Frequent thread breaking


Hai, Please check the thread tension and change the new thread and new needle. Otherwise put the some drops oil in the top and bobbin thread. Or go to mechanic shop.

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.

On my Singer 8280, the thread stitches are very loose. I've tried adjusting the tension of the upper and below thread. No change, still loose stitches. Any ideas? I wonder if I broke and...


The most common cause of this is improper threading.

1. Thread the upper thread properly with the presser foot in the UP position.

2. Make sure the bobbin is threading with the thread unspooling in the correct direction.

3. Make sure the needle and thread are suitable for the fabric in your project.

Singer5050 sews a little then jams top thread in pieces in bobbin area


Start from the begining.
Use your Instruction Book and make sure the machine is threaded correctly.
Put in a new needle.
Adjust the top tension to about halfway.
Fit a fresh wound bobbin that does not have all sorts of different threads still wound on it(a bad habit with a lot of people).
Make sure the bottom tension is correct.
Make sure the bobbin is fitted corectly.
Set the machine to do basic straight stitch(mid range stitch length).
Try sewing and see if the problem is solved.

I have had a singer prelude 8280 for a year now with no problems. now all the sudden the thread is catching in the bobbin casing. The thread on top looks normal, but when you turn over the fabric...


It is in your top threading, try this test, rethread, now with the presser foot up, pull the top thread, it should feed smoothly, now lower the presser foot, it should barely move. Sometimes this seats the thread in the tension discs. Also, make sure that your needle is fresh.

I have model 8280 and the bobbin thread keeps bunching up on the bottom. I have tried to rethread it but it keeps happening.


i think your putting in your bobin backwards,
to check put your bobin in and hold bobin , and bobin case by thread if it unrolls its backwards,
hope this helps!!
