How to remove the housing to change the light bulb iin a singer pixie plus


Most machines have a screw on the end or back that holds the end cap on that covers the bulb and mechanical parts. Sometimes they are hinged too. If the bulb is underneath in the middle then that may take a little bit more to get at it. I agree with Matty W too that Singer is really good at helping with fixing and replacing the bulb or other small fixes. I have done live one on one chats with them and they are very knowledgeable and patient. Good luck.

Singer sewing machine needle moving to the side after it's in the fabric for a zigzag stitch


If you can grab the hand wheel and move it right and left, then it probably needs a plastic collar that goes next to the left upper shaft bushing.
If not then the cam timing needs to be adjusted.

loosen the screw that holds the needle in place, pull the old one out, pay attention to which way the flat bit is facing, push the new needle in as far as it will go with the flat part facing the same way as the one you pulled out, tighten the screw and your done. The flat bit 9 times out

Warranty for singer 7436


When/Where did you buy the machine. Most machines these days only have a 90 warranty. Janome has a bit longer... then of course there's the warranty the seller may or may not sell you.

Personally? I would toss that Singer as far as I could then let the neighbor boys shoot at it. I'm sorry they just aren't made like they used to be and Singer is not well regarded by seamers anymore. Spend your $$$$ on a Janome or Babylock.

I purchased an older Singer Stylist zigzag model 457 sewing machine at a garage sale. It doesn't have the owners manual and the bottom thread gets all knotted up. It also is hard to feed the material...


I can definitely help you with the owners manual. Go to http://parts.singerco.com/IPinstManuals/457A_105_125_135_143A.pdf and you can download it direct from singer, no viruses, nothing. Just save it in Adobe format.

The bobbin thread problem is called a birds' nest and can be from a number of problems. First thing to do is to change your needle, especially if it was the one you bought the machine with. It may look perfectly straight to the naked eye. But it only needs to be a little bent to cause a problem. If this doesn't clear the problem up, make sure you're using a new bobbin, freshly wound. If the bobbin isn't wound properly or is an old bobbin that's slightly bent or not quite round, it'll cause problems, too. Finally, the machine may need a new bobbin casing. Do a google search for Singer sewing machine parts and search for a bobbin casing for a model 457. You'll remove the plate from the top of the machine CAREFULLY (the screws are small, so be careful not to lose them!). Take pictures if you need to with your cell phone so you can see what to do when you need to put the new casing in. Bobbin casings are usually $25-30. This is the last thing, and I would only do this if you see that thread is catching on something in the bobbin area when you're moving the wheel by hand.

I've tried to be clear on the last bit, but I realize it can be a little awkward. If you need any other help with that, please leave me a comment back. It goes straight to my email, so I'll see it quick and will get back to you right away. The manual doesn't help a lot with your bobbin problem, so I'll do whatever I can to help you through it and get you sewing. Good for you for finding a great garage sale find!
