It might be the way you're asking that's confusing the problem. It's simple to remove the hand wheel, slip the belt over the track, and then replace the hand wheel. It really depends on the model of your machine - is it by chance a 328K?

SOURCE: reverse stitching on a singer 514, HELP!

In the center of the stitch length knob (at the right side of the machine) is a button. You would push that button in to get the machine to reverse.

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.

How to thread the singer 20u33? The tension assembly is new, don't know where the wire is sposed to be...


When you thread the top thread, the thread will drop down on the right side of the tension mechanism and go around the bottom (clockwise) and up the left side. Grab the thread somewhere above the tension mechanism with your right hand and then pull the toward the right (as though you are going to close the circle around the tension disk. The thread should pull on the metal wire (spring) and your thread should pop into the correct position of the tension disk. When you release the thread, the wire spring should pop back to the left. Then you will continue threading through the remaining thread guides and the take-up lever.

Here's a service manual for your machine (in case you need one):

Fixing timing on singer sewing machine 281-3?singer


You need the repair manual, which will tell you what the timing is supposed to be. That's not the user guide, it's the manual for sewing machine repair men. Often available on line, for free or a modest download fee. I got one for my mother's 70 yr old machine for just a couple of dollars.

I inherit a Singer 281-21 sewing machine from my grandmother, and I know nothing about it. She was a seamstress by trade, and brought this one years after she retired. Can you point me in the right...


You have a high speed (for the time) industrial Singer sewing machine. If you click here you will find a free download of the servicing manual for your machine: it's very comprehensive and includes the operating instructions, but as it's aimed at professional users it assumes the user already knows a bit about sewing machines. Note that on the 281-21 regular maintenance and correct lubrication is even more vital than on their domestic machines from the same period.

I hope that you are pleased with the speed and content of my free answer, if so then please take a brief moment to rate my reply. Good luck with your machine, it's a bit of a heavyweight but should give many more years of faultless use if looked after.
