Question about Singer Sewing Machines
I load the bobbin and start to sew. The bobbin case jumps out of alignment and the thread under my material is like I sewed a thousand times in the same spot. What do I need to do to keep the case from moving out of alignment?? I oil when I should and I have had my machine for years and this has never been a problem before. Please help ASAP I have quite a few Christmas gifts to finish. Thank you so much Kathy M.

SOURCE: Bobbin Case
I'm having a similar problem today. I took out the bobbin case and when I went to put it back in, the whole system locks up. I've tired cleaning, changing needle taking the metal plate and piece that holds bobbin case out and put it all back in after cleaning. Nothing. My symptom is I can't get a complete stitch, the needle goes down, the whole deal acts like it will work and as soon as the arm of the bobbin case gets to 8 o' clock on the gears, It jams and won't hardly move. I cannot pull the bobbin case out easily after this. Perhaps there is someone out there that can help us!

The case probably has a scratch or a burr on it. Take it out of the machine and examine it for burrs or scratches.If you find some they can be removed with an emeryboard and then buffed with an SOS pad to make it very smooth.
When you put it back in the machine, thread the machine and sew by turning the wheel a few times before you actually begin sewing for real.

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.
Let me know.

unscrew the black plate that holds in the bobbin case and move it over to the left just a little bit, but make sure there is still clearance between the lower right corner of the case and the plate. The case should be able to wiggle a little, but not so loose it can pop out..
