Singer 2638 - three "beeps" when the foot pedal is pressed

After sewing for a hour on the machine, I put my my foot down on the pedal and heard three beeps. The machine won't operate. The 'jam' problem does not have anything to do with the thread and bobbin. I cleaned, oiled and checked everything that I can think of and it simply won't operate. any ideas?

I have a Singer Confidence 7469Q Sewing Machine. It just stopped sewing, makes a beeping noise when i push foot pedal. Can you please help me? Thanks

Something is not in the correct position to sew...perhaps the presser foot is not down, the feed dogs, etc. Check to make sure you do not have a stitch (like zig=zag) selected that the presser foot or needle plate cannot accommodate.

The needle does not move when the foot pedal is used.

Make sure that you pushed the bobbin winder all the way to the left.

I was free motion quilting, machine stopped. Beeps three times when I push foot pedal and won't sew

Hi there,

Check your buttonhole lever, left back of the machine. Pull it down and push it right up into the machine. Should solve your problem

Sewing machine does not sew. Finished sewing something, turned it off, then turned it on a few hours later and it will not work. Light is on but nothing happens when the foot pedal is pressed. Took apart...

Call Singer at 1-800-4singer and ask for their advice, you do not want to void your warranty with not going to an authorized repair service if it comes to that. Good luck

I was sewing some thick material and now I get 3 sets of 3 beeps, now when you press the foot pedal nothing happens

You probably need to clean out the bobbin case area and then check your needle to see if it's bent. I know when I sew very thick fabric or many layers... it sometimes bends the needle. Also make sure you're putting the presser foot down when you sew. Then see what happens. Let me know if any of this works or if you've already resolved your problem.

Singer 7436 beeps - not working

Check to be sure the buttonhole lever is in the up position and the presser foot is down. Check feed dogs to be sure they are in the up position.
