What is causing tension and needle position problems?


If the machine is new, it is probably still under warranty. Contact the manufacturer.

How to release the stuck steam button in Shark iron-61468-10?


If the steam button is got stuck in the down position in your iron then follow this procedures to release the stuck button:--
1) First of all pull the button up. You may have to coax it up; you can pry it back to the up position with a needle. Grasp it firmly and pull it straight off (it is fitted in place by friction only).
2) Below the button is a stem that operates the valve, gently pull it back up with a pair of needle nose pliers (careful - the stem is made up of plastic material).
3) Then replace the button (align the stem into the hole on the bottom of the button to its exact position. Cycle the button a few times with water in the reservoir. You should be back in the ironing business now! :)
It seems like it sticks when the iron is left unused condition for a period of time; as if the valve gets stuck up when dry. leave water in it this time, although the instruction manual says not to. But leaving the water in it may not let it get dry.
This will help.good luck.

How do i set timing on singer 4423


unscrew the bottom and left side of the machine and : Set the pattern selector dial to " zig zag".
Turn the stitch width dial to "6", Set the needle bar at its lowest point when
it swings to the left. Place clamp around
the needle bar, tighten its screw (a) but still
allowing movement.
- Set the timing gauge (4 mm) on the
needle bar so that piston touches bottom
of needle bar cradle without forcing and
tighten screw by hand.
- Turn the handwheel gently towards you
until gauge stops at 4 mm.
Turn the hand wheel until the shuttle hook
holder point is on the right side of needle,
the distance between needle hole and it
should be 0.5~1.0 mm.
- If the distance is incorrect, loosen the
screws of lower shaft gear , and
adjust shuttle hook to correct timing, and
tighten the screw.
It's not that complicated and, if you don't have gouges then, you will need a lot of patience. Good luck :)

The steam button is stuck on (pushed in) but there's no steam.


follow this steps. God bless you
Clean an iron:
  1. Unplug the iron and make sure it is cool before cleaning.
  2. Use a toothpick or pipe cleaner to remove buildup in the steam vents, making sure the debris doesn't fall into the vents.
  3. Use a fine sewing needle to carefully clean the spray nozzle of mineral deposits.
  4. To flush sediment from a steam iron, pour 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup vinegar into the water tank. Place the iron on a rack over a broiling pan and set the iron to steam until the tank runs dry. Repeat if necessary. Or follow the instructions for using a commercial iron cleaner.
Service the steam and spray mechanism:
  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a fine sewing needle to unclog the steam valve assembly. Also, check the valve spring and replace it if it is broken or has lost tension.
  3. If the spray pump is accessible, remove it and check for leaks by placing the spray tube in water and squirting the pump. Clean or replace as needed.
Clean a metal soleplate:
  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a sponge and commercial soleplate cleaner or baking soda and water to remove dirt buildup on the soleplate. Rinse well with water and dry. Don't use harsh abrasives or immerse an electric iron in water.
  3. Use very fine steel wool (0000) or an emery cloth to remove scratches and burns on the soleplate, then clean the soleplate.

Singer Professional 5 keeps breaking needles


This should be in the sewing machine area. If you just paid $150 to have this repaired and it's still not right. Take it back and insist that they fix it properly at their expense.

The timing on sergers is pretty complex I would not attempt it myself.

The rocker button to enable steam to flow seems stuck. It will not rock.


The stem rod for the steam control is choke or faulty. These prevent the water going onto the sole plate that why no steam.It is possible that there is dirt that has accumulated into the stem of the steam button and is sticking the button. It is better to remove the lid and make a good cleaning to free the movement. use good spray of jet air, use WD40 to remove dirt and free.---------------- Pull the button up. You may have to coax it up; You can pry it back to the up position with a needle. Grasp it firmly and pull it straight off (it is fitted in place by friction only). Below the button is a stem that operates the valve, gently full it back up with a pair of needle nose pliers (careful - the stem is plastic). Replace the button (align the stem into the hole on the bottom of the button. Cycle the button a few times with water in the reservoir.It seems like it sticks when the iron is left unused for a period of time; or the dirt get collected under the button.As if the valve sticks when dry. You can leave some water in it when not in use. --------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I am unable to stop the steam at the iron. The trigger doesn't appear to be stuck.


I would first try with household vinegar (empty as much water as possible) and if that doesn't work to free the valve, then something more aggressive containing acid like any of the Lime Away type of lime/rust removers. If it is still stuck, you may have to bet the iron hot to make the acid more effective. If using other than vinegar, I wouldn't advise allowing anyone to breath the vapors; do this in a utility room or basement.

That trigger probably acts on a needle valve that controls the flow of water to the point at which it is turned to steam and it may simply be too contaminated with lime buildup to slip back into the valve body.
