I just looked at your manual on www.singerco.com and all I can see is that maybe, your chosen stitch length is not long enough, or your feed dogs are not up. Another possibility could be tangled thread or fabric is too slippery(try some tissue paper under fabric) check your needle size. If, you misplaced your manual it is free on the above website. Good luck, sometimes machines are just being ornery.

Needle bar does not move in zig zag mode on singer 457 stylist and will not move to full left with the position lever


Have you changed your presser foot over to the zig zag foot? On some machines it won't work correctly until you change to the correct presser foot.

The presser foot on my Singer Touch & Sew 756 is stuck in the up position. I can move the lever up and down but the presser foot will not move. Any suggestions.


Very common thing because the presser bar is always very tight in the housing, all you need to do is put some easing oil or wd40 on the bar and physically move the bar up and down and it will free off

I have a Singer Stylist 533 and the feed dog isn't working properly. It is not jammed because if I turn the handle to use the machine manually I can see it moving below the presser foot. However, once I...


This could be a couple things. First it could be your presser foot pressure is not high enough or the presser bar is sticking and not pushing on the fabric properly. Second it could be broken feed gears. To check this remove the needle and foot and place a finger on the feed dogs. Then turn the hand wheel and feel if the feed dogs are still moving with the pressure of you holding them down. If the stop moving the you most likely have a broken gear or two. The first problem could be resolved by adjusting the setting of the needle bar pressure or oiling the bar if sticking. The second one needs a sewing machine repair person,

I have a 9960 singer machine and am trying to use the buttonhole presser foot for the first time and I can not get it to sew T


the buttonhole foot snaps on to the presser bar, there's a little lever at the back of the presser bar that releases the foot, then put the buttonhole foot down on the needle plate & use the presser foot lifter (number 11) to lower the presser bar down onto the buttonhole foot & you'll hear a click sound when it snaps on & make sure to use the buttonhole lever(number 31) because the machine won't sew a buttonhole unless that lever is pulled down.

Singer 5050 sewing machine threads gathering under fabric and becoming knotted. how do i fix this


Try a new needle and rethreading. Check your threading by putting the presser foot up , then pull thead, should move smoothly, now put presser foot down, now pull, it should barely move. This usually seats the thread in the tension discs.

I just received a singer 4205 (inspiration) and the presser foot does not move back and forth to pull the material through the machine. It seems to be stuck. I am not a seamstress, but 3 other people...


It is not your presser foot, you must mean the feed dogs, they are what moves the fabric along. Clean and Lubricate your machine. Remove the bobbin case and clean it out. Replace your needle now Totally rethread the machine, according to your manual. Test the threading by putting the presser foot up, pull on top thread, it should pull smoothly, now put your presser foot down, the thread should barely move. This will seat the thread in the tension discs. By the way, try your tension on 3. Also, make sure that your presser foot is down before sewing. Always move the handwheel towards you, never away from you because you will mess up the timing. You will see your feed dogs move if you watch. Download a free copy of you manual at www.singerco.com and save it, plus enlarge the diagrams. If, that does not do the trick call Singer at 1-800-4singer.

Presser foot lever does not lift presser foot


If you can remove the cover on the left side you will see the presser foot bar. On the bar there will be a screw that may be loose. Turn the handwheel until the needle is all the way down and lift the foot manually until just before it makes contact with the needle clamp and tighten the screw on the presser foot bar.
That should do it.

The presser bar is not moving, there is a set screw that controls the presser foot height on the bar, it may be to tight. Take the side cover off, and look for the presser bar, the set screw unit should be facing you. Unscrew it and see if the presser bar handel will now move.

The presser bar height should be set at 7 mm. To make an adjustment loosen the set screw. From the top of the machine, press down firmly on the presser bar and then secure the set screw.
