Bobbin problems and getting started

Recommended Posts

Batty:  It's a little difficult to tell, but it looks to me like the bobbin case latch is out of place.  It looks like the latch is too far to the left.  Looking at mine (which is an M not an L, but works the same way) my latch tip is further to the right - it extends all the way to the edge of the bobbin case.  The latch slides back and forth as you pull on it ( slides to the left when pulled, and back to the right when released).  The sliding action is what locks it in the bobbin basket.  There is a spring that pushes it back to the right when you release the lever.  If the latch is stuck, it won't snap over the bobbin basket shaft, and won't go all the way in.  Check it out.  Jim
