I have a singer serger 14SH654, I have threaded it ok, (checked and double checked), and it's sewing ok, but whenever I go to remove the item I'm sewing the "yellow" looper always thread always breaks,...


I try not to pull the threads when removing my fabric from the serger. Instead when the fabric has cleared the needles, continue to sew a chain of about 5-6 inches, then simply cut it with scissors leaving part of the chain attached to the fabric and the rest of the chain attached to the machine.

Why would my Singer ProFinish not chain and the needles will not stay threaded?


Try rethreading it. Make sure you are getting the bottom thread right or your tension will not lock the threads thus no chain.

Skipping Stitches My Singer Confidence machine is skipping stitches. I've cleaned the feed dogs and the stitch hook, changed needles three times, changed thread, adjusted the tension, etc.


Skipped stitches

1. The needle is not inserted correctly

Remove needle & reinsert needle( flat side towards the back of machine)

2. The needle is damaged

replace with new needle

3. The wrong size needle is being used

Choose a needle to suit the thread & fabric

4. The foot not attached correctly

Check & attach correctly

5. If the above suggestions don't help then the machine needs to be checked

For a timing problem.

Singer sewing machine pulls fabric and snarls


try changing the needle--make sure the needle is the right one for the
fabric being sewed.
rethread the machine using every thread guide
try turning the bobbin the opposite direction
clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for lint
you may also have to use a washable stabilizer with the fabric

Singer ingenuity locked up needle won't go up


Ok. Take a deep breath, count to 10... and exhale.

First let's release the thread. cut it just past the spool. See if it will allow you to move the needle now. If not, lift the presser foot and push the fabric up the needle and see of you can clip any threads between the fabric and the needle plate. Test to see of you can get the needle to move....

If not... pull the bobbin cover plate open, snip any thread you can see... test the needle again. Keep proceeding this way until you can free the needle and the fabric.

Once the fabric is free. Take that needle out and replace... it's probably damaged now even if it looks straight and ok.
Take your time and really clean under the bobbin plate... make sure there are NO bits of needle, thread, fuzz, etc. Use a magnifying glass and make sure there are no threads wrapped around working parts.

Take out and examine the bobbin carrier. Use your fingernail to see if you can feel any burrs. If you find some use fine grit sand paper to carefully smooth them out.

Get a scrap of the same fabric and do a test stitch.

Good luck.

I have recently bought Singer Quantum 9940 and I am not happy with the stitch. For zigzag stitch, I can see too much of the upper thread on the bottom side. This happens unequally: more on the right hand...


1. Make sure your needle is correct for the fabric. Go buy some good needles in several sizes. You'll need a 90 for jeans, rounded points for fine fabrics... get a few sizes. Your manual should provided you with clues to the right needle for the fabrics. (BTW... there really is no such thing as a Universal Needle... toss it.)

2. Re-read your manual and carefully follow the instructions on threading the bobbin and the upper thread...

3. Check your tension on the upper thread... it is too loose for the application. The tension on the bottom thread is handled by a spring on your bobbin case or race. If you do not have that threaded properly you'll have problems. Same with the direction the bobbin turns... have in it backwards... problems.

Barring all these things... It might be time for a qualified Singer repair person to look at it. Sadly Singer has seriously lowered it's standards in the last 20 years.

Every few stitches thread gathers and jams on bobbin side of fabric. Why? [the machine is a Singer model 6180]


Change needle
Clean under needle plate where feed dogs are for lint
Clean bobbin area for lint or loose threads
Rethread machine top thread make sure to get every thread guide
& bobbin
Check tension 3 or 4 is usually good

How do i thread my needle with the singer handy stitch?


  1. Loosen needle screw & insert needle with shank's flat side facing front of machine. Push needle in all the way, then tighten screw to hold needle in place.
  2. Install a fully wound bobbin by loosening bobbin nut & placing bobbin on top. Re-attach bobbin nut & tighten. If standard thread spool will be used, then attach spool pin to bobbin shaft & place thread spool onto shaft. Attach white spool cap on end of thread spool, then tighten. Bobbin/spool should unwind facing forward toward needle.
  3. Bring end of thread through thread guides & over tension control. Pass end of thread through needle eye, from back to front, & pull it out about two inches.
  4. A spring pushes pressor foot onto fabric that is being sewn, so lift pressor foot & place fabric underneath.
  5. Turn large handwheel on side of machine (handwheel can be turned in either direction) to raise needle arm to its highest position.
  6. Holding the Handy Stitch in place with your right hand, press on power switch & begin sewing. Guide fabric (being sewn) with your left hand.
  7. To end this sewing session, turn off power. Turn handwheel to raise needle to its highest position. Carefully pull out about three inches of thread through needle & snip, then lift pressor foot to remove fabric. Turn fabric over & loop needle threader through last stitch. Place end of thread from underside through eye of needle threader, & pull to loop through. Pull to tighten and snip end of thread.
