Question about Singer 2273 Mechanical Sewing Machine

Open Question

I just got my first sewing machine- a Singer 2273 Esteem II. However, thread keeps bunching up under my projects. Everything I have read indicates my upper thread tension is too low, but I have tried different settings all the way up to 9. Is there any way to check/repair the upper thread tensioner?

SOURCE: Upper thread wraps around bobbin mechanism, while sewing

IT PROBABLY IS THREADED INCORRECTLY. GO SLOWLY BY THE DIAPHRAGM AND MAKE SURE IT IS THREADED CORRECTLY. ALSO MAKE SURE SPOOL PIN HOLDERS ARE IN PLACE THAT HELPS TO GUIDE THE THREAD CORRECTLY.

SOURCE: No tension on my Singer 6212C sewing machine

Take the thread completly off the machine and rethread it making sure it goes thru the tension wheel properly.
FYI Loops on the bottom-- Problem is in the threadding.. Loops on the top, problem is with the bobbin.

SOURCE: Singer Featherweight tension assembly

Putting this back together is a thirty second job if you have done it a hundred times. If you have never done it but have mechanical aptitude, it may be a challenge.

Whatever you do, don't bend the check spring out of shape!

Below is a link to the Singer site with the schematic for reassembly. When placing the check spring back in place, place it in about the 6 o'clock position with no tension so that it has a fair amount of check before pulling it up in place..

When setting the tension, at a setting of "1" the tension disks should just be slightly compressing the beehive spring. "0" is almost no tension at all. Normal sewing is 5.

Get all of the parts together and push in the cup with the numbers while screwing on the knurled nut taking care to get the pin in one of the holes.

On singer esteem ii 2273 model. My problem is the hand spinner sticks only when the needle is all the way down.It doesnt get stuck juststicky slightly. I cantfigure out where at its sticking. Any idea


In order to solve your problem, you may have to take the machine apart. The gears may have to be looked at and oiled. I would oil every joint.

Thread is bunching under fabric and I've rethreaded both the bobbin and the thread from the top multiple times.


Be sure your bobbin is inserted the correct way (this varies from machine to machine, so check the owner's manual). Bobbin tension is dependent upon this in most Singer machines.

I am looking for a free manual for a singer 2273 esteem II


Singer has the manuals for the 2273 on their support site: . The direct link to the English version of the manual for the 2273 is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1181_2273.pdf . The oiling diagram is available separately: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1235_oiling-2263.pdf . You will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the manual.

You can also buy the manual from Singer for $15. Many Singer sewing machine manuals are available here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals .

I hope this helps.

Bobbin thread bunching


I have a Singer 2950. The thread keeps getting bunched up on the reserve side of the fabric, and does not stitch. It is driving me crazy. I think I have the bobbin threaded correctly, as well as the machine. I have tried everything! Please help!
