SOURCE: I have a Touch Tronic

This Singer is an older style model, almost entirely mechanical - the electronics are limited to the selection of different cogs and cams destined for the changing of movement of the bobbin assemble and the advance. Once the selection has been done the movement of all the parts is done mechanically, with levers and/or cogged wheels so when one part fails the entire sewing machine is defective. If the damage has occurred in a way that blocks the movement of the failed part then the entire machine is frozen, nothing will move.
Because of that the only way to fix the machine is to completely dismantle it to locate the faulty part and replace it. Due to the complexity of the mechanism this is a job that only a certified and well experienced repairman can do - besides, the replacement part would be extremely hard to fins by an average customer.

SOURCE: When I press the foot

Have you checked the tension setting and also, see if the belt spins free when you press on the foot petal. If the belt seems tight and isn't slipping it's something else. Belts aren't hard to change. Just difficult because you kinda/sorta don't take no for an answer and with slight force, get the old one out and squeeze the new one in while turning the wheel by hand with a little pressure. Seems wrong but that's how they change them in the shop!

Can not catching the bobbin tread at the bottom


The bobbin may be in backwards
the needle is not the correct one for the machine
the needle isn't correctly seated in the needle clamp
the machine is a little bit out of time.
Remember to hang on to the needle thread when you're trying to pick up the bobbin thread
Turn the handwheel in the direction that would advance the fabric from the front to the back of the machine
make sure the bobbin-winding spindle has been pushed back to the left for sewing
make sure your needle is inserted correctly as far as it will go with the flat side facing back
and that the upper tension disks of your machine are threaded correctly.
Make sure the presser foot is up when seating the thread through the upper tension.
Turn the hand wheel (TOWARDS YOU ONLY) never turn the hand wheel away from you and hold the needle thread lightly. .
pull the loop up and then pull both threads (top and bobbin) under the foot and toward the back of the machine.
Also could be a timing problem

Hi! Probably too late to help the original asker, but I have this same machine and was having the exact same problem. 4 beep error message, but mine would not sew at all. Found this question through a google search, but no answer. But I figured it out! I had left the buttonhole lever down!! (Facepalm) I hope this is helpful to future googlers with a similar problem.

Hi I have a Janome 419S or 423S, the problem seems to be my hook race unit keeps getting loose and then the thread jams up. What can be done? Please


A jammed machine is caused by thread being caught in thehook. Remove the upper thread and the bobbin case, turn the hand wheel towardsyou (counterclockwise) by hand and remove any thread in the bobbin case area. Alwaysturn the hand wheel towards you. Turning the hand wheel away from you(clockwise) can cause the machines timing to become unaligned and jam yourmachine. Also, always make sure the presser foot is in the down position beforeyou start sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will jam yourmachine in the bobbin case. If youhave an older model sewing machine with a shuttle hook, then you can alsofollow these: 1. Disconnect the sewing machine from any power source.Loosen the thumb screw on the left side of the sewing machine body and removethe cover to expose the needle bar. This is the shaft that extends down andthat you attach a needle to for sewing. Open the shuttle race and remove the bobbinand bobbin case. 2. Turn the hand wheel toward you until the needle hasreached the lowest point of the stroke. The hook should be at the top of itsstroke inside the shuttle race. Loosen the set screw for the needle bar on theupper part of the machine, this is located on the needle bar bushing (thecollar that the needle bar slides through when making a stitch). The needle barshould slide easily up and down. 3. Turning the wheel again, adjust the position of the tipof the needle so that the upper part of the needle eye is just below the bottomedge of the hook inside the shuttle race. Once in position, re-tighten the setscrew on the needle bar bushing. Do not allow the needle bar to slip whiledoing this. 4. Replace the bobbin and bobbin case and close the shuttlerace. Thread and plug in your machine. Using a sizable scrap of cloth, sew aseam to check to see if there are any skips in the stitching. If there arestill skips re-adjust the timing again until you can sew without any skipped stitches. 5. When proper timing has been achieved replaces the coveron the needle bar and tighten the thumb screw. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

When I press the foot pedal it just whines until I manually move the hand wheel and it starts sewing. It will sew but each time I stop I have to "help" it get started by turning the hand wheel. ...

I'm new to sewing. It did not come with an operating guide and I find the stitch settings really confusing I would like to know how to set it to do a basic straight stitch for a simple dress pattern....


Look for the row of straight vertical lines. This is the straight stitch. There will also be a number dial for stitch length. Use a piece of scrap to find the length of stitch you want. Make sure you have the bottom feed lever or button activated. This will operate the textured plates that come up from underneath to move the material forward or reverse. Also, make sure you drop the presser foot lever before you start. Hold both threads, manually lower the needle to the first stitch starting point and use the pedal from there on. When you press the pedal, you can let go of the threads.

I have a singer 600E touch and sew. I accidently took out the bobbin case and can't seem to get it back in. Can you please tell me how? Thanks


Open the slide plate, and remove the needle plate.The needle plate should be raised by a lever on the right hand side of the bed.Move it to the left, then raise the needle or take it out.It is also easier if you remove the sewing foot.Once you have the slide plate moved towards you you will see a black piece of metal in the front right corner of the bobbin area.Lift it up and slide it to the right.Position the bobbincase with the metal flap that locks the bobbin in towards you so when you lift it up it is on the end closest to you.Make sure the bobbin case is in the groove of the hook(the round thing that spins when you turn the handwheel)once you have the bobbin case in position you bring the black metal pieceover to the left and it will drop down to secure the bobbincase.Turn the hand wheel towards you the bobbincase should stay in place and the hook should turn around it.If it turns smoothly replace the needle plate,close the slide plate,screw the foot back on and replace the needle.You are done. www.sewvac.com
