Question about Sewing Machines
I just baught a new singer simple and on the first use after about 20min of sewing the machiene is now stuck in reverse!
can i fix it?
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.

Sounds like you may have a blockage somewhere in the bobbin area that needs cleaning as this is normally what happens when it gets jammed. Reverse sewing can sometimes cause jams. Remove bobbin area and reassemble.

SOURCE: lever is stuck in reverse
If the stitch length bar, which is located on the right side of the
machine, is in the up position move it down to where the numbers are.
Those numbers are referring to how many stitches the machine will sew
in an inch. Therefore, if you put it on 10, your machine will sew 10
stitches per inch. It being up will cause your machine to go in reverse.

SOURCE: Reverse Lever isn't working...
Most likely the "dogs" inside the lever are broken off. Oil/grease on the metal rod cause chemical attack to the plastic lever and the "dogs" break. Singer should know to degrease this rod before assembly.

I have the Singer Touch Tronic 2001. I bought it used for $50. It has the manual and all the parts. However, the manual refers to lifting the top console to access the stitch width selector dial and to change the pattern selector discs. I cannot seem to lift this console up even the manual says that it is hinged for easy access to these parts. Can anyone describe how to lift the console up? Or send a picture or video of this process?
