Yes, when you pull the bobbin thread out of the bobbin case, the bobbin should move/circle counter clockwise in the bobbin case. But also sometimes the bobbin may not be the perfect size for the bobbin case, take a good look! Or if your bobbin thread is too full in your bobbin this may cause won't move. In this case, take some of the thread out. Another thing is try to loosening the screw of the bobbin case. This need to be done in extra careful and slow. Since you don't really want to let the screw out of the bobbin case, because its a little bit delicate when it's happen. Hope it will work soon! Good Luck.

The bobbin won't stay in place


Your bobbin is too short. The correct bobbin must be even with the bobbin case. If it is the bobbin case that is moving around then you must adjust the inner rotary hook bracket assy. It must allow the thread to move between the corner (near screw) and the bobbin casing. Rotate the hand wheel towards you to make sure the thread fits between the corner and the casing. Make it as tight as possible without a snag taking place.

I think the plastic on the bobbin case has been chipped off a bit. Can't get it to stay in place. I believe I've got it in right, it just won't stay there. After taking it out and looking at...


I think this is your bobbin case

being plastic they are damagable if the case moves and the needle strikes it. Sometimes you can file out the damage with a nail file. But replacements are available too.

Hope this helps.

New Problem...I have a Singer CG-550. When I try and sew anything, the needle hits something inside where the bobbin is. The little black casing holing the bobbin keeps moving all over the place, I slip...


On the right of the black bobbin case there are two screws, you can slacken those screws off and move the bobbin case nearer to the guard leaving enough room for the thread to pass through, if the needle is hitting the bottom you may need to retime the machine.

Problem inserting bobbin


Inserting bobbin into the bobbin case or problem inserting bobbin case into the shuttle?

Make sure the thread will feed from the bobbin clockwise and through the guide on the bobbin case.

Lift the lever on the bobbin case to hold the bobbin in place as you inset the bobbin case into the shuttle.

If the bobbin case for this machine as a "finger", this has to align with the opening in the shuttle.

If you cannot readily see this - move the bobbin case a bit to the left and right until it clicks into place.

Bobbin thread is pulling to the top, using embroidery needle, bobbin thread and proper thread on the top. As far as I know the machine is set right. This might not be the right place to ask, but am...


Setting bobbin case tension:
Put wound bobbin in bobbin case. Thread it in case. Hold the thread and carefully let go of the case only holding bobbin thread. The case should NOT move. Quickly let your hand drop 2-3 inches to let the bobbin case free fall for 2-3 inches, the bobbin case should move slightly then stop. It moves because it let’s a little thread off the bobbin. It should then stop .5"- 2" of thread should release. If so, your bobbin case tension is right. If it’s right then begin to look at your top thread tension. Always Always start with a properly adjusted bobbin case, then adjust your top tension accordingly.

I have a Singer XL5000 machine, the normal looking bobbin is not spinning with the shaft and wont wind what have I done wrong?


Is your bobbin case holding in place right? See if you can jiggle it back and forth to see if it moves. If it does move, it may have unattached itself in it's inner-casing.

My bobbin case would just go back and forth in the casing. Make sure that your needle plate is inserted right, as it locks the bobbin case in. You may have to unscrew the needle plate, take out the bobbin case, place it back in - pushing it to your left as you glide the needle plate back into place. (go from front to back while inserting). It should catch your bobbin case and lock it into place. Hope this helps. If not I would suggest you take it in for repair. Good luck.

Bobbin case is moving out of place


I was having the same problem with my machine and finally the spring broke. I couldn't find any parts for this so my husband made me a new spring out of a coke can! LOL!! Anyway, he messed with it for a while and it kept doing it. He figured out that it was not the spring but the other piece under the spring was not pushed up far enough to keep the bobbin case in place so he took a screw driver and pushed it forward toward the bobbin case and now my bobbin case does not move!! And the machine is sewing perfect! At least for now. Anyway, it's not the spring or the thread adjusting screw!
