Question about Singer Sewing Machines
Posted by Anonymous on
Remove the faceplate, bobbin and case. See if you can see the bottom part of the needle. Use a flashlight to look down in the bobbin area. Put a magnet on a pair of long tweezers to magnify it. You can then gently move the tweezers around to grab hold of the broken needle.

SOURCE: Needle & Bobbin out of sync
This description sounds like the machine is out of time. The needle should match up with a cut out section in the bottom of the bobbin area. If it is hitting, the timing has slipped, probably from sewing on a fabric that was too heavy for the machine.

SOURCE: The thread is bunching up
Your problem stems from the faulty foot lever mechanism. It's coupled to the upper thread tension control which only provides tension when the presser foot is in the locked down position.
If the presser foot won't positively engage in the down position, there's no upper thread tension and the thread bunches up below. Everything else stems from there. If the needle has hit the bobbin case too frequently then the bobbin timing may also be slightly out and the needle itself will be damaged and won't pass straight through the fabric; it only takes a tiny deflection from the vertical as it passes through the workpiece for the needle to flex and hit the bobbin case.
In summary, your machine is in desperate need of repair and adjustment. You haven't stated which exact Singer model you have, but they are usually easy to get servicing manuals for or you can take the machine to a sewing machine servicing specialist. Most singer spare parts (even for 100 year old machines) are usually still available fairly cheaply from a variety of sources, just enter "Singer spares" into your search engine to find suppliers.
To prevent re-occurrence, clean the mechanism regularly and lubricate it as directed by the manufacturer using sewing machine oil. Depending on how often you use the machine, do (or have done) a more thorough service periodically to check the timing and also that all mechanism screws remain tightly fastened.

I had this problem and it is very easy to fix!
With mine I looked at it for about half an hour, and all I needed to do was put the bobbin case back in,(how it fits normally) and then hold it and turn it anti clockwise until it clicks, it may be quite pressured to do but ive heard a lot of people having this problem and thats all that needed doing!
Hope i helped! :)
