Threading my sewing machine

Aloha, My husband gave me a beautiful commercial grade Singer CG-550. This is my first time sewing and I don't have a user guide. I downloaded a sewing machine "workbook", but it doesn't have the basic stuff to get started...and outline the parts of the machine. I need to know how do I thread the machine?? And can I get a user guide for it?? Mahalo plenty, anela

    I inherited a Brother XL-2610 from a friend that no longer sews. There is no user manual with it and I need to know how to thread it. Does anyone have a user manual or one that I can download?

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.

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.

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.
