Singer 4530- stitch length adjustment not working. How do I fix?

Since you indicated the machine has been cleaned and lubed, that is probably not the problem unless the stitch length lever is sticky or the feed dogs are hanging up somewhere. Suggest perhaps directing heated air from a handheld hair dryer into the internal mechanics (focus on the stitch selector lever and the feed dog mechanics) and see if that loosens anything.

1 Answer

My stitch length varies whilst I'm sewing. Why does this happen and what can I do to prevent this from happening?

Is the stitch selector set to a straight stitch or is it possibily in another stitch pattern but with the width turned down to zero?

If machine is set on a straight stitch but is giving varying stitch length for no reason then it could be that the feed dogs are not functioning correctly, could be out of time with the needle or very worn. Or are you pulling the fabric through rather than letting it feed through. Also check the pressure being delivered by the foot pressure if the machine has a variable adjustment for this. It may have just been turned down for very heavy fabric feeding and needs to be turned up to normal setting again.

Feed dogs can wear - replacement parts may be available. Just remember to search under either Janome or New Home as I believe New Home was bought out by Janome some years ago. Certainly New Home was a common brand in UK in the 80's.

I hope that this helps you out.

Loose bottom stitch

If you feel adventureous you can take the bobbin case apart and make sure that it is clean and thread runs smooth thruugh it. This is delecate to do and takes younger eye's than mine and do this on a clean table covered in a plain cloth so you don't loose parts and don't force anything when putting back together it is stanliss steel but will break and screws can strip. If you have been sewing any thing that has any glue or is dirty you could have a build up that is draging the thread. Sometimes just a good cleaning in warm mildely soapy water will fix this.If tightening your upper tention helps some this is a good indacator that this is the problem.
