Question about White Sewing 1409 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

The reverse won't work. Push the button and it just keeps going forward. When filling bobbin the needle shaft still goes up and down even when the dial has been unengaged as directed

Ok, you have a couple things going on here. You need to remove the top cover of your machine. Let's address the reverse first, look down into the top of your machine and press the reverse button. There should be some action there. If not your button is dirty and needs to be cleaned. If there is movement check for a small set screw attached to the lever on the knob. This may need adjustment.

On the handwheel, you need to take the smaller wheel off and pull the handwheel as far off the machine as you can without damaging the belt.
Clean the area where the handwheel goes over the shaft with canned air - make sure you clean all the way around.

That should do it.

How to fix sewing reverse ?


It may be stuck in "Butonhole". Pull the shaft for buttonhole (by the needle) all the way down, then push the lower end of the shaft away from you firmly.

Thread becomes jammed in reverse


Reverse can be tricky if the machine is not timed correctly. So try this. after you've stitched forward for a while, use the hand wheel to bring the needle all the way down into the fabric and let it come part way up. Then push your back button and take your back stitches. If that works for you then you know the machine should be checked for proper timing.

The first time I used my singer 6199 it worked for a few minutes then stopped. It keeps beeping at me. any ideas?


the only thing I can suggest is
change the needle
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of your sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the needle clamp screw to remove the old needle.
Place the new needle in the needle clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back, (round needle, the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft).
Push the needle all the way up as far as it will go. Then tighten the needle clamp screw.
check the bobbin to see that it's wound correctly & inserted
correctly into the bobbin case
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads
do you have a manual for the machine?

Remove thread. Remove the needle plate. Turn hand wheel toward you. Rethread machine. Make sure presser foot in up position when you thread needle. Make sure needle all way up in shaft, flat side back and more rounded side facing you Turn hand wheel toward you again and observe the following: As needle comes down, make sure the needle's eye makes pass by the scarf of the needle.

Brother xl-2600 As I am sewing ( not thick material) the thread keeps breaking, also over seams it is not sewing through. Then, when my bobbin ran out, went to change it and when pulling the needle down...


try changing the top thread tension to 3 or 4

also rethread the machine just in case the thread is hung up somewhere

take the bobbin out & put the bobbin in reverse of what you did before

you said you changed the needle, check to make sure it in correctly,, the flat side goes to the back of the machine, push it all the way up before tightening the screw

I just purchased a singer cg-550/500 and after threading the machine and inserting the filled bobbin, I was unable to bring up the bobbin thread with the needle. I followed the instructions carefully but...


if im not mistaken, the bobbin when you place it in the bottom, you have to thread it is as well to the part where the needle comes down and collects and goes back up. please re-look at instructions for placement of bobbin

How do you thread a singer 9836c machine


I have this machine and the manual but it will be difficult to explain without the diagram. Here are the instructions without the diagram ... I'm assuming that you know some parts of the machine i.e. the foot etc

NB. thread the bobbin FIRST - points number 8 onwards....

1. Raise take-up lever to highest position on machine by turning the hand wheel towards you and make sure the presser foot is raised.
2. Place spool of thread on the spool pin at the back making sure spool cap is firmly in place to keep it on.
3. Take thread and place through the thread guide (plastic bit same side as spool pin) a under and over action. Across from this guide is a small metal wheel on top of another loop pin on the top at the front of the machine. Take the thread and put through the loop pin. 9Thread should come out on top of the pin towards you).
4. On the front of the arm is a tension wheel numbered between 0 - 8. The thread should then be placed down the front of the arm, underneath the tension wheel (behind the body part of the arm not under the wheel) and lifted up to catch the tension spring unseen behind the wheel. It should then be threaded through the eye of the metal piece (that moves as the needle goes up and down).
5. The thread should then be passed down the gap in the body work and down through the middle of the metal spiral loop in the front near the needle.
6. The thread should continue down through the horizontal clip just above the needle.
7. The needle should be place with the flat part at the back and held firmly with the screw. The eye of the needle will face you. The thread should then be threaded through the front and out the back and under the foot leaving a six inch tail.

Your thread should now come off the spool move towards the left through the plastic guide, across the top of the machine at right angles, through the metal loop; down the front of the machine (you can't see the thread as it sits behind the body) and reappears through the metal arm hole that goes up and down with the needle. It should then come down through the metal spiral and behind the clip above the needle, through the eye of the needle and away from you under the foot.

8. The bobbin needs to be wound. The bobbins are particualr to each make of machine. So only singer bobbins can be used on Singer machines. The bobbin winder is the metal pin on the right on the top of the machine.
9. To wind the bobbin. Place the bobbin over the metal pin nad push firmly down. It is located on the top on the right hand side.
10. Place thread on the spool pin as before and thread the cotton through the plastic thread guide.
11. Take the thread as before but rather than going through the metal clip on the top at the front, place it anti clockwise partly round the metal wheel on top of the metal clip (don't go all the way around) and across to the right where the bobbin has been placed.
12. The thread should be wound clockwise as many times as required not to slip off when the thread is automatically wound with the electic foot peddle.
13. Push the bobobin manually to the right along the groove in the body and press the electric foot peddle. Bobbin should wind moving the thread up and down (not necessarly evenly) and filling the bobbin. Fill about 80%. Leave a six inch tail.
14 Pull the plate forward under the needle. Place bobbin in its slot. The thread should be in a clockwise direction and when the bobbin is placed catch the thread under the groove found on the left at the top of the bobbin case. Close the plate with the thread coming out above in the slot under the needle.
15 Manually turn the hand wheel a couple of times until you can see the bobbin thread making a loop with the stitch thread and pull through.
16 Both threads should be under the foot and away from you.
17 Tension normally is around 5 -6 on the tension wheel with standard cotton and polyester cotton thread. To tighten the tension the number should increment upwards.

Machine is a cracker and according to my local shop never goes wrong. I have had mine since 1999 and that's true.

Hope this helps.... I would send you the manual but I'm not sure how you keep email addresses private.

Good luck.
