Bobbin winder is only thing that works

My bobbin winder appears to be stuck on. The machine will not sew but will wind bobbins. Is this something I can repair or does it need to go to the shop? Thank you

What model are you talking about? For my older Husqvarna machine you had to pull the bobbin winding bit out to wind the bobbin, then push it back in when you were done.

I'm sewing on a husqvarna 1100. After winding a bobbin a tiny black semi-circle flew off. Now the machine refuses to sew...only want to wind bobbins. Is this be something small that I can fix?


Hello Kitty
The 'tiny black semi-circle' sounds like the bobbin winder or a part of it. That 'little' part has to go back onto the bobbin winder, or else the bobbins will over-fill. However, if the bobbin winder (the 'thing' that holds the bobbin in place while winding) is pushed toward the bobbin spindle ... pull it back and the machine will 'let' you sew. But still no winding bobbins. Refer to pages 10 and 11 of your manual, or download it for free from:
http://manuals.husqvarnaviking.com/
The part that came off, should be installed to factory specifications which a qualified technician will be able to instal.
Hopefully this will let you finish what you started.

Please give me a thumbs up if this is helpful.

I wound my bobbin on my model 1100, pulled it out, treaded the machine, and cannot stop the bobbin filler from turning. Now the machine does not want to sew. Help.


Sounds like the bobbin winder activator is stuck. As long as the bobbin winder is activated, your machine will not sew since that is a safety function.

You might try flipping the bobbin winder activator back and forth and see if that releases it--or try winding some other bobbins. If it will not release, then you may need to take the machine for service.

If the bobbin winder is worn or defective, you can look at purchasing a stand-alone bobbin winder (called "Sidewinder") available online through Amazon, JoAnn's, etc. for about $30. It saves wear-n-tear on your machine plus allows you to quickly wind multiple bobbins without unthreading the machine. You can get battery operated or one that also has an AC cord.

My 1130 bobbin threader turns, but will not wind thread.


Check that the bobbin winder is snapped all the way over.

Sorry, unable to provide more help, but a standalone bobbin winder may be helpful. You can find one brand (called "Sidewinder") at sewing stores like JoAnn's or online for ~ $30. Just verify that your bobbins will work (some Singer bobbins do not), but I assume your machine is a Bernina. Even if your bobbin winder is repaired, this standalone bobbin winder will save wear and tear on your machine--also, makes it so-o-o-o much easier to wind a bobbin without first removing the thread from your machine.

Just received a singer futura II model 920 which seems to sew just right. When I tried to wind a bobbin, I just can't get it done.


If it is a new machine, take it for warranty service. Sounds like perhaps something is misaligned with the release lever. In the meantime, a standalone bobbin winder can be purchased at JoAnn's, Hancocks, or Amazon.com for about $35 (helps reduce wear & tear on your machine).
===============

It's very difficult to say whether it is worth the price of repair. On the other hand, what would you do with a machine that doesn't work? It could be something very simple that can be repaired for a small price, or it could be something expensive. (However, since you indicate it is only the bobbin winder that is faulty, otherwise the machine works with that one exception, you can save up to get the bobbin winder fixed.) FWIW, a standard check, clean & oil could cost around $100 (based on what I currently pay for my machines). However, you could ask what it would cost to fix the bobbin winder only.

From a search on eBay:
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=singer+futura+920

You can track similar machines and their sales prices to determine if it would be worth fixing your machine. Even if you don't, you can still purchase the standalone bobbin winder and continue to use the machine anyway. A working machine is better than none at all.

Machine will not go forward when pressing the foot pedal. Manual says something about checking bobbin winder indent. What is a "Bobbin winder indent."


bobbin winder is the little spindle on top usually right side above the flywheel. you need to move it left away from the stop as this engages the bobbin winder and disengages the needle movement. your manual should show this under Winding a bobbin. these machines dont have a clutch on the flywheel, just moving the bobbin spindle declutches

My elna sewing machine bobbin won't spin on top to wind thread around. The fly wheel spins though...I've been putting thread on the bobbins by hand.


If the fly wheel is going around then the clutch isn't disengaged to wind the bobbin, you need to pull out the flywheel on your model to disengage the clutch for bobbin winding.

Take thread from thread spool across to bobbin winder thread guide, then back to bobbin and thread the tail through the hole on top of the bobbin. Place bobbin onto spindle on top of machine and then push it against the stop to engage the bobbin winding motor. HOld the thread tail up and start winding slowly until the bobbin core has been covered including the starting point. Stop and trim off the thread tail with scissors. COntinue winding bobbin and give the thread a nudge if needed to wind evening top middle and bottom of the bobbin. A good smooth wind is important. Also don't wind at full speed and keep an eye on the thread reel that the thread is coming off, you don't want it bouncing around as this will **** the thread and stretch then relax it affecting your bobbin wind.

Obviously if you know this and the bobbin winding mechanisim is just not working, then it will need a service/replacement by an Elna repair person.

Bobbin winder will not wind


The bobbin winder will not activate to turn the bobbin or the thread will not wind onto the bobbin spool?

Sewing machines vary in the method used for bobbin winding.

You can find threading and bobbin winding guides at sewusa.com.

If the winder is broken, you can get it repaired or check into getting a Sidewinder Bobbin Winder as an auxiliary for winding the bobbins, which would be less expensive than the repair.

Can't put a bobbin on the winder Husqvana Viking 6020


Is this a Designer 1 or a #1? There is no moving lever on the pin of a Deigner 1,they are fixed. If it's a #1, use sewing machine oil or Triflow. NEVER use 3 in 1 oil. It will gum up and cause problems later on.
