Bobbin winder is in operation mode

I've made some new bobbin last night.
When i tried to used my machine this morning to do some embroidery project, as soon as i start, i get the following error: "bobbin winder is in operation mode".

I tried closing the software, turning off the machine, rebooting my computer, thread another bobbin, the bobbin winder is at the left position, nothing work, as soon as i try starting the embroidery project, i does a few stitches, then starts beeping with the same error message, bobbin winder is in operation.

What can i do to fix this

Ive done that already, didnt change anything.
My husband figured it out... It turns out that the metal pin used to keep the bobbin in place while its spinning was stuck and wasnt out completly, making the machine think there was a bobbin on the winder even if there wasnt.

Try to change the bobbin winder position from left to the right and back again, probably it hasn't moved exactly to the proper position.
Check the version of the software and machine firmware under menu Help->About Futura. If you do not have the latest ones, you can update them through Live Update in the same submenu.

I wound my bobbin on my model 1100, pulled it out, treaded the machine, and cannot stop the bobbin filler from turning. Now the machine does not want to sew. Help.

Sounds like the bobbin winder activator is stuck. As long as the bobbin winder is activated, your machine will not sew since that is a safety function.

You might try flipping the bobbin winder activator back and forth and see if that releases it--or try winding some other bobbins. If it will not release, then you may need to take the machine for service.

If the bobbin winder is worn or defective, you can look at purchasing a stand-alone bobbin winder (called "Sidewinder") available online through Amazon, JoAnn's, etc. for about $30. It saves wear-n-tear on your machine plus allows you to quickly wind multiple bobbins without unthreading the machine. You can get battery operated or one that also has an AC cord.

Bobbin winder screw broken, how to replace?

Until you can get your bobbin winder repaired, I'd suggest picking up a bobbin winder at your local fabric store. The last time I noticed, they cost about $30. Many sewists prefer to use this little accessory inside of wearing out the bobbin winder on their sewing machine. Also, if you more than one thread cone, you can rewind bobbins without unthreading your sewing machine.

Machine embroidery needle changes position

truthfully I think their something wrong with the computer in the machine because
the bobbin locked up. sometimes when a sewing machine jams it can make
the machine jump time.
but the needle moved positions, some part of the machine is changed during the
jam up, even tho you reset it.
embroidery machine are expensive, my suggestion is to have the machine checked

When i sew the bobbinbinds up underneath plate and stops

What are you doing when this happens, embroidery or sewing? Also are you creating a nest, or does the bobbin not move freely?

Check to see that the bobbin is not over wound. The thread should not touch the sides of the bobbin case. This can happen if the bobbin adjustment, the white dial adjacent to the bobbin winder, has been turned and the bobbin winder kicks off too late.

I have a singer 7422. I am trying to wind the bobbin. It should be the easiest part and last time it was. Now when I turn it on nothing happens. I have the manual in front of me and have checked and...

To clarify, take the thread from the spool, through that little clip, loop it around the little metal button piece at the top (should have a diagram on top of the machine), then through one of the tiny holes in the upper side of a bobbin. Place the bobbin on the vertical bobbin winder pin/rod on top of the machine then be sure to snap that pin/rod all the way to the right to engage motor. Then try. Most of the time people forget to push the bobbin winder pin/rod to the right which leaves the machine in sewing mode rather than in bobbin winding mode. Easy mistake. ;)

In embroidery mode, you have to send a design to the machine before the bobbin winder will work.
