Do you have your manual? Because it is almost always the top threading, either tangled thread or a bent or dull needle causing the problem. You can download your manual at www.singerco.com for free and enlarge the detail of the diagrams for threading. I just hope that it is something simple and not your timing because that is not a do it yourself job, unfortunately. You can also call Singer customer service at 1-800-4singer. and get their advice. Good luck.

I have Singer 5040c machine i was cleaning this machine it was working fine before, but machine is breaking needle all the time ,i can't sew anything, i just remove belt from bottom part cleaned it...


Your machine needs a professional to fix your timing and tune it up. You may have messed up the timing when you took off the belt. It is worth getting it fixed.

Bunching at the bottom


Is your bobbin clean and inserted correctly? (counter clockwise) A little fuzz can be a problem. Clean with a q-tip and oil if needed.

Help with threading info for a Singer 5040c


I have the same problem. Driving me nuts. The tension dial is broken, as far as I can tell. Just craps out from time to time. Sometimes turning it on and off helps. I personally think it's a problem with the electronic controls.
