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!

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.

Try adjusting the tension on the bobbin holder, it has a plus & minus with a tiny screw you turn a bit.
The book/manuel tells it too.

Please be sure your top thread is threaded correctly. Your presser foot must be in the UP position while threading the top thread in order to get the correct tension.

I have used both plastic and metal bobbins on my Singer Simple machine. You would not need to transfer anything they all work the same plastic or metal.

If you continue to push the presser foot lever up, you will get an extra 1/4" of space between the foot and the plate. This should be plenty of room for heavy fabric.

No. Try lifting the foot and rotating the manual wheel counter-clock wise. If it is still jamed, hold down the reverse lever and rotate clockwise. If still jamed, open bobin area and remove excess thread.

You might need to rethread the machine. Please make sure the presser foot is in the UP position when threading the top thread, the presser foot must be in the DOWN position when you start sewing and always turn the handwheel TOWARDS you when raising or lowering the needle.
