Remove the plastic pin holding the bobbin (thread source) - careful to not lose the spring.

You may need a pair of pliers to get it loose the first time.

Press down on the edge of the bobbin so the pliers can grip the pin - lay a piece of material over the pin so the plies do not gouge the plastic - twist and pull.

Don't bother- return it- it won't do more than like 5 stitches at a time- I am returning mine.

Singer 3232 machine was sewing fine now motor runs but needle does not move up and down


Check if the machine is in the bobbin winding mode. To wind the bobbin, the bobbin spindle has to be moved to the right. (The hand wheel will not turn if the bobbin spindle is in this position.) If it is, move the spindle to the left.

If the hand wheel turns, then check for a thread jam. Remove the top thread and take out the bobbin case. Gently turn the hand wheel forward and backwards until the thread comes free of the hook in the bobbin race. Follow this by cleaning any lint from the bobbin race of the sewing machine.

The last possibility is that the belt has failed. This belt transfers the energy from the motor to the needle bar. One source of the belt is http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/motor-belt-singer-007158xxl5.aspx . You can find YouTube videos on changing the belt. There are other parts that transfer the forces form the belt to the needle bar. However, I suggest you find a good sewing machine mechanic if any of these parts fail.

The manual has good pictures of the bobbin spindle on page 11 (page 18 of the PDF). Singer has the manual on their support page: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/e06cb85928ace9753f1a7124f4a2df6168ffecf0.pdf .

I hope this helps.

My machine turns on but it doesn't actually sew. The needle just pokes holes in the fabric and I don't know how to fix it


Is the bobbin full of thread, and is the needle threaded?
These are very inexpensive machines; some will only sew with what is in them when delivered, then you buy another. :-(

My sewing machine will not pick up the bobbin thread. I have rethreaded both and still no luck. I was sewing earlier today and have no idea what went wrong. I have changed the needle


make sure the bobbin is spinning in the correct direction, and that you are turning the hand wheel in the correct direction.

How to thread needleon a singer sewing machine


The needles are held on the shaft by a clamp, and there is a screw on the right-hand side to loosen or tighten the screw. You should hand tighten as much as possible, and it wouldn't hurt to then use a screwdriver and turn it one turn.

If your bobbin assembly is in the front of the machine, the flat part of the needle MUST go in towards the back, and make sure that your needle is inserted ALL THE WAY UP. Loosen the screw enough so that you're sure it's all the way.

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.

I just purchase a Singer 301 and cant get the bobbin case out


Raise the bed extension, revealing the bobbin area. Gently pull out on the bobbin case latch and it should pop right out in your hand. Congrats on your 301, they are wonderful machines!
