Question about White Sewing SM2000 Sewing Machine

1 Answer

I saw a white sm2000 in a thrift shop. it was in decent condition and the needle moved smoothly. I was wondering if this machine would be worth getting. I have reservations because of all the negative views on "newer" plastic sewing machines. I would appreciate any iinput you could give me. Thank you

There's nothing wrong with the newer plastic sewing machines. Most of them are plastic now and not as heavy as the old metal ones. You said that the needle moved smoothly but what you need to know is if the needle thread picks up the bobbin thread. If you don't know how to thread the machine either check the manual or ask someone in the shop to thread it. If anyone there sews, they will know how to thread it. If the machine makes a stitch go ahead and get it. It the bobbin thread is not picked up by the needle thread IT WON'T STITCH and then you'll know that the timing is off. That's a repair job and will be way more than what you paid in the thrift shop.

A couple of things to check -

Needle won't move with move on but move free with motor off


You are describing a Bernina computer machine? With the machine on, the needle cannot be moved laterally because the energized step motor is holding the needle center position, With the machine in the off condition, the needle can be moved which is a normal condition. Your concern did not describe a problem but rather a condition that is totally normal. Please be more specific. SewTechnical Home ">

Top thread will not work ive tryed changing needles is there a special needle to use


the needle used depends on the fabric being sewed. the needle must move thru the needles eye smoothly.
make sure the machine is threaded correctly, using every thread guide
make sure also the bobbin is wound correctly and that the bobbin is inserted into the bobbin case correctly, if the bobbin is turned the wrong way the machine wil not sew
here is a link for a free manual, if you don't have one

Skipped stitches
1. The needle is not inserted correctly
Remove needle & reinsert needle( flat side towards the back of machine)
2. The needle is damaged
replace with new needle
3. The wrong size needle is being used
Choose a needle to suit the thread & fabric
4. The foot not attached correctly
Check & attach correctly

adjust the top tension one number or letter higher when the stitches
on the bottom are loopy, until the stitches become normal
also change the needle--flat side to the back side of the machine

check with singer website for a manual--some times they have free
pdf downloads

Go to the singer website

Click on customer support--there will be a drop down menu

Choose instruction manual

In the box type the model number( example 2010)
Click search


having a machine serviced once a year is a good idea & makes the machine last longer
and the sewing machine shop will tell you if they can get parts for the machine & if the machine is worth the money to fix it.

I myself have 2 sewing machines, when one is being serviced then I have the other one to use, so I'm not with out a sewing machine when I need one.
good luck

White 2037 Bobbin thread not spinning and noticed the needle hitting bottom of bobbin casing


it's sounds like the machine could be out of time & the machine needs to be checked at a sewing machine shop, to find out for sure.

My Kenmore stopped making stitches. I changed the needle recently to a Singer Universal regular point needles 100/16, but I dont believe that is different than what was in there before. I have a Model...


Why are you using #16 needle, that is very heavy duty? Did your machine pick up the bobbin thread correctly? Try a different needle, #11, (inserted facing away from you) is usually good. Make sure that you have decent thread and that it is the same weight top and bottom. Now rethread, with the presser foot up and when you have that done, with the presser foot stiil up, pull top & bottom thread, it should feed smoothly, now with the presser foot down, pull the thread, it should barely move. This usually seats the thread in the tension discs. Put your top tension at 3 and see if that makes a difference.

My machine seized up. the serviceman oiled it and it ran smoothly at the shop. I was using another machine and didn't use it right away when I got it home. That was several months ago. Today I get it...


It's very important that the needle is inserted with the flat side of its shank facing to the back. If that is correct, perhaps the timing of the hook and needle was changed when the machine seized up. Take off the needle plate and remove the bobbin case. With the handwheel moving in the sewing direction, when the needle has reached its lowest point and has moved up 2.5 millimeters the point of the hook should be directly behind the needle. If not, take it to your repair person.
