The bobbin has nothing to do with the feed teeth
however it is possible that at some point you moved the forward /reverse knob lever to middle where the teeth will not move

Singer - 241-12, bobbin thread not stitching


I have a 241-12 Singer. New to me. It was running great. Then the bobbin thread ran out. Put in one prewound bobbin that came with it, even though the bobbin appeared different. The bobbin thread didn't feed and the machine jammed up. I finally wound the old bobbin and put it in. It will only feed about 6" of thread before the bobbin thread breaks. It becomes so tight I can't get it to feed. Both bobbins will not feed. However I don't believe it's the bobbin tension because thread will pull through fine when pulled manually (if it hasn't been in the machine yet). What am I doing wrong?

What's your problem?singer simple feeder teeth


While attempting to engage the feed dogs with the switch, wiggle the hand while a little back and forth. Sometimes that motion will help it slide back into sewing mode.

Singer Electronic Control Sewing Machine 3343C--- The tread on the bottom of the fabric bunches up when sewing . The top thread OK What is my proble?


Hi Cat,
This seems to be a common problem, but easy to fix. Check the bobbin, and see if the thread feeds out quickly when holding the thread and letting the bobbin case drop. You should see a small screw on the front of the bobbin case for adjustment. Screw that until the drop rate is slight. You may need to adjust a few times to get just the right rate of feed.
Hope this helps, Please rate and comment, Thank You

Singer 507 sewing machine is not sewing correctly on top of fabric, fine underneath, any ideas


Check your bobbin threading, it is usually the opposite of what you think.

Sewing machine won't raise the bobbin thread


Hi. The two main reasons why the top thread doesn't pick up the bobbin thread is either the needle is inserted wrong or the needle is bent. Since your machine was sewing properly until the thread broke, I'd be inclined to think the needle may have gotten bent. Sometimes this can happen if you sew over a pin.

Change the needle (making sure the flat side of the needle shank is inserted properly for your machine) and see if that solves the problem. Let me know if it helps, ok?

My Singer 507 sewing machine keeps on jamming up, the thread gets wound around the bobin and jams. I have thread the machine as in the manual. PLEASE, PLEASE could you help.


If you have the 507 with the grey or black plastic bobbin case you may need to undo the two screws on the right hand side on the silver bit and push it over to the bobbin case so it is tight or enough gap between the bobbin case and the silver bit about a thread width.
