SOURCE: Bobbin stuck on bobbin winder, how do I get it off? it will not budge!

Is thread under bobbin? can you turn it? can you pull the thread off the bobbin and then remove it? Bobbin that comes with machine may not be right one. Right one has a light blue tint and a slightly domed top.

SOURCE: singer 328k bobbin winder replacement

Follow these instructions, undo the 2 screws on the right hand side plate where the balance wheel is and take the plate off, undo the screw on the chrome stop motion wheel, undo the stop motion and take it off, take off the 2 pronged washer and notice which way it goes on, not a problem if you can't remember, you should be able to pull the balance wheel back so you can get to the screws on the winder, if you can.t and if you have a problem getting the balance wheel all the way then go the very bottom of the machine and you will see 2 big holes and one of the holes will lead you to a big screw and nylon adjuster, slacken the screw and move the nylon adjust so the belt goes slack, you can not take the balance wheel all the way off to get to the screws on the winder, take the old one off and screw the new one on, whilst you have the balance wheel off it would be wise to put some thin oil on the shaft before you put the balance wheel back on, when you have the balance wheel on and the and the belt round the pulley turn the nylon adjuster so the belt is tight and tighten up the screw, put the side plate back on, put the 3 pronged washer back on, put the stop motion wheel back on and just tighten finger tight then tighten the small screw.

SOURCE: I have a singer 503A. The bobbin winder will not

When you have the winder rubber on try and turn the winder by hand, if it does not move the chances are the winder has seized, if the winder wheel is moving but not the spindle then the grip (thread) has worn, if you cannot move the whole winder by hand and it has seized you need to get some WD40 and spray a few drops down the spindle, take an electric drill and put it over the top of the spindle and switch it on slowly and it will probably free it off, be aware of oil splashing out.

Singer Tradition - my bobbin winder has stopped winding so I have to wind thread on manually.


Check on a standalone bobbin winder called "Sidewinder." Make sure it is compatible with your bobbins--some bobbins won't work on the Sidewinder. If it is compatible, then for ~$30 you can wind all your bobbins. (I have one that is powered by battery or by electricity.)

Does a stand alone bobbin winder for futura singer bobbin exist?


A stand alone bobbin winder DOES exist, is commonly available, does a better job, AND is inexpensive. Just go to the WalMart site (even if you don't want to buy from there) and put "bobbin winder" as a search term. My favorite is a Simplicity, available for under $25, AND if you order it and pick it up at one or their stores or a FedEx facility, shipping is free.

Just received a singer futura II model 920 which seems to sew just right. When I tried to wind a bobbin, I just can't get it done.


If it is a new machine, take it for warranty service. Sounds like perhaps something is misaligned with the release lever. In the meantime, a standalone bobbin winder can be purchased at JoAnn's, Hancocks, or Amazon.com for about $35 (helps reduce wear & tear on your machine).
===============

It's very difficult to say whether it is worth the price of repair. On the other hand, what would you do with a machine that doesn't work? It could be something very simple that can be repaired for a small price, or it could be something expensive. (However, since you indicate it is only the bobbin winder that is faulty, otherwise the machine works with that one exception, you can save up to get the bobbin winder fixed.) FWIW, a standard check, clean & oil could cost around $100 (based on what I currently pay for my machines). However, you could ask what it would cost to fix the bobbin winder only.

From a search on eBay:
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=singer+futura+920

You can track similar machines and their sales prices to determine if it would be worth fixing your machine. Even if you don't, you can still purchase the standalone bobbin winder and continue to use the machine anyway. A working machine is better than none at all.

If the machine will still sew, consider purchasing a stand-alone bobbin winder from the local fabric store (JoAnn's or Hancocks) or from Amazon.com.

My singer 5932 auto bobbin winder is not working?


Make sure that something like your buttonhole lever or button for a twin needle are not down (if you have them). You can get it fixed, but you can also just buy a Simplicity bobbin winder for under $25, that actually does a better job anyway.

Three possible causes: 1.Bobbin not push fully down the bobbin winder spindle
2.Need to push bobbin winder spindle to the left before you can wind the bobbin
3.The bobbin winder spindle rubber ring has worn out. This will need a local technician to fix it.

My bobbin won't catch on the bobbin winder, the metal post spins but the plastic singer style bobbin won't spin with it. What's wrong?


The bobbin may be stripped, or the bobbin winder might be stripped; try it with a different bobbin, to rule out the bobbin being the issue; if that doesn't work, look closely at the bobbin winder to see if it has been damaged. You may be able to adjust it's shape with a pliers

We have 2 singer 7442 machines and they will no longer wind the bobbin. Up to this point we followed the instructions the manual gave on how to thread and wind the bobbin. How do we fix?


If you have followed the instructions and the winders do not work, the machines will need to be repaired, or you could purchase a Sidewinder Bobbin Winder and forgo the expense of having the machines repaired.
