Unless you want to deal with the little screws to take it apart, you may take it to an authorized singer service dealer. Look in your local yellow pages under sewing machines.

You are jammed up with thread or material. Clean it out, rethread, wind a new bobbin. Oil your machine and put in a new needle. When you sew, hold the thread ends when you first start out sewing for about 4-5 stitches. Read your manual, watch your dvd on instructions

Try clearing out all of your lint, pieces of thread and debris from the bobbin area. If that doesn't work, then you may need to have your machine cleaned. I had the same problem with my machine, and took it to my repair guy. He told me that the mechanism of the machine was packed tight with lint and "stuff" that had worked in. After a thorough cleaning, the machine ran like new.
You may also want to try to completely unthread the machine and rethread it (both top and bobbin). Sometimes that works.

You can download an instruction manual for Singer machines from here http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html, just type in the model number and click "search".

This sounds more like top thread is not in tension though so have you checked tension is working okay?

However, to adjust timing you will need a service manual or general instructions for a horizontal hook sewing machine. You may find a video that helps with this on You-tube, I just leave it to the experts.

Your machine sounds like it needs retiming unless you are using a needle bigger than a size 16, I can attach instructions if you want to do it yourself.

Have a singer 3221/3232 cannot disengage handwheel to fill bobbin what am I doing wrong


Are you sure you have to pull or push? It looks to me like you just slide the bobbin winder spindle to the right to engage.

Here's a manual for your machine... I'm sure more specific info is in there.

Single 8280 sewing machine handwheel not turning


okay, i have never used a sewing machine except for once, but i do know quite a bit about them because my grandmother knows a lot to. so, here we go. take the spool of thread off of the machine now,locate the thing (i'm not sure what its called) that the spool rests on. now, push it in and turn it at the same time. test it out. keep doing that until it works. it might take as much as an hour, but at the same time it could just take a few simple seconds. good luck.

Singer 2263 instruction manual does not show where to lubricate or how to adjust the hook which keep jamming


First make sure that the needle is fully up. Then you need to open the hinged front cover and unscrew the needle plate screws. Remove the bobbin. Brush out any lint now. Remove the bobbin case. Then snap the hook retaining arms outwards. Remove the hook cover and hook. Put no more than 2 drops of sewing machine oil on the the case (center right hand side). Then turn the hand wheel until the hook race is in the left position. Replace the hook and then the hook cover. Snap the hook retaining arms back into position. Replace the bobbin case and bobbin. Then replace the stitch plate.

Test the machine on a piece of waste fabric. If the hook keeps jamming, take the machine in for maintenance. The parts that may need to be replaced are the race or the shuttle hook. However without seeing the unit I do not know if there is not another problem. Some parts for the 2263 are available here: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/singer-2263-sewing-machine-parts.aspx .

Singer has a second manual available with the oiling instructions for the 2263 here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1213_oiling-2263.pdf . See the diagrams on this page for where things line up. The rest of the instruction manual is also online here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1180_2263%28eng_spa_fre%29.pdf .

I hope this helps.

My machine started making noise and the handwheel became hard to turn. The hand wheel stopped turing completely. can I fix this myself or does it have to be repaired professionally?


Take the bobbin case out completely to begin witgh and check for any jammed thread, see if you can turn the balance wheel once the bobbin case is out, if you have a front load bobbin take the raceway out as well, if it still does not move you have a problem which will need shop attention
