Question about Singer Quantum XL-1000 Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Quantum XL-1000 I just got this problem. It was sewing fine before and now all of a sudden, the fabric won't move. The needle moves freely, the feet are moving just fine, everything is threaded right, there's no junk in under the needle beneath the plate. The machine will no longer move forward or backward. HELP! Thanks! Amy

Ok it sounds like either the gear on the rotoary hook is bad "lot of money to fix" or there is a small pin that moves the feed dogs make sure it is setted correctly. also make sure the pressure foot is down all the way.

I can get to the adjustment mode on my singer quantum XL 1000, but how do I use it? The numbers 8 and 9 show below the numerical touch pad.


I sounds to me like instead of an adjustment, your machine has been set to end with the needle down instead of up. You need to get the user's manual for it; I'm almost sure that you can program the needle behavior at the end of a seam or color block. Just go to the Singer site--it'a free download, if you don't have one.

Singer quantum XL-150 how do i thread this machine?


All Singer models would have arrows/numbers to guide your top threading from the spool pin to top thread guide, for most machine start from your thread spool pin, to a thread guide follow arrow down then up into the take up lever and down to the needle thread guide then into the needle hole. Assuming you have wind and install the bobbin thread into the bobbin case, turn your hand wheel towards you makes the needle bar goes down,keep on turning till the needle bar is fully up again, pull the end of the top thread to pick out the bobbin/bottom thread. With your material/fabric under the presser feet, apply the presser feet lever down, you are ready to sew.

My Singer Quantum XL 1000 is jammed and does not move. The light is on. Please help


Hello,

Try to turn the hand wheel (on the right side of the machine) backwards ( if you are facing the right side of your machine, turn it clockwise) and try to remove the thread. Once its freed up, change the needle.

Hope that helps,
Chris

Singer 301A needle breaks


do you have a book, refer to threading. This machine threads differently than most, threads like a 221 featherweight. Needle goes in backwards, and threads backwards. in wrong and you can have problems, also threading can cause your problem if you have missed tension or a thread guide. great little machine

Singer 301A stitch jam


your machine threads from right to left. the needle flat spot faces left. big loopy things means that the upper part of the machine is not threaded properly. as far as the needle hitting the bobbin case, it sounds as if someone removed the hook (part that holds the case) and put it back on 180 degrees off.

Wheel won't turn


Hello,

The same thing happend to me with an older model (Singer XL 10). I have been sewing a decorating stitch and the machine stopped suddenly. Now I am not able to turn the hand wheel anymore like I should (I can move it a little bit, but the needle does not move up and down and the wheel is getting stuck). When I try to use the pedal the motor makes a horrible noise and stops. The needle is not moving up and down.

Is there a solution for that problem? I moved from Europe to Australia and have not used my machine since. Today is the first day, I was cleaning and oiling it and it first sewed perfectly. In case that there would be thread stuck somewhere, how could I possibly clean that? I already took off the plastic from the head, but I can not see where the problem is.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

Best regards,
Nelly
