You can download White manuals from Singer. Just go to http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html and type W in the search box. The next page will be a list of White machines with manuals available. They may not have the exact model (as in my case), but there will be a similar one.

You have probably knocked out the timing on the machine. Most household machines, inexpensive machines especially will not sew denim without a fair amount of coaxing. Check the threading and do try on lighter fabrics first. to see if its just the denim.

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...


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.

Does it make a difference whether I use a 14 or 16 in my Kenmore sewing machine, basic 12 stitch. I had a 16 needle in it but after my friend cleaned it, in trying it, the needle hit the presser foot>...


Hi. You use different size needles for different fabrics and fabric weights. Size 16 needles are used for heavy fabric, like canvas, duck, or blue jeans. Size 14 needles are still on the heavy/thick fabric size. Size 10 needles are for very light-weight fabrics and size 12 needles are for medium-weight fabrics. Also, you need to pay attention to the type of fabric--if sewing on knits, you need ballpoint needles. If sewing on woven fabrics, you need sharps or universals. Universals are supposed to be for knits, too....but ballpoint needles are SO much better!
Use the right size and type of needle for your fabric, don't sew over any pins (they can bend or even break the needle), and make sure you don't pull or push the fabric while you're sewing on it. Let the feed dogs do the work of moving the fabric--you just gently guide it.
Hope this helps!

Machine does not feed properly. It sewed fine for


Hello,
Here are a few solutions to check.

* Check your fabric to make sure it isn't caught on something.

* Check your pressure foot to make sure it's screwed tightly in place.

* Adjust the pressure of your pressure foot as it may be too light or too heavy for your fabric.

* Check your feed dogs for lint. If your feed dogs are clogged with lint, they're not gripping your fabric properly. Remove your pressure foot and clean out any lint with an old toothbrush.

* Raise your feed dogs if your machine has this function. They may have been inadvertently lowered.

* Check your stitch length regulator, If its set at “0” or a very small number, try switching to a longer stitch length.

* Change your needle, it may be damaged.

* Check your needle plate and make sure it's securely in place.

* Use a “Jean-a-ma-jig” or a “Hump-jumper”. If you've been trying to sew over a bump of fabric, such as a thick jean hem, try using this tool (your local fabric store should carry it). It keeps your pressure foot level as you sew over the bump and gives your feed dogs something to grip.

I hope this helps

Hemming Levi's for husband. Using thick "jean" thread. Used 16 needle. Top stitch is perfect, bottom thread is anything but straight. I've re-threaded, cleaned the "hook", changed to a 14 needle. I...


Hi! Sounds like you're doing everything right to me, so let's see.

By not getting a straight stitch on the bottom, do you mean that the bobbin thread is loopy? If so, then most likely you have to reset the tension. Get a scrap of jeans material and practice on that....it would be great if you could use different color threads on top and in the bobbin, but that might not be practical if you don't have the jeans thread in different colors already.

You'll be adjusting the top tension, because even tho the top stitch looks perfect, it may not be tight enough to pull the bobbin thread up into the fabric where it belongs.

Sew a couple of inches on your scrap, then stop and check the bobbin thread. If it's loopy, you can also see the top thread on the underside. (Which is why using two colors is helpful.) With the pressure foot down, tightened the top tension just a bit. Sew a few more inches and check again. Keep on sewing, checking, and adjusting until you can't see any (or almost any) top threads on the bottom or bobbin threads on top.

Here are a couple of other ideas to check:

1. Make sure your bobbin is inserted correctly. If I happen to put one in backwards by mistake, the bobbin will make a lot of clanking noises.

2. Using your flywheel, lower the needle all the way through the stitch-making process to see if it's hitting anything along the way.

3. Oil your machine.

4. Make sure all the screws etc on your throat plate (also called needle plate) are tight. (I've had mine get loose and that will definitely throw a knock into the works!)

Check out these ideas and let me know if anything works, or if the problem is still there, ok?

Happy Sewing!
