Is the feed dog pushed to the up position? How about selecting a stitch length? I have a feeling watching the dvd and instruction manual will do wonders for you, If you lost your manual, go online to and download one for free,

Threading model 6233

that machine has what is called a 6 second threading style, you just snap the thread at the top first thread guide then take the thread down around the curved part then up over the take up lever then straight down to the needle. be sure your presser foot is in the raised position when threading the upper thread.

Singer quantum XL-150 how do i thread this machine?

All Singer models would have arrows/numbers to guide your top threading from the spool pin to top thread guide, for most machine start from your thread spool pin, to a thread guide follow arrow down then up into the take up lever and down to the needle thread guide then into the needle hole. Assuming you have wind and install the bobbin thread into the bobbin case, turn your hand wheel towards you makes the needle bar goes down,keep on turning till the needle bar is fully up again, pull the end of the top thread to pick out the bobbin/bottom thread. With your material/fabric under the presser feet, apply the presser feet lever down, you are ready to sew.

Singer 758 model and the material is not feeding through the machine. Needle is only going up and down in one spot.

here is a link for a free manual, check to see if the feed dog lever is up in the sewing position, if the feed dog lever is down then try to raise it up. if it will not raise then the machine needs to be check to see what's wrong with the feed dog.

have you checked your feed dogs are moving? have you dropped the feed dogs by accident? the feed dogs might need a drop of oil on the moving parts inside your machine.

Call Singer at 1-800-4singer and they will help you. I think a piece of the needle may be stuck in your feed dog

Make sure your presser foot is tight down. If the needle is going from side to side, it's doing it's job. If the stitches are coming out straight, the material is probably slipping back and forth to center area. The presser will eliminate this.

Thread bunches up from bobbin feed.

Remove the needle plate and clean the feed dogs there could be fluff gathering.
Check your needle is not damaged.
