With ANY machine you have to have thread on a bobbin coming from the underside of the cloth. Did you check the bobbin to make sure there's thread on it?

SOURCE: Sewing machine straight stitch is not straight

Hey. It's full out possible that you have it on the right setting...but concider this - the switcher inside the sewing machine could be broken (ie. It's moving to different stitches - but not the one you have the outside set for)

It happened to me (pc o crap singer model)

SOURCE: Machine not sewing

Make sure you have threaded the machine from right to left, it sounds like the needle thread is trapped under the lower looper thread and cannot form a stitch.........start the threading over from scratch like this:

  1. Lower Looper
  2. Upper Looper
  3. Left Needle
  4. Right Needle
Is there a diagram for how to thread on the inside of the door ?

Follow that slowly and carefully to make sure you have not missed any thread guides on the way, as each one needs to be followed through to ensure correct tension and thread progression.

If you are certain that all threaded correctly, did you have a fabric jam and pulled it loose ? If so, the timing may well be affected.

Post an update and we'll get this right.

SOURCE: Top thread stitches correctly but bottom thread loops.

FYI---- Loops on the bottom-- problem is in the threading..
Loops on the top--- problem is with the bobbin.

Singer 4530- stitch length adjustment not working. How do I fix?


Since you indicated the machine has been cleaned and lubed, that is probably not the problem unless the stitch length lever is sticky or the feed dogs are hanging up somewhere. Suggest perhaps directing heated air from a handheld hair dryer into the internal mechanics (focus on the stitch selector lever and the feed dog mechanics) and see if that loosens anything.

Will not sew decorative stitches


Hi Anonymous, Either it's a bottom end machine with no variations in stitches possible or the selector mechanism is shot. If it's the latter then I think that you need specialist help to sort it out whether by reinstalling the software or replacing the selector mechanism.

My handheld machine won't sew any fabric.the thread just flaps in and out of the fabric but its not sewing the fabric


Sounds like it is not catching the bobbin thread which is how it makes a stitch. Try re-threading top and bottom threads. Or perhaps your tension is far too loose. Adjust tension higher or lower to test.

Refuses to sew on thick fabric why?


Here's a pdf of your manual Singer owns White's manuals now.

Typically you need a longer stitch to sew thicker fabrics, have you tried that yet?

Like all computer things it might be for ever wondered about but do this... UNPLUG the machine from the wall outlet and let it sit for 20 minutes. When you replug it, it should be fine.

Machine will not zigzag


The guy is right, dust kills the moving parts. try oiling the shaft that holds the needle up about 1/2 way and then run on straight stitch with no thread to work in oil, do this several times till you feel that it runs smoothly and you have a little movement side to side as this is necessary for your zig-zag. if that does not work it may be a cam or belt in the top part that needs replacing and you will need the repair to tell you that. I asked them to give me a quote before any work was done so I knew what I was up against. I love my machine so it was worth the 200.00 to get the parts replaced. It will sew anything cause it is a older model with metal rather than plastic parts. hope this helps good luck
