Question about Sewing Machines

Open Question

My singer touch-tronic 2001 will not sew in reverse and only sews in long stitches. It worked fine last night. Help!

When it turns on it has a slight hum, which stops. Any stitch I choose sews as if the length chosen is the longest possible (9 on the scale). When choosing reverse it continues to sew forward.

SOURCE: 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.

"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.

I was recently given my mother-in- law's Singer touch-tronic 2000 sewing machine. The needle bar does not work. What could the problem be. Please help me. Thank you


check with a singer service centre but some singers have a belt drive inside the case that works the needle bar mechanism
they are known to break
it is in side at the right hand end just behind the outside pulley

Singer touch tronic 2010 only sews in reverse


Here is a link to the owner's manual.
http://www.manualslib.com/manual/154331/Singer-Touch-Tronic-2010.html

Was this running ok, the poof?
There might be a reverse option on one of the selections switches.
If it has sat for a while, it might need servicing; gummed up inside.

Singer Touch-tronic 2000 makes loud humming/buzzing noise, stitch selector lights quit working, needle bar stopped moving.


Sounds like you've got a thread jam going on in the bobbin case area. Good cleaning and a new needle will probably fix it. See: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091202121550AAHxN8y

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.

Bobbin stitch is loopy


4 is the "middle of the road" tension number, but it depends on the thickness of your fabric.
