Singer 2010

If model 2010, the problem is a part metal- part plastic part attached to the bottom of the bobbin winding lever, the white tear-shaped thing with the arrow on it. If that will turn past the center of the bobbin it's broken inside. to try a do-it-yourself fix, turn upside down, remove 4 screws, including one by the plug (which must be pulled out for safety anyway) remove bottom case. looking at left end of the works, move the bobbin lever and you'll see the broken part move. The plastic part should be broken about half-way down. You can see how the part should push the white plastic bobbin winding shaft up and down when lever moved. the part can be removed by loosening the 2 tiny hexnuts holding it on the metal shaft. you'll need the smallest size allen (hex) wrench there is. NOTE where the part is at bottom of the metal shaft for when you put have to put it back on. be careful to hold the bobbin winding shaft itself in place, but it's easy to see how it goes back in if it pops out. if the break is clean (like my wife's that I just fixed this way yesterday!) you can put a drop or 2 of good crazy glue in the break, making sure lined up on the sides, then clamp in a vise (or hold firmly together with pliers) for at least 10 mins, longer better. wait at least an hour before putting back. putting back on is a little tricky but you move the bobbin lever to left (open) position, make sure it's just on the end of the shaft (shaft barely protruding) and see where the part isn't pushing the bobbin winding shaft. re-tighten with hex wrench then see if the repaired part now pushes the bobbin winding shaft up and down when you move the lever back and forth. Turn back over and move the lever without a bobbin spool- you should see shaft move up in the middle of bobbin case where it will engage the bottom of the bobbin spool where the x is.
Now if part can't be fixed it is available from auth Singer service center in you state but runs $40 or so. they'll try to tell you they have to install it because of special anti-static gloves that wont fry your motherboard on the machine's computer, but the center in Michigan finally said they would mail it to me. hope this helps! funny I just saw this after fixing our machine which hadn't been used for a long time until I decided I might as well look inside if I was going to have to buy her a new machine!!!

I have an old Singer Memo-Matic 360/260 Knitting

yes a sping must have come off tip it upside down and move the tuck slip etc lever and see that they move, you will see the course that the needles should take, take a close look and see which part of the cams move underneathe try both sides and you will find that one wont match up maybe a pring has popped off or broke good luck. oh also check the side guiders that feed the needles into the carriage, maybe one has been knocked or dented..

What kind of thread do I use in a Model 03914

You can use any type of thread but, you must have the correct size needle for the thread . Be sure to use quality accessories too. this will help keep dust and fibers forming ,keep this machine cleaned,maintained.

Lean the machine at an angle so it will not fall out...Hook will only fit one way, then ring with "bull horns" that go to the top rear, then lugs hold it on then insert bobbin case.

Singer Athena automatic needle threader does not work.

Check on the threader and see if the part that goes through the eye of the needle is bent. This is a very common problem. The threaders are becoming more and more difficult to replace. If the piece is bent, you can usually use a pair of tweezers to straighten it out.

I have a singer machine model no 4830C, can u

If you can't get the hank of using that buttonhole foot and attachment, go to your stitch length dail turn dail to red #1 this will make the right side of your buttonhole(the length) If you move the dail following number sequin 2-4 this will give you beautiful buttonhole without using that attachment. Remember that you don't move your fabric let the machine do its job, just check to make sure that it is lined up . Practice very easy. I use this machine for anything I sew. Love it.
