There are dozens of different spool pins, if you want the right one, bring the machine to any sewing machine repair shop, spool pins cost 1-2 dollars.

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.

The upper part of the right spool pin broke off. I ordered a new pin but am unable to remove the old one to replace it. How do you remove the spool pin?

Depends on your machine brand and model. Some pins simply unscrew and others pull out. Probably best to look at the replacement pin you purchased.

I don't see my model of sewing machine in the list of machines, it's Model 412N, for which I need a spool pin. Do you have one?

Your model number suggests that your machine is a Shark Euro Pro. If this is correct, you can contact customer service for Euro Pro products at this web address:
There is also a phone number in the instructions and a Live Chat feature during the week. This customer service contact may need to transfer you to a specific department for your needed part.

If you are not successful in getting the part direct from Euro Pro, you can also check with and most local sewing machine stores. There are often generic parts that fit many different models and brands.

I have a brother xl5012 and would like to change the spool pin..not sure if its broken? the one on top is silver and the spare is plastic..not sure what to do..the manual has no answers.. thank you

On most machines, the spool pin simply screws into a threaded hole. If it was welded on or attached in some other permanent way, changing it may need a service visit. Brother has one of the very best service departments of any company I know. But try to unscrew the old one.. it might be stuck, a drop of penetrating oil, or maybe some pliers, might assist. If it comes out, a new one should screw in easily enough, so long as it matches the size of the hole and the threading.

Problem with spool pin


There are screws holding the top housing onto the machine. (The top housing is where the spool pin slid into). remove the screws on the top housing and pull the top housing up off of the machine. You will be able to reposition the spool pin to where it supposed to be. put the top housing back on and reinstall the screws.

Bobbon thread is too losse /thread breaks no

Clean out the bobbin area.

Thread the machine with the presser foot up. This opens the tension so the thread can enter. Threading with the foot down closes the tension and the thread cannot enter as it should. When you sew, the top thread is loose and cannot properly connect with the bobbin thread to form a tight stitch. The stitching does not hold and pulls right out.

Thread breakage - top thread? Check the thread spool to be sure there aren't any nicks to catch the thread.

When the thread breaks, check the spool pin to see if the thread is unwinding too fast and wrapping around the pin. Thread nets can help stop this. You can find them at sewing machine dealers.

Upper thread breaks ''inside''. Then thread pulls tightly. Must be re-threaded to sew.

Check the spool to make sure there isn't a nick in the cap where the thread can catch. If there is it can be smoothed with an emery board, or just turn the spool so the the thread feeds from the opposite end of the spool.

If the thread is unwinding too fast and pooling around the spool pin, you can use a thread net to help stop this.

Thread nets come in a long tube and you cut them to size. They can be found with machine embroidery supplies or at a dealer.

Lost Spool pin and cap for QuikStitch SP-402

Welcome to FixYa. If you have a spool stand, that might work as long as you can thread the machine properly (give it a try!). When the thread is placed on the machine's spool pin, the spool cap keeps the thread in place and helps the thread unwind evenly - so if you are using a spool pin, you really do need a spool cap.

If the spool stand works, you are good to go. If you need to order replacement parts, I've provided a link the manufacturer's website. From there, you can contact customer support and find out if parts are available. If you can't order replacement parts, ask customer service if the machine is compatible with another brand. Another option would be to buy a spool pin and cap at a sewing machine dealer. Take the machine with you and and make sure the parts fit before you buy them.

Here's the link to the site I mentioned:

Thanks for stopping by. If you have an extra minute, feel free to rate my solution. I'm eager to improve my solutions if they are not helpful. If you have further questions or would like to consult with another FixYa expert, just leave a comment and I'll do what I can to resolve your problem.
