I have a Koyo sewing machine but I do not know the model no. I am missing an o ring. This makes it impossible to fill the bobbin. Is it possible to supply pictures of all Koyo sewing machines models online?

I have this machine. I use it for my heavy sewing, as it will go through anything. I would be happy to copy the manual and send it to you for copy costs. Just let me know. I would love to know what knowledge you have gained about this machine. It does not appear to be an easy machine to find info on, may not have produced a lot? I had no idea it was not a European produced machine.

SOURCE: my singer 4166 sewing machine won't pick up the bo...

I had the same problem straight out of the box. I decided to buy a new machine and came across the 4166. It had more than enough functions and seemed to run smoothly. I too have problems with the bobbin not threading so I took it back into the store thinking I was doing something wrong. The saleswoman had the same problem. I was going to exchange it for another but before leaving I wanted to check to see if it worked. Again, same problem so I left without a machine. I spoke to the owner only to be told that 30% Singer machines are lemons and have to be returned for servicing because they don't work from the start. This is a waste of money and time.
The only suggestion I can offer is to either forget about the machine or take it into be serviced.

Hi, pop the bobbin out of the chamber, wind it with the thread of your choice and replace it in the sewing machine. Threading it from this point is a straightforward process.

Hold the bobbin case in your left hand with the hinged latch facing to the left and the opening facing to the right. Grasp the filled bobbin in your right hand with about 3 inches of thread extending from the bobbin. The thread must go around the bobbin in a clockwise direction.
Insert the bobbin into the bobbin case and pull the thread into the slot on the side of the bobbin case.
Continue to pull the thread through the slot until it passes through a tension spring. Pull out several more inches of thread so the thread tail is approximately 5 inches long.
Make sure the sewing machine needle is all the way up.
Hold the bobbin case by the hinged latch and make sure the thread tail extends down the right edge of the bobbin case. Open the bobbin compartment.
Insert the bobbin case into the bobbin compartment by fitting it in. Find the small notch where the top of the bobbin case fits. Let go of the hinged latch and fold it back onto the bobbin case. Close the bobbin compartment.
Grasp the top thread and turn the hand wheel on the side of the sewing machine toward you. Turn until the needle goes up and down several times, and then pull carefully on the thread. This pulling should bring up the lower bobbin thread.
Pull the upper and lower threads together and extend them out toward the back of the sewing machine to begin sewing.

What can you do to stop squeaking when I'm winding bobbin


Spray wherever the squeak is coming from with a dry silicone lubricant called 'Jigaloo' or WD40 Dry Silicone Lubricant. It is also great for sliding windows.

Royal Series, Necchi, Model # 80331763 bobbin does not take up thread properly. No manual unsure if i am threading it correctly.


You can get Necchi instruction manual from Necchi website: http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Necchi_Sewing_Machines.htm". Makesure the needle is in the machine correctly- all the way up into the needlebar, make sure that it is threaded correctly, etc. If this all checks out ok,take the bobbin case out of the machine. There are two ears on either side ofthe bobbin case- turn the left one to the left and the right one to the right.Remove the silver ring, and inspect the piece of metal that the ring came off of(looks like a circle with the top cut off). You have to locate the hook whichis the piece that looks like a half moon inside the big round metal piece.Locate the tip of it, turn the hand wheel toward you until the needle is in thelowest position, at this point the tip of the hook should be flush with top ofthe left side of the cut off circle. Checkwhether underneath thread is looping on the fabric. If so then you've mis-threadedthe top, probably haven't raised the presser foot when threading so you can getthe upper thread into the tension. You need to thread the upper part with thepresser foot up. (You can put it down to thread the needle.)

Not picking up thread can be several issues, like bobbin is miswound, bobbincase isn't snapped in properly, you're using the wrong type bobbin, machine isout of time, needle is bent or burred, machine is dirty and in need of dustbunny eviction and a little oil but most of the time the issue is once againmisthreading: sewing machine needles have a front and a back and they have tobe placed in the needle holder correctly. In that case your manual is needed, take all the thread offthe machine (yes, spool off the spool pin, bobbin out of the bobbin case), pullthe needle plate and clean your machine thoroughly, using brush and vacuum (notcompressed air) and oiling per the instruction manual. Put it all backtogether, putting in a 80/12 needle, correctly oriented. Hang on to theneedle thread when you fetch up the bobbin thread.

Each and every seam you start is going to be done this way:
1) Pull the tail of the top and bobbin thread behind the presser foot
2) Put the work under the needle and use the hand wheel to lower the needleinto the work
3) Drop the presser foot
4) Holding the thread tails behind the foot, take a couple of stitches.
5) Drop the thread tails and sew normally. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

Thread gets under needle while sewing. needle then cuts thread. is this a bobbin tension problem? thanks!


Hi. My guess would be no. Sounds more like an upper or needle thread tension problem than a lower or bobbin thread tension problem. Your trouble could also be the thread take-up lever was missed when threading the machine. Trace the thread path to make sure the threading is correct. Is this an embroidery machine? If not, were you trying make a darning stitch? Perhaps with the foot raised? Keep in mind that raising the foot loosens the upper thread tension.

I have a ruffler for my kenmore sewing machine and im not sure how to use it i know where to put it and everything but im not sure how to use it


Not knowing what model you have, my answer is based on sewing knowledge. The ruffler is an attachment which replaces other presser feet. so you will need to remove your everyday presser foot and put the ruffler on in it's place. You have to make upper/bobbin thread adjustments based on your machine...Do you have your manual???? Happy Sewing.

I received singer sewing machine 2623 machine and I do not have the manual. How can I get it and how do I fill the bobbin


Singer has manuals for most of their sewing machines available at their site. For the 2623, the manual is only available as a bound copy for $15. Go to http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals and enter the model number then click Search.

I believe on this model, you fill the bobbin with it on the metal pin on the top right of the machine. With a metal presser foot in place, bring the thread up and around the guide that pin. Wrap the thread a few times around the bobbin. Set the lever to the bobbin winding position and begin winding. Stop and trim the excess thread from your initial wraps after it is fully caught. Then complete winding the bobbin.

(On other Singer machines, you fill the bobbin in place with the bobbin cover moved halfway open.)

I hope this helps.

adjust your tension.You probably did not wind your bobbin properly as well.Make sure you oil your machine every month or so and make sure your bobbin is seated properly before you sew.
Go slower with the pressure foot speed and use the right needle.ALWAYS test on scrap of your sewing material first!!!

I have this machine for like 2 years and can do 2-5oz cowhide and buffalo leather on it (no joke, and it works FLAWLESSLY) inside it has full steel construction,just needs regular oiling compared to pro machines and easily made a few grand $$$ with it while my pro machine is getting repaired (I don't even bother with my pro machine anymore) But you MUST oil it every month and use the RIGHT needle and adjust your tension properly
Also pull out the thread a good 6 inches from the needle and bobbin before dropping the pressure foot and sewing.
Best $70 bucks (WITH TAX) I spent hell,the leather I use costs more than the machine!
