Singer Athena Rubber Washer replacement

Hi, my Athena just dropped several dried, hardened pieces of a rubber washer onto my hand. They fell out of the opening where the work light is. Any way I can get into the machine to replace this washer myself? This may explain the noise it is making. Thanks.

This is a shaft washer designed to cushion the left right movement of the main shaft Lift the right side of the black top and slide it to the right and it will come off.

If you look closeley you will see a collar on the main shaft with 2 set screws ,this washer goes between the collar and the machine side . We use a delrin washer and cut out app 30degrees of this washer which will allow you to snap it over the shaft ,I hope this helps these were great machines

How to replace motor belt on singer 2ooo atens


I think you're referring to the Singer Athena 2000, a slant needle, touch and sew machine.

I don't have a service manual for that machine, but on all the machines that I have worked on, there are two belts near the hand wheel, and the tensioner is at the center--the part where both belts come together--and you can adjust it by loosening two Phillips screws.

However, before you attempt something like that, you will need the parts number, and I would purchase the service manual. You can get a part list free and purchase the service manual here. Singer Athena and Touch Tronic

How do i thread the bobbin on a singer athena 1200 sewing machine


The Athena 1200 and 2000 are "Touch and Sew" slant needle machines. Singer has not made them for many years, but I always loved them, because the bobbin is wound in place--you don't take it out! You can still get a full assortment of presser feet for them; just make sure they're for slant needle machines.

You would be wise to visit the Singer Sewing Machine site and download your user's manual--it's free, and it will show you how to wind the bobbin. There are a series of pictures there as well. There are several steps you need to take, such as raising the presser foot, selecting the blind hem stitch, etc. Sounds complicated, but I owned an Athena 1200, and I can tell you that after the first or second try, you'll find it quite easy.

Incidentally, did you know that it's one of those rare machines that will do a TRUE 1/2" basting stitch! I kept it for years, just for that ability!

How do I replace the drive belt on a Singer Athena 2000?


Generally, the hand wheels have a screw at the center that is covered by a white disk. You use a flat bladed screwdriver to "pop" the disk off, and the screw is underneath. If there is no screw, then it's a "force fit" and you remove it by squeezing the wheel together and "rocking" it off.

My Singer 5525 bobbin winder won't turn. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if it just doesn't work.


Either the winder rubber has worn down one side, or there is some residue on the winder rubber, or the winder has seized which is common because nobody thinks about putting oil on it, if you can't turn the winder by hand, put a few drops of oil on the spindle and then put an electric drill over the spindle, swtich the drill on slowly until if rees off.

I have a singer 503A. The bobbin winder will not


When you have the winder rubber on try and turn the winder by hand, if it does not move the chances are the winder has seized, if the winder wheel is moving but not the spindle then the grip (thread) has worn, if you cannot move the whole winder by hand and it has seized you need to get some WD40 and spray a few drops down the spindle, take an electric drill and put it over the top of the spindle and switch it on slowly and it will probably free it off, be aware of oil splashing out.

Singer Athena automatic needle threader does not work.


Check on the threader and see if the part that goes through the eye of the needle is bent. This is a very common problem. The threaders are becoming more and more difficult to replace. If the piece is bent, you can usually use a pair of tweezers to straighten it out.

Problem with winding thread onto the bobbin (small free- arm Singer 100 sewing machine). Once bobbin winder shaft is pushed to the right nothing happens-bobbin rod does not start turning so I cannot wind...


first you must make sure the winder shaft is turning by moving it to the right a little and see if you can turn it by hand.
If it is turning ok then there is a rubber ring on the other end of the winder shaft and it should come in contact with the drive which turnes it ,if it is worn it might need a new rubber.
