Re: Not Sewing


Thank you so much for your help. My husband found the switch finger and it turns out the electrical switch was screwed in too tight. The machine is working great. Thanks again

Re: Not Sewing

Look if the buttonhole lever, left back of machine, is push up in position. The beeping sound is a warning message.

Just put my button hole foot on for the first time ready to practise a button hole but it just keeps beeping any ideas?

Yes, you need to review the steps to sew a button hole, because just putting on the foot is not enough. Generally there are several other things that must be set before it will actually sew buttonholes. Download your user's manual free at the Singer Sewing machine website, and review it.

A stitch other than the buttonhole or bar tack stitch was selected and the foot controller was pressed (or the start/stop button was pressed if the foot controller is not connected) while the buttonhole lever is lowered.

Raise the buttonhole lever before continuing the operation.

Machine starts beeping and stops sewing everytime I try to sew

Ok, first of all never do that trying to force it to work thing. It is beeping because there is a problem. Stop... unplug it, remove your work and discover what is wrong. (Likely that you've got thread under the bottom of the feed dogs ... but it could be something entirely computer related... since these are computers... they don't like extreme heat OR cold.

Nothng happens when I step on the foot peddle

Check the pins on the machine plug to make sure none have been pushed in, check the cables for any breaks but make sure the plug is out of the wall first, if you can undo the plug on the lead to check it all well and good, failing that take the foot control and lead into a sewing machine shop so it can be tested

White 1600 SpeedyLock. Power, but foot pedal won't engage. Took foot pedal apart, mechanically looks fine-- computer board in there. Do I need a new foot pedal?

When stepping on the foot control, does the motor hum or anything? Or is dead silent? If it sounds like it's trying to do something, the serger probably needs to be serviced. If it's silent, you probably need a new foot control.

My machine will start sewing but after about an inch or two of stitches it beeps and stops sewing until I take my foot off the presser foot and start sewing again. Can anyone tell me how to make my machine...

If it is threaded correctly, especially on top, there is a sensor that is giving you the beep error message. Common problem but it requires trip to experienced singer tech. Sorry solution is not for consumer, too hard to get to sensors and it is not an specific action for remedy.
