I think it is best if you download the service manual for your machine. Here is a PDF manual you can download. In the manual it shows you about this and how to adjust it. Here is your link.

There is also a video on YouTube that might help you with this problem.

Some repairs appear easy but doing them from a manual or even a video is not always so easy.

  • Perhaps you could pay a visit to your local Singer stores (department stores sell machines also) or just Google Singer with your zip code and find all local sellers. Many times there is a "machine" person working there that can give you some free instructions.

  • Also, try to locate a local sewing/quilting shop as they also have very good machine people and usually will help with something like this. Google sewing/quilting with your zip and see what is in your area.
  • Your local Sears repair shops will many times answer a question or even look at a machine for a small problem and not make it a charge item.
  • Usually the first step in fixing any sewing machine problem is to do a good cleaning. Follow the instructions in your manual.

If you feel you still need help you can always ask your question (free) at this link and perhaps they will have further instructions.
