SOURCE: I removed the presser foot

I just looked at your free manual on the site and it looks a little complicated to do, Do you think that maybe downloading the manual and enlarging the diagrams on pages 10 & 11 may help you? If not, call Singer customer service, at 1-800-4singer and ask for some advice. Good luck

Testimonial: "This wasn't really helpful. I had already followed the instructions in the manual, but wasn't able to do the last step listed."

SOURCE: hand wheel turns bobbin but not presser foot

it needs to be checked by a sewing machine repair shop to see what wrong with it

Where do I find the serial number on old singer sewing machine. I've turned it over and found a number on it but can't find anything online. I have no idea the be of this machine

Singer machines have the serial number mounted on the top of the flat bed on the right-hand side (front of the machine). See for a picture of the serial number location. This is the hand-wheel side of the machine. If the machine is in a built-in cabinet that covers this area, you may need to remove the housing. Some old machines could have had the rivets damaged and lost the serial number plate.

I hope this helps.

How old is my singer sewing machine model 6408

Get the serial number from the machine--on your machine it should be on the right end, underneath the hand wheel.

Once you have that, go to the singer sewing machine site and select Support and Resources at the top, and "machine serial numbers" under that.

Singer sewing machine 8280 handwheel jammed while stitching. It will go backwards, but not forward, happened while sewing, thread jammed up. cleaned out but still won't advance.

Turn the hand wheel HARD in the direction it was traveling. Then remove the thread and the needle and run it full speed for 20 seconds to put it back in time.

My Singer Quantum XL 1000 is jammed and does not move. The light is on. Please help


Try to turn the hand wheel (on the right side of the machine) backwards ( if you are facing the right side of your machine, turn it clockwise) and try to remove the thread. Once its freed up, change the needle.

Hope that helps,

It needs a good cleaning of lint, thread etc. take your bobbin case out and make sure that there is nothing in there. DO NOT TURN YOUR HAND WHEEL BACKWARDS! It will mess up your timing. If you cannot free it up take it for service
