I just bought this machine brand new. It was just delivered a few days ago. When I sew and press the reverse lever it continues to sew forward. Can't find a solution in the manual. Any advice ?

Your reverse lever may have become disconnected inside the machine. Return it to the dealer if you don't want to fix it yourself.

SOURCE: Singer sewing machine beeps and wont repond to commands.

Sounds like you may have a blockage somewhere in the bobbin area that needs cleaning as this is normally what happens when it gets jammed. Reverse sewing can sometimes cause jams. Remove bobbin area and reassemble.

SOURCE: Reverse Lever isn't working...

Most likely the "dogs" inside the lever are broken off. Oil/grease on the metal rod cause chemical attack to the plastic lever and the "dogs" break. Singer should know to degrease this rod before assembly.

SOURCE: Antique Singer Sewing Machine AE993349. Looks

You have a model 221 which was made on May 24, 1938 at the Elizabethport factory in Elizabethport, New Jersey. There were 20,000 of those made during that particular run which may have been over a few days.

Its value depends on its overall condition and what someone is willing to pay for it. Sight unseen, I would estimate market value for that machine in good running order at between $250 and $400.

SOURCE: My sewing machine is brand new- Singer confidence.

I am having exactly the same problem. I called the Singer helpline and was on hold for 28 minutes before I gave up. I emailed them instead. Did you ever figure out what was going on?

SOURCE: Brand new machine. Heavy Duty

Remove plate and place one drop of Zoom Sewing Machine Oil at the bottom left-hand side of race shuttle (you have to remove the plastic section - just unsrcrew with the flat silver thingy in your 4423 accessories. Don't get oil on plastic parts. Remove screws underneath of machine. Tip machine on it's side against a towel. Run machine slowly. Any moving part gets just one drop of oil and gears that look dry get Singer lubricant (Comes in a tube). Make sure you tighten screws, but don't tighten with too much force so you don't "strip" plastic. When sewing heavy fabrics, use Singer Style needles #2032/ 90/14 and 100/16. On TV they demonstrate heavy fabrics and knits with this "heavy duty" machine, I know, but you can bet, you need specific needles for specific jobs no matter if you have a home machine or even a metal industrial. Much success!

Hi ive just retimed my machine but now the bobbin thread isnt been picked up x i have a singer HD 4423 xx


That is generally a timing issue. The needle is arriving at the bobbin at the wrong time to intercept the bobbin thread. Be sure you are using a brand new needle.

Model 4423 singer stuck in reverse


Solution: Turn off machine. Turn stitch dial until you hear click on each stitch shown on dial. Set to straight stitch then and set stitch width to 6. try machine again being careful to put light force on the foot pedal so your not going full throttle. This is how I "de-confused" my Singer Heavy Duty 4423 when it got stuck on reverse. Hope this helps!
