Hi. Find the end of the thread and pull it out, off of the bobbin a couple of inches. Hold the bobbin with the thread coming off of the top so that if you rotated the bobbin counter clockwise it would wind the thread onto the bobbin. Now take the bobbin case in your left hand with the stem in the center of the case facing toward you. Stick the bobbin into the bobbin case and, taking the end of the thread, pull it to your left while pushing back on it somewhat until the thread enters the slot in the bobbin case. Pull the thread so that it slips under the thread tension spring, pull a little more out, then reinsert the bobbin case until it is seated all the way in the hook. It will probably have a catch that snaps in place.

I would go to Google or IE and paste the question in their search box. You should get several opinions.

Bobbin is jamed, will not feed.


Hi. Sounds like you will first of all need to un-jam the bobbin. Is there a bobbin case involved? Perhaps it is the hook that is not moving? Start by unplugging your machine, then cut away any thread that is tangled or making a "birds nest" in the bobbin area. Use embroidery scissors or a razor blade, removing the cut off pieces as you do with a tweezer. As the tangle is removed, the bobbin / bobbin case should start to free-up. Once you can pull the bobbin out, clean out all of the remaining thread and strip the bobbin. When putting a fresh bobbin in, make sure the tail exits the bobbin case / hook through the slot and under the tension.

I bought a singer lockstitch 2000 at a yard sale. it came without an instruction manual and i cannot figure out how to load the bobbin correctly


Hi. I'm not familiar with your model, but in most cases, one would set the bobbin into the bobbin case, pulling the tail through the tension and letting a couple of inches of thread hang out. Insert bobbin case and bobbin together as one unit, with the bobbin on the inner side towards the hook. It should snap into place only one way and should require very little effort.

Wife has Kenmore 385.12314. Regular use. Normally cleaned and oiled. Needle goes down, but bobbin thread doesn't catch. Needle at bottom of stroke and "half moon" is on top, needle...


Make sure the needle is in the machine correctly- all theway up into the needle bar, make sure that it is threaded correctly, etc. Ifthis all checks out ok, take the bobbin case out of the machine. There are twoears on either side of the bobbin case- turn the left one to the left and theright one to the right. Remove the silver ring, and inspect the piece of metalthat the ring came off of (looks like a circle with the top cut off). You haveto locate the hook which is the piece that looks like a half moon inside thebig round metal piece. Locate the tip of it, turn the hand wheel toward youuntil the needle is in the lowest position, at this point the tip of the hookshould be flush with top of the left side of the cut off circle. If this is notso, your machine needs to be re-timed. If that is the case, I would need to seea picture of the bottom of the machine so that I am able to determine whatneeds adjusting. Make sure you're turning the hand wheel in the proper direction-- the proper direction isthe one that will feed fabric forward under the presser foot.

Make sure the needle is facing in the correct direction -- stitches don't form,or skip badly when the needle is turned around.

Put the bobbin in the bobbin case (right way around) leaving a 2-3" tail.

Thread the top of the machine correctly, leaving a 3-4" tail afterthreading the needle.

Hang on to the end of the upper thread, and use the hand wheel to drop theneedle... continue to turn the hand wheel to raise the needle. Pull on the endof the needle thread and a loop of bobbin thread should come up.

Hold BOTH threads behind the presser foot when starting a seam to preventthread jams.
Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

I amhaving trouble with the thread brahing and I don;t know if it is the tension. Which way should the pobbing turn right or left and how do you set the tension For my Singer sewing machine


Check the upper threading and make sure it is threaded correctly. When you pull on the thread before it goes through the needle does it give a bit or does it break? If it is breaking when you pull then the tension is way too tight or it is threaded incorrectly. Make sure it isn't looped around some guide along the line too.

For the bobbin thread... when it is in the bobbin case outside of the machine dangle it by the thread. It should hang there until you flick your wrist a bit, which should cause some thread to release and drop the bobbin down towards the floor a bit. (If it just pulls out right to the floor it is too loose). Most bobbin tension is tightened by a small screw on the bobbin case near where the thread comes though. Breaking thread would not be from the bobbin thread being too loose. Too loose would cause looping on top side of the stitch not breakage.

Make sure the bobbin is in correctly. You should feel and hear a slight "click" when the bobbin goes in correctly.

I have lost my sewing machine bobbin case


Hi, little ducke,

Can't do much sewing without a bobbin case!

I've had a difficult time finding information on your particular model. The best website I could find has pictures of the few different styles of bobbin case in Janome machines. I think if you look at the pics, you'ld be able to pick out the one for you.  Here's the website: http://sewingstyle.com/Janome-Sewing-Bobbin-Cases.html

I hope this helps. If it does, please place a vote or comment for me. Thanks,

My Kenmore sewing machine timing has gotten off. I am sewing a big upholstery project and it starting bunching thread from the bobbin. The thread is so heavy that I had to put some pressure just to get...


Hello

Disassemble your bobbin case which is realy quite easy, clean thoroughly with a brush and air, paying particular attention to any rust that may have formed, and any thread that may have weazeled it's way into small but very incremental areas of your case.

Make sure your needle is not in backwards.The rounded side should be on the outside

. If threading is correct and your tension is properly adjusted , then check the hook for scratches. If you have ever hit the hook with a needle, it will be scarred and will catch the thread every time the upper thread passes around the bobbin case. the hook is the sharp point on the shuttle that holds the bobbin case. If it is scratched, polish it smooth with VERY fine sand paper

Make sure that your thread arm that rises and falls, constantly having tension running through it and that it is in fact staying in place.

Alternate between the metal and plastic bobbins - sometimes the plastic bobbins tend to chip

Stiches are loose in the bottom side of the cloth,if i change the bobbin case....will it help? I can understand that tension of thread is the problem.....but don't know what to do


the case the bobbin goes into has a little spring on its side .. the spring has one or two screws. one screw adjusts tension on the spring .. the bobbin thread goes under that spring when it is properly threaded .. if the screw is loose or missing then replace the screw or tighten it a little so that thread pulled thru the bobbin case spring has a bit of drag .. if its too loose then you can tighten the screw a bit more ... if you tighten it too much then it will pull the top thread thru to the bottom .. if your adjustment screw or spring is missing then you can replace the bobbin holder .. the new one should have the spring in place and be properly tightened .. . often the adjustment screw is just loose or the thread is not positioned correctly in the bobbin case slot. .
