I have not yet been able to set this up properly to sew so this is a brand new machine. it came with a dvd on how to do this. i have watched the video multiple times and do not know what i am doing wrong. after i insert the bobbin, i can not get the bottom stitch to come through. i am supposed to manually turn the dial on this side towards myself one whole time and the bottom thread should come through. however, it does not do this and when i do begin to sew, it works for about 15 seconds and then completely stops and all the thread on the bottom is completely jammed up. please help!
I had same problem. After making sure the thread was loaded properly still same thing happened. Then I reloaded the bobbin and made sure the long metal bar on the metal casing fit securely into the half circle slot at the top of the big metal ring that bobbin goes into. After that, just rotated handwheel a couple of times until thread came through. Problem solved.
I had the same problem and all I had to do was turn the bobbin around. Make sure the end of the string is going ----> that way facing you and put it into the case (still facing you), putting the string through that slot. You want to be sure you leave enough string hanging out so the top string can come down and grab it. I hope I helped some!

Make sure that your needle is ALL THE WAY up in the needle clamp and the flat side of the needle is away from you.towards the back.
Review the steps for inserting a bobbin in the bobbin case and raising the thread in your user's manual; if you don't have it, you can download it free at the Singer Sewing Machine site.
If you have done these things and you still can't get the thread to come up, then your timing has gone out of synchronization, and you will need to get a technician to reset it for you. If you cannot find a sewing machine technician willing to adjust a Singer, Sears supports all brands of sewing machine.
Personally regret to hear a kind of problem that you have on the machine, however the other customers are enjoying and benefited from it for one reason they were given demonstration before/upon purchasing the 2250. If your new machine does not include a demo cd, I suggest you visit singer site thru google "singer 2250 sewing machine" and you may be able to download the video on how to use the machine. Hope that can be useful.
have you taken the bobbin case out and cleaned it. Its a simple process if you look directly at where the bobbin goes in you will see two latches one on either side of the bobbin case, release those and clean this area and oil it, reassemble and then reload. bobbin thread could be old or if the bobbin was wound on a different machine the tension could be wrong for this machine. when reassembling bobbin case make sure that all parts are seated corectly, also sometimes the actual case that holds the bobbin may need to be replaced, if its an older machine it could be worn.
I would say that the threading is wrong somewhere, watch your dvd and read the owners manual, also go to Singer.com FAQ for your machine, If the jamming is underneath, it is the top threading problem, on top, it is the bobbin thread either has lint or stray thread or thread not coming out the right direction for your bobbin, I am sure that it is just a simple solution, I also use metal SA 156 bobbins and have no problems,
Make sure the bobbin case sets sort of on top and not under the ridge of the metal ring. There is a small latch on the upper left of the bobbin case. It is metal. rotate the latch to cover the bobbin case and this should stabilize the case without making it immobile
