Question about Singer 2732 Mechanical Sewing Machine

2 Answers

SINGER 2732 Who knows what is wrong!!!

I have had this machine for probably 5 years and used it off and on. It has never been "easy" to sew and I thought it was just me until I went to my high school's apparel class (I'm a high school teacher) and sewed using their machines. I literally had no problems! The main problem is the bobbin thread - it is so tight, when you go to pull fabric out you have to tug with all of your strength. It also doesn't make a pretty stitch underneath. I don't want to have to buy another machine!

Take to service tech, they can set it to work, and when you replace it don't buy from somewhere you can't get a real person to show you operation, all machines work a bit differently, a little training goes a long way toward hassle free sewing

I have a Singer 2732. I did not use for a couple years and I do not have the manual. The thread will NOT stay on the Arm. It will sew for a bit and then it falls off. I am wondering if I am threading it..., this will tell you how to thread. I am thinking that you do not have the cap that you put over the thread spool to stop it from falling off. Until you can get one, how about taking the top of an empty pill bottle and making a hole in the center and sliding it on the spool pin. Then call Singer at 1-800-4singer and order the real thing, you can also ask them questions on operating the machine. It looks like they do not have a manual for your model for free, it is $15.

When I start to sew the thread keeps coming out of the take up lever on my Singer 2732

you might try taking a pair of pliers & gently closing the gap in the thread take up lever, I had the same problem in my mechanical sewing machine & that's what it took to fix it, the thread doesn't slip off any more when I'm sewing.

You can go here, search 2732, and purchase an instruction manual for your machine, if you have misplaced the one that came with it. It looks like they're like $15.

Also, Singer has just installed new Q&A features on their website. You can go here: and look for your particular model. At the bottom of the product page, you can post Questions for singer experts and other community members to answer!

Good luck!
