Question about Singer Sewing Machines
Singer Featherweight 132q. Any potential problems?
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..

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.

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
