You'll need the service manual, because once the feed dogs are replaced, they need to be retimed. You can purchase and download the service manual for your machine here:

On my singer 538, the bobbin keeps catching and collecting the top thread, is the machine faulty??

Try a couple of things first. Put in a new bobbin, and make sure it's the correct size. Replace the needle with a new 80/12. Wind the bobbin, making sure it winds evenly. (You can guide it with your fingers.)
If these changes don't help. remove the bobbin case. Clean it out, along with the hook. Remove the bottom plate, and blow out the debris with a compressor. If it still won't work, you can take it in for repair. If you do, ask them to replace the gear on the main, lower shaft. It WILL fail. Once it's replaced, you're good for another 20 years.

I need a repaire manual for a singer simple 2263 sewing machine

This site might have what you need. Repair manuals can be very hard to find. I don't know that all the links on this site are still good but it is one of the only places I've even seen repair manuals for Singer machines listed. Best of luck.

Need to replace the gear in my singer sewing machine model 288

I can't get you the full instructions but I can offer some ideas which may help you. When you get into the machine (if the timing is still good) use a white or yellow grease pencil and make a mark across both gears as a reference point... then take a picture. When you start messing with gears it's really easy to get the machine horribly out of time. The reference point and picture will help you keep from getting it so far out of time.

I don't know if this will help you but here is a manual for your machine. I couldn't find an adjuster's manual.

My singer athena 2000 won't pull the bottom thread up to form a stitch. I know this is an OLD machine and I couldn't find the right selection from the list My Singer Athena 2000 sewing machine was...

I think if you watch the hook as you turn the wheel you will see that it is not moving.If it's not moving it can't pick up the thread or sew or wind the bobbin. If you really like this machine you can take it to a technician who is going to tell you you have a broken gear.Always have them replaced in pairs. On this machine there are 2 gears( 1 Pair) on the left and 2 gears( 1 Pair) on the right. If the machine is making buzzing noises, replace the machine instead of the gears. Singer makes a nice machine which sells for around $300 which will do more than the one you have and it is easier to use. Look at Model 7467. I sell quite a few of these and they don't give me or my customers problems.
