Question about Singer Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I bought a 1986 singer 6268 sewing machine. It has excellent straight stitching, runs quiet and has all parts to it for embroidery. But when I try to do any stitching other than straight stitching, (ie; zig zag etc) it skips stitches. Do you know what would cause this?

SINGER XL1000 SEWING MACHINE


Hi Peggy,

 

I know this want be easy for you.  I need any kind of part number you can get off the LCD screen.  Is it a display and you type the different stitch stuff into a keypad?  Or , is the LCD a touch screen that you touch the screen to select a stitch?  I do not have one of these Sewing machines, but I do Electronics repair. Is your Screen Black and not displaying anything?  I believe we can work through this and get you a repair solution. The back light may have gone out on the screen only. Please reply with more info, so that we can get you a solid solution.  By the way, Singer really does not make those anymore.  They are making a more modern Screen at this time. Usually after 5 years, the manufacturers stop making parts for a model. Good news though, we can work on repairing the one you have. Go to Ebay and see if we can buy a XL1000, or other venue to rob the parts from.

I was given a 1986 Singer Sew Machine Model No. 6268. The electronic embroidery unit is missing. Where can I buy one?


It may be difficult to find an embroidery unit for this 1968 machine as they did not make one.

WHAT STITCH DO I USE TO DO EMBROIDERY ON MY SINGER


You want to do free hand embroidery, right? I think it's better to learn by seeing sometimes. Low tenstion, straight or zig zag any width. Here is a decent Video from Youtube by a free hand embroiderer.

Singer 6268 won't work


since your having such problems with the machine, my suggestion would be to take it to a repair shop & let them look at it.
for a computerized part of a machine it depend on the name & model number. & if a generic part will fit on the machine.
the question is what would the cost of repairing the machine--viruses a new sewing machine, good luck with your decision

Removing cartridge


The machine must be off before you insert or remove the cartridge, otherwise you can damage the machine or the cartridge. Once the power is off, simply grasp the cartridge firmly and pull it straight up.

Remember also to remove the plasitc insert that came with the cartridge from the face of the machine, so that you don't get confused about which stitch you are selecting!

Top thread wrapping around hook under needle plate then jamming


Could be the needle is the incorrect size or the thread is not compatible with the embroidery or both. :)

Dear Nancy,
If you do not get any error message, and the proble does not depends on your procedure ( eg, you left straight stiches plate mounted, or check that is not set width to zero for the straight stitch etc. ) Then a serviceman need to reset the machine from a jumper on mainboard, or reinstalling firmware image.
If you are not in a hurry, you can also try posting the question on this website.
If is not a simple solution problem, and the machine is new , the best thing to do is calling service, as suggested by the Singer manual.

Regards
