Singer 2662 bobbin case keeps popping out.


Check our bobbin for burrs and damage. If the thread catches a rough edge it can pop the bobbin out. Try a different bobbin with new thread... see if that helps. If it does your current bobbin is likely trash.

Hope that helps.

How to thread the bobbin


Are you trying to thread the bobbin for winding or for sewing?

For sewing, make sure the needle is fully up and then release the bobbin cover plate. Insert the bobbin so that the bobbin rotates counter-clockwise. Pull the thread through the slot at the center-front of the bobbin case. Hold down the bobbin with a finger then bring the thread to the left and through the slot on that side. You should here a clicking sound when you pull on the thread. Leave 6" of thread free and replace the cover plate. Refer to the manual (page 12) for pictures.

Many Singer sewing machine manuals are available for sale or download here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual for the 2662 is here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/429_2662_efs.pdf . See page 11 and 12.

If the bobbin thread isn't feeding, clean the hook and surrounding area. Then with the presser foot down, retry. If you aren't hearing the clicking sound when the thread is pulled, you may need the bobbin tension adjusted. There is a small set screw for the adjustment but it's really easy to damage the threads. If you still have a problem, the bobbin case or shuttle race may need to be replaced (See http://parts.singerco.com/CPpartCharts/2_2999/2662.pdf for the parts breakdown).

I hope this helps.

The needle thread will not pick up the bobbin thread. the bobbin mechanism turns but it doesnt catch the thread.


Most of the time, it is because of the needle. Try a new needle and make sure that the flat side is facing the rear. Hope this helps you,

Needle will not pick up bobbin thread when sewing


double check the upper and lower tensions they often need to be changed to suit types of fabric and threads

Top thread is loose


Your needle thread tension is too tight or the bobbin tension is too loose. If it is the latter try turning the bobbin case tension adjusting screw clockwise abot a full revolution.
If that does not work there is more than likely a bit of lint behind the tension spring, so carefully remove it and clean it out.

Singer 2662 winds bobbin only half full.


there is an adjustment on the bobbin winder. Just bend the little spring flap that rides inside the bobbin while winding. Bend it up a little. The flap being pushed up is what releases the shut off

A horrible tangle


This is a bit late, could the bobbin case not be seated properly? You need to put it into place and then turn it clockwise until it seats soundly in the opening. Also, check for burrs...the needle may have left a rough mark on the plastic or metal in the bobbin area. A piece of batting, or even an old knee hi should snag on any rough areas.
