SOURCE: Bobbin won't wind

I have checked the gears underneath and see no missing teeth for the bobbin part. The bobbin "seat" does raise, but does not engage. Thanks

SOURCE: Bobbin Case

I'm having a similar problem today. I took out the bobbin case and when I went to put it back in, the whole system locks up. I've tired cleaning, changing needle taking the metal plate and piece that holds bobbin case out and put it all back in after cleaning. Nothing. My symptom is I can't get a complete stitch, the needle goes down, the whole deal acts like it will work and as soon as the arm of the bobbin case gets to 8 o' clock on the gears, It jams and won't hardly move. I cannot pull the bobbin case out easily after this. Perhaps there is someone out there that can help us!

SOURCE: Singer 9410 Bobbin

Update:  Today I took my machine in to get serviced - they replaced the metal bobbin I was using with a plastic one, that was a little less rattley inside the bobbin case, replaced the needle with a new, universal one, and changed out the thread with something a little higher quality.  They also adjusted the spring holding the bobbin case slightly, and now it seems to work fine.  I'm not sure how long it will last, but for now I'm good.

SOURCE: bobbin case retainer popping out on Singer Touch & Sew 625

Take the bobbin case out. Then when you go to put it in, realize there are 2 ways to get it. You have found one way. The other way is first look in the the slot with a flashlight before you insert it. There is a flat piece of metal the bracket needs to be slid under as it is inserted. This acts like a spring making it tight

I have a singer 600E. When I put the bobbin case back in place and returned the black metal position piece to the left. Now it will not hold bobbin case in place. Please help.


Please download the user's manual for your machine free at the Singer site, under support. On page 50, it shows you how to remove and replace the bobbin case. I have a feeling that it's not quite in place, and that's easy to do. Ask me how I know.

How to thread the bobbin of a singer 90s


First make sure that the needle is fully up (use the hand-wheel). Move the bobbin cover release button to the right and lift the bobbin cover out of the way. Remove the current bobbin, if needed. Hold the new, full bobbin so that the thread comes off the bobbin counter-clockwise when you pull the thread. Place the bobbin into the bobbin case. Pull the thread through the slot near the bottom of the case and to the left. Place a finger on top of the bobbin. Next bring the thread left further towards the back of the bobbin case until it stops in the second slot (near the 8 o'clock position if you compare the position to a 12-hour analog clock). Pull the thread back through the groove in the cover plate until it is cut by the thread cutter at the top left of the cover plate. (The thread will turn a "corner" to the cutter.) Replace the bobbin cover.

Singer has the manual for most of their sewing machines here: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual for the 90S is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/26e7243ab52aaed42904377fea7b090541eb0c9b.pdf . See pages 16-17 (page 18 in the PDF for the English description) and pictures that may be better than the verbal description.

I hope this helps.

Could be that your bobbin thread is wound too tightly and having a problem pulling thread from it. Try setting the pressure on bobbin a bit less and that may cure it.

The bobbin case on my t&s 758 keeps slipping. HELP! :)


make sure when you put the bobbin case in that the needle is all the way up. If it is down and in the way of the bobbing case, the case won't lock in place securely.

I have a Singer model 4562 T sewing machine, and threading the bobbin, the bobbin case just kind of popped out. I've tried just sliding it back in, but no matter which way I put it in it doesn't seem to...


The bobbin case is designed to be removed for cleaning. Take off the needle plate if it is still on the sewing machine. Make sure that the needle and presser foot are fully up. Guide the forked end of the bobbin case under the feed (more or less centered). Then pull the bobbin case under the rim of the position plate. Pull on the side opposite the forked end of the bobbin case. With a small screw driver, turn the lever (at about 10 o'clock on a 12-hour analog clock) towards you. This will lock the bobbin case into place. Make sure that the bobbin case isn't locked too tightly. It still needs to move slightly as the bobbin turns and the needle comes through that plate.

Replace the needle plate and lock it down. Then insert the bobbin and close the slide plate. The manual shows the procedure to remove and replace the bobbin case on the 4562 on page 39. Singer has the manual on the support page: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/435_5_8_10_16_22_dial.pdf .

I hope this helps.

(I hope that the locking lever hasn't broken. That may require a service person to solve the problem. I'm not entirely sure where that lever is connected to the machine. Some Singer part diagrams are here: http://www.singerco.com/support/replacement-parts-chart . The 4562 may use the same diagram as the 4572, http://parts.singerco.com/CPpartCharts/4_4999/4572.pdf .)

Seat the bobbin & adjust tension on Singer 9018


basic tension instructions apply...bottom tension should be moderate, thread should pass when holding thread and dangle the case. Top tension should pull bottom thread JUST to the top side of fabric. thread bobbin case counter clockwise.

Can't get the bobbin case back in on my singer hd 110. It came out on it's own. The manual is not very helpful.


If this is a vertical/metal bobbin case; raise the needle to it's highest position. This will position the shuttle to accept the bobbin case.

If the bobbin case has a lever on the back, lift it and hold it open as you place the bobbin case back into the shuttle. It should click into place.

Try inserting the bobbin in the reverse direction. Most machines take a bobbin clockwise or counterclockwise and it can make a difference. Also try a new needle, a bad needle is often the problem believe it or not.
