Question about Sewing Machines
We have reset the timing as the original problem was with the bobbin thread not catching. I have cleaned and oiled the machince,. I have tried different types of threads. The needle will only go about half way down then refuses to continue. It is just STUCK
Are you sure you have it timed correctly? Is it stuck or is it really just hitting something?

SOURCE: Bottom thread will not catch
Unplug the machine and remove the needle plate so that the bobbin case if fully exposed. Lift out the bobbin case and the cup that it sets in will be visible. Locate the "hook" on this cup. It is a finger with a sharp point at the upper edge of the cup. The hook is what grabs the thread from the needle while sewing.
If the hook catches the thread from the needle, put everything back together and try threading again.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

SOURCE: need sewing machince help????
breaking thread and thread below not hook up by upper thrread, this is due on not properly set up of thread tension,first check bobbins winding see figure.the threads should
be counter clockwise.
the theading on upper set up should prorerly inserted follow figures.
the dial set up tension should start at #3 to # 5
the stitch tension should be set to # 8 to # 12
use trial run for fabrics,diffferent set up in every fabric tru to study before sewing in other fabrics.have a nice day don't forget to rate me.thank s a lot
