I just had this problem, too - if you have the manual, check out page 15. If you have removed the throat plate, you need to make sure that the position finger on the bobbin case base enters a notch on the underside of the throat plate. Fixed my problem right away.

I have a Singer Curvy 8780. All I want to do is sew a straight stitch. What are the settings?


You'll need stitch pattern 01 in the first group after you press the utility stitch button (top button on the left of the 4 way arrow keys). Press button A (the left most up-arrow below the LCD screen). Use buttons B (move left) & C (move right) to select the needle position and D (shorter) & E (longer) to adjust the stitch length. E is the right-hand button in the group. Start with the tension set to Auto and adjust as needed based on your fabric and thread. For normal straight seams, start with the default settings.

Singer has the manual for the Curvy 8780 on the product site: http://www.singerco.com/products/1545/8780-curvy#type-support . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/089a99d1802347d9441d83e8a591e6d0db17b80c.pdf . See page 30 for the stitch pattern; page 40 starts a longer discussion of straight stitching.

I hope this helps.

Brand new sewing machine wont stitch. Any ideas?!?!


I'm sure you've done this, but I'll just throw this out there. Did you pull the bobbin thread through the groove that slants on the left side of the needle plate starting from the upper left corner of the bobbin cover?

How do i make my singer curvy 8780 stop sewing after i have finished sewing my fabric


Sounds like your brushes in your motor are worn. Either that or your foot peddle is sticking.

Troubleshooting sewing machine bobbin problems


If your machine will not pick up the thread when you first put in a bobbin, your timing is probably out of synch, although it could also be caused by a needle that is either not inserted all the way up in the clamp, OR a needle that is not properly inserted, with the flat part in the proper direction.

If your needle is properly inserted, you should get a technician to reset the timing for you.

Have curvy 7863, was sewing fine, went to do a button hole , would only gum up and alarm went off, got flustrated put other pressure foot back on now will not sew, will not pick up bobbin thread, and...


Have you opened yp the bobin feed? Check to see if thread knotted underneath. This can make the needle hit the threads and niot go dep enough to latch onto the thread in order to sew.

Singer curvy beeps 4 times and stops sewing


when you thread the machine make sure to use every thread guide
check to see if the bobbin is in correctly
try changing the needle--normally flat side goes to the back
the needle that your sewing with is it the right one for the thread & fabric
clean under the needle plate & bobbin area for lint or loose threads

My singer curvy is not pulling the thread from the bobbin when i lower the needle


Providing you have a new needle in the correct way round if it does not pick up the tread you will need to take it in to get retimed.
