Question about Singer 20U73

1 Answer

Singer 20U73: I have removed the bobbin case holder (2 screws) due to a suspected problem I have tried many times to reattach it, but cannot seem to find the correct position on the spindle. It will not pick up the bottom thread. Seems simple but it is not... Thanks, Robert

  2. Now place it on the spindle of the bobbin case holder (#2)
  3. You want the notch (#3) and (#4) to match up at 3 )'Clock.
  4. Now close the bed slide.

20u73 singer timing issues

is the needle the right one for the fabric being sewed?
is the needle turned the right way in the needle holder and pushed
all the way up in the needle holder?
if the above is totally correct, the I suggest taking the machine
to some other repair person, cause if the repair technican can't
time the machine they should have told you they couldn't work on the
machine .

Needle hits the bobbin holder and doesn't grab the bobbin thread

Check you have the right size bobbin case the gap where the needle enters should be 13mm approx at the widest point. A lot of other pfaff bobbin cases seem to fit and can be easily be mistaken. I have two pfaffs and have accidentally mixed the cases and had a similar problem.
