Singer 6268, needle timing advice

I have a Singer Sewing machine, Model #6268. The threads have knotted up on the underside of the material. When I finally was able to pull it all out, it caused the needle to hit on the bobbin plate (hope that is right). Now the needle is bending, not going through. How can I adjust it back as it supposed to be? I have had this happen before, but it cost way too much to get it repaired. And I still don't know why this happens (the threads getting tangled).
Thanks!

The drop in bobbin on my Singer model 600 will jam up when sewing. It will be okay for a short time and than jam up again. It will cause the thread to knot up when sewing w/material. Help


may have to go into an authorized singer repairer for that problem..

might not just be the bobbin but the tension of the cotton winder for the bobbins
or needle pickup issue

My Singer 3116 Simple is tangling up by the bobbin and leaving knots of thread on the underside of material?


Thread it right...with the lever up. Then adjust your top tension.

If you still have problems check the bobbin carrier/shuttle for burrs. If you find burrs carefully sand with fine grit sand paper.

Try oiling the hook if you haven't recently.
Check you needle plate and hook for damage, they may need to be buffed or sanded smooth.
Check your upper tension discs for lint and double check your upper thread path (proper threading).
There are other things like hook timing, needle clearance or broken check spring that may be wrong but you need a technician for those things.
best of luck!

Singer 5525 sewing machine knots up thread on underside of fabric after three stitches


most commonly this is from incorrect threading top thread. Check manual for threading path or follow threading path usually marked by arrows on machine

Thread bunching


I discovered that when the thread is knotting up on the underside of the material that it is usually the threading on top and has nothing to do with the bobbin.
