Try taking a hair dryer to it and see if that will free it up. Sometimes heat can make things move. If, it is old, you have nothing to lose taking the cover off and seeing if a belt slipped off or a broken part is in there.

Bobbin winder is engaged and shows up on screen correctly, but sewing mode is still engaged and bobbin winding keeps stopping.


check the drive knob on the end of the machine
it should be loose when winding a bobbin
if it is tight or seized then that will drive the needle

Needle still goes up and down when winding a bobbin


this is common with some machines
check that there is a knob in the centre of the pulley on the end that can be released so that the needle shaft will not drive when winding bobbins
if there is and you have released it then may be it is time for a service .

I have a Mega Quilter and would like to stop the needle from working up and down when I wind my bobbins. Do I do this in the menu of the read out?


Most machines with a bobbin winder on them have a round knob inside of the machines flywheel. That's the wheel that turns when you sew.
TURN the inside knob forward or reverse to lock or unlock the main gears from turning the needle bar in the sewing motion.

Easy

Release stop motion knob won't move


What are you calling a stop motion knob? Are you trying to stop the needle from moving while winding a bobbin?

LED that illuminates the stitch selection bar quit working as did the up/down needle button.


Check your bobbin spindle. If engaged (pushed toward the right) LED will not light. When the clutch knob is pulled out, when you wind a bobbin, the up & down needle will not move. So you must push the clutch knob in again to let the up & down needle go up and down. The clutch knob on my machine is in the large hand wheel upper right side of my machine.

My bobbin will not refill but motor is turning over fine. The machine sews well, too.


Do you have your thread wound around the guide the right way so that there is the proper tension? Do you also have your bobbin resting against the bobbin winder all of the way? Have you released the knob (clutch) to stop the needle bar from going up and down? If, all these things are correct and it still does not wind the bobbin, call Sears.

Needle is moving when bobbin is winding & lights are flashing


Check the clutch at the knob on the right side of the machine, where you tighten it to sew & loosen it to wind a bobbin. It could be very loose and when you start to wind a bobbin, it tightens itself up.

Clutch Release Problem


You will need to remove the clutch release knob and the 3 eared positioner (the clutch) under that knob. Reposition the clutch on the shaft, put the knob back on and see if you can put the screw back in the hole. If it hits something, remove the knob, remove the clutch and turn it 180 degrees. This will reposition the ears. Put the clutch back on the shaft, put the knob back on the shaft and screw the screw into the hole. Test to be sure the knob releases the hand wheel to wind the bobbin.Be sure the thread is under the thread guide when you wind the bobbin and that there is a slight tension on it.

Kenmore Sewing Machine model # c877.15


I have a Kenmore as well ,I hope that this will work for you ,too bad that I don't live close to you otherwise I would give a hand. This is the way I fill the bobbin on mine. Mine is located on the top right ,I put the thread into the bobbin hole leaving a small piece of thread hanging for me to hold when I begin the winding, I pull the wheele out to stop the needle from moving while winding, when I am done just push it back in .I run the thread from the spool into the top left it looks like a U turn with a screw go around that without winding just pull it into the bobbin hole. press the foot control and it will begin winding .
