Hello, First check the bobbing thread if it is still intact, if it is, then you have to cut off the edge of the **** thread and reinsert it in the case after running it through its needle. Also ensure the upper needle is intact, and the thread is not rough. After checking all of these and the bobbin does not wind, then you have to remove both the upper and lower bobbind case and check for any form of fault. Take care

Hello,

Open the bobbin cover and remove the bobbin from your machine. Examine the bobbin case and make sure there aren't stray threads jammed into any grooves. If you see clumps or strands of thread, remove them with your fingers or with tweezers.

Look over how the bobbin is positioned in the case and whether or not it is inserted correctly. Different machines hold the bobbin in different ways and some machines don't use a bobbin case. Consult your machine's manual for the proper way for its bobbin to be inserted.

Make sure the thread is wound evenly on the bobbin. If your thread has large sections of loose loops sticking out from the rest of the thread, they easily could be causing the problem. Rewind the bobbin, if needed.

Clean the shuttle mechanism and the bobbin case with a small soft brush, such as a make-up brush, and a dust cloth. Remove as much dust and tiny fiber pieces as possible. Resist the urge to blow into the machine to clear away dust, this can send debris farther back into the machine, causing more serious problems.

Oil the movable pieces of the shuttle by putting a few drops of sewing machine oil on a Q-tip and rubbing the Q-tip over the hinge-like turning areas. Do not add too much oil to the machine; one drop goes a long way.

Reload your bobbin into the machine and sew a line along a piece of scrap fabric. Check your thread tension and adjust it as needed following the manufacturer's instructions. The upper thread should never show through the bottom and the bobbin thread should never show through the top.

I hope this helps to solve the problem.

Good luck.

    It's not the bobbin case under the feed dogs, it's the bobbin spinner at the top of the machine to make a bobbin.

How do I fix the bobbin winder on the 155. It has stopped working completely.


Unable to provide advice without the make & model.

However, in the meantime, you can purchase a stand-alone bobbin winder at the local fabric store or online for ~$30. One brand is called "Sidewinder." Be sure to verify that it will work with your machine's bobbins as some bobbins do not fit!!!

FWIW, it is nice to have a separate bobbin winder so you don't have to stop in the middle of your project, remove the thread, wind a new bobbin, and then rethread the machine.

Bobbin winder is engaged and shows up on screen correctly, but sewing mode is still engaged and bobbin winding keeps stopping.


check the drive knob on the end of the machine
it should be loose when winding a bobbin
if it is tight or seized then that will drive the needle

Singer 6235 bobbin thread winds under bobbin


This happens to me when my bobbin isn't pushed down completely onto the bobbin holder. Also, it happens when I overfill the bobbin and the bobbin sensor doesn't stop the bobbin when it is full.

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.

The bobbin thread keeps breaking! It is very loose and then snaps?? I've replaced the needle to make sure it was sharp, I bought the highest grade thread I could find, adjusted the tension... then...


Sounds more like the way the bobbin has been wound, is it loose and uneven or tight and smooth. Is it properly into the tension spring? being loose doesn't sound right, a thread under correct bobbin tension is usually pretty firm.

Is it loaded into the bobbin holder the right way ?

Also check the bobbin itself hasn't been damaged in some way, not worn/bent. It needs to turn smoothly in the bobbin holder so if one edge has been bent a little this will cause problems.

When winding bobbins, you must have tension on the thread so it winds smoothly with consistent tension on the thread. Most machines have a little tension disc on top or the thread goes through the regular tensioner in order to achieve this. But I always wind bobbins at about 3/4 speed and also add a little extra tension by holding my scissors handle on top of the thread spool so it doesnt bounce around. Also start winding with a little tail pulled through a hole on top of the bobbin and wind until this starting end is covered, then stop and snip off the tail. Then continue winding and watch the thread, giving it a nudge so that it fills evenly across the bobbin, not just all in the middle.

Think of it like the garden hose reel; if you wind it really fast the hose all goes into the middle of the reel, then jams up and you can't get the whole hose onto it. Same thing, wind smoothly and evenly across the whole depth of the bobbin so that the thread is smooth and even. Then when the thread feeds off it will be smooth evenly tensioned and should stitch out evenly.

There is some good trouble shooting information on this page too which might help you to work out what is causing this thread breakage.

Bobbin spindle won't spin


Check the bobbin winder rubber, it may be worn or broken and insufficient friction against handwheel to turn.........or a thread jam around spindle is stopping the spin. In this case, carefully unwind, DO NOT cut thread.

Bobbin winder will not turn..


Without knowing what type of machine you have its hard to determine if the problem is mechanical or electronic. If the bobbinwinder has its own motor than its probably electronic and it could be a bad motor or circuitboard. Sounds like this could be it.
The minimum service charge could be about 50.00 but this won't include the more expensive part. You might look up Sidewinder bobbinwinders which is a small separate unit you can purchase in most fabric stores or online for about 20.00 and just wind bobbins separate from the machine.
Good luck.

Unable to wind bobbin on Brother Css-8150 stopped suddenly


Checking to see if in fact that the bobbin shaft is turning. Run it without any bobbin on the bobbin shaft. Make sure that it is push over in the correct position and run it. I checked on mine and it does make the whirring sound and the the shaft does spin. Also check underneath the shaft to see if there is any thread wrapped around it. ( I had problems with that in the past). I hope this helps,
