First, make sure you have the bobbin placed correctly in the bobbin case. There should be a diagram showing the correct placement and thread path. Your upper tension should be set at "3." Then be sure the needle is inserted correctly...the groove should be toward the front of the machine. And just to be sure, recheck the upper threading. Sometimes one missed little thread guide will cause the problem you're describing. I hope this helps and that you can get your machine running again!

I don't think that you do have it set up correctly, try again. Make sure that you have the path right, go around the little button and out again, then make sure that you have it pushed to the right and you hold the thread end to get started. Another thing to make sure is that you have the thread unwinding the right way. I had a student that had it unwinding with no resistance and couldn't figure out what was wrong and that was it. I know it sounds crazy but it happened, just the same. If that doesn't work, call Singer in the morning, 1-800-4singer and report it right away so if it is defective you can get a new machine. It is very hard to diagnose without actually seeing it, I hope that I am right and you can get it going because it looks like a nice machine. You can download your manual for free, at www.singerco.com under support, and enter 7470, also go under customer resources and look at operation basics. Sorry, this is so long but I want you to be able to start sewing and having fun.

It should be under warranty, take it to where you bought it, if after trying a different electrical outlet, and making sure that the cord is plugged in correctly, it still does not turn on, You could have a defective cord.

there will be a programme function that you will need to go through, probably entering a numeral for each letter you want stitched, then probably pressing a memory key, you should end up with a sequence of letters on the screen, you'll need to then press the foot pedal to stitch it out.

I need a repair manual for a Singer Confidence 7470 machine.


Repair/Service Manuals are difficult (if not impossible) to find because they are provided by the manufacturer to technicians. You may find one for sale somewhere, ie eBay, but don't be surprised if there isn't one available.

Hi, I have a singer confidence 7470 sewing machine and the needle keeps hitting the bottom of the bobbin. I need to know how I can adjust the needle.


Try a brand new needle. If the old one is bent, that could be why it is striking. If the new needle doesn't resolve the issue, the machine most likely has a timing issue. You can search for multiple web sites and videos for discussions and instructions for sewing machine timing issues. Or you can take it for service.

Singer confidence 7470 while sewing the bobbing lifts up and makes a clanking noise the faster you sew. Any suggestions to this problem please?


It sounds like the bobbin is stretch. I fix mine taking a little screw driver (the one that comes with the machine) and turn the little bobbin case screw a tad to adjust the size of the bobbin carriage. Does the sound comes from the upper side of the machine or the under (bobbin) side of the machine? Did you oiled it correctly?

The machine will feed the material you only need to guide it gently and it will sew the letters sideways.
