SOURCE: was given an old model Singer 237 Fashion Mate

If the bobbin is in the casing correctly then follow these steps...spin your wheel toward you until the threaded needle drops a thread around the bobbin casing it will slide down around the casing from center to the right and down. one the thread is just over half way around gentle pull the tail of your thread from the needle. It should move up and to the left collecting the thread from the bobbin casing. and a loop will arise below your presser foot (which should be up).pull that loop up until the tail of the bobbin is visable. Now you are ready to sew.

I don't know if you have the 237 or the 257 model but I think that they are very similar. You can download the manual for the 237 for free at, under the customer support tab. Enter 237 in the box for instruction model #, Look at page 14 and you can see if you are doing it right, because it looks like it will snap in place once you put it in correctly. If, you are, you may have to replace some parts, hopefully not. But, they can be had a and other places. A hard ciopy for the 257 is $15 from Singer. Good luck

How do I change the top gear on a singer fashion mate 368? I can't figure out how to get to the top vertical shaft gear to take it off.

These are repairs best left to a professional. Parts are not available to you unless you buy them used online, then its not the right part... Let a trained professional make these repairs and adjustments. Self repairs can result in more damage.

Look carefully at your plate.. there should be some flat spring steel "wings" Tip your machine so you can get those wings under the metal of the slide area.

My singer model 237 makes a stitch that doesn't look right. The bottom thread is just goes through the top thread loops under the material

Hi, if stitches are off, there is a problem with balance between the upper and lower stitch adjustments. You have to tweak these. Also, make sure there is no lint in the bobbin case area or under the feeddogs. Here is an excellent blog for 237 Fashion Mate owners. You are lucky to have one of these from the 1960's.
Happy Sewing!
