Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Singer Touch-tronic 2000 makes loud humming/buzzing noise, stitch selector lights quit working, needle bar stopped moving.

The machine started making a loud humming/buzzing noise. It only sewed in reverse. The stitch selector lights quit. If I turned the machine off, held in the reset button and turned the machine back on the noise stopped until the machine was turned off and back on. Then the noise started again. Help!

Sounds like you've got a thread jam going on in the bobbin case area. Good cleaning and a new needle will probably fix it. See: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091202121550AAHxN8y

they are known to break

How do I stop my singer prelude sewing machine from making so much noise?


Reset all dials. Straight stitch, 1 or 2 in length, ease the thread tension and see if it helps. The only area that makes noise is around the bobbin/needle part of sewing machines.

Sorry you are having a problem All machines work fine until they break. These early computer machines often had hand soldered components that are outdated. Sadly those are not supported by the manufacturer any more and most sewing technicians would advise you replace it with the problems you described.

Singer 4423, timing out,what line up with what


I don't think it's a major timing issue, so don't panic. Take a look at your selected stitch pattern selector and set for straight stitch, and set Tension at 3-4. Width: 4. Length: 4. Make sure presser foot Down when you rethread machine so the tesion disks open up to locate thread. Always hold thread taut when "feeling" for tension slot. Insert new needle. Needle goes all the way up into needle clamp as far as it can possibly go, FLAT side needle toward needle bar and more rounded side needle facing you. Leave 6" tail. Hold thread toward you as you turn hand wheel toward you so needle can make a loop with bobbin thread. Make sure bobbin thread isn't hanging down on or across bobbin! Make sure thread in bobbin has wound evenly - good quality thread ideal! Clean bobbin area and feed dogs for broken, loose threads and lint. Always use needles appropriate size for weight of fabric. I suggest walking away from machine, taking deep, cleansing breadth, humming a favorite tune, then doing above and see how it goes! Soon your machine will be humming happily along with you. Hope these suggestions help. Jimmy

I have a Singer Touch Tronic 2010 from 1980. The problem that keeps occuring is the needle pounds up and down on the spot, the feed dogs don't push the fabric through. This occurs if it's set to ...


If your machine was made in 1980, it's very unlikely it has computer components, or at the most, very few. It sounds more like the machine has not had a thorough service (clean & oil) in a while and the old oil has caused the machine to seize. If you want to try to work on it yourself (it takes lots of time and patience, some good quality oil--in this case Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube--and usually some heat). Otherwise, take it for service. If it hasn't been serviced for quite some time, it may be worthwhile having it serviced since the technician can check out all the mechanical parts and make adjustments.

I think if you watch the hook as you turn the wheel you will see that it is not moving.If it's not moving it can't pick up the thread or sew or wind the bobbin. If you really like this machine you can take it to a technician who is going to tell you you have a broken gear.Always have them replaced in pairs. On this machine there are 2 gears( 1 Pair) on the left and 2 gears( 1 Pair) on the right. If the machine is making buzzing noises, replace the machine instead of the gears. Singer makes a nice machine which sells for around $300 which will do more than the one you have and it is easier to use. Look at Model 7467. I sell quite a few of these and they don't give me or my customers problems.

Singer Touch Tronic 2001 Sewing Machine Stuck on Sewing Straight Stitch Only


I had a similar problem a couple of years ago. I finally figured out that I had the straight stitch needle plate (the one with the single hole), rather than the zig zag needle plate (the one with the curved hole). When I changed plates, it worked fine.
