I would start by looking for a problem with the bobbin tension. Do you have the bobbin threaded through the case correctly? Is the the bobbin tension set to loose? Another thing that can cause it to spool up on the bottom is if it sews a bunch of stitches all in the same spot or real close, do you have the presser foot tension to loose?

SOURCE: How do I fix timimg on a singer 2263

There should be one or two set screws behind the bobbin shuttle, they could also be in the bobbin shuttle. You will loosen them st the timing and then retighten them. The Timing on a sewing machine is really straight forward, but that doesn't mean its not a pain in the but. When the needle is at the bottom of its travelthe hook on the shuttle should be coming around to meet the needle. As the needle starts back up it will create a loop in the thread for that hook to catch. Therefore the needle needs to start up before that hook is directlly in line with the needle. But the hook has to be above the eye of the neelde. So rotate it back and forth with no thread and watch to see when the hook passes the needle. It will probably take several attempts but you can do it. Do it in small movements. and only tighten the set screws enough to hold the shuttle in place to check it. Do not forget to retighten them.

You can download an instruction manual for Singer machines from here http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html, just type in the model number and click "search".

This sounds more like top thread is not in tension though so have you checked tension is working okay?

However, to adjust timing you will need a service manual or general instructions for a horizontal hook sewing machine. You may find a video that helps with this on You-tube, I just leave it to the experts.

First make sure that the needle is fully up. Then you need to open the hinged front cover and unscrew the needle plate screws. Remove the bobbin. Brush out any lint now. Remove the bobbin case. Then snap the hook retaining arms outwards. Remove the hook cover and hook. Put no more than 2 drops of sewing machine oil on the the case (center right hand side). Then turn the hand wheel until the hook race is in the left position. Replace the hook and then the hook cover. Snap the hook retaining arms back into position. Replace the bobbin case and bobbin. Then replace the stitch plate.

Test the machine on a piece of waste fabric. If the hook keeps jamming, take the machine in for maintenance. The parts that may need to be replaced are the race or the shuttle hook. However without seeing the unit I do not know if there is not another problem. Some parts for the 2263 are available here: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/singer-2263-sewing-machine-parts.aspx .

Singer has a second manual available with the oiling instructions for the 2263 here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1213_oiling-2263.pdf . See the diagrams on this page for where things line up. The rest of the instruction manual is also online here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1180_2263%28eng_spa_fre%29.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I need a repaire manual for a singer simple 2263 sewing machine


This site might have what you need. Repair manuals can be very hard to find. I don't know that all the links on this site are still good but it is one of the only places I've even seen repair manuals for Singer machines listed. Best of luck.
