I'm not familiar with this model, but in some machines, the bulb is in a socket underneath the arch. On some machines, you open the side door above the needle mechanism and the bulb is in there.

If you can reach the bulb, depending on the machine, some have a small screw in lamp, just like a regular light bulb, But others use push in bulbs. Typically you remove it by pushing in gently, and turning it as you do so, so it pops out. If one way isn't working, turn the other way. Replace the same way, turning in the other direction.

Testimonial: "This model is different than the model you are talking about.There is no side door to open. The bulb appears to be part of a module and there is no apparent way to extract the bulb externally. Thank you."

    I see. Might be to your advantage to try to find a manual for this machine. If Singer doesn't offer them any longer, there are a number of sites online that offer copies of many manuals for a modest cost.

SOURCE: my singer athena 2000 won't

Yes, the hook timing is off. You need to either take it to a service repair center, or do the timing yourself. If you're mechanically inclined, go to youtube and look for a video by Nilsandkatrina about how to repair your sewing machine. He gives a very good example.

How to replace motor belt on singer 2ooo atens


I think you're referring to the Singer Athena 2000, a slant needle, touch and sew machine.

I don't have a service manual for that machine, but on all the machines that I have worked on, there are two belts near the hand wheel, and the tensioner is at the center--the part where both belts come together--and you can adjust it by loosening two Phillips screws.

However, before you attempt something like that, you will need the parts number, and I would purchase the service manual. You can get a part list free and purchase the service manual here. Singer Athena and Touch Tronic

How do i thread the bobbin on a singer athena 1200 sewing machine


The Athena 1200 and 2000 are "Touch and Sew" slant needle machines. Singer has not made them for many years, but I always loved them, because the bobbin is wound in place--you don't take it out! You can still get a full assortment of presser feet for them; just make sure they're for slant needle machines.

You would be wise to visit the Singer Sewing Machine site and download your user's manual--it's free, and it will show you how to wind the bobbin. There are a series of pictures there as well. There are several steps you need to take, such as raising the presser foot, selecting the blind hem stitch, etc. Sounds complicated, but I owned an Athena 1200, and I can tell you that after the first or second try, you'll find it quite easy.

Incidentally, did you know that it's one of those rare machines that will do a TRUE 1/2" basting stitch! I kept it for years, just for that ability!

How do I thread a Singer Athena 2000?


The user's manual for the Singer Athena 2000 is a free download from the Singer Sewing Machine site. It will show you how to thread your machine properly. A heads-up, though--the presser foot MUST be UP when you thread ANY machine from ANY manufacturer, going back at least a century!

Singer Athena 2009 needle hitting plastic in bobbin case


here's something to check
is the needle inserted all the way in to the needle holder?
needle--flat side goes to the back of the machine
is the needle clamp screw tight or loose?
if the needle is correctly in the needle holder & the needle clamp screw is tight --then the needle bar is out of time & need to be serviced
IF YOU DO HAVE TO TAKE IT TO BE SERVICED AFTER YOU GET IT HOME STOP RIGHT THEN & SEW ON THE MACHINE TO MAKE SURE THEY FIXED THE MACHINE & IT SEWS LIKE IT SUPPOSE TO, I HAD ONE CUSTOMER THAT TOOK THEIR MACHINE TO A SHOP & THEY CLEANED IT AGAIN & DIDN'T FIX IT BUT CHARGED THEM FOR IT & THEY BROUGHT IT TO ME TO FIX & IT HAD TO BE RETIME
did you get a instruction manual for the machine if not check at singer
Go to the singer website
Click on customer support--there will be a drop down menu
Choose instruction manual
In the box type the model number---2009
Click search--if you don't see a manual--contact singer customer service

Yes it's true, most parts are not available for this machine anymore. You might try to push the red reset button on the bottom of the machine. Also make sure that the reset button is not being depressed by anything that the machine is sitting on, and that the reset button pushes in and out freelyl.
