The bobbin case turns when i sew

The bobbin case turns when i start the machine, this is the second bobbin case i have gotten for this machine, what i see is that the top thread goes around it gets caught as it goes around the bobbin case. there is a little notch on the side of the bobbin that holds it into place but the thread can get caught on that little spring sometimes.
i don't know what to do about it
any one have any suggestions sure would be helpful

This little "notch" is a stopper and there needs to be a little play so the bobbin case can move approx 2-3mm and allow the thread to pass through. Adjust the spring stopper on the main body just a very little to give it some play and try again....if this was adjusted at dervice, it is not good !

Hand wheel doesn't turning, the bobbin case is blocked


You have what is called a thread lock. Turning hand wheel backwards and may release it if not remove bobbin case from shuttle, release shuttle arms, pull off race cover and remove thread then re assemble, problem should be solved. You may refer to you instruction book as it will explain the procedure.

Singer sewing machine needs a bobbin


Which machine do you have? Many Singer parts are still available, even for older machines. (I have a Touch & Sew 620 from the late 60s and can get parts for it from http://www.sewingpartsonline.com and other sites.)

What is your specific problem with the bobbin case? Is it the timing problem or damage to the bobbin case/hook mechanism? The parts list for most Singer machines can be gotten here: http://www.singerco.com/support/replacement-parts-chart .

Please add a comment with more details of your problem and the model of your machine.

The thread hangs up inside the bobbin holder


A jammed machine is caused by thread being caught in the hook. Remove the upper thread and the bobbin case, turn the hand wheel towards you (counterclockwise) by hand and remove any thread in the bobbin case area. *Always turn the hand wheel towards you. Turning the hand wheel away from you (clockwise) can cause the machines timing to become unaligned and jam your machine. Also, always make sure the presser foot is in the down position before you start sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will jam your machine in the bobbin case.

How do you load the bobbin properly?


Hi there,

Well you may please follow the steps below -
1. Remove the bobbin from the sewing machine. Note: whether you have a drop-in, front or side-loading bobbin on your sewing machine. A drop in bobbin will load from the top, may be via a removable bobbin case cover near the machine-fed dogs. A side or front loading bobbin needs to be loaded into a removable bobbin case under the machine.
2. Choose the right size bobbin for the sewing machine.
3. Wind thread onto your bobbin. Your sewing machine should have a standard thread spool to hold the thread and a short, squat post wide enough for a bobbin.
4. Put the thread and empty bobbin into position on your sewing machine. Wrap the thread around the bobbin to start it. On most machines, disengage the needle by turning the smaller hand-wheel on the machine toward you. Push the bobbin post into position, securing the bobbin into place. Press gently down. Thread should begin to wind neatly onto your bobbin.
5. Break the thread, push the bobbin post back into an inactive position and remove the bobbin. Tighten the hand-wheel. Thread your sewing machine again if necessary before loading the bobbin.
6. Remove the bobbin case cover and put the bobbin into position. The thread should slide through a catch on the bobbin case and up through the cover.
7. Access the bobbin case for a front or side mount bobbin. Lift the catch and remove the removable bobbin holder. Put the bobbin into the holder and run the thread through the holder, bringing it to the front. Lift the catch and slide the bobbin holder back into the case. Hold your needle thread gently forward with your left hand and turn the hand-wheel. The needle thread will pass down into the machine and catch a loop of the bobbin thread. Pull this loop up and slide both threads to the back before beginning to sew.
Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Top thread gets caught on crescent piece holding in bobbin case


If you have the manual take a better look at how to put the bobbin in the case,

sounds like you are putting it in wrong,

make sure you put the bobbin in with the thread com-ming off the bobbin in the right direction (left or right) if not put in the right way you will get what you are saying

ALSO: bring up the bobbin thread your self by turning the hand wheal and bring the thread a few inches to the back of the needle and hold when starting to sew the first 2-5 stitches.

when you do not hold the thread the machine will pull the thread in the bobbin area and cause problems.

you will get use to holding and it will get easier.

hope this helps

Singer 3820 Bobbin Issues? I can't sew!


Unthread the machine completely, remove the bobbin.

Make sure that the bobbin case is securely in its place.

Turn the handwheel and ensure that the bobbin case is not jamming.

Turn the handwheel until the take-up lever is in the highest position.

Raise the presser foot and rethread the machine.

Chaeck the upper tension setting and set it around 5.

ALways make sure that you start sewing, stop sewing and thread the machine with the TAKE-UP LEVER IN THE HIGHEST POSITION.

Good luck!

Bobbin case is moving out of place


I was having the same problem with my machine and finally the spring broke. I couldn't find any parts for this so my husband made me a new spring out of a coke can! LOL!! Anyway, he messed with it for a while and it kept doing it. He figured out that it was not the spring but the other piece under the spring was not pushed up far enough to keep the bobbin case in place so he took a screw driver and pushed it forward toward the bobbin case and now my bobbin case does not move!! And the machine is sewing perfect! At least for now. Anyway, it's not the spring or the thread adjusting screw!
