Singer ProFinish Threading Problem

I carefully follow the manual on how to thread this machine. I believe I am threading it correctly. When I start a chain, however, the thread comes out of the hole on the upper looper. I have no idea how this happens and I'm getting extremely frustrated! Any help will be appreciated!

    I have had the same problem. Also, the needle breaks every time I use the machine. I have tried to call Singer but the line is busy. I am really sorry I bought this machine :( Does anyone know how to get help with customer service?

If you are sure it is threaded correctly, slacken the tension right off and adjust it a bit at a time until you achieve a good stitch. Make sure that the thread comes off the bobbin vertically and does not snag anywhere.

How to thread the singer 20u33? The tension assembly is new, don't know where the wire is sposed to be...


When you thread the top thread, the thread will drop down on the right side of the tension mechanism and go around the bottom (clockwise) and up the left side. Grab the thread somewhere above the tension mechanism with your right hand and then pull the toward the right (as though you are going to close the circle around the tension disk. The thread should pull on the metal wire (spring) and your thread should pop into the correct position of the tension disk. When you release the thread, the wire spring should pop back to the left. Then you will continue threading through the remaining thread guides and the take-up lever.

Here's a service manual for your machine (in case you need one):

I am having trouble getting the bobbin to function properly during sewing.


It could be the top thread is the problem. Might try removing all the thread. Consult the owner's manual for threading instructions. RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread so the thread will seat properly in the tension disk. Re-thread from the beginning carefully following the instructions--do not miss any spots or thread guides.

If top thread is still creating a mess of loops under the fabric, try tightening the upper tension. The tension is ideal when both upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

Thread from bobbin is not coming up and stitch is not proper


Visit this website http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html
enter in your model number and download the manual for your machine, threading issues usually either bobbin not in correctly, thread not in tension or machine incorrectly threaded, so review the manual threading instructions and follow them to trouble shoot your machine.

Singer 5430C bobbins thread always loopy


"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.
