It may have gotten out of correct timing, however you need to understand how it works. Problems in the way the needle is inserted can cause this... make sure the tiny groove is toward the operator.
The needle goes down and then comes up a bit and a loop forms on the backside and the point of the shuttle catches it and drags the needle thread over the top of the bobbin. Take the cover off the bobbin area, usually a couple screws, and MANUALLY cycle th machine and watch the action. Tension problems can cause this or using wrong size needle for the thread. Also search YouTube for videos pertaining to "sewing machine timing".

New Singer 1507- handwheel is stuck.


The bobbin might have a bunch of thread off it inside the compartment here the bobbin is. Also, make sure it's thread correctly, that can goof things up to.

The under thread won't come up.


You have to hold your top thead and turn your handwheel towards you. Make sure that your bobbin thread has a tail of 3-4 inches so that the top thread can hook the bobbin thread, also make sure that your needle is inserted with the flat side facing the rear of the machine and that your bobbin is placed with the thread unwinding the right way. Good luck, anymore problems call singer at1-800-4singer

New singer 7469 won't sew . it will not pick up the bobbin thread I have changed thread, needle, bobbin I have re threaded it


Check the needle to be sure it was properly installed - usually with the flat side of the shaft facing the back of the machine.

Hold onto the thread tail at the needle and lower and raise the needle with the handwheel (not the power pedal) to lift the bobbin thread.

Take both thread tails under the presser foot and to the back of the sewing machine before starting to sew.

Singer Sewing Machine model 9224. Bobbin thread


If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.

Let me know.

Bobbin


IMPORTANT: Always use a metal bobbin, or the magnetized bobbin case will not be able to function properly, resulting in a lack of tension on the bobbin thread.
9a8cb19.jpg Step 1:
Turn the handwheel counter-clockwise until the needle is in its highest position. Raise the presser foot lifter. Pull the slide plate forward and remove the empty bobbin.
Step 2:
Place the filled bobbin into the bobbin case, and pull about 4" of thread from the new bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin turns clockwise when the thread is pulled, or you will not have correct tension when you begin to sew.
Step 3:
Hold the needle thread loosely with your left hand. Turn the handwheel toward you, first lowering the needle, and continuing to turn the handwheel until the needle comes to its highest position.
Step 4:
Lightly pull up the needle thread and pick up the bobbin thread which will appear through the needle plate slot. Then pull both threads to the back of the machine leaving a 4" thread tail. Push slide plate back in.

Hope this helps. -samson39

Singer 3820 Bobbin Issues? I can't sew!


Unthread the machine completely, remove the bobbin.

Make sure that the bobbin case is securely in its place.

Turn the handwheel and ensure that the bobbin case is not jamming.

Turn the handwheel until the take-up lever is in the highest position.

Raise the presser foot and rethread the machine.

Chaeck the upper tension setting and set it around 5.

ALways make sure that you start sewing, stop sewing and thread the machine with the TAKE-UP LEVER IN THE HIGHEST POSITION.

Good luck!

Singer 3116 Bobbin


Slowly turn the handwheel towards you, as you hold the top thread and watch it hook the bobbin thread. Also, make sure that your needle is fresh and inserted right (flat side facing away from you). Watch your dvd and read your manual. Never turn the handwheel away from you as you will mess up the timing sooner or later. You can call Singer at 1-800-4singer if you have more trouble.

Bobbin case and threading singer 6423


This machine has a black plastic bobbin case. You drop the bobbin down into the case with the thread coming off in a clockwise direction. If you look close you will see a slot in the bobbin case where there is the metal pieces. The thread will slide into that and as you pull on it it will work its way through and come out on the other end of the metal. Lay the thread over top of the bobbin case and turn the handwheel to pick up the thread. (make sure you close the slide plate)

Bobbin case turns in its place


You need to remove the needle plate and take out the bobbin case. Examine it for any rough spots, scratches or burrs. When you find them, you will need to remove them with an emery stick and then buff it with very fine steel wool. Reinstall the bobbin case and the needle plate. Put the bobbin in the machine so that it turns counter clockwise when you pull the thread. Rethread the top of the machine and change the needle. Hold the needle thread , turn the handwheel and see if the bobbin thread is picked up without snagging anyplace. If it's okay, sew away.
