SOURCE: Putting back the pieces of bobbin case on Kenmore Mini Handi

This is for front loading bobbin..........

The Shuttle hook will look very much like this, and marries this to the "half moon" of the fixed shuttle.

The retaining collar ring that holds it all together has a plate like protrusion (like bull horns), this faces to the top and to the back.......there should be a small lug (or two) with corresponding small hole or slot on the fixed housing (hook race) that locates the ring tightly in the correct position.

There should be 2 swivel arms (black plastic at 4 o'clock & 8 o'clock)) that move to hold the whole thing together by clipping onto a small lug on each side of the ring.

If you tip the machine 30 degrees on its back while you do all this, it makes the process easier, as things are less likely to fall out.........support the back with a soft object for convenience (tissue box, pillow etc)

The bobbin case goes in after the housing is assembled, if you try to do it first, it will prove more difficult.

If this is not quite accurate for your model a photo of the bits would be helpful

SOURCE: while sewing the bobbin case moves, wheel locks up, needle locks

Im not sure if this will help but thought I would pass it along. My Pfaff 6122 tells me to check bobbin for thread unrolling clockwise before you place it back in the machine. I had mine turned to un roll counter clockwise, this is wrong, the bobbin will fall out when you pull on the thread while you are holding it in your hand. You may just keep putting it in backwards. Hope this works for you. J.R.

Sounds like you need to put a drop of clear sewing machine oil in the raceway of the hook. Then sew on some scrap material to soak up the excess oil.

Found your problem while I was trying to solve mine. I can solve yours. Here is the page from my manual about how to remove/replace bobbin housing. I hope you can make this image larger so you can see it clearly. We're limited as to the size of the file we can upload.

SOURCE: Installing the hook and bobbin assembly.

The plastic bobbin case should sit on top of the raceway, it should slot in quite easily, once the bobbin case is in put the small metal clip at the top over to hold it in place.

The area behind the bobbin is in pieces, how do I put it back together. I have a kenmore.


do you have the book? it should show you how. if not take the pieces out that are loose and lay on a flat surface, now put together as if it is a puzzle, it will only fit one way. look to see if anything looks like it broke off rather than fell off. if nothing looks broken lift your machine up and lay on side so bobbin hole is facing up and see if you can lay the parts in as you put them on the table, if they don't snap into place look as see if maybe a small screw might have fallen out. hope this helps good luck.

MY BOBBIN CASE HAS FALLEN APART AND I'M NOT SURE HOW TO PUT THE PIECES BACK TOGETHER.


Sounds like you are describing the hook. Perhaps the owner's manual would be assistance. We don't know the make/model of your machine so are really unable to help. There are some videos on YouTube that show how to install a shuttle and bobbin case, but machines differ.

How does the bottom bobbin tension spring g back in?


the long bit faces the slot by which you pull the bobbin thread
the other end will have a small lip that will fit in the bobbin case near the screw hole
with the screw , it requires only a small turn to make large tension changes on the thread so it is not done up tight
the spring virtually just sits on the bobbin carrier case

Machine just locked up, no obvious thread/needle issues, can't find answers in book...safety function on, Help! Someone said take bottom off and look for thread? Only used it a few times, but out of...


Can you turn the hand wheel at all ? If not, something is jammed tight somewhere.

Have you removed the bobbin from the bobbin case and cleaned thoroughly around it, removing all lint, dust, loose thread bits ?

If that does not help, can you try taking apart the shuttle assembly, which the bobbin fits into ?

Sometimes you may get thread wound around in these parts and it causes a jam. Please, observe how the parts of the shuttle assembly fit together so you know how to put it back together. There may be a small lever or pair of levers that must be moved to allow the parts to be pulled out. There aren't many, usually two or three pieces.

It's very useful to snap pics.. of it the way it looks before you touch it, and then each step as you take it apart, so you have a guide to putting it back.

It's also possible a gear is jammed. Most machines allow you to remove the upper casing and bottom casing. You'd have to take out some screws to do this. If anything is jammed between gears that you can see, remove it carefully. If you have to use a tool to pull out something jammed, take care not to damage the gear teeth, as that's a big repair job and often not worth the expense compared to buying another machine, sadly.

Bobbin housing has come out, I cannot get it back together


Hi This machine uses the standard class 15 bobbin. It sits inside a bobbin case that has a finger that needs to be located in a retaining slot. It the whole lot, bobbin, case, hook assembly and retainer have come out simply turn the machine over so that these parts can be fitted downwards. fit the hook, then the retainer and lock it into position. Put bobbin into case pull thread under spring. Lift tab on case and put it over the hook's central pin and release tab. It should now be locked in position

How to replace the tension spring in a bobbin case?


There are two springs on the bobbin case of a rotary hook machine like the 180 and I suspect you're talking about the thread tension spring on the outside of the case - this is held on and the tension adjusted by a two very small screws. The other spring is the brake spring which is a complicated shape spring that sits in the bottom of the case and puts a slight amount of pressure on the bobbin itself. Assuming the thread tension spring has been recovered along with its two screws, it should be fairly self-evident how it fits back onto the bobbin case - the spring lays across the **** in the bobbin case, through which the thread is pulled, so that the tip of the spring with a small right-angle bend just sits down into the aperture where the thread comes out. Now, importantly, the two screws are different sizes ... the one with the smallest head holds the spring onto the bobbin case and is screwed-down firmly through the hole in the flat end of the spring. The larger screw adjusts the thread tesnsion and is screwed through the hole with the slight conical sides. Now the tension should be adjusted to 5g using a proper gauge, but failing that, insert a bobbin loaded with a thread such as Metrosene and thread the bobbin case up. hold the end of the thread so that the bobbin case hangs on the thread - it should not move/unreel itself. If it does, adjust the tension screw (the bigger one) a little bit at a time until it doesn't unwind. The approximately correct tension is obtained when the bobbin will only unreel when you **** the thread upwards gently. You can fine adjust the tension to get the correct balance by ensuring the top tension is set to normal (red line) and adjusting the bobbin tension until the stitch lays properly in the fabric - use different colours top and bottom to check this. Be aware that the bobbin thread tension varies quite alot with only a small rotation of the adjusting screw, so take it is small steps.
Hope this helps.

most likely the bobbin case is not aligned correctly .Insert the bobbin case so that the projection on the boobin case aligns with the spring.

Bobbin compartment trouble


Put the needle in the up position. Tilt the machine back with one hand and lay the hook in its position on what is called the hookrace. The little ledge inside the the circle opposite the other part that moves. Then take the outer ring and lay that in over top of it. There is a small pin on the bottom that fits into a notch. The two small nubs should be on the outside, then click the two black knobs over those. Put the bobbin in the case and the thread through the notch up under the tension spring on the case. Looking at the back of the case, pull the thread and in most machines the bobbin should turn clock-wise. Now snap it onto the post.
Your good to go.
Good luck.
