Getting to Know Your Singer Heavy Duty Sewing Machine 4423
Heavy Duty Sewing
Singer sewing machines are known for their heavy-duty capabilities. These machines can sew through multiple layers of denim, canvas, and leather with ease.
For sewing denim and canvas, it is recommended to use a size 16 plus denim needle, and for leather, a leather needle is recommended. Additionally, an optional Teflon foot can be used for sewing on leather.
With a sewing speed of 1,100 stitches per minute, these machines are suitable for sewing anything from clothing to home decor and extra heavyweight fabrics.
Your Singer sewing machine is equipped with stitch programs that can handle all modern fabric types. All stitch types are shown on the front and can easily be selected with fast collection dials.
Connecting Your Sewing Machine
To connect your sewing machine, plug the foot controller into the side of the machine and then into the wall socket. Turn your machine on with the power switch.
Free Arm and Flatbed Conversion
Your machine can be used as a flatbed or converted to a free arm. It converts into a slim free-arm machine in seconds by removing the accessory tray.
The free arm area makes sewing hard-to-reach places or tubular areas like cuffs or trouser legs extremely easy. The accessory tray includes a compartment for convenient storage of all machine accessories.
For ordinary sewing, keep the feed dogs up. For freehand embroidery, sewing on buttons, and darning, drop the feed dogs.
The feed dog lever is at the back of the machine. To lower the feed dogs, slide the lever to the right, and to raise the feed dogs, slide the lever to the left. The feed dogs will come up when you start to sew.
Presser Foot Lifter
The presser foot lifter lets you set the presser foot in three different positions. The lowest position is for sewing, the center position is for placing the fabric under the presser foot and removing it, and the highest position is for removing extremely thick fabric layers.
Changing Presser Feet
Changing presser feet is incredibly easy. Make sure the needle is in the up position, raise the presser foot lifter, and push the presser foot release button to remove the foot.
Place the desired foot on the needle plate, aligning the presser foot pin with the foot holder. Lower the presser foot lifter to snap on the foot.
Changing the Needle
To change the needle, raise the needle bar to its highest position, loosen the needle clamp screw with the flat screwdriver, remove the needle, and insert the new needle. Push the needle up as far as it can go and tighten the needle clamp screw with the screwdriver.
Different types of needles are available for different types of fabrics.
Bobbin Winding and Insertion
To wind the bobbin, place the thread on the spool pin and secure it with the spool pin cap. Slip the thread under the thread guide, maintaining tension on the thread with your right hand, and wind it clockwise around the tension disk.
Put the thread end through the bobbin from the center and then out through the hole on the bobbin. Place the bobbin on the bobbin winding spindle and push the bobbin to the right.
Hold the end of the thread and then step on the foot controller. The bobbin will begin to fill.
To insert the bobbin, raise the needle to a top position, raise the presser foot, and remove the bobbin cover plate by pushing the release button to the right. Insert the bobbin, making sure the bobbin rotates counterclockwise.
When pulling the thread, put your finger on the bobbin, and pull the thread to the left and through the notch, making sure the thread runs between the bobbin case and the tension disc. Then pull the thread towards the back of the machine and replace the bobbin cover.
Threading Your Singer Heavy Duty Sewing Machine 4423
Threading your machine is very easy. First, raise the needle to its highest position by turning the hand wheel towards you.
Continue turning it towards you until the needle slightly begins to go down again. This will raise the take-up lever to its highest position.
Raise the presser foot lifter. This is important because by raising the presser foot lifter, the tension disc is released so that the thread will go into the tension properly.
Place the thread on the spool pin and secure it with the spool pin cap. Bring the thread through the upper thread guides.
Thread the tension by leading the thread with your left hand down the right channel and then up the left channel. Bring the thread downward and then slip it behind the horizontal thread guide and bend the needle clamp guide located just above the needle.
