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

SOURCE: Bobbin does not fill completely

Machines that stop the bobbin winder automatically when the bobbin is full have a mechanism that detects how much thread is accumulating in the bobbin while it is winding, then stops the winder when the bobbin is full. It is likely that the bobbin winding mechanism needs to be adjusted by a mechanic. 
On the other hand, if the thread winds evenly, and stops winding when the bobbin is about 3/4's full each time, you probably don't need to worry about it if all else is good (even tension, consistent stitch quality, and so on). 
If you'd like me to post some general troubleshooting tips, let me know.
Good luck

SOURCE: What year was the Singer 132Q Featherweight made?

I don't know, but it has been one of the worst models I've ever used. Lots of plastic instead of metal, and cheap, cheap, cheap!

try adjusting the top thread tension to a lower number,,like if the machine tension is on 2 then take the tension up to 3 & if that doesn't give the correct tension go to 4 & see if that tension is good for the correct stitch

Hello, nicole

I am trying to help you out here. Maybe this will help some? I am known on Fixya as the cleanup expert pro. Which means I spend my own personal time to seek out customers that maybe have not had there problem yet solved. I do this on my own time for free. Think of me as a Specialized Trouble Shooter.

I have found out that it appears that lots of customers appreciate my efforts and help. So, I thought I would take some of my own personal time
to see if I can help you. Even though this Informational site may not have your exact model or brand, But this site will help you a lot. Here is the site link about everything you want to know about Sewing Machines and possibly yours, from repair to trouble shooting it.

Please if this helped you at all, if you can find the time and in your heart to rate my help and some kind words written would be appreciated for my free help. It would make my time worth. Like I said I just try to help, If anything this is good information for future problems. If you felt that my free help was a waist of time for you, I'm sorry. I do not get paid to help people on the site, I do it cause I like to help and maybe make a smile on someones face.

Here is also my direct link to my own pages of other areas of my expertise for other problems you might have in Automotive, Appliance, and Electronics. Drop In anytime for my help.

I cannot find the sewing machine light on singer featherweight model 100


I believe I just answered this question; download the user's manual at the Singer site, and on page 28 (I believe) it shows you where it is and how to replace it. Apparently, you can use any sewing machine bulb, but not over 15 watts.

Where can I get the Manual for the Singer sewing machine Featherweight, Model 100?


You can download one for $10.00 at www.sewingmanuals.com and pay with paypal. Or you can buy a hard copy from Singer at 1-800-4singer for $15 plus shipping. The download is nice because you can save it to your computer or make a cd. Plus you can enlarge the diagrams for easy viewing.
