Having trouble with tension loose threads on back of material

Your upper thread tension is too loose. Tighten it a little and test. (Righty-tighty, Lefty-loosey.) When the upper thread and bobbin thread meet in the middle of your fabric, the tension is correct.

Broken horizontal spindle for Singer 2250 where an how do I fit a new one?

There is a product on-line called the "Wonder Thread Guide" (made in USA). ** F&E Company, Montrose, CO 81403**

I used it to replace a broken thread spindle, it works by sliding a spindle over the stub of the broken one, so thread stand upright instead horizontally. It is MARKETED to eliminate tangling, twisting, breakage, etc. Functions on all sewing/embroidery / quilting machines.

My singer 9005 wont sew. I threaded everything correct. but it wont sew two pieces together at all. I think its bobber prroblems, as it takes a while for me to thread it through.

If, you do not have your manual, go to and download one for free. Click on customer support and instruction manual then 9005, You can enlarge your diagrams for threading etc, save the manual on your computer besides printing it out. I am hoping it is not your timing because that is not a diy job, you need special tools and expertise to do it. Good luck

I've just bought a Singer Serenade 2250 but the instruction manual is all in Spanish. Don't really want to pay £13 for an English one, is there anywhere I can download a free one?

you can find it on the singer website, just type the model number and download for free:

Bobbin knotting & jamming on Singer 2250

Put the tensions back to the factory setting.

Re-thread the machine with the presser foot up and make sure the bobbin thread is feeding from the bobbin in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

Change the needle to one that is new and appropriate for the type of sewing that is being done.

If problem continues take the machine back for assistance if you purchased it from a sewing machine dealer. They usually do not take "returns".

Or, back to the store that it was purchased from if not from a dealer. You may have a limited time in which it can be returned.

I had a received a sewing machine and it was doing the same thing.
I brought it to a sewing place to get it checked out.
