The stitch length dial needs to be set to a lower number (number of stitches per inch) to give you longer stitches. The tensions do not regulate the stitch length, the feed dogs regulate the distance the material is advanced between stitches. Also, make sure the pressure foot is applying enough pressure to keep the material in firm enough contact with the feed dogs.

It really depends on the type of material you are sewing. But most machines are set at around 4 from the factory. remember right to tighten, left to loosen.

White vintage 1927 sewing machine manual


The model number is somewhere, possibly on a plate on the back of the machine or possibly underneath. On older Singers, the model number is represented by the serial number, ie serial # through serial # is a Model 66.

You can try searching the internet for:

White Model# manual

However, with the age, it may be difficult to find anything.

My sewing machine don't want to work the elastic tread that you use for smocking. I put it on the bobbin. Also, were can I download a free service/ repair manual?


To seek a manual, search the internet for:
Manufacturer + Model + the word "Manual"

Be sure you hand-wind the bobbin with the elastic thread. You may also need to loosen the bobbin tension a bit if the elastic thread is stretching too much while stitching.

This Machine was a gift,


Hi Ellen: The AK861598 number you gave IS NOT your model number but instead it is your serial number.

You will need to determine the model of your machine visually. Here is a good guide to do that.

http://www.sandman-collectibles.com/id-singer-machines.htm

Then when identified... go here and get a manual.
http://www.parts.singerco.com/IPinstManuals/

Most of those older manuals have adjustment instructions.
If you need a parts list you can try this link.

Have fun and good luck getting your old girl going.

Machine given as a gift no instructions can i down load instructions and print of


We need to know the model number. Is it a Memory Craft 3000 or 9000? Another model number? Also, be prepared that as a Janome you will probably have to pay for the manual IF it is even found. They are tough to find.

Get back to me with a comment back on the model number and I can do a specified web-wide search. I've also got a number of specific sites I use to look for free sewing manual downloads, but Janome's are tough ones to find. I promise to leave no stone unturned, though! That's a nice gift to get!
