Nice solid machine that one, top tension on 4 or 5, make sure the bobbin turns anti clockwise in the bobbin case, if the thread is pulling out too tight slacken the screw on the bobbin case ant clockwise about a quarter of a turn at a time and test, you should only just be able to pull the thread through with slight resistence

The bobbin housing in singer model 9410 keeps moving out of position


After you put the bobbin case in, release it, and then pull on it to make sure it is in correctly.
The gathering is called a "bird's nest", and is caused by the machine not being threaded correctly.
Rethread the machine top and bobbin.
Then, sew a test stitch on a scrap of like material.

My singer model 237 makes a stitch that doesn't look right. The bottom thread is just goes through the top thread loops under the material


Hi, if stitches are off, there is a problem with balance between the upper and lower stitch adjustments. You have to tweak these. Also, make sure there is no lint in the bobbin case area or under the feeddogs. Here is an excellent blog for 237 Fashion Mate owners. You are lucky to have one of these from the 1960's. http://blog.sew-classic.com/2010/02/02/singer-237-fashion-mate-sewing-machine-reveiw.aspx
Happy Sewing!

SINGER CURVY: It jammed while sewing felt. Taking apart the bobbin area, I can see that the needle hits the bottom of the "floor". The bobbin is not catching or moving.


I think that your should try a new needle, it may be bent or have burr on it. It problem persists call Singer at 1-800-4singer, good luck

Singer simple the machine keeps jaming


I would say that the threading is wrong somewhere, watch your dvd and read the owners manual, also go to Singer.com FAQ for your machine, If the jamming is underneath, it is the top threading problem, on top, it is the bobbin thread either has lint or stray thread or thread not coming out the right direction for your bobbin, I am sure that it is just a simple solution, I also use metal SA 156 bobbins and have no problems,

The bobbin case on my Singer Inspiration 4210 sewing machine keeps popping up in the back causing my thread to bunch up underneath. What is causing this? Is the bobbin case in wrong? How is it supposed...


From what I gather on other sites, your thread has to be threaded under tension.... You have to make sure you hear a click when your bringing your thread down to the bottom of the "arm". Also, I thought the bobbin case was rather loosely held in its place, I adjusted this by unscrewing the black plate and moving it over just a smidge. The bobbin is supposed to have some wiggle room, but it kept popping up and making the tiny adjustment seems to have done the trick....for now...

Top tension about 4 or 5, make sure the bobbin turns anti clockwise, make sure you only use a mercerised thread no thicker than a number 40 and the bobbin thread should pull through with slight resistence only.
