Question about Singer 5050 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I took my bobbin and bibbin case out of my singer 5050 and now when I try to insert the bobbin case back in the machine, it keeps popping up. I have bought a new bobbin case and am still having the same problem!
Have you tried a new bobbin, some machines only take certain bobbins..

Make sure the bobbin case sets sort of on top and not under the ridge of the metal ring. There is a small latch on the upper left of the bobbin case. It is metal. rotate the latch to cover the bobbin case and this should stabilize the case without making it immobile

there may be uneeded friction occuring. are you sure you inserted it correctly? sorry. photos aren;t appearing. but it may be that it is the wrong type or in the wrong place. do some trial and error and fit it into different positions on the bobbin runner

Usually when this happens the bobbin is in wrong, replace it make sure the thread is going out the right way, make sure there is no lint or small pieces of thread around or underneath the bobbin area. Make sure you thread it with the foot up. Also make sure you are usng the right bobbin for the machine. They can easy get mxed up.

From what I gather on other sites, your thread has to be threaded under tension.... You have to make sure you hear a click when your bringing your thread down to the bottom of the "arm". Also, I thought the bobbin case was rather loosely held in its place, I adjusted this by unscrewing the black plate and moving it over just a smidge. The bobbin is supposed to have some wiggle room, but it kept popping up and making the tiny adjustment seems to have done the trick....for now...

When you insert the bobbin case, make sure the "knub" on the bobbin case (#1) is just to the left of the position finger bracket (#2). It should sit in there nicely and you should be able to spin the hand wheel freely.
Let me know if you need more help,
