Problem w/ metal plate over bobbin

I have a Singer Sewing Machine. Model is CG-500/550.. The metal plate covering the bobbin, keeps popping up when I sew anything....I took the two little screws holding that little surrounding the bobbin holder off the other day, and lost one screw...but I did put two screws back into it. Now the plate won't stay down. I've broken two needles already trying to sew. I don't know what else to do. I worked fine before I looked into that little hole, now it has a problem...what can I do?

Try and find the screw dude... either that or try taping it down i know it's not an ideal solution but it's a quick fix until you can replace the screw

    There are no screws. Thats why I think it simply should slide into the groove.

I have a singer CG 590C. It didn't come with manual. I'm just learning to sew. My bobbin was hung up with thread when I pulled on it I pull the whole bobbin casing out. How do I get it back in? Help


First thing, you should probably get a manual for your machine.
Singer CG 590 Commercial Grade Manual

How to thread Singer CG 590

This machine is listed as a commercial grade professional sewing machine, so you are going to have some additional learning curve if you are just beginning to sew.

Model CG-550. Needle hits a bottom plate. All thread and bobbin removed. Took the feed cover off. Do not see the problem.


Possible bent or wrong needle. If ok, check the zig-zag mechanism to see if it has come uncoupled from the needle mechanism. Good luck!

New Problem...I have a Singer CG-550. When I try and sew anything, the needle hits something inside where the bobbin is. The little black casing holing the bobbin keeps moving all over the place, I slip...


On the right of the black bobbin case there are two screws, you can slacken those screws off and move the bobbin case nearer to the guard leaving enough room for the thread to pass through, if the needle is hitting the bottom you may need to retime the machine.

METAL PLATE COVERING BOBBIN WON'T STAY DOWN


Take it apart again and compare the original screw with the one you substituted. If they are not the same size, you will need to get one that matches the original.

Re-place the needle plate and when firmly in place, put the screws back in.

SINGER CG 550


If the plate is moving up and down eithetr the teth are set far too high pushing the plate up or the teeth are set too far forward, I would go for the first, if the teeth are coming up well above the slot they are too high, they should be set so that when you look alongside the plate you can just see the top of the teeth, you can adjust the teeth by adjusting the screws underneath the machine where the teeth are.

The bobbin case on my Singer Inspiration 4210 sewing machine keeps popping up in the back causing my thread to bunch up underneath. I cleaned the bobbin case, but now it won't sew at all; the case keeps...


unscrew the black plate that holds in the bobbin case and move it over to the left just a little bit, but make sure there is still clearance between the lower right corner of the case and the plate. The case should be able to wiggle a little, but not so loose it can pop out..
