You could buy a generic thread stand aerial to overcome this problem.

These items are targetted at machine embroidery enthusiasts using multiple thread colours but could be easily modified to hold your 4 cones.

Or try www.sewingpartsonline.com and see if they carry this part.

I love my 334D and have paid for major repairs to it rather than replace with the lighter weight new models I found available.

How to thread on a singer 4411. Thank you


To thread the upper thread, make sure that the needle bar is fully up, using the hand wheel. Put the thread spool on the spool pin and secure it with the spool holder. Use the end of the spool holder that is closest to the spool size. Bring the thread through first guide to the left of the spool holder. Slide it past and behind the guide before pulling it into the guide. Then bring the thread to the pre-tension spring. Similarly, the thread goes behind the spring and then comes forward. Next bring the thread down through the channel and up through the adjacent one further to the left. It helps to hold the thread between the spool and the thread guide. Once you bring the thread up through the second channel bring it from right to left through the slotted eye of the take-up lever. Bring the thread down and through the horizontal thread guide, the thin guide clamp needle and to the needle. Thread the needle from front to back.

The manuals for most Singer sewing machines are available from the manufacturer's site: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual for the 4411 is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1230_4411_heavy_duty_esf.pdf . See page page 16 (page 23 of the PDF) for pictures of the guides.

I hope this helps.

Sewing machine design


It sounds like the spool cap is broken or defective. It should fit snugly on the spool pin. If it is constantly falling off, then try finding a replacement. The horizontal spool pin design helps the machine pull the thread off the spool because the thread spool does not need to spin. The added pressure of spinning a thread spool contributes to tension issues (especially if you are using large thread spools that are so common now days).

On new machines, frequently the thread cutter is on the back of the presser foot lifter.

The thread guide above the needle is usually threaded from the left side because the thread tends to be pulled toward the right.

Unfortunately, what you are experiencing are pretty much common functions with most newer sewing machines, so even changing machines may not result in any greater degree of satisfaction.

Need to put bobin in a merritt 4530


Flip the presser switch up to raise the presser foot. Turn the hand wheel counterclockwise until the needle is in its highest position.
  • 2Hold the hand wheel in place with your left hand while turning the hand wheel knob counterclockwise with your right hand to loosen the hand wheel knob.
  • 3Place the desired spool of thread on the spool pin so that the pin fits all the way through the hole in the center of the spool. Put the spool holder onto the end of the spool pin that is sticking through the spool of thread and press firmly to ensure that the spool holder keeps the spool in place.
  • 4Grasp the end of the thread and hold it taut between the thumb and index fingers of both hands. Snap the taut section of thread into the thread guide post located to the left of the spool pin.
  • 5Pull the end of the thread gently. Wrap the thread around the bobbin winder tension disk near the left front on top of the machine, starting at the side of the tension disk facing you and wrapping around in a clockwise direction.
  • 6Poke the end of the thread through the small hole in the bobbin from the inside out so that the loose end of the thread sticks through the top of the bobbin. Put the bobbin on the spindle, or bobbin winder, and gently slide the bobbin winder to the right.
  • 7Hold the loose end of the thread in place while pressing down on the foot pedal to start the machine. Hold the foot pedal down until the bobbin is as full as desired. The machine will automatically stop once the bobbin has reached capacity.
  • 8Cut the loose end of the thread using scissors. Slide the bobbin winder to the left and remove the bobbin. Hold the hand wheel in your left hand and tighten the hand wheel knob with your right hand by turning it clockwise

    Singer 2517c -I need Threading instructions please. Also the top thread is loose -how do I fix that


    Lift the needle to the highest point by turning the handwheel. Lift the pressure foot to release the tension on the system. Place the spool on the spool pin and put the spool cap on to hold the spool firmly.

    Next bring the thread to the thread guide and snap it into the guide. Then slide the thread under the guide and through the slot (use one hand). Next lead the thread down on the right of the tension knob and up on the left. This puts the thread in the tension discs. Next slip the thread into the take up lever. (Bring the thread to the top of the lever and back towards the machine. Then slide the thread into the slot on the take up lever and then back towards you.

    Next lead the thread through the next pair of guides. One is on the machine below the take up lever; the other is attached to the needle holder.

    Finally thread the needles from front to back.

    First check if there is a slight drag on the upper thread when you pull it through the machine (pulling it under the foot of the machine). Move the tension knob to the right to increase the tension. When you stitch a test piece, your top thread is visible on the bottom of your sewing thread, rotate the tension knob to the right by half a turn (get the dot closer to a higher number).

    If there is no change in the tension as you turn the knob, take the machine for service. The springs in the tension system may need to be replaced.

    The manual is available from Singer here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html . Enter only the 2517 model (leave off the c). A pdf is available for free; there is also an option to order a hard copy. A picture of the threading route is on page 28 of the pdf (page 26 as the manual is numbered).

    I hope this helps.

    How do i thread my needle with the singer handy stitch?


    1. Loosen needle screw & insert needle with shank's flat side facing front of machine. Push needle in all the way, then tighten screw to hold needle in place.
    2. Install a fully wound bobbin by loosening bobbin nut & placing bobbin on top. Re-attach bobbin nut & tighten. If standard thread spool will be used, then attach spool pin to bobbin shaft & place thread spool onto shaft. Attach white spool cap on end of thread spool, then tighten. Bobbin/spool should unwind facing forward toward needle.
    3. Bring end of thread through thread guides & over tension control. Pass end of thread through needle eye, from back to front, & pull it out about two inches.
    4. A spring pushes pressor foot onto fabric that is being sewn, so lift pressor foot & place fabric underneath.
    5. Turn large handwheel on side of machine (handwheel can be turned in either direction) to raise needle arm to its highest position.
    6. Holding the Handy Stitch in place with your right hand, press on power switch & begin sewing. Guide fabric (being sewn) with your left hand.
    7. To end this sewing session, turn off power. Turn handwheel to raise needle to its highest position. Carefully pull out about three inches of thread through needle & snip, then lift pressor foot to remove fabric. Turn fabric over & loop needle threader through last stitch. Place end of thread from underside through eye of needle threader, & pull to loop through. Pull to tighten and snip end of thread.

    I have a Bernette 50 sewing machine....i was sewing velcro....the screw assembly on the post where the needle goes into fell off and the thread guide fell off it....i can't tell if it is broken or just...


    That can be tricky. Some thread guides and needle clamps have to be assembled and then slid up into place with the needle screw holding it together. Some have a set screw to hold it.

TTN tension, take up, needle.
    Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
    (To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.
