Sounds like you may have a blockage somewhere in the bobbin area that needs cleaning as this is normally what happens when it gets jammed. Reverse sewing can sometimes cause jams. Remove bobbin area and reassemble.

Singer model 478 does not pick up bobbin thread,lower belt around 3 gears does not turn under power. What do I need to Know?

There is a shaft that runs from the top of the machine to the bottom, in turn driving the bottom gear and belt. Though it is hard to see, you will probably find that the gear at the top of that shaft has the teeth broken. It is not impossible to change but definitely difficult.

How do you remove the hand wheel on a singer model #648 sewing machine

Sounds like you might have a broken gear in the transmission. Since the Touch and Sew series (aka Touch and Swear, Sew and Throw, etc.) are so touchy about adjustments, I'd probably take this one to a good sewing machine mechanic and let him/her do the heavy lifting on this.

I have an old Singer 478 and I can't get the needle to grab the bobber thread. Is there a special trick for this one?

When you turn the handwheel, does the hook move? If not the top gear on the vertical shaft is stripped and needs to be replaced.

How do I fix a timing problem with my singer sewing machine? The needle thread will not pick up my bobbin thread.

Here's how you set the timing od the Machine alright:
1. Take the side plate off, take the needle plate off.
2. Take the presser foot off, and put a new needle in the machine. 3. Make sure that the needle is in the lowest position and look at the needle bar for the two timing lines. Locate the top line.
4. Then, turn the handwheel toward you until the top line is where the bottom line was.
At this point, the tip of the hook should be directly in the scarf of the needle.
This should set the timing of the machine perfect....
