Singer sewing machine

I have a Touch and Sew Model #648 and the feed dog broke. I purchased a new one but can seem to get the two little screws out. Is there something I can do to get them out?

First try leaving a few drops of penetrant (PB Blaster or WD-40)on each screw letting it soak in overnight. Then using as short of a screwdriver ,with the best fit to the screw, as you can fit under there put it in the screw head, push down hard and turn the screwdriver with a pliers. This should break them loose.

How do you remove the hand wheel on a singer model #648 sewing machine


Sounds like you might have a broken gear in the transmission. Since the Touch and Sew series (aka Touch and Swear, Sew and Throw, etc.) are so touchy about adjustments, I'd probably take this one to a good sewing machine mechanic and let him/her do the heavy lifting on this.

Singer Touch and Sew Model 648 will not zigzag


There is an arm in the head that does the zig zag movement and attaches to the needle bar with a pin. If that isn't connected zig zag won't work at all.

Mygolden singer touch and sew wont feed the material


Does the feed dogs move at all?
If not soulds like a busted gear. Take the botom panel off and inspect the gears should be able to get some from a sewing dealer and replace them if your mechanical. watch a youtub video on timing a sewing machine and you will do great.
hope this helps

I have a Singer Stylist 513 & I cannot get the feed dogs raised.


The model 513 Singer has two gears which operate the feeding mechanism. If one of these gears is broken, the machine will run except the feed dogs will not move. This is a very common problem with this model.

Call Singer at 1-800-4singer and they will help you. I think a piece of the needle may be stuck in your feed dog

Singer model ce100 does not sew with pedal


Check your feed dogs. On the front, left at the bottom is a manaul switch. If you push it to the right it drops the feed dogs, for embroidery and when you push it left it lift the feed dogs. Just remember to turn the handwheel towards you after switching it to the left, until you hear a clicking sound and the feed dogs engage. Hope this solves your problem.
