Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I h e a singer quantum stylist 9960. The bobbin case keeps popping out and breaking me needle. I've already sent it into a ago and had the case replaced. I was told that just putting the thread in the wrong direction can cause it... So now I'm putting it in the right way and again it's happened. I've undone the plate and cleaned everything out, replaced the needle, re threaded the top an bottom but no luck. The bobbin case keeps popping out and not staying in place causing a broken needle and a out of place bobbin case. Anyone have any suggestions what I'm doing wrong?

SOURCE: My needle thread keeps breaking. I've tried

Are you sure you have got the top thread threaded correctly including the take up lever? Start at the thread spool and follow the thread all the way through the thread path checking that it is not snagging on anything enroute and that the thread is correctly through the tension device. Also tension dial should be on 4-5, if its higher this could be breaking the thread. YOu should not need to adjust top thread tension more than a half increment at any time.

Other possibility is that the bobbin holder under the needle plate has moved out of alignment and then the top thread is catching there as it goes around the hook.

If you check your manual it should give you instructions on removing the needle plate (2 screws need to come out), then you can lift the bobbin case out towards you, clean underneath with your little brush, then reinsert it. There are two little red marks on the right side of the bobbin case and a stopper, these need to be lined up. Then put in bobbin and rethread into tension spring, replace needle plate, bobbin cover, and test stitch.

Hopefully one of the above is causing the thread to break.

sounds to me like you need a professional cleaning and timing adjustment.

SOURCE: I 've been using this 2639 Singer since 2006. It was working perfect until one day the bobbin case popped up away from the shuttle causing the needle to be blocked from moving. So, I removed the p

First change that needle. It's likely bent. A bent needle won't create a stitch.

Then double check your timing. It sounds like you have it ******** a bit... But that's hard to determine from a description. Before you start the timing process, make sure that your needle bar is in the correct position. (typically the upper timing mark on the needle bar is just below the lower needle bar guide when the needle is at its very lowest point) If necessary loosen the needle bar holder and make a correction. Once the needle bar is positioned correctly... then move on to the shuttle/needle timing.

Good luck!

Don't put to much stock in the fancy names they apply to items. A lot of the time, it just simply indicates nonessential things, like a color or something.

Just purchased the Singer Quantum Stylist 9960, but can't get the needle threader to work. I can pull it down, but it won't turn to thread the needle.


When you pull the needle threader down it seems like it is pulled all the way down but it isn't. Pull it a little harder and it will turn and go down all the way to match up with the needle eye. I was a little scared to apply the extra "force", thinking I could break my new machine. Just be easy with it and it will work just like the manual says.
Good luck....
