Singer won't stitch if the pc board is shot. My mom had one of these and tried to have it repaired at a Singer dealer, but they couldn't do it cost effectively and gave it back to us with a service charge of $45.

They were good machines in their day, but unfortunately, the boards were not made to last that long.

The new Singer machines are made in China, we were told. And, weren't as good as the Husqvarnas and other brands.

My sewing machine will not stich. i have tryed everything i can find on this problem but nothings working


Make sure nothing has either gotten stuck/caught/jammed somewhere inside it. Insure that the thread stays attached to the needle. Or the material you are trying to sew/stitch may be too thick.

Singer 201K Hand Crank Sewing Machine - I have threaded machine correctly, but when stiching the threads are not interlintking i.e. stiches are not forming and thread from reel and bobbin remain loose. ...


Hi Wendy. No stitches like this is likely one of two things. The needle isn't fully inserted into the needle bar. Or it's out of time.

Luckily most singers of that era are similar. And there is lots of info on how to time them online.

When iam stiching the bobbin thread is not interlocking with the pool thread ,the straight stich is not stiching properly


Do you have thread in your bobbin?
Is your needle fully inserted in the needle bar?
Is it the right needle for the machine?
Is your needle damaged, bent or dull?

Singer TT600A needle is moving, but stiches are unformed. I've tried everything. I've already changed the tension and did everything in the manual repeatedly.


Make sure the needle is installed with the flat side of the needle shaft to the back of the machine.

A sewing machine should always be threaded with the presser foot up. This opens the tension control so the thread can "seat" into the control.

When a sewing machine is threaded with the presser foot down, the tension control does not open to properly accept the thread.

If the machine is already threaded, lift the presser foot and pull about 6" of thread through the needle.

Last resort: the machine needs to be taken in for service. Sometimes the stitch is not forming because the timing needs to be adjusted.

Upper thread breaking on singer machine


Check that your bobbin thread is not wound too tightly or too loose. Also adjust your tension down a click at a time until it stops breaking, testing on scrap fabric. Singer provided manuals online. Look it up here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html

The top needle unthreads after just a few stiches. I have a Singer 2950 and am new to sewing.


Are you saying that the thread is breaking?

CAUSES of upper thread breaking

needle is in backwards
improperly threaded
tension to tight
needle bent or blunt
thread to coarse for size of needle
needle too long for machine
burr on needle
tension discs worn so that thread works in grove
neele too fine for size of thread and fabric
lint or dirt around bobbin case holder
irregular sewing speed
AND THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS:
threads not properly pulled back under pressure foot when starting to sew
This means, Have enough of the upper and lower thread pulled to the back and hold for the first 2-3 stiches,

Do this every time and it will become second nature and you will do it automatically

Does not make a stich


you may find that the needle is bent. or maybe the machine needs a cleaning I use canned air for this it blows the lint out so nicely . if this is a new machine then take it back to where you bought it and see what they can do.
