SOURCE: Singer 3321 Talent Sewing Machine jammed after one turn forwards or backwards, even when thread and needle removed it won't work

This sounds more like the motor is bound up. The other solutions are, check for thread wrapped around moving parts, any belts that may have become displaced.

Testimonial: "Thank you I took the casing off and although I could not see any obvious threads I cleared out and blew into machine and put it back together and hey presto I am happy it worked.. So I reckon you are right with something bunging up the motor. Whatever it was I loosened it. Thanks"

Confidence Quilter 7469Q how do I load the bobbin?

Are you trying to wind the bobbin or just dropping it into the bobbin case and bring up the thread?

To wind the bobbin, place the spool on the pin and secure it with the spool pin cap. Pull the thread and pull it through the thread guides. The first guide is accessed by going around it and then pulling the thread under it. Go under the adjacent guide and then wrap the thread counter-clockwise (when facing the front of the machine) under the next guide to bring the thread back to the bobbin winder. Hold the bobbin with the hole up and pull the thread through that hole. Push the bobbin winder shaft to the far left and place the bobbin on the winder pin. Push the bobbin and winder shaft to the right until it clicks. Hold the thread and start the sewing machine. It will automatically stop when the bobbin is full. Move the bobbin winder shaft and bobbin to the left and take the bobbin off. Then cut the thread to separate the bobbin from the spool thread.

To put the bobbin into the bobbin case and bring up the thread:
Make sure that the needle is in the highest position (use the handwheel). Then open the bobbin cover by pressing the release lever to the right and then lifting up the cover. Hold the bobbin with the hole up so that the bobbin turns counter-clockwise when you pull the thread. Drop the bobbin into the bobbin case. Pull the thread into the slot just to the left of the bottom center (6 o'clock on a 12-hour analog clock), of the bobbin case. Place a finger on top of the bobbin and pull the thread to the left until it stops at the slot between the 7-8 o'clock position. Now pull the thread along the groove in the needle plate to the thread cutter. Replace the clear bobbin cover. The thread should be pulled up by the needle thread without any additional effort. (If it isn't, there may be a problem with the bobbin case or race.)

Singer has the manual for the 7469Q on their site: . The direct link to the manual is . Winding the bobbin is on page 16; threading the bobbin at the bobbin case is on page 18. These pages have good pictures to go with the descriptions.

I hope this helps.

Pressed foot is not moving to sew

this bobbin spindle alternate postion is for loading the bobbin from a spool of thread. on older machines with a wheel the inner part of the wheel was turned to dis engage to foot end to do the same task.

Can not lower the needle to pick up bobbin thread on my Singer Stylist 7358 machine

Where the bobin is at re check the exterior of the part that spins you may have a thread stuck and keeping it in place use a flash light then replace bobbin as you depress the power controller asist the wheel this should free up the bobbin area and should run

I tried to bring the inferior thread up after put in the bobbin but the needle do not pick up and stopping me for sewing

Is the bobbin put in right? Make sure the thread is coming off the bobbin in a counter-clockwise direction. Also make sure you're leaving enough thread coming off the bobbin for the top thread to grab hold of to pull up.

II replaced and now handwheel difficult to to turn and cannot catch bobbin.

did you get the machine from a dealor or individual? not all machines put their needles in the same way. do you have a manual? it sounds like the machine needs to be cleaned (serviced). the oil is probably thickened, and will freeze the machine up. make sure the needle is in correctly, and threaded correctly. bobbin too.

Sewing machine keeps skipping stitches

Generally, it means that the bobbin is too tight in the cavity.

1. Remove the bobbin
2. Try a drop of oil in the bobbin cavity in the machine, using a Q-TIP
3. After applying the oil, use a clean Q-TIP to remove excess oil in the cavity (may need more than one clean Q-TIP).
4. Replace bobbin.

(I'm sure you already tried differenty thread)

Hope this helps!
