You can download a manual from here http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html, just type in the model number and click on 'search' to locate your machine's one.

As a rule of thumb, the thread usually comes off a bobbin goes through the tension then reverses direction back the other way. So as you pull the thread, the bobbin usually turns anticlockwise. But always check the manual to be sure.

Threading correct way


My 7th grade home ec. teacher taught us that just about all machines thread the same: Spool, Thread guide, Thread guide, Tension, Take up lever, Thread guide, Thread Guide, Needle. I haven't come across a machine yet that hasn't followed these guidelines (the number of thread guides vary) If the thread make a "crow nest" under the fabric, your bobbin may be in backwards. Again, most machines the bobbin should turn COUNTER clockwise. To check, thread the bobbin and hold so you can see the direction it turns when the thread is pulled. It should spin counter clockwise. Still having problems, be sure the presser foot is down. Still a mess, then your machine my be one that turns clockwise.

The thread clicks when it goes around the bobbin and I have to stop sewing as it makes a big knot on the back of the fabric. I have cleaned out the bobbin case but it is still not sewing properly. It was...


Hello Supernana.

Check to see if you have your bobbin in upside down. If your machine requires it to unspool from one side having it spool from the other side (counter clockwise vs clockwise) can cause you problems like this. Your manual should tell the correct direction. My machine (Brother) for instance requires that the thread to pull counter clockwise direction.

After 3 or 4 stiches, the bobbin thread binds up in the lower mechanisim. I cant get the machine to stitch at all.


Either you are putting the bobbin in backwards. The thread should come off counter clockwise or the tension on the bobbin in too loose. I have done both several times in my lifetime.

Want pick up my bobbin


re-thread the top thread

when putting in the bobbin, make sure you put it in right,

hold the bobbin between you thumb and first finger of your right hand when you pull the thread with left hand it should rotate the bobbin counter clockwise.

If you run your machine all day you need to clean under the bobbin case,

Take the cover plate off, take out the bobbin case and clean under, i take a q-tip with machine oil and rub around the inside of the metal case and around the bobbin case,

replace the plastic bobbin case making sure it's in right, turn the hand wheel by hand, the case should stay still and the inside will move, the needle should not hit anything

put all back together and try again

if the bobbin turns clockwise you are going to have problems

if this helps please rate it
thanks,
good luck
