Apply a little singer machine oil to each of the holes along the top and in the working area next to needleplate.........rock handwheel gently and make several full rotations in each direction ......... keep at the rocking and rolling periodically over several hours if necessary....it should come good after a little patience and persistence. Do not apply too much oil, it will only make a mess. NOTE: Belt needs a little give to prevent motor overload, so do not overtighten.

In case you do not have the manual the link is a free downloadable manual from Singer. Make sure everything is plugged in correctly. Check the connection from the machine to the foot controller. Instruction Manuals

I have a singer 301a machine from a cabinet. The needle mechanism does not work at all, but the motor turns. Am I missing something? George


Could be seized due to old oil that has dried. Could also have a belt that is slipping or broken. Does the needle move if you hand rotate the handwheel?

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Bobbins for singer 306k sewing machine


You can find your bobbin--as well as your bobbin case and other accessories and parts--at Sewing Parts Online. Just select Singer parts on the left hand side, and enter your model number in the search box, and it will take you right there. They also sell the foot pedal, needle plate, and a lot of other parts for your machine as well.

Where can i find needles for a singer 306k machine ?


What type of material are you going to be sewing? Sew-Classic has 10 needle packages of the size 12 and size 14 needles for the Singer 306 for light (not fine) and medium weight material. (It's a 206x13 needle for the single needle. The twin needle is a 306x3.) See http://shop.sew-classic.com/206x13-Sewing-Machine-Needles_c46.htm .

http://www.allbrands.com/products/15221-schmetz-german-206x13-flat-shank-needles-100-size has some notes on alternative needles. The site has boxes of 100 size 14 and size 12 needles. (The size 14 needles are out of stock due to delays on the manufacturer's side.) https://www.college-sewing.co.uk/206X13-SIZE-90-PACK-OF-10-NEEDLES (size 14) needles in stock.

Unfortunately, I do not see any twin needles available for the 306K. I hope this helps.

Why does my new Singer cg-500 stop working, then start for a little bit and stop again?


Probably thread wrapped around something....takeup crank, motor pully...if you can get inside to have a look great, if not, find someone who can.

I bought a Singer 328K at a second hand shop. I cleaned and oiled it but the motor just hums and runs very slowly. I think the belt may need tightened or replaced. Is it possible to do it myself and...


The Singer 328K "style-o-matic" is a Class 66 sewing machine with a solid handwheel. Like the 328, and most style 66 machines, this one takes Singer Motor Belt # 193077. Any singer vendor should be able to help you and as of this writing (2010) the part runs around $10. In case you have a parts machine around or find vendors less knowledgeable here are some other machines using the same belt: Pfaff 330 Series Singer 127 Singer 128 Singer 15-88 Singer 15-90 Singer 15-91 Singer 185 Singer 185K3 Singer 206 Singer 206K Singer 223 Singer 27 Vibrating Shuttle Singer 306K Singer 306W Singer 319K Singer 327K Singer 327K Singer 328K Style-O-Matic (YOURS) Singer 329K Singer 66 Singer 66-1 Singer 66-14 Singer 66-16 Singer 66-18 Singer 66-24 Singer 66-4 Singer 66-6 Singer 66-8 Singer 99 Class Singer 99-13 Singer 99-31 Singer 99K
