Question about White Sewing 1415 Mechanical Sewing Machine

Can't remember how to load the bobbin

Obviously, none of us are seamstresses in our home. We wound the bobbin but can't remember how to load it. There's the bobbin casing which we loaded the bobbin in, but then there's a metal ring that fell out or dropped out when my daughter took the empty bobbin out, and you would think we could use common sense to fit everything back in. Alas. I've spent the last half hour manipulating the ring and casing to no avail. Any help would be appreciated!
p.s. I'm not positive that this machine is a White 1414, but it looks similar.

If you have the seperate bobbin case that goes into the raceway, that is the bit which should have a black clip either side, make sure the needle is at the top , with the two black clips open the gate can be dropped down or taken off, the half moon shape shuttle should fit in quite easily, put the gate back up and put the clips acrosss to hold it in, take the bobbin case by the latch with thumb and forefinger and pop it in.

Used machine recently but now no matter how carefully i load everything, bobbin pops out and thread tangles

Check that you have put the bobbin in the correct way. check that it is the correct bobbin for that machine and you could also check that the bobbin has been wound properly. If you load your bobbin up with different threads and not let if fill with only one thread you can have problems. Also clean out the bobbin area sometimes a bit of fluff can be caught in the bobbin area. cheers Dot

I can't remember how to wind a new bobbin

there should be a spare thread holder on the machine and a bobbin mount near the drive wheel of the machine. The bobbin goes on the bobbin mount which is pushed onto the drive wheel in order that it is rotated. the thread should be wound onto the bobbin and the the motor should be actuated. This should wind the bobbin. This is usually done with the thread out of the needle.

Why is thread is making multiple loops around bobbin

are you using pre-wound bobbins? or bobbins you've wound yourself? they might be too full or over wound (too much thread) this happens with pre-wound or some you've wound yourself. Also make sure you are loading the bobbin correctly. You also might try another bobbin, as sometimes they can get warped if they are the plastic kind.

White D'Lite Can't load wound bottom into machine. Manual is confusing. Need clear details.

I suggest checking youtube for a video
also make sure the bobbin is not warped or bent or damaged
make sure the bobbin is not over full
if none of this helps, then take the machine to a sewing machine repair shop to be checked, to see if there is something wrong with the hook and hook race.

Won't sew! Loads of top thread bundles up around bobbin casing.

First... make sure you are threading it correctly. It MUST be threaded with the foot up.

Do a test seam. Make sure you put the presser foot DOWN when you sew.

Make sure you grasp and hold the bobbin and top threads as you begin the seam. (this is good practice for any seamstress on any machine.

If you still get loops, tighten top tension.

Also check the bobbin case for burrs. drag a finger nail along edges to feel for it catching. If you find one take a small bit of extra fine sand paper and file it off.

Good luck
