Question about Singer 6038 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

No power after reverse stitching

I have only started using my Singer 6038 this evening and when trying a reverse stitch all of the power just stopped. I have checked the power supply and changed the fuse and so this is not the problem. Does anyone have any ideas?

If the machine will not turn on or run it sounds like an electrical problem within the machine which i recommend you leave to a technician due to high voltage.

I have just purchased a second hand Singer 6038. When sewing, the machine hesitates about every 15cm of sewing causing the stitch to go off centre. The tension is fine whilst trying various stitches.


I'm wondering if there is a possibility that a puff ball is getting in the tension, needle or bobbin. You might want to look at your thread in the light to see if it is fuzzy. Replace it with good, embroidery thread from someplace other than Walmart. Anyway, do a good cleanup in those areas to ensure there isn't buildup of thread.

Will not zigzag or decorative stitches. New to these newer plastic style machines Always used older steel machines. This was given to me my by my sister who used it very little. Could cam be broken?


Hmm, I'm wondering if it has been cleaned and oiled recently. Older mechanicals require frequent TLC. Consult your owner's manual for cleaning and maintenance instructions:

Is your sewing machine mechanical (ie, not computerized)??? CAUTION--if your machine is computerized, do NOT proceed with the following suggestions.

If it is mechanical, have you cleaned and oiled your machine recently? Most mechanical sewing machine failures are because they have not been adequately and routinely oiled, the old oil has solidified and frozen the mechanics. I recommend Bernina oil or liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube (or similar good quality sewing machine oil) for mechanical machines--do NOT use 3-in-1, cooking oil, WD-40, or the sewing machine oil from your grandmother's sewing basket. (I am not associated with any Bernina dealer.)

If it is in fact frozen, pick up a bottle of liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Oil at the hardware store. Oil one or two drops in every oil hole (see your manual) and also every place where metal rubs on metal. But DO NOT oil any plastic gears, rubber, or belts. If it is still stiff or frozen, direct a hot handheld hair dryer into the top and bottom mechanism of your machine. See if that loosens it up. You may have to repeat.

Once your machine is working again, place a drop or two of good sewing machine oil as directed above. Be sure to use a small brush to clean the lint and dirt out of your machine, especially around the feed dogs and bobbin area. (Caution: Compressed air will sometimes force the dirt and lint into areas that cannot be cleaned.) And continue to use good quality sewing machine oil to keep it running. Recommendation: every time you change a bobbin, after 8 hours of sewing, or every six months if it is not in regular use.

Model 4423 singer stuck in reverse


Solution: Turn off machine. Turn stitch dial until you hear click on each stitch shown on dial. Set to straight stitch then and set stitch width to 6. try machine again being careful to put light force on the foot pedal so your not going full throttle. This is how I "de-confused" my Singer Heavy Duty 4423 when it got stuck on reverse. Hope this helps!

In the center of the stitch length knob (at the right side of the machine) is a button. You would push that button in to get the machine to reverse.

Big loops on bottom stitch


You have no top tension. Rethread the top of the machine. Make shure you raise the presserfoot before threading.
