Ask at a shop that sells the brand of machine you have or a Servicing Centre that does all brands, they may be able to canibalise an old one....you didn't mention the make of machine, so it is a little tricky to be more specific.

How do I replace the spool pin on XR65 sewing machine

Posted on Sep 11, 2012

This is from a Model 5160; might it work?
Two ways.. either put the new spool pin in the other extra hole to the left of the trap door on top
OR take out the two bigger screws on the top cover that hold it in, also take off the knobs on the front sliders (patterns selection) and remove the top cover. Push the old pin out from the inside with nail or something similar and replace. Posted on Feb 03, 2010

HOW TO I WIND BOBBIN ON SINGER 347


If you mean the Singer Style Mate 347, open the face plate and remove the old bobbin. Then, the first step is to hold the hand wheel and loosen the stop-motion screw inside the hand wheel. (Keep the hand wheel from turning with one hand and turn the stop-motion screw towards the front of the machine.) Place your empty bobbin (hole away from the machine) on the spindle near the bobbin winder switch. Feed the thread from the spool on the spool pin through the eyelet on the top of the machine (near the top thread take up) and then down to and around the bobbin tension disc below the on-off power switch. Pass the thread through from the inside of the bobbin to the outside of the bobbin. Move the bobbin winder switch to On and hold onto the end of the thread. Start the machine and let a few winds get placed on the bobbin then stop for a minute. Cut the thread near the bobbin. Restart and continue winding more thread onto the bobbin until you have enough thread or the bobbin is full (it will stop automatically). Move the bobbin winder switch to off and tighten the stop-motion screw.

For pictures, see pages 6-7 in the manual. It's available as a PDF here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/9b8c1ca7584c2bea7837ca4bf5338af7f1b5380e.pdf . (These are pages 8-9 of the PDF.)

I hope this helps.

Sewing machine design


It sounds like the spool cap is broken or defective. It should fit snugly on the spool pin. If it is constantly falling off, then try finding a replacement. The horizontal spool pin design helps the machine pull the thread off the spool because the thread spool does not need to spin. The added pressure of spinning a thread spool contributes to tension issues (especially if you are using large thread spools that are so common now days).

On new machines, frequently the thread cutter is on the back of the presser foot lifter.

The thread guide above the needle is usually threaded from the left side because the thread tends to be pulled toward the right.

Unfortunately, what you are experiencing are pretty much common functions with most newer sewing machines, so even changing machines may not result in any greater degree of satisfaction.

Threading a bernina


Depends on the model, for detail but basically: Ensure the takeup arm / needle is at the top of its motion - with electronic models this is easiest done just by 'blipping' the foot controller and the needle will automatically return to top. Put your spool of thread on the spool pin. On older models with the vertical spool pins ALWAYS use a felt pad underneath to prevent the spool spinning when the thread is drawn off. On later models with a horizontal spool pin, hold the spool in place with the correct size retainer, with the larger diameter facing away from the spool. Make sure the foot is up (this is important). Draw thread off the spool and route it through the pre-tensioner on the back of the machine, then through the slot until it passes through the tension discs next to the tension control. The thread is then brought down the right-hand-side of the takeup arm cover, and pulled-up the left-hand side (it should be pulled into the check spring at the bottom, automatically. Pass the thread around the right-hand-side of the takeup arm and then the left-hand-side so that the thread is left running through the takeup arm. Drop the presser foot. Route the thread behind the lower thread guide at the bottom of the takeup arm cover and then through the thread guide at the bottom of the needle bar, just above where the screw that retains the needle is situated. The thread guide might be a simple loop of wire or a clip on the botom of the needle bar. Thread the thread through the eye of the needle either manually or using the needle threader, if fitted and off you go. It's important to have the foot raised when routing the thread through the upper tension discs to make sure the thread sits properly within the discs rather than just going over the top of them. Raising the foot holds the tension discs open.

After starting to sew the sewing machine stop. It seems to ne getting tight up at the top of the machine. It is threaded correctly. Do you have any suggestions?


This is not what you want to hear but... recheck the threading yet again. This time totally unthread it and start again. Look at the spool that holds the thread and where the thread is coming off of the spool itself. Look to see if the little notch you take the thread out of when you first open a new spool is catching the thread as it turns on the spool. If there's a possibility that is happening make sure that end of the spool is at the top. Sometimes the thread will get catch and therefore refuse to move when it is on the bottom side of the spool.

Also check to make sure the thread isn't wrapped around any of the guides and once again check to see that it is threaded correctly.

If it isn't just the thread breaking but the machine itself seeming to lock up and not move then you need to take it in for servicing.

Plastic spool holder for 334 bernette holds telescope thread guide screws in to attach to back of machine - this has snapped due to something falling on it have been told no longer availabe - machine is...


You could buy a generic thread stand aerial to overcome this problem.

These items are targetted at machine embroidery enthusiasts using multiple thread colours but could be easily modified to hold your 4 cones.

Or try www.sewingpartsonline.com and see if they carry this part.

I love my 334D and have paid for major repairs to it rather than replace with the lighter weight new models I found available.

Owner's manual


I found a website for you that might help. They have a lot of kenmore manuals including one similiar to your model#148.12051. The manual opened as model 1205 so maybe searching for your model as the 1201 might help too. hope this helps! =)

How do i replace the spool pin on my singer sewing machine model # 3314?


Two ways.. either put the new spool pin in the other extra hole to the left of the trap door on top OR take out the two bigger screws on the top cover that hold it in, also take off the knobs on the front sliders (patters selection) and remove the top over. Push the old pin out from the inside with nail or something simila and replace.. simple. Do you have an extra spool pin you can share?
