Singer Model 5523 runs but doesn't make stitches. Needle is threaded and bobbin is fine. It moves but when I check the stitches there are none. Thread is not breaking.


I am not an expert on anything, least of all sewing machines...

The needle should carry the top thread under the table and make a loop that picks up the bottom thread from the shuttle and it is the interaction between the two threads with equal tension that creates the stitches.

The major activity of a sewing machine takes place under the table and in particular it is the timing of that activity in relation to the needle movements that is essential.
The timing is critical but mostly non-adjustable. I suggest you ensure below the table activity is actually taking place and then revisit the winding of the thread onto the shuttle reel and inserting it into the shuttle...

Threading up a bobbin in a singer 560 sewing machine


I'm guessing it's probably the same as mine (8280). This is what the manual says: "Hold the bobbin case with one hand, insert the bobbin so that the thread runs in a clockwise direction. Pull the thread through the **** and under the finger. Hold the bobbin case by the hinged latch and insert into the shuttle." It's hard to describe, but if you've sewn before, it should come back quickly. To be more specific, hold the bobbin case in your left hand, insert the bobbin so the thread is coming up from underneath, pull thread through the **** and into the part where the hole is. If you slide the thread around, it will fit into the slot in there. Pull the latch out and insert it into the shuttle.

Hope this helps.

My Singer 5050C wants to bunch the thread underneath


Make sure to thread machine with the presser foot raised. Then make sure thread gets in between the tension discs and that you have the machine threaded correctly with the thread going up and into the take-up arm. tension should be set at 4-5.
