Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Singer 4166 has it's Red and Green lights reversed. When the pressure foot is disengaged, that is when the green light is on and the machine will work (this is wrong). When the pressure foot is down the light is RED which means the machine will NOT run. This is the opposite of how it was when we got the machine - somehow the positions got switched and therefore the machine cannot sew.

It sounds like reversed polarity and it is best to have it tested before you do any major damage

I have singer 4166 and it is all threaded and looks ready to but the red light won,t let me sew , what is wrong???


The red light usually signifies that the machine is not ready to sew because some function has not been turn off or has not been activated, the machine is not threaded correctly, or a myriad of other explanations.

Refer to the troubleshooting page (33) in the manual.
Singer 4166 Instruction Book Helpful Hints

Remove the thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct and the needle has been installed facing the correct direction.

Singer 4166 suddenly started sewing only in reverse even when forward mode checked


open the top of the sewing machine. Then press the button or lever that changes the forward reverse mode. You may find that something got stuck there where it should effect the machine part. May a drop of oil on that spot can help?

I have error C7 on singer one plus and it wont sew at all?


I was getting a C7 error on my Singer Heritage sewing machine every time I pushed the pressure foot. I decided to see if the reverse sewing button would work and it did. Then I pushed the pressure foot to sew again and it worked. Hope this helps someone else.

Singer futura ce-100 wont start


Do you still have the embroidery arm attached? If you do, the sewing function of the machine won't work.

Red light comes on when pressure foot is down


Is your bobin winder thing on top pushed to the left? If it is pushed to the right - the machine will not allow you to start sewing.

Beeping


I have had the same problem with my machine as well. have you tryed, keeping it hooked to your computer while sewing, even if you are not using your embroidery unit it still needs to be hooked up, that seems to have helped some with the beeping.
