SOURCE: Thread is not pulling off spool while trying to fill a bobbin.

There are a couple things that come to mind. If your plate is not pushed all the way up where it engages the metal tab on the bobbin, it will not wind properly. Second, if you are using a generic or an old bobbin, you need to replace it. I have seen many machines drive the owners crazy and it turned out to be a bad bobbin.

Take the thread completly off the machine and rethread it making sure it goes thru the tension wheel properly.
FYI Loops on the bottom-- Problem is in the threadding.. Loops on the top, problem is with the bobbin.

SOURCE: How do I get my Singer sewing machine to sew right

Start right from the beginning, make sure the presser foot is up when you thread the machine, make sure the presser foot is up, top tension should be about 4 or 5, make sure you use a good mercerised thread, make sure the bobbin tension is not too tight, you should only be able to pull the thread through with slight resistence, if it is too tight slacken the large screw on the bobbin case about a quarter of a tutn at a time and test.

How to thread on a singer 4411. Thank you


To thread the upper thread, make sure that the needle bar is fully up, using the hand wheel. Put the thread spool on the spool pin and secure it with the spool holder. Use the end of the spool holder that is closest to the spool size. Bring the thread through first guide to the left of the spool holder. Slide it past and behind the guide before pulling it into the guide. Then bring the thread to the pre-tension spring. Similarly, the thread goes behind the spring and then comes forward. Next bring the thread down through the channel and up through the adjacent one further to the left. It helps to hold the thread between the spool and the thread guide. Once you bring the thread up through the second channel bring it from right to left through the slotted eye of the take-up lever. Bring the thread down and through the horizontal thread guide, the thin guide clamp needle and to the needle. Thread the needle from front to back.

The manuals for most Singer sewing machines are available from the manufacturer's site: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual for the 4411 is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1230_4411_heavy_duty_esf.pdf . See page page 16 (page 23 of the PDF) for pictures of the guides.

I hope this helps.

How to time a sewing machine


Breaking needles is not an indication that your timing is off. If you are breaking needles, the most common cause is inserting your spool of thread so that the little notch on the spool that holds the loose end when it is not in use and when you first purchase it is facing your thread path, catching and holding up the thread and causing the needle to break. Another problem might be inserting the flat end of the needle improperly; generally, on modern machines with the bobbin system in the front, the flat part is inserted towards the back of the machine. You MUST have a user's manual; if you do not have one, go to the Singer site, and you can download it free.

Why does my singer 2732 thread keep breaking?


This happened to me several times. The way I fixed it was to:
- clean underneath where the bottom spool goes in, usually there is where the dust keep collecting.
- when holding the case spool before inserting it in the machine, make sure the thread that comes out is rolling towards YOU, the normal rolling way and NOT backwards.
- make sure the thread is not loose on the spool due to not enough thread on it.
- you might also want to check the thread on top - going through all the "curves", that somewhere is not being stock, that the thread is NOT skipping any"corners" and do not do any shortcuts when threading.
- there has to be ENOUGH thread on the TOP spool and on the BOTTOM spool.
- lastly, - pull everything out and start fresh with all the threading - top and bottom after cleaning the dust out and maybe any little bits of cut thread left over from the past work.

I'm sorry but that's all I can thing off .... I have been sawing for over 50 years and this is the way I always fix my machine every time, either manual or electric.
One thing is for sure, not all threads are appropriate for sawing machines and if you are trying to saw elastic, then you have to use the correct dial, because the usual one will NOT work and it WILL brake the thread !

I hope any of the above will help ... :)

How to use a twin needle


In most machines you do as follows.
Insert the second spool pin and place a spool of thread on each. Thread in usual sequence but make sure to pass one thread to the left and one to the right of the tension disc and do not allow the threads to twist together then thread needles manually.

Singer sewingmachine how to stop thread from breaking on the top


Thread breakage is often caused by a burr on the needle. Whenever i have a problem with thread breakage, I unthread the machine, replace the needle, and rethread.
Sometimes thread will wrap around the spool pin, so I use the upright spool pin or use a mug or water glass to hold the spool upright behind the machine.

I\'m not sure what you mean by "reel", but if you are referring to the spool pin which holds your thread, then you don\'t really have to have that. I use a spool stand instead. Then I can use any kind of thread without having to buy the little bitty spools. This is just an example of one style of thread holder. It is by far the cheapest way to replace a missing thread pin.

Some people also use a simple cup, and drop the thread inside, so that it doesn\'t unroll all over the work surface. Then thread the machine normally. If the thread needs to be directed to the first spot, a binder clip, attached to the handle of your machine, works really well as an extra "eye" to put the thread through, and secures it quite well.

My bobbin wont wind


you tell nothing, so let me guess

you could have wrong bobbin spool
it may not be inserted properly
your thread is just slipping because it isn't tight on the spool
you haven't engaged the "wind" drive
is the machine running but not winding? have you disengaged the main feed spool?
are you running motor at top speed?

Top thread breaking especially when machine in reverse.


try this
The machine is not threaded correctly--rethread the machine
The thread tension is to tight--reduce the thread tension (lower number)
The thread is to thick for the needle--select a larger needle
The needle is not inserted correctly--remove needle & reinsert the needle (flat side toward the back)
The thread could be wound around the spool pin
The needle is damaged--replace
Some needles & thread are not compatible--try this

Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread
