SOURCE: Bobbin Case

I'm having a similar problem today. I took out the bobbin case and when I went to put it back in, the whole system locks up. I've tired cleaning, changing needle taking the metal plate and piece that holds bobbin case out and put it all back in after cleaning. Nothing. My symptom is I can't get a complete stitch, the needle goes down, the whole deal acts like it will work and as soon as the arm of the bobbin case gets to 8 o' clock on the gears, It jams and won't hardly move. I cannot pull the bobbin case out easily after this. Perhaps there is someone out there that can help us!

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.

SOURCE: bobbin case and threading singer 6423

This machine has a black plastic bobbin case. You drop the bobbin down into the case with the thread coming off in a clockwise direction. If you look close you will see a slot in the bobbin case where there is the metal pieces. The thread will slide into that and as you pull on it it will work its way through and come out on the other end of the metal. Lay the thread over top of the bobbin case and turn the handwheel to pick up the thread. (make sure you close the slide plate)

Almost all Necchi use a class 15 bobbin & bobbin case, a new case should cost around 7 to 10 dollars!

SOURCE: Problem with spinning bobbin case base of my Pfaff 360 sewing mac

on lockstitch machines with rotary hooks the base[the bit the spoolcase fits in]is held in place by a retaining finger,tip machine back and you will see a long finger with a right angle lug sticking out approx 4/5mm .loosen the screw holding the finger only slightly and spin the base till the top of the base is at the 12.00clock pos.[it will help if you take needle plate off]the lug fits into the cut out of the base.then tighten finger screw and try. if base is jammed you will need a mechanic to dismantle hook and repair and retime the machine.

The bobbin case went ajar while sewing blue jean fabric. I cant figure out to put it back in. Your help is very much appreciated :


Hi Debbie,
This type bobbin case can be a pain to get back in. On photo #1, at the top left you see a silver piece (circled in red) with a rectangular hole in it (circled in green)...take a flat head screw driver and insert it into the slot then twist to the right so the little bar/flange (circled in blue) will twist to the left past the bobbin well wall (marked in neon green). Photo #2 Now the bar/flange (marked in blue) should be on top of the bobbin well wall (marked in neon green). Now set the bobbin case in the bobbin well (marked in pink). Photo #3 as you set the black bobbin case in, kind of angle the flat part that is marked by the orange X so that it will begin to underneath the bar/flange with large orange circle. It won't go in all the way but just start it and then set the rest of the case down in the well. Now twist the entire black case to the right and the flat black are marked with the orange (X) should slide underneath the bar/flange marked with orange circle. The flat piece marked with a purple (X) should be sitting in the area marked with an (X) in the bobbin well. Now take your screwdriver and stick it in the rectangular box and twist it back so the silver piece marked in blue with go back over the edge of the black bobbin case to help hold it in. Hope you can understand my instructions and good luck!

How to thread a bobbin


Hold the bobbin case in your left hand, with your right hand, insert the bobbin with the thread unwinding from the right. Pull the thread through the small slot in the top of the bobbin case, then hold the bobbin tight and pull the thread under the bobbin case tension spring ( a flat piece of metal). When you pull the thread out, there should be some tension on the thread and the bobbin should unwind counter clockwise. If there is no tension on the thread, it's not under the tension spring on the case. If the bobbin turns the wrong way, remove it and turn it around, and put it back in.

How do I change the bobbin in a Janome sewing machine?


There is a small plastic plate where the needle goes down through the foot, remove this cover and you will see the bobbin. Remove the bobbin and refill or selecting another bobbin turn it so that when you pull the thread the bobbin turns anti-clock-wise, slip the bobbin into the black plastic casing, pulling the thread towards the small red arrow at the bottom of the casing, slip the thread between break in the silver metal sleeve pulling it to your left between the 2 pieces of metal this is where the tension on the thread is. You have now changed your bobbin. With the plastic plate still off, hold the top thread with your left hand and with your right slowly turn the wheel, this will send the needle (holding your top thread) down into the bobbin casing and will pick up the bottom thread, pull on the top thread and bring the bottom thread up through the hole in the plate. Replace the plastic plate and recommence sewing. Good luck

MY BOBBIN CASE FELL OUT TWO PIECES HOW DO I PUT IT BACK TOGETHER


I assume you actually mean the metal ring that holds the small round case that the bobbin itself sits in. There are usually two arms that swing in to hold that larger metal ring in place and then there is a plastic and metal piece that sit behind the large metal ring. fit the plastic piece that may look somewhat like a scoop next to the metal piece that usually has the post the the bobbin fits onto and has a quite sharp tooth on it. The metal ring then goes on to hold those two pieces in place and the two arms swing in to hold the metal ring into place. The bobbin or bobbin case now can be put back in. Hint on metal ring placement: they almost always have a notch that goes at the very top where the arm on the bobbin case sits in when it is in place. You may find it easiest to do this with the machine laying on its back so you don't have to have 4 hands to hold everything in place while putting everything back in.
Good luck!

