Question about Singer 7256 Fashion Mate Sewing Machine

Open Question

I recently purchased a Singer 6160 digital sewing machine, and when I go to spin the bobbin nothing happens. I can hear the motor going, but it doesn't spin. Then when I try to sew the needle stays stationary, and the C4 error code comes up. Nothing is blocking it, because I have not even put tread into needle. As stated previously the machine won't even spin the bobbin. How can I resolve this issue.

SOURCE: No, I was trying to

I would spring for a tuneup. It is a machine and does need attention and if you like the machine, invest in it. You can download a free manual at www.singerco.com under customer support, and try oiling it and cleaning it out under the throat plate. Take a screw driver and take off the plate and use a brush to clean out the lint, that may be the problem but without seeing it, I don't know. You will be amazed at the lint that under there, looks like felt but it is not. Good luck.

SOURCE: I received singer sewing machine

Singer has manuals for most of their sewing machines available at their site. For the 2623, the manual is only available as a bound copy for $15. Go to http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals and enter the model number then click Search.

I believe on this model, you fill the bobbin with it on the metal pin on the top right of the machine. With a metal presser foot in place, bring the thread up and around the guide that pin. Wrap the thread a few times around the bobbin. Set the lever to the bobbin winding position and begin winding. Stop and trim the excess thread from your initial wraps after it is fully caught. Then complete winding the bobbin.

(On other Singer machines, you fill the bobbin in place with the bobbin cover moved halfway open.)

I hope this helps.

Hi. There are only a few models that have any significant value. If your machine is a feather weight, it could be worth anywhere from $100.00 to $1000.00. Try looking on E-bay to get an idea of what similar machines are selling for.

SOURCE: what year is my singer

The Singer vintage machine site indicates that the AH251729 was made in 1947 in Elizabeth, NJ. For details see http://www.singermachines.co.uk/faq/tell-sewing-machine-age-from-two-letter-serial-number/ .

Look on the front of your sewing machine and locate the model number of the machine. Go to http://www.singerco.com/support/replacement-parts-chart and locate your model number. (Use the drop down menu and locate the group. Press Go and then find the pdf with the correct model parts list.) You can look up the exact part number and order them from the Singer Service Center online.

Alternatively, you may be able to find them at any Singer Authorized retailer. Just look at your machine and determine the type of shank that connects foot to the machine. (High Shank and Slant are common Singer foot designs on older machines.) Get a zigzag foot for Singer machines with that design. (If they don't have that, you can probably get a current foot and an adapter. We got an overedge foot and the high slant foot adapter for my Singer sewing machine (purchased in 1969) in the 1980s.)

I hope this helps.

(Singer parts are generally available. I saw throat plates for some Featherweight machines this morning at a quilt show.)

The bobbin winder won't wind. Is there any way I can fix it myself?


Most of the sewing machines have a "tire" that rubs against the hand wheel when it spins. Sometimes it needs replaced. You will need to remove the top part of the machine unless it is an older model. You will see the tire that I'm talking about. Slip the old one off and get another one from a repair shop or purchase it at:

How do I thread the bobbin on a singer ingunitity sewing machine


If you go to the Singer site, they generally have the user's manual that you can download for free. It will tell you how to use the bobbin winder. Every sewing machine has the ability to wind a bobbin, but there are several different systems, according to the machine you purchased. Alternatively, you can purchase an inexpensive bobbin winder for under $25 at WalMart online.

Singer 6160


there are many styles of bobbins out there and you need to make sure that you have the right style for your machine. If you do then I would suggest making sure that there is no lint or dust in the bobbin area. good luck.

Singer 2662-when I press the foot control the motor revs but doesn't make the needle go up and down.


Most sewing machines have a switch to position for sewing or for spinning bobbins. Make sure it is in the sewing position and not for spinning bobbins. I have several sewing machines (not your model) and they all do that if they are set for spinning bobbins.

My Singer 6160's needle is hitting the bobbin plate.


first change the needle--flat side to the back of the machine, make sure the needle is inserted all the way up into the needle holder
make sure it's the correct needle for the machine
if the needle keeps hitting the bobbin plate then the machine may be out of time & would have to be take to a sewing machine shop for retiming.

I purchased singer 591 from a commercial manufacturing comp. About 3 years ago for my fiance to use. She doesn't need it anymore so I'll sell it. Thing is I can't turn this machine on to show potential...


A 591 is a flat bed industial machine, that came out with a clutch motor. Unless it has been changed to a servo motor. A clutch motor when turned on will will spool up to speed and you will hear it run. A servo motor makes no sound until you move the foot leaver.
If you hit the switch and nothing happens even when you move the foot feed, check your electical connections.

Bobbin not turning, possible motor/gear issue?


You have a broken vertical shaft gear. It's very easy to replace if you are mechanically inclined. The gear can be purchased for between $8-14 from a sewing repair store and I can walk you through the process.
