Adjust timing on Singer Merritt 4530

Help! I'm trying to finish my daughter's Halloween costume and my bobbin thread isn't picking up. I've deduced that it is a timing issue (thanks to breaking a needle). I can't find my manual anywhere!

Can anyone give me SIMPLE instructions for adjusting the timing on this machine?

Thanks, in advance for your help!

    I have tried every which way to get it to sew and my only other option I think is to set the timing. As of now it will not even make a stitch. i hope that you could help me with this problem.... Jan Grant

What is the secret to getting the bobbin holder back into the singer merritt 4530?


I have trouble with this every single time. What you need to do is remove the silver plate right under the needle. If you think of the case as the number 6, put the comma I just typed (a little piece of plastic sticking out from the rounded section at the bottom) under the metal at the bottom.

Then slide the metal plate at the top back on. You may need to turn the knob on the side of the machine (that makes the needle go up and down) to get it to go back on. At this point, as you're turning the knob, the bobbin case should fall back into place.

I just finished doing this myself. Now my issue is that the thread from the bobbin keeps knotting up.

How do i thread my bobbin on my singer merritt 4530


Run the thread around the little silver knob on the top of the machine to the bobbin threader on the top right. Wrap the thread clockwise around the bobbin a few times and then pull the bobbin threader toward the silver bar. If you put your hand on the crank wheel, you will feel a place for your finger to set. Push there and the center of the crank wheel will sideways allowing you to thread the bobbin when you press the pedal. I'm sure my terminology doesn't make any sense.

Singer/merritt 2430 bobbin fill


If you lift up the thread holder, the bobbin holder is inside. Loosen the hand guide to stop the needle from going up and down. Pull the thread around the top thread guide and back into the bobbin holder. Thread the bobbin and move the bobbin over so the guage is "inside" the bobbin. As for the manual, the Singer Merritt 2404 is applicable to the 2430 if that helps.

Singer 626 Not sewing


First, give Mom all your Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
Then, be sure the bobbin-winding function is not still engaged. Check it again, since on some machines, the mechanism has to be backed off until you hear a click, or until a light turns off. If that's done, check the tension on your top thread, since that's easier, then on your bobbin thread.
If the bobbin didn't get wound evenly (Like if you're hurrying) that will mess up its ability to let the thread flow out, so see if the thread on the bobbin looks as smooth as a new spool of thread.
I hope you got your costume together & had fun aside for that frustration. :^)

How do you thread a singer merritt 4530 sewing machine


all machines thread the same. TTN tension, take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.
