Question about Singer 1507
I gave this sewing machine to my daughter-in-law for Christmas. In working with the machine to prepare myself to help her with it, I have been terribly frustrated with it. I purchased the machine in Madrid, Spain where my daughter-in-law lives and the instruction manual is in Spanish. My limited Spanish does not provide much help in trying to resolve technical problems. I called the Singer office in Valencia, but they did not have anyone available who can speak English. I have already spent 20 to 30 hours trying to resolve the problem and haven't conquered it yet.
The first problem is that I need is an instruction manual in English. How can I get one? The second problem is that my sewing machine needle will not go down and pick up the bobbin thread. It sticks before going down deep enough. Prior to this problem, the thread underneath the material kept knotting and balling up. The top stitch looked fine-- bottom stitch a mess. I've adjusted tension etc. and nothing seems to work. Is there a phone number I can call and talk with a live person about the problem.
I was having this sam problem last night when trying out my new maching. I was putting the thread through the wrong part of the bobbin holder. If you go to singer's website, you can download a free copy of the guide or buy one for like $15 or something.

Check for a thread jam in the bobbincase. Lower looping is most commonly caused by a lack of top tension. Raise the presserfoot and rethread themachine again. Once threaded put down the presserfoot and pull the thread through the needle. if it pulls through easily it is still not threaded correctly. When threaded correctly the needle should bend but not break when you pull the thread through. good luck.
