Looking straight on at the area where assembly goes, First clean and oil area, the jam was likely caused by accumulated dust or a small piece of thread . You should have three pieces, four including the bobbin itself. first piece to be replaced has a center post this piece goes into the machine by fitting it to the bobbin area, it will only go in one way so when it fits into place you will know. the next piece is a ring this piece has a small piece of metal attached to the top when looking at it correctly the two screws will be on top and there should be two indentions. first one is at 3 oclock and the other is at 9 oclock fit this piece into machine and there should be a lever on either side that turns around and rests in to indentions. replace your bobbin in the bobbin case ,be sure to thread the case correctly and load into newly assembled bobbin area making sure that it clicks into pplace

    When I did that, the needle would not go down unless I released the left side lever that holds the stuff in. But that is not a permanent fix, unfortunately.

Needle stops part way down and won't go any further


Sounds like a bad jam. Clean the machine (you may need to take the needle plate off as well as take the bobbin case and shuttle apart) and put in a new needle and try again.

Machine jams after 4 or 5 stitches. Bobbin thread locks up.


try these suggestions
change the needle
make sure the thread doesn't come off the thread take up lever--this
can jam the machine
make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case--this
can cause problems if the bobbin is turned the wrong way
make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged
make sure there are no burrs in the bobbin area or on the needle

The bobbin case on my 2273 (the whole thing) fell out and I need a diagram on how to put it back.


If this is the Singer 2273, then did the hook cover and hook come out? See the pictures on page 2 of the oiling diagram here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1235_oiling-2263.pdf .

If you need to replace these two parts, turn the handwheel until the hook race is in the left position. Then put in the hook (thickest part down) and then the hook cover (the side with the notch towards the machine and facing up). Rotate the hook retaining arms back towards the center of the hook cover to lock it in place. Now you should be able to put the bobbin case back in. Since this is a part that needs to be oiled regularly, wipe it out with a soft cloth and put 1-2 drops of sewing machine oil at point 6 (just to the right of center) in the shuttle before you replace the hook.

If additional parts have come out or the retaining arms are damaged, try finding the parts diagram for your model at the Singer site: http://www.singerco.com/support/replacement-parts-chart . THen see if a Singer dealer has replacements available.

I hope this helps.

Singer 2263 instruction manual does not show where to lubricate or how to adjust the hook which keep jamming


First make sure that the needle is fully up. Then you need to open the hinged front cover and unscrew the needle plate screws. Remove the bobbin. Brush out any lint now. Remove the bobbin case. Then snap the hook retaining arms outwards. Remove the hook cover and hook. Put no more than 2 drops of sewing machine oil on the the case (center right hand side). Then turn the hand wheel until the hook race is in the left position. Replace the hook and then the hook cover. Snap the hook retaining arms back into position. Replace the bobbin case and bobbin. Then replace the stitch plate.

Test the machine on a piece of waste fabric. If the hook keeps jamming, take the machine in for maintenance. The parts that may need to be replaced are the race or the shuttle hook. However without seeing the unit I do not know if there is not another problem. Some parts for the 2263 are available here: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/singer-2263-sewing-machine-parts.aspx .

Singer has a second manual available with the oiling instructions for the 2263 here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1213_oiling-2263.pdf . See the diagrams on this page for where things line up. The rest of the instruction manual is also online here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1180_2263%28eng_spa_fre%29.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Singer 8280 (prelude) I had 2 threads coming out from my bobbin area, so I decided to open it up and take a look. I accidentally took out the whole bobbin shuttle. The manual doesn't tell me how to...


Ok, hang on! This can get tricky! Remove the bobbin. Remove the presser foot and the needle. Remove the throat plate. This gives you plenty of room to monkey with your bobbin case. NOW, lay the bobbin case in its correct area and gently rotate it until it falls into place. It may take several tries. Once you're satisfied that it's secure, snap the holding clips into place and it should all fit nicely. THEN place your bobbin in the case correctly...check the diagram in the manual. Depending on the machine, some bobbins have the threads coming off counterclockwise and others have them coming off clockwise, but your manual should show. Sometimes, there's even a diagram on the throat plate or the bobbin case as well.
Good luck. Hope this works. If this solves your problem, please come back and rate my answer!

Singer machine problem .its wheelhand doesnot move and so hard,needle doesnot go down plz tell ,solution


First thing to do is take out the bobbin and bobbin case, there may be a small piece of thread jammed holding the machine back, if it is still tight after that oil with WD40 on all moving parts, if that fails it will be a shop job.
