Question about Singer 8280 Mechanical Sewing Machine

Open Question

Singer Prelude 8280 jammed while threading bobbin. You cannot rotate the hand wheel. What is the most likely problem? My machine jammed when I was sewing, and I have the same problem--it won't let me rotate the wheel, and I can't find anything in the way underneath the bobbin.

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.

Singer Prelude 8280 Sewing Machine stuck


Is the knob on the side, where you loosen the needle to rewind the bobbin, tightened? Also, there may be some threads in the bobbin case messing things up. Unplug the machine if you are checking the bobbin case.

Why is my singer SEWING MACHINE prelude HAND WHEEL RESISTING


Make sure the bobbin winder is in the position away from the bobbin stopper. When you fill a bobbin, you have to push the "spindle" towards the handwheel. If you do not push the "spindle" back into position (away from the handwheel), the wheel will remain locked.

Singer sewing machine 8280 handwheel jammed while stitching. It will go backwards, but not forward, happened while sewing, thread jammed up. cleaned out but still won't advance.


Turn the hand wheel HARD in the direction it was traveling. Then remove the thread and the needle and run it full speed for 20 seconds to put it back in time.

You could have a thread jam in the machine, try cleaning and lubricating and if that don't do it Call Singer at 1-800-4singer and see if it is covered under warranty.

I have had a singer prelude 8280 for a year now with no problems. now all the sudden the thread is catching in the bobbin casing. The thread on top looks normal, but when you turn over the fabric...


It is in your top threading, try this test, rethread, now with the presser foot up, pull the top thread, it should feed smoothly, now lower the presser foot, it should barely move. Sometimes this seats the thread in the tension discs. Also, make sure that your needle is fresh.

Machine is jamming


You need to remove the bobbin from the "race" by following the instructions in the manual. Give it a good clean and remove any bits of fluff and thread. Remove the upper thread also andmake sure that the tension wheel is clear of any broken threads and is on the correct setting. It may have been threaded wrong. The hand wheel not turning sounds like the bobbin area is jammed also.

I have model 8280 and the bobbin thread keeps bunching up on the bottom. I have tried to rethread it but it keeps happening.


i think your putting in your bobin backwards,
to check put your bobin in and hold bobin , and bobin case by thread if it unrolls its backwards,
hope this helps!!
