How do I fix the timing on my Singer 7470 sewing machine?

I cleaned my sewing machine and now the bobbin thread won't catch. I called Singer Tech support and they said the timing was off. I'd like to try to fix it myself.

Here's how you set the timing od the Machine alright:
1. Take the side plate off, take the needle plate off.
2. Take the presser foot off, and put a new needle in the machine. 3. Make sure that the needle is in the lowest position and look at the needle bar for the two timing lines. Locate the top line.
4. Then, turn the handwheel toward you until the top line is where the bottom line was.
At this point, the tip of the hook should be directly in the scarf of the needle.
This should set the timing of the machine perfect....

I believe you have a broken gear. These are difficult to repair on your own.

Singer conferdence 7470 not sewing


Try a brand new needle. If that doesn't work, then the machine is most likely out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

I was sewing with my Singer Confidence 7470 when it suddenly would not pick up the bobbin thread. I changed the needle, re-threaded the machine, and checked that the bobbin case is clean and in correctly...


Yes, try looking very closely at the needle assembly. Make sure the new needle is loaded with the flat side against the arm that holds it. If the machine is only a few months old, it's probably under warrantee. There should be a number to call on the serial plate. If all else, call the store you purchased it from. Sometimes they have sales people who are well versed with their equipment and can help you but I bet the needle is facing the wrong direction when you replaced it. Find any broken pieces of needle and remove them too. Look with a flashlight. I hope this helps!

Sounds like your machine is off timing, When the machine is properly timed, you should see the hook passing behind the eye of the needle when the needle is on it's upward stroke. If this is not correct the machine will not pick up the bobbin thread. You may have to take it in for adjusting, unless your a bit machnical.

Is your buttonhole lever down by accident? If, that isn't it, it could be your timing is off. One other thing to try, is your needle all the way up in the shaft? I hope that it is something simple, call Singer at 1-800-4singer and maybe they will have quick fix because the timing is not a do it yourself job.

Bottom thread too loose; tried rethreading top thread, cleaning bobbin case, refilling bobbin, changing needle, adjusting top tension


Check for correct bottom thread tension.
It's provided by a flat spring on the bobbin holder.
When the bobbin is correctly installed, pulling on the thread
should meet with slight resistance, and the bobbin should spin without
trying to jump out of the bobbin holder.

Take the machine in for service by an authorized Singer tech.

Hitting the bobbin case may have knocked the timing off and the shuttle may have to be replaced.

Trying to fix this yourself may lead to more problems and additional expense.

Using Singer 7470 for the first time, and my bobbin thread is bunching terribly. There is a loud sound from the bobbin chamber, as if the mechanism is bouncing around??? How can I fix this bobbin issue?...


1. Take bobbin out and re-insert and thread.
If that dosen't work, try:
2. Take bobbin out and bobbin case, clean area and re-insert bobbin case and bobbin.
If that dosen't work, try:
3. Re-thread the top thread that goes to the needle. (Sometimes the thread dosen't hook to the "Thread take-up"(page 6 on manual). It pulls the bobbin thread and the bobbing becomes loose inside the bobbin case.
If that dosen't work, try:
4. Wind a new bobbin (Sometimes a bobbin might wind thread to lose) Do not wind thread to the edge of bobbin.
If that dosen't work, you should take it in to be serviced...Somenthing might become loose that only a technitian can correct.
Also check manual for troubleshooting.
Good luck.....
