You can buy some instructions from Terry here. I got the ones for the 413 Stylist. They are acceptable and also show how to time the machine.

SOURCE: I have a Singer Stylist 513 & I cannot get the feed dogs raised.

The model 513 Singer has two gears which operate the feeding mechanism. If one of these gears is broken, the machine will run except the feed dogs will not move. This is a very common problem with this model.

loosen the screw on the larger of the two feed gears (not bevel gears). Retigten so that the feed teeth start to rise right when the needle starts to rise and fall right when the needle starts to go into the fabric. Make the setting the same. i.e. when the feed teeth start to rise, how high is the needle (2mm, 3mm, etc.)? set the feed timing so the teeth rise and fall with the needle at the same height going in and coming out, this assures that the fabric only feeds when the needle is out of the fabric.

For a close setting, the needle bar must raise about 1/8 inch when the hook point is behind the needle and the needle bar is in the middle of the needle opening on the needle plate.
You need to check the feed timing also after retiming the hook. The feed dog should start towards the rear as soon as the needle starts down.Good luck

SOURCE: singer stylist sewing machine 534 is not stitching

Feed dog drive gear(2) are plastic and are probably stripped. Always replace them in pairs. While you are at it replace both hook drive gears as well. It will run as good as new.

Feeddog singer stylist 776 how would the feeddog gt lowered


Consult the owner's manual. There should be instructions for how to darn with your machine. It would require either the feature that lowers/raises the feed dogs or a cover plate that attaches over the feed dogs.

If your machine came with the cover plate accessory, and the feed dogs are not rising to feed the fabric, then I suspect the machine has not been cleaned & oiled in quite some time and perhaps the feed dogs have seized. When you run the machine (remove the needle and presser foot), watch if the feed dogs actually drop below the needle plate, move toward the front of the machine, then rise above the needle plate and move toward the back of the machine. This is a repetitive motion that actually pulls the fabric through the machine. If this is not happening with your machine, it needs service.

How do I change the feed dog gear on a singer stylist 534


You'll need the service manual, because once the feed dogs are replaced, they need to be retimed. You can purchase and download the service manual for your machine here:

Do you prefer the singer stylist 518 or 834? I am looking at purchasing one of them


Here's a review for the 834.
http://zigzaggers.typepad.com/zigzaggers/2008/07/singer-stylist-834.html
Although it mentions you cannot raise and lower the feed dogs, you can change the throat plate to cover the feed dogs when you don't want to use them.
I couldn't find any reviews for the 518. I think the higher the number, the newer the machine although I may be wrong about that! I have a Singer Stylist 416.
I would look at how easy and expensive it is to get replacement parts for both machines before making your choice.
This is a good site for Singer Stylist parts. http://www.tandtrepair.com/index.html
Why don't you email the guy who runs it and ask him what his preference would be?
Hope this helps, Hazel

Bobbin not turning, possible motor/gear issue?


You have a broken vertical shaft gear. It's very easy to replace if you are mechanically inclined. The gear can be purchased for between $8-14 from a sewing repair store and I can walk you through the process.

Bobbit thread on my Singer Stylist 457 will not catch


Pull the slide plate open and watch the hook (the rotating part under the bobbin case). It should move around with no hitch.

If it does not turn, it has a broken gear. The model 457 has a vertical shaft gear that breaks and it's easy to replace.
