Question about Sewing Machines

Open Question

Rewinding bobbin trying to find a way to get a owners manual for a signature sewing machine that is very old, and I can't find any information to tell me what model it is or how old it is. It has a compartment on the top that lifts for a cam and to rewind the bobbin. It has a button on the bottom for sewing and one for embordery. It also has a spot on top for button holes. can you help me find me some information on this machine. I think the belt (on the outside and is yellow with ribs.) is causing a problem with rewinding the bobbin. The bobbin starts to rewind and it just stops like it has lost the tension on the rewinder. Thank you for your help in this matter. My e-mail address is

SOURCE: Thread is bunching underneath fabric

Needle in correct? Be sure your bobbin is not in upside down and turning the wrong way. Possibly the hook that the bobbicase fits in/on has been hit by a needle and caused a burr that is catching the thread as it comes around. The burr would have to be polished off or hook replaced. The machine could be slightly out of time also.

Hi can wind bobbins while you are sewing your product, or you can wind them seperately. To wind them seperately, pull out the bobbin case, lift the presser feet up and lock them in the up position, undo the threading beyond the tension assembly. The takeup will create a birdsnest if you don;t pull the thread from it. Wind your bobbins, the re-thread your machine, insert your bobbin case, drop the presser feet, pick up the bobbin thread and sew away. If you need any other input, call me at 888-283-9640.

SOURCE: I am having trouble getting my singer 6199 sewing machine to sew. The top thread will not pick up bot thread. I tried changing needle, changing bobbin, rewinding bobbin, rethreading machine & bobb

did you get the needle in correctly--all the way up into the needle holder
& the flat side of the needle goes to the back of the machine

also after you check the needle & it's in correctly it's very possible that the machine is out of time & a sewing machine repair technican would have to retime the machine

Why can't I get the rewind bobbin to work?

Consult the owner's manual and verify that you are threading the bobbin winder properly and following all the steps to wind a bobbin.

If you are unable to get it to work, you can purchase a stand-alone bobbin winder at the local fabric store (JoAnns or Hancocks) or from for ~$25.

How do I refill the thread bobbin on a Kenmore sewing maching,,model 148-19371

You can try a couple of YouTube videos:

Loading thread on the bobbin old Kenmore sewing machine
(do not wind the bobbin as fast as he does as it tends to stretch the thread and also could cause the spool to fly off the machine!)

Bobbin rewinder won't work

it's possible that there is a part inside the machine that could be broken, it would be a good idea to have the machine checked.
