Your timing is off. There should be a ruber belt behind your hand wheel, if you take off the case around it; you should be able to adjust your timing of the bobbin casing.

remove the cover over the bobbin section so that you can see the needle bobbin carrier interaction
now turn the machine over by hand and watch the needle go down and start to come up
at this point the hook of the bobbin carrier should be very close to the needle just above the eye of the needle
It is at this point the the needle thread is picked up and run around the bobbin carrier to link up with the bobbin thread
if it is not there then take it in for an adjustment as the adjustment is done by loosening off the clamp on the vertical bar at the end of the machine that moves the needle up and down and positioning the needle in the position described
if the needle is hitting the bobbin and the timing is correct , replace the needle as it may be bent or not in properly

Side wheel will not turn all the way


it's possible that the machine has a timing problem and would be a good idea to have it checked

I 've been using this 2639 Singer since 2006. It was working perfect until one day the bobbin case popped up away from the shuttle causing the needle to be blocked from moving. So, I removed the p


First change that needle. It's likely bent. A bent needle won't create a stitch.

Then double check your timing. It sounds like you have it ******** a bit... But that's hard to determine from a description. Before you start the timing process, make sure that your needle bar is in the correct position. (typically the upper timing mark on the needle bar is just below the lower needle bar guide when the needle is at its very lowest point) If necessary loosen the needle bar holder and make a correction. Once the needle bar is positioned correctly... then move on to the shuttle/needle timing.

Good luck!

The needle is stuck in the Shark 612C model sewing machine, any solutions?


Try http://www.fixsewingmachine. com I also suggest that you clean bobbin case. Now, when needle is "stuck", this requires patience and care in "jiggling" the hand wheel to and fro until needle point begins to clear the jammed area. Carefully snip one thread that moves up under needle and jiggle hand wheel by carefully turning hand wheel toward you to see if you can move the take-up lever all the way up to the UP position. Look at bobbin case area and remove bobbin. Cut bobbin thread and remove bobbin case. Sweep gently with brush underneath case and carefully, gently sweep over the feed dogs, poking very ends of brush bristles into "teeth" area to remove lint, fuzz ball/s, and any loose thread/s. Raise presser foot, remove (possibly bent) needle. Insert new needle of appropriate size for fabric weight. Make sure needle pushed all the way up into needle bar groove, at side to back. Keep presser foot RAISED while rethreading. This allows thread to locate tension discs, and HOLD THREAD TAUT. Replace bobbin, making sure thread is EVENLY distributed on it. Imablanced bobbins cause jams, and bobbins with burrs and scratches can real havoc as well as the hook part of the shuttle where the bobbin fits. Smooth such areas with emery cloth carefully, ever so gently. Hope my suggestions are a solution for you. Jimmy

Needle keeps hitting bobbin case when trying to pull it up to top


If the needle is hitting at the low spot when its lowered, the needle is bent or not fully pushed up into the needle bar, could be timing of the needle bar as well.

My needle jams when it hits the tray the bobbin case is in. It looks as if the timings off because just to the right of where my needle hits is a dip in the tray. Almost as if the needle's too long. I've...


If this is a drop-in/horizontal bobbin, raise the needle to it's highest position. Remove the bobbin case then replace it so it fits snugly into the shuttle. Hand walk to see if the case moves freely in a circle. If it stops, it is not positioned correctly. You do not have to have a needle in to test this.

Once you are sure the bobbin case is correctly in place, re-install the needle. Hand Walk to make sure the case turns without any interference.

If the needle continues to hit, then the machine needs to go into the shop for service.

There is a DIY for adjusting the timing of the hook sewusa.com if you wish to try the adjustment on your own.

My needle keeps hitting the plastic bobbin holder - how can I fix this? Is the bobbin holder inserted wrong?


change the needle and see if it is still hitting because once they hit the case or the feed dog they very often get bent always change needles with different fabrics and types of thread

Bobbin holder seems to be broke and needle breaks


Hello,
Here are several things to try.

* When you insert your new needle, make sure it’s positioned correctly (usually with the flat side away from the bobbin, but consult your manual), that it goes all the way into the holder, and that the screw is securely tightened.


If there doesn’t seem to be a problem with your needle, try the following:

* Check your pressure foot and make sure it’s attached securely.


* Change your pressure foot Your pressure foot may be bent, causing your needle to hit it.


* Don’t sew over pins a needle that hits a pin can break. Always remove the pins from your fabric before they reach your needle.


* Don’t pull your fabric as you sew. You could be bending your needle back, causing it to hit your needle plate instead of going into the hole. Just guide your fabric, letting it feed on its own.


* Check your needle plate and make sure it's securely in position.


* Change your needle plate. If you’ve been using a straight stitch needle plate (a plate with a small hole, often used for sewing fine, delicate fabrics), switch to a needle plate with a wider hole.


* Check the position of your needle. Sewing machines with zigzag capability allow you to adjust the position of your needle – right, left, or center. If your needle is not positioned correctly, it may be hitting your needle plate or pressure foot.


* Un-thread your machine and remove your bobbin. Clean any loose thread or lint out of your
bobbin case. Re-thread your machine, reinsert and re-thread your bobbin.

* Change your bobbin. There could be a nick along the edge of your bobbin spool that’s catching your thread as you sew.

Also, before you start to sew a seam, hold the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back
and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting
caught in your machine.

I hope these solutions help you.
