Question about Singer 2662

Skipped stitches, but only certain spots

Hi, i have a problem with my Singer 2662. It sews just fine until I get to thicker parts of whatever i'm sewing (more than 2 or 3 layers of fabric), then it starts skipping. I have adjusted the tension, changed the needle, gone really REALLY slow over the area, you name it....I can't figure it out! Please help!

Re: Skipped stitches, but only certain spots

Maybe wrong kind of needle; universal usually works for all, but not always, ball point for knits and sharp for woven.

Skipping stitches

Skipped stitches
1. A bent or dull needle
2. The wrong needle for your fabric
knit fabrics require a jersey or ballpoint tip. Most wovens do well with a universal tip, and specialty fibers, like leather or metallic, usually require specific needles.
3. Incorrect machine threading
4. Unbalanced needle thread tension
Start by making relatively small changes and run a test stitch to evaluate the impact. If you need to adjust the tension dial using woven cotton fabric with good quality all-purpose thread and a new needle
5.check the needle is inserted correctly. The needle needs to be pushed as far up the needle shaft as possible. It's easy to insert the needle half way, clamp it down and think it is inserted correctly.
the flat part of the needle should be positioned towards the back. If the needle is not inserted correctly, it will not be able to pull up the bobbin thread and will cause skipped stitches.
6. If the suggestions don't help then it is time for a tune-up.

My bobbin case will not stay in place, every time I sew it moves then gets caught under the!!

I was having some problems with mine and I changed to a metal bobbin size SA156 and have had no more problems. I bought them on ebay, 20 for $8.99 and free shipping. They are a Brother number but are the same size as 15j and work great, no more skipped stitches or anything, You may find them locally to at least try them. Whoever sells Brother machines should have them, just make sure that it is a SA156. I hate the plastic bobbins, they always give me grief. Good luck, I hope that it helps.

Hello I have the same problem with my 2662 and all the other different stitches too. I'm just able to do the straight stitches.What's wrong with this model?

What do you have your width set for? How wide do you want to go? Read your manual and you will see the problem. If, by chance, it still does not work, call Singer at 1-800-4singer
