Singer 6416 sewing machine

When my mom tries adjusting the needle position to either left, right or center the needle remains in the center. The only thing I have done at this time is the recommended cleaning because it hadn't been done in a long time. She doesn't use this machine very often.

Not familiar with this particular machine but make sure you have the needle all the way up. They won't change the position otherwise.

How to change needle position (left, right, center)


Which stitch are you using? As far as I can tell, the Stylist 7258 only allows you to change the needle position for straight stitches. If the machine is set to Pattern 00, press the right or left buttons from the 4 arrow keys in the manual setting arrows until the needle is in the desired position.

For all other stitches, the left/right arrows adjust the stitch width. This is described on page 30 (in English) of the manual. You can download the manual from the product page under the support tab: http://www.singerco.com/products/2101/7258-stylist#type-support . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/4951b452e963a8fe1dd1fd83fbac68a35df8cf19.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Why is needle hitting zipper foot on left side only?


When the needle is set on the center position, is it centered or is it slightly off center? If so, then the mechanism needs to be adjusted so that the needle is perfectly centered. When it is off-center, you will get the problem you are experiencing with hitting one side of the zipper foot. May want to take it in for service.

Sewing machine sews good in center needle position, why does it not stitch,when moving needle position to right f left?


Hopefully it is a bent needle. Replace the needle first. If that doesn't work you will need an adjustment made on the hook. That is when you will need to take your machine to the repairman.

I just had my 7470 serviced because the thread tension was messed up. Now as I'm sewing along, the needle will move from center position to left position by itself and then within a few stitched,


the gear or part that holds the needle position in place may either
be getting jarred or is worn,,
try using a different threadThe needle thread breaks
1. the needle thread is not threaded properly
2. The needle thread tension is to tight
3. The needle is bent or blunt
4. The needle is incorrectly inserted
5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew
6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing
7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle

also try adjusting the top thread tension
as far as the bright spot, the display could be going out.

sometimes the repair person does not check the machine to
see if the machine is working correctly, because they would have
to charge more and some don't so you have to bring the machine
back more often and that makes them more money.

Some machines are not designed to sew the straight stitch with the needle in the center position. Some are left or right position to do that and it is simply the way they were designed. Linda at Relics

Turn the big knob on the right of your Singer 1507 machine so that the vertical stitch line in the center. (Currently your machine most likely has the vertical stitch line to the left.) Don't push your needle manually; you will damage the needle.
