Model 6010 Won't Stop Sewing

Hello,
I was basting interfacing, touching nothing other than the fabric and the foot pedal, when all of the sudden, the machine kicked into overdrive, sewing faster than I have ever seen it sew. I took my foot off the pedal, and it kept sewing, so I unplugged the machine. Now every time I plug the machine in again, it starts sewing in overdrive without anything holding the pedal down. The oedal doesn't seem to be jammed up or anything.
-Thanks, Regan

Sounds like your foot control is faulty.
I can supply foot controls for 99% of sewing machines.

Feed dog low.Notpulling.Checked setting for sewing/darning, it was set right. Tried levers, moved the basting stitch nob to L and R and...the needle bar jumped up like 5 inches, into the head.


Difficult to diagnose without the make/model. However, if it has a basting stitch, that could be one problem. Some machines with a basting stitch have a problem with it sticking and preventing the machine from working properly. Also sounds like perhaps the feed dogs are dropped for darning and are not pulling the fabric through the machine--or the stitch length is set too close to zero so the stitches are sewing in one place or on top of each other. Make sure the machine does not have a darning foot installed--the darning foot is shorter than standard feet so there is space between it and the needleplate. Also, some machines have the ability to increase/decrease the presser foot pressure that will affect the way fabric is moved through the machine.

Recommendation is take it for service.

My machine starts sewing when I turn the off & on switch. It will not stop


Replace your foot pedal--it's stuck! You didn't mention the model of machine that you have, but you can usually replace it on eBay by doing a search on your model machine.

Machine is behaving as if not getting any power, but light is on. Press foot pedal and absolutely nothing happens


There is probably a bad connection in your foot pedal. Try moving it around with your hands at the contact points while pressing to activate. If it goes when you are shifting its position then it needs to be fixed or replaced.

My Viking 500 suddenly stopped running. The machine comes on and will sew and then won't start. Stitches are fine. The computer shows something wrong with the foot. The symbol for the buttonho


The foot pedal has nothing to do with this. You machine is telling you that you have the wrong presser foot on the machine for what you are trying to do.


Do you have your manual? Mine tells me what foot goes with which stitch.

How do I set for basting


Some compuerised machines will have a basting stitch programmed in, it may have a symbol like a dot then a long dash then another dot. This will give you a decent spaced basting stitch. On mechanical machines sometimes you can get a basting needle plate - you set up for the longest widest zigzag stitch and the tube on the plate makes one side of the zig not catch so you get a long straight stitch.

But if you are joining silky fine fabrics together, then needle and length of thread doubled is still the best way, takes a little longer but the fabrics won't creep and slip.

I have the singer 7442 and i cannot figure out how to get the baste stitch for gathering material on a flower girls dress. I've tried everything and there's nothing in the manual, can you help with this?...


Normally to gather fabric, you select the regular straight stitch, turn the stitch length up to maximum (4 or 5 usually), and stitch two rows of stitches, one at 10mm from edge and one at 20mm from edge.

Then gather by pulling the bobbin threads (underneath ones) from each end to gather the fabric. If doing lengths of more than 1 metre, then stop, leave long thread tails, and start a fresh length of gathering threads to avoid gathering long lengths of thread which might break on you.

If your machine has a basting stitch it might look like " .___.___.___" on the dial however, I've never been that happy with machine basting for things like attaching slippery fabric to underlining, I've always done it with needle and thread to keep the two layers matching and not stretching/slipping. For example, stitching a piece of chiffon to a underlayer of satin, even pinning carefully, these two fabrics will slip under the machine foot so I'd always do it by hand.

If you have masses of fabric to gather, sometimes what is quicker is doing a large wide zig zag over a length of perle cotton (heavier than thread) at the 15mm seam, don't let the needle pierce the cotton though. Then you can gather the fabric along the perle cotton.

Sewing machine instruction manual often assumes a knowledge of sewing techniques that you may not yet have. I have the Vogue Book of Sewing on my shelf and refer to it often. Or Singer do a good range of sewing books too, its worth investing in a good reference book.

I also love www.patternreview.com, this is such an awesome website for dressmakers/sewing enthusiasts and you will find loads of helpful tips here.

Hope this helps you a little.

Bobbin thread showing on top, automatic tension


It is possible the jam threw off the timing and this will need to be fixed by a sewing machine tech.

Try one more thing first. Lift the presser foot - this will open the tension control so the thread can properly seat into the control.

Re-thread the machine.

If this does not help, back to suggestion # 1.

Fabric won't feed forward


Do the feed dogs move up and down? If they dont the plastic gear underenth has probably broken you can take this to a singer dealer and have them replace the plastic gear with a nylon one which would last longer than that did

How to use a zipper foot please? I have lost instructions and have no idea which is the zipper foot or how to use it can you help please.


  1. Step 1 To prepare the fabric for a centered zipper application, use the standard presser foot to baste the opening of the fabric shut using 5/8 inch seam allowance. Press the seam allowance open. Place the zipper teeth side down on the seam allowance and pin the zipper to the seam allowance only.
  2. Step 2 Release the standard presser foot from your machine. There may be a button or lever behind the foot that you need to press. Put the standard foot in its holder or someplace where it won’t get lost.
  3. Step 3 Decide which side of the machine you want to attach the zipper foot to. Zipper feet are asymmetrical, with one side that’s wider than the other. You’ll want to put the narrow side toward the zipper teeth, and the wider side away from the zipper teeth.
  4. Step 4 Attach the zipper foot to the sewing machine. You may need to line up the bar on the zipper foot with the presser foot holder, then lower the presser foot by lowering the lever. Raise the presser foot and make sure the zipper foot is securely attached.
  5. Step 5 Place the prepared fabric with the pinned zipper in the sewing machine. Lower the needle into the zipper tape and the seam allowance only, then lower the zipper foot. Stitch the zipper tape to the seam allowance. To sew the other side of the zipper to the seam allowance, remove the zipper foot from the sewing machine and install it on the other side of the presser foot holder.
  6. Step 6 Topstitch the outside of the fabric to each side of the zipper tape, making sure that the zipper foot is on the appropriate side of the machine for each side. Remove the basting with a seam ripper.

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.
