Question about Sewing Machines

Open Question

I cannot replace the shuttle and bobbin case in a Singer simple 2263.

The machine has a front loading bobbin case, now the shuttle and the bobbin have fallen out. I can't figure out how to make the shuttle stay in the machine. It keeps falling out, therefore the bobbin won't stay in, and therefore the machine will not stitch.

Oddly, this came up when i googled" troubleshoot singer 2263". but since I'm here...

This expenxive knick knack is a joke, except it's not funny.

We should get Michael Moore to make a movie. Singer sould be ashamed of themselves. The brand our grand & great grandmother's ached for & 90% of could not manage to purchase.

What with pandemics, wars & depression (not the type treated by Celebrex)

I got 1 for Christmas, YAY (I thought)

It worked exactly 92 days, (warranty is 90, & parts only)

Singer (who do not deserve to have their name capatalized) said take it to a singer dealer, ($80.00 to look @ , machine cost $90.00, later saw it on sale for $68.73).

The vendor did exchange it,

I took this exact replacement home, set it up, never sewed 1 stitch.

The bobbin thread was wrapping around the spool pin.

The box was gone, the receipt inside.

I took it back the next day. Vendor would not exchange.

So I''m going in...this was not my plan.

If I can't get it, I'm going to small claims court, as I do have proof of purchase on per my credit card.

I'll be back!

Singer 2263 needle hitting something in bobbin area (loud thunk) and needle moves


try taking the bobbin out and putting it back in the bobbin
case if it's a top loading bobbin
if it's a side or front loading bobbin make sure the bobbin case is
inserted correctly
if the bobbin and bobbin case are inserted correctly then
it sounds like the sewing machine could have a timing
problem and needs to be checked at a sewing machine shop

Singer 2263 will not sew because bobbin thread winds back around the bobbin


have you tried changing the needle?
rethread the machine top & bobbin
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case & also wound correctly

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.

I have a SINGER 2263. I've used this machine less than ten hrs. I have a jam, I've cleaned everything. The machine will turn un-restricted in reverse but forward half a cycle. The needle will either...


With the machine unplugged, remove the bobbin case and the shuttle mechanism. Clean and oil it. Check for any fabric or threads in your feed dogs. Change needles in case that one is bent slightly. If the jam was really bad, you may have messed up the timing, unfortunately.

Thread bunces up on the bottom causing machine to


I would start by looking for a problem with the bobbin tension. Do you have the bobbin threaded through the case correctly? Is the the bobbin tension set to loose? Another thing that can cause it to spool up on the bottom is if it sews a bunch of stitches all in the same spot or real close, do you have the presser foot tension to loose?

I have a simple singer 2263. I have now realized I had it threaded wrong, but ended up with a large jam in the bobbin/shuttle area. I removed the shuttle - any pictures or instruction on how to replace?...
