Why does the bottom thread on my 185k Singer sewing machine keep tangling.


Your bottom thread looks like the top tension is too loose or not being fed through the tension disc.
1. While you thread do it with the pressure foot up. Make small pulls while threading to make sure there are no snags.
2. When you finish threading put the foot down. Check for resistance on the thread. There should be some; not excessive though.
3. Always start at four on tension and adjust as you need to.

How to time a sewing machine


Breaking needles is not an indication that your timing is off. If you are breaking needles, the most common cause is inserting your spool of thread so that the little notch on the spool that holds the loose end when it is not in use and when you first purchase it is facing your thread path, catching and holding up the thread and causing the needle to break. Another problem might be inserting the flat end of the needle improperly; generally, on modern machines with the bobbin system in the front, the flat part is inserted towards the back of the machine. You MUST have a user's manual; if you do not have one, go to the Singer site, and you can download it free.

How to thread singer 57817


here is a link for a free manual, read the manual competely thru
first and then if the machine has been sitting up for years look in
the manual for oiling instructions and then oil where it shows
and then sew on a scrap piece of fabric but don't use any thread
so the oil can move thru the machine and loosen it up,,
try using a new needle--one that is right for the fabric you sew

1. There is a right way & wrong way to insert the bobbin in the case --when you insert the bobbin in if it doesn't stitch correctly turn the bobbin over see if that helps or bobbin case is not inserted correctly
2. Lint has collected in the bobbin holder
3. The bobbin is damaged & doesn't turn smoothly
4. Lower thread tension is two tight

It keeps breaking the thread when sewing a few stiches, i need the manual to make adjustments, I work at a hospital and patients use this machine and we do not have a manual for it singer advance machine.


Sounds like it has been threaded wrongly or the tension is too tight. Try re-threading or loosening the tension slightly. Singer should be able to provide a downloadable manual on their web site, I think.

Sewing machine either breaks thread or comes unthreaded every time i try to sew.


Your threading is not right, totally remove your thread and rethread according to the manual directions and dvd. If, you still have problems call Singer at 1-800-4singer

Singer Simple.....not really!


You really should go on the Singer website and look up support and frequently asked questions. If, you cannot find your manual they have it there to download for free. I really think that you are not threading the machine right, check it with the presser foot up and the thread should feed freely, then lower the presser foot and it should not feed at all or very little. Most of the bunching of thread underneath is the fault of the top thread not the bobbin. Make sure you turn the handwheel towards you never away from you. Also, check your needle, inserted flat side away from you and, if it were me, I would use a new needle before I sewed again, This machine comes with a dvd, try watching it.
