Question about Singer 8280 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I know you do not want to hear it but your threading is not correct. Do this test, put the presser foot up, pull on the top thread it should pull smoothly,now put the presser foot down, pull the thread again and it should barely move. You have to make sure that the thread is getting the correct tension in the threading path and not tangled. Now check your bobbin threading, is the thread pulling smoothly? If, not see the way your bobbin is unwinding, do you have it in backwards? By the way, how is your needle, when is the last time you changed it? Do so now and make sure that it right size for your material and inserted right, flat side face the rear. Have you done any maintenance? Like oiling, cleaning out lint and such? Refer to your manual for oiling points. If, you do not have a manual go to www.singerco.com and download a free one and enlarge the diagrams to see everything really clear and save a copy.
