Question about Singer Sewing Machines

1 Answer

My Singer 111W100 turns itself off and turns off the multiplug surge protector. What do I do?

Checked the wires, all connected. If I hold down the on button on the surge protector, the engine fires up again and then I hear a click and it tries to turn off the surge protector, turns it off, comes back on...on and off.

    Great - I will pick one up tomorrow. The previous owner said the machine never acted like that before. I hope this does the trick!

It sounds like you have to take it in and have it checked by a repair shop, without seeing it, I really do not know what you are saying, as in "hook", turning the handwheel backwards messes up the timing, you always have to turn it towards you. Look at your manual and please identify the parts you are trying to explain with their correct names or we really do not know what you mean

SOURCE: I have loaded my Singer 626 sewing machine bobbin properly, and when I try to bring the lower thread up by turning the wheel, nothing comes up. I do hold the upper thread taunt, so it can 'grab

Make sure your needle is correct for the machine and make sure it is fully inserted and undamaged.

you just hold onto the thread... you don't need to hold it taut.

I had a power surge that caused my Ce-200 Singer machine to stop working. How do I get it to go forward to pick up where I left off?

The design memory has probably been lost so there may not be any way of completing your design.

In the future, be sure to use a good surge protector on your machine. It's well worth the price...

Singer simple sewing machine will not move forward, but will sew reverse with holding the reverse lever down like it is supposed to do. I have been sewing for 50+ years. No simple answers please

Sorry--the only thing I can find is that possibly the auto reverse is turned on. Other than that, perhaps contact Singer directly or take it for service.

Singer 111w100 cannot easily rotate hand wheel. Oiled but no improvement. Do internal parts go bad? Adjustments possible?

Your machine probably needs a lot of TLC. Unless something is broken, most likely the problem is lack of cleaning and oiling. If it is in a humid location, could also be rust.

Perhaps this will help (particularly using Tri-Flow Synthetic Oil and a hairdryer):

Why would my Bernina 880, 10 months old, not boot up?

While the surge protector is an excellent thing to use, BERNINA sewing machines also have a set of fuses in the power supply. There is a chance that one of these fuses has blown. My recommendation would be to take your machine into your local BERNINA dealer to get it checked out. As long as you have checked the cord, the surge protector, changed plugs on both, and checked the circuit breaker in the house, it is probably an internal issue that is best fixed by a certified BERNINA technician.

You can find a nearby dealer, at the enclosed link or go to the store where you purchased your machine.

I want to tighten the bobbin tension on my Singer 111w100 but it will not tighten any further and the tension is WAY too loose and the stitches look horrible. Any fix for this?

I sure that this tension problem is not a tension, it sounds to as if the hook pick up is slightly out of timing with the needle, and it's what you call slip stitching, if you are handy you can correct this yours self, remove the top plate that cover the drive dogs remove the shuttle bobbin to expos? the needle and hook you may need to remove the drive dogs make sure you note the position of them, when your able to see the hook turn the drive wheel in the correct rotation and as the needle goes down to it's lowest point to were it about to start it's way up the pick up hook should just be going behind the needle to pick up the thread if it's not then you need a screwdriver that you can trap against the hook body not the hook it's self as you will damage it and with the other hand hold the hand wheel tight as you move the hook case one way or the other you may need to use the hand wheel to do this to give you more leverage, do this until you are satisfied that you have the correct timing position for the thread to be picked up, normally you would undo clamp screw that hold the hook case in position but more often than not you can do this without doing this, once done turn hand wheel several turns to make sure the needle is in the correct position reassemble and give it a run. I hope this cures your problem.

Happy Sewing

Singer 2010 doesn't want to stop

I have a Singer Merritt 4530.  I don't know if the foot pedal works the same way on your model, but on mine it is held together not by screws or latches, but simply by white plastic rods that serve as hinges.  These rods have a hole drilled in their center, presumably so some special tool can be used to pull them out.  Lacking a special tool, I glued a nail into the hole, and once the glue dries you can pull the nail and pull the rod out with it.  The rod is about an inch long and held in place merely by friction - no glue or screw threads.  Once one rod is removed, you should be able to slide the pedal off of the rod on the other side, though that might have only worked because some of the plastic housing was cracked on mine.  If you don't want to take the time to test that, just glue a nail into both rods and pull them both out.
Once you get the pedal open, mine had a giant white cylinder that looks kind of like a battery or a fuse.  This thing was getting very hot the longer the pedal was left plugged in.  I read on many web sites that this object can cause overheating or short circuit the pedal so it's always sewing.  It's called a suppressor and can be safely thrown away.  I haven't found an explanation for precisely what it does or why it can be safely thrown away, but I theorize it's a surge suppressor and that most modern wiring isn't going to surge too much.  I got rid of it and the pedal still works and doesn't overheat.  It may be safest to plug the machine into a surge-protected power strip once the suppressor is gone - just my theory.

Singer 2010

If model 2010, the problem is a part metal- part plastic part attached to the bottom of the bobbin winding lever, the white tear-shaped thing with the arrow on it. If that will turn past the center of the bobbin it's broken inside. to try a do-it-yourself fix, turn upside down, remove 4 screws, including one by the plug (which must be pulled out for safety anyway) remove bottom case. looking at left end of the works, move the bobbin lever and you'll see the broken part move. The plastic part should be broken about half-way down. You can see how the part should push the white plastic bobbin winding shaft up and down when lever moved. the part can be removed by loosening the 2 tiny hexnuts holding it on the metal shaft. you'll need the smallest size allen (hex) wrench there is. NOTE where the part is at bottom of the metal shaft for when you put have to put it back on. be careful to hold the bobbin winding shaft itself in place, but it's easy to see how it goes back in if it pops out. if the break is clean (like my wife's that I just fixed this way yesterday!) you can put a drop or 2 of good crazy glue in the break, making sure lined up on the sides, then clamp in a vise (or hold firmly together with pliers) for at least 10 mins, longer better. wait at least an hour before putting back. putting back on is a little tricky but you move the bobbin lever to left (open) position, make sure it's just on the end of the shaft (shaft barely protruding) and see where the part isn't pushing the bobbin winding shaft. re-tighten with hex wrench then see if the repaired part now pushes the bobbin winding shaft up and down when you move the lever back and forth. Turn back over and move the lever without a bobbin spool- you should see shaft move up in the middle of bobbin case where it will engage the bottom of the bobbin spool where the x is.
Now if part can't be fixed it is available from auth Singer service center in you state but runs $40 or so. they'll try to tell you they have to install it because of special anti-static gloves that wont fry your motherboard on the machine's computer, but the center in Michigan finally said they would mail it to me. hope this helps! funny I just saw this after fixing our machine which hadn't been used for a long time until I decided I might as well look inside if I was going to have to buy her a new machine!!!

Putting on the tension wire by the needle.

It is a thread guide and if you don't reconnect it your machine will still work.Don't worry about it too much.
To reinstall it you need to place one end around the screw in such a position so that the guide will travel behind the needle bar, to the left side of the needle bar and then to the front of the needle guide. When you have it in this position you should have no real problem screwing it back on.
