SOURCE: sewing machine, strange noise

Is the needle in right? There is a front and back to a needle. Also is it the right needle for the machine?

SOURCE: We recently bought a used 301 Singer Sewing

If I remember the 301 is an American model slant needle with a gear driven motor, the machines were known as 'Rockets' the noise you can hear is the play in the shaft of the motor which is very common to that model if it is where the noise is coming from, if the noise is coming from the needle area then a drop of oil might do it some good.

SOURCE: I have a Singe 3116. The needle not working

the clutch is out. that allows you to wind a bobbin. take it out of bobbin mode and put it in sew mode (clutch in)

SOURCE: arm wont move and needle wont go up and down any

Annoying solution, but works every time. Remove the ENTIRE bobbin casing from the base and then turn the wheel. The needle should lift right out. Reassemble bobbin casing and oil very well.

This generally only happens when you are sewing through several layers of fabric or though a thick fabric. If you are doing neither, the timing in your machine may be off and you will need to get it repaired.

SOURCE: Needle moves up and & down and sews for a few

If you look at the website, www.sewvacdoctor.com and you can see, they say it may be your foot pedal or transducer(speed control inside the machine) I would call Singer and see if it is still under warranty, hopefully it is. If it is the foot controller, that is not too expensive, I don't know about the transducer. But, call Singer at -800-4singer and tell them what is happening. Good luck

Why does it make a knocking noise as it sews?


the needle position is up tight in the holder and no where else
the cut away bit of the needle faces the bobbin case hook and the groove in the needle faces the end of the machine and gives clearance for the thread to pass through the material
from your description and what you did, the needle /hook timing needs adjusting as it is out
turn the machine over by hand as in sewing and watch the position of the eye of the needle and the bobbin case hook
just as the needle starts to move up, the hook should be just above the eye of the needle at the edge of the needle
The adjustment is by loosing off the screw on the vertical shaft at the end of the machine that is attached to an arm that moves the needle up and down and move that bit up or down until the needle is positioned correctly to the hook
tighten up the screw
next is to check the needle tension is not too tight
workshop manuals are available on line in pdf version or take it to a sewing machine repair shop for a proper diagnosis

you may have knocked it out of time. when you heard the noise it might have been the needle hitting the fabric to hard which can sometimes knock your machine out of time. you may have to find a local sewing machine store that fixes machines. if you find one they should be able to repair it for little to no cost.
