Question about Singer Sewing Machines

Open Question

I have a Singer Stylist 834 and the feed dog just quit pulling the material thru so I can not sew. The teeth of the feed dog is a little below the plate at this time.

I have a Singer Stylist Model 834 sewing machine and the feed dog just quit pushing the material thru and it does not allow the material to move to be able to sew. I gently touched the top of the feed dog and it is now even with the plate. Any ideas how I can adjust the feed dog? Unfortunately I can not locate my manual for the machine.

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.

Sometimes there is a lot of lint build-up in the feed dog, it may want to move, but it can't because of the dust. Remove dust before you oil!

I can definitely help you with the owners manual. Go to http://parts.singerco.com/IPinstManuals/457A_105_125_135_143A.pdf and you can download it direct from singer, no viruses, nothing. Just save it in Adobe format.

The bobbin thread problem is called a birds' nest and can be from a number of problems. First thing to do is to change your needle, especially if it was the one you bought the machine with. It may look perfectly straight to the naked eye. But it only needs to be a little bent to cause a problem. If this doesn't clear the problem up, make sure you're using a new bobbin, freshly wound. If the bobbin isn't wound properly or is an old bobbin that's slightly bent or not quite round, it'll cause problems, too. Finally, the machine may need a new bobbin casing. Do a google search for Singer sewing machine parts and search for a bobbin casing for a model 457. You'll remove the plate from the top of the machine CAREFULLY (the screws are small, so be careful not to lose them!). Take pictures if you need to with your cell phone so you can see what to do when you need to put the new casing in. Bobbin casings are usually $25-30. This is the last thing, and I would only do this if you see that thread is catching on something in the bobbin area when you're moving the wheel by hand.

I've tried to be clear on the last bit, but I realize it can be a little awkward. If you need any other help with that, please leave me a comment back. It goes straight to my email, so I'll see it quick and will get back to you right away. The manual doesn't help a lot with your bobbin problem, so I'll do whatever I can to help you through it and get you sewing. Good for you for finding a great garage sale find!

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.

It is a Singer stylist 834 and I can't get the machine to feed the material through. I already checked the settings and cleaned it out but had no success


I just downloaded the manual for your serger from the Singer site, and on page 30 under Troubleshooting, it says that either the presser foot isn't set with enough pressure, or the differential feed is not set correctly.

Why is singer stylist 834 feed dog is not working


After flipping the lever, button, or dial (whatever brings it up on your machine), you must ALSO turn your hand wheel TOWARDS you (ALWAYS turn it towards you for anything) at least one revolution, but it can be up to three revolutions before it will raise. You will hear it snap into place.

This is true of every sewing machine manufactured by anyone, by the way.

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

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.
