Question about Sewing Machines
My machine has had very little use in the 1 year I have owned it, purchased brand new. Today, as I was sewing my daughter's costume, the feed dog just stopped working! It was working fine, then it stopped. It is also "growling" when I begin to sew. I took apart and cleaned under the bobbin case and it is still not working. What else can I try?

Hi Jeanette! You have a Singer Featherweight--the best sewing machine ever made! (Mine dates from 1950/51 and I wouldn't trade it for the world.) These beautiful, sturdy machines were designed to be easily repairable at home, but you'll need a copy of the Service Manual (get the Instruction manual too, if you don't have one.) Go to www.singer-featherweight.com and check out what they have available.
I had a similar problem (needle thread not catching the bobbin thread) and the problem was that I hadn't put the needle in correctly (flat side to the left). Also, I will occasionally get thread wrapped around the bobbin housing--sewing along just great and then everything comes to a screeching halt. I'm not sure why that happens, but I'm getting pretty good at taking the bobbin housing apart. The manual is pretty clear on how to do it. You can contact me direct at email@example.com for more information.

Check for lint buildup between the feeddog teeth, will look like felt pads.....remove it !.........this little housekeeping should be done regularly......also ensure the correct stitch length is selected, not set at zero (OK, unlikely, but can happen !!)

SOURCE: bobbin case case keeps jamming
I am having somewhat the same problem with the exception that my needle did not break. I've cleaned and oil, but the bobbin case and projection positioned spring is not communicating to allow sewing to continue. The thread keeps jamming and the bobbin raises up the plate. So, what else am I to do?

SOURCE: Not picking up the Bobbin thread
I cleaned the machine good with canned air, oiled it. I took out the bobbin case and cleaned it good also. I then noticed the tension screw on the bobbin case was loose, tightened it and the problem was fixed.
