Reinstalling Shuttle/Bobbin Case

Now machine won't work. Followed illustations in manual under "cleaning shuttle" but the fabric keeps jamming and it sounds like the bobbin isn't securely positioned. Help?

its the problem of the timing belt in your machine its extra loosen or extra tightned or is slightly came out of its position or finally broken.
as the machine is proper just missing the proper speed as it should be .
it is running continuosly as you stated.
check the timing belt and make it proper if its worn out and needs replacement this is how its done

There is an adjusting screw on the right side of the machine head. Follow the motor bracket to the machine head and loosen that big old screw or bolt which will raise or lower the motor giving you slack to remove or replace the belt.

feel free for further queries

SOURCE: Top & bobbin thread will not sew

Most likely the needle is in backwards. Weird I know, I have no idea why but if the needle is in wrong, it either hits the bobbin and breaks or won't grab the thread at all. Good luck.

SOURCE: mass bunching of thread in the bobbin compartment

it had nothing to do with the shuttle, it is the upper thread is not in the tensioner. lift the presser foot up and thread the machine even if you have to hold the thread on the top and pull on the bottom to make it go in the tensioner it will help, if a machine loops on the bottom it is the upper tension if it loops on the top it is the lower tension

My sewing machine does not move at all

Is the bobbin winder on? If so, turn it off.
Otherwise, is there power to the machine?
And this happened while you were sewing? Cut the thread above the needle eye. Rock the handwheel back and forth firmly to try to cut the thread jam below the needle plate with the sewing hook. If that doesn't work, open the bobbin case area of the machine and try to pull the bobbin case out, cutting any threads you can see with a seam ripper. Still won't come? Take the needle out of the needle clamp and throw it away (it's bent!), and take the screws out of the needle plate (=throat plate) and take the needle plate off after cutting any threads you can reach under the fabric. Keep cutting and pulling out any thread you find, and eventually, you'll be able to turn the handwheel. Clean all the thread bits, lint, and junk out of the area under the needle plate, the bobbin and bobbin case, and the shuttle area... there will be directions in your manual on how to clean the machine, including the shuttle area. Reassemble. Put in a brand new needle, right way around and fully up in the needle clamp. Rethread from scratch.
Always hold the thread ends behind the presser foot for the first couple of stitches of each seam.

I have a SINGER 2263. I've used this machine less than ten hrs. I have a jam, I've cleaned everything. The machine will turn un-restricted in reverse but forward half a cycle. The needle will either...

With the machine unplugged, remove the bobbin case and the shuttle mechanism. Clean and oil it. Check for any fabric or threads in your feed dogs. Change needles in case that one is bent slightly. If the jam was really bad, you may have messed up the timing, unfortunately.

I think the timing is off on my singer 7430 -- it keeps breaking needles and I can see where the needle hits the bottom of the bobbin casing when it is in the fully down position -- any quick fix?

Drop-in bobbin?

Refer to the maintenance section of the manual for cleaning.

Raise the needle to it's highest position and remove the bobbin and bobbin case.

Clean the shuttle and replace the bobbin case, noting the graphic in the instruction manual for aligning the case into the shuttle.

Turn the handwheel to see if the needle now clears the outer edge of the bobbin case.

Bobin will not thread up..does not turn

Refer to the manual for removing the bobbin case and race/shuttle. Clean the area. Read the instructions to be sure the race/shuttle is properly reinstalled.

If the bobbin remains jammed, a service tech will need to look at it.

Lower thread tangles and machine then locks up

I have the same problem. When I take it to my shop, they keep telling me there is a special order for reinstalling the shuttle case and plates on top but I get home and can't duplicate what they've told me. If you figure this one out, please let me know.
