Singer Prelude 8280 Sewing Machine stuck

When I press the foot pedal down, the machine starts "whrring" like it's gonna start sewing. But the needle gets stuck like there is a problem with it going up and down. I move the needle with the wheel on the side of the machine, and it is stiff. Is there something i am supposed to be oiling? I checked the bobbin and it is all clean. There is no threads stuck or anything. In fact, I just put a newly threaded bobbin in the machine. Please Help!!!!

Is the knob on the side, where you loosen the needle to rewind the bobbin, tightened? Also, there may be some threads in the bobbin case messing things up. Unplug the machine if you are checking the bobbin case.

    Yes it is...I took the needle out and cleaned off the pole thingie (LOL) and cleaned out the Bobbin casing and all that. My machine will not even wind thread on a new bobbin. My machine winds the bobbins on the top. Any ideas?

Singer confience stylist beeps four time and won't let me sew


The beeps usually indicates that your machine is not ready to sew which probably means a function has been left in the activated mode, ie bobbin winder, buttonhole function, etc. . Here are some ideas:

Foot pedal not working


Well, you are definitely getting power from the electric plug in.

Let's do some diagnostic work. Do you hear anything when you press the foot pedal? Any hum? Did you happen to leave it in bobbin winding mode?

your machine doesn't have a "sew" button for use without the pedal. So please rotate the hand wheel toward you as you press the pedal. Did the motor take over and sew?

If you know someone with a meter... have them test the pedal. (they will place probes on/in the part that plugs in which tests for shorts, etc.) If that tests ok... then we know it's something more than the pedal and it will need servicing by a Singer Tech.

I've lost my regular foot for my Singer prelude 8280. I'm looking for a reasonable one online. Can anyone help? Thanks.


Any snap on foot will fit, at least that is what it looks like in your manual. (I looked it up for free at www.singerco.com, under customer support, instruction manuals to download.) You can order from Singer direct or go to www.sewingpartsonline.com search under presser feet and order any one you want under snap on presser feet. They run approx. $14.95 each

I have had a singer prelude 8280 for a year now with no problems. now all the sudden the thread is catching in the bobbin casing. The thread on top looks normal, but when you turn over the fabric...


It is in your top threading, try this test, rethread, now with the presser foot up, pull the top thread, it should feed smoothly, now lower the presser foot, it should barely move. Sometimes this seats the thread in the tension discs. Also, make sure that your needle is fresh.

Just purchased this model today and it has no blind hem foot. Instruction manual telle me I need to purchase from local dealer. Can this be odered on line? Manual quotes number 006812008 is this...


You can order from Singer at 1-800-4singer or ebay. On ebay they start at about $14 + $2 for shipping. Just put in "blind hem foot for Singer and you will see a variety of them. Take your pick. I don't know what Singer charges. JoAnn fabrics may carry them or a sewing machine retailer but anyway you do it, it is not expensive. Just remember that you have a low shank machine. Good luck and happy sewing.

Can't get the wheel on my Singer Prelude to turn forward. I can push it back though. The machines not even threaded. What's going on?


Chances are there is a small piece of thread stuck in the raceway area, you need to have a good look it might be very smakk but small enough to stop the machine
