SOURCE: Bobbit thread on my Singer Stylist 457 will not catch

Pull the slide plate open and watch the hook (the rotating part under the bobbin case). It should move around with no hitch.

If it does not turn, it has a broken gear. The model 457 has a vertical shaft gear that breaks and it's easy to replace.

SOURCE: Threading bobbin on singer stylist 522

To wind a bobbin put the cotton reel on the top pin, take the thread to the left and round the little wheel and back to the bobbin that should be on the winder, wind the thread round a few times to take a grip, release the stop motion in the balance wheel, turn the winder button so the winder moves to the balance wheel and press on the foot control slowly.
When you put the bobbin in the bobbin case make sure it turns anti clockwise.

SOURCE: Singer Sewing Machine model 9224. Bobbin thread

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.

Let me know.

E7 sounds like an error code. First step is to look it up in your owner's manual.

Singer stylist E2 error code bobbin winding


I have just repaired a 7258 with a frozen bearing unrelated to the E2 code except that I thought I would lube the entire machine while it was apart, and through my ignorance, I greased the clutch that releases the mainshaft when winding the bobbin, and then when the clutch wasn't working correctly, caused the E2 error. I can say the E2 error is not caused by a plug not seated correctly, too much tension in the bobbin thread, or God having a bad day. The E2 error code is thrown when the bobbin holder is in the wind position, and the mainshaft rotates. There is a clutch just behind the hand knob on the right side of the machine, and if it has too much lubrication with a stiff grease, or on an older machine, if the lube has dried out, the clutch will not release properly. I took the clutch apart, cleaned the grease I put in it, and then lubed it with bicycle silicone oil. It now works as designed. The hardest part of the repair was figuring out how the plastic cases split apart! If anyone in the SF Bay Area has a 7256, or 7258 that gives the E2 code, I can fix it - it's actually kind 'a fun...

Singer stylist 7258, will only pick up bobbin on one side when doing zigzag stitch


try using a washable stablizer or interfacing.
if that doesn't help then it's possible that a gear or cam may be worn enough to cause the machine zig zag not to work properly
