Question about Singer 5400 Sew Mate 60-Stitch Sewing Machine
The needle broke when I tried to sew elastic waste band to my garment - the last step left of an otherwise smooth operation --- but after replacing the needle - I cannot get the needle to pick up the bobbin & therefore have not been able to sew.
Hai, You can use (elastic) big size new quality needle. Then last 10 or 5 steps off the machine movie the handle.

Testimonial: "Thanks! I was hoping to avoid paying for a fix, but it looks like I have to **** it up. So much for being thrifty and restyling my clothes."
You can download a manual for $10 at www.sewingmanuals.com and it should help you. A couple of suggestions though, is your needle inserted correctly? Flat side facing the rear of the machine, fresh needle? Threaded correctly on top and bobbin area? Is your thread good not too old and the same type in bobbin and top? Did you leave a long enough tail in the bobbin thread? 3-4 inches which you hold with your left hand. Is the thread in the bobbin unwinding the right way? Are you turning the handwheel towards you, not away from you at least two revolutions or until you see the thread loop? Try these suggestions, and I am sure one will work unless your timing is off and it needs professional service.

I would try cleaning the area with some alcohal on a cotton swab and change needle. You may have caused a problem with your timing, I hope not because you will need it to be set again by your authorized center. I know there are directions on the internet but I would rather make sure that it is done right,and knock out your warranty. You have a nice machine.
