SOURCE: Not picking up the Bobbin thread

Sounds like you have to take off the throat plate and clean out threads under it.  Sometime they ball up and prevent the needle from going down and catching the bobbin thread. You can't see themuntil you take off the plate.  Follow the directions.  It is easy.

SOURCE: The thread is bunching up

Your problem stems from the faulty foot lever mechanism. It's coupled to the upper thread tension control which only provides tension when the presser foot is in the locked down position.

If the presser foot won't positively engage in the down position, there's no upper thread tension and the thread bunches up below. Everything else stems from there. If the needle has hit the bobbin case too frequently then the bobbin timing may also be slightly out and the needle itself will be damaged and won't pass straight through the fabric; it only takes a tiny deflection from the vertical as it passes through the workpiece for the needle to flex and hit the bobbin case.

In summary, your machine is in desperate need of repair and adjustment. You haven't stated which exact Singer model you have, but they are usually easy to get servicing manuals for or you can take the machine to a sewing machine servicing specialist. Most singer spare parts (even for 100 year old machines) are usually still available fairly cheaply from a variety of sources, just enter "Singer spares" into your search engine to find suppliers.

To prevent re-occurrence, clean the mechanism regularly and lubricate it as directed by the manufacturer using sewing machine oil. Depending on how often you use the machine, do (or have done) a more thorough service periodically to check the timing and also that all mechanism screws remain tightly fastened.

I hope that my reply has shed some light on your problem and enables you to decide what to do next. Please take a moment to rate my answer.

Sorry the needle is not going down,


Needles will not go down for:
1. The lock on the hand wheel isn't locking. Try this
a. Loosen the lock like you're going to wind a bobbin.
b. Loosen screw that is on the side of the lock. (sometimes front)
c. Tighten the lock just like when you're going to sew.
d. Tighten the screw that is on the side of the lock.(sometimes front)
e. Turn hand wheel by hand. Did the needle rise and fall?
2. The drive belt isn't moving the shaft.
a. Remove the top of the sewing machine.
b. You will most likely have to remove the panel on the end where the hand wheel is.
c. Turn your hand wheel to see if the belt is moving the shaft or is it broken?
d. Replace if you need to. (look at wear). Loosen the motor.
e. Make your motor run (foot pedal) slowly. Tighten the belt by pushing on the motor while it is running. When the motor is placed at the right place the motor will be moving with very little drag. (This will need a listening ear)
f. At this point tighten motor and retest for the speed and drag.

Centering needle on Baby Lock Ellure


Make sure the needle is at its highest point. Use the flywheel/ hand wheel on the right side of the machine to move the needle.

I have a Baby Lock 5280E. Can you tell me how to set the machine for rolled hem?


Assuming you mean a narrow rolled edge:
  1. Remove the left needle and thread.
  2. Open both the front and side covers.
  3. Raise the presser foot and the upper knife to the highest position.
  4. Clear the stitch fingers.
  5. Push the stitch with former release lever and remove the stitch former from the lower knife base. (Don't lose it!)
  6. Turn the stitch with adjusting dial until the "M" on the dial matches the red indicator on the needle plate.
  7. Set the stitch width length to "M".
  8. Close the covers, lower the presser foot and the upper knife.
This gives you a narrow edge. To roll the edge, increase the tension of the lower looper (the green knob) about three numbers higher than normal.

Serger/sewing machine


You probably are in need of a new bobbin case they are plastic and oif you have broken a needle lately it may have gouged the case and the top thread is getting caught and bunching up underneath. Visit www.stevessewandvac.com you can contact them and have a bobbin case sent to you.
