Clean the bobbin case area thoroughly, and probably the feed dogs, too. Start all seams by holding the top and bobbin thread ends together behind the presser foot for the first few stitches. If you have lost your manual, pick up a new one, free, at http://www.singerco.com

Turned machine on, started to sew(about 4"), machine beeped, screen started flashing off & on, then it went off. Will not restart. Tried a new cord and that wasn't the problem


Look at your seam. If you have a bunch of balled up thread underneath the seam, part of the problem is operator error. Always always grasp the thread end while beginning the seam. I suspect that the thread gut bunched up under the material and caught up in the bobbin/shuttle area.

Remove the fabric, unplug the machine... get into the bobbin area, remove the bobbin, and if necessary clean threads caught up in the bobbin race/shuttle. reassemble and replace the bobbin... turn on the machine. Try again.

C4 error code singer 5400 sew mate


I found out that I had to re thread and put the tension on the #5. That fixed it for me. Try that and see if it helps.

My new Singer Stylist 7258 keeps getting a message code C4 and I can't find anything wrong with it. Please advise.


I looked in my manual, it says that C4 means that the thread is tangled or there bobbin was interrupted forcibly. Turn off and totally rethread your machine with presser foot up, insert a new needle and try again. Do this test, with the presser foot up, pull top thread, it should move easily, now lower presser foot, pull thread, it should barely move. This should seat the thread in the tension discs properly. I have this same machine, and love it.

Hi I have a brand new machine just out of the box and I can't get the machine to sew. The thread from the bottom is bunching up and getting the machine to stop and code c4 displays.... maybe...


It is in your top threading. Totally rethread, with the presser foot up, new needle, (flat side faces to the rear of machine and the other one may have a burr on it), now with the presser foot still up, pull your top thread, it should feed smoothly, then put the presser foot down, pull thread again, it should barely move. This should seat your thread, I am not sure what c4 means but more than likely a threading error message, tangled thread etc. Good luck, next time state your brand and model.
