SOURCE: how do you thread a

all machines thread the same. TTN tension, take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.

Probably just the needle. Try turning it 180 degrees

SOURCE: My Singer 507 sewing machine keeps on jamming up,

If you have the 507 with the grey or black plastic bobbin case you may need to undo the two screws on the right hand side on the silver bit and push it over to the bobbin case so it is tight or enough gap between the bobbin case and the silver bit about a thread width.

The tension knob will not turn below four. The thread keeps breaking.


check that the thread is between the plates and not behind them
thread breaking can be from wrong size needle eye, poor quality thread , old thread and needle/ eye timing

I need the correct setting for my singer merritt 3140...I keep getting bundling thread from the bobbin


Always remember that it is the opposite of what you think, it is not the bobbin thread - it is your upper threading, you don't have it threaded right. Go to brother.com and download the manual for free and then enlarge the threading page. I am sure that you will be amazed, because I sure was. Good luck

Singer/merritt 2430 bobbin fill


If you lift up the thread holder, the bobbin holder is inside. Loosen the hand guide to stop the needle from going up and down. Pull the thread around the top thread guide and back into the bobbin holder. Thread the bobbin and move the bobbin over so the guage is "inside" the bobbin. As for the manual, the Singer Merritt 2404 is applicable to the 2430 if that helps.

I have model 8280 and the bobbin thread keeps bunching up on the bottom. I have tried to rethread it but it keeps happening.


i think your putting in your bobin backwards,
to check put your bobin in and hold bobin , and bobin case by thread if it unrolls its backwards,
hope this helps!!
