My Singer 6268 Not Making All Stitch Types?

My Singer 6268 will not do stitches 4, 11, or 18. All of the other stitches work fine. The selector buttons for these three stitches are in the same column. How do I repair that column?

First of all, here's a link to the free download of your user guide at the Singer website:

Go through the manual to be sure you've set the width, length, and any other settings needed for the stitches you want to use.

If that doesn't help, you need to take your lovely vintage electronic sewing machine to a factory authorised repair tech. Yes, it may be expensive (I suspect one of the cartridges has failed) but worth it if the parts needed can be sourced.

Be wary if the tech tries to talk you into 'junking' the machine in favour of a 'comparable upgrade'. He/she may be spot-n your machine has sewn it's last stitches 4, 11, or 18, but as you state the machine is still sewing the other stitches, and assuming all else is fine, there is no reason to 'junk' the machine. Upgrades are great but if you're ok with losing three stitches, keep the machine. It's possible the tech is hoping to get your machine (hence my warning to be wary) for parts or to refurb your machine to sell on - sadly, not all repair techs are as nice as we'd like them to be.
