Question about Singer Featherweight 132Q Mechanical Sewing Machine

2 Answers

My Singer 123q Featherweight just jammed on me in the middle of a seam. It was working fine, then all of a sudden, the needle stopped. The manual knob seems locked, and if I force it, I can get it moving very slowly, but it won't sew. I have pulled out all the threading and rethreaded it, and dismantled and cleaned the bobbin case. When I put it all together, it runs for a few stitches, then jams again. I can't afford to replace it - it is only a few years old. By the way, I am sewing on sheer fabric doubled over. It isn't thick and usually sews very well. Thank you for nay help, Margo Williamson

I have the same problem with my 132Q. My machine is brand new and I have not been able to sew a thing. I have even taken it to the sewing machine doctor in our area, she sat down at the machine and had not problem. I know that the knob on the left is a way of unlocking it but I have turned that knob counterclock wise and it still will not sew. What is the problem ????

Bought a featherlite 221 will not pick up bobbin thread have no manaul so am i threading it correctly or putting in needle wrong the machine is like new


I see Singer Featherweight Featherlite manuals, not a Featherlite as a stand-alone model name. For the Featherweight 221 manual try here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html and enter the model 221. Alternative site: http://www.singer-featherweight.com/ with the direct link to the manual here: http://www.singer-featherweight.com/sitetwopages/singfea.pdf .

I hope this helps.

My singer touch & sew suddenly didn't stop


There might be something jamming the petal open so it won't slow or stop when you put your foot on it.. I would try that, get some canned air and blow it out and see if it helps.

My thread often becomes unthreaded from the part that raises and lowers the needle causing the thread and fabric to jam up


Your needle should not come unthreaded in the middle of sewing.. if it does, it is because the thread breaks. this can be a simple tension problem or brittle thread.

if you are talking about at the beginning of sewing that the needle comes unthreaded, then you should just pull out 6-8 inches of thread through the needle before putting your fabric under and begin sewing.

i hop that helps.
