Question about Yamata FY700 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I have a Singer 9410. It has been a great machine. I bought it about 20 years ago. I just got it out again and have been sewing on it. All of a sudden it sews very slow and the hand wheel is very hard to turn. Do I need to have it oiled and/or cleaned? Where do I oil it? I called a shop and they said it should be in your manual. It tells how to clean it it the manual, but not where to oil it.
If you still need the Manual E-mail me @ firstname.lastname@example.org be sure to put in comment part of e-mail something Like "Looking for a singer 8834 manual" as I delete all e-mail without reading them unless I know the person or what e-mail is about and know its safe , and even then I scan all and report any found to have viruses , etc

SOURCE: My machins slows to a stop
I had the same trouble that you're talking about and it really was just like running out of gas ! I took my machine to a repair shop & "fixed the problem" by getting a diffrent foot pedal. The problem here is , this pedal though it is a singer , went to another model & it makes the most god awful humming noise when at rest. Does anyone know where to get a singer foot pedal Part No.# 362095 ? for a super low price ( ok , how about just a fair or reasonable ?) . this noise is nearly enough to drive me away from my beloved sewing & on many occasions it has! it's not a lack of patience or that I can't take noise (trust me I have 4 children 2 dogs & a husband) it's just the wrong noise ! Anyway , sorry , but the only solution is as far as I know, to get a diffrent pedal (hopefully the one mentioned above for best results)

SOURCE: only sews backwards
On most sewing machines there is a little lever that controls the direction that the fabric is drawn through the machine. The lever on yours must be in the 'reverse' position.
reach around the back of the head and see if it back there.

SOURCE: hand held singer sew quick
Remove the plastic pin holding the bobbin (thread source) - careful to not lose the spring.
You may need a pair of pliers to get it loose the first time.
Press down on the edge of the bobbin so the pliers can grip the pin - lay a piece of material over the pin so the plies do not gouge the plastic - twist and pull.

there's probably nothing wrong with your machine.
check and see if your stitch length setting is set to Stretch instead of somewhere between 2 and 3.
If it's in the stretch zone (below 0), it can sometimes sew backwards unexpectedly depending on what stitch you have selected.
make sure you have selected a straight stitch, and then select the highest stitch width and a stitch length of somewhere between 2 and 3.
it will most likely work fine.
