Hi, ive just purchased a newish used singer 6038 sewing machine, every time i try to sew the thread keeps coming out of the needle and it is not sewing at all, ive checked the tension, checked i have...
Yes if the bobbing case is not put back correctly it can cause all sorts of problems. Do you have the instruction book for the machine? If so just have a look through and it should show you in detail how to take the bobbin and case out to clean it, then with these instructions you should be able to fit it correctly.
Otherwise if you have a look at the metal case that the bobbin case fits into (its called a hook race) and there should be markers like an arrow or lines, when the bobbin case is fitted back in these markers are lined up and there also should be a notch at the front of the case and this sits to the left of the stopper. Just make sure there are no threads caught up in the hook race, that can stop your machine from working too. The only thing that I can think could be causing your thread to come out is the tension but if you've checked that just try and fix the bobbin, this may be all thats wrong.
Good luck, hope this helps.
