Question about Singer CG550 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Lost spool cap/holder

Does the thread run through the cap/holder? Or does it just hold the spool of thread in place? This is using the horizontal thread and a top loan bobbin.

    If your machine is runing slow you may just need to adjust the speed. Unplug the machine from the outlet and turn over the foot pedal, there is a speed limit/adjustment in the foot pedal. You will need a very small flat bladed scredriver or you'll just need to pop open the foot pedal. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Singer 7422 bobbin thread bunching up

I assume you checked to see there are no needle bits in the bobbin case holder.
Without looking at the machine it is difficult to diagnose the problem. It could be any one or a combination of problems, timing, needle bar height, damage to the hook and base etc.
I strongly suggest you have it looked at by a sewing machine tech.

SOURCE: Thread is not pulling off spool while trying to fill a bobbin.

There are a couple things that come to mind. If your plate is not pushed all the way up where it engages the metal tab on the bobbin, it will not wind properly. Second, if you are using a generic or an old bobbin, you need to replace it. I have seen many machines drive the owners crazy and it turned out to be a bad bobbin.

I looked at the 4210, here http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html

And I do not see any adjustment. Refer to the page for installing the bobbin - are you using the right size bobbin?

How to thread on a singer 4411. Thank you


To thread the upper thread, make sure that the needle bar is fully up, using the hand wheel. Put the thread spool on the spool pin and secure it with the spool holder. Use the end of the spool holder that is closest to the spool size. Bring the thread through first guide to the left of the spool holder. Slide it past and behind the guide before pulling it into the guide. Then bring the thread to the pre-tension spring. Similarly, the thread goes behind the spring and then comes forward. Next bring the thread down through the channel and up through the adjacent one further to the left. It helps to hold the thread between the spool and the thread guide. Once you bring the thread up through the second channel bring it from right to left through the slotted eye of the take-up lever. Bring the thread down and through the horizontal thread guide, the thin guide clamp needle and to the needle. Thread the needle from front to back.

The manuals for most Singer sewing machines are available from the manufacturer's site: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual for the 4411 is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1230_4411_heavy_duty_esf.pdf . See page page 16 (page 23 of the PDF) for pictures of the guides.

I hope this helps.

How does the thread holder work


It sounds like you are asking how to use the spool cap. These are put on after the spool of thread to hold the spool in place.

Bernina artista 180 bottom stitch bunching


bunching under the material is bird nesting is a result of loose needle thread tension thread the machine up to the point of threading the needle
pull on the thread and you should have a reasonable resistance to pulling the thread
adjust the tension until you get that then thread the needle
while you may be using the tension settings if there is a problem in the tension plates area , the tension will not get high enough regardless of the indicated setting
bobbin tension can be reasonably loose
correct tension is when both threads meet at the center of the materials being sewn

Sewing machine design


It sounds like the spool cap is broken or defective. It should fit snugly on the spool pin. If it is constantly falling off, then try finding a replacement. The horizontal spool pin design helps the machine pull the thread off the spool because the thread spool does not need to spin. The added pressure of spinning a thread spool contributes to tension issues (especially if you are using large thread spools that are so common now days).

On new machines, frequently the thread cutter is on the back of the presser foot lifter.

The thread guide above the needle is usually threaded from the left side because the thread tends to be pulled toward the right.

Unfortunately, what you are experiencing are pretty much common functions with most newer sewing machines, so even changing machines may not result in any greater degree of satisfaction.

Need to put bobin in a merritt 4530


Flip the presser switch up to raise the presser foot. Turn the hand wheel counterclockwise until the needle is in its highest position.
  • 2Hold the hand wheel in place with your left hand while turning the hand wheel knob counterclockwise with your right hand to loosen the hand wheel knob.
  • 3Place the desired spool of thread on the spool pin so that the pin fits all the way through the hole in the center of the spool. Put the spool holder onto the end of the spool pin that is sticking through the spool of thread and press firmly to ensure that the spool holder keeps the spool in place.
  • 4Grasp the end of the thread and hold it taut between the thumb and index fingers of both hands. Snap the taut section of thread into the thread guide post located to the left of the spool pin.
  • 5Pull the end of the thread gently. Wrap the thread around the bobbin winder tension disk near the left front on top of the machine, starting at the side of the tension disk facing you and wrapping around in a clockwise direction.
  • 6Poke the end of the thread through the small hole in the bobbin from the inside out so that the loose end of the thread sticks through the top of the bobbin. Put the bobbin on the spindle, or bobbin winder, and gently slide the bobbin winder to the right.
  • 7Hold the loose end of the thread in place while pressing down on the foot pedal to start the machine. Hold the foot pedal down until the bobbin is as full as desired. The machine will automatically stop once the bobbin has reached capacity.
  • 8Cut the loose end of the thread using scissors. Slide the bobbin winder to the left and remove the bobbin. Hold the hand wheel in your left hand and tighten the hand wheel knob with your right hand by turning it clockwise

    How do you replace the spool pin on a babylock ellure sewing machine


    Place the cone of thread on your right, at the back of the machine. Bring the thread up and behind the bobbin winder spindle. (where the bobbin sits) Place the largest spool cap on the empty horizontal spool pin and take the thread through the hole of the spool cap. From this point thread the machine normally. This and many other common questions are found on this link click here http://www.babylock.com/support/FAQ/?FAQ=2 If you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick

    Why does my Gutterman thread keep breaking on my 6600? I was told this was a good thread to use a Janome dealer?


    Have you got the thread aerial up and using the thread cap on top of the spool of thread to ensure it feeds off smoothly. Also need to look at the thread spool, some of them have a little cut in the top where the thread end is placed to keep neat. If the thread is catching on this, just turn the spool up the other way and use the cap to hold thread away from the edge of the spool.

    Gutterman is a good quality thread so you need to check that there isn't something in the thread path catching the thread and affecting the tension which is why it usually breaks. It could be a burr on the bobbin holder, the black plastic tensioning device which sits on a magnet. I have managed to damage 3 of these with my 6600P by trying to stitch too heavy weight seams, the bobbin holder moves and then the needle strikes it, once to the point of piercing right through it!

    So have a look in the bobbin area, refer to your manual if you haven't removed the bobbin holder before. There is two little red marks that need to line up when it is in the right location. If you can see damage on the bobbin holder, you could take it out and try to file down the burring with a nail file or very fine grade sandpaper and then put back in again. The needle thread could be catching on a burr as it comes around during the stitch process.

    Also, look at the top tension dial, turn it to zero and clean between the discs with the selvage edge of a clean piece of cotton waste. Then turn tension back to 5 and thread up everything and try again.

    If you have tried all the above without success then perhaps take it back to the dealer and ask them to test sew it for you and see if they can spot the problem.

    What are the spool holder caps and nets for?


    i have never used nets on my overlocker. I have used them to stop the thread from coming off when not on the machine. Are the spool holders like a tee ****? If so they are to hold the cone shaped thread spools.If they are like a disc, you can put them over the cotton to stop it being pulled off the stand, although i never used them on an overlocker
