    Great minds think alike, but I tried that and brushed all the lint out of the mechanism and it stillm fails. I described the trouble to Singer and they tell m,e it has to be retimed.

Hi, I used to have the same problem. I pulled the whole bobin casing out, cleaned it oiled it. When I put it back in, I made sure the actual bobin was turing the right direction so the cotton didnt snag and pull casing up.

If you havent already tried this give it a go.Its amazing how much gunk gets in there.

I think my husqvarna emerald 118 sewing machine needs to be timed.Bobbin keeps popping out,needle is hitting the bobbin case


If the bobbin case is correctly in position then the needle striking it is a sure fire indication that the timing has jumped. Time for a trip to your local sewing centre for a service and retime I would suggest.

Could be that your bobbin thread is wound too tightly and having a problem pulling thread from it. Try setting the pressure on bobbin a bit less and that may cure it.

I 've been using this 2639 Singer since 2006. It was working perfect until one day the bobbin case popped up away from the shuttle causing the needle to be blocked from moving. So, I removed the p


First change that needle. It's likely bent. A bent needle won't create a stitch.

Then double check your timing. It sounds like you have it ******** a bit... But that's hard to determine from a description. Before you start the timing process, make sure that your needle bar is in the correct position. (typically the upper timing mark on the needle bar is just below the lower needle bar guide when the needle is at its very lowest point) If necessary loosen the needle bar holder and make a correction. Once the needle bar is positioned correctly... then move on to the shuttle/needle timing.

Good luck!

Sewing machine wont stitch in reverse, needle hitting bobbin feed.


since the needle is hitting the bobbin feed it has to be replaced, if the machine continues to hit the bobbin feed the most likely the machine is out of time & has to be retimed at a sewing machine repair shop
they would also be able to see why the machine won't stitch in reverse

I have a Singer 327K that stitches three or four good stitches and then stops completely stitching


it's very possible that when the needle broke the machine went out of time & would have to be retimed at a sewing machine shop

New Problem...I have a Singer CG-550. When I try and sew anything, the needle hits something inside where the bobbin is. The little black casing holing the bobbin keeps moving all over the place, I slip...


On the right of the black bobbin case there are two screws, you can slacken those screws off and move the bobbin case nearer to the guard leaving enough room for the thread to pass through, if the needle is hitting the bottom you may need to retime the machine.

Machine will not pick up the bobbin thread.


if your machine's needle threads from front to back, make sure that the flat part of the needle shank points to the rear of the machine. If it threads from left to right, the flat side should face right, etc.

Singer 301A stitch jam


your machine threads from right to left. the needle flat spot faces left. big loopy things means that the upper part of the machine is not threaded properly. as far as the needle hitting the bobbin case, it sounds as if someone removed the hook (part that holds the case) and put it back on 180 degrees off.
