Question about Singer Sewing Machines

2 Answers

I have a singer Samba 6 sewing machine and it has stopped sewing. It started to miss a few stitches then just stopped sewing. I took the sole plate off and took the boobin casing out as there was so much dust and cotton in side the housing of the machine. I have cleaned all of this out and have put it back together in the right place I think. when I put a bobbin in the needle picks up the thread ok. I have lost the instructions to my machine so I am unable to check that I have put everything back properly and of course I have no book to help me with any problems. Is there any way that I can download the manual for this machine anywhere on line. Thanks I do hope you can help me very soon as I'm in the middle of sewing.

I have a singer cxl electronic sewing machine and i have a problem with the needle either not moving or stopping when stitching the larger motifs or the zigzag stitch, somtimes the needle jut moves too...


The needle either not moving or stopping is a sign that the machine is jamming. Here's the answer for the question "My machine is jammed" from the FAQs on Singer's web site at http://www.singerco.com/support/faqs.html

A jammed machine is caused by thread being caught in the hook. Remove the upper thread and the bobbin case, turn the hand wheel towards you (counterclockwise) by hand and remove any thread in the bobbin case area. *Always turn the hand wheel towards you. Turning the hand wheel away from you (clockwise) can cause the machines timing to become unaligned and jam your machine. Also, always make sure the presser foot is in the down position before you start sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will jam your machine in the bobbin case.

Your description of the needle hitting the plate or foot is an indication that the machine's timing has become unaligned which can be caused as indicated above by turning the hand wheel away from you - the correct way is to *Always turn the hand wheel towards you.

Singer Samba 6 sewing machine


It would be wise to have the machine cleaned & serviced. Do you have a manual for it? Did it come with oil at one time? I found a free manual at
http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/singer/7442.html

You have to register (free)...choose to skip the popups (2)...and you can save the manual to your hard drive.

I checked the manual...you don't need to oil the machine...but page 61-63 shows cleaning...and it's basic. You take the two screws from the throat plate, remove the bobbin case & brush the inside of the machine bed out...I use a small artists plastic bristle brush, or a small childs tooth brush.

Hope this helps.

Skipping stitches and sometime the thread breaks.


Sounds like a tension problem maybe. Too tight tension will bend, and break the needle, especially if sewing fast in free machine embroidery, in this mode, the tensions have to be looser anyway. I can't explain why the wheel flagged and stopped, but experiment with tensions first.

Machine beeps and stops sewing, no error message displayed


sounds like not through the tension plate (on top) right... rethread and make sure you hold the thread taunt toward you as you putt through top tension... you should hear a slight click and some resistance...

New Singer Futura machine stops & tries to revert to overlock.


Sorry to say but it sounds to me that you need to take your machine in to be checked.
