Hand Wheel In the instruction manual it explains how to draw up the bobbin thread on page 10. It says to turn the hand wheel slowly towards me until the needle goes down then comes up again. My needle is not moving at all when I move the hand wheel. Its as if the hand wheel has no purpose at all. How can i fix this?

There is a smaller wheel in the center of the big wheel. This has to be tightened in order for the needle to operate. This smaller wheel is needing to be in the loosened state to wind the bobbin. The needle should not go up & down then. Just hold the outside wheel & tighten the inner wheel. This should solve your problem. Hey, just wondering if I could possibly get a copy of your manual, as I lost mine for this model. I would really appreciate it! My email is [email protected] Thanks & Good Luck

How to wind a bobbin singer merrit 3130

To wind a bobbin on the 3130, first raise the presser foot and bring the needle to the highest point in its travel cycle. Next hold the outside of the hand wheel with one hand. While holding the outside of the hand wheel, turn the knob inside the hand wheel towards yourself (counter-clockwise if you face the right side of the sewing machine). Make sure that the spool of thread is on the spool pin with the spool's thread retaining notch to the right. Put the appropriate spool holder on the spool pin. Snap the thread into the thread guide in to the left of the spool holder. Lift the top cover to expose the bobbin winding mechanism. Snap the thread into the bobbin winder tension disc by wrapping it around the front of the disc and then bringing it back towards the bobbin winding spindle. The bobbin winder tension disc is to the left of the top cover. Put the thread through the hole in the bobbin from the center of the bobbin. Keep the hole up and put the bobbin on the spindle. Push the spindle to the right. Hold the thread above the bobbin and start the machine. After a few rotations, you can let go and cut this part of thread. Restart the sewing machine and let it finish winding the bobbin. Once the bobbin is full, move the spindle to the left and remove the bobbin from the spindle. Cut the spool thread to release the bobbin to put it in the bobbin case. Hold the hand wheel and turn the inner knob away from yourself.

Singer has most of their manuals available here: https://www.singer.com/support . The current link to the Merrit 3130 manual is https://res.cloudinary.com/singer-sewing/image/upload/fl_attachment/Singer-Website-Library/outdated_product/SINGER_244_288_588_875_972_974_1195_3130_3140_3145_and_3150_Sewing_Machines.pdf .See page 23 (page 25 of the PDF) for the pictures for winding a bobbin.

I hope this helps.

How do you remove thread caught in hand wheel in babylock?

Take a good look in your manual and see how to clean and oil you machine. Now, take a new paint 2" brush(from Dollar store) and really brush that thread, when you get a little tail slowly pull it while turning the handwheel slowly is the key. Use tweezers if you need too. Keep going until you have no more thread, remove bobbin and cut the thread attached to the machine.

Singer 3232 machine was sewing fine now motor runs but needle does not move up and down

Check if the machine is in the bobbin winding mode. To wind the bobbin, the bobbin spindle has to be moved to the right. (The hand wheel will not turn if the bobbin spindle is in this position.) If it is, move the spindle to the left.

If the hand wheel turns, then check for a thread jam. Remove the top thread and take out the bobbin case. Gently turn the hand wheel forward and backwards until the thread comes free of the hook in the bobbin race. Follow this by cleaning any lint from the bobbin race of the sewing machine.

The last possibility is that the belt has failed. This belt transfers the energy from the motor to the needle bar. One source of the belt is http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/motor-belt-singer-007158xxl5.aspx . You can find YouTube videos on changing the belt. There are other parts that transfer the forces form the belt to the needle bar. However, I suggest you find a good sewing machine mechanic if any of these parts fail.

The manual has good pictures of the bobbin spindle on page 11 (page 18 of the PDF). Singer has the manual on their support page: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/e06cb85928ace9753f1a7124f4a2df6168ffecf0.pdf .

How to thread the bobbin on a singer electronic 4562?

Do you need to wind the bobbin? If you just need put in the bobbin, make sure that the needle is in the highest position and that the presser foot is up. Slide open the cover by moving it towards you. Pull about 4" of thread from the bobbin and hold the bobbin such that the thread is coming off in a counter-clockwise direction. Put the bobbin into the bobbin case and secure the thread in the notch near the center bottom of the bobbin case. Next guide the thread into the notch to the left (near 7 on an analog clock). Hold onto the thread and slide the cover closed. To bring up the thread, make sure that the needle is threaded as well. Turn the hand wheel slowly towards you while you hold the needle thread with your left hand. Turn the wheel until the needle comes back out of the needle plate. Pull gently on the needle thread. You should see a loop of thread around the needle thread. Gently untangle this loop until you get to the end of the bobbin thread. Pull the needle thread through the opening on the left side of the presser foot. Then pull both threads to the back of the machine.

Most Singer sewing machines are available here: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual for the 4562 is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/435_5_8_10_16_22_dial.pdf . The details and images for winding the bobbin is on page 13. Inserting the bobbin and raising the bobbin thread is on pages 15-16.

I hope this helps.

How do I add thread to the bobbin

The small box you will turn towards you while you hold the big handwheel. It might me very tight but it isn't going to break by turning hard. Tighten the small screw before you begin. When it is loose you can wind your bobbin.

How do I add thread to the bobbin on Singer sewing machine 3114?

Your repair shop will have to fix the handwheel, but you can still wind your bobbin. UNTHREAD the machine completely, and take the needle out. Set up your thread to wind the bobbin, and push the winder over until it clicks. Wind your bobbin. I don't have a picture of your model; this is just standard.

HOW TO I WIND BOBBIN ON SINGER 347

If you mean the Singer Style Mate 347, open the face plate and remove the old bobbin. Then, the first step is to hold the hand wheel and loosen the stop-motion screw inside the hand wheel. (Keep the hand wheel from turning with one hand and turn the stop-motion screw towards the front of the machine.) Place your empty bobbin (hole away from the machine) on the spindle near the bobbin winder switch. Feed the thread from the spool on the spool pin through the eyelet on the top of the machine (near the top thread take up) and then down to and around the bobbin tension disc below the on-off power switch. Pass the thread through from the inside of the bobbin to the outside of the bobbin. Move the bobbin winder switch to On and hold onto the end of the thread. Start the machine and let a few winds get placed on the bobbin then stop for a minute. Cut the thread near the bobbin. Restart and continue winding more thread onto the bobbin until you have enough thread or the bobbin is full (it will stop automatically). Move the bobbin winder switch to off and tighten the stop-motion screw.

For pictures, see pages 6-7 in the manual. It's available as a PDF here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/9b8c1ca7584c2bea7837ca4bf5338af7f1b5380e.pdf . (These are pages 8-9 of the PDF.)

I hope this helps.

The thread hangs up inside the bobbin holder

A jammed machine is caused by thread being caught in the hook. Remove the upper thread and the bobbin case, turn the hand wheel towards you (counterclockwise) by hand and remove any thread in the bobbin case area. *Always turn the hand wheel towards you. Turning the hand wheel away from you (clockwise) can cause the machines timing to become unaligned and jam your machine. Also, always make sure the presser foot is in the down position before you start sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will jam your machine in the bobbin case.

Threading the Bobbin

Place the bobbin in the bobbin case making sure the thread feeds clockwise. Draw the thread through the slot on the case. Continue to draw under the tension spring and through the opening pulling out about 6" of thread. Hold the latch open, position the bobbin case into the suttle and release the latch. THe case should lock into place when the latch is relaeased.

With the top thread, hold out about 5" to the left. While holding on tot he top thread, turn the hand wheel toward you and you should see a loop at the feed dogs. grab the two thread and bring them behind the presser foot.
