You have to unscrew the screw for the presser foot first. The walking foot will then fit. Use the same screw to attach the walking foot. Before you insert the screw, take the white handle on the walking foot and slide it on the screw arm for the needle. Now tighten the screw.

SOURCE: singer 2010 doesn't want to stop

I have a Singer Merritt 4530.  I don't know if the foot pedal works the same way on your model, but on mine it is held together not by screws or latches, but simply by white plastic rods that serve as hinges.  These rods have a hole drilled in their center, presumably so some special tool can be used to pull them out.  Lacking a special tool, I glued a nail into the hole, and once the glue dries you can pull the nail and pull the rod out with it.  The rod is about an inch long and held in place merely by friction - no glue or screw threads.  Once one rod is removed, you should be able to slide the pedal off of the rod on the other side, though that might have only worked because some of the plastic housing was cracked on mine.  If you don't want to take the time to test that, just glue a nail into both rods and pull them both out.
Once you get the pedal open, mine had a giant white cylinder that looks kind of like a battery or a fuse.  This thing was getting very hot the longer the pedal was left plugged in.  I read on many web sites that this object can cause overheating or short circuit the pedal so it's always sewing.  It's called a suppressor and can be safely thrown away.  I haven't found an explanation for precisely what it does or why it can be safely thrown away, but I theorize it's a surge suppressor and that most modern wiring isn't going to surge too much.  I got rid of it and the pedal still works and doesn't overheat.  It may be safest to plug the machine into a surge-protected power strip once the suppressor is gone - just my theory.

I have a Singer Confidence 7469Q Sewing Machine. It just stopped sewing, makes a beeping noise when i push foot pedal. Can you please help me? Thanks


Something is not in the correct position to sew...perhaps the presser foot is not down, the feed dogs, etc. Check to make sure you do not have a stitch (like zig=zag) selected that the presser foot or needle plate cannot accommodate.

Error code & would not sew after 2 uses.

Got this as a Christmas gift. Have used it twice since then for little things. Seemed to be fine. Decorative stitches worked and the straight stitches turned out good too. But didn't last. Just took it out to use on a bigger project and it just stopped sewing. The foot pedal wouldn't work at all. The back stitch button would sew though. If you tapped the pedal aggressively at times it would delay and then jump forward 3 stitches and then display the C3 error code saying the foot pedal was disconnected, which it clearly wasn't. Tried the Singer CS line. Was caller number 20, was on hold for 40 mins when I finally got down to caller number 4. All of a sudden the operator hung up the call and stated "their offices are now closed." I was furious. Needles to say, it went back to WalMart and I won't be buying another one.

My brand new Singer 7463 will not sew, even though the lights, stitch settings, and everything else are completely fine.


The foot pedal is just a variable resistor to give you speed control of the motor
You say the machine is new so it will still be under warranty
have a service technician check it out
It could be a faulty control pedal or leads or motor

Why does mi new sewing machine singer confidence 7463 not work


Check your manual for some troubleshooting tips. Something is not plugged in, or seated right, like the bobbin.

Foot pedal not working


Well, you are definitely getting power from the electric plug in.

Let's do some diagnostic work. Do you hear anything when you press the foot pedal? Any hum? Did you happen to leave it in bobbin winding mode?

your machine doesn't have a "sew" button for use without the pedal. So please rotate the hand wheel toward you as you press the pedal. Did the motor take over and sew?

If you know someone with a meter... have them test the pedal. (they will place probes on/in the part that plugs in which tests for shorts, etc.) If that tests ok... then we know it's something more than the pedal and it will need servicing by a Singer Tech.

I I have a Singer Confidence Stylist 7467S. Used the walking foot ONCE went to using the nomal stitching foot and now the pressure foot doesn't sit firmly on the fabric. It is as if the feed dogs


the best idea is to have the machine serviced, that way the feed dogs can be checked to see if there is something wrong with the feed dog switch or the feed dogs them selves
