The belt should be the same size as the old belt . It should only be tight enough to be able to move the treadle freely. It's a case of reajustment. :-)

you probably have a loose connection or a small hole in the hose to the air foot

Singer Sewing... | Answered on Jul 14, 2019


This normally happens if you were maybe not using the right needle for the material you were sewing or your bottom or top tension was too loose. It will stitch fine for a while but then the bottom cotton gets so knotted up with the one from the needle, it can a totally entangled itself around the bobbin causing the top needle to stop moving. The only way to get this knot unentangled is with patience and slow but not forcefull turning of the wheel. You need to lift the pressure foot up and switch power off. Gently tuck and pull at the material under the needle whilst slowly turning the wheel back and forth. If this fails unscrew the needle from the top so it's free and lying loose on the material and continue the gentle tucking and turning of the wheel. After a while the tension will loosen enough for you to get able to remove the bobbin, cut the thread and gently pull that thread together with the material and needle still attached to it, through the top. I hope this will help.

You may be right about the threading, but there are other reasons. First, OLD thread, it will be knotted and will break. Needle old/bent/blunt. Incorrect tension , and needle size and correct thread for the material sewn. The same thread in bobbin and top thread must be the same. Tangled threads, fluff under feed plate,or in bobbin section. Hope you can work this out. :-)

gears not engaging. It should have a peddle for the foot from what I remember. Bad switch
Just a guess to be honest because both hands should be needed to move the cloths

Many Singer sewing machine models can be found from the serial number lists here: http://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_machine_company/serial-numbers/singer-sewing-machine-serial-number-database.html . AE249154 is a model 15 assigned the serial number in September 10, 1936. G1019270 is a model 27 assigned the serial number January 16, 1911. It can take over a year or two for the machine to move through the factory and reach the dealer after being assigned a serial number.

I hope this helps.

Have you taken out the bobbin plate where the screws are and clean inside. I have had the same problem and cleaned out all the thread and it worked fine.
