Question about Singer 5050 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I believe the timing is off - when the needle comes down it hits a part beneath the bobbin and breaks. I took it in for repair and it came back doing the same thing. They said it is a "timing issue". There are no singer repair centers in Colorado and the place I was using was forced to close with 2 days notice by the bank!
1.Remove the machine needle plate.
2. Remove the bobbin case.
3.Insert a new needle.
4.Turn the handwheel towards you by hand, and watch the
needle going down.It should go down all the way, and start coming Up again, WITHOUT TOUCHING ANYTHING.
Check, and let me Know.
