I would take it straight to a machine mechanic. Smoking could be electrical and dangerous, not something to put oil near. At the same time the tech can show you where you would put oil for future reference.

My mashine cant sew forward


I see a lot of these come in my shop. The cost of repairing outweighs the cost of a new machine. Either find a working model at a garage sale, or commit to purchasing a quality machine. The Janome Magnolia 7330 is the least expensive/best quality on the market. Baby Lock A Line Series are also good machines.

I have a Singer Samba 6. It is very old and it hasn't been used over 20 years. Everything is fine, the mashine is working but the feed system is not moving the fabric. I found the manual but it doesnt...


IF IT IS THIS OLD AND SITTING AROUND YOU NEED TO THOROUGHLY CLEAN IT FIRST. TO GET THE OLD GREASE LOOSE YOU WILL NEED TO SPRAY CARBORATOR CLEANER ON IT. USE AN OLD TOOTH BRUSH TO SCRUB WITH AND SMALL RAGS AND QTIPS TO GET HARD TO GET AREAS CLEAN. AFTERWARDS USE SPRAY OIL (WD40) ON EVERYTHING THAT MOVES AND GET THE MACHINE TO MOVE FREELY. THEN CLEAN THIS OIL OFF VERY GOOD; ESPECIALLY AROUND THE BOBBIN AREA. NOW, USE SEWING MACHINE OIL AND LUBRICATE METAL AGAINST METAL MOVEMENT OF PARTS. REMEMBER, YOU MUST DO THIS ON THE TOP AND UNDERNEATH. BY THE TIME YOU HAVE DONE THIS THE FEED DOGS SHOULD BE FUNCTIONING. MAKE SURE THE FEED LENGTH IS ABOVE ZERO OR THE MATERIAL WILL NOT MOVE.

Hiya, i've got synergy mobile sewing mashine, been sitting in box for years. I decided to try it out. I've been using for about an hour and it stopped working. Changed the socket, fiddled with the cables,...


If it had been sitting for a while, you probably need to oil it before using. Doesn't mean it's completely knackered, clean it and oil it (should be instructions in your user's manual) and see if it will start again. If not, probably take it to a shop and see if they can get it going.

Sewwing mashine sudenlly just turned off


if you have tried unplugging and letting it set for a few mins and plugging it back in... and still have no joy... it is likely that a short or something blew a fuse. I would take the machine in and have them do a check, clean and adjust while they did the repair.

My sewing mashine doent work propertly


First unplug the machine from the wall....Try cleaning the unit and oil at all the oil-points. Check that the unit is threaded properly. Check your tension of the thread, and the tension of the bobbin..Check the bobbin compartment for any thread strands. Remove the bobbin and holder and turnmachine by hand to see if the bobbin area rotates back and forth. The stitches are created with this action. If there is any debris clean it out . check the belt also ,many times the belt gets worn and slips. Hope that this helps I can only try to guess a solution, as your question is vague.
