Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Singer 5830c I can only sew for a very short while, then the machine slows down almost to a stop. I've cleaned out dust as much as I can, oiled anything that looks like it moves. If I don't use it for a few days, it seems fine when I start, but as I continue to sew, it slows to a completely unacceptable pace. Sounds like it might be the motor. I've had it for about 12 years, but haven't used it often.

Try the belt. Sounds like it loses tension after use.

SOURCE: My machins slows to a stop

We had the slow issue and it was the foot pedal. But, rather than replace the pedal I disassembled it, cleaned it, then found a little adjustable pot (resistor). I used a tiny screwdriver to adjust the pot and the speed increased. I noticed that there is a slot in the bottom of the pedal housing that is for accessing the pot without disassembling the pedal. My wife sewed a dress after the repair and so far it is working as it used to.

SOURCE: I need the tension setting

Check the sewing machine thread from the spool to the sewing needle to make sure the sewing machine thread routes are correct through all of the machine's guides. Make all necessary corrections.
Now get a piece of scrap or test material about two feet in length. Place the material under the sewing needle the same way as in a normal sewing process.

The purpose of this first step is for allowing a few stitches to seat in the material only. Mainly just, sew approximately four to five stitches through the material. Repeating this step later will not be necessary.

Knowing what to look for before starting the second step will be important, so the sewing machine thread tension will reach proper adjustment. In addition, this prevents any damage to the machine or material.


In the second step below, look for, while sewing, if a slight noticeable pull to the left occurs as the material passes the sewing needle. When a slight noticeable pull to the left occurs, the machine tension is at proper adjustment. Do not tighten the machine's thread tension knob any further, to prevent any harm to the machine.

Now to begin the second step, turn the machine's tension adjustment knob, one quarter of a turn clockwise. This will tighten the sewing thread tension. Now sew approximately a dozen stitches through the material.

As the material passes the sewing needle, watch to see if the material has a slight noticeable pull to the left. No slight noticeable pull to the left suggests improper sewing thread tension. Turn the sewing machine tension adjustment knob one quarter of a turn clockwise again, to tighten the sewing thread tension, and then sew another dozen stitches.

Keep repeating the process of quarter turn increments clockwise with the sewing machine's tension adjustment knob. Then sewing a dozen stitches, until a slight noticeable pull to the left occurs as the material passes the sewing needle. Once the material does this, the sewing machine thread tension has reached proper adjustment.

1.- Look to see whether the thread loops appear on the fabric back side. If this is the case, the tension on your sewing machine is too loose.
2.- Check to see if your fabric is puckering on the front side when you sew. If this happens, then your tension is too tight.
3.- Adjust your needle thread tension with your machine threaded and your presser foot pedal down.
4.- Turn your thread tension dial as needed. If you increase the number on your tension thread dial, you will be increasing the tension on your sewing machine. If you are lowering the number on your tension thread dial, you will be decreasing the tension on your machine.
5.- Clean your thread tension with a small piece of paper or a toothpick. Slide the toothpick or paper between the discs to remove any tangles of thread.

This and other parts details could find in the Singer 5830 Parts Manual

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: why is the motor of my sears kenmore sewing

it could be different things
have you checked to make sure the plug is correctly in the machine
one time I was sewing on my necchi electronic machine & it for some reason was going slow like you mentioned & so I started checking different thing & found the cord to the foot pedal was laying in side the foot pedal & it couldn't go any faster untill I moved the cord out of the way
it could also be the motor
& also the power cord & foot pedal
it's possible it needs to be serviced since it's been sitting up so long & since it's sewing at a snails pace

My mom's old singer will start sewing then slows down to a stop.


Try loosening the new belt. The object is to put the belt as loose as you can but tight enough that you can stall the hand wheel without the belt slipping. Once you've done that, loosen the clutch and let the motor run freely for a while. Sometimes people put too much oil on the motor. It only needs 1 drop every 10 years or so. Running it for a while lets some of that excess burn off.

It may need a REALLY thorough cleaning & oiling, Cindy, including the motor bearings. The motor's windings may be getting weak, too, or the new belt may be slipping.

Machine No. K1831(256) No.28 how do you set up the stop motion wheel to wind bobbins. It either winds bobbins whilst sewing or just free wheels. I think there must be a way of adjusting this action....

My singer sewing machinen is too fast want to slow it down. How do I service it


Looking over the machine the only way to slow it down may be to put less pressure on the pressure foot. If you need to have it serviced look for a a business that sells machines. Often they service them also. Keeping it clean will go a long way to keeping it in good order. Also it may need a drop of oil in a few places.
