    Sigma 2016 nova

    Does any one know anything about this machine? At present trying Spain but finding dealers is difficult when you don't speak the language. This is my machine?

    I have scoured the net and have not been able to find even a photo of this machine. There are very, very few websites that even mention Sigma sewing machines.

    Is the machine in need of repair? Or do you need a manual? Or......?

    I'm basically after a manual. But at present can't work out how to make the fancy stitches. I have been searching web etc for weeks. At present I am trying to communicate with a Spanish firm. It runs like a dream I was hoping to use it as my go to class machine. Thank you for your help prism99

    I'm curious about the machine. The top left knob is clearly stitch width. The bottom left knob is clearly stitch length. The lever on the bottom left is clearly reverse. That leaves the lever on the far right as the stitch selection lever. I would think the flower button on the upper left probably chooses the top row of stitch selections, while the button underneath chooses the second row. What happens when you select the flower button and then move the far right lever? I would expect it to light up a selection but, even if it doesn't (maybe light is blown) I would test sew to see if you can change the stitch selection. Can you get any of the decorative stitches at all? If not, my thought would be that the computerized board that control stitch selection is dead.

    The star burst button and one below don't work. The stitch selector is on the left below needle wheel..I have tried lever on the left but not found out what it does yet. It is not computerised. But I am surprised how nobody seems to know anything about it. I have tried fix ya but even they have not found manual.

    Have you tried setting the color coding? Around each dial there is a color that corresponds to the stitches shown. If you set those, will it sew?

    The comments in that site could be me asking for any manual or information. So far none appeared. I can find some sigma machines very old same as early singers. Some say sigma is a Spanish part of singer. If this is so. I would have thought that singer had the same machine but no luck.
