Oddly, this came up when i googled" troubleshoot singer 2263". but since I'm here...
This expenxive knick knack is a joke, except it's not funny.
We should get Michael Moore to make a movie. Singer sould be ashamed of themselves. The brand our grand & great grandmother's ached for & 90% of could not manage to purchase.
What with pandemics, wars & depression (not the type treated by Celebrex)
I got 1 for Christmas, YAY (I thought)
It worked exactly 92 days, (warranty is 90, & parts only)
Singer (who do not deserve to have their name capatalized) said take it to a singer dealer, ($80.00 to look @ , machine cost $90.00, later saw it on sale for $68.73).
The vendor did exchange it,
I took this exact replacement home, set it up, never sewed 1 stitch.
The bobbin thread was wrapping around the spool pin.
The box was gone, the receipt inside.
I took it back the next day. Vendor would not exchange.
So I''m going in...this was not my plan.
If I can't get it, I'm going to small claims court, as I do have proof of purchase on per my credit card.
I'll be back!

There should be one or two set screws behind the bobbin shuttle, they could also be in the bobbin shuttle. You will loosen them st the timing and then retighten them. The Timing on a sewing machine is really straight forward, but that doesn't mean its not a pain in the but. When the needle is at the bottom of its travelthe hook on the shuttle should be coming around to meet the needle. As the needle starts back up it will create a loop in the thread for that hook to catch. Therefore the needle needs to start up before that hook is directlly in line with the needle. But the hook has to be above the eye of the neelde. So rotate it back and forth with no thread and watch to see when the hook passes the needle. It will probably take several attempts but you can do it. Do it in small movements. and only tighten the set screws enough to hold the shuttle in place to check it. Do not forget to retighten them.

Have you pulled up on your top thread as it loops the bobbin thread? You are supposed to hold on to your top thread with your left hand and then lower your needle with the handwheel, you have to turn the wheel towards you not away from you or else you can mess up the timing. You will see it catch the thread and you will know to pull it up.
