Poor Quality

I bought the machine in nov 2013, as Singer was a great name from the time of my grandmother . and my elders swore by it. I could not use my machine due to, moving several times (machine was in storage), till the warranty which I had bought expired.

I used the machine ist time in june of 2015, it would not start, I followed instructions from the maual to no avail. then a friend helped and machine worked for an hour or so but the needle kept breaking, and would go left/right and hit needle plate, The manual said change needle, so I went and got several needles, one number 16 worked, the machine had a grinding sound, then, the thread started to get stuck, and I had to remove it several times, finally the machine got jammed and will not start. Singer has no repair center within my radius of 50 mile, private ones cost a lot.

I am now thinking this SINGER COMPANY Which Was Once great. now doest not care about customers, who spent above 150 dollars, and could not even stitch one dress with it. was it worth its name?.

The after sales service is horrible. there was a number on the machine to call, but you could hold on for a whole day without exaggerations, and no one will pick the phone.

I would request the to come and take back their machine and keep my hard earned money too. so they can be prosperous ?.

I got my machine for Christmas. I sewed with it for maybe 10 minutes. The needle went as far left as it could and would not reset. The needle kept hitting the plate.Now I have to wait for a shipping label to send it back. And wait for another machine. I think the next machine will be a Brother and it will come for a dealer.

I really put this machine to the test!! I was in the middle of making five quilts (including one king size!) and four purses for Christmas when my old Singer's bobbin messed up. I couldn't figure out how to fix it and I didn't have time to take to be repaired. I went to my local Walmart and bought my Sew Mate. It was absolutely a life (and Christmas) saver! I have totally enjoyed experimenting with all the stitches. I am not an extremely experienced seamstress, but with this machine, I do not have to be! I love this machine! Worth every penny!!

Sorry, my riview is not so good. My son bought me this machine to make some projects but I have so many problems with it that I stop my projects for a while. The last thing is that the machine broke the needles and only function with num 16. I consulted many forums to see what I'm doing wrong but no results with the new machine.
