Question about Singer 3820 Mechanical Sewing Machine
When I tried to change the bobbin the needle does not go all the way into the machine to catch the bobbin thread. Can I fix this myself?
Thanks for using FixYa. Is the bobbin case pushed all the way in? Is your needle up too high or down too low in the needle holder? The upper thread could be tangled. Remove the thread completely from the machine. The correct size spool cap should be used for the size of the thread spool and then re-thread the machine. Try lowering it a little and see if that helps and use a scrap of material to test it out. Make sure the flat part of the needle rests on the flat part of the holder. You probably need to insert a new needle. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
