try adjusting the top thread tension-one number or letter less, then sew on a piece of the scrap fabric if you have any. to see if that helps try changing the needle make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case, I know this may sound crazy but it can hinder the sewing, I was sewing a skirt the other night & I turned the bobbin the wrong way & inserted the bobbin into the bobbin case & it didn't work good,, I took the bobbin out of the bobbin case & had multiple threads. so I had to clean the mess up & turn the bobbin the opposite way & the machine worked just fine
I agree with sylviaivie about find another repairman, they are suppose to guarantee the work they do. when the upper shaft is replaced & then the machine is retimed the machine should work just fine. but just don't take it back to that man to be repaired here is a tip if it happens again,, always try to cut the top thread first, & turn the machine up on it's back to access the bottom cover take the cover off the bottom to get access to the bobbin thread where you can cut the bobbin thread then you should be able to get the needle out without breaking it & damaging the upper shaft, replace the needle & make sure that the thread is good quality & not knotty, clean out the bobbin area of lint or thread always change the needle on the embroidery machine every project make sure the bobbin area is kept clean of lint or thread clean under the needle plate at least once a week for lint if you embroidery everyday or just often
when you sew keep a eye on the thread take up lever & see if the thread comes off while your sewing, I've had this happen to me & I've been sewing for over 30 years. if this does happen, take a pair of pliers & very gently close the take up lever just alittle but not enough to damage it. also check the needle to see if it's damaged--if your not sure change the needle--flat side goes to the back of the machine always make sure the fabric & needle & thread are compatable--the thread must be able to pull thru the needle with out any problem also check to make sure there are not any burrs on the needle plate or bobbin or bobbin case
here's something to check is the needle inserted all the way in to the needle holder? needle--flat side goes to the back of the machine is the needle clamp screw tight or loose? if the needle is correctly in the needle holder & the needle clamp screw is tight --then the needle bar is out of time & need to be serviced IF YOU DO HAVE TO TAKE IT TO BE SERVICED AFTER YOU GET IT HOME STOP RIGHT THEN & SEW ON THE MACHINE TO MAKE SURE THEY FIXED THE MACHINE & IT SEWS LIKE IT SUPPOSE TO, I HAD ONE CUSTOMER THAT TOOK THEIR MACHINE TO A SHOP & THEY CLEANED IT AGAIN & DIDN'T FIX IT BUT CHARGED THEM FOR IT & THEY BROUGHT IT TO ME TO FIX & IT HAD TO BE RETIME did you get a instruction manual for the machine if not check at singer Go to the singer website

Ok, hang on! This can get tricky! Remove the bobbin. Remove the presser foot and the needle. Remove the throat plate. This gives you plenty of room to monkey with your bobbin case. NOW, lay the bobbin case in its correct area and gently rotate it until it falls into place. It may take several tries. Once you're satisfied that it's secure, snap the holding clips into place and it should all fit nicely. THEN place your bobbin in the case correctly...check the diagram in the manual. Depending on the machine, some bobbins have the threads coming off counterclockwise and others have them coming off clockwise, but your manual should show. Sometimes, there's even a diagram on the throat plate or the bobbin case as well. Good luck. Hope this works. If this solves your problem, please come back and rate my answer!

MAKE SURE you are using the correct SIZE bobbin. Some of the older plastic bobbins don't swap around in the newer machines & just because they LOOK the same doesn't mean they are. If you are absolutely POSITIVE you are using the right size bobbin (mark it w/ a permanent marker if you have to, to keep track of it), check & double check you are putting the bobbin in the case in the right direction & make sure there aren't any loose threads anywhere in the area where the bobbin sits... be sure all little dust bunnies are removed. I know it sounds redundant but get your book out & be POSITIVE you are threading thru all the thread paths in the right direction. My Babylock is supremely **** when it comes to putting the shuttle back in after I've cleaned the bobbin area & if I don't get it back exactly where it supposed to go, it won't sew right. I always have to get my book back & check it out again step by step. I have it do crazy stuff just because there was a little tail hanging out where the bobbin started to wind that I didn't cut off close enough.
I had the same problem and had recently posted my own message, with no replies. Took it to a repair person and he fixed it at no cost - it was stuck in reverse because the mechanism(s) were all gunked up. Take off the accessory box on the machine and the bottom plate. move the mechanism so they move freely and take out any gunk you see. The feeder dogs should now move back & forth in addition to up & down, feeding the material properly
