Having problems with your Vacuums ?

My Singer Sewing machine (model 6215) is now only sewing in reverse. After pressing the backstitch button, the button seemed to stick in the backstitch position. I was finally able to pull the button out but my machine continues to only stitch backwards. What do I do now?

Answers :

It's stuck inside. Open it up so you can see inside the bottom, look for the feed dog mechanism and you'll find where length of step is varied, this is where the reversing takes place too. Tapping gently and oiling will free it up.

Borrowed Brother XR7700 Sewing Machine 1st: Sewed one inch OK; moved fabric and it stopped sewing, motor made thudding noise. When push-button (NOT pedal) is used, gives error E6, consistent with motor noise. 2d: In order to check threading had to manually PULL bobbin case toward me or it was UNDER needle plate. Cleaned a fair amount of dust out. Reinstalled bobbin, etc., per manual, rethreaded. 3rd: Will sew 2-3 stitches, then packs up again just like in 1st instance above. Have st

Brother XR 33 sewing machine: it does not feed fabric thur anymore unless I 'pull' it thru as I sew. This makes for a wavy final look and it sucks to pull the fabric that way. How can I fix the dog feed so that it will smoothly drive the fabric thru like it used to do. Thank you so much

My Singer Izek sewing machine starts and stops and wont sew continuously. When I push down the pedal it sews about 2 inches then stops and light starts flashing, I have to let off of the pedal and push it again, over and over. It did this once before for awhile and then just started sewing right for awhile and now its started it again. I've checked everything.

If it's not the thread and not the pedal then it's definitely a power problem. You need to replace the power cable and then check again the functionality. ... Vacuums

I bought this machine about 3 years ago but hadn't used it due to illness. Now when I tried to sew with the Tuff Sew ,the threads continually break. If I can make about a 3 inch line of staight stitches without the top thread breaking,I consider myself fortunate The direction in the manual are extremely poor. I had to finish my project with my very old Bernina. I regret buying the Tuff Sew straight stitch. JLWebb

There was no category for sewing machines....so I picked small appliance. When I depress the foot control E1 flashes on the LCD screen. I've followed the steps in the manual but it continues to flash E1. The machine will not operate. This is a brand new machine. I've used it only 3-4 times in the last 2-3 years. It worked perfectly until now.

NO POWER My Dyson DCO4 Absolute (purple&lime) won't' switch on. I've checked the plug fuse, wall socket and also filters and hoses on machine all seem fine so think the problem is with the on/off button (maybe loose wire or something) but how do i get to it, is there a special way to remove the green on/off button in order to check the connection? Thankyou in advance for the help i am sure you will be able to provide.

The problem is almost certainly a fatigue break in the flex. These usually happen where the flex enters the handle through the rubber sleeve near the on off switch. You will need to cut about four inches off the wire and reconnect it to the switch. ... Vacuums

I bought a Tacsew T8700 High Speed Stright Stitch and I should have paid more attention to the 'High Speed'! The motor that came with this industrial machine is a Tacsew Clutch Motor model: RM1878-1H. It is way too fast when starting out and usually breaks the thread. The local company I bought it from told me there was not a user manual for the machine or the motor :P.
