Remove the needle , tighten the needle set screw so the clamp doesn't rattle and run the machine.This will give you a better idea of where the noise originates.
Remove the top cover and put a drop of sewing machine oil(not 3 in 1 oil) on anyplace that moves and rubs. Run the machine again and see if you still have the noise. Replace the top cover.
Open the side cover(left side) put a drop of oil on any thing that moves or rubs(Shafts or joints). Run the machine again.
Remove the bottom cover and repeat the above processes.
If you still have the problem and it is bothering either you or the machine then it needs to be seen by a technician.

Firstly make sure when you thread the machine you have the sewing foot in the up position or the thread will not sit in the tension and cause this problem. Also as it is a new machine it may have a small amount of oil from transport stopping the tension discs from separating. Try sliding the folded edge of a piece of fabric with the foot up through the tension unit it may clear the oil away.

Check your bobbin...make sure the handle is pointing upward.

You have a model 221 which was made on May 24, 1938 at the Elizabethport factory in Elizabethport, New Jersey. There were 20,000 of those made during that particular run which may have been over a few days.

Its value depends on its overall condition and what someone is willing to pay for it. Sight unseen, I would estimate market value for that machine in good running order at between $250 and $400.

How do I stop my singer prelude sewing machine from making so much noise?


Reset all dials. Straight stitch, 1 or 2 in length, ease the thread tension and see if it helps. The only area that makes noise is around the bobbin/needle part of sewing machines.

My PixiePlus Singer is making a weird noise and doesn't sew!


try changing the needle
rethread the machine top & bobbin
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or loose
threads
if these suggestions don't help, then it would be a good idea
to take the machine to a sewing machine shop to be serviced

I've lost my regular foot for my Singer prelude 8280. I'm looking for a reasonable one online. Can anyone help? Thanks.


Any snap on foot will fit, at least that is what it looks like in your manual. (I looked it up for free at www.singerco.com, under customer support, instruction manuals to download.) You can order from Singer direct or go to www.sewingpartsonline.com search under presser feet and order any one you want under snap on presser feet. They run approx. $14.95 each

Call Singer if this persists, without hearing the sound I would only be guessing what the problem is. The phone number is 1-800-4singer for customer service.

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!!
