or a button on the flywheel, machines will vary. Just recheck your manual and ensure that you have disenaged the drive to the needle.

Now check that the bobbin winder is engaged. On most machines, you need to move the bobbin and the spindle it sits on over against a stop to engage the bobbin winding mechanism on top of the machine.

If you have done all this and the bobbin just isn't turning on the spindle at all, then it may be the rubber ring just inside the case which drives against the flywheel, has worn out. Proper name is "Bobbin Winder Tyre".

This is a link to the part I mean http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/bobbin-winder-tire-brother-x55238051.aspx there is no image but they look like a little black rubber ring and being rubber, they do wear, perish and crack with age.

So if you are able to open up the machine covers you may well be able to see this part and replace it yourself. Or just confirm the diagnosis. They are not expensive to replace.

Bobbin winder on Brother XL2230 not working properly; hesitation in that area is causing bobbin to wind erratically.


You can take the machine in for service or purchase a Sidewinder Bobbin Winder.

Service begins around $60 plus parts and the Sidewinder is less than $30.
