Follow this link, click on the hook gear parts, and you will see a link to a video showing how to install these gears. I was able to follow this video and replace the gears on my old machine. For me it was do-able, but moderately difficult. If you think you're up to it, go for it. Replacing all for gears a t once will cost $50. (Singer 834).

    Actually, more like $30. I bought the Tri-flow greas and with shipping it came to about $50.
    their shipping is very reasonable.

How do I replace the hook assembly on Singer 2491 sewing machine


Are you sure that is the model number? I went to the Singer site, and they don't have it listed.

What makes you think it needs to be replaced? That part only very rarely needs replacement.

Do you prefer the singer stylist 518 or 834? I am looking at purchasing one of them


Here's a review for the 834.
http://zigzaggers.typepad.com/zigzaggers/2008/07/singer-stylist-834.html
Although it mentions you cannot raise and lower the feed dogs, you can change the throat plate to cover the feed dogs when you don't want to use them.
I couldn't find any reviews for the 518. I think the higher the number, the newer the machine although I may be wrong about that! I have a Singer Stylist 416.
I would look at how easy and expensive it is to get replacement parts for both machines before making your choice.
This is a good site for Singer Stylist parts. http://www.tandtrepair.com/index.html
Why don't you email the guy who runs it and ask him what his preference would be?
Hope this helps, Hazel

I have a Singer Stylist 834, have rethreaded and several times and it will not stitch. It acts like its sewing but there are no stitches. Please advise.


It sounds like your machine has a broken vertical shaft gear.

Open the slide plate and, while turning the handwheel, look to see if the hook is turning under the bobbin case. If not, take it to a repair person and it should cost around $100 to replace the gear.

Bobbit thread on my Singer Stylist 457 will not catch


Pull the slide plate open and watch the hook (the rotating part under the bobbin case). It should move around with no hitch.

If it does not turn, it has a broken gear. The model 457 has a vertical shaft gear that breaks and it's easy to replace.
