Incorrectly positioned looper in Singer 7462 machine
The machine came to me only for inspection and apparently sewn normally. As it turned out, it was completely wrongly set up and someone was already trying to fix it.
We start by unscrewing the needle and removing the drawer in the machine
Now you need to unscrew the needle plate and remove it
Take out the bobbin and bobbin case
Unscrew the screw holding the plastic washer (attention likes to run away and is tiny) and remove it with the washer.
This will help better visibility of the screws holding the rack
For better freedom of movement, unscrew the foot
We unscrew the transport teeth
Now there is room for two screws responsible for adjustment
These are the same screws that hold the transport teeth.
We loosen them lightly enough so that the hook can be twisted with considerable resistance.
If it is unscrewed too much, it will be difficult to set the hook
Set the hook in the left position of the needle and turn the wheel of the machine towards you (in the opposite direction to the movement of the clock hands).
With the machine off, you can easily move the needle bars left and right.
Set the hook and tighten the screws
All this can be folded in the reverse order, but when placing the transport teeth, they must be set (they are quite adjustable)
Gently catch them and add the needle plate to set them correctly
Everything twisted and the end result as seen 🙂
