It might not be that they bought the wrong one. It was hard for me to seat mine too. Make sure the little "shark fin" on the black plastic is to the LEFT of the thin metal piece that's attached to the showing machine by a screw. I kept seating mine with the "fin" to the right of the metal piece, and it really messed me up!

Bobbin holdernkeeps jumping put


If the bobbin case is not seated properly and latched into place, it will jump out of position when you begin to sew. Consult your owner's manual to see how to install the bobbin case properly into your machine.

I have a singer fashion maker rotomatic sewing machine..its bobbin case is broken..i have purchased it but don't know how to install it


I believe that is top loading Apollo bobbin case if so, facing the front of the machine underneath bobbin cover/door there should be a bracket on the left (holds bobbin case) move it back, set case in with the cut out pointing to the back of the machine, you may have to wiggle it a bit until you feel it is seated the move the bracket back over the bobbin case

Bobbin case wont stay in place when I sew


Most bobbin cases have a latch that must be released to remove or install in the machine. Be sure to hold the latch open while you insert the bobbin case into the machine. Rotate the bobbin case slightly until it feels seated. Then release the latch. If the bobbin case is not latched in place, it will continue to fall out whenever you begin to sew.

Bobbin case inserting wrong


I suspect the "housing" you refer to is not seated completely. Be sure to wiggle it until it slips into place. Once it is seated, the bobbin case should seat firmly as well.

The motor locked up because the thread is tangled. Remove the tangled thread before continuing the operation.Clean the bobbin case to remove the tangled thread. After cleaning the bobbin case, insert the bobbin case properly. If the needle is bent or broken, replace the needle.Then, thread the upper thread properly, and continue the operation.

have you taken the bobbin case out and cleaned it. Its a simple process if you look directly at where the bobbin goes in you will see two latches one on either side of the bobbin case, release those and clean this area and oil it, reassemble and then reload. bobbin thread could be old or if the bobbin was wound on a different machine the tension could be wrong for this machine. when reassembling bobbin case make sure that all parts are seated corectly, also sometimes the actual case that holds the bobbin may need to be replaced, if its an older machine it could be worn.
