SOURCE: oUR Husqvqrna 5310 suddenly started sewing backwards

Problem is probably with the feed stepper motor or the reverse cams are locked. What happens when reverse button is activated. If no change it's probably the feed stepper motor. Suggest you take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
Good luck.

Sounds like your feed dogs are in the down position. Make sure they are in position "A" (see picture)

Also, make sure your length dial is set to a medium setting (Usually 1.5 - 3)

SOURCE: I have a singer 3343c

the presser foot only holds the fabric against the feed dogs in the needle plate area

check the feed dogs to see if there in the up position

if not there should be a nob in the feed dog area to move them up & down

on some models when you remove the extension table the nob is at the back

SOURCE: Brand new machine. Heavy Duty

Remove plate and place one drop of Zoom Sewing Machine Oil at the bottom left-hand side of race shuttle (you have to remove the plastic section - just unsrcrew with the flat silver thingy in your 4423 accessories. Don't get oil on plastic parts. Remove screws underneath of machine. Tip machine on it's side against a towel. Run machine slowly. Any moving part gets just one drop of oil and gears that look dry get Singer lubricant (Comes in a tube). Make sure you tighten screws, but don't tighten with too much force so you don't "strip" plastic. When sewing heavy fabrics, use Singer Style needles #2032/ 90/14 and 100/16. On TV they demonstrate heavy fabrics and knits with this "heavy duty" machine, I know, but you can bet, you need specific needles for specific jobs no matter if you have a home machine or even a metal industrial. Much success!

SOURCE: Singer 4423, timing out,what line up with what

I don't think it's a major timing issue, so don't panic. Take a look at your selected stitch pattern selector and set for straight stitch, and set Tension at 3-4. Width: 4. Length: 4. Make sure presser foot Down when you rethread machine so the tesion disks open up to locate thread. Always hold thread taut when "feeling" for tension slot. Insert new needle. Needle goes all the way up into needle clamp as far as it can possibly go, FLAT side needle toward needle bar and more rounded side needle facing you. Leave 6" tail. Hold thread toward you as you turn hand wheel toward you so needle can make a loop with bobbin thread. Make sure bobbin thread isn't hanging down on or across bobbin! Make sure thread in bobbin has wound evenly - good quality thread ideal! Clean bobbin area and feed dogs for broken, loose threads and lint. Always use needles appropriate size for weight of fabric. I suggest walking away from machine, taking deep, cleansing breadth, humming a favorite tune, then doing above and see how it goes! Soon your machine will be humming happily along with you. Hope these suggestions help. Jimmy

Why is the bobbin case on a Singer 4423.CL - Heavy Duty 4423 not working right?


If you've cleaned and oiled it, change the needle to see if it is catching in the wrong place and re-thread, of course. If none of that works, it's probably the timing ... find a good repair guy.

Singer 4423 is pulling the fabric with the needle still in it


The feed dogs are out of time, maybe a broken feed drive gear. Time to get it serviced.

Model 4423 singer stuck in reverse


Solution: Turn off machine. Turn stitch dial until you hear click on each stitch shown on dial. Set to straight stitch then and set stitch width to 6. try machine again being careful to put light force on the foot pedal so your not going full throttle. This is how I "de-confused" my Singer Heavy Duty 4423 when it got stuck on reverse. Hope this helps!

Brand new machine. Heavy Duty Singer 4423 I sew ripstop tarps including a double layer of grosgrain edging. After one tarp the machine has begun to squeak horribly with each stitch. Why? What can I do as...


I would suggest that the words "heavy duty" applied to a machine sold for less than $150 is probably taking a little bit of artistic licence.

Grosgrain edging is very stiff so you will probably need at least a 100 size needle for this and they may well go blunt pretty quickly. This could be the squeaking noise, needles will "pop" and squeak if they are blunt. Change the needle and see if it stops.

I would suggest that if you are doing straight stitching in large volumes for commercial purposes, this is not the right machine, you need something like a Singer 20U industrial machine, a good workhorse which will do straight and zig zag stitches.

I have one of these with a 3/4 hp motor in a table and it is so strong, great for sewing tents, horse blankets etc. We used it for attaching vinyl to 1/2" foam for ride-on tractor seats, something it did really well. Different needle system to domestic machines and can sew heavier gauge thread too.

Sorry, this probably isn't what you wanted to hear about your new machine. Try changing the needle and see if it stops the squeaks. But you may need to reconsider your choice of machine.
