Singer Bobbin Rod Not Winding?

I have a Singer Traditional model. I put a bobbin on the bobbin rod, then went to take it off and the bobbin and rod came out of the machine. I took the bobbin off the rod. It was a bit tight and then put a new bobbin on, but the bobbin rod seems loose and won't spin when the foot pedal is pushed down (won't wind on or off). How can I fix it?

You can't fix this at home - this is a job for a professional repair tech. The pro will have the tools and parts to do the repair and then reassemble your machine correctly.

What has happened is one of two things - either the bobbin winding spool has broken where it was soldered to the top of the gear that turns it, or the entire gear has 'died'.

Really, this isn't a machine killer - you have two choices. One would be to splash out around $60USD (Google for currency conversion if not in the US) to have the machine repaired. Be sure to ask what the extra charge would be for a 'servicing' as this includes cleaning, checking timing and other functions, and can add years to the life of your machine.



Splash out around $25USD for a bobbin winder machine (Simplicity makes a really good one).

The part that turns the bobbin winder isn't integral to the sewing function (unless the rod broke off while the machine was still in bobbin winding mode) - if not broken off in bobbin winding mode you can still sew and if that's the case, the peripheral winding machine is the least expensive solution to your problem. You can go years without the bobbin winding function operable as long as your machine is kept in good order by regular maintenance (see your machine model operating guide).
