Product Description

Amazon.com

Capable of 40 stitch functions and loaded with other options, this Singer machine is simple to operate and makes it possible for even novices to enjoy creative sewing. Some of the convenience features include a top drop-in bobbin that's easy-in, easy-out, and easy to see; an easy threading system with a dial for precisely adjusting needle-thread tension; an electronically controlled foot pedal for smoothly maintaining or changing speeds; touch-and-wind handwheel declutching; push-button reverse sewing for neat seam-ends; a three-needle position selector for attaching zippers and top stitching; and a built-in four-step buttonholer for easy buttonhole sewing. The machine is quiet and ruggedly built, includes a sewing light and a built-in carrying handle, provides horizontal thread delivery for better stitches, and has a slide-off extension table for free-arm sewing. Real excitement comes from the 40 stitch functions provided, including, for example, overedge, monogram, satin, sandcastle, feather, kite, and darning. A complete accessory package (various presser feet, friction-free spool holders, transparent bobbins, and needles for sewing different fabrics) is included, and it stores onboard the machine. Invaluable is Singer's illustrated, step-by-step instruction booklet covering everything from the basics to zipper sewing to pattern stitching to free-arm sewing to highly detailed buttonhole sewing--and much, much more. --Fred Brack

This machine is Great for beginners and experienced sewers.

The first time I got it out to use it, it jammed, the thread tangled, the needle bent, and the zig-zag stich would not work.

I have no idea how this happened, but I am glad I have an excuse to get a new one!

I bought this machine from the "Gold Box" for my wife's anniversary. She unpacked it and was able to sew a few stitches before the needle caught on the needle plate and bent. She put the second needle in and watched it hit the needle plate. So for now the machine is unusable, which is disappointing to say the least.
The nearest authorized Singer center is about 90 miles from us, so it is going to be inconvenient at best to get the machine replaced or repaired.
I imagine that the majority of these machines work properly out of the box, (obviously most of the reviewers are happy with thier machines), I think it's important to know that there is at least one that wasn't. The needle is only off by a fraction of an inch, and it did work for a few stitches, so it may have passed some level of quality testing before leaving the factory, and Amazon.com's price for the machine is excellent. We just got a lemon this time.
The other thing that is somewhat disconcerting is that the date on the manual is 1994 and the date on the warrenty was 1998, so while this machine came sealed in the box, it isn't exactly "new", and while the manual is available on the Singer web site, ... you can't buy one of these machines there.
Additional Info: The Singer Service center we brought the machine to took 5 minutes to make an adjustment that fixed the problem. He said that the particular problem happens in shipping if the machine is dropped or jarred.

This is not the first sewing machine I have ever used but it is the first that I have owned. When I decided that I wanted to learn how to sew and do a few crafts and make a few clothes for my family, I shopped for certain critiera.
1. Price
2. Features
3. Ease of Use
4. Price
I shopped for 5 months looking for a machine and compared prices with features, mostly. This machine had alot more features then most machines for [the price].
This machine comes with several feet and a easy to follow manual, explaining what all the stitching is for.
The top drop bobbin is easy setup. Buttonholes are easy also with the button foot included and auto steps. Snap on feet are great and adding new feet is easy. This sewing machine will do alot and more if you want. This machine is Great for beginners and experienced sewers.

My new singer 5040 was delivered yesterday in the middle of the longest winter I can remember. The machine itself is great especially for such an affordable price. I have lots of projects all ready to be sewed since I was waiting for this machine to replace another beloved Singer that died. My disappointment was in finding one bobbin packed with it. Since bobbins I have on hand won't fit I'll have the inconvenience of rethreading that one over and over until the roads clear enough to go to a store that has them. The photo plainly shows 6 bobbins and 2 of each attachment. I got one of each attachment and only 1 bobbin. If purchasing this product you might want to plan ahead.

I recently bought the Singer model 5040 from my "Gold Box" and have been extremely pleased with it. I'm 24 years old, and I taught myself how to sew as a child on my mother's Sears or Necchi machine (I can't remember which brand, but I think that my grandmother bought that machine in the early 1960s).
My only complaint is that I guess I am just not used to plastic machines. A large percentage of this Singer machine is plastic, and its electrical warranty is only good for two years. However, the mechanical warranty is good for 20 years. I miss the metal bobbins and sturdiness of my mom's machine...
Anyhow, its manual is easy to read, and I got acquainted with the machine, had the bobbins threaded, and was sewing in about ten minutes. It has 40 different stitch options, but so far I've only used about five. I will probably experiment with some of the others as I get more comfortable with decorative applique work, etc. I think that the Singer 5040 is a darn good value for its price.

Every time I've used this machine I've spent over an hour trying to raise the bobbin thread successfully. Everything appears fine until you sew, and then if the thread doesn't tangle in the bobbin area it appears to be loopy underneath the fabric. If the bobbin is loaded "just right" it sews fine (without adjusting settings on the machine). I thought it was just me until a much more experienced person had exactly the same problem - it shouldn't be this difficult! After reading the other reviews I'm suspecting there may be a problem with that part of the machine - stay away from this model.

I bought this sewing machine after breaking the machine I inherited from my mom. I had heard by some to stay away from Singers, but after much research decided to purchase this machine. I have bene very, very pleased with it. I sew quite a bit and I have never had any problems with this Singer.

My husband bought this sewing machine for me for Christmas. I was very excited to receive it. The first time I got it out to use it, it jammed, the thread tangled, the needle bent, and the zig-zag stich would not work. Eventually I discovered the pattern module was in wrong from the factory, which caused the zig-zag stich not to work. I also realized that the reason it was jamming was that the thread was catching on the broken bobbin holder. My husband and I brought the machine to a professional repair shop to have them look at it, and the owner said that the bobbin holder was not lubricated, and one of the parts was assembled incorrectly. He recomended that we return it. We followed his advise, and since we pay close attention to the reviews that other people give on these sights, decided to warn everyone else about how severely dissapointing this machine is. In general, this machine is poorly made, the instruction manual is useless, and we expected much better from a Singer.
