Could be in around the wrong way, poorly wound or not under tension correctly. Or even the wrong bobbin for this machine.

I suggest that you check that the bobbin is correct, ie do you have several that came with the machine and are they all the same in shape and diameter? Consult the manual if you have one.

Nextly, wind a fresh bobbin taking the thread from the spool through the tensioner (if your machine has one on the top) and then onto the bobbin. Keep a little tension on the thread spool with the handle of your scissors to ensure that the bobbin winds smoothly and evenly. Use your finger tip to nudge the thread to fill all areas of the bobbin. You want a neat smooth wind so the thread will then flow smoothly off the bobbin when it is in the machine making stitches.

Now, load the bobbin into the bobbin holder or bobbin case as per your manual, ensuring the thread is correctly into the tension spring and bobbin is rotating the right way around.

Now thread up and test sew again.

It can't pick up the thread out to sew


Make sure that you have a tail on the bobin thread when in place and a tail on the needle thread, hold the needle thread and turn the wheel to bring up the bobin thread before trying to sew

My thread got caught inside where the bobin is so I took out the bobin and the thread was still stuck. I took out the 2 metal pieces that hold the bobin in place and now I can't get them back in. Help?!


Insert the small metal piece into the big piece. Try turning it in a circle one way. It should fall into place. It it doesn't, take the small piece, flip it, and turn again in a circle. It's very easy. Or go to ebay under bobbins so that you can see a picture.

Bobbin gets tangled up


Try taking the covers off again. Now check under and around the bobin case, thats the black plastic bit that holds the bobin. Look for any fuzz or stray bits of thread inside the machine and and around the feed dogs and under the needle too. I use compressed canned air to get in and really blow everything clean. For some reason if the machine is not totally clean, inside the bobin gets tangled up. If you have had even one knot, odds are parts of it are still floating around inside there somewhere and stopping some little lever from moving and jamming your whole machine. Clean under the bobin case too since lint can left it up and keep the bobin from being perfectly level. Also inspect your bobbin case to make sure it isn't scratched along the edge that rotates back and forth. Even a a tiny scratch will cause it jump its tracks and your bobin will lift up and become jamed. In that case you just have to buy a new bobin case. But most of the time your culprit will be some stray bits of thread or lint.

I have model 8280 and the bobbin thread keeps bunching up on the bottom. I have tried to rethread it but it keeps happening.


i think your putting in your bobin backwards,
to check put your bobin in and hold bobin , and bobin case by thread if it unrolls its backwards,
hope this helps!!

MY machine has never worked perfet liked I hoped it would. When I embroider the top thread ends up all lose and


This could be caused by many things but I would suggest that you take the machine to your local dealer for them to have a look at as the bobbin case may be the problem and they may have to replace it. If you look at the bobbin case it should be smooth all the way around - if there's rough edges then that could cause a problem. Also if the bobbin case jumps out of the socket then this is a good indication that you need to have it replaced.
