SOURCE: FEW STITCHES DROP IN BOBBIN

Dropped stitches troubleshooting:
1>change to a new proper needle (proper needle means quilting needles for free motion, stretch needle for knits, leather needle for leather, microtex needle for micro fabrics.....etc.) of proper size. Most sewers never need a needle smaller then an 80/12 when sewing. Smaller needles bend more easily causing more problems.
2>If a new needle doesn’t fix the problem, remove parts from bobbin case area (as best as easily allowable) and clean out all the lint thoroughly, and oil with 2-3 drops of oil where friction occurs (turn hand wheel and look for rubbing)
3>If still skipping, try a different spool of thread (Yes, thread can caused skipped stitches, not common but I see it).
4>If you haven’t solved it yet, sounds like you could need to make a lower level adjustment like hook timing.
Hook Timing:
To time the machine, you want the tip of the hook to pass just over the top of the eye of the needle when the needle is in the left most or right most position depending on which side the eye of the needle will be higher

I have a Singer Confidence 7469Q Sewing Machine. It just stopped sewing, makes a beeping noise when i push foot pedal. Can you please help me? Thanks


Something is not in the correct position to sew...perhaps the presser foot is not down, the feed dogs, etc. Check to make sure you do not have a stitch (like zig=zag) selected that the presser foot or needle plate cannot accommodate.

sounds like the new top tension dial is not working either
there could be something wrong with the computer part of the machine

Model 4423 singer stuck in reverse


Solution: Turn off machine. Turn stitch dial until you hear click on each stitch shown on dial. Set to straight stitch then and set stitch width to 6. try machine again being careful to put light force on the foot pedal so your not going full throttle. This is how I "de-confused" my Singer Heavy Duty 4423 when it got stuck on reverse. Hope this helps!

I have a Singer 327K that stitches three or four good stitches and then stops completely stitching


it's very possible that when the needle broke the machine went out of time & would have to be retimed at a sewing machine shop

We have a Touch & Sew 640 that we ARE trying to get running, and we need a manual, and specifically how do w thread the bobbin.


To wind the bobbin, select straight stitch, thread the machine up as normal making sure the presser foot is up, open the slide plate, push the little button over to raise the winder, take the thread and wind it round the presser foot screw a few times, press on the foot control slowly and the bobbin will wind, when you have enough, stop, close the slide plate to drop the winder down, pull the threads to the back and start sewing. for manuals try www.tandtrepair.com

i spoke with support and they tell me that this is a threading issue. pull the thread back and forth, like flossing, under the plastic plate on top so the thread clicks into place. then procede with threading.
