Will not zigzag or decorative stitches. New to these newer plastic style machines Always used older steel machines. This was given to me my by my sister who used it very little. Could cam be broken?


Hmm, I'm wondering if it has been cleaned and oiled recently. Older mechanicals require frequent TLC. Consult your owner's manual for cleaning and maintenance instructions:

Is your sewing machine mechanical (ie, not computerized)??? CAUTION--if your machine is computerized, do NOT proceed with the following suggestions.

If it is mechanical, have you cleaned and oiled your machine recently? Most mechanical sewing machine failures are because they have not been adequately and routinely oiled, the old oil has solidified and frozen the mechanics. I recommend Bernina oil or liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube (or similar good quality sewing machine oil) for mechanical machines--do NOT use 3-in-1, cooking oil, WD-40, or the sewing machine oil from your grandmother's sewing basket. (I am not associated with any Bernina dealer.)

If it is in fact frozen, pick up a bottle of liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Oil at the hardware store. Oil one or two drops in every oil hole (see your manual) and also every place where metal rubs on metal. But DO NOT oil any plastic gears, rubber, or belts. If it is still stiff or frozen, direct a hot handheld hair dryer into the top and bottom mechanism of your machine. See if that loosens it up. You may have to repeat.

Once your machine is working again, place a drop or two of good sewing machine oil as directed above. Be sure to use a small brush to clean the lint and dirt out of your machine, especially around the feed dogs and bobbin area. (Caution: Compressed air will sometimes force the dirt and lint into areas that cannot be cleaned.) And continue to use good quality sewing machine oil to keep it running. Recommendation: every time you change a bobbin, after 8 hours of sewing, or every six months if it is not in regular use.

Can i use a clear synthetic motor oil to lubricate my Singer industrial sewing machine?


Because I expect you are using it for home use I will tell you this. Users of this machine may have a mess from the oil pan. Take the oil pan off. A man I worked on began to use synthetic grease on a regular time frame such as 100000 stitches. This prevents the mess from the oil pan. It appears as a powder but will adhere to the gears. I wouldn't use synthetic motor oil because it doesn't stick too well. Anyway, this is only a suggestion. The nice thing about this is it comes in a spray can at Walmart

Singer no longer allows us to oil and grease. You won't find a diagram. Sorry. You'll need to take it in for Lube and adjust.

My machine bunches thread at bottom of material and is runnung sllooow. I am not sure where to oil it. But do have sewing machine oil. It's like brand new, but got it like 8 years ago. Please help...


You can go to www.singerco.com and buy a manual for $15. right from Singer. You really need your manual to learn where to oil your machine and other tips. Singer's site does have some things about threading your machine, because your problem is in your top threading. You can also call Singer at 1-800-4singer. Good luck

Is it safe to use WD40 oil to lubricate my singer 648?


Hi. No, don't use WD40 oil to lubricate your Singer. Use sewing machine oil--it's a whole different breed of animal than WD40 and won't hurt your machine. You can easily find sewing machine oil at Jo-ann's, Hancock's, or any other local fabric and/or craft store. It's not expensive, but repairing the insides of a machine gummed up from WD40 IS!

Good luck and let me know how this works.
