How do I reset an E7 error message?
Me, too!! I just got the same code. I actually took off all the stuff
to clean it (glad I did too because after a whole week of sewing on it
straight, it was hella filthy!), I still couldn't get it to work. The
answer is in the Singer FAQ website (http://www.singerco.com/support/frequently-asked-questions).
Your button hole lever has been bumped. It is just to the left of the
the needle bar. I just pulled mine all the way down, then pushed it all
the way back up. No more E7!!!! Color me happy for sure!
How to change needle position (left, right, center)
Which stitch are you using? As far as I can tell, the Stylist 7258 only allows you to change the needle position for straight stitches. If the machine is set to Pattern 00, press the right or left buttons from the 4 arrow keys in the manual setting arrows until the needle is in the desired position.
For all other stitches, the left/right arrows adjust the stitch width. This is described on page 30 (in English) of the manual. You can download the manual from the product page under the support tab: http://www.singerco.com/products/2101/7258-stylist#type-support . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/4951b452e963a8fe1dd1fd83fbac68a35df8cf19.pdf .
I hope this helps.
Why does it make a knocking noise as it sews?
the needle position is up tight in the holder and no where else
the cut away bit of the needle faces the bobbin case hook and the groove in the needle faces the end of the machine and gives clearance for the thread to pass through the material
from your description and what you did, the needle /hook timing needs adjusting as it is out
turn the machine over by hand as in sewing and watch the position of the eye of the needle and the bobbin case hook
just as the needle starts to move up, the hook should be just above the eye of the needle at the edge of the needle
The adjustment is by loosing off the screw on the vertical shaft at the end of the machine that is attached to an arm that moves the needle up and down and move that bit up or down until the needle is positioned correctly to the hook
tighten up the screw
next is to check the needle tension is not too tight
workshop manuals are available on line in pdf version or take it to a sewing machine repair shop for a proper diagnosis
