Could be a bent needle, try a new one after you have cleaned out the bobbin area with a brush. Then totally rethread. You can call customer service at 1-800-4singer and they can advise you further. Hopefully, it is nothing serious. Good luck.

I have a singer 7466 and the bobbin won't load error code 88. please help!


An 88 error code is a generic one. It could mean that the needle isn't moving properly when the machine is turned on, there could be a problem at the bobbin or the computer for the machine is compromised. When did the error occur (regular sewing or bobbin winding)?

First, make sure that the needle is at the highest point with the hand wheel. Turn the machine off and then back on. Does the needle move to the side and back to the center? If so, then the problem is elsewhere. If the needle didn't move, I'd still recommend that you clean the area under the bobbin case.

If you were winding a bobbin, try a different bobbin. Check for any burs that might block smooth rotation of the bobbin. If you were doing regular sewing, also try a new bobbin. Check the bobbin case and hook areas for lint and clean them out.

If the error still persists, the machine needs to be serviced.

I hope this helps.

Bobbin Problem


There should be a troubleshooting section in the manual that will direct you to what you need to do.

If you need a manual, go to the Singer Company website to download.

I have a 7466 Singer sewing machine. No matter how I adjust the thread tension, the top thread always pulls the bobbin thread through to the top. I am doing thread painting. The feed dogs are lowered and...


Make sure to thread the machine with the presser foot up to insure the thread is seated into the tension control.

Always free-motion with the presser foot down.

Try a lower setting on the tension.

Can't seem to wind a bobbin on Singer 7466 .


HI, THERE ARE SEVERAL THINGS TO LOOK FOR WHEN YOU ARE WINDING A BOBBIN. FIRST CHECK YOUR THREAD, IS IT ON THE MACHINE GOING IN THE CORRECT DIRECTION. SECOND CHECK TO SEE IF YOU ARE THREADING THE THREAD THRU THE BOBBIN AREA ON TOP OF THE MACHINE CORRECTLY. I AM NOT FAMILIAR WITH YOUR MACHINE, BUT MOST HOME MACHINES HAVE THE BOBBIN THREADER ON TOP...THIS IS WHERE PART OF THE TENSION NEEDED COMES FROM TO WIND THE BOBBIN. NEXT, DOES YOUR MACHINE REQUIRE YOU TO LOOSEN THE TENSION ON THE WHEEL, OR DOES YOUR MACHINE HAVE YOU MOVING THE BOBBIN POST BEFORE IT WORKS. LASTLY, CHECK HOW YOU ARE ADDING YOUR THREAD TO THE BOBBIN AND PLACING IT ONTO THE BOBBIN HOLDER, IF IT IS NOT CORRECT IT WILL JUST SPIN OFF THE THREAD. I USUALLY LET THE THREAD GLIDE THRU MY FINGERS AT FIRST TO MAKE SURE I HAVE THE CORRECT TENSION. SOME MACHINES HAVE A TENSION SCREW THAT YOU CAN ADJUST THE THREAD TENSION. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A MANUAL FOR YOUR MACHINE, GO TO SINGER AND MOST LIKELY THEY WILL HAVE ONE THAT YOU CAN PURCHASE. I HAD TO BUY ONE ONCE AND IT WAS ABOUT $15.00, MAYBE THERE IS A SITE YOU CAN GET ONE FOR FREE I DON'T REALLY KNOW. HOPE THIS HELPS. JUST A SLIGHT THING NOT CORRECT AND YOUR MACHINE WILL NOT OPERATE CORRECTLY, SO IT MAYBE JUST YOU HAVE SOMETHING BACKWARDS OR YOU NEED TO LOOSEN THE FLYWHEEL OR MOVE THE BOBBIN PEG.
