SOURCE: Using Singer 7470 for the first time, and my

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.....

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!

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.

Adjust timing


Presuming your needle is clamed in fully up position & is not needle bar height problem,this needle/hook timing should get your local sewing machine technician to get it adjusted correctly.

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.

Bobbin thread is loose


Lift the presser foot and pull out 8" of thread. Lower the presser foot and try sewing.

If this does not solve the problem the timing may need adjusting and this should be done by a Singer repair service.

My singer 7470 is skipping stitches on the left hand side ie. if im doing letters it misses the bottom 1/3rd. and other wider patterns misses about 1 in 12 ? i have cleaned bobbin case and it has obviously...


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.
