The bobbin thread will not feed up to the sewing deck


Get a q-tip and clean out all of the lint from the bobbin area. Then make sure the bobbin case is in properly. Make sure you're using the correct bobbin size. Then thread the bobbin again & see if it's working properly

Unable to replace bobbin case back into machine


Here's how I do it. I hold the thread with my left hand, just like the thread wikk be pulled up. With the right hand pull the metal tab toward me, hold it open while pushing bobbin in and twisting. When bobbin stops turning and feels seated, then release the metal tab to lock. good luck!

Bobbin


IMPORTANT: Always use a metal bobbin, or the magnetized bobbin case will not be able to function properly, resulting in a lack of tension on the bobbin thread.
9a8cb19.jpg Step 1:
Turn the handwheel counter-clockwise until the needle is in its highest position. Raise the presser foot lifter. Pull the slide plate forward and remove the empty bobbin.
Step 2:
Place the filled bobbin into the bobbin case, and pull about 4" of thread from the new bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin turns clockwise when the thread is pulled, or you will not have correct tension when you begin to sew.
Step 3:
Hold the needle thread loosely with your left hand. Turn the handwheel toward you, first lowering the needle, and continuing to turn the handwheel until the needle comes to its highest position.
Step 4:
Lightly pull up the needle thread and pick up the bobbin thread which will appear through the needle plate slot. Then pull both threads to the back of the machine leaving a 4" thread tail. Push slide plate back in.

Hope this helps. -samson39

Singer 3820 Bobbin Issues? I can't sew!


Unthread the machine completely, remove the bobbin.

Make sure that the bobbin case is securely in its place.

Turn the handwheel and ensure that the bobbin case is not jamming.

Turn the handwheel until the take-up lever is in the highest position.

Raise the presser foot and rethread the machine.

Chaeck the upper tension setting and set it around 5.

ALways make sure that you start sewing, stop sewing and thread the machine with the TAKE-UP LEVER IN THE HIGHEST POSITION.

Good luck!

Bobbin case and threading singer 6423


This machine has a black plastic bobbin case. You drop the bobbin down into the case with the thread coming off in a clockwise direction. If you look close you will see a slot in the bobbin case where there is the metal pieces. The thread will slide into that and as you pull on it it will work its way through and come out on the other end of the metal. Lay the thread over top of the bobbin case and turn the handwheel to pick up the thread. (make sure you close the slide plate)

Singer 2250 bobbin jam


I had same problem. After making sure the thread was loaded properly still same thing happened. Then I reloaded the bobbin and made sure the long metal bar on the metal casing fit securely into the half circle slot at the top of the big metal ring that bobbin goes into. After that, just rotated handwheel a couple of times until thread came through. Problem solved.

Singer 3820 How I replace the bobbin case, it's loose and I can't sew!


remove the 2 screws in the needle plate. Lift off the plate.Take out the bobbin case and examine it for rough spots or nicks. If there are any it will be necessary to buff them with an emery stick or fine sandpaper. Once the rough spot has has been smoothed, buff it with some very fine steel wool. There must be no rough spots on this bobbin case.Clean all the lint from inside the hook area. Do not pull the wick from the center of the hook. Place the bobbin case in the hook area so that it sits flush and does not bind when the handwheel is turned.Reinstall the needle plate, thread the machine, insert the bobbin and turn the wheel to pick up the bobbin thread and see that it doesn't bind.Test sew

A horrible tangle


This is a bit late, could the bobbin case not be seated properly? You need to put it into place and then turn it clockwise until it seats soundly in the opening. Also, check for burrs...the needle may have left a rough mark on the plastic or metal in the bobbin area. A piece of batting, or even an old knee hi should snag on any rough areas.
