Question about Singer Sewing Machines
Hi. My old singer sewing machine won't raise the bobbin thread suddenly. What is the problem? It worked fine until the cotton snapped and after re-threading it just won't do it. I know I thread it in the right way, something has changed. The question is, can I fix it or I have to take it in for repair?
Hi. The two main reasons why the top thread doesn't pick up the bobbin thread is either the needle is inserted wrong or the needle is bent. Since your machine was sewing properly until the thread broke, I'd be inclined to think the needle may have gotten bent. Sometimes this can happen if you sew over a pin.
Change the needle (making sure the flat side of the needle shank is inserted properly for your machine) and see if that solves the problem. Let me know if it helps, ok?
