It depends on the make and model of your machine........then ask a dealer for that make. If you google the manufacturer's website, they all have a Store Locator option to find the nearest to you

I bought my daughter a White sew E-Z so she can have fun on her first sewing machine. However there is no manual and no instructions on how to thread the bobin. the bobin just sits on its flat side to go...


Check the model number of the machine. White sewing machine manuals are available from Singer at http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals . Enter the model number and click Search.

The White Sew E-Z model W338 manual is available here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/705_white-338-x.pdf .

Unlike some machines this one doesn't really need the bobbin threaded. Place the bobbin in the bobbin holder and leave about 5" of thread extended out from the bobbin holder. With the bobbin compartment still open, lower the presser foot and turn the handwheel to move the threaded needle through the stitch cycle. (I find holding the threads helps; normally, you'll feel them pulling under your fingers.) When the needle has returned to the top of the path, lift the presser foot. Then pull both threads around to the front (the bobbin thread should wrap around the top thread). Then move the threads to the back of the presser foot.

If the needle isn't catching the bobbin thread, first try a new needle (bent or dull needles don't always function properly). Next check the bobbin holder for nicks or other damage. There is a small hook on the bobbin holder that should be where the top and bottom threads intertwine. Under rare circumstances, you will find that the bobbin tension of the bobbin holder is misadjusted. This can interfere with the bobbin thread twisting properly. There is a little set screw that allows you can tighten or loosen the bobbin tension as needed. Adjusting the screw is to be avoided when possible and done in small increments (1/8 turn) if needed. It's easy to strip the threads for the set screw and end up needing to replace the bobbin holder.

I hope this helps.

My bobin thread gets tangled and loose


have you checked the tension? In the older machines you could adjust the thread tension by tightening the screw on the side of the bobin case. With alot of the newer machines you have to lift out the bobbin and then lift out the casing to adjust the screw on the underside of the casing.

How do i adjust the tenion on my bobbin thread?


There should be a screw on the bobbin holder. This screw is on the side of the bobbin casing. (Bobbin holder removes to put the bobbin into). Most models have this. Turn the screw clockwise to increase tension. Run a stitch and check the underside of the fabric to see the stitches. If they look loose or sloppy still, turn the screw more, if they look too tight(pulling) then you have gone too tight. Hope that this helps!

The book on my consew 226r-2 says to adjust the screw to tighten or loosen tension on the bobbin, I can't see a screw, where is it?


It is usually a little tiny screw on what holds the bobbin in and where the thread passes through the bobbin. (The holder...not the metal or plastic bobbin spool of thread...it's sometimes called a shuttle to avoid confussion.) When you tighten or loosen the screw on the bobbin holder it puts more or less pressure on that metal hook the bobbin thread passes through.

Problem with the tension when embrod.


lower your top tension down, as it is tighter then your bobbin thread and also tighten your bobbin thread, this is done by the small screw on the bobbin holder, also you can try using the older metal bobbins these are the ones with the small holes around the top and bottom shank, but please make sure that they are the larger size bobbin, and only go very slow at first, try just in sewing mode first or just wind it over by hand.

Bobin casing


Look in the bobbin area to see where the screw fell out. Check your manual. Sometimes they have a good picture of the bobbin area.

Thread is clogging up under fabric and is not catching bobin thread


I have the same problem, I fix it by removing both Shuttle hook and Bobbin Case and tested it to see if the shuttle hook rotated freely within bobbin case. I noticed the screw for the tension spring was too high and was rubbing agaist bobbin case. Just tighten screw on spring and and recheck for rubbing.
