Question about White Sewing 1409 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Okay, I am back with a model # it is a White......Model # 1477 with only one bobbin and no instructions, but it seems like a wonderful machine. I just can't get the re-wound bobbin to stay in and sew. This is a different set-up that my old dead sewing machine, which was a 1972 White. Thank you for any help, or a manual.

Where to find Free PDF manuals for White sewing machines and Overlockers/Sergers


Hi
strange as it may seem, there are free White overlocker/serger manuals via the Singer website. The manuals include 19th century models too!

Look under Singer's "Support and Resouces" then select "Instruction manuals" , or follow this link: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals

On the Instructions Manual page you'll see it says "Find Your Manual - Step 1, Step 2 etc etc" and under that there's a search box that says "Model Number"

Into this search box just type "w"
(don't type "white", because that doesn't work)

You'll be taken to a near incomprehensible results page,
A) if you have a 20th century model, try doing a find via Ctrl-F and enter in your machine's model number.

B) if you have a 19th century machine, unfortunately the method to finding the manual you need is a case of clicking and opening the PDFs.
However may I suggest a couple that may be of use:
"W7treadle"
- this is a manual of White treadle with a "boat" style bobbin shuttle
"WRotary"
- this is a manual of White treadle with a "rotary" style bobbin shuttle

Good luck, and I hope you find what you need :)
Kind regards
Kura

Repair bobbin case on mighty mender W100


this doesn't really address the problem. The question is not about the bobbin itself. It is about the Bobbin CASE. The case has popped out and I can't figure out how to put it back in. The machine is all plastic and I don't want to try to force it back in because it may break. The instruction manual is no help really. It shows you what position the case should be in, but it doesn't tell you how to put it in. For example, does the needle need to be in an up position, do I need to put it in at an angle, if so tilted in what direction, etc.?

I bought my daughter a White sew E-Z so she can have fun on her first sewing machine. However there is no manual and no instructions on how to thread the bobin. the bobin just sits on its flat side to go...


Check the model number of the machine. White sewing machine manuals are available from Singer at http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals . Enter the model number and click Search.

The White Sew E-Z model W338 manual is available here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/705_white-338-x.pdf .

Unlike some machines this one doesn't really need the bobbin threaded. Place the bobbin in the bobbin holder and leave about 5" of thread extended out from the bobbin holder. With the bobbin compartment still open, lower the presser foot and turn the handwheel to move the threaded needle through the stitch cycle. (I find holding the threads helps; normally, you'll feel them pulling under your fingers.) When the needle has returned to the top of the path, lift the presser foot. Then pull both threads around to the front (the bobbin thread should wrap around the top thread). Then move the threads to the back of the presser foot.

If the needle isn't catching the bobbin thread, first try a new needle (bent or dull needles don't always function properly). Next check the bobbin holder for nicks or other damage. There is a small hook on the bobbin holder that should be where the top and bottom threads intertwine. Under rare circumstances, you will find that the bobbin tension of the bobbin holder is misadjusted. This can interfere with the bobbin thread twisting properly. There is a little set screw that allows you can tighten or loosen the bobbin tension as needed. Adjusting the screw is to be avoided when possible and done in small increments (1/8 turn) if needed. It's easy to strip the threads for the set screw and end up needing to replace the bobbin holder.

I hope this helps.

The thread is not coming out of the bobbin properly


I could not find any reference material for this model.

But, Singer has examples and instructions for both a drop in bobbin and a rotary (side/front) bobbin.

Hope this helps.

If you contact the White Sewing Machine Company they may send you a new manual.

Model #385 1792290 The bobbin seems to jump up and down. The stiching is okay but the noise is annoying. Thank you


Could be several things, here are the likely causes in order of probability:
- wrong bobbin
- damaged bobbin case
- damaged shuttle
