Er has appeared on the stitch width screen instead of a number and the machine is unresponsive. Suggestions before I take it for service?

Try turning off and unplugging for a while to see if it will reset.

If that doesn't work, then the software or a component has failed. Best to take it for service.

How do i fix ?

Consult the owner's manual. Usually there is a list of error codes in the troubleshooting section that may help you determine why your machine is malfunctioning. If not, you can search the internet for:

Manufacturer + Model + ER-16

If no results, contact the manufacturer's support site.

Singer 6038 tension dial not working

there should be small washers ( discs with a tapered flange to direct the thread between the plates ) if they are not under the spring behind the tension adjuster knob then that will be your problem
if they are there then check that the tread is between the plates and not behind them
missing plates are available from a sewing machine mechanic sgop

The dog feed stuck in the downward position.

Have you turned the machine off and then back on?

The switch may be broken and you will need to find a sewing machine repair shop that repairs all brands of sewing equipment.

If you decide to purchase another machine try a different brand. This one seems to have on a lot of issues.

The dog feed stuck in the downward position.

When you set the switch for the feed dogs to be in the up position, turn the handwheel 1 complete revolution and they should come up.

I want to know which knob I use to make the stitching narrower

there are generally two variable controls .. one adjusts the stitch length (distance between stitches measured in stitches per inch) ... the second is stitch width .. that adjusts how far the zigzag moves left and right .. thats usually just a number from 0 to 10 or so .. 10 would be maximum width .. 0 would be used for straight stitch ..
so you need to adjust the stitch width control to make the stitching narrower .. the controls are called different things on different brand sewing machines .. if you have the brand and model number then there may be instruction booklets available ...
