How to fix singer confidence 7470?

I tried to put buttons on my husband's pants. All of a sudden the tread is stuck. I am hearing a sound when I rotate. Then I opened up the machine and noticed that the timing is needed. I am trying to fix it myself cause I haven not find anyone can fix this machine in my area. Now,I have to find the repair manual. If anyone knows where to get it?

SOURCE: Buttonhole instructions needed for Singer 7422 Advance

These are the exact instructions from the Manual. 1. Select one of buttonhole patterns.
2. Replace the presser foot with the buttonhole foot. (Install presser foot with little red mark towards the front)
3. Insert the button into the buttonhole foot. (the part located in the back crescent shaped)
4. Lower the buttonhole lever (to the left of the needle) so that it drops down vertically between the stoppers A and B.
5. Carefully mark the position of buttonhole on your garment.
6. Place the fabric under the foot. Pull out the bobbin thread underneath the fabric to a length of about 4 inches to the rear.
7. Align the buttonhole mark on the fabric with the mark on the buttonhole foot, and then lower the buttonhole foot.
8. While holding the top thread, start the machine.
*Sewing will be completed automatically.
9. When sewing is finished, use a buttonhole opener to open up the frabric in the center of the buttonhole. Be careful not to cut anyt of the seam thread.
I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Using Singer 7470 for the first time, and my

1. Take bobbin out and re-insert and thread.
If that dosen't work, try:
2. Take bobbin out and bobbin case, clean area and re-insert bobbin case and bobbin.
If that dosen't work, try:
3. Re-thread the top thread that goes to the needle. (Sometimes the thread dosen't hook to the "Thread take-up"(page 6 on manual). It pulls the bobbin thread and the bobbing becomes loose inside the bobbin case.
If that dosen't work, try:
4. Wind a new bobbin (Sometimes a bobbin might wind thread to lose) Do not wind thread to the edge of bobbin.
If that dosen't work, you should take it in to be serviced...Somenthing might become loose that only a technitian can correct.
Also check manual for troubleshooting.
Good luck.....

SOURCE: Singer 7470 thread getting caught on hook

Take out the bobbin and parts again and check there is nothing caught in that area. Ensure you put them back in correctly as sometimes they can go in slightly misaligned. Also rethread the top to ensure smooth running. Make sure all dials are set to a straight stitch and it is not some misalignment of these causing the knocking.

First, make sure you have the bobbin placed correctly in the bobbin case. There should be a diagram showing the correct placement and thread path. Your upper tension should be set at "3." Then be sure the needle is inserted correctly...the groove should be toward the front of the machine. And just to be sure, recheck the upper threading. Sometimes one missed little thread guide will cause the problem you're describing. I hope this helps and that you can get your machine running again!

It should be under warranty, take it to where you bought it, if after trying a different electrical outlet, and making sure that the cord is plugged in correctly, it still does not turn on, You could have a defective cord.

Hi, I have a singer confidence 7470 sewing machine and the needle keeps hitting the bottom of the bobbin. I need to know how I can adjust the needle.


Try a brand new needle. If the old one is bent, that could be why it is striking. If the new needle doesn't resolve the issue, the machine most likely has a timing issue. You can search for multiple web sites and videos for discussions and instructions for sewing machine timing issues. Or you can take it for service.

Singer confidence 7470 while sewing the bobbing lifts up and makes a clanking noise the faster you sew. Any suggestions to this problem please?


It sounds like the bobbin is stretch. I fix mine taking a little screw driver (the one that comes with the machine) and turn the little bobbin case screw a tad to adjust the size of the bobbin carriage. Does the sound comes from the upper side of the machine or the under (bobbin) side of the machine? Did you oiled it correctly?

I was sewing with my Singer Confidence 7470 when it suddenly would not pick up the bobbin thread. I changed the needle, re-threaded the machine, and checked that the bobbin case is clean and in correctly...


Yes, try looking very closely at the needle assembly. Make sure the new needle is loaded with the flat side against the arm that holds it. If the machine is only a few months old, it's probably under warrantee. There should be a number to call on the serial plate. If all else, call the store you purchased it from. Sometimes they have sales people who are well versed with their equipment and can help you but I bet the needle is facing the wrong direction when you replaced it. Find any broken pieces of needle and remove them too. Look with a flashlight. I hope this helps!

I just recieved my BRAND NEW singer 7470 confidence today. i watched the quick start video, and went to wind a fresh bobbin. everything is set up correctly, and when i engage the foot pedal to begin...


I don't think that you do have it set up correctly, try again. Make sure that you have the path right, go around the little button and out again, then make sure that you have it pushed to the right and you hold the thread end to get started. Another thing to make sure is that you have the thread unwinding the right way. I had a student that had it unwinding with no resistance and couldn't figure out what was wrong and that was it. I know it sounds crazy but it happened, just the same. If that doesn't work, call Singer in the morning, 1-800-4singer and report it right away so if it is defective you can get a new machine. It is very hard to diagnose without actually seeing it, I hope that I am right and you can get it going because it looks like a nice machine. You can download your manual for free, at www.singerco.com under support, and enter 7470, also go under customer resources and look at operation basics. Sorry, this is so long but I want you to be able to start sewing and having fun.

The machine will feed the material you only need to guide it gently and it will sew the letters sideways.
