How to thread on a singer 4411. Thank you


To thread the upper thread, make sure that the needle bar is fully up, using the hand wheel. Put the thread spool on the spool pin and secure it with the spool holder. Use the end of the spool holder that is closest to the spool size. Bring the thread through first guide to the left of the spool holder. Slide it past and behind the guide before pulling it into the guide. Then bring the thread to the pre-tension spring. Similarly, the thread goes behind the spring and then comes forward. Next bring the thread down through the channel and up through the adjacent one further to the left. It helps to hold the thread between the spool and the thread guide. Once you bring the thread up through the second channel bring it from right to left through the slotted eye of the take-up lever. Bring the thread down and through the horizontal thread guide, the thin guide clamp needle and to the needle. Thread the needle from front to back.

The manuals for most Singer sewing machines are available from the manufacturer's site: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual for the 4411 is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1230_4411_heavy_duty_esf.pdf . See page page 16 (page 23 of the PDF) for pictures of the guides.

I hope this helps.

I have a singer featherweight 11 117 model and the spool pin snapped. Where can I get a replacement?


First of all, it's likely at this point that you think your machine is unusable without it, but you're wrong. I have four Singer high-end sewing and embroidery machines, and it has been years since I used their spool pins.

Simply put a coffee cup or--my favorite--a lidless pint Mason Jar at the back of your sewing machine towards the right (away from the fabric side), bend the thread (don't wind the thread) around the remains of the spool pin to use it as a thread guide, and then thread the way you usually do, and you are in business!

Now, to address the replacement issue, there are several places where you can order a new one. Do a search on eBay for "Singer Featherweight Spool Pin" and a number of listings will come up. Don't put in your model number in the search box. If you see that a dealer is featuring one for a Featherweight, but not for your model, don't hesitate to use the "Ask a Question" option in a listing; these are generally quite knowledgeable dealers who can order one for you. Also Jenny's Sewing Studio and Sewing Parts Online either have them in stock or can order them for you. It appears that they are quite inexpensive too!

How do you thread a singer merritt 1872?


Wow, one of the few Singer machines that doesn't have a free download manual. Hmmm..... Ok looked up a photo of your machine. It's pretty easy.

1. raise your presser foot.
2. Put thread on spool pin.
3. draw thread over to and under from behind of the pre-tension disc at top
4. Draw thread down from the right and under the tension dial to seat the thread into the tension discs and flex that spring a little.
5. Through the take up lever.
6. Down through the thread guide.
7. Down through the needle bar thread guide.
8. Through the needle.

Hope that helps.

How do you thread a 9217 Singer Sewing maching?


First put a spool (thread catch to the bottom of the pin) on the spool pin and put the appropriate size cap on top. Then snap the thread into the guide on the top near the arrows. Draw the thread following the arrows, down and then up before coming down again to the needle. Then either use the threader or draw the thread through the needle so that the thread is coming down the groove of the needle.

Singer has the manual available on their support site. The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1b31eb32672226a4703511ff5673ec1d3cc95d6f.pdf . See page 5 if my description isn't clear. You can also order a copy by using the search feature here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals .

I hope this helps.

How to thread singer electronic machine (model 2517) I put the cone thread on top of machine but can't secure it to continue on with threading the machine


are you using a large cone of thread such as would be used on an overlocker? If so, yes you will have problems on a domestic sewing machine. Either run some thread off to fill a bobbin and then use this on the top of the machine. Or buy thread in a thousand metre spool and use this, its better quality thread and certainly easier to place on the machine 's spool holder. If you really want to use the bulk cone, then you probably need to buy one of these to make it possible.tally_girl_72.jpg
I hope I've understood your problem. If you need threading diagrams for your Singer then go to their website http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals and download your manual, most are there.

The upper thread in my Singer Simple Sewing Machine gets stuck.


sometimes the thread on mine will get twisted and creates too high a tension. try re-threading . Mine did this , I have no idea how it got twisted behind there, but it did. I have to re-thread from the spool down.I am used to industrial machines and tend to have a heavy foot on my poor little Singer. That is about all I can think of that may have caused it.
