Singer Touch and Sew Model 648 - not sewing

I have a 'vintage' machine that I have used for 30+ years without a problem. Now the needle would go down into the bobbin miechanism without jamming and the bobbin now longer swirls. So even when you want to pick up thread from the bobbin to bring it to the top, nothing happens.
When you look at the mechanism from below the machine, there are two sets of gears that seem to continually get jammed.
I can't find a repair manual?

Any help would be appreciated.
Or a repair person in the 12901 area that services Singer machines?

Thanks,
Sharon

I believe you have a broken gear. These are difficult to repair on your own.

Have you checked the top thread is correctly placed in the spring of the bobbin case?

SOURCE: bobbin case retainer popping out on Singer Touch & Sew 625

Take the bobbin case out. Then when you go to put it in, realize there are 2 ways to get it. You have found one way. The other way is first look in the the slot with a flashlight before you insert it. There is a flat piece of metal the bracket needs to be slid under as it is inserted. This acts like a spring making it tight

Singer touch & Sew machine model 648, the bobbin mechanism wont move all together. I need help!


The bobbin push button (button next to bobbin under the throat plate) must be in the sew position. When it is in the wind ( down to left) the machine will not sew. You need to push the button to the right to release it.

How do you remove the hand wheel on a singer model #648 sewing machine


Sounds like you might have a broken gear in the transmission. Since the Touch and Sew series (aka Touch and Swear, Sew and Throw, etc.) are so touchy about adjustments, I'd probably take this one to a good sewing machine mechanic and let him/her do the heavy lifting on this.

Singer Touch and Sew Model 648 will not zigzag


There is an arm in the head that does the zig zag movement and attaches to the needle bar with a pin. If that isn't connected zig zag won't work at all.

Am considering buying a used Singer Featherweight 132q. Have been trying to find any problems that this model may have but have not been able to find anything, Please help.


I've been sewing for over 30 years,, my suggestion is,, let them sew on the machine so you can watch,, & even ask to sew yourself,,, let them show you what the machine can do.. they should be willing to demonstrate the stitches & anything else the machine can do.. ask questions like has the machine got any problems,, has it been resently been serviced,, does it have a operation manual with it,, has it been well taken care of? are there any scratches on it? are there any burrs around the needle plate,, use your fingers to rub over the needle plate to see if it's smooth or not,, even check the small area in the needle plate where the needle goes down to meet the bobbin... have they ever broke a needle sewing? that can cause the machine to go out of time..
good luck

My singer touch & sew suddenly didn't stop


There might be something jamming the petal open so it won't slow or stop when you put your foot on it.. I would try that, get some canned air and blow it out and see if it helps.

Singer touch and sew 648


Thread the machine as if you were going to sew. When you thread the needle, pull the thread off to the left and wrap it around the thumb screw on the left and just above the needle. Wrap it only 2 or 3 times and hold the end of the thread. With bobbin in place and the face plate slid open, push the thumb lever on the left under the face plate to the left. Begin to 'sew'. As you do, the bobbin will wind and the thread you are holding will detach. Once the bobbin is full to the outside line, slide the face plate the closed position. As it closes, it will release the thumb lever. Put the needle in the slightly lowered position and slide something blunt under the pressure foot pulling thread from both the bobbin and the needle; cut the thread when you've pulled it out sufficiently.
