NEW MACHINE, THE NEEDLE WON'T PICK UP THE THREAD. WHAT WRONG?

SOURCE: Singer Sewing Machine model 9224. Bobbin thread

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.

Let me know.

How to wind bobbin on model 4411


Do you mean the Singer 4411 Heavy Duty sewing machine? If so,
first place the spool on the spool pin with an appropriate sized spool holder, if you are starting the project. Snap the thread into the thread guide to the left of the of the spool pin. Wrap the thread clockwise around the bobbin winder tension discs (slightly to the left and forward of the thread guide). Bring thread towards the bobbin spindle. Thread the bobbin (put the thread through the hole in the bobbin). Place the bobbin on the spindle with the hole up. Move the bobbin spindle to the right. Hold onto the thread above the bobbin and step on the foot control pedal. When the bobbin finishes winding the thread, cut the thread at the top of the bobbin and the incoming thread from the spool. Move the bobbin spindle to the left and remove the bobbin. If you have already threaded the machine for sewing, you will need to remove it from the various guides and tension discs that are used in sewing. Then after winding the bobbin, re-thread the top thread.

The directions to wind the bobbin are in the manual on page 12 (page 19 of the PDF). You can find many Singer manuals at the Singer support page: https://www.singer.com/support . The 4411 support page is https://www.singer.com/search/support?lp=support&title=4411 . The current link to the manual is https://www.singer.com/sites/default/files/product_manual/SINGER%204411%20Heavy%20Duty%20Sewing%20Machine.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I have just purchased a second hand Singer 6038. When sewing, the machine hesitates about every 15cm of sewing causing the stitch to go off centre. The tension is fine whilst trying various stitches.


I'm wondering if there is a possibility that a puff ball is getting in the tension, needle or bobbin. You might want to look at your thread in the light to see if it is fuzzy. Replace it with good, embroidery thread from someplace other than Walmart. Anyway, do a good cleanup in those areas to ensure there isn't buildup of thread.

Why won't thread stay in the needle?


Is the thread pulling out of the needle when you first begin to sew? If so, be sure you are pulling sufficient thread through the needle at the outset--between 4-6 inches. You can also try bringing the bobbin thread to the top before beginning to stitch.

Singer 6038 tension dial not working


there should be small washers ( discs with a tapered flange to direct the thread between the plates ) if they are not under the spring behind the tension adjuster knob then that will be your problem
if they are there then check that the tread is between the plates and not behind them
missing plates are available from a sewing machine mechanic sgop

Do I need to remove both metal plates from the bottom in order to thread the bobbin???


No, you should only have to turn the hand wheel towards you and you will see that the thread will hook on the bobbin thread if you have your cover off.

How do i put the bobbin case back in correctly?


The zigzag setting should not have caused it to jam up unless the tensions were off and the thread was bunching up on the bottomside of the needle plate. If you ever jam or break a needle be sure to replace it with a fresh new needle. A slightly bent needle will cause all kinds of problems.
When putting the bobbin back in make sure you keep a good amount of thread hanging out and manually turn the hand wheel around until the needle make a full rotation. The hook should catch the needle thread and allow you to pull the bobbin thread out through the needle plate.
If you jammed it really good it is possible that the needle and hook timing is out of sync in which case you may need to have it re-timed.

The fabric gets pulled down into bobbin compartment and thread gets all bunched up hard to remove


It sounds like your bobbin compartment might be pulled out of alignment. You might want to take the bottom plate off, clean off any lint and threads, and put the bottom compartment back in. Follow your manual if you have it. With your right wheel, slowly start to sew is the top or bottom thread having problems? You may have to rethread top and bottom. I found that one time, my top thread was not threaded correctly.

Thread on bottom, bobbin thread loose


Sounds as though you've misthreaded the upper tension. The best way to verify this would be to thread your machine, lower the presser foot on to the material. Now try pulling the thread through the needle. (Assuming your upper tension dial is set to a number greater than one). You should feel resistance. Should you not feel resistance, rethread your upper tension.

I can't find my manual and cn not get the bobbin to thread correctly


you need to insert the bobbin so that when the thread pulls off it spins counter clockwise. on the side closest to you there is a notch that you slip the thread into and then pull along the side towards the back of the machine staying on the left. once you've done that you can manually turn the knob on the side to make the needle cycle down so that the upper thread will pull up the bobbin thread.
