Refer to page 49 of your manual.

Turn off the power.

Remove the face place.

Raise the needle to it's highest position and the bobbin case can be removed.

Clean the area from lint and any thread that may be causing the jam.

Replace the bobbin case back into the shuttle.

If you do not have a manual, you can download one for your machine at the Singer Company website.

Wheel will not turn on my machine

Several things can keep your machine from turning. Thread can be jammed in the hook area, around the shaft by the hand wheel as well as near the take up lever. It is also possible you can have the machine in bobbin wind mode. That would be the first place to check.
Start with removing the bobbin then the bobbin case or bobbin basket.
Try to move the hand wheel back and forth as you do this. Then remove the cover that holds the hook in place. Remove the hook if this does not fix your machine you may need to take it in for service.

On my 2140...The black thingy that the bobbin case fits onto is loose in that hard to fix

Look for articles quoting hook, base and bobbin case. Youtube is excellent on things like this. There should be a clip either side to lock the piece in place.

I am using an old singer sewing machine. the fabric is not moving when i sew..


Make sure your feeddogs are up. That is the little jagged looking plate under the pressure foot. There should be a setting on your machine that will move it up and down.

If they are up then the next thing I would suspect is that the bobbin is not in correctly. If it is a normal round bobbin that fits in a bobbin case, hold the bobbin in front of you so that the thread end is on top and the thread is going away from you, and slide it into the bobbin case. Feed the thread through the right openings in the bobbin case. When you pull the thread end the bobbin should turn clockwise.

My needle won't move even with hand wheel. Feed dogs move. Bobbin turns. Bobbin winder is off. Did same thing last night then worked when I turned it on this morning. Quit with 6 inches left of 12 yard...

You have a gumed up basting device, You can try to fix yourself but should be taken to a bernina teck for a fix. Take the end cap/head cap/ side panel/ needle bar panel off. It is one screw on the left side.
Remove neddle
Find the needle bar
On the needle bar there is a black small pice, it is round and has a little tab that stitcks off it.
Pull the needle down and push/pull/wiglle soft on the small black tab.
There is a small pin inside that should clip into a hole in the needle bar.
This should get your machine sewing again but the basting device realy should be cleaned and adjusted, should be around $45-100.
Hope this helps.

I tried to change the position of the zipper foot and ended up breaking the needle and now the bobbin thread keeps snapping when I try to sew. What should I do to fix this problem?

There could be a couple of general reasons for this to happen.
First, the tension in the bobbin holder could have tightened when you were trying to fix the needle. I don't explain them, I just know strange things happen when you try to fix one thing.
Secondly, I can't tell how old your machine it, but I know that the mechanism that holds the bobbin holder can become jammed and the thread wound around it. That too will cause the bobbin to not feed properly. You need to be sure the area around the bobbin holder is clear of all threads.
How did you try to change the position of the zipper foot? Did you just change the needle position and move the foot to the other side or did you do something else? I'd need to have more information to tell you anything more specific.

I cannot ge the bobbin case to stay in for my

unscrew the black plate that holds the bobbin case in place and move it over (to the left) ust a tiny bit. It still needs wiggle room, but moving that plate should help it stay in better.

Can't get the bobbing holder back in place

lambchopp22 the bobbin case "the black thing" can be tricky to get back in but first you may need to get a new bobbin case because that is what can cause the whole bridnesting thing check to see if you have a nick or a hole in the bobbin case. then be sure you have the bobbin in correctly this also can cause the bridnesting thing to happien. after you make sure that the case is ok or get a new one turn the hand wheel toward you until the metal hook is at the one o'clock postion you might have to move the hand wheel back and forth to get it to slide in correctly. hope this helps you out

If model 2010, the problem is a part metal- part plastic part attached to the bottom of the bobbin winding lever, the white tear-shaped thing with the arrow on it. If that will turn past the center of the bobbin it's broken inside. to try a do-it-yourself fix, turn upside down, remove 4 screws, including one by the plug (which must be pulled out for safety anyway) remove bottom case. looking at left end of the works, move the bobbin lever and you'll see the broken part move. The plastic part should be broken about half-way down. You can see how the part should push the white plastic bobbin winding shaft up and down when lever moved. the part can be removed by loosening the 2 tiny hexnuts holding it on the metal shaft. you'll need the smallest size allen (hex) wrench there is. NOTE where the part is at bottom of the metal shaft for when you put have to put it back on. be careful to hold the bobbin winding shaft itself in place, but it's easy to see how it goes back in if it pops out. if the break is clean (like my wife's that I just fixed this way yesterday!) you can put a drop or 2 of good crazy glue in the break, making sure lined up on the sides, then clamp in a vise (or hold firmly together with pliers) for at least 10 mins, longer better. wait at least an hour before putting back. putting back on is a little tricky but you move the bobbin lever to left (open) position, make sure it's just on the end of the shaft (shaft barely protruding) and see where the part isn't pushing the bobbin winding shaft. re-tighten with hex wrench then see if the repaired part now pushes the bobbin winding shaft up and down when you move the lever back and forth. Turn back over and move the lever without a bobbin spool- you should see shaft move up in the middle of bobbin case where it will engage the bottom of the bobbin spool where the x is.
Now if part can't be fixed it is available from auth Singer service center in you state but runs $40 or so. they'll try to tell you they have to install it because of special anti-static gloves that wont fry your motherboard on the machine's computer, but the center in Michigan finally said they would mail it to me. hope this helps! funny I just saw this after fixing our machine which hadn't been used for a long time until I decided I might as well look inside if I was going to have to buy her a new machine!!!

Needle Keeps Moving While Sewing and Bobbin Wont Thread

Hi Nikki,

The problem seems to be of the needles alignment. If you are using a half bobbin type (D type) needle, makes sure you have used the proper number & size and also fastened it well so that the flat side is firmly fixed/clasping the inner side of the needle hold. That black thing which I feel is the fly-nut that helps you tighten/clamp the needle to its hold. Then after having done that, slowly turn the wheel manually to see whether the needle is going in thru the hole in a straight line and if you can, look underneath to se if the knotter ring (the one that looks like having fangs) comes close as the neele advances inward. All these movements HAVE TO BE syncronised. Only then you will be able to stitch the fines of fabrics speedily. Also make sure oyu are not tugging on the front end of the fabric too hard as this may cause the needle to go in a diagonal manner thus causing it to snap. Take care as to NOT to be too close to the needle while at high speeds. The snapping pieces can fly right into your eyes/nose causing serious injury.

Hope that does it Nikki...

Putting back the pieces of bobbin case on Kenmore Mini Handi

This is for front loading bobbin..........

The Shuttle hook will look very much like this, and marries this to the "half moon" of the fixed shuttle.

The retaining collar ring that holds it all together has a plate like protrusion (like bull horns), this faces to the top and to the back.......there should be a small lug (or two) with corresponding small hole or slot on the fixed housing (hook race) that locates the ring tightly in the correct position.

There should be 2 swivel arms (black plastic at 4 o'clock & 8 o'clock)) that move to hold the whole thing together by clipping onto a small lug on each side of the ring.

If you tip the machine 30 degrees on its back while you do all this, it makes the process easier, as things are less likely to fall the back with a soft object for convenience (tissue box, pillow etc)

The bobbin case goes in after the housing is assembled, if you try to do it first, it will prove more difficult.

If this is not quite accurate for your model a photo of the bits would be helpful
