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.

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 These early computer machines often had hand soldered components that are outdated.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 machine isn't making stitches. It's threaded correctly. I have been sewing leather recently and it's been acting up since then. I have cleaned the bobbin area. And have adjusted the tension...


Hello

Adjust the Stitch Length;

To make longer stitches, set the stitch length to a higher number. On many sewing machines, four is the longest possible stitch length and two is average.

To make shorter stitches, set the stitch length to a lower number. At a zero, the sewing machine may not actually make stitches, since the needle will go up and down in one place.

Cut a small scrap of fabric, preferably the same type you want to sew with.

Sew a few test stitches on the scrap. Examine the stitches to make sure they're the length you want.

Adjust the stitch length again as needed.

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.
