Question about Singer Featherweight 140Q

3 Answers

Problem with winding thread onto the bobbin (small free- arm Singer 100 sewing machine). Once bobbin winder shaft is pushed to the right nothing happens-bobbin rod does not start turning so I cannot wind the thread onto the bobbin. It has worked very well for a number of years. Thank you.

    Hi



    I also have a bobbin winding problem. I have a Singer 100 compact free arm sewing machine and can't get the bobbin to wind. The machine sews perfectly well but the bobbin winder doesn't turn. I have checked the manual and I am definitely doing everything right so not sure what to do now.



    I have checked the winder and am unable to turn it manually and have also checked the white plastic washer on the bobbin winder and it is not worn.



    Any suggestions gratefully received.

First you must make sure the winder shaft is turning by moving it to the right a little and see if you can turn it by hand.
If it is turning ok then there is a rubber ring on the other end of the winder shaft and it should come in contact with the drive which turnes it ,if it is worn it might need a new rubber.

    The rubber ring is oiled , not dry. It is coming into contact with the gear but the rubber wheel is not spinning.

    The rubber ring MUST NOT have ANY oil on it or it won't get traction.

Put a drop of oil on the bobbin winder shaft, then turn the bobbin winder by hand until it is free running, but don't get ANY on the rubber ring.

I have Singer 7285QPatchwork when I try to wind a bobbin E2 error code comes up. I also notice the Thread Take-up continues to go up & down when I try to wind bobbin. HELP.


Did you push the bobbin winder shaft all the way to the right? You should feel/hear a click. You should also see 2 Cs (one backwards) in the LCD screen. Since the thread take-up lever is moving, I suspect the sewing machine isn't in the bobbin winding mode. Make sure that you are using a Class 15 J bobbin and have correctly redone the threading for the bobbin winding option.

If the bobbin winder shaft doesn't move easily or click into place, you may need to take the machine for service. The winding lever position switch/sensor or another part may be damaged inside the machine.

I hope this helps.

Can't figure out how to fill the bobbin


hi Beverly.
you have not said what make and model.
but try this.
Always wind the bobbin before threading the machine and needle.
  1. Place spool of thread on spool pin.
  2. Slide spool pin holder/cap firmly over rim of spool to prevent thread from tangling.
  3. Push bobbin winder pin to far left if it is not already there.

Trying to wind the bobbin on my singer 6268 but the thread keeps winding under the bobbin. What am I doing wrong?


if the bobbin winder is driven of the end of the machine then you may have to guide the thread as it winds onto the bobbin
if you are allowing the thread to come directly from the reel and it is not in line to the bobbin then what you have is what will happen

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 fill a bobbin on Virtuosa 150


Put the thread spool on the vertical spool holder with a sponge pad underneath. Wind the thread off the spool and through the small wire thread guide next to the spool holder. Take the thread across the top of the sewing arm to the tension unit just next to the gap in the case through which the thread is normally threaded - the tension unit looks like the top of a shiny screw without the slots in it. Wind the thread in a clockwise direction around the tension unit once and pull the thread with a bit of tension until it slips into the sprung gap around the underside of the shiny part. Slip the end of the thread through one of the holes in the bobbin and, preferably, wind a few turns on, then push the bobbin onto the bobbin winder shaft at the right-hand end of the top of the machine. Turn the bobbin clockwise by hand a few more times to make sure the thread is 'locked' onto the bobbin and then just push the lever adjacent to the bobbin winder to the left. To wind the bobbin, you then press the foot controller and either stop when you've got enough thread on the bobbin or let it stop automatically when full. Make sure you dont go so fast that the spool rattles-around on the spool holder otherwise this could spoil the way the bobbin gets filled.

Viking sewing machine 545 bobbin stuck on rewind


It should just pull off of the winder shaft. There is a small spring that sticks out from the shaft to hold the bobbin in place (at least on my wife's Viking which is a different model number than yours). Is there a release button somewhere near?

Wind the Bobbin
For the usual jobs, it is the best to use a medium sized thread.
2. Disengage the flywheel by unscrewing the coupling knob as far as it will go.

3. Place the bobbin on the bobbin winder, and push the bobbin winder to the right.

4. Pull out one of the spool pins and place the spool of thread on it.

5. Pass the thread through the bobbin winder tension discs, as indicated.

6. Wind the end of the thread around the bobbin by hand, in the direction indicated.

7. Wind the bobbin, at a medium speed by pressing lightly with a finger on the spool so as to stretch the thread better and thus fill the bobbin to a maximum. The full bobbin stops automatically.

8. Re-engage the flywheel by tightening the coupling knob.

9. Cut the thread and remove the bobbin from the bobbin winder by pushing the latter to the left.

Kenmore Sewing Machine model # c877.15


I have a Kenmore as well ,I hope that this will work for you ,too bad that I don't live close to you otherwise I would give a hand. This is the way I fill the bobbin on mine. Mine is located on the top right ,I put the thread into the bobbin hole leaving a small piece of thread hanging for me to hold when I begin the winding, I pull the wheele out to stop the needle from moving while winding, when I am done just push it back in .I run the thread from the spool into the top left it looks like a U turn with a screw go around that without winding just pull it into the bobbin hole. press the foot control and it will begin winding .
