SOURCE: Bobbin won't wind

I have checked the gears underneath and see no missing teeth for the bobbin part. The bobbin "seat" does raise, but does not engage. Thanks

SOURCE: Bobbin won't wind Singer 7422

Your problem lies with the main shaft that is to tight to release the bobbin winder mechanism, because of old grease and oil becoming sticky. A short term solution will be to remove the needle, in order not to hurt you, and then hold on to the needle bar with your left hand, while engaging the bobbin lever with your left hand. This will prevent the main shaft to rotate and your winder should work. In the long term, take it to your dealer to clean the oil and grease. You will not be able to open the machine casing yourselve, as you might damage the casing and or electronics.

Good luck!

SOURCE: 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.

Manual singer symphonie 200

You can get a free download of your user's manual at the Singer site under Support. It will show you with pictures how to wind your bobbin.

You can also just purchase an inexpensive bobbin winder, which I think does a better job anyway.

I have a singer contemporary 930 and the bobbin push button will not stay over to wind the bobbin. And when in hold it manually till it clicks the bobbin doesn't wind properly

Sounds like you may have a problem getting the cam to engage. However, you can easily solve the problem by purchasing an inexpensive bobbin winder. It does a better job anyway. You can get one at, for instance, WalMart, or online at Amazon or eBay.

My needle will not pick up bobbin thread on my singer protege model 2639

Try installing a brand new needle.

If it still will not work, most likely the machine has been knocked out of time. Take it for service.

How do I thread the bobbin on a singer ingunitity sewing machine

If you go to the Singer site, they generally have the user's manual that you can download for free. It will tell you how to use the bobbin winder. Every sewing machine has the ability to wind a bobbin, but there are several different systems, according to the machine you purchased. Alternatively, you can purchase an inexpensive bobbin winder for under $25 at WalMart online.

I have a self winding bobbin on my singer model number 4663 and I don't know how to pick up my bobbin thread.

isn't this info in the manual? If you don't have one call singer and purchase one because it's not in the download area. And a search for the model 4663 brings up nothing.
