Question about Singer 5050 Mechanical Sewing Machine

2 Answers

Asinger model 5050 will not make stitches,checked all points,

My singer model 5050 will not create any stitches. Have removed bobbin case and cleaned out all debri. Reset the bobbin case, checked tension and rethreaded and still not getting a good stitch. Whhen it does get a stitch, it does a few then skips and not return to making stitches. Have noticed that when pulling up bobbin thread, the first round of top thread does not catch the bobbin when pulling wheel towards me. It takes second try before it catches. Any suggestions on how to remedy this ?

I 've been using this 2639 Singer since 2006. It was working perfect until one day the bobbin case popped up away from the shuttle causing the needle to be blocked from moving. So, I removed the p


First change that needle. It's likely bent. A bent needle won't create a stitch.

Then double check your timing. It sounds like you have it ******** a bit... But that's hard to determine from a description. Before you start the timing process, make sure that your needle bar is in the correct position. (typically the upper timing mark on the needle bar is just below the lower needle bar guide when the needle is at its very lowest point) If necessary loosen the needle bar holder and make a correction. Once the needle bar is positioned correctly... then move on to the shuttle/needle timing.

Good luck!

Singer sewing machine bobbin thread knots rather than forming stitches or forms large loose stiches on bottom of fabric


What you have going on is a bobbin problem. The knots are referred to as birds' nests and happen when your bobbin thread gets caught on a piece of the bobbin casing. The large, loose stitches are normally caused by a problem with the bobbin case, a bobbin that is would properly, or when you're getting to the end of the bobbin's thread and the thread is loosely would on the bobbin at that point.

You're best bet is probably to buy a new bobbin casing. They're usually about $25 or so and you should be able to find one on eBay by searching for Singer (your machine name and model) under the Crafts category. The silver plate on top of the area covering where you place your bobbin into has screws you need to carefully remove (careful not to loose them!). If you need to, take pictures with your cellphone or digital camera as you remove the old bobbin casing so you can see how to put the new one in.

This should take care of the problem. If, for some reason it doesn't, you may well have a problem ALSO with your bobbin tension, and that should be looked at by a Singer Technician. You can find one in the yellow pages near you or probably by searching Yahoo Local. Happy Sewing.

Try buying a new bobbin case, it probably was damaged by jumping out of position.

How do you change the tension on a bobbin for a singer 5050 We don't have an instructional manual?


Unless you are going to hand wind a heavier thread on the bobbin, you do not need to make any adjustment to the bobbin tension.

There is a screw on the side of the bobbin case and this is where you adjust the tension.

You can download a free manual here - http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html

If your stitching is loopy, it is not the bobbin.

Re-thread the machine with the presser foot up. This will insure proper tension when the top thread and bobbin thread combine to make a stitch.

Model #5050: the top stitch looks fine but underneath, massive loops. I've changed the needle, rethreaded the bobbin, altered the thread tension, but still the problem remains. Any ideas? Margaret W.


You may have threaded the machine with the presser foot down. This closes the tension control and the thread cannot properly enter during the threading process.

Re-thread with the presser foot up.

Test the stitching.
