Make sure that the thread is not getting caught on the handle. I was having the same problem and tried everything only to find that my thread was caught.

SOURCE: New singer 8280 needle hits overcasting foot and breaks

so, it sews for a while?  It sounds to me like the screw that holds the needle in place is loose.  As the needle moves up and down the screw loosens until that one fateful stitch, it comes out completely.  Try to tighten with a screw driver.
the other possibility is that it breaks if you are sewing over a bulky seam, like a flat fell.  as the presser foot "toes up" to go over the lump, the needle hits and there you are.
holler if that doesn't help.

After stitching few stitches my machine snger 8280 get jammed


Not being there, I have to guess, but my guess is, your bobbin case is not set in properly, or you have a badly wound bobbin that's causing the jamming.

Another possibility is you have threads wrapped around the tension unit on the inside.

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.

When i fill the thread in a bobbin on top then the footer also moves up n down for singer model 8280


If you have released the stop motion and the needle still goes up and down it usually means you have a dry topshaft where the balance wheel is, you need to take it in for a service

Singer 8280 will not zig zag


If your machine has been sitting and not being used, try oil and taking a hair dryer to your needle shaft. This may free it up so that you can adjust your width and length. Another thing could be that your needle shaft is bent. I hope that the hair dryer does the trick for you.

If you are not able to free this easily, you really should consider taking it to a service technician to look at it in case you do more damage to the needle bar and elsewhere trying to fix it yourself.
