Problem when powered on it beeps and won't sew you singer won't sew and it beeps when powered on singer quantum 9910


Try the Troubleshooting section of your manual:

Singer 9920 Instruction Manual Helpful Hints

Check that the machine is not set to wind a bobbin.
Remove all the thread and rethread from the beginning.

2001 Touch Tronic. Worked fine yesterday. Today, why can't I wind a bobbin?


If you haven't cleaned and oiled your machine recently, you might start there. Consult your owner's manual, use ONLY fresh, good quality sewing machine oil, and apply 1-2 drops of oil each spot specified in the manual.

If the machine bobbin winder is still not working, does it still sew? If so, you probably have two choices:

1) Take it in for service
2) Buy a standalone bobbin winder (~$30) from JoAnn's, Hancocks, or Amazon.com

If the machine does not sew, take it for service.

Singer 2263 will not sew because bobbin thread winds back around the bobbin


have you tried changing the needle?
rethread the machine top & bobbin
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case & also wound correctly

I sewed a few days ago, put my singer machine away and today when I was ready to sew, it will sew backward, but the needle won't go down into the bobbin to sew forward.


Try the old hair dryer trick, take off the cover, pay attention where the screws go, put some gloves on, then work the reverse lever, button or whatever you have on your machine and your stitch length dial. It may have old grease or oil that needs to soften. Now put your machine back together. Clean and Oil your machine as per your manual. Try rethreading and a new needle before you sew. If you don't have your manual, go to www.singerco.com and under customer support and download one for free. Good luck. I hope that I have helped you, my advice is free.

The needle on my sewing machine will not move up and down, the handwheel is a little tight and the bobbin winder wont move, how do I fix this?


You are jammed up with thread or material. Clean it out, rethread, wind a new bobbin. Oil your machine and put in a new needle. When you sew, hold the thread ends when you first start out sewing for about 4-5 stitches. Read your manual, watch your dvd on instructions

Singer touch n sew 750 winding bobbins


You can find Singer bobbin winding instructions at http://www.singerco.com/resources/bobbin_wind.html.
"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

Singer 7442 will not sew


Had the same problem as mommyb2 - it was the bobbin spindel was in the wrong position. Push bobbin spindel to the left and it works for sewing.
Have the same problem winding my first bobbin - pushed spindel to the right to engage bobbin fuction and the machine locks up and wont wind the bobbin. Irig did you bring it in for repair? I'm thinking its broke - which **** as mine is a brand new machine
