Bobbin problem I have just set up the machine & it was working until I changed the bobbin to a new color. I think I have the bobbin & case loaded properly but now the thread from the needle does not pull the bobbin thread up. What did I do wrong?

This machine has a safety clutch which is designed to protect the hook mechanism.To access it, place the machine on it's back. About 8-10 inches from the right side you will see an assembly on the main shaft. You need to hold this assembly with a push button located on the bed of the machine while you turn the handwheel. It will click in place when it is in the correct position. Once you've done this the machine should be back in time so it will sew.Hold the top thread ,turn the handwheel and draw the bottom thread up before you begin sewing. Place a piece of fabric under the foot , turn the wheel by hand to make sure there is no binding and that the thread is being picked up.

My machine will not pick up the bobbin thread


Install a brand new needle (verify it is facing the proper direction).

Remove all the thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading. Rethread the machine from the beginning--verify the thread path is correct. Leave at least 4-6" of thread tail. from the needle (Avoid using old or bargain bin thread.)

Insert the bobbin in the bobbin case (make sure the bobbin is turning the correct direction) and thread the bobbin case. Load the bobbin case in the machine. Leave at least 4-6" of thread tail.

Set the upper tension to the midway point.

Retest your machine. Turn the handwheel toward you manually until the needle completes one full cycle of going down and up.

If it is still not picking up the bobbin thread, it may have a needle/hook timing issue. Take it for service.

The directions are very vague about how to thread the bottom bobbin. I have no idea how this is to be done or how the needle will pick it up. Help Please!


you don't thread the bobbin as such
wind sufficient thread on to the bobbin (use the rewind section of the machine )
place the bobbin in the bobbin carrier in such a manner that the thread unwinds anticlockwise
take the thread and pull it around the edge of the bobbin holder until you reach the slot in the holder
pull the thread down that slot and under the flat spring plate at the bottom of the slot
That plate controls the tension of the bottom thread
pull out about 5" of thread and while holding the thread put the bobbin holder and the bobbin into the machine making sure that it goes right in and clicks in place ( turn it to achieve the click
The needle should be fully up for this procedure
now thread the needle and hold the end of the thread while you hand turn the machine in the sewing direction
the needle will go down and if not on the first time will on the second time pull up the bobbin thread
pull that bobbin thread up and place it along with the needle thread under the foot plate and out the back comment if that doesn't work as there may be a bigger fault that can be fixed

How do I get rid of excessive thread on the bottom of the fabric. I think this is thread from the bobbin.


changing feet on the machine does not effect tension . only changing bobbin will do that and most times it will be because you did not insert properly .

The machine was working fine until I changed the thread and bobbin. When I start to stitch, the bobbin thread and needle thread aren't looping together.


Install a brand new needle. Make sure it is installed facing the correct direction.

Remove all the thread from the machine. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning confirming that no thread guides were missed in the process. Check to make sure the bobbin is loaded and threaded properly in the bobbin case.

I have a singer fashion maker rotomatic sewing machine..its bobbin case is broken..i have purchased it but don't know how to install it


I believe that is top loading Apollo bobbin case if so, facing the front of the machine underneath bobbin cover/door there should be a bracket on the left (holds bobbin case) move it back, set case in with the cut out pointing to the back of the machine, you may have to wiggle it a bit until you feel it is seated the move the bracket back over the bobbin case

Singer HD110C will not pick up bobbin thread. When I took a look at the bobbin, the bobbin case came out. After many tries and You Tube videos, I think the bobbin case is back in correctly, but the bobbin...


The hook timing is mechanically set. If all you used was your fingers, you did not change the timing.

First, just relax. There are a lot of almost right ways for the bobbin case to set into the hook.

Second, Be sure the needle is all the way up.

Third, wiggle the bobbin case around until it "drops" into the "hook". (The hook is the flattened cup thing that rotates around the bobbin case.)

Fourth, if there is not enough wiggle room, take out the screws that hold the metal cover plate. It should be very easy to see the hook and see when the bobbin case drops into position.

Putting bobbin pieces back into machine


I think your machine timing is changing . So you can not put the bobbin case. Please adjust or change the timing set.

CANT GET TENSION SET AND ITS SO FAR OFF DONT KNOW WHERE TO START....vogue stitch old..model.label on back says model 1300/1500 or mercury model 704


try www.sewusa.com repairs page for troubleshooting help. start by cleaning and oiling machine. then wind a new bobbin and put in a new needle. load bobbin into bobbin case and ensure thread goes into tension spring. now dangle bobbin case by holding thread tail, bobbin should hang in the air but release thread if you pull it. adjust the tension screw on case 1/4turns only and test again until you get it tight enough to 'dangle'. now load bobbin into rotary hook of machine and thread top. now test sew and adjust top tension in small increments if neede to balance the stitch. but if top tension is wirking okay then 4-6 range should be fine.

Hello. I own a Singer 4423 Heavy Duty sewing machine. It has been working fine overall, but today it is giving me problems with jamming. At first it jammed underneath the plate and created a huge ball of...


Make sure thread is not laying across the bobbin when you look down into the plastic slider that covers the top loading bobbin case. The bobbin on mine I observed was loose in the case so that as the machine ran, eventually the bobbin thread would jump out of the stitch finger (the silver piece to the far left of the bobbin case, past the tension slots). I solved this problem and so can you! Take the extra felt spool pin felt in your accessories kit that came with the machine, remove bobbin from case and drop this small felt circle into the bobbin case. Replace bobbin. On the 4423, the bobbin thread goes counter-clockwise and drops into the tension discs, and goes all the back until it falls into the space left of the silver stitch finger. Make sure take up level raised all the way up! Then pull the needle thread toward you until bobbin thread comes all the way up. If you start sewing and you actually can SEE the bobbin thread laying across the bobbin, STOP and tethered because that would mean your thread did not slide all the back behind the silver stitch finger--however, I assure you, if you go one step at a time, you did it correctly! You will be smiling in no time! Why? The felt helps to make the bobbin rest in the correct position to keep it from jumping out of the groove. I hope this helps you.

Just got the sewing machine last night - read the manual, etc - the tension of the bobbin is way off. tried every solution mentioned, but its still not working


are you adjusting the little screw on the tension spring on the bobbin case by minute amounts each time? Only turn it a quarter turn each time you change it.

If you do the dangle test, (suspend the bobbin by the thread tail) the bobbin case and bobbin should stay still in the air, but a gentle tug on the case should release thread. Adjust the little screw with the mini screwdriver in your kit until you get it to this point. turn it left to loosen and right to tighten.

Also check that the bobbin is in the bobbin case the right way, page 12 of your manual should show this. Yout want the bobbin to turn anticlockwise when you pull the thread tail. Then load it into the shuttle using the latch on the bobbin case to secure it.

It is possible that the tension spring itself is faulty in which case you can buy a new bobbin case for the machine from the local machine shop, or http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/brother-lx-3125-parts.aspx
