Sounds like the machine has been knocked out of time. Take it to your sewing machine technician.

Fit the needle correctly as too far up will tilt the needle when you tighten the collar up
there is a stop but it is not very noticeable
turn the machine over by hand (no thread) and see where the needle is hitting the bobbin case. the needle /hook timing may have altered
to check that the eye of the needle should be just below the hook as it reaches the needle
to adjust you will have to take it to a service center.
the needle goes in with the grooved side facing the thread and the cut away bit facing the hook of the bobbin

SOURCE: Problem with bobbin case - new machine Singer CE 100

My problem is solved (I think...that is a knock on wood kind of thing). Upon recommendation from another Futura user, I remove and clean my bobbin case and I put a drop of oil in the little hole under my bobbin case about every 5th or 6th monogram use. AND, I pitched all of my bobbins that were 15 and not 15J (I had some that were 15 and they were the culprit as well.) I have had no more problem. It seemed the least bit of lint caused me a lot of birdnesting. I also stopped using rayon thread and use only polyester and bobbin fill in the bobbin. I have got to say I am thoroughly enjoying my machine these days. Please try these things before giving up on this so user friendly machine.

Refer to your manual to be sure you purchased the correct needle. If they are the Singer brand, then you are okay.

Refer to the manual to be sure of the installation. On some machines the flat side of the needle shaft faces to the back of the machine and on others, to the left side.

The front of a sewing machine needle has a long groove down the shaft and this is what helps feed the thread through the eye and form a proper stitch.

I have a singer 248 the needle broke and i replaced it now it seems the bobbin case is out of line as the needle is hitting it. My question is how do i reline the bobbin case??


When the needle broke, it could have caused the needle/hook timing to lose its timing. There are web sites and videos that show how to repair it yourself, or you may just want to take it in for service.

Bobbins for singer 306k sewing machine


You can find your bobbin--as well as your bobbin case and other accessories and parts--at Sewing Parts Online. Just select Singer parts on the left hand side, and enter your model number in the search box, and it will take you right there. They also sell the foot pedal, needle plate, and a lot of other parts for your machine as well.

Where can i find needles for a singer 306k machine ?


What type of material are you going to be sewing? Sew-Classic has 10 needle packages of the size 12 and size 14 needles for the Singer 306 for light (not fine) and medium weight material. (It's a 206x13 needle for the single needle. The twin needle is a 306x3.) See http://shop.sew-classic.com/206x13-Sewing-Machine-Needles_c46.htm .

http://www.allbrands.com/products/15221-schmetz-german-206x13-flat-shank-needles-100-size has some notes on alternative needles. The site has boxes of 100 size 14 and size 12 needles. (The size 14 needles are out of stock due to delays on the manufacturer's side.) https://www.college-sewing.co.uk/206X13-SIZE-90-PACK-OF-10-NEEDLES (size 14) needles in stock.

Unfortunately, I do not see any twin needles available for the 306K. I hope this helps.

Looking for bobbin case for singer 3270c I see lots that look like the one I have but none of the numbers they list match mine... Also the machine is bunching up the tread and my bobbin case is broke so...


check with these 2 websites for the part ,,

sewingpartsonline.com or sewvacdoctor.com

it's possible the bobbin case could be a problem, I have 2 sewing machine & if one of them had a broken bobbin case I would replace it

have you tried a new needle

also check the thread take up lever, if the thread comes off of it, that can jam up the machine as well, I've had that happen before

also keep under the needle plate area clean of lint or loose threads & also the bobbin area

Sounds to me that your machine is out of time. I recommend you take it to your local repair center.
