My singer sewing machine won't run...first it would stop and then a bit later run again...now, nothing---could it be the belt? or a short in the wire? or the pedal?

SOURCE: Beeping Sewing Machine

Your problem is most certainly with the buttonhole switch. Firstly: Look if the buttonhole lever, left back of machine, is push up in position. The beeping sound is a warning message. Secondly Remove the light cover, left of the machine, loosen back screw and remove left hand screw completely. Check for a small black electric switch, follow the brown and green elecrtic wire, just back of the light. If you push the BH lever up and down the switch finger should also move up and down. If it stays down, the machine will not work and give a beeping sound. If the switch finger is stuck, push it up with the BH in top position. Hope this will help you

Hi Lorraine
I too have an old treadle machine . What my Dad did for me was go to a Harness repair shop and have them cut a piece of narrow leather and that became my belt, take it home and and replace the belt you now have or you can shorten the one you do have , but not too snug,around the wheels , need a bit of slack,,, join the 2 ends together by using a shape needle or whatever it takes to make the hole in the ends of the leather and use a fine strong wire to fasten the ends to meet, looks rough but it works.

I have a IZEK singer sewing machine, I wound 3 bobbins with it and when I went back to sew it would not work


Sandy, I'm not familiar with IZEK machines, but it sounds like the bobbin winder has not correctly disengaged. Put it back into bobbin winding mode and run it (no need to wind a bobbin, just check that the bobbin winder turns), then stop and disengage the bobbin winder and try sewing again. Hope this solves it for you. If it won't turn the bobbin winder either then it may have slipped or broken the drive belt and you will need to take it to your local sewing centre.

My mom's old singer will start sewing then slows down to a stop.


Try loosening the new belt. The object is to put the belt as loose as you can but tight enough that you can stall the hand wheel without the belt slipping. Once you've done that, loosen the clutch and let the motor run freely for a while. Sometimes people put too much oil on the motor. It only needs 1 drop every 10 years or so. Running it for a while lets some of that excess burn off.

I have a singer 247 it was sewing really good but started going slower and slower til it stopped could it be the motor


It is more likely that a bushing internally warms up then seizes partially. A good cleaning and lubrication could solve this. To test the motor remove the drive belt and run the motor with no load, see if it slows down if not see idea above.

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 have a singer sewing machine model #7422. The foot pedal runs but it is not connecting with the machine. Is there a belt in the machine?


Is the balance wheel turning when you press on the foot control? if it is then the stop motion may not be tight enough

My machine continues to run after i take my foot off the pedal.


Undo the foot control and take out the little square bit called a suppressor which you don't need these days anyway and it should be fine.

Machine No. K1831(256) No.28 how do you set up the stop motion wheel to wind bobbins. It either winds bobbins whilst sewing or just free wheels. I think there must be a way of adjusting this action....
