Question about Sewing Machines

First the power cord seemed to have a short in it and would only work if the cord was supported and left in that position . Next it stopped beeping when the stitches were changed. Now it does not work at all.

A short would cause a bight spark and burning of the cord at the place of the short.
Sound like you have a poor electrical connection at or inside the machine where the cord attaches.
Take it to a repair shop.

Why when I was sewing one minute and the next it stopped completly and my light went out. Put in new bulb nothing still works?


You machine has an electrical disconnection somewhere. Most likely it is in the power cord, but could also be inside the machine itself.

Best to take it for repair unless you can test with a different power cord.

It beeps after a few seconds of sewing... four sets of two beeps


Check to make sure that your buttonhole lever is all the way up. Pull it all the way down, then gently "smack" it up into position.

Next, check to make sure your bobbin winder is no engaged. Push it all the way to the right, then all the way to the left.

Necchi 538 will not stop running; starts running as soon as plugged in.


the machine could have a short in it or the power cord,, it would be a good idea to have the machine and power cord checked...

Serger randomly stopped working, could it be power cord? plug?


Make sure there isn't lint caught on the loopers if it is not a loose connection from the machine/wall. On some machines, if the bulb has blown out, the machine will not operate until replaced. It sounds to me like fabric or thread is caught and, therefore, your machine has temporarily stopped until you unplug it and remove the debris.
Hope this helps!

Elna supermatic...the light comes on ,,but nothing else works


Turn the machine on, press the foot control down and turn the handwheel backwards. If it sputters, the motor carbon brushes are worn to the springs and need replacing.

Next, while pressing on the foot control, try wiggling the wires around where it enters to machine and where it enters the foot control. There may be a short in the cord. If the short is at the machine, you need a new cord. If it is at the foot control, the cord can be pulled into the foot control, the shorted part cut off and the connection reattached.

If it still doesn't work, try removing the cord from the machine and placing an alligator clip test lead to two of the inlet prongs on plugging it into power. Which two prongs you ask? Try several combinations, (one will light up the lamp) CAREFUL: THE MACHINE MAY SUDDENLY TAKE OFF AT FULL SPEED, SO REMOVE THE BOBBIN, THE THREAD AND NEEDLE FIRST. if it runs, it is your foot control. If it doesn't run, it's likely the motor brushes or motor.

Singer 7422 beeps and all lights come on when peddle is pressed.


There are several sensors on this machine that just start causing the machine to malfunction for no apparent reason. One is one the bobbin winder, one on the buttonholer, and one under the machine which workd with the feed. It is far from an exact thing. If you can get to them, sometimes loosening them, moving them about then tightening them seems to 'fix' them. Sometimes not. Wish we could be more exact in explaination but sometimes we will move them repeatedly then they start working. It is hit and miss.

Beeping Sewing Machine


Your problem is most certainly with the buttonhole switch. Firstly: Look if the buttonhole lever, left back of machine, is push up in position. The beeping sound is a warning message. Secondly Remove the light cover, left of the machine, loosen back screw and remove left hand screw completely. Check for a small black electric switch, follow the brown and green elecrtic wire, just back of the light. If you push the BH lever up and down the switch finger should also move up and down. If it stays down, the machine will not work and give a beeping sound. If the switch finger is stuck, push it up with the BH in top position. Hope this will help you
