SOURCE: Needle & Bobbin out of sync

This description sounds like the machine is out of time. The needle should match up with a cut out section in the bottom of the bobbin area. If it is hitting, the timing has slipped, probably from sewing on a fabric that was too heavy for the machine.

Send this machine back where it came from! machine. You have described a timing problem which you can not and should not need to do.
Change the needle first and test it to be sure the needle still hits on the hook. If it does,follow the above instructions. If it no longer hits then it's possible it is not as serious as I first thought.I'm not sure if the bobbin keeps coming out or the bobbin case(the plastic part the bobbin sits in) comes out.If it is just the bobbin, insert the bobbin in the case and pull on the thread. The bobbin should turn COUNTERCLOCKWISE. If it turns the other way, turn it upside down and try it again.
If it is the bobbincase,then Remove the needle plate and take the bobbin case completely out. On this machine there is a small lever which holds the bobbin case in position. Looking down on the bobbin case the lever is located at about 11 o'clock and has a small slot in it. It is also probably spring loaded which means it is not easy to turn without a small screwdriver. Insert the screwdriver in the slot and turn it to the left. Lift out the bobbin case and Carefully examine it for any nicks, scratches or rough spots. If you find any, they will need to be removed with an emery stick and or a sharpening stone. Buff with a very fine steel wool for total smoothness.
To replace the bobbin case use the screwdriver to open and hold the lever open while you insert the case back in. The straight part of the case will be on the right and you need to place the case so that the circular part rides on the slight grove in the hook.(The metal thing it sits on). Once you have it in place you can release the lever you've been holding open . It should fit over the edge of the bobbin case and not allow it to come out. Rethread the machine and turn it by hand a few times to see that it is working properly. Good luck!!!

SOURCE: bobbin case case keeps jamming

I am having somewhat the same problem with the exception that my needle did not break. I've cleaned and oil, but the bobbin case and projection positioned spring is not communicating to allow sewing to continue. The thread keeps jamming and the bobbin raises up the plate. So, what else am I to do?

Why doesn't the machine pick up the bobbin?


You may have fuzz in your bobbin case or under the plate. If you have canned air, spray it out. Are you using a pre-wound bobbin or one you wound yourself. I've found pre-wounds to be the best. Make sure your thread is pulled thru the bobbin case correctly and your needle up top is threaded correctly too. It's real easy to miss either one. Also, be sure to use a good backing when using fuzzy fabric. What size needle are you using. Too small of a needle may cause this also. For standard embroidery or sewing usually use an 11. Hope maybe this will help. Kindest regards,
Jody

Needle hits the wheel under bobbin


Sounds like the toothed-belt (if there is one) jumped off timing. You can try realigning until the needle goes into the hole as the bobbin holder rotates in place. You can do this by manually slowly operating machine -- do not do with electric pedal.

The needle is stuck in the Shark 612C model sewing machine, any solutions?


Try http://www.fixsewingmachine. com I also suggest that you clean bobbin case. Now, when needle is "stuck", this requires patience and care in "jiggling" the hand wheel to and fro until needle point begins to clear the jammed area. Carefully snip one thread that moves up under needle and jiggle hand wheel by carefully turning hand wheel toward you to see if you can move the take-up lever all the way up to the UP position. Look at bobbin case area and remove bobbin. Cut bobbin thread and remove bobbin case. Sweep gently with brush underneath case and carefully, gently sweep over the feed dogs, poking very ends of brush bristles into "teeth" area to remove lint, fuzz ball/s, and any loose thread/s. Raise presser foot, remove (possibly bent) needle. Insert new needle of appropriate size for fabric weight. Make sure needle pushed all the way up into needle bar groove, at side to back. Keep presser foot RAISED while rethreading. This allows thread to locate tension discs, and HOLD THREAD TAUT. Replace bobbin, making sure thread is EVENLY distributed on it. Imablanced bobbins cause jams, and bobbins with burrs and scratches can real havoc as well as the hook part of the shuttle where the bobbin fits. Smooth such areas with emery cloth carefully, ever so gently. Hope my suggestions are a solution for you. Jimmy

New Problem...I have a Singer CG-550. When I try and sew anything, the needle hits something inside where the bobbin is. The little black casing holing the bobbin keeps moving all over the place, I slip...


On the right of the black bobbin case there are two screws, you can slacken those screws off and move the bobbin case nearer to the guard leaving enough room for the thread to pass through, if the needle is hitting the bottom you may need to retime the machine.

the bobbin case may be in wrong, take out the bobbin and turn the hand wheel by hand, watch the bobbin case, it should rotate with out the needle hitting it, if it does it is not in right, adjust the case, the case should not move but the inner part should

My needle keeps hitting the bobbin casing...have switched needles incase bent....have tried moving needle position..still hitting casing


Your timing is off. There should be a ruber belt behind your hand wheel, if you take off the case around it; you should be able to adjust your timing of the bobbin casing.

I have the same problem and found that the bobbin case is scratched. These are quite expensive so I hope yours is something more simple. Keeping the bobbin area clean is also a necessity.
