Why does my 717 make a thumping sound in the bobbin case?

Most likely the bobbin is not inserted into the case correctly. If you have your manual there will be pictures of this mine is on page 19. Check to make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly including that the thread is coming out in the right direction to be fed into the slot on the case correctly.

Just got the sewing machine last night - read the manual, etc - the tension of the bobbin is way off. tried every solution mentioned, but its still not working

are you adjusting the little screw on the tension spring on the bobbin case by minute amounts each time? Only turn it a quarter turn each time you change it.

If you do the dangle test, (suspend the bobbin by the thread tail) the bobbin case and bobbin should stay still in the air, but a gentle tug on the case should release thread. Adjust the little screw with the mini screwdriver in your kit until you get it to this point. turn it left to loosen and right to tighten.

Also check that the bobbin is in the bobbin case the right way, page 12 of your manual should show this. Yout want the bobbin to turn anticlockwise when you pull the thread tail. Then load it into the shuttle using the latch on the bobbin case to secure it.

It is possible that the tension spring itself is faulty in which case you can buy a new bobbin case for the machine from the local machine shop, or

Threading and putting the bobbin back in the machine

Most machines have a bobbin case, that removes to place the bobbin inside and then the case goes back into the machiens. However some bobbins just load the bobbin flat from the top. The best place to start is with your machine's manual. If you don't have the machine manual, contact your machine's manufacturer or google "sewing machine manuals" as there are several vendors who sell replacement manuals. One of them is and they have free threading diagrams on the site,maybe that would help you get started.
