SOURCE: 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!

The opening fits on the right side, toward back. There is the silver ring with the slot in it for the bobbin. That slot is facing the sewer.

SOURCE: Singer Sewing Machine model 9224. Bobbin thread

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.

Let me know.

From what I gather on other sites, your thread has to be threaded under tension.... You have to make sure you hear a click when your bringing your thread down to the bottom of the "arm". Also, I thought the bobbin case was rather loosely held in its place, I adjusted this by unscrewing the black plate and moving it over just a smidge. The bobbin is supposed to have some wiggle room, but it kept popping up and making the tiny adjustment seems to have done the trick....for now...

unscrew the black plate that holds in the bobbin case and move it over to the left just a little bit, but make sure there is still clearance between the lower right corner of the case and the plate. The case should be able to wiggle a little, but not so loose it can pop out..

It must not be inserted right, check your manual and if you do not have it handy, go to singerco.com and download one for free. You can cause real damage if it is loose, so be careful that something isn't broken and not letting it seat right.

Your problem sounds like the thread is jamming under the bobbin basket. This can be caused by the retainers for the bobbin being out of adjustment.

Singer 2662 bobbin case keeps popping out.


Check our bobbin for burrs and damage. If the thread catches a rough edge it can pop the bobbin out. Try a different bobbin with new thread... see if that helps. If it does your current bobbin is likely trash.

Hope that helps.

Make sure the bobbin case sets sort of on top and not under the ridge of the metal ring. There is a small latch on the upper left of the bobbin case. It is metal. rotate the latch to cover the bobbin case and this should stabilize the case without making it immobile

Bobbin case pops out


Are you sure it is the correct bobbin case ? If it is check the spindle it slides onto and make sure there is not a bit of lint or cotton on there, this will cause it to not engage the locking latch correctly. Also is the bobbin is not the correct one, or is bent it will not lock in correctly. The other thing to do is put a drop of oild on the spindle the bobbin case slides onto.

I just purchase a Singer 301 and cant get the bobbin case out


Raise the bed extension, revealing the bobbin area. Gently pull out on the bobbin case latch and it should pop right out in your hand. Congrats on your 301, they are wonderful machines!

Bobbin case retainer popping out on Singer Touch & Sew 625


Take the bobbin case out. Then when you go to put it in, realize there are 2 ways to get it. You have found one way. The other way is first look in the the slot with a flashlight before you insert it. There is a flat piece of metal the bracket needs to be slid under as it is inserted. This acts like a spring making it tight

It is either inserted incorrectly or the bobbin case needs replacing. Check the bobbin case by running finger tip around the outside of case, if rough spot needs replace. There is a ltch that is spring loaded you must hold back with small bladed screwdriver while inserting case for proper placement
