Re Janome 7330 bobbin winding problem. Thread jumps out of the top guide when bobbin is winding. I've tried everything; different speeds, main spool upright,tightening the screw on the thread guide.


Take a look at this video. There are others too. That is a really unusual way and nothing like the Singers, and Pinnocks that I have used. If you want to see other videos, there are a few. Google 'Janome 7330 bobbin winding', and then click on the Video tab. Let me know how you get on?

How to Wind Bobbin on Janome

The bobbin won't wind, do you know what my problem is?


It is difficult to diagnose without knowing the machine brand and model.

Consult your manual and verify that you are properly following all the steps and threading the machine properly to wind the bobbin.

If you still are unable to wind a bobbin, you can pick up a stand-alone bobbin winder (one brand name is Sidewinder) sometimes available at fabric stores, ie Hancock's, JoAnn's, or Amazon for about $25.

My elna sewing machine bobbin won't spin on top to wind thread around. The fly wheel spins though...I've been putting thread on the bobbins by hand.


If the fly wheel is going around then the clutch isn't disengaged to wind the bobbin, you need to pull out the flywheel on your model to disengage the clutch for bobbin winding.

Take thread from thread spool across to bobbin winder thread guide, then back to bobbin and thread the tail through the hole on top of the bobbin. Place bobbin onto spindle on top of machine and then push it against the stop to engage the bobbin winding motor. HOld the thread tail up and start winding slowly until the bobbin core has been covered including the starting point. Stop and trim off the thread tail with scissors. COntinue winding bobbin and give the thread a nudge if needed to wind evening top middle and bottom of the bobbin. A good smooth wind is important. Also don't wind at full speed and keep an eye on the thread reel that the thread is coming off, you don't want it bouncing around as this will **** the thread and stretch then relax it affecting your bobbin wind.

Obviously if you know this and the bobbin winding mechanisim is just not working, then it will need a service/replacement by an Elna repair person.

Dont know how to use the sewing machine so how do i thread


well!I If you buy a new sewing machine it has a manual to guide you in any brand.But if buy a used one sometime it doesn't have a manual, you didn't mention the type of sewing machine you want to use any how if you have a mechanical sewing machine it's better to start on it.First you must know and must familiarize the significant part of machine and important usage of them,I'll just mention the most usage part at start.Putting thread in bobbins first there is bobbins winder where thread was wind,draw thread from spool through bobbins winder tension disc located at top of machine.wind thread around an empty bobbins serveral times then,place bobins onto bobbins winder shaft with thread wound on bobbins clockwise sometimes this is located at top right side a shaft coupled to circular rubber touching handwheel perpendicular sometime it was located at right side front of machine near handwheel.Release clutch by pulling handwheelor rotating pivot wheel counterclockwise at the center of handwheel whlle holding freeze the handwheel tigh in order to disingage the motion of handwheel from mechanism of machine.

Filling the bobbin with my Juki DDL-5550-6


It's actually designed that way on purpose so you can wind a bobbin while sewing. If you lift the presser foot, at least it'll make less noise in the process.

Bobbin does not fill completely


Machines that stop the bobbin winder automatically when the bobbin is full have a mechanism that detects how much thread is accumulating in the bobbin while it is winding, then stops the winder when the bobbin is full. It is likely that the bobbin winding mechanism needs to be adjusted by a mechanic. 
On the other hand, if the thread winds evenly, and stops winding when the bobbin is about 3/4's full each time, you probably don't need to worry about it if all else is good (even tension, consistent stitch quality, and so on). 
If you'd like me to post some general troubleshooting tips, let me know.
Good luck

Singer 6267 self winding bobbin winds around shaft under


I just figured out why my bobbine was winding on shaft instead of on the bobbin. first of all make sure the bobbin is setting up high enough, top of bobbin needs to be a fraction higher then the bobbin shuttle, next check to make sure there are no burrs on the bobbin, then make sure that the thear is catching in the groove (**** in top) of the bobbin. In order to get mine to wind i had to lett the tread go down and then slip the thread in the groove. also remember to leave the pressure foot up do not put it down. let me know if this helps.

Bobbin Winder won't release


i have a husqvarna rose, i has the same problem when i started using my machine. i was suggested to not wind the bobbin so fast. the reason it gets stuck is because the thread is so tight on the bobbin it actually makes the bobbin a tiny bit smaller, making it hard to get off again. if you dont wind it so fast, it doesn't get so tight.
