Question about Singer 7462 Mechanical Sewing Machine

2 Answers

Machine No. K1831(256) No.28 how do you set up the stop motion wheel to wind bobbins. It either winds bobbins whilst sewing or just free wheels. I think there must be a way of adjusting this action. Hopefully you can help.

The manual wheel on the right side of the machine has a center piece. You press in on it to tilt it to stop the needle from going up and down while winding the bobbin.

    I'm so sorry. My comment was for a different model. I don't know how I ended up not on the model I was searching. My previous answer was for the Singer 4830 and 4832 models.

I have a Mega Quilter and would like to stop the needle from working up and down when I wind my bobbins. Do I do this in the menu of the read out?


Most machines with a bobbin winder on them have a round knob inside of the machines flywheel. That's the wheel that turns when you sew.
TURN the inside knob forward or reverse to lock or unlock the main gears from turning the needle bar in the sewing motion.

Easy

I removed the hand wheel cover on my Bernina 1001 because the wheel was too tight and now I cant get it to do anything...sew, wind bobbin. Help


With the wheel on you will have a 3 pronged washer, make sure that the screw on the stop motion wheel is unscrewed all the way, put the stop motion wheel back on ans tighten it hand tight only, tighten the screw in the stop motion and see if the stop motion frees off and then tightens again so the machine will work, if it does not take the stop motion wheel of again and move the 3 pronged washer in a different position and put the stop motion wheel back on again

HOW TO I WIND BOBBIN ON SINGER 347


If you mean the Singer Style Mate 347, open the face plate and remove the old bobbin. Then, the first step is to hold the hand wheel and loosen the stop-motion screw inside the hand wheel. (Keep the hand wheel from turning with one hand and turn the stop-motion screw towards the front of the machine.) Place your empty bobbin (hole away from the machine) on the spindle near the bobbin winder switch. Feed the thread from the spool on the spool pin through the eyelet on the top of the machine (near the top thread take up) and then down to and around the bobbin tension disc below the on-off power switch. Pass the thread through from the inside of the bobbin to the outside of the bobbin. Move the bobbin winder switch to On and hold onto the end of the thread. Start the machine and let a few winds get placed on the bobbin then stop for a minute. Cut the thread near the bobbin. Restart and continue winding more thread onto the bobbin until you have enough thread or the bobbin is full (it will stop automatically). Move the bobbin winder switch to off and tighten the stop-motion screw.

For pictures, see pages 6-7 in the manual. It's available as a PDF here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/9b8c1ca7584c2bea7837ca4bf5338af7f1b5380e.pdf . (These are pages 8-9 of the PDF.)

I hope this helps.

Stop motion wheel frozen. undid screw but not able to unscrew or loosen wheel. Machine runs beautiful except for this one issue.. how can I get this motion wheel off or loosened so that I can wind bo


As a simple fix you can buy a freestanding bobbin winding device online, this will wind a bobbin for most machines so is a simple fix and can be used at any time.

You may also want to remove the top cover of your machine and oil internally, it may help with the fly wheel issue. There is an oiling diagram for a White 1510 on this page http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Repair/White_Sewing_Machine_Maintenance/White_1505_1510.htm
If your machine top cover looks similar and you can remove it then certainly use this image as a guide to oil in the arrowed places, then manually turn the flywheel towards you gently to spread the oil. Use a good quality clear machine oil, or Triflow if you can, it has silicone in and doesn't dry out and leave sticky residue like a mineral oil can over time.

From reading the manual for the White 1418 on the Singer website, it looks like you hold the outer part of the flywheel and turn the inner knob towards you to disengage the clutch for bobbin winding. Is that what you have described above?

If you don't have the manual you can download it from the Singer Instruction manuals page, link is http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals, then type W1418 into the search field and click "search" then wait for the screen to load, you'll get a "Free download" icon on the right after a few seconds. Click this and wait again for the pdf file to download, it will take a bit of time depending on your internet speed.

How do you thread the bobbin on the model 9805c?


To wind a bobbin, reel on top of the machine, take the thread to the left and go around the small wheel, back to the winder, bobbin on the windere and wind the thread round a few times, slacken the stop motion and wind the bobbin.
If you have a drop in bobbin, hold the bobbin in your left hand, thread on the bottom of the spool, drop the spool in, take the thread through the slot to the left and lay it across the bobbin with enough thread to be pulled through by the needle

I have inherited a Necchi 537FA. When I wind a bobbin I loosen the stop motion wheel, but the sewing mecfhanism doesn't disconnect, it still "sews" through the entire bobbin winding procedure! ...


Its been idle for too long and needs a good service. Try and trickle some oil behind the stop motion wheel. But what it actually needs is to have the wheel removed and then apply oil to the shaft. Careful when you start again as oil will fly out from the wheel so mind your drapes and wall decor.

Locking disk on handwheel won't lock and I can't wind a bobbin


If the stop motion wheel is stuck and you can't free it the best way to do it is to stand at the end of the machine, get something that looks like a chisel or something that has a flat end even a screwdriver, put the end of the screwdriver in a slot on the left hand side of the stop motion and give it a sharp thump down, it worked for me for years, the only problem you may have is if you do not have any slots or grooves to put the screwdriver in.

Threading bobbin on singer stylist 522


To wind a bobbin put the cotton reel on the top pin, take the thread to the left and round the little wheel and back to the bobbin that should be on the winder, wind the thread round a few times to take a grip, release the stop motion in the balance wheel, turn the winder button so the winder moves to the balance wheel and press on the foot control slowly.
When you put the bobbin in the bobbin case make sure it turns anti clockwise.

Brother sewing machine


I have only a cheap one (VX-1100), but when this is happening on mine, the stop-motion knob isn't fully engaged with the balance wheel. They are held together by one being tightened to the other for sewing, loosened for bobbin winding. Michael
