Winding the bobbin - Simplicity Denim Start SW210

I just bought this machine, but have not been able to wind a bobbin. I am following closely the instructions, but wonder if I am doing something improperly... When I press the pedal, I hear the motor running, but the shaft is not turning. Any advise as to what to check? (Stitching works perfectly).

You have to move the lever so as to engage it to the wheel. Don't thread the thread all the way to the needle. only lead it around the top position. Disengage the small wheel on the right so that the needle doesn't go up and down.

The bobbin presser on my Juki 2000 Qi sewing machine is loose, it spins around and will not let me wind a bobbin. What can I do to fix this?

Be sure you are following the instructions completely. However, it sounds like there could have been a problem with the bobbin winding unit since you purchased it. You can probably take it for service--may be covered under warranty if it was just recently purchased.

However, there is also a standalone bobbin winder (Sidewinder) avlb from JoAnn's, Amazon, etc. for $30. They are usually battery and AC compatible. You can wind multiple bobbins quickly without having to unthread your machine and it saves wear n tear on your machine. Verify that your bobbins will work on the bobbin winder--some bobbins (mostly Singer) will not.

I HAVE A KENMORE SEWING MACHINE 1641. I can't get the bobbin to wind. I have the manual and have followed all the instructions. Any suggestions?

When you push the empty bobbin over to engage the winding mechanism, do you hear it click into place, or maybe feel it click into place ? I am wondering if perhaps it's not quite engaged and that's why it won't wind. How old is the machine ?

How do I get the plate to close all the way after winding bobbin on the Singer 6235

When you wind your bobbin the center metal tip in the bobbin causes the bobbin to raise or lower. If you press on the center tip, you'll see that it is actually a spring that goes up and down. It sounds to me like that metal tip is stuck down in the bobbin winding position, which is not allowing the bobbin to settle down all the way! You might also check to make sure that your needle is at the highest point, and you have selected #2--the straight stitch. I learned all this from the instruction manual on page 14; it is available as a free download from the singer sewing machine site, and if you don't have one I would recommend that you get it--it's most helpful.

We have 2 singer 7442 machines and they will no longer wind the bobbin. Up to this point we followed the instructions the manual gave on how to thread and wind the bobbin. How do we fix?

If you have followed the instructions and the winders do not work, the machines will need to be repaired, or you could purchase a Sidewinder Bobbin Winder and forgo the expense of having the machines repaired.

I just bought a white sew ez and am unable to wind the bobbin following the instruction manual. The instructions say to pull the thread down through the clamper (what's a clamper; it's not shown in the...

If you look on the top of the machine, there should be a little round metal disk near the far left side. That's the clamper it's talking about, also known as the bobbin winder tension. As for the hole in the bobbin, you can use any of the holes. I'm assuming you're using a metal class 15 bobbin, the plastic class 15 bobbins only have 1 small hole on each end. Both will work with your machine.

Singer touch n sew 750 winding bobbins

You can find Singer bobbin winding instructions at
"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.
