Question about Singer 7462 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Singer Confidence 7470 does 3-4 stitches, then beeps and stops

Brand new out of the box. When we press the pedal the machine does 3-4 stitches and then stops and beeps twice. There are no errors and if you press the pedal again it does the same thing. I have read multiple posts and the button hole lever is up. Any suggestions? I do see a few other posts with a similar problem.

Ring up or go to where you bought it from. They should be able to tell you.

Singer conferdence 7470 not sewing

Try a brand new needle. If that doesn't work, then the machine is most likely out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Hi, I have a singer confidence 7470 sewing machine and the needle keeps hitting the bottom of the bobbin. I need to know how I can adjust the needle.

Try a brand new needle. If the old one is bent, that could be why it is striking. If the new needle doesn't resolve the issue, the machine most likely has a timing issue. You can search for multiple web sites and videos for discussions and instructions for sewing machine timing issues. Or you can take it for service.

My brand new Singer 7463 will not sew, even though the lights, stitch settings, and everything else are completely fine.

The foot pedal is just a variable resistor to give you speed control of the motor
You say the machine is new so it will still be under warranty
have a service technician check it out
It could be a faulty control pedal or leads or motor

I just recieved my BRAND NEW singer 7470 confidence today. i watched the quick start video, and went to wind a fresh bobbin. everything is set up correctly, and when i engage the foot pedal to begin...

I don't think that you do have it set up correctly, try again. Make sure that you have the path right, go around the little button and out again, then make sure that you have it pushed to the right and you hold the thread end to get started. Another thing to make sure is that you have the thread unwinding the right way. I had a student that had it unwinding with no resistance and couldn't figure out what was wrong and that was it. I know it sounds crazy but it happened, just the same. If that doesn't work, call Singer in the morning, 1-800-4singer and report it right away so if it is defective you can get a new machine. It is very hard to diagnose without actually seeing it, I hope that I am right and you can get it going because it looks like a nice machine. You can download your manual for free, at under support, and enter 7470, also go under customer resources and look at operation basics. Sorry, this is so long but I want you to be able to start sewing and having fun.

My sewing machine is brand new- Singer confidence 7463. I just took it out of the box and (read all manuals/dvds) threaded the bobbin. The machine stops, beeps and all the lights flash- then it will not...

I am having exactly the same problem. I called the Singer helpline and was on hold for 28 minutes before I gave up. I emailed them instead. Did you ever figure out what was going on?

The machine will feed the material you only need to guide it gently and it will sew the letters sideways.
