Usually the tension setting above and needle setting below, will cause this. If you work on these adjustments I think it will come together for you. Good Luck Friend.

If it worked before, and now it won't come on , I would check the on/off switch weather it be a foot pedal or a knee pedal. I think your switch is defective or just not connected properly. Good Luck Friend.

No, the Singer 4562 doesn't have a drop-down feed dog mechanism. Instead, you need to cover the feed dog for darning or other free-motion sewing. The feed cover is part of the original accessories that came with the 4562. If you need to replace it, the feed cover plate is available from several sources. One source is https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/cover-plate-singer-313117.aspx .

I hope this helps.

The curved metal piece is a knee switch, a predecessor of the foot switch. At one time I had one of that type but have no idea regarding probable age.

needle the correct length and in correctly
needle and hook timing out
check by removing the plate and slowly turning the machine by hand watch the needle go all the way down and just as it starts back up, the bobbin case hook should be just at the eye of the needle
Singer web site has good pdf downloads that explain how to check and adjust
regardless of the make , the timing is the same for all

Hi Karen,

Looks like your machine is stuck in needle bar lock out (or basting stitch) mode. There is a small rubber pad that the top of the needle bar hits when the needle bar is locked out. If the pad is missing the bar will stay locked out.
You can manually pull down on the needle bar in regular sewing to get it going again. But it won't do the Maxi, or basting stitches until it is fixed.

good luck!
