Question about Singer 7436 - INGENUITY

1 Answer

Power is on, but it won't work at all.

I'm very new to sewing and have had the machine for about two years. I've only used it about half a dozen times, and it had been a few months. No problems ever. Now when I plug it in and press the foot control nothing happens. I can hear it trying to work but nothing happens. Just a whiring noise.

Try pushing the bobbin winder to the left. if that doesn't solve it and it still makes a whirring noise the belt is probably off the handwheel and will need to be seen by a technician.

Oil a machine that has been unused for 5 years


1. turn your machine few times by hand
2. mix your machine oil half and half with mineral turp, use that on all oil points, this will soften and help remove all hardened old oil,
3. run machine on few stitches on old rags to get rid of old oil
4. re-grease with your machine oil, run again and use normally.
5. re-grease machine on all points daily for next week or so and then, depending on the load monthly is fine

this should solve your greasing problem :-)

Singer 2277 buttonhole makwer makes half way then doesn't sew other side, or doesn't go past first step I've followed instructions step by step about 2 dozen times. I got 5 good buttonholes out of about 3...


Make sure your buttonhole lever is all the way down (I think it probably is, if you it will sew some of the buttonhole), and also sure that your bobbin winder is not partially engaged. In other words, make sure it's all the way to the left.

How to thread singer 57817


here is a link for a free manual, read the manual competely thru
first and then if the machine has been sitting up for years look in
the manual for oiling instructions and then oil where it shows
and then sew on a scrap piece of fabric but don't use any thread
so the oil can move thru the machine and loosen it up,,
try using a new needle--one that is right for the fabric you sew

L have an Elna 1010 that has never been plugged in. Do I need to oil it before I use it? Is it ready to go after all these years?


check in the manual and see if it's self oiling or not,, some
machine parts are soaked in oil from the factory & don't need
to be oiled other machines have to be oiled,,if the manual doesn't
say then contact elna customer service and ask them.
I won't promise the machine will work or won't work if it's been
sitting for years ,sometimes the grease can become sticky and
hard.
you'll be able to tell as soon as you start sewing, make sure you
read the manual completely, that way you know what the machine
will do and what it won't do.
always use the proper needle for the fabric
and the proper foot
if you go over a seam and the machine seems to struggle, take your
foot off the foot pedal and use the handwheel to move the needle
manually over the seam, that way you don't bend a needle and cause
the machine to jump time.
also make sure to have a comfortable chair and good lighting and
a good seam ripper just in case of a mistake.
if you get frustrated while sewing, get up and walk around, that can
help clear your mind, I've had to do that plenty of times and I've
been sewing for 30 years.
if you don't have a manual send me a comment and I'll try to find you one.
there are several websites that have tutorials and other things for
a quilter,,
happy sewing

After replacing needle, needle threader won't work. What am I doing wrong?


You probably haven't inserted the needle fully into the needle bar. Try that first.

Also check that there isn't a bit of needle shank in the holder.

Good luck.

Brothers sewing machine


first check the outlet to see if it works
next check to make sure the power cord is plugged into the machine
correctly.
if you've done the above things, & you push the switch to turn the machine on & it still won't come on, then the machine needs to be
checked.
