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.

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.

I have a brand new 4423 that is frustrating me so much I'm tempted to return it and buy something else. It will not sew a seam without having "birdnesting" underneath. It's horrible!! ...


Take it back while its under warranty and ask the dealer to thread up and sew on it; this way you can establish if it is a faulty machine or if its some other variable causing it. Certainly if you are an experienced sewer and have used other Singers, then you would know if you've done it correctly and your instincts tell you the machine is faulty so I'd suggest you take it back to the store.

Skipped stitches. Also, won't transition


have you checked the needle to make sure it's in correctly--flat side of needle goes to the back of the machine

correct needle insertion is mandatory for the proper use in your sewing machine. Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the needle clamp screw to remove the old needle.
place the new needle in the needle clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back (or if using a round needle the groove in the needle should be facing away from the shaft.
push the needle all the way up to the stop, or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw.

how to decide which needle is correct to sew with, it depends on the fabric & thread being used for the project.
like for example, I've been sewing for over 30 years, I'm sewing a stretchy fabric & regular needles won't work because they skip stitches & will pull the fabric thus damaging the fabric, the needle I have to use is a singer universal ball point needles, & I have no problem with the stitches they come out fine.

Buttonholing - Bernina 950 (semi-industrial)


This sewing machine looks exactly like the Berninas that I own, although my are not industrial. You just use the dial to make each side of the buttonhole, only having to set the stitch length to super small. The way you make buttonholes is this:

Think of the buttonhole as a square-ish capital O, with the center of the bottom of the O as the point where the button shank will lie when buttoned. Place the marked buttonhole area under the buttonhole foot, with this bottom point directly under the foot, squarely in the center of the 'hole'.
-Turn the dial to 1 and the long left edge will sew in zig zag stitches; stop the machine at the top of the O.
-Then turn the dial to 2 and the top edge of the O will sew; stop the machine after half a dozen stitches.
-Turn the dial to 3 and the right edge will sew; stop the machine at the bottom of the O.
-Turn the dial to 4 and the bottom edge of the O will sew; stop the machine after half a doze stitches.
-Turn the dial to 5 and run half a dozen stitches; this is a line of straight stitches that will 'tie off' the buttonhole.

Try this with a plain piece of fabric. Just put the fabric under the foot and dial away. You'll see how the stitches stitch.

I'll send a copy of instructions from my manual to you if you want. Email me at: pink8006@yahoo.com.

Will not run


I had the same problem with my machine, there is nothing you personally can do to fix it. You'll have to find a service tech who can work on it to solve the problem.
