There will be a programme function that you will need to go through, probably entering a numeral for each letter you want stitched, then probably pressing a memory key, you should end up with a sequence of letters on the screen, you'll need to then press the foot pedal to stitch it out.

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

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.

My sewing machine jammed the fabric into the bobbin case and now it won't sew the needle hits the plate under the bobbin case can I adjust this myself


Here are some videos that may help. If not, search the internet for thread jam.

If you get it unjammed, be sure to install a new needle as the old one is probably damaged. If there are still issues, the machine's timing may be off and would need professional 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?

Look at page 80 of your manual.

There's a little finger on the left of the plate that fits in the corner.

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 have a singer confidence 7470 and I have had it since March. I last used it on Monday and it was working just fine. Today I plugged it in and it won't turn on. I don't know what to do..


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.

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.

I have a Singer confidence 7470 and when i sew something the string on the bottom part of the material gathers....i tried playing with the tension adjustment but it didnt work Your help would be...


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!
