The bobbin should be placed in the shuttle, with the needle at the top end travel. You can watch the shuttle move as the hand wheel is turned.

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.

Thread got caught in shuttle followed instructions took off shuttle cover and cleaned it &shuttle.I heard a slight little knocking sound no error messages or beeps sewed fine. Can you help please?


Did you replace the needle? Sometimes the needle is damaged when thread hangs up.

You might check the oiling instructions and see if the machine may need some oil.

If the noise continues, the needle could still be hitting or the machine's timing may be off.

I need to know how to clean and oil the machine


From the Sears Kenmore manual:
Using a small brush, remove the lint that accumulates in the shuttle area and around the feed dogs.
To Clean the Shuttle Area:
  1. This area must be kept free of dust, lint and occasional tangled thread. Raise the needle bar to its highest point and remove the bobbin case.
  2. Push levers of shuttle race aside and lift shuttle race cover and shuttle out.
  3. Clean the shuttle race with a small brush.
  4. Put a drop of oil on the center pin of the shuttle and shuttle race.

Singer Model 5050 Timing Problem


Actually,timing of needle vs, shuttle is not very easy job several factor you should check on.There is belt ot sometime a shafting with worm gear and helical gear under machine w/c drive the shuttle with the bobbins in timing order,Any one of them is present on the timing adjustment can be done by releasing the belt or the helical gear,besure machine is unplug then set all mechanism on low dead center meaning the needle move to utmost lower position catching this by the shuttle and bobbins at center position.No motion applied if this was set up,engage the belt with pulley and the bobbins link holder tigh allenscrew besure the needle is lower dead center at the center of shullle bobbins catching needle without motion when setting back at original position.If this was made manually move it on handwheel going up and side down the needle gradually if the needle move freely several time and it was catching this by the shuttle hook bobbins.if ok put thread bobbins and upper thread dial tension with the needle.Move machine on handwheel try to catch the bobbins thread,If this so your machine is ready to sew again if problem occurs on alignment repeat adjustment on perpect alignment,besure all parts on upper casing of machine specially two drive gear are in normal alignment.

Putting bobbin back


you need to set the hook (1/2 moon shaped object) in first. That sits inside the circle. The round race sets in over top of the hook, a lot of times there is a pin or slot that has to match up on the race. Then slide the little arms back into place and you are all set.

Shuttle alignment and assembly


The shuttle/race/bobbin system shouldn't really be taken apart by the average user. Unfortunately, your chances of ever getting it back together properly so the machine will sew (this is the timing of the machine) are very slim. You'll need to take it to a sewing machine technician. I would recommend an authorized Pfaff tech as they'll be sure to have the proper tools to do this correctly - won't be inexpensive but will be worth it. Most "neighborhood sewing machine repair folks" don't have experience on computer machines. Resetting timing on a computer machine isn't the same as the old mechanicals and requires some expertise.

Have a look at www.sewusa.com they have a "repair & threading page" this may help you re-assemble your machine. It is impossible to explain how to put the thing back together and re-time it, it is something you need to be shown how to do. Other alternative is to take it to a sewing machine tech.

Kenmore 385. 11607 needle jams into shuttle or shuttle race


I had the same problem with cleaning and jamming and this might sound silly, but when you're in the middle of trying to fix it remember to look up see that it is threaded up top. I did everything the pp's suggested and when they didn't work I realized the top thread wasn't still threaded around the tension thing anymore. After rethreading it, it worked fine. But I DID reduce the amount of thread on the bobbin at the same time as Drazil suggested.
