Problems with Singer 2732

I saw your answer to someone else's problem with a Singer 2732. I too have this maching and it is constantly making a knotted mess underneath. I saw that you said it may have to do with timing. How do I adjust the timing?

  • Are you using a quality thread? Most bargain threads throws off excessive lint, have loose fibers and knots which can all effect how your machine forms stitches.

  • Check the way your machine is threaded. Completely un-thread your sewing machine and re-thread it. Remember to always thread your machine with the presser foot up. Knotting thread on the bottom side is usually caused by upper threading errors.

  • Check the bobbin and be sure the bobbin is threaded correctly and that the bobbin case is correctly threaded. Be sure the bobbin is in the bobbin case in the correct direction.

  • Try this first before we move on to the timing.

"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

My singer 2732 sewing machine will not pick up bobbin thread

There are three causes. Make sure your needle is all the way up in the needle clamp, and the flat side it on the back (if your bobbin is in the front of the needle).

If it is, then your timing is out of synch, and you will need to get a technician to fix it.

You can go here, search 2732, and purchase an instruction manual for your machine, if you have misplaced the one that came with it. It looks like they're like $15.

Also, Singer has just installed new Q&A features on their website. You can go here: and look for your particular model. At the bottom of the product page, you can post Questions for singer experts and other community members to answer!

Good luck!
