Question about Sewing Machines
Have a Singer Touch Tronic 2001 Sewing Machine which has a touch board to pick stitches, decorative stitches, width, length, reverse. The board lights up and I can pick the stitches - but the machine will only straight stitch. No matter what stitch I pick - reverse, zigzag, decorative, wider width, wider length, etc. the machine will only stitch the straight stitch in the same length, width. Have you any suggestions. My feeling is the computer board has a problem.
Any help,advice is much appreciated.
I had a similar problem a couple of years ago. I finally figured out that I had the straight stitch needle plate (the one with the single hole), rather than the zig zag needle plate (the one with the curved hole). When I changed plates, it worked fine.

I have the Singer Touch Tronic 2001. I bought it used for $50. It has the manual and all the parts. However, the manual refers to lifting the top console to access the stitch width selector dial and to change the pattern selector discs. I cannot seem to lift this console up even the manual says that it is hinged for easy access to these parts. Can anyone describe how to lift the console up? Or send a picture or video of this process?

this machine recognizes the stitch plate with a mall switch.
When you have on of the straight stitch Plates ie: Straight Stitch or Chain Stitch Plate on the Machine it only works straight stitch.
That means your machine won't ever damage the needle because of using the wrong stitch plate.
When the small switch is defective or perhaps a cable connection isn't plugged this will cause the same.
So, check whether you use the right stitch plate - the one for universal use.
The stitch plate must have a little hole for the little pin which you can see in the rear left below the stitch plate.
If your stitch plate is wrong you can try the machine without thread and stitch plate.
When machine does her zigzag then, your stitchplate is wrong.
When she doesn't work - check the wiring from this switch.
The 2001 was really expensive when new - be carefull and look for a good repair-shop.

I have had my Singer Touch Tronic machine for 27 yrs., but I am parting with it now. I've just purchased a new machine and am passing this old one to a friend for her daugher. I remember having the same problem you described. In my manual I noted trouble shooting, and here are some things you can try:
1) Check to make sure the "twin needle" isn't set "on". If it is, push it again to turn it off. If that doesn't solve your problem, then try this:
2) Take the throat plate off. There is a little nylon button under the throat plate in the upper left-hand corner. Pursh it down and the machine should "beep". This should re-set the machine so that all of your decorative stitches will work. You should clean this area out well as lint can cause this problem to occur.
Hope this helps!

BarbieJ, I also have a Singer 2001. It developed problems and the technician indicated that a the machine was worth al lot and 2. the if the machine's electronic touch board wasn't functioning it would cost up to $500.00 to replace. If you sew a lot and have the money I would look at a Singer 8763 or 74631. If my area they can be purchased for from $199.99 to $299.00 + tax. According to the salesperson I spoke with they have a 25 year warranty and appear to do just about everything the 2001 model does. I have also found 2001's on the Internet for as little as $150.00 including the cabinet.
Sorry this isn't a solution just information.
