SOURCE: my singer athena 2000 won't

I think if you watch the hook as you turn the wheel you will see that it is not moving.If it's not moving it can't pick up the thread or sew or wind the bobbin. If you really like this machine you can take it to a technician who is going to tell you you have a broken gear.Always have them replaced in pairs. On this machine there are 2 gears( 1 Pair) on the left and 2 gears( 1 Pair) on the right. If the machine is making buzzing noises, replace the machine instead of the gears. Singer makes a nice machine which sells for around $300 which will do more than the one you have and it is easier to use. Look at Model 7467. I sell quite a few of these and they don't give me or my customers problems.

Athena 2000 won't wind bobbin. Needle goes up and down, but won't catch in bobbin


If you are unable to wind bobbins on your machine, for ~$25 you can purchase a stand-alone bobbin winder at the local fabric store (JoAnns or Hancocks) or online (Amazon.com).

How do i thread the bobbin on a singer athena 1200 sewing machine


The Athena 1200 and 2000 are "Touch and Sew" slant needle machines. Singer has not made them for many years, but I always loved them, because the bobbin is wound in place--you don't take it out! You can still get a full assortment of presser feet for them; just make sure they're for slant needle machines.

You would be wise to visit the Singer Sewing Machine site and download your user's manual--it's free, and it will show you how to wind the bobbin. There are a series of pictures there as well. There are several steps you need to take, such as raising the presser foot, selecting the blind hem stitch, etc. Sounds complicated, but I owned an Athena 1200, and I can tell you that after the first or second try, you'll find it quite easy.

Incidentally, did you know that it's one of those rare machines that will do a TRUE 1/2" basting stitch! I kept it for years, just for that ability!

Winding bobbin athena 2000


I had one of these machines, they're Touch and Sew, and the bobbin winds in place. Check to make sure you actually have the correct bobbin inserted, because the bobbin it uses is available with a metal center post and without a center post, and yours takes the one without. I had another machine that took the center post one and accidentally put the wrong one in the 2000 one day and had the same problem.

Hi, I have an Elna 410 and am having problems with winding the bobbin. I have a manual and have attempted this procedure several times but with no success. The flywheel is moving but the bobbin is just...


The 410 is one of the "made under licence" Elnas I think, circa '80's?
Do you disengage the flywheel clutch to wind a bobbin?

If you have tried it following instructions in manual carefully, and it won't wind, then it could be that the bobbin winder rubber has perished/failed and needs replacing. You may find parts for this on www.whitesewingcentre.com, www.sewingpartsonline.com or another of the parts websites.

Or take it to a service tech and ask them to quote repairing this part.

Can't wind bobbin kenmore 16221 sewing machine, no manual


On the right side of the machine there is a large knob at the top. Pull that out and you can wind your bobbin. Don't forget to push it back in so you can sew :)
