Question about Singer 8280 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I have been able to use it with no problem. I check that the neelle and the foot are secure. I then turn the wheel by hand to be sure the needle clears the foot (the middle section). Then I sew for awhile and all of a sudden, the needle breaks. I have used up the needles that came with the machine.
HELP ASAP. Thank you.
So, it sews for a while? It sounds to me like the screw that holds the needle in place is loose. As the needle moves up and down the screw loosens until that one fateful stitch, it comes out completely. Try to tighten with a screw driver.
the other possibility is that it breaks if you are sewing over a bulky seam, like a flat fell. as the presser foot "toes up" to go over the lump, the needle hits and there you are.
holler if that doesn't help.
