Replaced Singer 5932 bobbin case, need help. *pics*

The bobbin case of my Singer 5932 broke, bought a replacement but I can't seem to get in installed correctly. It seems like the bobbin case is making a lot more noise than usual, but it is sewing OK.

Can someone please look at these photos I took and let me know if
I have the bobbin case installed correctly?


Many thanks!

There may be uneeded friction occuring. are you sure you inserted it correctly? sorry. photos aren;t appearing. but it may be that it is the wrong type or in the wrong place. do some trial and error and fit it into different positions on the bobbin runner

I have a singer 248 the needle broke and i replaced it now it seems the bobbin case is out of line as the needle is hitting it. My question is how do i reline the bobbin case??

When the needle broke, it could have caused the needle/hook timing to lose its timing. There are web sites and videos that show how to repair it yourself, or you may just want to take it in for service.

Could be that your bobbin thread is wound too tightly and having a problem pulling thread from it. Try setting the pressure on bobbin a bit less and that may cure it.

My singer 5932 auto bobbin winder is not working?

Make sure that something like your buttonhole lever or button for a twin needle are not down (if you have them). You can get it fixed, but you can also just buy a Simplicity bobbin winder for under $25, that actually does a better job anyway.

Singer 4562 t bobbin case won't fit properly, what am I doing wro

Make sure the bobbin case sets sort of on top and not under the ridge of the metal ring. There is a small latch on the upper left of the bobbin case. It is metal. rotate the latch to cover the bobbin case and this should stabilize the case without making it immobile

Broken plastic black peice sits down by bobbin (singer 81 on it)

This is an Apollo bobbin case and most sewing machine dealers will have them. Costs less than $20.
When you install it you will find a finger with a slot in it(located about 10'clock) that must be turned to the left to open it before the case will go back in.
