SOURCE: Broken needle sewing through Corderoy

This machine should be able to sew 9 layers with no real problems but it may be necessary to use a bridge or hump jumper to go over the big hump. Set your stitch length to almost the maximum and sew slowly(one stitch at a time). If it buzzes just turn it off, shorten the stitch length and try again. The above applies if you are using regular thread. If you are using heavy thread, you will need to use a top stitching needle size 18.( It has a larger eye)and adjust your tension as high as it will go to remove the loops on the bottom.

SOURCE: I have a 7466 Singer sewing machine. No matter how

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.

Singer Quantum XL 3400. How do I adjust the presser foot to decrease pressure when quilting several layers?


The owner's manual would most likely have the information. If there is an adjustment is is most likely on the top left of the machine or on the left side of the cover (over the needlebar).

If you are sewing slick fabric that shifts under the presser foot, try using a walking foot or a roller foot.

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.

What is thread setting for sawing fabric with


I don't think you'll get it to feed on a domestic sewing machine, the foam is going to be too thick and difficult to feed through. I've used an industrial Singer 20U to sew vinyl to 1/4" foam which has a dacron layer glued to it, ie like carpet underlay thickness. This was to make replacement seat covers for ride on mowers; the Singer was strong enough to sew through both layers in a straight stitch, I could manage to overedge it on my domestic Elna but need a roller foot to stop the vinyl from sticking to the foot, and a leather needle. Even then, it wasn't easy.

What is a walkimg foot machine


A walking foot is a foot with feed dogs, or a similar fabric moving mechanism. This is useful when there are many layers of fabric or slick fabric. Then the top layer of fabric can be made to travel at the same rate as the lowest layer (the feed dogs) or an slightly different rate. Then the fabric layers will stay even for the entire length of the seam.

A walking foot sewing machine has this feature built in. Thus you don't need to adjust extra hardware to keep your fabric aligned. (On some, specific feet are needed to use the feature. However, it is easier to adjust than the separate walking foot that I have for my older Singer sewing machine.)

I hope this helps.

Oil it; wherever metal rubs on metal. Take apart the machine; where there are small holes in metal pieces, oil it.

Why would my Singer 6235 not feed the fabic:


h! there,
fabric moves forward when machine run due to movement of feed dogs,feed dog has a teeth, when your foot presser goes down attached to fabrics the pressure hold the fabric between pressure foot and feed dogs that why when machine run feed dogs pushed fabric when recieved stitch.try to check adjustment of feed dogs it maybe set at rest or neutral.reset it to upward towards needle.check also bobbins thread if accumulation was build up under feed dogs.regard and have a nice day.

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.
