I received this item from a grandmother and with it came no instructions. I am totally clueless on how to do anything with a sewing machine. I am in need of alot of help. To start I need to know what bobbin model and bobbin case I need. Did not come with either.
Take your machine to any sewing store that sells parts and accesories and they will be able to match the bobbin case to your machine. I am still using the bobbins that came with mine but you can pick up the metal bobbins at Walmart for under $4 for 6 of them.

CHECK THESE FIRST::
MAKE SURE NEEDLE IS INSERTED THE RIGHT DIRECTION. LOOK AT YOUR INSTRUCTION BOOK.
MAKE SURE INSERTED IS TOTALLY INSERTED.
CHECK TO SEE IF THE BOBBIN THREAD IS STUCK. ALSO, ENOUGH LENGTH OF BOBBIN LENGTH EXTENDED TO ALLOW THE NEEDLE TO PULL IT UPWARDS.
MAKE SURE THE BOBBIN THREAD IS INSERTED THE RIGHT DIRECTION AND SET WITH CORRECT TENSION.
CHECK TOP NEEDLE TENSION TO INSURE THERE IS TENSION ENOUGH TO PULL THE BOBBIN THREAD ABOVE THE THROAT.
IF THESE DON'T WORK YOU MAY NEED TO GO TO YOUR LOCAL REPLAIRMAN.
Make sure that when you start a seam that you grasp both threads and pull gently as you begin. It keeps them from being drawn into the needle plate. get into this habit and it will save you a lot of grief
A sewing machine operator can often help themselves when their machine does not operate properly. Here are some simple instructions, which if properly used can save time and mechanics service calls.

Do you have the thread coming off of the bobbin the right way? How about a new needle? Sometimes it has to do with the tension, needle and good thread. And the bobbin being wound evenly. You can always call Singer at 1-800-4singer and ask them if there is something else to do.
"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.
they are not accurate, but also this machine is not the greatest with all types of thread, try using rayon or polyester thread when trying to wind a bobbin (cotton thread on these machines are typically sometimes hard) let me know and if this does not work ill send over what I have as far as directions
Always remember T-N-T. Thread, Needle, Tension. Assuming its threaded properly, is the needle all the way in and facing the right direction? These symptoms also suggest the bobbin may be in the bobbincase upside down thus turning in the wrong direction.
Hope this helps.
