Help with threading info for a Singer 5040c

I am out of town and did not bring my manual and my singer has started messing up. It was doing well on the zig zag stich, but I have changed the thread several times and I don't know if I have missed something. It is loose on the bottom and tight on top. And I have several things to finish before I go home, so would appreciate any help.
Thank you,

    Been sewing away on my Singer 5040c and all of a sudden the bottom thread is looping up all over and the tension is not right. When I adjust the tension knob, nothing happens! Help, why is the bottom thread all messed up? I made sure I threaded it correctly...????

I have the same problem. Driving me nuts. The tension dial is broken, as far as I can tell. Just craps out from time to time. Sometimes turning it on and off helps. I personally think it's a problem with the electronic controls.

How to thread singer model #AJ953185 sewing machine


To thread the upper thread of the sewing machine, place your spool on the spool holder. Then work from right to left after turning the hand wheel to bring the take-up lever to its highest point. Bring the thread to the left to the first thread guide and then go down. Bring the thread down and between the thread tension discs (down on the right and up on the left). Hold the spool tightly and pull the thread against the take up spring until the thread enters the retaining fork (at about 11 o'clock on a 12-hour clock) at the thread disc area. Pass the thread from right to left through the hole in the take-up lever. Bring the thread down through the guide on the face plate and then through the guides at the needle bar bushing and needle clamp. Put the thread through the eye of the needle (again from right to left).

AJ953185 is the serial number of the machine. It should be a model Singer 201 built after Nov. 6 1950. Most Singer manuals are available here: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual to the 201 is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/651_201.pdf . For a picture of the upper threading diagram see page 11 (page 12 of the PDF). The bobbin threading pattern is on pages 14-15 (pages 15-16 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

Do you have your manual? Because it is almost always the top threading, either tangled thread or a bent or dull needle causing the problem. You can download your manual at www.singerco.com for free and enlarge the detail of the diagrams for threading. I just hope that it is something simple and not your timing because that is not a do it yourself job, unfortunately. You can also call Singer customer service at 1-800-4singer. and get their advice. Good luck.

Singer futura 250. while sewing the E4 code


Are you using bobbin thread? Is your thead new? Is themachine threaded correctly?

Make sure that when you thread the upper part the thread go under the circle that pull it.

Another thing is that when you hit the start button, pull the upper thread until the machine goes two or three times. It helps the bobbin thread to come up and the machine start sewing.I you leave it along the thread sometimes doesnot comes up and that is why the machine beeps.

I use this technique to make sure it doesnt beep and to cut the thread (the one at the beginning so it doesn't mess my design)
