SOURCE: need to retime singer ce-200 sewing machine

What you really need is a sewing machine tech. You are trying to time it the wrong way. The hook tip should be just above the eye of the needle when the needle is in the extreme left hand position

SOURCE: the timing is messed up

I would take it in for service, because unless you have the right tools and expertise, it is not a good thing. Sometimes, if you look in a pennysaver type paper there are retired sewing machine repairmen that do it for a reasonable price. I have heard of $80 in some repair shops, not counting parts. You kind of have to make up your mind if it is worth the money, once you find out how much to repair. Could you be lucky enough that, it is under warranty? Because, it is a newer model and maybe if you call Singer (1-800-4singer) & they can tell you where an authorized repair center is. How do you know that it is the timing? I am hoping that you have the good fortune to be under warranty. Good luck.

Hi ive just retimed my machine but now the bobbin thread isnt been picked up x i have a singer HD 4423 xx

That is generally a timing issue. The needle is arriving at the bobbin at the wrong time to intercept the bobbin thread. Be sure you are using a brand new needle.

Where can i change the timing

Retiming a machine can be tricky without special measuring equipment. I would recommend that you have a sewing machine technician adjust it, but it does not have to be a Singer technician--it's a common adjustment on any machine. I understand Sears will service any model of machine.

The most common cause of the hook going out of synch is turning the hand wheel away from you repeatedly. ALWAYS turn it towards you.
