Loose bobbin case in singer 9018

The bobbin case feels quite secure when I have positioned and locked it in place following instruction manual but as soon as I try to sew it comes loose again.

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!

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.

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

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.

How to replace bobbin assembly correctly on my singer merritt 4530 ? the threads been getting caught all around the bobbin assembly.


Yes, it should, and you might want to download your user's manual free at the Singer website, because replacing the bobbin case is pictured there.on page 41, along with instructions.

However, I can tell you that the feed dog plate with the two screws in is DESIGNED to be removed, and must be removed to get the bobbin case back in. It's important that you follow the instructions; the case must be inserted correctly so that it does NOT move, and make sure that it sits evenly in the bobbin basket (the thing that holds the bobbin case. While you are at it, you might want to also clean the basket, using q-tips with a drop of ONLY sewing machine oil on the cotton, making sure you also get under the lip before you put the bobbin case back in.

How to remove the bobbin case


Go back to the manual and make sure you are following instructions for removal first. (Here is a link if you don't have the manual
http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals ). Second, it could be that there is a ball of knotted thread from the bobbin holding it all down. If that is the case, trim any loose threads away and keep the upper thread out of the bobbin. If the machine has seized up, though, you will probably have to take it to a professional.

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.
