Question about Singer 2263 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Singer 5830c bobbin issue, my machine tends to eat the back right prong of the bobbin holder, I've been through way too many of them. Before hand it sounds like it's jumping around in its place, and the tension gets screwy so it doesn't sew cleanly but leaves a tangled mess on the under side of the fabric. I've taken it for service on this issue several times, but it always comes back. I've checked the needle is in right way and high enough,I've played with tension dials what else can I try?

Are you using a quality thread (top and bobbin) and is the bobbin a genuine bobbin?
Change needle regularly - do not use blunt or recycled needles. Correct needle for type of fabric

SOURCE: tangled bobbin thread

Okay. I had this problem too. try taking the bobbin casing out. I had a bit of thread lintg caught in a remote area of the under-plate area. Blow it out with canned air and oil your machine. That should help. It fixed mine.

How do Iinstall the Bobbin holder in na Singer tiny taylor machine?


I"m assuming that you are asking how to reinsert the bobbin case, rather than the bobbin itself. If you don't have your user's manual, you can download it free at the Singer website. When you do, look on page 19; it has exact directions and an illustration there regarding how to reinsert the bobbin case.

Machine is out of time


This will be difficult to explain but basically if you remove the plate covering the bobbin holder you will see the bobbin holder.It will have a small prong that should pass the eye of the needle and picks up the thread from the needle. If the timing is out then this pick up prong will be either too soon or will have gone past the eye. get on the web and type in sewing machine needle timing and you will get diagrams for most makes. I did that and fixed an old singer industrial machine.

Need to put bobin in a merritt 4530


Flip the presser switch up to raise the presser foot. Turn the hand wheel counterclockwise until the needle is in its highest position.
  • 2Hold the hand wheel in place with your left hand while turning the hand wheel knob counterclockwise with your right hand to loosen the hand wheel knob.
  • 3Place the desired spool of thread on the spool pin so that the pin fits all the way through the hole in the center of the spool. Put the spool holder onto the end of the spool pin that is sticking through the spool of thread and press firmly to ensure that the spool holder keeps the spool in place.
  • 4Grasp the end of the thread and hold it taut between the thumb and index fingers of both hands. Snap the taut section of thread into the thread guide post located to the left of the spool pin.
  • 5Pull the end of the thread gently. Wrap the thread around the bobbin winder tension disk near the left front on top of the machine, starting at the side of the tension disk facing you and wrapping around in a clockwise direction.
  • 6Poke the end of the thread through the small hole in the bobbin from the inside out so that the loose end of the thread sticks through the top of the bobbin. Put the bobbin on the spindle, or bobbin winder, and gently slide the bobbin winder to the right.
  • 7Hold the loose end of the thread in place while pressing down on the foot pedal to start the machine. Hold the foot pedal down until the bobbin is as full as desired. The machine will automatically stop once the bobbin has reached capacity.
  • 8Cut the loose end of the thread using scissors. Slide the bobbin winder to the left and remove the bobbin. Hold the hand wheel in your left hand and tighten the hand wheel knob with your right hand by turning it clockwise

    When i'm sewing the bobbin holder jumps out of place the needle then lodges it's self in casing and locks machine up,i have replaced the casing/holder and it did the same thing again


    It sounds like the wrong size bobbin, try calling Singer is your bobbin is right because they should be able to answer why it is acting so strange. Good luck

    Singer/merritt 2430 bobbin fill


    If you lift up the thread holder, the bobbin holder is inside. Loosen the hand guide to stop the needle from going up and down. Pull the thread around the top thread guide and back into the bobbin holder. Thread the bobbin and move the bobbin over so the guage is "inside" the bobbin. As for the manual, the Singer Merritt 2404 is applicable to the 2430 if that helps.
