If this is the machine I think it is the bobbin case is completely round as opposed to half round. If it is half round ignore the following.
Remove the presser foot and then the two screws which hold the needle plate. Lift off the needle plate and then lift out the old bobbin case. Clean all the lint out and then insert the bobbin case so that the less round part of it is to the back and the lip around the bobbin case is resting on the lip around the hook. Turn the hand wheel a few times to be sure it is working smoothly and not binding. Replace the Needle plate , bobbin and presser foot. Insert a new needle,thread the machine, Check your tension to be sure it is working correctly, turn the hand wheel again to be sure it is picking up the thread without binding and sew.

MY BOBBIN CASE HAS FALLEN APART AND I'M NOT SURE HOW TO PUT THE PIECES BACK TOGETHER.


Sounds like you are describing the hook. Perhaps the owner's manual would be assistance. We don't know the make/model of your machine so are really unable to help. There are some videos on YouTube that show how to install a shuttle and bobbin case, but machines differ.

The black plastic piece the bobbin fit in is broken.


You may have a timing problem or bent needle. You will need to replace the bobbin basket if it is damaged.

Sounds like the timing adjustment of the bobbin case has been upset. Have that checked, it involves an adjustment on the gear that drives the bobbin case.

How to you put back the bobbin case into the machine?


There is a black lever that holds in the case (look for it at around the 10-11 o'clock area on the circle where the bobbin case fits into. You need to use a screw driver (the one that came with the machine) and push and hold it back enough to wedge the bobbin case back in. the little black lever is spring loaded so it will go back to its normal position.

Want pick up my bobbin


re-thread the top thread

when putting in the bobbin, make sure you put it in right,

hold the bobbin between you thumb and first finger of your right hand when you pull the thread with left hand it should rotate the bobbin counter clockwise.

If you run your machine all day you need to clean under the bobbin case,

Take the cover plate off, take out the bobbin case and clean under, i take a q-tip with machine oil and rub around the inside of the metal case and around the bobbin case,

replace the plastic bobbin case making sure it's in right, turn the hand wheel by hand, the case should stay still and the inside will move, the needle should not hit anything

put all back together and try again

if the bobbin turns clockwise you are going to have problems

if this helps please rate it
thanks,
good luck

Broken plastic black peice sits down by bobbin (singer 81 on it)


This is an Apollo bobbin case and most sewing machine dealers will have them. Costs less than $20.
When you install it you will find a finger with a slot in it(located about 10'clock) that must be turned to the left to open it before the case will go back in.

Bobbin Case


ok Sim this is a bit tricky but not to tricky first turn the handwheel toward you until the hook is at one o clock postion then slide the case without the bobbin in into the hook area you may have to work the handwheel back and forth alittle but it should slide in just remember that the case should ride in the rim. also take the needle out first that way you wont get stuck trust me it happiens.

Bobbin Case


I'm having a similar problem today. I took out the bobbin case and when I went to put it back in, the whole system locks up. I've tired cleaning, changing needle taking the metal plate and piece that holds bobbin case out and put it all back in after cleaning. Nothing. My symptom is I can't get a complete stitch, the needle goes down, the whole deal acts like it will work and as soon as the arm of the bobbin case gets to 8 o' clock on the gears, It jams and won't hardly move. I cannot pull the bobbin case out easily after this. Perhaps there is someone out there that can help us!

Bobbin case is moving out of place


I was having the same problem with my machine and finally the spring broke. I couldn't find any parts for this so my husband made me a new spring out of a coke can! LOL!! Anyway, he messed with it for a while and it kept doing it. He figured out that it was not the spring but the other piece under the spring was not pushed up far enough to keep the bobbin case in place so he took a screw driver and pushed it forward toward the bobbin case and now my bobbin case does not move!! And the machine is sewing perfect! At least for now. Anyway, it's not the spring or the thread adjusting screw!
