The bobbin thread shows to the front. Does the bobbin or thread tension need adjusted


Generally, tension adjustments are made using the upper thread tension. Most likely the upper tension is set too tight and is pulling the bobbin thread up. Loosen the upper tension and try again. Tension is accurate when the upper thread and bobbin thread meet in the middle of the fabric. Whenever fabric, thread & needle are changed, there may be a need to adjust the upper tension.

HINT: When threading the upper thread, make sure the presser foot is RAISED during threading to make sure the upper tension disks are open and the thread seats properly.

Bobbin tension is only adjusted when the tensions are way out of whack. Only slight turns of the bobbin case tension screw are made in graduated movements and testing occurs after each adjustment.

What to do to fix the bobbin thread from jamming up everytime


There are a couple of reasons that can cause this.
a. Raise the pressure foot. As you load the top thread give small tugs to check for snags. They must be stopped.
b. Once the top threading is done on top lower the pressure foot. Now, give a tug on the thread. Is the tension really hard or just average? You may need to lower the tension to stop the jamming of the bobbin thread.
c. Clean the bobbin area. Check the bobbin tension and adjust as you need to.
d. Put a drop of oil on the race. (Thing the bobbin case sits on)
e. As the bobbin hook (sharp thing) is rotating does the bobbin case move back and forth a lot. You may need to adjust the bar that is next to the bobbin case so it can't rotate. Usually you will need to move it forward.
SEE INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO ADJUST THE BOBBIN. TENSION OF UPPER AND LOWER THREAD MUST BE RIGHT.

How to thread the bobbin on a singer electronic 4562?


Do you need to wind the bobbin? If you just need put in the bobbin, make sure that the needle is in the highest position and that the presser foot is up. Slide open the cover by moving it towards you. Pull about 4" of thread from the bobbin and hold the bobbin such that the thread is coming off in a counter-clockwise direction. Put the bobbin into the bobbin case and secure the thread in the notch near the center bottom of the bobbin case. Next guide the thread into the notch to the left (near 7 on an analog clock). Hold onto the thread and slide the cover closed. To bring up the thread, make sure that the needle is threaded as well. Turn the hand wheel slowly towards you while you hold the needle thread with your left hand. Turn the wheel until the needle comes back out of the needle plate. Pull gently on the needle thread. You should see a loop of thread around the needle thread. Gently untangle this loop until you get to the end of the bobbin thread. Pull the needle thread through the opening on the left side of the presser foot. Then pull both threads to the back of the machine.

Most Singer sewing machines are available here: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual for the 4562 is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/435_5_8_10_16_22_dial.pdf . The details and images for winding the bobbin is on page 13. Inserting the bobbin and raising the bobbin thread is on pages 15-16.

I hope this helps.

The top thread does not pull up the bobbin thread


Is the bobbin thread through the needle eye? If not then it needs to be there. The top thread doesn't pull it.

While threading my bobbin, the thread slipped under the bobbin seat and got stuck. I can't dislodge it, and my bobbin won't thread. How can I fix this?


can't figure out what you mean, what bobbin seat, do you mean on the bobbin case? maybe on the post where the bobbin case goes? I guess you just have to work on getting the thread off and start over.

How to thread bobbin


  • Place a spool of thread securely on the spool pin.
  • Take the thread to a thread guide that is closest to the spool pin but heading for the bobbin and guide the thread into the guide.
  • There will be some sort of a guide that may look like a button or disk, that the thread will go under or between to hold tension on the thread before it goes to the bobbin.
  • If the bobbin has a hole in the side of it, thread the hole so the tail of thread is on the outside of the bobbin and place the bobbin on the final part of the bobbin winding area.

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.
