Take a look on eBay. Also, check out SewVacUSA. They do sell on eBay, too. Search by your machine model. I recently bought a bobbin case through them for my Singer Futura and received it within a week.

I have a singer 4562 and the bobbin case is broken and does not hold the bobbin in. Can I fix it? If so how can I fix it?

Once those break they are a pain to fix. Your easiest bet is to buy a new one. Here's a link for the type you need

Or you can get one locally, its called a "Singer Apollo bobbin case". Also don't forget to add a drop of oil at the meeting of the bobbin case and the outer hook (silver circular part that picks up the thread)

When they break, it leaves a bur sometimes and it will cause thread breakage/jamming.

Let me know if you need any more help,

Singer Model 6233 While sewing the bobbin cas...

If you broke a needle and cannot get it to pick up the thread from the bobbin you need to check your timing. Remove the needle plate and turn the machine over watching the needle, when it is at the bottom of its travel the hook on the shuttle should be right next to or a fraction from the needle. So that as the needle begins to move upward the hook should pass it if it passes to soon it will miss the loop of thread. Check to make sure your needle is installed all the way up in the bar. If your machine is out of time and you are fairly handy, you can retime it. There should be 2 set screws some where behind the shuttle. Loosen them, one loose and one only as loose as need be to turn the shuttle. The needle must have moved upward about 1/16 before the hook is in place to catch the loop. This can be time comsuming, and you will have trial and error. Good luck. P.S. always check for simple stuff before you go for the hard stuff.

Singer 4562 t bobbin case won't fit properly, what am I doing wro

Make sure the bobbin case sets sort of on top and not under the ridge of the metal ring. There is a small latch on the upper left of the bobbin case. It is metal. rotate the latch to cover the bobbin case and this should stabilize the case without making it immobile

Broken plastic black peice sits down by bobbin (singer 81 on it)

This is an Apollo bobbin case and most sewing machine dealers will have them. Costs less than $20.
When you install it you will find a finger with a slot in it(located about 10'clock) that must be turned to the left to open it before the case will go back in.

Bobbin case

If your machine is older than 18 months, it needs a free upgrade from your dealer. The plastic see through needle plate needs to be replaced by a newer version that will keep the bobbin down. Further more a bobbin case position finger needs to be installed.
