Putting the race back into the machine

I took out the race to clean the bobbin area of my machine. I think I may need a new race. I need a picture to see how it goes back into the machine. What would you recommend.

The race thing as you call it does not look broken compared to mine. I don't see that you can put it back in wrong there should only be one way it would fit. The point goes to the back under the feed dogs.

Oily cotton when stitching


Oily Cotton:
1. Remove the bobbin case.
2. Wipe out the oil.
3. Bobbin case rides unto an area that looks like a race track. (Called Race). Wipe out oil.
4. After cleaning oil out take a drop and place unto race.
5. Replace bobbin. (Wipe oil if there is any.)
6. Remove oil from the needle arm. (Goes up and down holding unto the needle.)
7. Replace a small amount of oil on the needle arm.
The sewing the machine should sew very well. It may have some resistance when you turn the hand wheel by hand. Likely, this is due to the machine being new and not being broke in. Otherwise, it would need to be lubricated throughout the machine. Give it while!

Baby Lock Espire Bobbin Casing Rotating Out of Position


try changing the needle--one that is correct for the fabric being sewed

make sure the top thread has not come off the thread take up lever

try taking the bobbin out (make sure to notice which way the
bobbin is turned ) and turn the bobbin the opposite way, and put it back into the bobbin case,, cause one way you put the bobbin in will
cause it to jam the other way it will sew.

I would definitely call the repair man and ask him exactly what he did
to the machine as far as maintenance? some just clean alittle , yes, I
would ask him if he knew about the bobbin case or hook and hook race
or shuttle which every one you have being 90 degrees off.
I've had others say that they took their machine to be serviced and
then they got it back they had the same problem.

Where to oil my singer 2263 ?


The 2263 only needs oil on the hook race (below the bobbin case). The complete cleaning procedure for this area is, with the needle fully up, remove the bobbin case and rotate the arms that hold the hook outwards. Remove the hook cover and the hook. Wipe the area under the hook cover and hook with a soft cloth. Put 1-2 drops of sewing machine oil just to the right of the center of this area. Rotate the hand wheel until the hook race is on the left side of the bobbin area. Then replace the hook and hook cover. Snap the arms back towards the center and insert the bobbin in the bobbin case.

With the bobbin out and the needle up, you should also unscrew the faceplate and wipe the feed dogs with your machine brush. (For best results, clean this before you oil. If you do not do this first, you may brush lint and bits of thread into the hook race and risk jamming this part.)

For pictures, see http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1213_oiling-2263.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I took out the inner workings of the bobbin holder underneath the machine to try to clean out some clogged up thread, but I can't seem to get it back together. Suggestions?


You should have 3 pieces that make up the parts of the hook and bobbin case that you can take out to clean. 1 the bobbin case, 2 the race ring, 3 the hook. The easiest way to reinstall the hook and race ring is to tilt the machine and lay it on it's back. If you have the bobbin door open, and you rotate the handwheel and look inside the hook area, you will see the driver rotating back and forth. You want to set the hook inside the hook housing facing opposite the driver. As if your putting two halves together. Next install the race ring, shinny side out. Most of the rings have a nipple at the bottom that fits into a slot in the hook housing. Next lock the race ring in place with the 2 black or chrome arms that you swing inward. All you do next is install the bobbin case. Your done.

The needle shaft wont go up or down when I step on the foot pedal and I cannot turn the wheel to try to do it manually.


If you can not turn the handwheel at all there is a bind in the machine somewere. The most comon place that this will happen is in the hook/bobbin/race area. Follow these steps and it may fix your problem.
Remove needle and bobbin case.
We need to open the race and remove the hook. (The race is the black round part that the bobbin goes inside.)
On the left part of the race there is a small steel clip that you push to the left and it should fall open.
Then remove the hook, it may have fallen out alreay. (It is just right behind the race.)
Clean out that area and make sure there is no broken needle/lint/ ect.
Test to see if handwheel is moving freely with the parts out.
If so lubricate the hook and put it all back together. Should be ready to sew.
Hook needs to be lubricated every 2-3 bobbins

If this does not fix it probably will need to take it in for repair.
Also check to make sure your bobbin winder is not on (I dont think that is it but ill mention it).
Hope this helps

Putting bobbin back


you need to set the hook (1/2 moon shaped object) in first. That sits inside the circle. The round race sets in over top of the hook, a lot of times there is a pin or slot that has to match up on the race. Then slide the little arms back into place and you are all set.

I need help with putting my bobbin case back in my machine


Mine wasn't snapping in properly either. I took out the hook race cover and hook and put them back in. Then, the bobbin case was able to snap in. Be sure to hold it by the hinged part and have the small part that sticks out pointing up.

Bobbin tension


If the looping is happening on the underside, it is your top tension that is to blame, conversely looping on top is bobbin tension.........take a look HERE for detail on cleaning lint buildup.

Top tension should be set around the middle of the range, usually 4 - 6.

I would not advise playing with bobbin tensions, however, you can take the needle plate off to clean the hook race area (where bobbin case sits) ...this is good housekeeping, my wife does this every time she replaces the bobbin....just take it out and clean the bobbin case and the fixed metal hook race with a small brush to remove lint, if there appears to be fine dirty deposits, a cloth or cotton bud (Q tip) moistened (not soaked) with methylated spirit will do the trick.
