Question about Singer Featherweight 132Q Mechanical Sewing Machine

Open Question

Presser foot lever does not lift presser foot

My singer sewing machine came to me from a friend.
It doesn't have a model number on it, neither does any of the accompanying literature... manuals, instruction sheets indicate what model it is, so I have had to enter a random model in the space below in order to submit this request for help!

It does have this printed on the manual: "5,8,10, 13 &22 Pattern Sewing Machines."
Here is the problem:
When I raise the presser foot lever the presser foot shank does not raise. The foot remains down.

I can lift the presser foot manually, however. When I do this the lever does not move.

    I have Singer Model 3130 Merritt. The presser foot lever does not lift. There is no room to place material under the presser foot. I think it may be broken. Can I buy a new lever part? The lever moves up and down but the presser foot stays down all the time.

    Thank You.

I've been looking high and low to see if I could find you one for free, but I can not.

You'll have to contact Singer to get a replacement instruction manual. They cost around $10.

I'm sorry I couldn't find you one for free.

Hope this helps. =)

Trying to thread bobbin and viewed manual several times. singer model 7258. screen first flashes C3 and then ][. cannot find troublr shooting codes in manual.


Why do I keep getting a C3 error (accompanied by lots of beeps) when I turn on my machine?The C3 error as well as the beeping when you turn on your machine indicates the foot control plug is not fully pushed into the sewing machine. Turn off your sewing machine and push the foot contol plug into the machine fully. Turn your sewing machine back on.

Need manuals


Most Singer manuals are available from http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . However, you need more than the year of manufacture to determine the correct manual. If you have the serial numbers, go to http://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_machine_company/serial-numbers/singer-sewing-machine-serial-number-database.html to look up the model number. The 1904 machine serial number probably started with B. Singer had ~15 sewing machine models assigned serial numbers in January that year.

I hope this helps.

I need an operating Manual for Singer 1116


Singer has the manual for the 1116 available for $15 (US). Go to http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals and enter the model number. Then click Search and click on the Add to Cart button. Unfortunately, Singer doesn't have a pdf of the manual available for download. Other sites have the manual for sale as well. For example: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-singer-1116.aspx .

I hope this helps.

Need operation manual for my 1995 electronic singer


There are general instruction manuals for machines, but we really need a model number to help you. Singer has a LOT of manuals available at www.singer.com. Go under US, then Customer Support, Manuals. Enter your model number (JUSTj the number) and see if your model comes up.

If it doesn't, or if Singer is charging for the manual and you want a free download, please leave me a comment back with the model number. I've got quite a few websites I can search through that may turn a free one up for download, but without the model number I can't do anything further.

Hope this gives you the answer-but please get back to me if it doesn't. There well may be a manual out there, and there's no reason to waste money or a good machine!

Presser foot lever does not lift presser foot


If you can remove the cover on the left side you will see the presser foot bar. On the bar there will be a screw that may be loose. Turn the handwheel until the needle is all the way down and lift the foot manually until just before it makes contact with the needle clamp and tighten the screw on the presser foot bar.
That should do it.
