Bobbin won't wind the thread

I have a Brother CS-8072. The bobbin threader suddenly stopped working. How do I fix it? I can't figure out how to take the machine apart. It's all plastic, so I don't want to force it. Thanks!

I have a brother CS-8072 sewing machine and need help winding bobbin. I followed the instructions in the manual but it didn't work.

What were the results of your bobbin-winding attempt?

Make sure the thread path is correct for bobbin winding and that the thread is seated in the tensioner. Most machines, it is better to NOT wind fast--although your machine says the opposite (???).

It looks like your thread comes off the spool goes to the left, through a guide, down to the front of the tensioner and the doubles back to go behind the tensioner before going to the bobbin. (Looks the thread goes counter-clockwise in front of the tensioner, then doubles back and goes clockwise around the back of the tensioner.)

Also, the problem may have to do with the spool type you are using. Try a different thread and spool--AVOID old or bargain bin threads.

If you still have problems, there is a stand-alone bobbin winder (called Sidewinder) for about $30 that is helpful to have. (Verify it will work with your machine's bobbins!) It is great because you can wind bobbins without unthreading your machine and it saves wear and tear on your machine.

Cs-8072 Red light

It's just a thought, but the red light will or should come on as soon as you push the bobbin winder in position to wind a bobbin. The red light should turn off when you push the bobbin winder back to the original position. I can't tell you how many times I have been dumbfounded after having done this. I hope this helps.

My machine is suddenly locking up and the thread is getting tangled underneath the fabric.

Check the bobbin tension and that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder.

Bobbin thread won't engage.

The bobbin case is not in the shuttle.

Raise the needle to it's highest position.

Lift the lever on the back of the bobbin case and hold it open as you insert the case into the shuttle; arm on the case pointing up. You may have to turn a bit to the left or right - it will click when in place.

After following instructions on winding the bobbin for the fast bobbin winding system, the bobbin is not threading

If the bobbin spool is spinning, it will thread.

Take the end of the thread through one of the little holes in the side of the bobbin spool and pull out about 8" of thread. Hold onto it as the bobbin begins to spin.

After the thread has wound 5 - 6 turns, stop the machine and cut off the thread end. Continue the winding process.

Threading bobbin on singer stylist 522

To wind a bobbin put the cotton reel on the top pin, take the thread to the left and round the little wheel and back to the bobbin that should be on the winder, wind the thread round a few times to take a grip, release the stop motion in the balance wheel, turn the winder button so the winder moves to the balance wheel and press on the foot control slowly.
When you put the bobbin in the bobbin case make sure it turns anti clockwise.

The thread off the bobbin gets jammed everytime. How can I fix th

It sounds like you are not threading the machine properly. The best way is to make sure the presser foot is in the up position. This keeps the tension disc open and the thread slides into the tension easier. Also make sure you have the bobbin in and threaded correctly into the bobbin case.

Unable to wind bobbin on Brother Css-8150 stopped suddenly

Checking to see if in fact that the bobbin shaft is turning. Run it without any bobbin on the bobbin shaft. Make sure that it is push over in the correct position and run it. I checked on mine and it does make the whirring sound and the the shaft does spin. Also check underneath the shaft to see if there is any thread wrapped around it. ( I had problems with that in the past). I hope this helps,
