Singer 522. when ever I finish sewing a piece and pull the threads out to cut the bobbin thread always comes out of the case so that when I start up it makes a mess. I have tried tightening the tention...


Sounds like the bobbin case spring is failing to hold the thread firmly - especially if you've already tried to adjust the tension and it hasn't fixed the problem.

I'd suggest you replace the bobbin case, preferrably with a Singer genuine part.

Try this test, with the presser foot down, pull on the top thread, it should feed smoothly, now lower the presser foot, the thread should barely move, when pulled. This sometimes seats the thread in the tension discs. Hope it helps you.

Threading up a bobbin in a singer 560 sewing machine


I'm guessing it's probably the same as mine (8280). This is what the manual says: "Hold the bobbin case with one hand, insert the bobbin so that the thread runs in a clockwise direction. Pull the thread through the **** and under the finger. Hold the bobbin case by the hinged latch and insert into the shuttle." It's hard to describe, but if you've sewn before, it should come back quickly. To be more specific, hold the bobbin case in your left hand, insert the bobbin so the thread is coming up from underneath, pull thread through the **** and into the part where the hole is. If you slide the thread around, it will fit into the slot in there. Pull the latch out and insert it into the shuttle.

Hope this helps.

Could not adjust both looper thread tention on singer ultralock


When servicing these machines I have found that the cover over the tensioners needs to be removed so you can see if there is more adjusting possible. If its a newer serger you would hold the knob somewhere in the middle (4-5) and adjust the knurled part that goes through it. Many times I have had to rebuild these tensioners as they get dirty and need cleaning and adjusting. It may take many tries until you have it adjusting correctly. But it needs to be done.
