After replacing the needle in my singer 8280, the needle clamp is not holding the needle tight, the needle falls down even after tighening do i make the needle get fixed?

It sounds like you have lost the tread guide. When you press the clamp as far up as it will go, there should be a slot in the post underneath the clamp visible. You may need to use a mirror to see it. The thread guide snaps into that slot and keeps the clamp from falling down. Take it to any repair shop. It will not be expensive to repair.

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.

When i fill the thread in a bobbin on top then the footer also moves up n down for singer model 8280

If you have released the stop motion and the needle still goes up and down it usually means you have a dry topshaft where the balance wheel is, you need to take it in for a service

My bobbin thread will not attach to top thread so the needle thread sews but nothing will come up from the bottom. WHy

sounds as if your bobbin is in wrong . I believe all bobbins are to be inserted so that it goes counter clock wise. When you place the bobbin in the bobbin casing make sure you check and see if it goes in the opposite direction of the clock. also check your needle it may be in backwards too

My face plate will go backwards and put the needle all the way down but when I turn it away from me it is like something is stuck. The needle will not go down.

DO NOT TURN AWAY from you. You will mess up the timing and then you will need professional service. Why are you trying to go backwards? To reverse sew, you have a lever

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!!
