Only sews in reverse


1. Remove the top and clean out old grease. To remove the top you may have to remove small screw covers. Also, many have snaps as well. Cleaning with carburetor cleaner and a qtip works very well.
2. With the hand wheel turn both directions and see if there are any sticking parts. You may have to force them free very carefully.
3. Put new sewing machine oil on the moving parts, etc. (Not plastic parts) Triflow should be used for plastic. You can get this on the internet.
4. Once you have it oiled, unstuck, etc put back together.
5. The same thing can be done on the bottom of the machine.
WARNING: DON'T TOUCH THE CIRCUIT BOARD AND STAY AWAY FROM IT. STATIC ELECTRICITY CAN RUIN IT.

I'M NOT SURE BUT IT IS POSSIBLE THAT YOU USED YOUR STATIC TO DESTROY YOUR CARD. IT WILL NEED TO BE CHECKED BY REPLACING IT WITH ANOTHER ONE W/O KILLING IT WITH STATIC.

Do you need to ol this machine


the manual will probably make no reference to oiling this machine but will recommend cleaning out the bobbin holder with a little brush regularly and getting it serviced by a tech annually. These newer machines have an oiling wick under the bobbin and nylon gears so regular oiling is not so critical. My tech told me that I could still oil into the wick occassionally which I do between services. Certainly if it is sounding noisier than normal then a single drop of quality clear Sewing Machine oil into the middle of the bobbin holder under where the bobbin sits, won't hurt it. The brushing out to remove fibres, threads and dust is important to keep the race area clean so the lubrication can work.

I am trying to alter a swim suit, and I need to use a stretch stitch. Does the Singer model 2638 have this feature?


Here is the stitch selection page from your manual

tally_girl_49.jpg
I would suggest that you use the stitch called "elastic overlock" using a stretch needle, you need a ball point tip on the needle to press between the elastane fibres in lycra. A stretch needle is blue, coated with a substance that makes it easier to stitch these types of man made stretch fibres, often size 75. If you can't get one of those, then use a ball point needle, size 70 or 80.

You need a stitch with forwards and backwards movement so that the stitching doesn't break under stress. Your machine also has a stretch straight stitch and this would be a forwards and backwards straight stitch so this will work too but can look a bit 'heavy' sometimes. But even triple zig zag narrowed down will work often.

If you are sewing leg edges with lycra, shop made garments will have clear swimsuit elastic sewn into the seam using a coverstitch overlocker, you'll never get as good a result with a regular sewing machine but you can get a reasonable finish with practice. This elastic is available to buy, you might want to use the overlock stitch to attach it to the fabric edge, stretching as you go, then turn it to the inside and use a stretch twin needle and straight stitch to top stitch from the outside, stretching the fabric as you sew.

Trust this helps you a little, 4 thumbs up if so. :-)

Electric leakage


It won't be electric leakage because it will blow the inline fuse, it is probably static that you are building up, touch something else metal before you use the machine

Am trying to change from light weight knit fabric on machine to light weight woven.push screen and it won't change . designer viking 1


Hi,
It sounds like the screen has lost calibration. If you can get into "set" touch more until you see color touch screen adjust, then click on it. Click in the middle crosshairs next to the one, it should make a "click" and change colors, after that, do it to the crosshair next to the 2. touch "save". If you can't get the crosshairs to respond to your touchtry cleaning the entire machine and the screen with a static remover spray (NEVER SPRAY SCREEN DIRECTLY) spray your clean cotton cloth( eyeglass rag is awesome here) and wipe the machine down, then try again until successful. The company reccommends using a touch stylus in place of your finger to eliminate the transfer of static electricity to your machine
Hope this helps.

Designer 1 touch screen freezes


Static Electricity and Designer 1:
The designer 1 is susceptible to static electricity. They sell static removers for electronics. Try that 1st. Don’t spray your machine, just the rag and wipe the machine. Endust for electronics makes a pump spray and you can even use it on the screen (DONT spray the screen). Then try to recalibrate the screen in the set menu. If you can’t get into the set menu keep trying until you can otherwise, there is a way to get into the service mode to set it.
