Make sure you are running you thread around the bobbin to get it started start slow when winding, is there something under your sewing foot(on the floor) when you are sewing if it's slowing down sounds like something may be holding it back, only other thing that may cause something would be internally if not the feed dogs. let me know hope this helps amy

against the spool.


back to front. Pull the thread clockwise around

foot control or the start/stop button to start

winding the bobbin.

When the bobbin is full, the bobbin winding

When trying to load the bobbin with thread, only top half threads and is tangled. Has worked great till now.

Difficult to assess without a make & model.

The machine has a tensioner for the bobbin winder. Make sure that you are threading that tensioner before taking it to the bobbin winder. Also, sometimes the thread should make a complete loop around that tensioner (consult your owner's manual). Check that the thread spool is spinning the correct direction--most often the thread spool turns counter-clockwise on the spool pin. Running the thread the wrong direction could cause thread kinks or the thread plies to separate. Slow down the speed that you wind the bobbin. Fast speeds will cause the thread to stretch. Plus, if something goes haywire, you won't have a bobbin bouncing or thread flying all over the sewing room before you can stop the machine. Frequently, the bobbin will fill more in one area of the bobbin. You can gently guide the thread by pushing it up or down lightly with a pencil tip or other object to even the thread distribution on the bobbin.

Bobbin spinning up off spool when winding

Slow down the speed. Bobbins should not be wound at a high speed because it will sometimes cause the bobbin or thread spool to rise (and even jump off the machine!). Also the thread tends to be stretched when wound onto the bobbin. Then when sewing, the thread relaxes and may cause the fabric to pucker.

When following manual directions to wind a bobbin, it starts out OK, but after several winds, the thread turns out with little loops on the bobbin. ??? Sylvia

Make sure that you are running the thread through the winder tension guide before it goes bobbin winder. Best to consult your owner's manual.

Also, it helps to slow down the winding process. Slower speed winds the bobbin more consistently and does not stretch the thread as much as a fast speed will.

My overlocker keeps snapping the bottom thread. Why?


lower your top tension down, as it is tighter then your bobbin thread and also tighten your bobbin thread, this is done by the small screw on the bobbin holder, also you can try using the older metal bobbins these are the ones with the small holes around the top and bottom shank, but please make sure that they are the larger size bobbin, and only go very slow at first, try just in sewing mode first or just wind it over by hand.
