Question about Singer Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Hi, my mum has a singer sewing machine and its about 30 years old. i was using yesterday to do a bit of sewing and i had left it while i tried on what i had made. i heard a bang/pop sound then saw the sewing machine was smoking. i left it for half an hour and plugged it back in to see if it went. lights on. touched the peddle to get the needle moving.......and it was. Can anyone tell me what they may know has happened. Whether i should use it or not or even if i have to go buy a new one? thanks

Did the light bulb blow out? Check that out and maybe it was dusty and overheated so that it blew. It probably wasn't too serious if it still works. It may not be a bad idea to have it serviced by a professional, you can get a manual on line for free at singerco.com The old machines are the workhorses and last usually forever, so do not be too quick to get rid of it.

Hi - I'm in the market for a sewing machine. I'm trying to decide between a Singer 4832C or a Necchi 3205FA. Which would u recommend? Thx.


I used to sell necchi's, I have used necchi's for over 30 years for sewing & quiting. I own a necchi model 4595 mechanical sewing machine, & a omega by necchi, model 6150, electronic, my husband does his quiting on it.I have made clothes & quits on both machines
I have never sold or tried a necchi 3205fa or a singer 4832c
all I ever had were old singers, which I have gotten rid of all them
make sure it has a operation manual with it.
make sure you can take it back if something is wrong with it.
happy sewing

JUST WANT TO KNOW HOW OLD MY SINGER IS I HAVE HAD IT FOR MANY YEARS THE MODEL NUMBER IS CAT-3-120


Hi! I collect old Singers but don't recognize that model number....could it be a part number, possibly?

For information on old sewing machines, check out The International Sewing Machine Collector's Society webpage at http://www.ismacs.net/home.html. They also have a section devoted to Singers but you can actually call the company 1-800-4-Singer (Have the serial number of your machine ready) (or for Singer Industrials, call 1.877.738.9869). You can also email Singer at TalkToUs@SingerCo.com.

Let me know what you find out about your machine, ok?

Happy Sewing!

Inserting needle on old singer machine


Hi Terry--

If your machine is 40-50 years old, it might be a Singer Featherweight portable. (If it is, you have one of the very best machines ever made!) On the Featherweights, the flat of the needle faces left (and the needle is threaded from right to left). The bobbin goes in a bobbin case; you'll see a small notch when you look down on the bobbin in the case. That's where the thread goes. I'll email you direct with more information.
