Question about Brother Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I have trouble with loading my bobbin. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. Last night I was sewing for quite a while and all of a sudden, the machine felt like something dropped and I quit sewing and the bottom thread was all tangled. I had missed around with loading and reloading the bobbin and the upper thread. I looked in trouble shooting in the manual and kept trying to rethread both top and bottom. Could there be something wrong with my machine?

Singer 3820 machine - not used much has suddenly decided that it will not disengage the sewing foot when I try to wind a bobbin?


If your bobbin winder is still working, but the needle is going up and down, I would ignore it--it won't hurt. It engages and disengages by a clutch, and sometimes it slips. I would make sure, though, that whatever controls your buttonhole operation and/or twin needle operation is not slightly engaged. That's different on different machines; sometimes it's a lever you pull down, a button or a dial, or a combination, but just make sure that your machine is set on straight or zigzag sewing, not a special operation.

My Bernina Activa 140 (12 yrs. old,first time to have any trouble with it) has stopped stitching properly. The top thread looks normal but underneaty(the bobbin thread I guess) is just giant loops an


Almost every time this will be due to the machine being not threaded correctly. I've been sewing for 45 years and still mis-thread my machine occasionally. It's also possible that the bobbin thread didn't seat quite right when you put in the bobbin. Or, I've had mine do that if I didn't quite get the presser foot lever down completely. (working with heavy fabrics usually)

If that is not the case here, try replacing your needle with a new one, as it might have developed a small burr, and be certain that it's the correct needle for the fabric. Sometimes it can also be that the needle is in backwards. Also, cleaning it, (the bobbin area), out thoroughly by using a soft brush and some canned air can do wonders for it. Then use a drop or two of sewing machine oil where your manual indicates it to go in that area.

If none of that fixes the problem, let me know and I'll see if there is a problem specific to your machine that can happen.

Happy Sewing! :)

There is probably lint or thread caught in the bobbin area and causing it to overheat. Call Singer at 1-800-4singer and they can advise you,

Singer 7422 beeps and all lights come on when peddle is pressed.


There are several sensors on this machine that just start causing the machine to malfunction for no apparent reason. One is one the bobbin winder, one on the buttonholer, and one under the machine which workd with the feed. It is far from an exact thing. If you can get to them, sometimes loosening them, moving them about then tightening them seems to 'fix' them. Sometimes not. Wish we could be more exact in explaination but sometimes we will move them repeatedly then they start working. It is hit and miss.

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.

I have rewound a bobbin on my sewpro sewing machine. When I loaded the bobbin back in the machine I can't get the machine to pick up the thread to sew again.


Welcome to FixYa. I always try the easiest fixes first - make sure your bobbin is inserted correctly, and that the bobbin thread is securely threaded in the bobbin case (sometimes the bobbin thread doesn't "catch" when you place it in the bobbin case). If all is well in the bobbin area, rethread your machine. Make sure that the presser foot is in the raised position when you thread. If it still isn't sewing correctly, change your needle. These last three steps fix most problems. But, if you are still having problems, look at the thread in the problem bobbin. It should be straight and tight. If it is kind of wobbly and a little loose, you'll need to wind the thread onto a new bobbin.

If are new to sewing, keep your manual close by and refer to it often. Simple mistakes can make a new sewer loose confidence, but it is all part of the process of learning your machine.

Good luck and happy sewing. If you have a sec, please rate my response so I know when I need to work on my responses.

Thanks for stopping in. Ginny

Bobbin winder has no tension


are you sure you have the thread over the right place? it should be from the spool to the small metal wheel on the top of the machine and nothing else, also make sure your using a janome or s-class bobbin ( also it should be a plastic bobbin if it loads from the top of the machine and not the front ) when i fill a bobbin i also start out slow sometimes keeping my finger loosley on the thread itself before it winds on the bobbin to give it more stability.
