    Default Does anyone have more information on this machine ? Singer 7136

    I have a Singer 7136. It was from my grandma. I do not have a lot information on this machine.

    So I like to know in what year this machine was made.
    I looked it up on https://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_mac...sses-500+.html
    There is only a 7136M in 1982. I do think this machine is older than that. Also I like to know where the M is standing for.

    What was the machine used for ?

    How do you place the bobbin in to the machine and it threa properly. I am able to thread the top-thread, but cannot do the bobbin thread.

    I cannot find the notches.

    Sometimes I am capable of getting the bobbin thread, but after that I can't make any stitches after turning the wheel five times the machine is jammed.

    7136 is not used much on youtube, are there a similair types, where I can look for in video's ?

    If it is older than that, it is probably only a few years, if that. Do you have an original manual? The only free ones that I could find were for other machines in the 7100 series and were dated 1979. The "M" after a model number just indicates the factory (Monza, Italy) where the machine was made. Other such designations can be found at https://cyndykitt.com.au/machines/id-02.htm

    It was a domestic machine so used to make clothes and other things that one would use a domestic machine for.

    There is a picture of the bobbin case at https://www.amazon.com/Desk-Daves-ID.../dp/B07NKKWQ4X that shows where the notch is. The first image would be like looking at it from behind and from the handwheel end. Maybe a dental mirror would help see the notch if you are sitting at the machine normally.

    Thank you. That has helped so much.

    I am now able to sew on this machine.

    How can I switch between the yellow and the white stitches ?

    There is a manual at https://res.cloudinary.com/singer-se...ng_Machine.pdf It is for a 7110, but it looks like it will work for your machine. It shows how to select pattern on page 27 and then on page 28 it shows how to make the stretch stitches (yellow ones) by using the stitch length knob to have the bar symbol on the dial to the Notch symbol above. It looks like the stretch stitches do not have an adjustable width.

    Thank you. Now I see how it works.

    I did assume that. 1 till 4 were used for buttonholes.

    So 1 used for the yellow stitches and 2 till 4 for the buttonholes.

    I have not tried it yet but I will.
