"I have a Singer Touch Tronic 2010. Though not a 2001, this machine was purchased for me by DH for Christmas in 1983. It is now 28 years old and sews like it did when new. I have had this machine serviced three times in all those years and not because anything needed repair, just to have it properly cleaned/oiled. It probably has several million miles on it. Back then I made a new outfit for work every week. I knew it should have been serviced more than that as I used it constantly. At one time, it was my only machine for eight years and since I sewed constantly, I couldn't bear to be without it for any length of time. Now that I am older and wiser (LOL) and have five sewing/embroidery machines including this one, I'm more attentive to the machines getting serviced on a regular basis. This machine aside from having sentimental value since DH purchased it, is still my favorite for regular sewing. It makes a great single chain stitch by placing an attachment in the bobbin that my newer and much more expensive machines don't/can't do. It is now at our week-end home and I smile every time I sew on it.

I agree with the advice to go ahead and use it and see how it performs, but not to put too much money into any repairs if it should need them.

The zigzag (stitch width) doesn't adjust properly


What is the make/model of the machine? Depending on that, it could be worth fixing. I've actually picked up some nice machines from the thrift store, ie Pfaff 260 for $25. People who give them up usually don't know what they had or how to use them. Most just need a good cleaning and oiling and perhaps some adjustments.

Hi. I purchased a Singer Touch tronic 2010 at a thrift store 2 weeks ago. It sewed beautifully until today. While putting my fabric under the pressed foot, a number if stitch selector lights on the front...


Sorry you are having a problem All machines work fine until they break. These early computer machines often had hand soldered components that are outdated. Sadly those are not supported by the manufacturer any more and most sewing technicians would advise you replace it with the problems you described.

VIK ROSE 45010050 Stitch size button will go up but not down in size...


Possibly the touch pad is bad. Are they any other buttons that don't work? Usually when the touch pad is bad other buttons won't work either. If only the stitch length won't work then the step motor for the feed is bad or you have a bad board.

Touch Tronic 2001 singer Brand


Hi, I have this same machine (I have 2 actually) and I LOVE this machine. There is a reset button underneath the machine - press that and chances are everything will work like normal again. And yes, these machines are repairable. I needed new gears on mine in January - it cost around $120 but it was well worth it. This machine will run forever. I looked at buying a new one and they are cheap plastic and in my opinion not worth it. Good luck!

Singer Touch Tronic 2001 Sewing Machine Stuck on Sewing Straight Stitch Only


I had a similar problem a couple of years ago. I finally figured out that I had the straight stitch needle plate (the one with the single hole), rather than the zig zag needle plate (the one with the curved hole). When I changed plates, it worked fine.
