SOURCE: my singer 4166 sewing machine won't pick up the bo...

I had the same problem straight out of the box. I decided to buy a new machine and came across the 4166. It had more than enough functions and seemed to run smoothly. I too have problems with the bobbin not threading so I took it back into the store thinking I was doing something wrong. The saleswoman had the same problem. I was going to exchange it for another but before leaving I wanted to check to see if it worked. Again, same problem so I left without a machine. I spoke to the owner only to be told that 30% Singer machines are lemons and have to be returned for servicing because they don't work from the start. This is a waste of money and time.
The only suggestion I can offer is to either forget about the machine or take it into be serviced.

There could be several things causing this.
First, be sure the bobbin is in the bobbin case correctly. There is usually a line diagram showing the correct placement or you can check the owner's manual.
Second, make sure your needle is inserted correctly. If it is not completely set in the housing, this can prevent the bobbin thread from being caught by the hook. The groove in the needle should be ffacing toward you to assure that the thread interacts with the hook.
Third, be certain the upper threading is correct...passing through all thread guides and correctly through tension and take up lever.
Finally, make sure the bobbin case is free of lint. The machine brush that came with the machine will clean this area well.
I hope one of these suggestions helps you solve your problem. If so, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice!

Where do I tighten bobbin thread


on the outside of the bobbin case where you pull the bobbin thread around and down a small; slot to under a small flat spring
that flat spring is the bobbin thread tension and is adjusted by the screw that holds that plate on
a very small amount of turn of that screw make a large difference to the tension
However if your problem is birdnesting under the material ( total mess) then the problem is not bobbin tension but the needle tension is too loose and not pulling up the bobbin thread properly

I received singer sewing machine 2623 machine and I do not have the manual. How can I get it and how do I fill the bobbin


Singer has manuals for most of their sewing machines available at their site. For the 2623, the manual is only available as a bound copy for $15. Go to http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals and enter the model number then click Search.

I believe on this model, you fill the bobbin with it on the metal pin on the top right of the machine. With a metal presser foot in place, bring the thread up and around the guide that pin. Wrap the thread a few times around the bobbin. Set the lever to the bobbin winding position and begin winding. Stop and trim the excess thread from your initial wraps after it is fully caught. Then complete winding the bobbin.

(On other Singer machines, you fill the bobbin in place with the bobbin cover moved halfway open.)

I hope this helps.

It's been years since I sewed anything and now I can't seem to get the bobbin to thread properly, I've tried several ways and none work. Help please


mszona_0.jpg
This is a picture of typical bobbin threading. The thread should go around the bobbin and come out through the slot in the same direction...see B1. The thread goes from inside the bobbin through the slot to the outside of the bobbin case. The screw adjusts the tension on the thread as it comes out.

If you mean how to thread it to wind the bobbin we'd need to know what model and brand of machine you have as they're a bit different in how that's done. In older machines it was often on top, sometimes towards the back of the machine towards the wheel. The thread went through several guides and it wound the bobbin only when you pushed the spool post that held the bobbin up against the wheel that caused it to turn, after releasing the hand wheel on the back so the needle wouldn't go up and down as it wound the bobbin.

I amhaving trouble with the thread brahing and I don;t know if it is the tension. Which way should the pobbing turn right or left and how do you set the tension For my Singer sewing machine


Check the upper threading and make sure it is threaded correctly. When you pull on the thread before it goes through the needle does it give a bit or does it break? If it is breaking when you pull then the tension is way too tight or it is threaded incorrectly. Make sure it isn't looped around some guide along the line too.

For the bobbin thread... when it is in the bobbin case outside of the machine dangle it by the thread. It should hang there until you flick your wrist a bit, which should cause some thread to release and drop the bobbin down towards the floor a bit. (If it just pulls out right to the floor it is too loose). Most bobbin tension is tightened by a small screw on the bobbin case near where the thread comes though. Breaking thread would not be from the bobbin thread being too loose. Too loose would cause looping on top side of the stitch not breakage.

Make sure the bobbin is in correctly. You should feel and hear a slight "click" when the bobbin goes in correctly.

I have a vintage 15-91 singer machine. the thread keeps jamming up by bobbin area. please advise what to do or what not to do....


the singer machine as a very fine adjustment that can only be set by a repair shop but i would suggest fisrt removing bobbin and looking for thread lint as this is a large reason for jamming as the retimming can get costly i would not suggest blowing into the bobbin as this will just push the lint in to the machine further

I have a Singer Imperial sewing machine, the bobbin winds in the machine, no manual with it. I have been trying to figure out how the bobbin is supposed to wind, I got it to do it one time trough trial and...


Does the bobbin have a metal "peak" on it? If so, drop it in the machine with the peak up. Slide the cover only about half way till the 2 arrows on the left match up. Thread the top as normal, put the machine in straight stitch. Thread the needle, then put thread under the foot and wrap thread around the post on the left. Leave foot up. Hold onto the end of the thread and start your machine. The bobbin should be winding now. After a few wraps you can let go of the thread and it should have broken off as you continue winding till the bobbin is full.
