Necchi 3537 manual is useless. How do I put bobbin shuttle hook back into the machine?


HINT: before you install the shuttle, make sure to place a drop of sewing machine oil around the outer edge of the shuttle and lightly spread it around the outer edge (you should do this about every time you change a bobbin). Sorry, you'll probably need to be familiar with removing and installing the shuttle. Have patience! Once you've done it a couple of times, you'll wonder why it was so difficult.

It usually helps if you can tilt the machine back about 45 degrees so it is supported by something (pillow, cushion) so you can get good visibility into the bobbin area.

Raise the needle so that the take-up bar is at its highest point.

Make sure the outer hinged door on the shuttle area is open. Inside that open door is a metal unit that is shaped like a "C". The shuttle makes up the other part of the "C". The two C's face each other and complete the circle. Grasp the shuttle by the projecting bobbin pin. (Perhaps the photo & videos will help you in placing the shuttle (you'll probably need to wiggle it around a little until it pops into place.) Once the shuttle has snapped into place and you've closed and latched the outer cover, you can install the bobbin case.

Upper line tension too loose


Tangling on the bottom of the cloth is always caused by one of these:

Upper thread is not threaded correctly.
Upper thread tension is too loose.
Using too thick thread.

Sometimes caused by:
Damaged plastic bobbin case

Rarely caused by:
Shuttle out of time
Burr on the shuttle

It is NEVER caused by the bobbin tension, so don't touch it.

How to put string into the shuttle


I take it you have a shuttle with a bobbin inside. Remove bobbin and attach it to the bobbin winder by the balance wheel, wind bobbin and while holding shuttle point downwards drop the into the shuttle, pull thread down to the bottom of side slot and then straight up under tension spring, load shuttle back into machine pointed towards you tension screw up

The needle won't pick up the bobbin thread? Seems


I think you mean the shuttle is not picking up the top thread. There are many reasons why this can happen. The best way to find out which is to leave the cover off the bobbin compartment and turn the machine slowly by hand while watching things happen for a few cycles - best to have a piece of material in place as well (but not in your line of sight).
As the needle begins to rise, the top thread should form a loop for the shuttle to pick up. If no loop forms, the needle could be too fat for the thread, the thread could be sticking to the needle, the pick-up arm could be out of time (unlikely), or the thread tension could be wrong (or the machine not threaded correctly).
If a loop forms, but the shuttle does not pick up up, the needle could be bent (take it off and roll it on a flat surface),or in backwards (loop forming opposite to shuttle), or the material (or your manner of feeding it) causing the needle to be deflected away from the shuttle. On some machines, it is also possible to loosen a clamp and move the shuttle closer to the needle, but obviously that is a last resort (unless it has come loose or been forced away).
There are other possibilities, but usually it's the simplest thing. Try changing the needle?

How do I fix timimg on a singer 2263


There should be one or two set screws behind the bobbin shuttle, they could also be in the bobbin shuttle. You will loosen them st the timing and then retighten them. The Timing on a sewing machine is really straight forward, but that doesn't mean its not a pain in the but. When the needle is at the bottom of its travelthe hook on the shuttle should be coming around to meet the needle. As the needle starts back up it will create a loop in the thread for that hook to catch. Therefore the needle needs to start up before that hook is directlly in line with the needle. But the hook has to be above the eye of the neelde. So rotate it back and forth with no thread and watch to see when the hook passes the needle. It will probably take several attempts but you can do it. Do it in small movements. and only tighten the set screws enough to hold the shuttle in place to check it. Do not forget to retighten them.

Can't put back the bobbin case in a singer 7442, it get sotck


Put the bobbin into the case so the thread is feeding clock wise and through the guide on the case.

Lift the lever to hold the bobbin in place.

Insert the bobbin case into the race/shuttle, still holding the lever out.

Align the finger on the bobbin case with the opening in the race/shuttle.

You may have to turn the bobbin case a bit to the left or right for it to line up.

Once it clicks into place it should work without any further problems.

I need to know how to clean and oil the machine


From the Sears Kenmore manual:
Using a small brush, remove the lint that accumulates in the shuttle area and around the feed dogs.
To Clean the Shuttle Area:
  1. This area must be kept free of dust, lint and occasional tangled thread. Raise the needle bar to its highest point and remove the bobbin case.
  2. Push levers of shuttle race aside and lift shuttle race cover and shuttle out.
  3. Clean the shuttle race with a small brush.
  4. Put a drop of oil on the center pin of the shuttle and shuttle race.

Can't reassemble shuttle hook and shuttle race


the hook driver (still in machine) is 1/2 moon shape. The hook is also 1/2 moon shape. If you set the machine on its back, it's easier. Set the hook 1/2 into the other 1/2 of the hook driver to make a circle. Then put the hook cover on (machine still on its back) with the tabs for the twist locks pointed out. Needle gaurd to the top of the machine. Snap the twist locks in place and viola!
