Question about Singer HD-110 Mechanical Sewing Machine

Open Question

To bob or not to bob

I have the HD112 and bust my needle.Thinking it was fragmented in the machine, I partially took it apart. I am now having a hard time placing the bobbin holder where it should be. It says on the manual not to touch the piece I touched, oops! The piece is metalic and holds the bobbin holder down. One of the screws will now not go back in (it lost its thread) but the other 2 work. Could this be the cause why my needle is not picking up the bobbin thread? How are you meant to place the bobbin holder...I'm totally frustrated and have cross eyes from trying to look t relaly small parts HELP

SOURCE: can't get the bobbing holder back in place

lambchopp22 the bobbin case "the black thing" can be tricky to get back in but first you may need to get a new bobbin case because that is what can cause the whole bridnesting thing check to see if you have a nick or a hole in the bobbin case. then be sure you have the bobbin in correctly this also can cause the bridnesting thing to happien. after you make sure that the case is ok or get a new one turn the hand wheel toward you until the metal hook is at the one o'clock postion you might have to move the hand wheel back and forth to get it to slide in correctly. hope this helps you out

If the plate is moving up and down eithetr the teth are set far too high pushing the plate up or the teeth are set too far forward, I would go for the first, if the teeth are coming up well above the slot they are too high, they should be set so that when you look alongside the plate you can just see the top of the teeth, you can adjust the teeth by adjusting the screws underneath the machine where the teeth are.

How do i adjust the needle bar on a singer 4411

I have repaired a few of these machines, and if yours is not stitching the problem is usually that the timing is off. Adjusting the needle bar is one way to get the needle eye and the hook timed but in this case it is not the answer. There is a timing belt that runs from the top to the bottom of the machine.and it has a tendency to jump a tooth putting the timing out. It takes quite a bit of work to get the machine apart, and some patience to get the timing back,
Sorry to say it's no easy fix.

My needle is stuck in the bobbing case of my sewing machine, it will bend and break if i force it up.

From the pictures I've seen, it looks like you should be able to move the two black levers on either side of the bobbin case and remove the shuttle. With the shuttle out of the way, the bobbin case should be released from the needle. (I've had to do this with my own machines at times.)

If the needle is hanging up in the bobbin, it is likely that the machine is out of time (the needle is not penetrating the bobbin area at the correct time). (Verify that you are using the right needles for your machine--some needles are longer and could cause it to hang up in the machine. And then check to make sure you are installing the needle with the flat side facing the correct direction.) You could try to take it for service, however, the cost may not be justifiable vs purchasing a new machine. Perhaps talking to some sewing repair shops will give you an idea of the cost to repair.

The two needles on my serger are broken, how do I replace them?

You might want to check the owners manual to make sure this is right for your machine (or let us know which machine you have), but on my Singer, there is a small screw between the two needles that must be loosened - be sure to hold the needle fragments as you do this to prevent them falling. Notice the orientation of the needle fragments as you remove them, then orient two new needles the same way the fragments were, insert them all the way into the machine and tighten the screw while holding them in place.

Needle broke and i changed with the same number now it is not picking up the thread and does not stitch

you said the needle broke, did you check in the needle plate where the feed dogs are if there was any needle fragments
also check in the bobbin area for needle fragments, take the bobbin case & bobbin out & clean the area

Needle is hitting the bottom of the bobin hausing

It sounds for sure like the needle is not in all the way. Try inserting the needle again, it ,may have slipped when it jammed.
