Question about Sewing Machines
I just purchased a used Memory Craft 5500 sewing machine made by New Home. The dealer told me it was made by Janome 10 years ago.
I need help figuring out how to get the bobbin to wind from the spool of thread. I was shown how to place the spool into the top of the machine, and how to thread the spool to the bobbin. When I click the knob which holds the bobbin, ready to be automatically wound from the spool, it only winds in very small increments. I press my foot on the pedal on the floor, and I cannot get the bobbin to wind quickly. The machine seems to think that I am trying to sew instead of wind the bobbin (the sewing mechinism moves up and down). The digital readout, however, is "SP" which I am assuming means "spool." Do you have an idea why the bobbin winds only in small increments instead of continuously? I have no problem getting the machine to sew.....it's just trying to get the bobbin to wind automatically that is the problem.
You also need to pull out the knob in the center of the Wheel It is a great machine.

You ought to have a 3 mth warantee with this used machine, take it back to the dealer and have them fix this problem...in Australia, consumer law provides that the sale of goods requires that they are "fit for their intended purpose".....there is almost certainly a similar provision where you are........get it remedied soon, as a feature that has not worked since you purchased ....perhaps calling first to ensure you are able to meet with the service person to explain.
I would not recommend you open it yourself until the dealer has looked at it.
If they cannot fix it, ask for replacement or money back.

Tips for a great answer:

1. Place the thread spool on the spool pin in
against the spool.
back to front. Pull the thread clockwise around
the inside to the outside.
4. Place an empty bobbin on the bobbin spindle.
5. Push the bobbin lever to the right to wind.
A pop-up appears on the screen to inform
you that bobbin winding is on. Press the
foot control or the start/stop button to start
winding the bobbin.
When the bobbin is full, the bobbin winding
will slow down and stop automatically. The
pop-up closes. Remove the bobbin and cut the thread
