Question about Singer 8763 Curvy Computerized Sewing Machine
On the singer curvy model number 8763 which wire can i clip to get rid of that infernal beeping/stopping. I have cleaned out the entire machine of any lint i can find. Made sure the buttonhole wasn't engaged. Re-threaded it repeatedly. Made sure the bobbin case was in correctly. Changed the tension, turned it off, then changed the tension back to auto. Changed out the needle. Made sure the needle was tightened. All of this was in the past few days. It has been beeping at me for months no matter what i do to fix it and the worst part is that it decides randomly when to stop beeping and will sew fine for a few minutes until it starts back up again. I have never had a problem with the tension and it has always sewed just fine, i just need to know how to get rid of the beeping altogether as that is making me want to chuck my machine out the window.

Hello there, loosen your top thread tension,if it looping on top of the material the tension is way too tight, you will also find changing the thread size to smaller thread, the top tension will also reduce,depending on application a good size thread to use is 25 grade,bobbin tension should have just a slight amount of drag as the top thread and bottom work against each other when sewing.

SOURCE: How to adjust belt tension
When you say 'Vintage'-- how old are we talking about?
Please describe the belt...
Is this an old Pedal (or platform that you rock your feet, to make the drive pulley go around)
Is it a 'pedal' powered machine?-- one with a round leather belt?
If it is the latter--
Is that belt all dried out?-- or is it still supple and still providing a good surface to grip the grooves of the 2 pulleys?
Tell us more-- maybe we can help.

SOURCE: I need a threading diagram
The upper thread flows from the left to right as it goes through metalstems (posts) with holes, along the top of the machine head, and thendrops down and passes over and under the upper gension disk and thetake up spring. Then, moves back up to the take up arm (which moves upand down like a goose's neck when turning the handwheel) then startsthe trip down to the needle, going through a couple metal loops (calledthread guides) and lastly through the needle thread guide and throughthe needle eye, as I recall from left to right (?), this part is moreobvious when looking at it.
Heres a link to a manual for that machine. hope this helps

Check the upper threading and make sure it is threaded correctly. When you pull on the thread before it goes through the needle does it give a bit or does it break? If it is breaking when you pull then the tension is way too tight or it is threaded incorrectly. Make sure it isn't looped around some guide along the line too.
For the bobbin thread... when it is in the bobbin case outside of the machine dangle it by the thread. It should hang there until you flick your wrist a bit, which should cause some thread to release and drop the bobbin down towards the floor a bit. (If it just pulls out right to the floor it is too loose). Most bobbin tension is tightened by a small screw on the bobbin case near where the thread comes though. Breaking thread would not be from the bobbin thread being too loose. Too loose would cause looping on top side of the stitch not breakage.
Make sure the bobbin is in correctly. You should feel and hear a slight "click" when the bobbin goes in correctly.
