It could be the machine needs to be cleaned and lubricated.

It could be the motor needs to be repaired or replaced.

It could be the power pedal needs to be repaired or replaced.

Refer to the maintenance section of the manual for your machine for cleaning and lubricating.

The rest has to be seen live for trouble-shooting.

Take to your sewing machine dealer for an evaluation.

My memory craft 2000 new home sewing maching is suddenly sewing very slowly


Is it an older mechanical machine (not computerized)? Bet it needs a good oiling. Old oil will dry out and turn to glue/varnish and actually prevents parts from moving and dragging on the motor. Use only fresh good quality sewing machine oil or Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube. Open the top, left side, and bottom of the machine. Slightly rock the handwheel and apply 1-2 drops of oil every place metal rubs on metal. Do NOT oil rubber, leather, or synthetic/nylon parts.

If it is still sluggish, you can direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the interior mechanics of the machine to help loosen things.

Older machines do need frequent oiling--ie, every time a new sewing project is begun or every six months if not in use. If a large project like a quilt, more frequent oiling may be needed. When you become familiar with the pleasing sound of a well-running machine, you will recognize when it needs some TLC.

I found out my machine is low shank. Can I use the low shank roller presser foot #151 on my Singer 20U53 machine?


I'd put them side by side and if everything matches up then I'd think you would be able to use it. Place it on the shank and very slowly turn the handwheel to make sure the needle doesn't hit. If all looks ok then I'd make a few stitches, again very slowly.

Necchi supernova manual


Most sewing machines can use a double needle, the one with the single mounting shank and it turns into two needles.
MAKE sure you have Zig Zag needle plate installed to accomodate the double needle.
Turn hand wheel slowly to test then use thread and fabric and turn flywheel by hand to test sew.

My sewing machine will not pick up the bobbin thread


double check the timing. The hook must pick up the loop in the needle thread as it starts on its up stroke.
Remove bobbin cover, needle plate etc to expose hook. Turn hand wheel slowly towards you until needle reaches its very lowest point
then continue to turn very slowly until needle comes up about 3/16" in this position the tip of the hook should be exactly behind the needle and just above its eye

Singer stylist 533 timing


1st time feed dogs to raise and lower in time with the needle bar going up and down. Fit needle and slowly turn balance wheel towards you until needle is at lowest point, note where hook point is. Turn balance wheel towards you very slowly and stop when needle has risen about 3/16" from it lowest point. The hook should be immediately behind the needle and slightly above the eye.

Wheel turns very slowly does not speed up when


Try oiling all the moving parts with WD40, old oil on the machine may have congealed, make sure there is no thread stuck in the raceway.

LS 2125i haveing problems getting the top thread


I don't know about now, but in the old days you had to pull out about three inches of thread through the eye of the needle & hold it with plenty of slack while turning the wheel on the end of the machine slowly. Once the needle disappeared below the plate & then reappeared you could stop turning the wheel & slowly pull on the end of the thread you are holding to pull the thread from the bobbin up. Of course there must be thread on the bobbin spool & it must be some extra hanging out. (not broken off flush with the spool)
