What is the correct Bobbin model for Singer 2639?

Posted by Anonymous on

  • Sue Archer Aug 09, 2013

    Use a size 15 bobbin. I just fixed my friends multitude of problems. I don't know why or how she got a size 66 bobbin for it, but when I switched to the correct bobbin most of the problems stopped.

    P.S. I just looked it up on a Singer sight on the computer 15J. Manual doesn't say what size.

SOURCE: My Singer 2639 Bobbin case

Hi, I used to have the same problem. I pulled the whole bobin casing out, cleaned it oiled it. When I put it back in, I made sure the actual bobin was turing the right direction so the cotton didnt snag and pull casing up.

If you havent already tried this give it a go.Its amazing how much gunk gets in there.

SOURCE: Machine will not pick up the bobbin thread.

if your machine's needle threads from front to back, make sure that the flat part of the needle shank points to the rear of the machine. If it threads from left to right, the flat side should face right, etc.

Also make sure that you pulled the buttonholer lever down and pushed it back (it's on the left side of the presser foot) ... the machine won't make the forward and backward motions to form the buttonhole without it.

SOURCE: Singer Sewing Machine model 9224. Bobbin thread

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.

Let me know.

My needle will not pick up bobbin thread on my singer protege model 2639

Try installing a brand new needle.

If it still will not work, most likely the machine has been knocked out of time. Take it for service.

I 've been using this 2639 Singer since 2006. It was working perfect until one day the bobbin case popped up away from the shuttle causing the needle to be blocked from moving. So, I removed the p

First change that needle. It's likely bent. A bent needle won't create a stitch.

Then double check your timing. It sounds like you have it ******** a bit... But that's hard to determine from a description. Before you start the timing process, make sure that your needle bar is in the correct position. (typically the upper timing mark on the needle bar is just below the lower needle bar guide when the needle is at its very lowest point) If necessary loosen the needle bar holder and make a correction. Once the needle bar is positioned correctly... then move on to the shuttle/needle timing.

Good luck!

Model 2639 you can hear it working, but the needle does not move at all

Check your bobbin winder mechanism that it is disengaged. Go to and go to customer support.

The bobbin case keeps sliding and popping out in the middle of sewing something. I'm having to unscrew the bobbin cover plate and put it back in on an average of four times each time I sew.

This is a real bummer! check to be sure you have inserted the bobbin case fully and correctly. Make sure there is no lint hiding behind the bobbin case.

Buttonholer on Singer 2639 sewing straight ahead

set you machine for "zigzag" then: try your buttonholer again.
Also; the thread tension can be adjusted by a small screw in the side of the bobbin for the bottom loop of the stich or, the tensioner on the side of the machine head for the top loop
