Raise the presser foot and turn the hand wheel to put the needle at the highest position. Next open the slide plate by sliding it towards you. Make sure the bobbin is empty (remove any remaining thread or use a new bobbin). Slide the plate forward (partially closed) so that the arrow on the plate lines up with the arrow on the machine bed. Bring the thread from the needle under the presser foot and wind it around the presser foot screw (on the left of the assembly) once. Make sure that the thread is in the spring groove. Press the One-step Button hole A button (has a bobbin symbol by it). Then begin running the machine. Watch the winding process carefully and stop when you have enough thread on the bobbin. Do not let the thread continue to wind past the outermost line on the bobbin (black). Slide the plate fully closed and raise the needle. Pull the thread to the back of the machine to a length of 4" and cut the thread in the middle of the loop you just pulled through.

Now position your fabric under the presser foot, lower the presser foot and select your stitch. Begin sewing.

The manual is available for sale or download here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals/search . Just enter the model number. The direct link is: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1272_6268-_-6268_6267-wholeas-of-6_23_05-special.pdf . Pictures for winding the bobbin are on page 16 (page 18 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

    Does anyone know what to do when the thread keeps winding underneath the bobbin and not inside of it?

SOURCE: bobbin filling on Singer 626

The Singer 626 has a self-winding bobbin. You place the empty bobbin in the bobbin thingie (sorry for being so untechnical). On the left of the bobbin you will see a "lever" with a circular top on it (I think it is red-ish) Again, sorry for being so untechnical. Press the "lever" down. Thread your machine, thread the needle, wrap the excess thread from the needle around the knob that tightens the needle and holds it in place and press your foot down on the foot pedal. The bobbin will automatically wind as you hold the foot pedal down. Do not wind the thread onto the bobbin past the outer white line.

Trying to wind the bobbin on my singer 6268 but the thread keeps winding under the bobbin. What am I doing wrong?


if the bobbin winder is driven of the end of the machine then you may have to guide the thread as it winds onto the bobbin
if you are allowing the thread to come directly from the reel and it is not in line to the bobbin then what you have is what will happen

Singer 6268 bobbin winding


I've never seen this type of winding system. But from the manual on page 10, it shows that in order to disengage the machine from sewing mode.. you need to have the bobbin cover slide plate slightly open.

http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1272_6268-_-6268_6267-wholeas-of-6_23_05-special.pdf

Also make sure that your bobbin doesn't have any burrs. If it does, toss it and use a new one.

I have a Singer 6268. When I try to load the bobbin, the thread winds underneath the bobbin instead. What can I do to fix this?


change the needle
rethread the machine top & bobbin
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads
make sure there is no burrs on the bobbin case or that the bobbin
case is not damaged
if none of these suggestions help, then it might be a good idea
to take the machine in to be check at a sewing machine shop

Singer 6268, needle timing advice


I have a Singer Sewing machine, Model #6268. The threads have knotted up on the underside of the material. When I finally was able to pull it all out, it caused the needle to hit on the bobbin plate (hope that is right). Now the needle is bending, not going through. How can I adjust it back as it supposed to be? I have had this happen before, but it cost way too much to get it repaired. And I still don't know why this happens (the threads getting tangled).
Thanks!
