20 Most Recent Singer 1525 Mechanical Sewing Machine Questions & Answers


Do you have a setting for design stitches? There should be a button to take the machine to a straight stitch. Look at your manual or instructions to see how to set it to straight stitching. If this doesn't work, look up on the website on your machine and see what the company thinks about it. Sometimes the mechanism is malfunctioning and the will send you a new machine.

Go to the Singer site, singerco.com, select instruction manuals, enter your model number, and you can download it free.

Squeaking or popping sounds could be a blunt needle so make sure you change it regularly, 4-6 hours sewing time is rule of thumb.

To find where to oil this machine download the manual from http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html, just type in your model number into the search field and click 'Search', most of the manuals are there as a downloadable pdf file.

The manual will show oiling points for your machine. Use sewing machine (clear) oil only, a little drop only but oil and clean regularly to get the best performance. Brush out any lint and dust first (don't use compressed air to blow a machine out, much better to brush out carefully with a little brush and remove the lint from the machine).

You can also put a drop of oil onto a piece of waste fabric then rub this up and down the needle bar (the metal part that goes up and down holding the needle) to keep this clean and lubricated.

try visiting www.sewing.about.com for general machine use, threading diagrams and help.

Or borrow a general "how to use a sewing machine" book from your library.

Also buying the Singer manual for your machine is always helpful as it will be specific to your machine.

However, if you've never used a machine at all, best advice is take lessons.

Call Singer at 1-800-4singer and ask why there is no free manual. Maybe they will make it available. Worth a try.

I have not run across a free instruction manual, the only one I saw was on the www.singerco.com site and they are $15 for a hard copy. I may not be a bad investment if you plan on keeping the machine. It shows you much more than threading and will be invaluable for advice on settings and maintenance.

Go to www.singerco.com and download a free manual. All you have to do is go under the customer support tab and then enter 1525 and voila. You can save it to your computer and/or print it.

If your needle is inserted right, you may have a timing problem and it is not a do it yourself job, unfortunately because it requires special tools and know how. . Call Singer (1-800-4singer) and ask customer service and see what they say and they can best advise you.

Get a copy of your manual for free to download at www.singerco.com and it will explain it to you on page 28.
Print out a copy and save one to your computer, then you will always have it. Good luck and happy sewing
