Default Singer 6267

I bought this Singer at the Goodwill...it looks great...all the attachments...and in good shape...except that filling the bobbin is a challenge...sometimes it fills perfectly (throught the needle) but most often it starts the filling under the bobbin...a Babylock dealer here said it wasn't worth trying to fix it....I just can't believe that it can't be made to operate...such a clean looking machine...does anyone know anything about this machine?...I'd appreciate any info...I have only $37 in it, but I hate not to be able to donate it to our sewing room here where I teach a class.

If it has a plastic bobbin you might try a NEW bobbin - some of those machines are pretty picky about the bobbin.
If it works other wise use a bobbin winder from Joann's or Walmart. My preference is the older Singers with NO PLASTIC at all. For what ever reason the plastic machines aren't near as good as the older metal machines.

Hi Hattie
I have this model and the 6268. I take mine to a sewing machine sales/repair place for tune ups at least once a year. The bobbin area in these are quite picky about lint build up and such. The bobbin style in this machine does not have the center hole like most bobbins.

http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/bob...-312956-s.aspx

See this link for the bobbin style for this machine. They also sell a generic brand but I have not had any good luck with them. They are spring loaded centers. If the spring is worn out, you need to get new bobbins. Once you see them you can see why you can not wind bobbins for these machines on a separate bobbin winder.

When winding your bobbin you need to make sure the slide is set just right on the mark correctly or else it will wind underneath and not on the bobbin itself. First I would try a new bobbin. Check if the spring is working right. If you can not get it to wind properly after attempting several different bobbins, try taking the machine to a sewing sales/repair place to have them look at it for you and maybe have them clean it if the charge is reasonable. I hope this works out for you.

They are unique to the 6267, 6268 and just a couple of other Singers. I attached a link to the bobbins in the previous response. This is the most affordable place that I have found them so far.
