Question about Singer 57817 Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

I just bought this used off of ebay from a supposedly top rated seller who specializes in sewing machines. I will never buy from ebay again. The bobbin on this machine jams no matter what I do. I have followed the threading instructions to a T. I have tried changing the tension and that has absolutely no impact. In 4 stitches it bunches up about a yard of thread with the bobbin under the plates.

Ebay will let you get your money back. Go to the customer support part on ebay, resolution center and open a complaint. They will take care of you. I had that happen to me and ebay even paid the return shipping and I got my credit for the full amount. Do not keep something that does not work.

Testimonial: "Thanks - I was concerned because the shipping itself plus the return shipping cost more than the sewing machine itself! "

    Sometimes you can find sewing machine cabinets at the local fabric store or sewing machine stores. The usually have a big rectangular cub-out for your machine. You can buy the basic cabinet and then special order a table insert to fit your machine.

    Go back to the seller. If it was listed as new and does not work, the seller should either repair, replace, or refund. Note--you may need to get eBay involved in case the seller refuses to address the issue. EBay will refund your money and reverse the charge to the seller.

    Viking 6020 kicks the bobbin case out

    Check with - they have LOTS of resources and if you can't find it - you can call and they have lots of great ideas.

    Also - ebay has a seller who owns and LOVES sewing machines. He is located in California - so he has a wealth of population base to help you search.

    His SELLER NAME on ebay is craigthecat - just do a search and you will find him.

    EBAY also has many "for parts" machines - I sure "stick and brick" sellers also have lots of old machines they just sell out the parts.

    Glad it was just the thread - happy sewing

    Bobbins are specific to machines.........if you are trying to use a non-singer bobbin, the diametre and depth may well be several millimetres different and will result in what you describe.

    Ask for plastic singer bobbins for a top loader......if you contact Singer or an agent, they will give you a part number and will probably ship to you as well.........get a few and have all your colours ready, not all layered on just a couple !
