SOURCE: bobbin case retainer popping out on Singer Touch & Sew 625

Take the bobbin case out. Then when you go to put it in, realize there are 2 ways to get it. You have found one way. The other way is first look in the the slot with a flashlight before you insert it. There is a flat piece of metal the bracket needs to be slid under as it is inserted. This acts like a spring making it tight

SOURCE: hand wheel is stuck

hi there,
well,stuck up hand wheel, is due to mechanical obstruction inside machine,bushing on shafting need to oil,and on handwheel bushing near clutch there is oil port there. since hand wheel are connected to cam shaft with set of gears and pulley is coupled to motor pulley,and other linkage under bobbins,shuttle race etc,broken gears are most common causes of stuck up handwheel,we can consider also the brush carbon,when worn out and damage the rotor commutator brush.if you can open the cover of motor below side of handwheel,you can see the pulley and motor assembly.also on top of machine there an opening to see the top gear assembly,this should be done by service technician.try to bring to nearest service center if still under warranty claim this for lesser maintenance cost.have a nice day,don't forget to rate me.thank's.

SOURCE: Singer 4562 t bobbin case won't fit properly, what am I doing wro

Make sure the bobbin case sets sort of on top and not under the ridge of the metal ring. There is a small latch on the upper left of the bobbin case. It is metal. rotate the latch to cover the bobbin case and this should stabilize the case without making it immobile

How to thread the bobbin of a singer 90s


First make sure that the needle is fully up (use the hand-wheel). Move the bobbin cover release button to the right and lift the bobbin cover out of the way. Remove the current bobbin, if needed. Hold the new, full bobbin so that the thread comes off the bobbin counter-clockwise when you pull the thread. Place the bobbin into the bobbin case. Pull the thread through the slot near the bottom of the case and to the left. Place a finger on top of the bobbin. Next bring the thread left further towards the back of the bobbin case until it stops in the second slot (near the 8 o'clock position if you compare the position to a 12-hour analog clock). Pull the thread back through the groove in the cover plate until it is cut by the thread cutter at the top left of the cover plate. (The thread will turn a "corner" to the cutter.) Replace the bobbin cover.

Singer has the manual for most of their sewing machines here: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual for the 90S is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/26e7243ab52aaed42904377fea7b090541eb0c9b.pdf . See pages 16-17 (page 18 in the PDF for the English description) and pictures that may be better than the verbal description.

I hope this helps.

How to deactivate the safety device on the Singer Futura SES 1000 embroidery machine? How can I get the hand wheel to turn again to get the machine to sew/embroider?


You can't--something is stopping the wheel from turning, and until you find out what is stopping it, your machine will be locked up. Take a look below the bobbin case, and you'll see a ***** holding a little door. It allows you to clean and see on the other side of the bobbin basket. Chances are, there's something like a broken off needle stopping the gear that turns the hook. It can also be caused by threads wrapped around the tension disks, or around the inside of the hand wheel itself. The hand wheel can be removed by removing the cap in the center--it is hiding a ***** that holds the wheel.

Singer 2263 needle hitting something in bobbin area (loud thunk) and needle moves


try taking the bobbin out and putting it back in the bobbin
case if it's a top loading bobbin
if it's a side or front loading bobbin make sure the bobbin case is
inserted correctly
if the bobbin and bobbin case are inserted correctly then
it sounds like the sewing machine could have a timing
problem and needs to be checked at a sewing machine shop

Hand wheel won't spin?


Something is binding up inside. Clean and check under the presser foot and bobbin area. Really examine under there... look for threads wrapped around and in between moving parts. Also check in the slot for the take up lever... sometimes threads get balled up inside there can cause problems.

could also be a bent upper arm inside the machine (lets hope not) Get professional help if cleaning doesn't free it up.

When I manually turn the wheel of my sewing machine,, it sounds like the needle is hitting something at the bottom.


Do two things- 1. Take out the needle, verify it is the right size for the machine. If it is, unscrew the needle tightenen screw ALL the way before re-inserting, making sure the needle goes as high as possible in the shank. 2. Check to make sure that the bobbin, bobbin casing, and hook (that thing that the bobbin case hooks into) are installed properly. It should be one of those two issues...

I have a singer cxl electronic sewing machine and i have a problem with the needle either not moving or stopping when stitching the larger motifs or the zigzag stitch, somtimes the needle jut moves too...


The needle either not moving or stopping is a sign that the machine is jamming. Here's the answer for the question "My machine is jammed" from the FAQs on Singer's web site at http://www.singerco.com/support/faqs.html

A jammed machine is caused by thread being caught in the hook. Remove the upper thread and the bobbin case, turn the hand wheel towards you (counterclockwise) by hand and remove any thread in the bobbin case area. *Always turn the hand wheel towards you. Turning the hand wheel away from you (clockwise) can cause the machines timing to become unaligned and jam your machine. Also, always make sure the presser foot is in the down position before you start sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will jam your machine in the bobbin case.

Your description of the needle hitting the plate or foot is an indication that the machine's timing has become unaligned which can be caused as indicated above by turning the hand wheel away from you - the correct way is to *Always turn the hand wheel towards you.

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.
