SOURCE: upper thread breaking on singer machine

Check that your bobbin thread is not wound too tightly or too loose. Also adjust your tension down a click at a time until it stops breaking, testing on scrap fabric. Singer provided manuals online. Look it up here:

SOURCE: I have a simple singer 2263. I have now realized I

Oddly, this came up when i googled" troubleshoot singer 2263". but since I'm here...

This expenxive knick knack is a joke, except it's not funny.

We should get Michael Moore to make a movie. Singer sould be ashamed of themselves. The brand our grand & great grandmother's ached for & 90% of could not manage to purchase.

What with pandemics, wars & depression (not the type treated by Celebrex)

I got 1 for Christmas, YAY (I thought)

It worked exactly 92 days, (warranty is 90, & parts only)

Singer (who do not deserve to have their name capatalized) said take it to a singer dealer, ($80.00 to look @ , machine cost $90.00, later saw it on sale for $68.73).

The vendor did exchange it,

I took this exact replacement home, set it up, never sewed 1 stitch.

The bobbin thread was wrapping around the spool pin.

The box was gone, the receipt inside.

I took it back the next day. Vendor would not exchange.

So I''m going in...this was not my plan.

If I can't get it, I'm going to small claims court, as I do have proof of purchase on per my credit card.

I'll be back!

"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

Singer sewing machine. Have dusted, oiled adjusted over and over. May work OK a bit, then goes back to breaking thread so back looks like hair. Seems like thread getting caught in shuttle?

Sounds like there could be a burr or nick somewhere that is catching the thread and shredding it. Change the needle. Wrap your index finger with some fine fabric (old hosiery, chiffon, silk) and run it around inside the machine around the bobbin/shuttle, feed dogs, needleplate, presser foot. If there is a burr, you will probably find it. If it is minor, it can be smoothed with a fine emery board or fine sand paper. If it is major, you may need to replace the part.

I am having trouble getting the tension ajusted on my sewing machine and don't know what to do. My machine is an inspiration singer sewing machine have had this problem before but always was able to fix it...

You may want to start with a thorough cleaning and oiling. Be sure there is no thread caught in the bobbin case or shuttle, or upper tension springs. Check that your bobbin is wound evenly and with good tension, and that your needle is in right. The quality of your thread may have an effect, as well.

I just got a new Singer Simple. I had a problem with the needle thread getting caught in the bobbin shuttle. I disassembled this area, found a random thread, and cleaned it out. I put it all back together...

Do you have the bobbin thread going the right way, according to owners manual some go clock wise some go counter clock wise when you pull the thread after bobbin inserted in bobbin case

Hi, I have a singer simple the top thread is fine but the lower thread bunches and now the needle broke and I can't more the wheel

A piece of that needle is probably caught in the shuttle area and your top threading was not right. Take out your bobbin and clean that area real good, then rethread. Always turn the wheel towards you. If, that doesn't help call Singer at 1-800-4singer customer service

Thread continuously getting ****/caught in shuttle

My first thought would be to check the threading on the top, all though it may look right undo it and redo it its real easy to get the tread behind the tension discs, instead of between them. If all that is right check your upper tension, but not until you have rethreaded it.
