Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I have a singer 6106 but no manual. When I press the foot the needle doesn't move although the outer wheel on the right hand side of the machine goes round. If I move the inner wheel on the right the needle moves up and down. Any ideas?

Go to http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals and type in your model number, then click "search" to locate the manual for this machine.

Sounds like the clutch is disengaged on your flywheel. Hold the outside of it and turn the inside bit away from you to reengage it.

    the inner wheel when turned toward you engages the spool winder on the top and therefore the needle does not move, hold the outer wheel and tighten the inner wheel away from you and then try the pedal again.

Move needle to the right


It doesn't look like you can change needle position on this machine. Even the zipper foot for this machine is made so the foot itself moves to the right or left rather than having to change the needle position.

Here's a copy of your manual.

Is the hand knob and the clutch the same thing? It won't wind the bobbin.


I don't know that machine specifically, but generally, there is a wheel or disk or something inside the hand-wheel that is the clutch. It needs to be disengaged to wind the bobbin. Here are some options: 1. if there is a wheel with serrations on the edge, turn it clockwise until the hand wheel moves freely. 2. if there is a button, press it until you hear a click and the wheel turns freely. or 3. if there is a disk with a depression on one side of it, press in on the depression as though it were a button.

BTW, don't you have a manual for it? If not, it's available for download at: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals/search
just put 132 into the search window and there it is.

The foot pedal wont move the needle


Ok, I am assuming that you have an old style machine where the hand hand wheel has the larger balance wheel on the outside and inner knob to release the drive to the needle and feed dogs. If that has been removed and not put back together properly it won't work.

There is a special locking washer inside those that have "fingers" pointing to the inside of the circle. They must be fit into the shaft correctly before the knob is returned into place and the little screw is tightened down.

This guy is a bit of a windbag but watch his video... you'll at least see the part I'm talking about. He shows the part at about 9:50 in the video.

I have a singer cxl electronic sewing machine and i have a problem with the needle either not moving or stopping when stitching the larger motifs or the zigzag stitch, somtimes the needle jut moves too...


The needle either not moving or stopping is a sign that the machine is jamming. Here's the answer for the question "My machine is jammed" from the FAQs on Singer's web site at http://www.singerco.com/support/faqs.html

A jammed machine is caused by thread being caught in the hook. Remove the upper thread and the bobbin case, turn the hand wheel towards you (counterclockwise) by hand and remove any thread in the bobbin case area. *Always turn the hand wheel towards you. Turning the hand wheel away from you (clockwise) can cause the machines timing to become unaligned and jam your machine. Also, always make sure the presser foot is in the down position before you start sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will jam your machine in the bobbin case.

Your description of the needle hitting the plate or foot is an indication that the machine's timing has become unaligned which can be caused as indicated above by turning the hand wheel away from you - the correct way is to *Always turn the hand wheel towards you.
