Question about Sewing Machines
I have tried everything short of standing on my head and still can't
get the bobbin thread to raise. I have changed my needle, adjusted the
top thread tension both ways, re-threaded the machine many times,
changed bobbins and rethreaded it twice, and read the book cover to cover.
any suggestions would be very helpful. I have a brand new (only used
once before now) Singer Inspiration 4220/4228. please help asap!!!!
I have a singer inspiration my needle is hitting the bobbin case and needle keeps on breaking not picking up the thread . how can i fix the bobbin case. help

Check the flat side of the needle is facing the rear of the machine.....thread needle when needle is at top of its travel....with 100mm/4in excess length
Set top tension to 4
Pull about 75mm/3in of thread thru bobbin case
Rotate handwheel manually one revolution holding needle thread loosely......does it pick up bobbin thread ?
If this still won't pick up, the timing is out, take it back to the Dealer and ask them to restore the setting, as it should not lose timing that easily unless it was marginal leaving the factory, or you have been quite brutal with heavy workload of heavy duty fabrics which you say is not the case..
...items are sold and need to be "fit for their intended purpose" whether new or second hand, with a new item, you have the added protection of a 12 mth warantee....
....phone them to explain your dilemma, what you have done to try to solve it according to manual etc and arrange a time to take it back..
...they will want your good words about them to your friends and that you go back to buy other things over time.

Maybe you should try and take the needle out and make sure it is installed correctly or you could make sure that the bobbin case is installed correctly as well, since on this modle it tends to pop out.
