Threading the bobbin - winding thread onto the bobbin.

Position the new empty bobbin onto the vertical bobbin rod next to the end wheel. Click the rod to the right to engage drive. Hold the outer end wheel with left hand, and rotate the inner wheel anticlockwise by about a 1/2 turn (it stops) this removes drive from the foot and needle mechanism.

From a spool of thread on the top, thread to a loop/post on the left on the top. Then back to the bobbin you want to wind. Thread through a hole from the inside-out. Hold the thread vertically above the bobbin while you depress the footswitch to start winding. Let go when it's turned a few times.

Move bobbin shaft left, and tighten end wheel after winding enough.

Fitting bobbin-

Move footplate towards you, insert bobbin in hole so that bobbin rotates anticlockwise when thread is pulled, then pull thread into the fine notch towards you. After this position thread away from you, and slide the footplate closed.

To start / load thread. Hold the end 3" of the thread through the needle behind the sewing foot. hand crank towards you to sew first stitch in air. This should retrieve the lower thread - which you can catch with a handy pair of scissors. Then pull both threads rearwards - ready to sew.

How to thread tension on my L47 singer sewing machine


Threading and tension are two different things.

You can search for a manual:
Make Model manual
or
Make Model threading
(most machines thread similarly so even if you don't find your specific model, the instructions would be helpful)

https://www.manualslib.com/products/Singer-L47-4062252.html


When threading, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot so the thread will seat completely in the tension disk.

For tension, generally start with the tension set at the midway point. Tension is correct when the top and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric. If the bobbin thread is showing on the fabric top, loosen the top tension. If the top thread is showing on the underside of the fabric, tighten the top tension. Do not adjust the bobbin tension until it has been determined that the top tension does not make the adjustments needed. (Bobbin tension is sensitive--a little change makes a big affect so you will need to know how to reverse any changes you make.)

How to thread a bobbin


Which Singer machine do you have? I know how to wind and insert a full bobbin for some models.

Some wind the bobbin with it in the case. This is the case with my Touch & Sew. Inserting a full bobbin is simple. Open the slide plate and drop in the bobbin with the rings up. Make sure that to hold the bobbin thread so that it comes off at the left. Then close the slide plate and make sure that the end of the bobbin thread is coming through the notch. Hold onto the threads and turn the handwheel until the top and bottom thread come back up with a twist. To wind a bobbin for this machine, open the slide plate (some models have a little mark to line up the slide plate). Put in the empty bobbin and thread the top normally. Set the machine to straight stitch and push the bobbin wind button in. (This has a bulls-eye symbol on it.) Wrap the end of the top thread around the presser foot screw several times and hold onto the end. Step on the foot control to start winding. Keep winding until the bobbin is full. The thread wound onto the screw should break. Pull some extra thread and cut it to separate the top and bottom threads. Close the slide plate and set your desired stitch.

Other models are wound at the top of the machine. For some of with a drop-in bobbin, you need to bring the thread down to a catch and then off to the left to another catch. Some have a vertical bobbin. I don't remember if they all have a removable case. Those that do need the thread to come through a notch on the case that pulls the thread under a spring that keeps the bobbin tension. However you should check your manual. If you do not have a manual, check if one is available online. (http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals has many of the Singer manuals for sale or download.)

If you post a comment with the model of your machine, I'll give you a description of threading the bobbin or winding one.

How do i fix a birdnesting problem with my singer 5050c sewing machine , or do you have instructions of how to thread the machine.


Try adjusting the tension. It sounds like the bobbin thread is too loose or the bobbin is not in correctly. Try taking the bobbin out and turning it around and putting it back. When you hold the bobbin in the fingers of your left hand and you pull the thread out with your right hand the bobbin should be turning clockwise. If the nesting persists, try ajusting the tension one way and then the other to see which seems to help. Hope this helps!

My Singer 5050C wants to bunch the thread underneath


Make sure to thread machine with the presser foot raised. Then make sure thread gets in between the tension discs and that you have the machine threaded correctly with the thread going up and into the take-up arm. tension should be set at 4-5.

Bobbin issues


Take out your bobbin case... there should be a small screw fixture on the side of the case...turn screw anti clockwise until you get the correct tension ... To test the bobbin thread tension...Remove the bobbin case keeping bobbin attached and hold it by suspending it by the thread...**** it once or twice, if the tension is correct the thread will unwind by about an inch or two. If it does not unwind at all...tension is too tight. If the tension is too loose it will drop too much. Goog Luck

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!!