My thread got caught inside where the bobin is so I took out the bobin and the thread was still stuck. I took out the 2 metal pieces that hold the bobin in place and now I can't get them back in. Help?!


Insert the small metal piece into the big piece. Try turning it in a circle one way. It should fall into place. It it doesn't, take the small piece, flip it, and turn again in a circle. It's very easy. Or go to ebay under bobbins so that you can see a picture.

Unable to replace bobbin case back into machine


Here's how I do it. I hold the thread with my left hand, just like the thread wikk be pulled up. With the right hand pull the metal tab toward me, hold it open while pushing bobbin in and twisting. When bobbin stops turning and feels seated, then release the metal tab to lock. good luck!

Can't raise bobbin thread on Singer Prelude


Make sure the needle is in the machine correctly- all the way up into the needle bar, make sure that it is threaded correctly, etc. If this all checks out ok, take the bobbin case out of the machine. There are two ears on either side of the bobbin case- turn the left one to the left and the right one to the right. Remove the silver ring, and inspect the piece of metal that the ring came off of (looks like a circle with the top cut off). You have to locate the hook which is the piece that looks like a half moon inside the big round metal piece. Locate the tip of it, turn the handwheel toward you until the needle is in the lowest position, at this point the tip of the hook should be flush with top of the left side of the cut off circle. If this is not so, your machine needs to be re-timed. If that is the case, I would need to see a picture of the bottom of the machine so that I am able to determine what needs adjusting.

Can't reinsert bobbin holder


You may not have the bobbin case seated properly in the bobbin well. Make sure the flat edges go underneath the metal flanges that are there to hold it in. I'm attaching photos of a similar problem I answered earlier that might help you understand how it goes in.

Below are the directions I sent with the photos...I hope this helps you! Good luck!

"This type of case can be a pain. First in photo 1, on the silver flange marked in a red circle there is a rectangular hole marked with a green circle. using a flat head screwdriver, insert into the rectangle and turn to the right. This should move the flange tongue marked with a blue circle towards the back white wall of the bobbing well. In Photo 2 take the black bobbin case and place in the bobbin well area marked with the pink spiral. Tilt the case slightly to insert the flat tongue marked with an orange X on the black bobbin case under the flange marked with an orange X in the bobbin well. Now let the black bobbin case sit in the bobbin well marked with the pink spiral. Now in Photo 3, you want to turn the black bobbin case to the right so the flat tongue marked with the orange X will go underneath the flange marked with an orange X. The other flat area marked with a purple X on the black bobbin case should line up with the purple X in the bobbin well. Once the black bobbin case is seated in, repeat the steps from Photo 1 in reverse to get the silver flange back over the bobbin case to hold it in place. I hope you can understand my directions and I hope this helps! Good Luck!"

Threading machine


The machine is relatively simple to thread. This is what I do and I've had no threading problems. 1. Put thread spool on the spool pin and put spool guard over spool pin to hold spool onto pin. 2. Take thread and put it under the bent tab by the circle tensioner. bring the thread around the right side of the circle tensioner and bring around the front of the circle tensioner thing back to the top hook on the far left side of the machine. 3. Take the thread around the backside of the top hook think until it threads through the flat piece on the left side of it. 4. Bring the thread down through the first (right side) channel and under the plastic piece to the second (left side) channel. 5. Bring the thread up the second channel and around the moving thread holder and past it's flat metal piece to hold it. 6. Tuck the thread around the small wire thread holder below the needle screw. This may take a few passes to catch it. 7. Thread the needle from the front and run the thread between the teeth of the presser foot. 8. Put a bobbin in the bobbin case so that the thread pulls off the bobbin from the left side of the bobbin if you look at it from above. 9. There is a small channel in the bobbin case that is covered by the bobbin tension flat piece. Pull the bobbin thread through this channel and into the empty space where the needle thread will catch. 10. Place the bobbin case into the machine with the little set bobbin arm pointed to the sky so that it fits into the machine without wiggling to the right or the left. 11. Turn the, uhhh brain fart, the hand wheel until the needle comes back up with the bobbin thread hooked over the needle thread. Take a narrow thing, like scissors or a seam ripper and pull both threads until the bobbin thread comes up. Now your machine is threaded. Use these directions with the pictures in the book to get this machine threaded.
