I have a Singer Brilliance 6160 sewing machine and I have just started experiencing some problems with the bobbin winding mechanism. On the one hand, the bobbins are not so nicely wound as they used to. I mean, sometimes the winding is not homogeneous and there is more thread at the top or bottom of the bobbin. On the other hand, the machine used to stop when the bobbin was full and now it doesn't. It can continue forever, putting thread even out of the bobbin. Does anyone have had the same issue?
Thank you.

The bobbin winder tire may be worn out. Replace it.

I got this machine, a Singer 7444, brand new. The problem happened very soon after I got it. When I go to wind a bobbin, my machine makes a terrible grinding noise and the sewing needle will continue to rise and fall, though slowly. It seems like something isn't disengaging. One of my neighbors suggested oiling it, but I don't know where or even how to access the parts to oil. Could I have done damage by not looking into the problem sooner? If I go to get it repaired, will it likely be inexpensive?

You should return the machine to the store of purchase. Either they fix the problem or replace the machine. If too much time has passed (yes-you should have checked the problem immediately), I suggest a repair shop-you can get an estimate of cost before repair.

I have a Singer Brilliance machine. The bobbin winder shaft at the top right hand of the machine has a small metal piece that allows the bobbin case to slide in and stay locked. This fine metal piece has been dislodged from the plastic shaft and lost. Now the bobbin case will not turn and the thread will not wind on the bobbin. How do I repair this?

Thanks for the site but couldn't find the shaft item. In any case thought of a way to solve it. I just wrapped some paper onto shaft so that bobbin fits in snug and the winding began turning.

That's what this country needs - more innovative people who can find an unconventional way to solve a problem!!

Glad you solved your problem and now you can enjoy using your machine again.

I am a beginner sewer. I borrowed a machine, a Singer CG 500/550, and somehow the piece that you put the bobbin onto to put thread on the bobbin came unhooked within the machine. I opened the machine up, but have no clue how to connect the piece again. Help?
