Questions & Answers for Singer Singer Simple 23-Stitch Sewing Machine 2263

Question

Second spool pin

I purchased the Singer 2263 after owing a Kenmore for 43 years. The thread shown in the instruction manual isn't the kind I have used (horizontal), so it looks like I will have to purchase the second spool pin from the list of accessories not included with the machine. Where can I find it?

If you mean that you are using the long thin spools made by 'Gutterman', then they fit fine without buying another spool pin. If you mean that you are using a 'Coats and Clark' type spool then it also fits fine. The only difference may be the side of the spool cap that you use after you insert the spool of thread.

This machine comes with a thin cover to keep the dust off of it. I'm not sure to which singer case you are referring. I think the Singer company's website should have that information.

I can not adjust the bobbie tension. I have tried to adjust it by turning the screw on the bobbin and this does nothing. What should I do?

If you haven't done this, try taking the thread coming out of the bobbin case, hold it and give it a little shake. Your bobbin should drop, but very little. If it does that then try a practice sewing run and see if the tension is okay. If the bobbin drops a lot, almost like a yo-yo, then it's way too loose.

Usually tightening the screen shown on page 15 of the 2263 manual to the right will tighten bobbin case tension. It's unusual to need to tighten bobbin case tension unless you're using some type of specialty thread or technique.

Over tightening the bobbin tension will cause puckering. It's much better to lower the needle tension.

We hope this helps!

I have always done this myself using the manual. It isn't as necessary with these newer machines but a careful cleaning is important. I'd suggest you read the manual and make sure you have a cleaning kit - the brush is included with the machine. Carefully remove the bobbin machinery and clean inside especially after sewing on linty material.

Hi AngelPach: Katie B. from SINGER Sewing Company here. You can use this sewing machine (or any sewing machine for that matter) for quilting. You will need to raise and lower the needle manually.

turn the big knob thats on the right side, make sure you continually turn it to prevent jams.just turn the knob towards you.

There could be several reason why your machine is jamming. Try these troubleshooting tips first:
-Make sure your presser foot is in the UP position when you thread the top thread.
-Make sure your presse foot is DOWN when you begin sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the UP position will make you machine jam.
-ALWAYS turn your handwheel towards you. You machine can jam easily if you turn the handwheel away from you.
-Make sure the front load bobbin is inserted correctly. You should hear a "click" when the bobbin is installed correctly.

If these do not help with your jamming issue, please contact us by phone at: 1-800-4SINGER or via e-mail at talktous@singerco.com.

if india uses european electric jacks, then you need to buy an adapter for the elelctric plug. Other than that it will work anywhere you take it. As long as you oil and maintain it as usual.
