Question about Singer Vacuums

I just bought the Singer 1409. The needle is off center to the left. So far off I cannot use the zipper foot. Is there way to adjust to center or do I need to exchange the machine for another one?

If, it is like my Brother machine (CS6000) the needle is set to the left, I have to move it with the button. See, if yours is like that, If not, call Singer at 1-800-4singer Monday at 9am and ask them what is the thinking that decided this so that you cannot even use a zipper foot? Maybe, there is a trick that they do not make clear in their manual. Very strange.

Can not catching the bobbin tread at the bottom


The bobbin may be in backwards
the needle is not the correct one for the machine
the needle isn't correctly seated in the needle clamp
the machine is a little bit out of time.
Remember to hang on to the needle thread when you're trying to pick up the bobbin thread
Turn the handwheel in the direction that would advance the fabric from the front to the back of the machine
make sure the bobbin-winding spindle has been pushed back to the left for sewing
make sure your needle is inserted correctly as far as it will go with the flat side facing back
and that the upper tension disks of your machine are threaded correctly.
Make sure the presser foot is up when seating the thread through the upper tension.
Turn the hand wheel (TOWARDS YOU ONLY) never turn the hand wheel away from you and hold the needle thread lightly. .
pull the loop up and then pull both threads (top and bobbin) under the foot and toward the back of the machine.
Also could be a timing problem

My Futura 900 machine is locked up tighter than a drum. How can I fix it?


this should be in sewing not vacuums. Did you find the bit of needle that broke off? It might still be in causing problems. turn machine upside down to free any bits that might be hanging about.

7467S sewing machine beeps four time and won't let me sew


Hi! Probably too late to help the original asker, but I have this same machine and was having the exact same problem. 4 beep error message, but mine would not sew at all. Found this question through a google search, but no answer. But I figured it out! I had left the buttonhole lever down!! (Facepalm) I hope this is helpful to future googlers with a similar problem.

This sounds like a timing issue. You need a professional.

When in the center needle position is selected, the needle is not centered, it is left of center. When the right needle position is selected, the needle sits only slightly to the right of center. How can...


Make sure machine is set for regular zigzag stitch and not a fancy zigzag stitch, and rotate it by hand at least two full revolutions in the normal direction of rotation to make sure it is settled in to the regular zigzag stitch. Now set the stitch width to maximum width and slowly rotate it by hand, watching the needle. Does the needle strike the top of the foot at the extreme left or right? (and this is the slotted zigzag foot, right?) If not, you are good to go. If the needle does hit the top of the foot squarely, do make sure that the foot is mounted correctly and change the needle, making sure it is the correct size and that it is inserted all the way and facing the right direction. It is somewhat unlikely that the left to right position of the needle bar needs adjusting.

What year is my singer sewing machine? AH251729? how do I purchase parts for it, like the zig zag attachment?


The Singer vintage machine site indicates that the AH251729 was made in 1947 in Elizabeth, NJ. For details see http://www.singermachines.co.uk/faq/tell-sewing-machine-age-from-two-letter-serial-number/ .

Look on the front of your sewing machine and locate the model number of the machine. Go to http://www.singerco.com/support/replacement-parts-chart and locate your model number. (Use the drop down menu and locate the group. Press Go and then find the pdf with the correct model parts list.) You can look up the exact part number and order them from the Singer Service Center online.

Alternatively, you may be able to find them at any Singer Authorized retailer. Just look at your machine and determine the type of shank that connects foot to the machine. (High Shank and Slant are common Singer foot designs on older machines.) Get a zigzag foot for Singer machines with that design. (If they don't have that, you can probably get a current foot and an adapter. We got an overedge foot and the high slant foot adapter for my Singer sewing machine (purchased in 1969) in the 1980s.)

I hope this helps.

I have a singer 600E touch and sew. I accidently took out the bobbin case and can't seem to get it back in. Can you please tell me how? Thanks


Open the slide plate, and remove the needle plate.The needle plate should be raised by a lever on the right hand side of the bed.Move it to the left, then raise the needle or take it out.It is also easier if you remove the sewing foot.Once you have the slide plate moved towards you you will see a black piece of metal in the front right corner of the bobbin area.Lift it up and slide it to the right.Position the bobbincase with the metal flap that locks the bobbin in towards you so when you lift it up it is on the end closest to you.Make sure the bobbin case is in the groove of the hook(the round thing that spins when you turn the handwheel)once you have the bobbin case in position you bring the black metal pieceover to the left and it will drop down to secure the bobbincase.Turn the hand wheel towards you the bobbincase should stay in place and the hook should turn around it.If it turns smoothly replace the needle plate,close the slide plate,screw the foot back on and replace the needle.You are done. www.sewvac.com

I have a Singer Imperial sewing machine, the bobbin winds in the machine, no manual with it. I have been trying to figure out how the bobbin is supposed to wind, I got it to do it one time trough trial and...


Does the bobbin have a metal "peak" on it? If so, drop it in the machine with the peak up. Slide the cover only about half way till the 2 arrows on the left match up. Thread the top as normal, put the machine in straight stitch. Thread the needle, then put thread under the foot and wrap thread around the post on the left. Leave foot up. Hold onto the end of the thread and start your machine. The bobbin should be winding now. After a few wraps you can let go of the thread and it should have broken off as you continue winding till the bobbin is full.

Hi I have been lucky to have been given a Huskystar 224 which I am delighted with but the person who had it before me has lost the Overcast foot. Zipper foot. Blind hem foot. Transparent...


Oh yeah, the overcast, zipper, blind hem, and button foot are widely available - as are lots of other fun feet (such as rolled hemmers, roller, teflon, fringe, pintuck, cording, pearls/piping, felling, flower stitching, walking, freemotion quilting, you name it.) You just need to look for low shank attachments - that's what the 224 takes. Congrats on lucking out with such an amazing machine! As for the automatic buttonhole foot, I did see one on Amazon (search 'low shank buttonhole foot") that would probably work, but haven't tried that one so I don't know for sure. Happy sewing. :)
