Remove the 2 screws in the needle plate. Lift off the plate.Take out the bobbin case and examine it for rough spots or nicks. If there are any it will be necessary to buff them with an emery stick or fine sandpaper. Once the rough spot has has been smoothed, buff it with some very fine steel wool. There must be no rough spots on this bobbin case.Clean all the lint from inside the hook area. Do not pull the wick from the center of the hook. Place the bobbin case in the hook area so that it sits flush and does not bind when the handwheel is turned.Reinstall the needle plate, thread the machine, insert the bobbin and turn the wheel to pick up the bobbin thread and see that it doesn't bind.Test sew

The bobbin thread will not feed up to the sewing deck


Get a q-tip and clean out all of the lint from the bobbin area. Then make sure the bobbin case is in properly. Make sure you're using the correct bobbin size. Then thread the bobbin again & see if it's working properly

Does the singer model 3820 take a special bobbin? I cannot get it to feed the thread up to the needle.


It takes a singer or universal bobbin with a flat top - not one of the plastic ones that has a curve to the top.

Singer 3820 Bobbin Issues? I can't sew!


Unthread the machine completely, remove the bobbin.

Make sure that the bobbin case is securely in its place.

Turn the handwheel and ensure that the bobbin case is not jamming.

Turn the handwheel until the take-up lever is in the highest position.

Raise the presser foot and rethread the machine.

Chaeck the upper tension setting and set it around 5.

ALways make sure that you start sewing, stop sewing and thread the machine with the TAKE-UP LEVER IN THE HIGHEST POSITION.

Good luck!
