Touch Tronic 2001 singer Brand

The stitch length will not lengthen beyond #7 and part of the display on the numbers wont show up. Are these machines repairable? It's 30 years old. Yikes.

    Thank you very much and that's exactly what I thought. I think it may be best for me to purchase a new machine.

Hi, I have this same machine (I have 2 actually) and I LOVE this machine. There is a reset button underneath the machine - press that and chances are everything will work like normal again. And yes, these machines are repairable. I needed new gears on mine in January - it cost around $120 but it was well worth it. This machine will run forever. I looked at buying a new one and they are cheap plastic and in my opinion not worth it. Good luck!

    I also have one , but have problems with it , two sewing repair people have worked on it. It breaks of the thread while i am sewing and the bobbin thread tangles up, i have to keep stopping and rethreading it and untangling the bobbin thread. The second repair person said it doen't have the motor mount i paid the first guy for, It was over a year so i didn't call him on it , but i didn't buy the newer machine he wanted to sell me either , plus i don't recommend him to others who want their machine fix either.

Looking for manufacture date/place for singer touch tronic 2010 serial number A3195D122

If you contact Singer, they may be able to provide you with that information.


"I have a Singer Touch Tronic 2010. Though not a 2001, this machine was purchased for me by DH for Christmas in 1983. It is now 28 years old and sews like it did when new. I have had this machine serviced three times in all those years and not because anything needed repair, just to have it properly cleaned/oiled. It probably has several million miles on it. Back then I made a new outfit for work every week. I knew it should have been serviced more than that as I used it constantly. At one time, it was my only machine for eight years and since I sewed constantly, I couldn't bear to be without it for any length of time. Now that I am older and wiser (LOL) and have five sewing/embroidery machines including this one, I'm more attentive to the machines getting serviced on a regular basis. This machine aside from having sentimental value since DH purchased it, is still my favorite for regular sewing. It makes a great single chain stitch by placing an attachment in the bobbin that my newer and much more expensive machines don't/can't do. It is now at our week-end home and I smile every time I sew on it.

I agree with the advice to go ahead and use it and see how it performs, but not to put too much money into any repairs if it should need them.

Singer 4530- stitch length adjustment not working. How do I fix?

Since you indicated the machine has been cleaned and lubed, that is probably not the problem unless the stitch length lever is sticky or the feed dogs are hanging up somewhere. Suggest perhaps directing heated air from a handheld hair dryer into the internal mechanics (focus on the stitch selector lever and the feed dog mechanics) and see if that loosens anything.

Hi. I purchased a Singer Touch tronic 2010 at a thrift store 2 weeks ago. It sewed beautifully until today. While putting my fabric under the pressed foot, a number if stitch selector lights on the front...

Sorry you are having a problem All machines work fine until they break. These early computer machines often had hand soldered components that are outdated. Sadly those are not supported by the manufacturer any more and most sewing technicians would advise you replace it with the problems you described.

The straight stitches can be shortened and lengthened utilizing the length selector. If you are attempting to do this with zigzag the stitch will be the same distance but the fabric will appear as if the material hardly moves. This will be changed by using a wide stitch. If you can't truly get a different stitch length on the straight stitch you may need the feed dog adjusted by a pro so that it will give you a longer stitch.

Bobbin stitch is loopy

4 is the "middle of the road" tension number, but it depends on the thickness of your fabric.

Singer Touch Tronic 2001 Sewing Machine Stuck on Sewing Straight Stitch Only

I had a similar problem a couple of years ago. I finally figured out that I had the straight stitch needle plate (the one with the single hole), rather than the zig zag needle plate (the one with the curved hole). When I changed plates, it worked fine.
