It appears that it calls for an occasional one drop of sewing machine oil (ONLY sewing machine oil) between the bobbin basket (holds the bobbin case) and the hook. There is a photo of it on Page 44 of your user's manual. If you don't have the manual, you can download one free from the Singer Sewing Machine site.

My daughter lives in Mexico and is having a problem with her machine. She is sewing heavy fabric; the machine made 3 beeps and now only sews in reverse. Before you had to really push the reverse button,...

I would try calling Singer at 1-800-4singer, and ask them. With her being in Mexico may not be easy getting service. She could try putting in a heavier needle and see if it helps, oiling and cleaning too. I am just hoping it is not her timing, is it still under warranty? Her manual is available for free online at to download. Good luck

Singer model 2638 will only straight stich all of a sudden

Try changing your needle. That is the most common cause for this. If you hit a pin or broke a needle, it could have been thrown out of time. Try changing the needle, that will in all likelihood correct the problem.
