Problem with bobbin case - new machine Singer CE 100

Hi - I bought a new machine, but not from a Singer dealer, so they won't accept my warranty. I believe this is a manufacturing problem, I am now reading a bout it. After just barely using the machine, the bobbin case slips out of line, causing the needle to hit go through it, snapping the needle and not working again. I have already sunk $400 into the machine and new bobbin cases, and I have not been able to use it at all. Any suggestions or advice would be great. I cannot return the machine (from a private party), and I don't really have the money to put more into it. I will not sell the machine in its current condition. Thanks for your help!

Re: Problem with bobbin case - new machine Singer CE 100

My problem is solved (I think...that is a knock on wood kind of thing). Upon recommendation from another Futura user, I remove and clean my bobbin case and I put a drop of oil in the little hole under my bobbin case about every 5th or 6th monogram use. AND, I pitched all of my bobbins that were 15 and not 15J (I had some that were 15 and they were the culprit as well.) I have had no more problem. It seemed the least bit of lint caused me a lot of birdnesting. I also stopped using rayon thread and use only polyester and bobbin fill in the bobbin. I have got to say I am thoroughly enjoying my machine these days. Please try these things before giving up on this so user friendly machine.

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.

Bobbin case keeps popping out of my CE-100 Futura. Not sure whether or not the case is in there correctly.

Raise the needle to it's highest position and the case should go right into the shuttle.

Refer to the maintenance section of the manual for your machine.

If you do not have a manual, you can get one at the Brother website.

You're best bet is probably to buy a new bobbin casing. They're usually about $25 or so and you should be able to find one on eBay by searching for Singer (your machine name and model) under the Crafts category. The silver plate on top of the area covering where you place your bobbin into has screws you need to carefully remove (careful not to loose them!). If you need to, take pictures with your cellphone or digital camera as you remove the old bobbin casing so you can see how to put the new one in.

Bobbin case is popping out, and machine is birdnesting

Usually when this happens the bobbin is in wrong, replace it make sure the thread is going out the right way, make sure there is no lint or small pieces of thread around or underneath the bobbin area. Make sure you thread it with the foot up. Also make sure you are usng the right bobbin for the machine. They can easy get mxed up.

Needle keeps hitting bobbin case on my Singer CE 100 Futura, it is now jammed completely. Why is this?

either your bobbin case isnt installed right or the machine's timing is messed up try to get needle loose or completly out is preferred then try turning it and see if it comes unjammed if so take your bobbin case out and reinstall it making sure it is in the fit right if this dont solve it then you need to get timing set (not recommended to do at home get pro to do it ) hope this helps you

Bobbin case

Hi Anjulie
Singer has come up with another clip on the bobbin case- you will have to take your machine to a dealer for that.  They also have a boobin cover with two depressions on it to keep the bobbin better in place - ask your dealer for it.
