SOURCE: Singer Featherweight 132 will not feed fabric

Have you checked to see what the stitch length setting is?
If it is threaded correctly in the top and in the bobbin, will it sew in reverse?

SOURCE: Can't seem to wind a bobbin on Singer 7466

HI, THERE ARE SEVERAL THINGS TO LOOK FOR WHEN YOU ARE WINDING A BOBBIN. FIRST CHECK YOUR THREAD, IS IT ON THE MACHINE GOING IN THE CORRECT DIRECTION. SECOND CHECK TO SEE IF YOU ARE THREADING THE THREAD THRU THE BOBBIN AREA ON TOP OF THE MACHINE CORRECTLY. I AM NOT FAMILIAR WITH YOUR MACHINE, BUT MOST HOME MACHINES HAVE THE BOBBIN THREADER ON TOP...THIS IS WHERE PART OF THE TENSION NEEDED COMES FROM TO WIND THE BOBBIN. NEXT, DOES YOUR MACHINE REQUIRE YOU TO LOOSEN THE TENSION ON THE WHEEL, OR DOES YOUR MACHINE HAVE YOU MOVING THE BOBBIN POST BEFORE IT WORKS. LASTLY, CHECK HOW YOU ARE ADDING YOUR THREAD TO THE BOBBIN AND PLACING IT ONTO THE BOBBIN HOLDER, IF IT IS NOT CORRECT IT WILL JUST SPIN OFF THE THREAD. I USUALLY LET THE THREAD GLIDE THRU MY FINGERS AT FIRST TO MAKE SURE I HAVE THE CORRECT TENSION. SOME MACHINES HAVE A TENSION SCREW THAT YOU CAN ADJUST THE THREAD TENSION. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A MANUAL FOR YOUR MACHINE, GO TO SINGER AND MOST LIKELY THEY WILL HAVE ONE THAT YOU CAN PURCHASE. I HAD TO BUY ONE ONCE AND IT WAS ABOUT $15.00, MAYBE THERE IS A SITE YOU CAN GET ONE FOR FREE I DON'T REALLY KNOW. HOPE THIS HELPS. JUST A SLIGHT THING NOT CORRECT AND YOUR MACHINE WILL NOT OPERATE CORRECTLY, SO IT MAYBE JUST YOU HAVE SOMETHING BACKWARDS OR YOU NEED TO LOOSEN THE FLYWHEEL OR MOVE THE BOBBIN PEG.

SOURCE: The fabric does not feed properly.

Remove the throat plate and clean out the lint in between the feed dogs (teeth). Make sure the throat plate is not bent downwards where the needle goes through. Also, after removing the lint turn the machine over by hand, the feed dogs at their highest point should be about 2mm above the throat plate.
Also, try this link, there are many free books.

SOURCE: Can't get the Lock Cutter

tally_girl_35.jpg have you got the little silver arm with a gap in it (see photo above mounted over the needle bar? This is essential as the movement of the needle bar going up and down is driving the blades in this attachment.
The walking foot attachment for sewing machines works the same way, you need to place the little arm over the needle bar to make this aftermarket accessory work as its not driven by the sewing machine motor, purely by the movement of the needle bar.

Saying that, I would be suprised if this attachment cut heavy weight fabric or several layers well, like many things made to imitate a purpose built machine (serger) there is no substitute for the real thing. It might be fine to just trim the fabric loose threads off a fabric edge but also you would need to watch that the trimmed bits are going somewhere and not getting into the seam or your machine. On a serger, the blades are working right beside a vertical drop off with a waste tray below and there is a lot of lint and fibres trimmed which quickly builds up. With this attachment, you'd have to manually ensure that the trimmed fibres are swept out of the way.

I hope this helps you to get it working though - 4 thumbs up if so. :-)

I have a singer model 513. It suddenly stopped moving the fabric forward while sewing....the little "teeth" are not moving, is this a belt issue or something else?


The feed dogs are not pulling the fabric through the machine properly. There are gears and arms that make that all happen.
These parts can break. Look for a switch or setting that lowers the feed dogs for free motion sewing. Please let a professional trained technician make any repairs or adjustments.

How to change light bulb on my singer 7466 sewing machine


Here's a manual for your machine:

http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/singer/7466.html

Didn't find instructions re the light bulb but best guess is that the cover on the left side needs to be removed. Looks like there may be a screw that holds the cover in place.

Thge most common fault is the needle plate is not on properly if you have a magnetic plate, you may have a drop feed mechanism in the bobbin case area.

I have a 7466 Singer sewing machine. No matter how I adjust the thread tension, the top thread always pulls the bobbin thread through to the top. I am doing thread painting. The feed dogs are lowered and...


Make sure to thread the machine with the presser foot up to insure the thread is seated into the tension control.

Always free-motion with the presser foot down.

Try a lower setting on the tension.

Feed dogs on Singer 7466 wont stay up.


There is a screw behind the feed dog with a plastic nut ,you need to loosen the nut and move the screw up or down and retighten where needed,,,,,,,,,also there is a plastic support under that screw that could have come out of place ,which means you will have to open the machine to reinstall it.
