Question about Singer 1725

I have never used a sewing machine before!!

Can anyone tell me the basics and how do I thread this thing I have followed the numbers all the way down but I don't know what to do once I get my thread to the needle do I put the thread the the needle first? If so what do I do with it after that? Does it just hang there?

Yep. Just hangs. Leave about 3 inches of thread.

Do not have manual need to knowhow to use

If you had provided the brand and model number, we could probably help. Other than that, Google your machine and model number and see if there are any manuals available.

I was in the middle of a project. This keeps happening, the thread & bobbin won't allow me to make a single stich. I've tried to take the bobbin out, rethread it, and rethread the top. Can anyone help

Basic Tips for All
  1. Always turn the handwheel TOWARDS you (counter clockwise) as turning it in the opposite direction (away from you, clockwise) may knock the timing out requiring repair from a service center.
  2. Always be sure your presser foot is in the DOWN position before sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will cause your thread to tangle and your bobbin to jam.
  3. Change needles regularly (after 16 hours of use) as dull/weak needles can cause damage to your machine and fabric. Only use SINGER needles on your SINGER sewing machine.
  4. Always be sure you are using the correct bobbin for your machine. Class 66, Class 15 and Class 15J bobbins look very similar. However, using the incorrect bobbin class in your machine can cause damage.

I need a treading diagram of 2040

My 7th grade Home Ec. theacher said "All machines thread the same", its;
spool thread
thread guide
thread guide
take up lever
thread guide
thread guide
The number of thread guides may vary among machines, but this is the basic for all machines I've encountered. and by following this, I've been able to thread them all. Guess she was right. Hope this helps.

Show me how to use singer sewing machine57815

You can download a manual from, just type your model number into the search field to locate it then download the pdf file to your PC. This is a basic Zig zag machine so carefully follow the manual instructions to wind a bobbin, thread up and stitch, just make sure you follow the directions to wind a bobbin, and then put it in the right way and click the thread into the tension spring.

I have received an old Husqvarna Viking from my grandmother which, she assures me is in working order, but she is unable to remember how to thread the machine and there are no instructions. The only...

This is going to be pretty veige, Im sorry but I have seen a lot of these go unanswered so hopefully this is at least helpful. All sewing machines have to do the same basic things, First the thread will go through a directional hole just getting it in the right spot, then it goes through the tension discs, then the take up spring, then the take up arm, then down through to the needle. I realize this this is veige, but I sure hope it helps.

Thread is going on cutting.

you do need to provide more details.  start here - get a fresh spool of high quality all purpose thread such as Coats and Clarks or Metrosene thread, fill a fresh bobbin, install a new size 11 needle.  Follow the threading instructions even if you've threaded the machine a million times, read the instructions again.  try sewing on some basic cotton fabric.  You'll be able to determine if it's the machine.  Breaking thread can be the thread (it does get too old and fragile), the needle, the incorrect needle for the fabric, the wrong thread for the fabric, and a host of other things.  So try that and tell us more if that doesn't work.

It really sounds like you have it threaded wrongly. You should find threading instructions in that manual.

Thread a kenmore 158 13410????

Not sure if I am too late, but it's pretty basic. I have the same machine...

You have the thread on the spool with the thread on the left side (unrolling off the spool counterclockwise) and put it around the round thing on the front middle (looks like a snap sort of) and through the eye almost right in front of it (the loop) and hold the thread lightly then wrap the thread around the tensioner (the thing with the dial) to the left (counterclockwise) until the springs "pops" it into place. Then run the thread through the little hook thing (by entering from the left) then up to the eye (hole) that is in the little arms that raises and lowers (you might need to spin the wheel to get the arm in the right position) then you run the thread back through the hook thing (entering from the left) around the little half circle thing (by entering from the left) and finally in the hole in the needle...

hope it made sense, I tried to use laymen terms...

good luck!
