Why does display read "WINDING BOBBIN" and won't clear?

I'm unable to use zigzag stitch. The bobbin winder is in the correct position, the machine threaded properly. Does anyone have advice on how to fix this? Thank you much!

Skipping right side stitch on a zigzag stitch, so when i am running a zigzag stitch when the needle goes through the fabric and comes back up it pulls the stitch back with it ??


check your bobbin and is the needle good and sharp and the proper length.make sure its not bentthe tiniest defectt n a needle can mess up any stitch.
how does it work on regular stitching.
most problems with machines involve.bad needles incorrect threading of bobbin or spool,dirty bobbin,incorrect needle.
it sounds like the needle isnt catching the bobbin thread.
hope this helps

Why won't the bobbin winder work


Difficult to diagnose without knowing the make/model and the symptoms. Best advice is to consult the owner's manual.

Make sure the handwheel center cap is loosened before winding the bobbin. Also, snap the lever toward the bobbin to activate the bobbin winder. Confirm that the correct sequence is followed in threading from the spool to the bobbin winder.

If you are unable to get the bobbin winder to work, for ~$25 you can pick up a stand-alone bobbin winder from the local fabric store (JoAnns or Hancocks) or even online (Amazon.com).

Why is my singer 9015 skipping stitches, particularly on zig zag setting???


There are several possibilities for skipped stitches. A needle that is dull or bent; using a ball point needle when a sharp should be used, such as a woven fabric, the needle is not all the way up in the needle clamp; the needle was not inserted with the flat side in the correct position (unless your bobbin case is on the side of the machine, that's toward the back), or the top thread and or bobbin thread is not threaded correctly.

I cannot get tight tension on zigzag underneath stitch on my singer 3221


There are a couple of things to check. First, did you thread with the presser foot UP, so that proper tension is applied to the upper thread? Is your bobbin correctly inserted, and is your bobbin case inserted evenly and correctly? Review your user's manual--if you don't have it, you can download it free at the Singer website.

If you have done these things, you may need to adjust your bobbin tension. First, run a line of straight and then zigzag stitches on a scrap of fabric and take a look. It helps to have two different colors of thread, with the fabric a third color. If one side of the zigzag looks fine and the other side looks like "chicken tracks," the chicken tracks side is too tight. In other words, you need to determine whether your bobbin tension needs to be tighter or looser.

You'll need a very tiny straight-slot screwdriver. Remove the needle plate--there are two screws in it--and remove the bobbin and then the bobbin case. On the side, there are two tiny screws. One is a Phillips--leave that one alone. The other is a straight-screw, and that one regulates the bobbin tension. The rule is "righty-tighty, lefty-loosey." Only turn it 1/4 turn, then reinsert and test. If you're on the right track, you should see at least a LITTLE improvement. DON'T do any more than that--if you don't do this carefully and systematically, you'll make things worse instead of better!

Bernina activa 210 won't zigzag and has bobbin issues on straight stitch

Brother VX 1120.... Machine is not making consistent stitches then thread loops and stitch goes straight and half zigzag, thread breaks. Same with straight stitches...will go for about an inch then stitch...


Remove the needle plate, bobbin case and bobbin and clean any lint that has accumulated.

Oil, if the manual indicates you should do this and where it should be done. Some do not as it has to be done by a repair tech.

Re-thread the machine with the presser foot in the up position.

Make sure the bobbin thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

If the problem continues, the machine will have to be services by a sewing machine repair person. Take samples of the stitching so they can see what it happening - it could be the timing has to be reset.

Bobbin winder is in operation mode


Try to change the bobbin winder position from left to the right and back again, probably it hasn't moved exactly to the proper position.
Check the version of the software and machine firmware under menu Help->About Futura. If you do not have the latest ones, you can update them through Live Update in the same submenu.

Machine will not zigzag


Depends on what kind of machine you have. Most of the time incorrect threading is the problem. The needle may be not be tightened in properly, or you may not have selected the correct sequence for zig-zag. Hope this helped a little.
