How to adjust M5 Screw on Singer 7463

What makes you think your timing is off? What is it doing/not doing that makes you think it's off? Before you do anything ,make sure your needle is all the way up in the clamp. A needle inserted too low--even a little--can cause the same symptoms.

How do i drop the feed dog on singer 7463 confidence so i can free motion sew?

You cannot drop the Feed Dogs on a 7463 Singer. It should have come with a small black plastic shied that will slide over the Feed Dogs and clip into the two holes in the face plate to cover them completely. If you've lost that dark plastic plate, you can also tape an index card over them, or a piece of thin plastic (like template sheets) to get the job done.

Singer Confidence 7463 - needle is knocking - bobbin wont thread...machine doesn't stitch - not even 2 months old

Have you changed the needle since you purchased it? A needle should be replaced every 4-6 hours of stitching so for each garment sewn as a rule of thumb. So try replacing the needle, cleaning and oiling the maachine as per the manual. Check needle is in the correct way, it is easy to put in backwards if you aren't familar with them, flat shank to the back and there is usually a scarf (cut away area) at the back of the needle which is where the rotary hook under the needle plate comes around to catch the upper thread during the stitch process. So if needle is in backwards this will cause stitching to fail.

So elimate the needle firstly.

If this fails and the knocking noise continues, then it could be that the timing has been knocked out. It can happen if you sew over a pin and hit it hard (or the needle strikes the foot if stitch setup is wrong for the foot being used). In this case, you'll need to take it back to the shop for the serviceman to fix.

Just got my Singer Confdence 7463 and am in the process of threading. I can't seem to get the thread take up to stick out from the machine enough, as I move the needle up and down, to be able to put the...

try opening the light cover door, some have a hinge at the back & others have a plastic plug you can pry up carefully with a small screw driver, that way you can get access to the thread take up lever.
