Singer 626 Not sewing

My mom is out of town and I borrowed her Singer 626 sewing machine to sew a Halloween costume. The problem is, I just wound the bobbin and now it won't stitch. I try sewing and the stitch doesn't hold and the needle seems to get jammed.

I can't find the manual without paying for it and the only help I could find was how to actually wind the bobbin. Now it says I need to refer to page 19 on how to sew with a newly wound bobbin. Help! Does anyone know how to do this or have page 19?

First, give Mom all your Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
Then, be sure the bobbin-winding function is not still engaged. Check it again, since on some machines, the mechanism has to be backed off until you hear a click, or until a light turns off. If that's done, check the tension on your top thread, since that's easier, then on your bobbin thread.
If the bobbin didn't get wound evenly (Like if you're hurrying) that will mess up its ability to let the thread flow out, so see if the thread on the bobbin looks as smooth as a new spool of thread.
I hope you got your costume together & had fun aside for that frustration. :^)

When I use my Singer model 1120 for sewing straight lines, the thread bunches up underneath. What is the problem?


Be sure that the machine has been cleaned and oiled. Check to be sure the machine is threaded correctly. Check to make sure the bobbin was wound properly.
