My needle will not pick up bobbin thread on my singer protege model 2639

Try installing a brand new needle.

If it still will not work, most likely the machine has been knocked out of time. Take it for service.

I 've been using this 2639 Singer since 2006. It was working perfect until one day the bobbin case popped up away from the shuttle causing the needle to be blocked from moving. So, I removed the p

First change that needle. It's likely bent. A bent needle won't create a stitch.

Then double check your timing. It sounds like you have it ******** a bit... But that's hard to determine from a description. Before you start the timing process, make sure that your needle bar is in the correct position. (typically the upper timing mark on the needle bar is just below the lower needle bar guide when the needle is at its very lowest point) If necessary loosen the needle bar holder and make a correction. Once the needle bar is positioned correctly... then move on to the shuttle/needle timing.

Good luck!

The thread is looping and bunching up under the fabric. I have the tension set to 5 and I have rethread the thread. What do I try now?

It is a problem in your top threading, you may have tangled thread, or need a new needle. Try this test when you have rethreaded with the presser foot up, pull thread, it should feed smoothly, now lower presser foot, pull thread, it should barely move. This will seat your thread in the tension discs and hopefully you will have no more problems

Machine will not pick up the bobbin thread.

if your machine's needle threads from front to back, make sure that the flat part of the needle shank points to the rear of the machine. If it threads from left to right, the flat side should face right, etc.
