Small flip up clip in the center of the bobbin case. Use a small screwdriver to lift it.

    The hook itself is held in with 2 screws on the gear just above the lower shaft. It has a shaft about 3 inches long and has a spot on the hook shaft for the screw to set into. To remove the hook ; remove the presser feet, the needle plate, the feed dogs and the auto opener. Put the machine on it's back side and find the 2 screws I mentioned earlier. Loosen the screws. This hook gear is in an assembly called a saddle assembly which must be moved to the right. There are 2 screws holding the assembly in. They need to be loosened and the assembly can be moved to the right to take out the hook through the top part of the machine. The only problem with this is that when you put everything back together you need to adjust the hook/needle timing and clearances. Quite frankly, this is a major job and it should probably be taken to a technician. Just in case you want to tackle it, the hook must be positioned so that it almost touches the needle(with the saddle assembly) and the point of the hook must pass just above the eye of the needle when the needle has risen approximately 1/8 inch and the stitch length is set at zero.
    Good Luck!!

    Aditional: If you just want to remove the bobbin basket, there are 3 very small screws on the ring on the top surface of the hook. Remove the needle plate, remove the 3 screws(you might want to use a magnetic screwdriver) and take off the ring. The basket will only come out when you have it in the correct position. Once you have removed the ring you can see a lip on the basket as you turn it. You will also see a section which has no lip. This section needs to be turned to the high section of the hook . Lift the basket and it should come out. This may require several tries to get it in the right position so don't quit. Also don't try to pry it out. You will break something.
    I have been thinking about this overnight and realized this(The bobbin basket) is probably what you really wanted to remove. My Mistake

How to thread a bobbin,sears Kenmore model 158.17031

Place both the bobbin case and the bobbin on the table in front of you. Have the open side of the bobbin case facing up and the bobbin with the thread of the bobbin unwinding clockwise. Drop the bobbin in the bobbin case. Pull the thread tail up through the notch in the bobbin case and then to the left under the thin metal plate until the thread appears to be coming out through the hole in the side of the bobbin case. (When you pull the bobbin thread, the bobbin should turn clockwise in the bobbin case.)

The bobbin won't move, is there a certain way it should be placed in it's case

Yes, when you pull the bobbin thread out of the bobbin case, the bobbin should move/circle counter clockwise in the bobbin case. But also sometimes the bobbin may not be the perfect size for the bobbin case, take a good look! Or if your bobbin thread is too full in your bobbin this may cause won't move. In this case, take some of the thread out. Another thing is try to loosening the screw of the bobbin case. This need to be done in extra careful and slow. Since you don't really want to let the screw out of the bobbin case, because its a little bit delicate when it's happen. Hope it will work soon! Good Luck.

I have lost the manual and i dont remember how to thread a bobbin. Pleas help me and thank you!

Juki TL-98Q
Loading the bobbin into the bobbin case:
Snap in the bobbin case latch, and put the bobbin into the bobbin case so that the bobbin runs clockwise.
Passing the thread through the **** of the bobbin case, continue passing it under the thread tension spring, and pull out the thread open end about 10 cm from the bobbin case.
Insert the bobbin case fully into the hook, and close the bobbin case latch.

Problem inserting bobbin

Inserting bobbin into the bobbin case or problem inserting bobbin case into the shuttle?

Make sure the thread will feed from the bobbin clockwise and through the guide on the bobbin case.

Lift the lever on the bobbin case to hold the bobbin in place as you inset the bobbin case into the shuttle.

If the bobbin case for this machine as a "finger", this has to align with the opening in the shuttle.

If you cannot readily see this - move the bobbin case a bit to the left and right until it clicks into place.

I have Brother LX-3125. I am using it for the first time. How can I take the bobbin out of the bobbin case. The case has an empty bobbin snapped in.

the lx 3125 has a front loading bobbin case which must be removed by pulling the latch on the bobbin case and thereby pulling the bobbin case from the shuttle.

once you have the bobbin case in your hand, let go of the latch and the bobbin will drop out of the case. you can now wind the bobbin or replace it with a wound bobbin - make sure that the bobbin thread is threaded down the slot in the case and behind the tension spring, also the bobbin should turn clockwise when you pull the bobbin thread when loking at the bobbin in the case.

Bobbin tension on Viking 350 Sewing Machine

Viking bobbin case tension adjustment:
When the bobbin runs out, sometimes it bends the bobbin case tension spring. Then tension is too light. Take the bobbin case out of the machine. Tie the loose bobbin thread to the Designer 1 needle plate. Insert the bobbin in the bobbin case. Here’s the tricky part set the bobbin case on the table as if it’s in the machine (Bobbin is visible and sitting horizontal to table top) threaded as if sewing and loose end tied to needle plate (that is removed from the machine). Lift the bobbin case off the table rotate it so that the flat side of the bobbin are vertical to the table and no longer horizontal. Have the bobbin case oriented so that the thread coming out of the bobbin case sprint (slot area where it is put for sewing) is at the top. Lift it high enough that the needle plate is lifted from the table. It should not release thread unless you shake it gently and then a very small amount of thread. The needle plate is the exact weight resistance your bobbin case should have on the thread.

My zig zag stitch is distorted on the top side but looks perfect on the underside. I have tried adjusting the tensions and rethreaded the machine, etc.

The bobbin tension sounds too loose. This will help if you have a bobbin case and not a drop in bobbin. Let me know if you have a drop in bobbin:
Setting bobbin case tension:
Put wound bobbin in bobbin case. Thread it in case. Hold the thread and carefully let go of the case only holding bobbin thread. The case should NOT move. Quickly let your hand drop 2-3 inches to let the bobbin case free fall for 2-3 inches, the bobbin case should move slightly then stop. It moves because it let’s a little thread off the bobbin. It should then stop .5"- 2" of thread should release. If so, your bobbin case tension is right. If it’s right then begin to look at your top thread tension. Always Always start with a properly adjusted bobbin case, then adjust your top tension accordingly.
