Mu Singer Futura II model 920 hand wheel seized up-it will not turn. any ideas?


Turning towards you? that is correct. It could be something else that is wrong, like needle hitting the plate, thread jammed etc...and you think it is the handwheel when the handwheel is just not turning reflecting something else. What I always do is take everything out and off...bobbin, bobbin case, feed dog plate, etc...and even remove the needle. Take your brush and get every last bit of lint out of the areas it might be. Something is hung up. When you put your needle back in, make sure it is up all the way, and use a new one. Maybe this will help, but if not, call Singer or take it somewhere as it might be a simple fix.

My Futura 900 machine is locked up tighter than a drum. How can I fix it?


this should be in sewing not vacuums. Did you find the bit of needle that broke off? It might still be in causing problems. turn machine upside down to free any bits that might be hanging about.

I bought a singer lockstitch 2000 at a yard sale. it came without an instruction manual and i cannot figure out how to load the bobbin correctly


Hi. I'm not familiar with your model, but in most cases, one would set the bobbin into the bobbin case, pulling the tail through the tension and letting a couple of inches of thread hang out. Insert bobbin case and bobbin together as one unit, with the bobbin on the inner side towards the hook. It should snap into place only one way and should require very little effort.

My Singer portable (#6202/62120) keeps stitching nicely on top, but the bottom stitching is all knotted up! It's driving me crazy! I have tried everything. Any help would be greatly appreciated....


The bottom side is effected by the TOP tension. First make sure the top is threaded correctly. Best thing to do is completely unthread it and then thread it again. Then check the tension and make sure it is not too loose. Check the needle to make sure it is inserted correctly and not bent.

Once you've done that then you can take a look at the bobbin tension and make sure it isn't too loose too. Make sure the bobbin is in the case correctly, wound correctly and that the bobbin case is completely inserted right. You will hear and or feel a slight "click" when it goes in correctly,

I amhaving trouble with the thread brahing and I don;t know if it is the tension. Which way should the pobbing turn right or left and how do you set the tension For my Singer sewing machine


Check the upper threading and make sure it is threaded correctly. When you pull on the thread before it goes through the needle does it give a bit or does it break? If it is breaking when you pull then the tension is way too tight or it is threaded incorrectly. Make sure it isn't looped around some guide along the line too.

For the bobbin thread... when it is in the bobbin case outside of the machine dangle it by the thread. It should hang there until you flick your wrist a bit, which should cause some thread to release and drop the bobbin down towards the floor a bit. (If it just pulls out right to the floor it is too loose). Most bobbin tension is tightened by a small screw on the bobbin case near where the thread comes though. Breaking thread would not be from the bobbin thread being too loose. Too loose would cause looping on top side of the stitch not breakage.

Make sure the bobbin is in correctly. You should feel and hear a slight "click" when the bobbin goes in correctly.

The bobbin case broke and now i cant sew


You will need to replace the broken bobbin case. You can contact the manufacturer, giving them the model number and they can give you a price. Or if you have a store in town that carries your model, they can order one for you.
I hope you get it replaced so you can be sewing again soon!
