Singer Sewing Machines - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Since the needle fell into the needle plate, first remove the needle plate. You need to loosen and remove two screws. Then lift off the needle plate. I think you should be able to see the needle between the feed dogs. In the future, leave the old needle threaded before loosening the screw. Temporarily thread the needle and make sure that the thread tail is long. Now, insert your new needle and secure it. If you ended up with the thread wrapped around the needle, remove the thread from the needle and then correctly thread the needle. If the needle falls, you can use the thread to carefully pull the needle back up by holding the thread on both sides of the needle.

I hope this helps.

Singer CR 309-B Foot Speed Control Pedal
The Top Cover (where you push with your foot) is secured to the base with two white pins in the front.
They are simply pushed into sockets on the base and provide a pivot point for the pedal
I was able to insert a slightly larger Screw into the hollow of the pin, tighten it in and pull the pin.
I was then able to slide the cover to one side and off.

If that didn't work I was going to drill the pins out, using the same size drill bit. You can find a replacement pin at your local, small hardware store.

Inside are the moving parts and guts, where things can go wrong.

In my case I found black scorching from dirty contacts, preventing a good connection.
I cleaned with alcohol & Q-Tips, reassembled and am good to go now.

Quantum XL 1000 has been around a while but Singer has a reputation for making long-lived machines. I suggest you contact the manufacturer and tell them how dissatisfied you are and ask them what they can do to make you happy again.

It probably didn't occur to you - your sewing machine is as much computer as it is sewing machine and it should be treated as a computer - protected from wide temperature variations, from high humidity and condensation and from supply voltage surges and spikes, all of which can be damaging or even fatal to electronics.

The machine does receive many good reviews and lots of owners have been very happy with their machines - for up to 20 years.
Good luck!

Service Manuals are not normally available to the general public, although the odd one does end up online. nothing on your model though. This would be the Google search query that would find it.

I don't find your previous question....

What windows OS version are you trying to install the old futura software and what errors?

Singer Sewing... | Answered on Jun 08, 2020


I've done this, and it's a pain, but can be done. Let me also tell you that quite a few users have broken theirs and just used the machine without it, but others said that they had to replace theirs. First of all, the wire guide is held UNDERNEATH the needle clamp, and what you have to do is insert them back in one piece. That is, remove the clamp, insert the end of the guide, then push them together on the shaft as one unit. The end of the thread guide sticks up over the top of the clamp in the back. There is a very tiny screw there that's supposed to hold it, but most machines are produced without the end going underneath that screw--they just let the needle clamp hold it. That screw is VERY tiny and VERY difficult to access, and will come out completely after only a few turns. Worse yet, it serves as a "stop" for the end of your needle, so if you lose it, you'll have to use something like a toothpick to "stop" the end of the needle until you can replace it. ASK ME HOW I KNOW! It is easier to deal with if you put the machine on its side when you do this.

No, dont go and buy another machine. This is a great value for money machine.

Your problem is most certainly with the buttonhole switch. Firstly: Look if the buttonhole lever, left back of machine, is push up in position. Pull it down and push it up to the top again. This should sove your problem right away.The beeping sound is a warning message. If the problem persist, do the following procedure:

Remove the light cover, left of the machine, loosen back screw and remove left hand screw completely. Check for a small black electric switch, follow the brown and green elecrtic wire, just back of the light. If you push the BH lever up and down the switch finger should also move up and down. If it stays down, the machine will not work and give a beeping sound. If the switch finger is stuck, push it up with the BH in top position. Hope this will help you
