Singer 413 bobbin problem

I can't get the bobbin thread to come up through the thread plate. It doesn't even look like its doing anything in there. Isn't the bobbing supposed to be spinning or something? I got this machine second hand. It has been cleaned up and oiled and everything else about it seems fine. Maybe there is some kind of trick about getting the bobbin thread to pop up--it's an old machine-maybe they're different? Thanks for any help/advice you can give.

    I have the same problem. The free diagram is very helpful but I am having trouble with the tension spring. I pull the bobbin thread towards where I think the tension spring is but it ends up breaking the thread. Is there a trick to catching the tension spring?

    This is NOT a solution. If the gears are not spinning down below, its NOT a problem with the way you are threading your bobbin. IGNORE this as a solution.

Big loops under the needle plate. The bobbin case is pulled towards the needle and lifted up in the front.


OK, Nylon thread and vinyl fabric are difficult. Try this:
1. Be sure your machine is *very* clean - no leftovers from previous projects.
2. Take the bobbin receiver out (need a screwdriver to hold the release), clean it and all around it and re-insert. When you re-insert in this machine, hold the release lever with the screwdriver, push the receiver away from you (under the feed dogs) then bring it back toward you so it catches before you release the catch.
3. Use a stitch length just a bit longer than you 'normally' would - 3+ for vinyl.
4. Wind your nylon thread onto a bobbin *very* carefully. It's easy to get it caught so that it won't feed evenly.
5. Be sure your upper thread is in properly, and that it doesn't catch on anything.
6. Adjust your upper tension tighter than 'normal' to accomodate the slippery thread your're using - do this a little at a time, it's easy to miss the 'sweet spot' if you adjust too much.
7. Be sure to bring up your bobbin thread and hold both threads as you start to sew - hold them for 3-4 stitches.
8. Sew slow - this machine can go *really* fast, but don't let it on this project. It will catch better if you take it slow and easy.

Hope all this helps. If not, you'd probably better take it in for service.

How do you thread thre bottom bobbin on a singer 533?


Drop the bobbin in, holding the the of the thread between your left hand fingers, making sure the bobbin will turn clockwise as you pull on the thread, manually turn the wheel to make the needle go down and up again, as it comes up it will bring the bobbin thread up through the plate hole. There you are, close the plate, good sewing

Try inserting the bobbin in the reverse direction. Most machines take a bobbin clockwise or counterclockwise and it can make a difference. Also try a new needle, a bad needle is often the problem believe it or not.

Bobbin case turns in its place


You need to remove the needle plate and take out the bobbin case. Examine it for any rough spots, scratches or burrs. When you find them, you will need to remove them with an emery stick and then buff it with very fine steel wool. Reinstall the bobbin case and the needle plate. Put the bobbin in the machine so that it turns counter clockwise when you pull the thread. Rethread the top of the machine and change the needle. Hold the needle thread , turn the handwheel and see if the bobbin thread is picked up without snagging anyplace. If it's okay, sew away.
