Here's how you set the timing od the Machine alright:
1. Take the side plate off, take the needle plate off.
2. Take the presser foot off, and put a new needle in the machine. 3. Make sure that the needle is in the lowest position and look at the needle bar for the two timing lines. Locate the top line.
4. Then, turn the handwheel toward you until the top line is where the bottom line was.
At this point, the tip of the hook should be directly in the scarf of the needle.
This should set the timing of the machine perfect....

My sewing machine thread is sticking around the drop feed control

There are several possibilities, but the most likely is you have a burr on the needle plate that is catching the thread. Run your finger over the plate, and if you feel a rough spot, use an Emory board to smooth it. You can also easily replace it. Sewing Parts online has a replacement plate for $12.99, by the way, and I'm going to provide the direct link below.

Another possibility is the bobbin is not correctly wound, the bobbin case is not correctly inserted, the surface of the bobbin case has a rough spot (solve an Emory board the same way), the needle is not all the way up in the clamp, you did not thread with the presser foot UP, or your bobbin is warped. To determine that, roll it down a flat surface. If it wobbles, it's warped. Needle Plate Singer 416472401

Needle breaking

Is the needle all the way up? Are you sure it's actually hitting the bobbin? It MAY--and quite possibly IS--inserted too low in the needle clamp. Make absolutely sure that it's all the way up. Another factor can be your foot--make sure that it's properly inserted and tight, because it's probably hitting the foot and breaking--not the bobbin. In addition, it could be hitting the needle plate. You can determine WHERE it's breaking by manually turning the hand wheel--ALWAYS towards you--several times to see the position of your needle relative to the foot and needle plate.

How do I replace the slide plate on my Singer 416?

Lift the sewing machine pressure foot and make sure the needle is not in the way. Slide the plate under the foot control. Use a flat head screw driver to lift the spring back onto the plate then slide it back.

How to fill a bobbin on singer sewing machine model 6268

Raise the presser foot and turn the hand wheel to put the needle at the highest position. Next open the slide plate by sliding it towards you. Make sure the bobbin is empty (remove any remaining thread or use a new bobbin). Slide the plate forward (partially closed) so that the arrow on the plate lines up with the arrow on the machine bed. Bring the thread from the needle under the presser foot and wind it around the presser foot screw (on the left of the assembly) once. Make sure that the thread is in the spring groove. Press the One-step Button hole A button (has a bobbin symbol by it). Then begin running the machine. Watch the winding process carefully and stop when you have enough thread on the bobbin. Do not let the thread continue to wind past the outermost line on the bobbin (black). Slide the plate fully closed and raise the needle. Pull the thread to the back of the machine to a length of 4" and cut the thread in the middle of the loop you just pulled through.

Now position your fabric under the presser foot, lower the presser foot and select your stitch. Begin sewing.

The manual is available for sale or download here: . Just enter the model number. The direct link is: . Pictures for winding the bobbin are on page 16 (page 18 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

slide open metal plate, there is a little white finger button with a target symbol on it just to the left. Slide this all the way left, leaving plate OPEN. If your top needle is threaded correctly, you should now be able to push the foot pedal to sew adn the bobbin will refill. make sure not to go past the outer white line on the bobbin case. good luck. the target button will go back to the original position when you slide the plate closed.
