If this machine is a Rose, the screen flashes the foot because it thinks the foot is in the up position, not because your using the wrong foot type. There is a spring that can break and a switch that can sometimes go bad that gives that error message. A trip to your service tech is required. That part has a 20 or 25 year guarantee if you are the original purchaser. Labor was covered for one year from date of purchase.

Trying to thread bobbin and viewed manual several times. singer model 7258. screen first flashes C3 and then ][. cannot find troublr shooting codes in manual.


Why do I keep getting a C3 error (accompanied by lots of beeps) when I turn on my machine?The C3 error as well as the beeping when you turn on your machine indicates the foot control plug is not fully pushed into the sewing machine. Turn off your sewing machine and push the foot contol plug into the machine fully. Turn your sewing machine back on.

The pressure foot keeps falling off


Either the mechanism that holds the presser foot in place is broken or defective or the presser foot is not correct for the machine.

Not sure what the problem is but you might try this:

Remove the top thread completely from the machine.
Make sure the machine is cleaned under the needle plate, the hook/bobbin area, the feed dogs, etc.
If your manual instructs oiling, do so as described.
Confirm that the feed dogs are in the raised position.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot then rethread the top thread from the beginning.
Verify the thread path is correct.
Confirm the needle is installed correctly (does the flat part face the right direction?). Is it the right needle for your machine.
Set the top tension to the midway point.
Check that the stitch length is set to at least #2.
Re-test your machine. Tweak the top tension until the top and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

Some machines have a presser foot pressure adjustment that increases or decreases the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric and the feed dogs. You may need to increase this pressure.

As I am sewing it will beep and I have to pick my foot up and start again. It will beep like every 10 stitches. the threading is correct, no needle broken, and it sews fine, however, it continues to beep...


I just had this happen to me recently. The machine will beep if it senses any slack in the thread. In my case, the thread that feeds from the spool to the guides under the plastic disc was not all the way in. Re-thread the machine and pull forward on the thread as it passes the guide.

Keep breaking needles


Hello,
Here are some solutions to try.

* When you insert your new needle, make sure it’s positioned correctly (usually with the flat side away from the bobbin, but consult your manual), that it goes all the way into the holder, and that the screw is securely tightened.


If there doesn’t seem to be a problem with your needle, try the following:

* Check your pressure foot and make sure it’s attached securely.


* Change your pressure foot Your pressure foot may be bent, causing your needle to hit it.


* Don’t sew over pins a needle that hits a pin can break. Always remove the pins from your fabric before they reach your needle.


* Don’t pull your fabric as you sew. You could be bending your needle back, causing it to hit your needle plate instead of going into the hole. Just guide your fabric, letting it feed on its own.


* Check your needle plate and make sure it's securely in position.


* Change your needle plate. If you’ve been using a straight stitch needle plate (a plate with a small hole, often used for sewing fine, delicate fabrics), switch to a needle plate with a wider hole.


* Check the position of your needle. Sewing machines with zigzag capability allow you to adjust the position of your needle – right, left, or center. If your needle is not positioned correctly, it may be hitting your needle plate or pressure foot.

Hope this helps.

My PE 100 keeps breaking needles, they are striking something during use.


    Hello,
    Here are some things to try.

    * Your broken needles may have been too thin for your fabric. Make sure your replacement needle
    is appropriate for the weight and type of your fabric and thread. You may also need a thicker needle if you’re sewing through bulky layers of fabric.

    * When you insert your new needle, make sure it’s positioned correctly (usually with the flat side
    away from the bobbin, but consult your manual), that it goes all the way into the holder, and
    that the screw is securely tightened.


    If this doesn’t seem to be the problem

    * Check your pressure foot
    Make sure it’s attached securely.

    * Change your pressure foot
