Questions & Answers for Singer Singer 5400 Sew Mate 60-Stitch Sewing Machine, 5400

Question

Is the thread take up arm supposed to be completely straight?

I have a singer sew mate model #5400 I bought at a Walmart 11 months ago. The needle would jam when I did the zig zag stich and the thread take arm was knocking. I just got the machine back from being repaired and the thread up take arm is still not straight. When I bought the machine the thread up take arm was at a slant .

I did buy this machine, but I'm afraid I don't know what a shank is. I'm still pretty new to sewing. I think you can find the item online and read all the machine details fairly easily.

If you look at the shipping weight of 17.1, I guess that makes it a terrible typo.

It is obviously a typo. I just got back from WalMart, and was able to lift it easily with one hand. I'd estimate the weight to be less than 20 lbs.

It does not come with a hard cover, but they do sell a "universal" hard case at Wal Mart.

It has a slot that your hand goes into to lift the machine, not a lift up or separate handle.

It doesn't come with a regular handle that you lift up the handle is a molded inside of the machine located at the top for carrying it. It does not come with a carrying case but it does come with a white plastic cover. Hope this helps.

It doesn't have a handle on top, but it has a place where your hands grip it in the middle. There is a soft cover for the machine.

This model is a portable machine, it does not have what is called a mounting bracket on the underside. If you already own a cabinet, you can sit the machine on the cabinet, but you will not be able to secure it to the base.
