How do i hook up the belt to a singer 66 treadle machine please

Tools needed; a sharp knife or large scissors, an ink pen or Sharpie marker, a 4d-6d finish nail or a sharp ice pick or punch about the diameter of a pencil lead. A pair of pliers.
Clip the old belt in two (if it's still present) These belts generally last a long, long time under the right conditions. I have seen 100 year old treadle belts that still worked! However, they eventually dry-rot or just break.The machine should be in the up (working) position.Fold the new belt in the middle, and place it over the top of the handwheel of the machine. There will be two holes on most machine's cabinets directly under the handwheel, and immediately to the right of the machine base. Half the new belt goes in the front hole, and half in the back hole. Push it all the way down so that it comes down over the handwheel and lays in the belt groove, which will be to the left of where you grasp the handwheel, and be smaller in diameter. You may have to work the belt around the bobbin winder or belt guard to get it into the right place.Now get on your knees and peer up underneath the cabinet. You will of course see the two long ends of the belt that you just pushed through from above. The object is to get the back half looped around the large pulley underneath, and pulled up toward the front of that pulley so it can be measured and marked. This takes a little doing, especially the first time. No, no, go ahead and get the belt on and don't stop to clean out all the dust and cobwebs that you see under there!

Industrial sewing machine has jammed, the wheel will not turn

Hello Christine, I think you do have a thread stuck between the rotary hook and the bobbin case carrier. Remove the bobbin case and bobbin. You will need to remove two small slotted head screws and remove the half circle locking ring that holds the bobbin case carrier in place. Try to wiggle the bobbin case carrier one way and than the other until it comes out of the rotary hook assembly. Don't pry too hard or you might damage the carrier and/or rotary hook assembly. Once removed, I think you will find the thread that is causing the lock up situation . Before reassembling, place a drop of oil on the bearing surfaces between the carrier and rotary hook assembly and also between the locking ring and the carrier.

The underside of the stitches are very loopy looks okay from the top side but the threads keeps catching underneath and jamming up the machine.

sounds like the bobbin is in backwards. Usually the bobbin thread is supposed to come off the bobbin in a counter-clockwise position going under a tension bar of somesort

I can't lift the bobbin from the spindle after filling the bobbin. Sometimes it works and once in a while it will not move. No thread is underneath the bobbin. How do I get it off? Singer Sewing machine...

Sometimes the little spring on the spindle sticks out a bit too far and holds the bobbin on, the only way to get the bobbin off is to force it.

pull it towards you. if this does not work take off the rubber but usually you put finger underneath and pull. or catch on side of bobbin winder. hope this helps try oiling it as well. the spring or hing bit.

Threading bobbin on singer6268

Have you tried placing that half screw and or plug you found on top of the bobber compartment where it belongs: Normally underneath the bobbin compartment cover , at-top the bobbin case closest to you and your left..normally there will be a screw there to keep the bobbin and the bobbin case where it belongs, while it is doing it job.. at least thats how most of the sewing machines i have used or see or worked on have been.. Good luck.
