Indicates that the top tension is not tight enough
you can check the needle to hook timing yourself
by hand turn the machine over until the needle is in the fully down position
just as the needle starts to rise the hook should be at or just next the eye of the needle so that a fraction more turning places the hook over the eye of the needle
it that is not the relationship of the needle and hook adjust the needle cam on the shaft at the end of the machine or take it to a sewing machine repair shop to have it adjusted

How to remove broken horizontal spool pin of Singer Sewing machine model 6550 and replace with new spool pin?


It appears to be just "hooked" on according to the photo, and you can get the replacement part for $4.00 using this link: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/spool-pin-singer-3709-sewing-machine.aspx.

However, before you go to all that trouble, you can also just use the auxiliary spool pin used for twin needle sewing which came with your machine but can be purchased from the same site for about the same price.

I don't use either -- I just put the spool in a cup behind the machine and thread from there. See? One way or another, you're back in business!

Code 88 starts flashing as well as all the stitching lights on the panel when I try to thread the bobbin. I can sew, that is NOT the problem, threading the bobbin is. What is Code 88? I am not interested...


Turn your machine off and leave it off. Remove all bobbins - in the machine & from the pin. Remove all thread - from threaded machine and bobbin thread path. Clip the machine thread at the spool and pull the needle thread towards yourself. Clip bobbin thread at spool and close to bobbin, then pull towards you through thread guides. This keeps the tension where it belongs. Move the bobbin winding shaft from normal sewing back to winding bobbin a couple times. It should click in place when moved to the winding position. Check to see if there is any thread that has slipped under the bottom of the bobbin and wound itself around & under the bottom of the shaft. Carefully unwind to clear. If the shaft does not easily move back to the sewing position it is probably stuck in the winding position. Don't force it, but try to get it out of the winding position. Leave it to the left in the normal sewing position (unclicked). Check to see if there is any thread caught anywhere along the path from spool to the winding pin. Pay close attention to the first thread guide and the two discs the thread slips between that control tension. Hand wind the wheel on the right towards you to raise and lower the needle a couple of times. Stop with needle in highest position. Do NOT wind hand wheel backwards (away from you). Make sure the bobbin pin is not in the winding position. Now turn on your machine. Needle should jump to default position. Move the stitch length and stitch width guides to the far right, then far left, to attain the green lights. Press the reverse stitch button to raise lower and raise the needle. It will stop in the highest position. If you still have the error code - make sure the bobbin winding pin is NOT in the winding position. Remove the needle. Lower the presser foot and run the machine without any thread a bit. If the needle bar does not go up and down most likely the bobbin pin is stuck in the winding position. If the code has cleared use your manual to carefully wind a new bobbin. Make sure you are using a 15J bobbin which this machine requires. It will not work with just any bobbin. Next, raise the presser foot then carefully thread the machine. If you don't have a manual you can download one from the Singer website. You might consider cleaning the entire machine paying special attention to the hook area and feed dogs while the power is off. If you find a lot of lint do this more frequently to prevent buildup. Take special care when replacing the bobbin care. Hope this helps. If not call Singer. It may take some time but you should be able to reach someone to help you troubleshoot. If this is an older machine I recommend taking it for repair yourself instead of sending to Singer

How do I replace the spool pin on a singer model number 3820


I just looked, and Sewing Parts Online has it for your model (you can also look under 3810) for $3.99. Looks like it's just removing one screw, removing and replacing it, then reinserting the screw. Here's the link to your part, which is #E1A1663210, by the way.

Singer Touch and Sew Model 648 will not zigzag


There is an arm in the head that does the zig zag movement and attaches to the needle bar with a pin. If that isn't connected zig zag won't work at all.

I have a singer machine. Have not used it yet. Got it out of the box by the handle and it looks like the horizonal spool pin broke off. Is this replaceable? Or is this spool pin removable If so how do...


Do you have the manual with it, refer to this to find out if the spool is removable.

if you don't have one, then go to http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html, type in your model number and click "search" to find it.

Some machines will have two spool holders so you can twin sew but as long as you have one left the machine is useable.

How do i replace the spool pin on my singer sewing machine model # 3314?


Two ways.. either put the new spool pin in the other extra hole to the left of the trap door on top OR take out the two bigger screws on the top cover that hold it in, also take off the knobs on the front sliders (patters selection) and remove the top over. Push the old pin out from the inside with nail or something simila and replace.. simple. Do you have an extra spool pin you can share?
