You can download an instruction manual for Singer machines from here http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html, just type in the model number and click "search".

This sounds more like top thread is not in tension though so have you checked tension is working okay?

However, to adjust timing you will need a service manual or general instructions for a horizontal hook sewing machine. You may find a video that helps with this on You-tube, I just leave it to the experts.

The bobbin thread will not raise with the needle


1. REPLACE NEEDLE W/FLAT PART AWAY FROM YOU.
2. MAKE SURE THE TOP THREAD IS PROPERLY THREADED.
3. INSURE BOTTOM BOBBIN IS ROTATING RIGHT DIRECTION. (USUALLY COUNTERCLOCKWISE) ALLOW THREE INCHES OF THREAD PULLED AWAY.
4. HOLD TOP THREAD W/LEFT HAND AND ROTATE HAND WHEEL TOWARDS YOURSELF. DOES IT BRING THE BOBBIN THREAD UP?
5. IF THE BOBBIN CARRIER IS INSTALLED PROPERLY THE HOOK (POINTED OBJECT) UNDER THE BOBBIN SHOULD "HOOK" THE TOP THREAD AND BRING THE THREAD AROUND THE BOBBIN THREAD. THE NEEDLE AND TOP THREAD SHOULD BE PULLING THE BOBBIN THREAD UPWARDS. IF THE HOOK DIDN'T "HOOK" THE NEEDLE THREAD THE PROBLEM IS THE DISTANCE OF THE NEEDLE AND HOOK APART OR THE TIMING. YOU MAY TRY TO MOVE THE NEEDLE TO THE LEFT SIDE AND AGAIN TRY ROTATING THE HAND WHEEL. IF IT DOESN'T WORK THEN TRY TO MOVE THE NEEDLE ALL THE WAY TO THE RIGHT AND ROTATE THE HAND WHEEL. IF IT BRINGS THE BOBBIN THREAD UPWARDS IN EITHER CASE IT WILL SHOW A PROBLEM WITH TIMING. THIS WILL NEED TO BE ADJUSTED BY A PROFESSIONAL.
6. REMEMBER TO PUT ONE DROP OF OIL ON THE RACE TRACK BEFORE YOU PUT THE BOBBIN CARRIER IN.

MY THREAD GETTING WRAPPED AROUND THE BOBBING WHEN TRYING TO SEW THE TOP THREAD WRAPPING AROUND THE BOBBING CASE AND DRAGGING CAUSING THE TOP THREAD TO BREAK ?


It sounds like the lower shuttle is out of place. You should be able to take out the bobbin case and unlatch the shuttle. It will probably be in 2 pieces. Clean out the dust behind it and replace the shuttle pieces. You may have to fiddle with it a little to get them back in place. Then you can test it by manually turning the wheel. Make sure the bobbin is placed into the bobbin case and that the bobbin turns in the direction that you pull the thread.

Good luck.

Not to familiar with the industrial machines. However, even with domestic models. the position of the 'needle' bar at the time you remove your fabric, does make a difference as to weather it pulls our smoothly or, you are going to get that "extra" loop. Needle should be half way up or all the way. maybe this might help

White sewing machine 2037 I have been having trouble for some time with the bobbin thread becoming snarled. Finally took it apart and cleaned it, which helped. When I sat down to sew a blanket tonight,...


Hello. What you have described presents a large number of possibilities. What I can tell you is this; A sewing machine that uses a bobbin is known as a lock stitch sewing machine. On a basic lock stitch machine, two threads are used to make the stitch - the needle thread and the bobbin thread. In order for the stitch to be made, the bobbin and it's thread are passed through a loop in the needle thread, or more accurately, the needle thread must pass a loop around the bobbin and it's thread, after which the loop is pulled back in and up, taking the bobbin thread with it right up to the underside of the fabric and securely holding it there and the process is repeated, many times over in the blink of an eye. The bobbin, weather placed in a case first or or set directly into, has a place in the center of a rotating hook, which can be oriented in either a vertical or horizontal position. It is the sharp, pointy hook that grabs the needle thread above the eye of the needle and loops the needle thread around the bobbin and it's thread. In less than one full rotation of the hook the needle thread is picked up, looped around the bobbin, and pulled back off of the hook, taking with it the bobbin thread and pulling it up tight to the bottom of the fabric. The process is then repeated, many times over in the blink of an eye. For a sewing machine to function correctly, every aspect of the process must be right, and if any part of the process is not spot-on, failure occurs. Process failure ranges in severity from one stitch out of a thousand skipped to catastrophic breakage of the machine and it's parts. I'm sorry I don't know of a White repair shop in your area. I am new to FixYa, so I'm not sure if it is appropriate to offer my services, but I think it is okay to give you my number if you want to call me. It is 574-808-9613.

The bobbin casing stopped working. On closer inspection we discovered the time piece hal become unscrewed, but how to you get it back in time?


This is how I do it. Rotate the machine by hand until the needle is at the lowest point that it travels. Now tighten the bobbin casing set screws with the thread hook slightly ahead of the needle. As the needle begins to rise the hook should pass by it and grab the needle thread and loop it around the bobbin. Be patient. You may have to adjust it several time before you get the timing back to perfect.

Good Luck!!

try cleaning all that you can out of the bobbin case then try very carefully to bump it backward (opposite) with the hand wheel . Be careful not to knot out of timing. sounds like you have thread in between bobbin case and hook

Top thread won't pull up the bottom thread


make sure needle is in with flat facing back and pushed all the way up in needle holder. thread needle from front to back, and ensure a bobbin with thread is correctly inserted in machine with approx 2-3 inches of thread hanging off it.

wind machine over (top of handwheel toward you) gently holding the needle thread (do not hold taught or hook may not catch loop underneath needle plate) and the bottom thread should come wrapped around the needle thread after you have turned 1 revolution and stopped with takeup lever at top.

if you have done all of this and the bobbin thread will not come up, try sewing on scrap fabric and see if the stitches are correctly formed. if so all is good, if not, it sounds like your hook timing is out and will require a tech to repar.

goodluck,

scott.

Try oiling the hook if you haven't recently.
Check you needle plate and hook for damage, they may need to be buffed or sanded smooth.
Check your upper tension discs for lint and double check your upper thread path (proper threading).
There are other things like hook timing, needle clearance or broken check spring that may be wrong but you need a technician for those things.
best of luck!

Beeps several times and stops sewing.


I had the same problem. Through trial and error, I found the problem was with the thread tension. Usually the thread became wrapped around the spool holder as it was coming off the spool. As you continue to press the pedal, tension is created. When you release the pedal, some slack develops in the threading process and you are able to sew a few more stitches before the beeping starts again. If the thread is caught on the spool holder, simple re-thread the machine.That generally works for me. Also you can try to push to spool holder in as close as possible to the spool pin to alleviate any gaps. If the beeping continues to happen, place you thread in a cup behind the machine and thread as usual. You can also purchase an inexpensive thread holder. I made one out of a wood block and other odds and ends found around the house. Good Luck!
