Re: Threading my sewing machine

Go to And type the model number in the manual search. Reading your message again, it might be that you have already downloaded the free one. Sorry if this is case. There is however a generic threading guide here Hope this helps a little! Regards

I have a singer CG 590C. It didn't come with manual. I'm just learning to sew. My bobbin was hung up with thread when I pulled on it I pull the whole bobbin casing out. How do I get it back in? Help

First thing, you should probably get a manual for your machine.

How to thread Singer CG 590

This machine is listed as a commercial grade professional sewing machine, so you are going to have some additional learning curve if you are just beginning to sew.

What should the tension be on for this machine?

Most of the time if the bobbin thread is coming through on top it means that the bobbin thread is too loose and/or the top thread is too tight and is pulling the thread too much. check and make sure that there isn't anything in the top tensioner that could be increasing the tension like lint. Good luck.

How do i fix the timing on my sewing machine

To do it properly you'll need the service manual. You can buy one (it's dowloadable!) here:

I was having the same problem and this worked out beautifully. I also adjusted the needle drive shaft height before I reset the timing. While you're at it, check the hook timing belt tension.

I just purchased a singer cg-550/500 and after threading the machine and inserting the filled bobbin, I was unable to bring up the bobbin thread with the needle. I followed the instructions carefully but...

if im not mistaken, the bobbin when you place it in the bottom, you have to thread it is as well to the part where the needle comes down and collects and goes back up. please re-look at instructions for placement of bobbin

Excess bobbin thread under the fabric

I know you hate to hear this but you are probably threading it incorrectly. Make sure that the presser foot is in the up position when you thread the machine. This ensures that the tension discs are open and the thread makes it in between the disc.
