The manual usually shows a pretty good diagram of how it should be, it snaps in place. Call singer at 1-800-4singer. Or go online at singerco.com and download a manual for free,

The bobin thread is not feeding smoothly. The thread on the bottom of the material is bunching up. I have adjusted the tension in every which way that I can but the problem persists.


you might check & see if the thread has come off the thread take up lever
take the bobbin out of the case & then put it back in
also check the needle it could have a burr on it or be bent or blunt

Janome 11000SE - the bobin case keeps spinning and won't stay in place. I am on my 3rd one. I just had it in for a check up and they said nothing was wrong with it. They put in a new bobin case though, and...


Once the bobbin case is damaged you need to replace it or the problem only get worse. If you are on your third case then something is not right. This machine does not have that kind of history of problems with the bobbin case. Typically this kind of problem is caused by the thread not being inserted into the thread take up lever correctly. (this is the lever that moves up and down when you sew and you see it at the top when you thread it) There is a small spring gate that the thread needs to pass thru when you thread it, There could be a problem with the positioning brackets that hold the bobbin case in place so I would explain that you feel three bobbin cases replaced is excessive and you need some help in getting the problem corrected.
I have assumed that the dealer is replacing the cases for you, if you are just buying the case and putting in yourself, then the problem may well be the brackets, Good Luck!

My thread got caught inside where the bobin is so I took out the bobin and the thread was still stuck. I took out the 2 metal pieces that hold the bobin in place and now I can't get them back in. Help?!


Insert the small metal piece into the big piece. Try turning it in a circle one way. It should fall into place. It it doesn't, take the small piece, flip it, and turn again in a circle. It's very easy. Or go to ebay under bobbins so that you can see a picture.

The uper thread dose not catch the bottom thread


If there is a screw on the side of bobbin case try tightening it up.This usually worked on my old machine.

Wont sew thread bunches up


Hi!

I think you are threading the top of the machine incorrectly. Make sure that what I'm saying is correct, use two color threads to sew with- and you will see that it is in fact the top thread that is bunching.

This might be a tension problem. Could be the bobbin is not threaded in the case right. First, check the threading of the bobbin and then check the stitch.

Next, adjust the tension on the bobbin case. There is usually a small screw on the case that can be tightened or loosened. I think you may need to adjust it a bit or adjust the top tension knob, just a small bit at a time. It the top does not change the stitch, then go to the bobbin case and adjust the screw to tighten the stitch a little bit more.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Installing the hook and bobbin assembly.


The plastic bobbin case should sit on top of the raceway, it should slot in quite easily, once the bobbin case is in put the small metal clip at the top over to hold it in place.

Model 8280. The thread on the bottom keeps bunching up. It is a horrible mass of thread. Then, it stops moving. Can you help me?


I had the same problem and I tried everything including removing the bobin case, cleaning out lint, changing the needle, adjusting the tension but it did not work. Then I finally tried reloading the bobin thread, making sure to load the bobin according the manual directions....and the problem was solved...no more tangles... just a nice even stitch...yeah!

Thread bunches from the bottom while sewing.


Hello, sewing is a part of my income and I've encountered this problem before and managed to fix it on my own, by trying out these different things. I re-threaded the machine and checked to make sure that the tension is not too loose. Check the bobin and the sack the bobin fits into, sometimes it comes loose too, click it back into place and re-do the bobin. adjust the tightness of the stiitches, I usually put it on 2 .5 - 3. Hope this helps. Good luck to all. Nefishakh@hotmail.com

I have model 8280 and the bobbin thread keeps bunching up on the bottom. I have tried to rethread it but it keeps happening.


i think your putting in your bobin backwards,
to check put your bobin in and hold bobin , and bobin case by thread if it unrolls its backwards,
hope this helps!!
