SOURCE: Top stitch looks good, bottom stitch is loopy

this is a common problem, don't worry it's easy to fix.  take the spool of thread off, remove the bobbin.  look for any stray thread pieces in or around the bobbin case, rethread the top of the machine and when you do, follow the threading guide precisely and ---here's the trick---make certain that the thread goes between the tension discs.

The presser bar is not moving, there is a set screw that controls the presser foot height on the bar, it may be to tight. Take the side cover off, and look for the presser bar, the set screw unit should be facing you. Unscrew it and see if the presser bar handel will now move.

The presser bar height should be set at 7 mm. To make an adjustment loosen the set screw. From the top of the machine, press down firmly on the presser bar and then secure the set screw.

There may be a disconnection between the lever and the presser foot bar. Perhaps a screw has fallen out, broken, or is loose? May need to take it for service.

How do I reset the presser foot pressure back to the factory default on the SINGER 1507wc?


Once the presser foot pressure adjustment has been made it is a matter of matching the pressure to your fabric. Using a coin turn to button clockwise to tighten ( as for heavier fabrics) and anti clockwise to loosen (as for lighter fabrics). It will be up to you to find just the right settings depending on type of fabric and thickness.

My Singer XL 6000 upper thread is too tight and keeps breaking, when the presser foot is up the upper thread is loose, but when the presser foot is lowered the threah gets too tight, what I notice is that...


You need to loosen the tension on the machine. There is a dial that has numbers on it. The higher the dial is set, the tighter the tension is. Turn the dial to the left one number. Then try it. Do it over and over. Do not turn the dial all the way down or you will mess up your machine. Do it slowly, one number at a time and try the machine between dials.

Vintage Tough and Sew Model # 628 PRESSER FOOT QUESTION!


You should be able to figure out which shank your machine has here:

If you have the manual, it should show you how to change the presser feet.

If your machine and presser foot look like the one in the video, the screw on the left side of the presser foot should be what holds the presser foot in place.

How do i install the darning foot?


Make sure that you have a darning foot that is compatible with your machine. I believe that the 7422 is a low shank foot; the appropriate daning foot is http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/darning-foot-singer-006016008.aspx . Lift the presser foot and remove the foot currently on the machine, including the ankle. (Loosen the screw on the left side of the ankle.)

Place the darning plate over the regular plate and feed dogs. The pins should lock into the spots on the machine.

Place the U-shaped opening of the darning foot over the screw that you loosened previously. Then tighten the screw to hold the foot on the machine.

Lower the presser foot onto your fabric. Set your stitch length. Lower the lever on the right side of the darning foot and hold onto your top thread (assuming the needle and bobbin thread are already threaded.) Now sew.

I hope this helps.

I have a singer 4552 (portable) and I am having a prblem getting the zipper foot attached. Also I am having a problem getting the design stiching to work. I can get the red design stiches to work but not...


Hi. Here's how to attached the zipper foot.

To Attach the Zipper Foot
1. Loosen the large screw at the left of the presser bar and remove presser foot (You do not need to remove the screw).
2. Hook the prongs of the Zipper Foot around the presser bar from the back, and tighten the presser-bar screw.
3. If the raised edge (zipper or cording) is to the right of the needle, adjust the Zipper Foot by loosening the thumb screw at the back of the foot and sliding foot to the left of the needle. If the raised edge is to the left, slide foot to right.
4. With presser foot down, check its position by lowering needle into side notch, making sure it just clears the foot.
5. Tighten thumb screw to lock foot into position.
When raised edge is placed to right -- adjust foot to left of needle.
When raised edge is placed to left -- adjust foot to right of needle.

The presser foot lifter of my Singer 9432 has disconnected


Had the same problem.
Open the cover where the light bulb is.

Follow the presser foot rod up into the machine.

You will find a metal keeper with a set screw facing the now open end of the machine.

That set screw has most likely come loose.

Since the presser foot is spring loaded to the down position leave the presser foot raising lever in the down position.

With your flat bladed screwdriver, gently push the metal keeper to it's lowest position. If it does not go easy, loosen the metal keeper set screw a bit. Lefty loosey.

Tighten the set screw on the metal keeper. Righty tighty.

Model 4832c


guide the the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.)If it doesn't work like this, then there is probably thread stuck inside the tension assembly. Set the tension to zero and blow hard between the discs to dislodge the thread. If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle.

Check to be sure you have the correct bobbin and that it is inserted the correct way.
OR remove the needle plate to remove the bobbin case. Look for any burrs or rough spots. Use a fine emery stick and steel wool to remove and buff them Reassemble and try again.
