Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Hi, I just opened my Christmas Singer gift, model 4166. I was able to partially fill a bobbin, took it off the post, returned the post to the left, and the light went out. I have unplugged everything and started over. No luck. No power to the machine. The wheel can be turned by hand. The outlet has power. I tried holding down the foot control like is suggested on page 9. Any suggestions for me?

    Since I hadn't heard within 48 hours I did go ahead and find the name of the closest warranty center (3 hours away) and plan to take the machine there before the 90 days are up.

    Thanks for your assistance.

Singer 7258 error e2 when winding bobbin


I had this problem too. What I did was turn the post the bobbin sits on to the left (lefty-loosy) and kept re-booting the sewing machine until the bobbin started to spin correctly and the needle disengaged! I was so happy I figured it out, I did not want to return the sewing machine.

How to fill a bobbin on singer sewing machine model 6268


Raise the presser foot and turn the hand wheel to put the needle at the highest position. Next open the slide plate by sliding it towards you. Make sure the bobbin is empty (remove any remaining thread or use a new bobbin). Slide the plate forward (partially closed) so that the arrow on the plate lines up with the arrow on the machine bed. Bring the thread from the needle under the presser foot and wind it around the presser foot screw (on the left of the assembly) once. Make sure that the thread is in the spring groove. Press the One-step Button hole A button (has a bobbin symbol by it). Then begin running the machine. Watch the winding process carefully and stop when you have enough thread on the bobbin. Do not let the thread continue to wind past the outermost line on the bobbin (black). Slide the plate fully closed and raise the needle. Pull the thread to the back of the machine to a length of 4" and cut the thread in the middle of the loop you just pulled through.

Now position your fabric under the presser foot, lower the presser foot and select your stitch. Begin sewing.

The manual is available for sale or download here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals/search . Just enter the model number. The direct link is: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1272_6268-_-6268_6267-wholeas-of-6_23_05-special.pdf . Pictures for winding the bobbin are on page 16 (page 18 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

Bobbin thread is loose (under stich)


Not a tension problem, refer to manual and rethread the top thread, 95% + this fixes problem.

Bobbin filling on Singer 626


The Singer 626 has a self-winding bobbin. You place the empty bobbin in the bobbin thingie (sorry for being so untechnical). On the left of the bobbin you will see a "lever" with a circular top on it (I think it is red-ish) Again, sorry for being so untechnical. Press the "lever" down. Thread your machine, thread the needle, wrap the excess thread from the needle around the knob that tightens the needle and holds it in place and press your foot down on the foot pedal. The bobbin will automatically wind as you hold the foot pedal down. Do not wind the thread onto the bobbin past the outer white line.
