Please help.

I have only a cheap one (VX-1100), but when this is happening on mine, the stop-motion knob isn't fully engaged with the balance wheel. They are held together by one being tightened to the other for sewing, loosened for bobbin winding. Michael

I have a Singer 99-13 with knee control. I wound bobbins but can't get it to sew. Is there something that turns it over to sewing? Thanks. Karen


On the 99-13, you wind the bobbin with the balance wheel in the stop motion position. Thus during bobbin winding, the needle mechanism is disconnected from the rest of the machine. You probably need to tighten the set screw on the balance wheel. The screw is in the center of the balance wheel on the right hand side of the sewing machine. Hold the balance wheel while you turn the screw away from yourself. (You hold the balance wheel and turn the screw over towards you for winding.)

The manual for the 99-13 is available from Singer on their manuals page: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/9d4377811af9ffbbaa1b8efd50ea962c142a66d9.pdf . Look at figure 5 on page 7 (page 4 of the PDF) and then page 10-11 (page 6 of the PDF) for the bobbin winding directions.

I hope this helps.

The Balance Wheel and the Clutch Release knob will not tighten together again after filling a bobbin. How do I fix this?


THERE IS A SMALL SCREW AT THE MIDDLE KNOB ON THE HAND WHEEL THAT YOU NEED TO LOOSEN. AFTER THAT TIGHTEN THE HAND WHEEL KNOB JUST AS YOU WOULD WHEN YOU ARE GOING TO SEW. NOW, TIGHTEN THE SMALL SCREW. YOUR MACHINE SHOULD BE OK FOR SEWING AND YOUR BOBBIN WINDING.

Unlock brothers LS2125i sewing machine


Is the thread caught in gear in top of machine causing it to bind. If you refilled bobbin did the gear switch back completely or you have lost an o ring in bobbin rewind.

I have an older Brothers Sewing machine, to thread the bobbin you need to turn the handle to open I up. After doing this you need to tighten it back up so you can sew again. This is where I am havin

Brother VX1435, needle won't move


some machines when the bobbin winder is engaged will not sew, do you
have to disengage the center wheel in the handwheel to wind a bobbin?
or do you have to just move the bobbin winder spindle to the right to
wind the bobbin?
do you have a manual for the machine?

Do you have a stitch pattern chosen? Is it set for winding the bobbin? Check your manual, if you cannot find it download one for free, at brother-usa.com

Threading bobbin on singer stylist 522


To wind a bobbin put the cotton reel on the top pin, take the thread to the left and round the little wheel and back to the bobbin that should be on the winder, wind the thread round a few times to take a grip, release the stop motion in the balance wheel, turn the winder button so the winder moves to the balance wheel and press on the foot control slowly.
When you put the bobbin in the bobbin case make sure it turns anti clockwise.

Machine No. K1831(256) No.28 how do you set up the stop motion wheel to wind bobbins. It either winds bobbins whilst sewing or just free wheels. I think there must be a way of adjusting this action....
