    I have the same problem as Tracy475. I haven't replaced the bobin case, and I am sure the bobins are the correct ones.

    Can be fixed in 2 minutes by repair person at a sewing shop. The problem is under the bobbin case that lifts the case so the bobbin will thread.

I was having the same problem. try putting in a new slide plate - the pressure from it holds the bobbin down, but it wears thin after a while. fixed mine.

Are you certain you are using a singer bobbin to suit this machine ?

If you have gathered a collection of bobbins over the years and have just grabbed "any old one" it may have different depth and diameter.

If this is the old 9217 that has a self winding bobbin, it is even more important to get it right.

It is almost always necessary to match the bobbin to the machine to avoid problems.

Also ensure that the bobbin is sitting comfortably, not at any angle, and that the hook race surrounding it is clean and free of lint deposits.

Singer UK has a few diagrams & info that may be helpful ....here

Singer 9217 thread winds under bobbin instead of on bobbin


Make sure the bobbin is seated all the way on the winding pin. There may be an adjustment for it--a technician can probably fix it for you. However, you can also try lifting the thread with a pencil tip just before it winds onto the bobbin. Some of my machines wind the thread unevenly (more on the bottom than the top of the bobbin) and I balance it out by lifting it when winding.

How to thread a bobbin


Which Singer machine do you have? I know how to wind and insert a full bobbin for some models.

Some wind the bobbin with it in the case. This is the case with my Touch & Sew. Inserting a full bobbin is simple. Open the slide plate and drop in the bobbin with the rings up. Make sure that to hold the bobbin thread so that it comes off at the left. Then close the slide plate and make sure that the end of the bobbin thread is coming through the notch. Hold onto the threads and turn the handwheel until the top and bottom thread come back up with a twist. To wind a bobbin for this machine, open the slide plate (some models have a little mark to line up the slide plate). Put in the empty bobbin and thread the top normally. Set the machine to straight stitch and push the bobbin wind button in. (This has a bulls-eye symbol on it.) Wrap the end of the top thread around the presser foot screw several times and hold onto the end. Step on the foot control to start winding. Keep winding until the bobbin is full. The thread wound onto the screw should break. Pull some extra thread and cut it to separate the top and bottom threads. Close the slide plate and set your desired stitch.

Other models are wound at the top of the machine. For some of with a drop-in bobbin, you need to bring the thread down to a catch and then off to the left to another catch. Some have a vertical bobbin. I don't remember if they all have a removable case. Those that do need the thread to come through a notch on the case that pulls the thread under a spring that keeps the bobbin tension. However you should check your manual. If you do not have a manual, check if one is available online. (http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals has many of the Singer manuals for sale or download.)

If you post a comment with the model of your machine, I'll give you a description of threading the bobbin or winding one.

Singer Sewing Machine model 9224. Bobbin thread


If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.

Let me know.

Singer Concerto 9217 - problem threading bobbin


thread the same way as for sewing. put empty bobbin case in bottom. close slide plate only to red button, not all the way. wrap thread from needle around bolt that holds on the presser foot (or just hold it tight). press pedal to sew. bobbin should wind. when done, shut slide plate all the way and sew.

if this doesn't work, try using a pin to push down the center of the bobbin when the slide plate is in winding position - the little catch on the bottom of the plate breaks easily and then the bobbin won't wind without a little help.

Singer Concerto sewing machine model 9217 - bobbin thread problem


This problem is common in sewing machines with plastic bobbin cases. The new case you've ordered will most likely solve your problems. I might suggest checking the point of the rotating hook, to be sure it is burr free.
