Question about Singer Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Singer 7258 (Stylist). I took it apart to adjust the timing, and now the feed dogs do not seem to be engaging. This machine does not have adjustable feed dogs. Any idea how to fix?

It is important to know how to time a sewing machine so I hope you did this part right. Anyway, the feed dogs aren't engaging gives me an indication that you have set it up for "rewind bobbin". Set your machine up for sew, not rewind.

Feeddog singer stylist 776 how would the feeddog gt lowered


Consult the owner's manual. There should be instructions for how to darn with your machine. It would require either the feature that lowers/raises the feed dogs or a cover plate that attaches over the feed dogs.

If your machine came with the cover plate accessory, and the feed dogs are not rising to feed the fabric, then I suspect the machine has not been cleaned & oiled in quite some time and perhaps the feed dogs have seized. When you run the machine (remove the needle and presser foot), watch if the feed dogs actually drop below the needle plate, move toward the front of the machine, then rise above the needle plate and move toward the back of the machine. This is a repetitive motion that actually pulls the fabric through the machine. If this is not happening with your machine, it needs service.

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.
