Do you know if your Reliable brand motor is a Clutch or Servo motor? I suspect that if it is a clutch motor ... the safety clutch has been tripped.

My singer 7469 lights are all blinking she won't sew

flashing lights, beeping sound are error signs its posiibly the upper tension path is not threaded correctly. Check that the transparent thread path located at the top of the machine is threaded correctly.
Hold thread in both hands and slip under transparent thread guide. While holding the thread securely, pull the thread towards you and then slip it back and forth like you were flossing. You should hear or feel two clicks as the thread slips past the thread guides. 2ca6d1db-fd79-4114-9d73-88b025c69c68.jpg

20u73 singer timing issues

is the needle the right one for the fabric being sewed?
is the needle turned the right way in the needle holder and pushed
all the way up in the needle holder?
if the above is totally correct, the I suggest taking the machine
to some other repair person, cause if the repair technican can't
time the machine they should have told you they couldn't work on the
machine .

I just bought a singer 20u73 sewing machine and instantly lost the screw that hold the needle in the shaft! Can I get a machine screw at a hardware store to replace this? what size? HELP! What do i do?

I had the same thing happen on a 14j334 serger, and the only place I could find one was on, but I don't see your machine listed. Try calling them or Singer at 1-800-4singer and they may be able to advise you as to what size it is.
