All sewing machines are essentially timed the same ,Start with the needle in the lowest position and raise it 1/8" and make sure the hook point is above the eye and directly behind the needle and you are done

How do I set the timing on a singer future XL-400 sewing machine?


Timing adjustment is not easy unless you have been trained for that repair. It involves screws and truning the machine precisely in the correct position.
One has to wonder how you know it is off time? Has it been messed with, or hve you sewed something very hard or dense that made the machine timing change?

Singer 7462 will not pick up bobbin thread


You need to adjust the needle timing - called "timing the needle".
How do to that is usually included in the service or repair manual for your model of machine. There are various online shops where you can order this.

Also, the machine is pretty similar to the Single 7422, and there's an ehow article on how to adjust the timing on that model that you might find useful.

The machine will sew about three inches then the hook gets several threads around it and stops. I think the timing is off. How to set hook timing on a 2263 Singer Sewing Machine?


You can download an instruction manual for Singer machines from here http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html, just type in the model number and click "search".

This sounds more like top thread is not in tension though so have you checked tension is working okay?

However, to adjust timing you will need a service manual or general instructions for a horizontal hook sewing machine. You may find a video that helps with this on You-tube, I just leave it to the experts.
