Can`t rewind bobbin

When I try to fill bobbin it will go around about 4 times , then all the lights behind the buttons, which I belive is the program board, come on , and it makes a funny humming sound. It will go a couple more turns and stops altogether. Needle travels up and down, when bobbin is trying to fill. should it move? When I put in a new bobbin I can sew fine, just am unable to fill bobbin. Help !!!!!!!!!!!!

Sounds like it may be a bad solenoid or clutch inside. When it tries to reverse direction to rewind is sounds like it's getting stuck. The lights comming on might be an indication that the machine detects a problem. You could try to open it and see if any of the gears are broken or out of place or if any of the teeth on the gears are missing. But I would get it serviced if you're not comfortable with opening it up.

When rewinding bobbin on the 415, it is stuck & can't get it off the machine


Some how the bobbin got wound too tight. The thread must have been caught along it's path or something. You will have to unwind the thread off the stuck bobbin. Once enough thread is off the bobbin it should pull off. After that, throw that bobbin in the trash, it is now deformed and most likely will not work anymore. If you wind your bobbins with the machine threaded always make sure you have your presser foot up and Always use a metal foot.

I just purchased a Tacsew T111-155 sewing machine with a bobbin rewinder. Since the bobbin rewinder runs off the drive belt, how do you rewind the bobbin without the needle moving? Is there a button or a...


Hi Diane...you 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.

Have a husquvarna viking 200 machine and the bobbin has stuck on the mechanism while I tried to remove it after the bobbin was filled. Have pulled and pulled and it simplyu will not come off. Thanks for...


I'm assuming you are talking about the rewinding mechanism on top. There are grooves in the bobbin which fit on to the rewinding spindle that holds the two together while the bobbin fills. It may be they have gotten out of synch or the bobbin is a non-standard Husqvarna Viking bobbin for that machine. These usually use green bobbins but they have come out with new colors but all have the Husqvarna logo on the bobbin -- an H. I would try to wiggle it slightly to try to remove it. If still will not come off, try popping it off with a flat head screw driver but be sure to put a folded towel under the screwdriver so that you don't damage the molding of the machine. If you still are unable to get it off, recommend taking it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. A list of dealers near you is available at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Good luck.

I need to rewind a new bobbin


My SE-270D bobbin winder is located on the top of the machine to the far right. From the picture of your machine it looks to be in the same place. The larger spindle is for the spool of thread and the shorter spindle is for the bobbin.
You need to wnd the thread around the bobbin a few times just to make sure it is started properly, and then move the bobbin either forward or backward to engage. (It's different on some machines.) You may also have to move the outer edge of the machine wheel (the large wheel on the outside right) to keep the needle from moving up and down while the bobbin is filling. When the bobbin is full the machine should shut off by itself.
Then you will have to re-tighten the machine wheel to engage the needle.
Hope this helps.

Bobbin does not wind all the way up


I have had this problem, easily fixed by twisting the rubber knob that is in contact with the spool to the left.

Thread jams & wheel axel cannot turn


there are a couple of things that come to mind.  
Bobbin:   wound with uneven tension.  Try taking the bobbin, rewind that thread onto another bobbin and wind slowly.  make sure the thread feeds onto the new bobbin evenly.
upper thread:  catching on something or not flowing off the spool easily.
you're doing well, sounds like you consulted the manual and used your noggin, hang in there and let me know if this doesn't help.  we can troubleshoot some more!
