CHANGE THE NEEDLE. TAKE OUT ALL OF THE BOBBIN CASING. CLEAN IT AND PUT ONE DROP OF OIL ON THE RACE (THE INDENT AREA THAT EVERYTHING RIDES ON AND CAN'T BE REMOVED). LOOK FOR A BROKEN NEEDLE PART AND THREAD AND ANYTHING THAT SHOULDN'T BE THERE. PUT EVERYTHING BACK. TURN THE HAND WHEEL TOWARDS YOU AND OBSERVE IF THERE IS ANYTHING TOUCHING THE NEEDLE. IF THERE IS THEN THAT WILL NEED TO BE FIXED.

SOURCE: I need to load the bobbin for my singer 247, I have no manual

I am a veteran seamstress and I may be able to help you. it sounds as though you just have the wrong needle in the machine or the needle is in backwards.. Machine needles are different lengths according to what machine it is. The needle could also be dull on the point. Try this and see if it helps. Also your local sew shop can help you no charge if you just go in and talk with them. The techs enjoy helping for the most part I have discovered.

SOURCE: I have an old singer sewing machine 401A. The top

You can download a manual for $10 at www.sewingmanuals.com and it should help you. A couple of suggestions though, is your needle inserted correctly? Flat side facing the rear of the machine, fresh needle? Threaded correctly on top and bobbin area? Is your thread good not too old and the same type in bobbin and top? Did you leave a long enough tail in the bobbin thread? 3-4 inches which you hold with your left hand. Is the thread in the bobbin unwinding the right way? Are you turning the handwheel towards you, not away from you at least two revolutions or until you see the thread loop? Try these suggestions, and I am sure one will work unless your timing is off and it needs professional service.

I have a singer 247 I broke the needle and have replaced it . Now the bobbin will not turn I have taken it apart and still doesn't work if you could help me fix it I would appreciate it


Most likely the needle was broken when a piece of cloth was under the machine right , this means that the needle was slightly bent while it went down to pick up the lower thread , in most of these cases it damaged something fornm the bottom spool.....better check carefullyfor marks and VERY genrly with a new needle in place utrn by hand and see feel where it gets stuck...then replace part or bring to shop to fix ...

Singer 7422 bobbin thread bunching up


I assume you checked to see there are no needle bits in the bobbin case holder.
Without looking at the machine it is difficult to diagnose the problem. It could be any one or a combination of problems, timing, needle bar height, damage to the hook and base etc.
I strongly suggest you have it looked at by a sewing machine tech.
