I can't figure out what the thread guide is on my singer machine to thread the thread through to the needle?

The biggest problem most people face when having troubles pull the bobbin thread up is one of the following.

Wrong needle size (or broken/bent or otherwise damaged needle)
Needle is not fully set into the needle bar.
Needle is not correctly oriented.

Pulling up the bobbin thread is a simple matter of threading the upper thread, and inserting the bobbin with about 6 inches hanging loose. Grasp the top thread lightly.... turn the wheel counter clockwise one full revolution (the needle will go down and back up.) Just pull the top thread slightly and you should see the loop come through the throat plate. Use something like your scissor point to swipe under the presser foot to help retrieve the bobbin thread.

What is the model of your machine?

Upper thread will not catch the bobbin thread

make sure to use every thread guide
try a new needle
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly
if these suggestions don't help & if the machine is still under warrenty take it back & let them check it

Singer 5430C bobbins thread always loopy

"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

Cut thread in the middle of sewing.

The tension of the upper therad is too tight. loosen it by following the instr in the manual
or the upper thread is notspinning off the feel freely while sewing. Make sure the upper thread is not getting cought while sewing,
Ot the upper thread is incorrectly threaded, remove the thread and rethread the machine.
Good Luck.

Under side of fabric.... the thread is a mess

Remove the thread from the upper portion of the machine.

Place the presser foot in the up position.

Turn the handwheel so that the take-up lever is in the highest position.

Ensure that the upper tension dial/knob is set to 5.

Thread the machine all the way and through the needle.

With the presser foot still up, hold the thread from behind the needle and pull about a foot of thread through. It should pull through with very little resistance.

Now lower the presser foot, pull the thread and you should feel great resistance.

If so, now try to sew.

If not, there is a problem with the upper tensioner.

Make sure the needle is in correctly with the flat side to the rear of the machine, make sure to thread the upper and lower portions of the machine correctly. If this does not solve your problem

This error indictaes that the upper thread is broken. If it is not the sensor is telling the computer the thread is broken. Try tightening the upper thread tension some and rethread the upper thread.
