You probably need to clean out the bobbin case area and then check your needle to see if it's bent. I know when I sew very thick fabric or many layers... it sometimes bends the needle. Also make sure you're putting the presser foot down when you sew. Then see what happens. Let me know if any of this works or if you've already resolved your problem.

Feet won't feed the material.


Are you using a sewing machine? First have a look at the type of material you are using then see if you have an adjuster on the foot dog. My machine has 3 settings for thick, medium and slippery material. Sorry don't know all the terms as I have just started sewing. If that doesn't work it might be a good idea to take it in for a service.

Why do stitches bunch when using walking foot on 3 layers of quilting fabric?


make sure that the thread tensions are correct for the thickness of material
remember that only the bottom foot walks and draws the material through so it may need a help and be pulled as it sews.
I find that women in sewing shops just love to talk about problems and how they can help so find a shop and discuss any problems with them

Machine is behaving as if not getting any power, but light is on. Press foot pedal and absolutely nothing happens


There is probably a bad connection in your foot pedal. Try moving it around with your hands at the contact points while pressing to activate. If it goes when you are shifting its position then it needs to be fixed or replaced.

Probably too thick to feed without dislodging the bobbin case, causing the error message.

Foot pedal not working


Well, you are definitely getting power from the electric plug in.

Let's do some diagnostic work. Do you hear anything when you press the foot pedal? Any hum? Did you happen to leave it in bobbin winding mode?

your machine doesn't have a "sew" button for use without the pedal. So please rotate the hand wheel toward you as you press the pedal. Did the motor take over and sew?

If you know someone with a meter... have them test the pedal. (they will place probes on/in the part that plugs in which tests for shorts, etc.) If that tests ok... then we know it's something more than the pedal and it will need servicing by a Singer Tech.

Sewing machine does not sew. Finished sewing something, turned it off, then turned it on a few hours later and it will not work. Light is on but nothing happens when the foot pedal is pressed. Took apart...


Call Singer at 1-800-4singer and ask for their advice, you do not want to void your warranty with not going to an authorized repair service if it comes to that. Good luck

Singer 7436 beeps - not working


Check to be sure the buttonhole lever is in the up position and the presser foot is down. Check feed dogs to be sure they are in the up position.
