Singer 4423 Review

Singer 4423 Review In Detail

Singer 4423 has all it takes to be an excellent beginner sewing machine. However, we found some areas of improvement in our review.

Editor rating


Singer 4423 comes with 23 built-in decorative stitches. You can easily select the decorative stitches using the stitch dial on the machine.  There is another dial for adjusting the stitch length of Singer 4423 heavy duty sewing machine.  When you hear the word heavy duty, you would expect the sewing machine to be really heavy. But  Singer 4423 Heavy Duty Sewing Machine is not really that heavy. It just weighs 14.5 pounds. So it is easy to carry around. There is no included carrying case, you will have to buy it separately.

Ease of Use

Singer 4423 can easily thick fabrics with ease. While sewing denim, you must make sure that you use denim needle. Sew slowly while you are working with thick fabrics. Changing the presser foot is very easy, just press the presser foot release bar and the foot pops out and put the other feet in. You can adjust the presser foot height which lets you sew through thick layers of denim or other stuff. You can use any kind of thread you like. Singer 4423 is capable of sewing 1100 stitches per minute, that's pretty fast. Its operation is pretty quiet as well (even at that speed).

All accessories are stored in the accessory tray, similar to all top sewing machine brands in U.S. If you remove the accessory tray from the machine, you can do free-arm stitching as well. You can drop the feed dog using the lever at the back. Another thing we really like is the automatic one-step buttonhole. Automatic one-step buttonhole is not something that you find in all entry level sewing machines, but Singer 4423 Heavy Duty Sewing Machine has it. The 25 year limited warranty includes 25 years on head, 2 years on motor and electronic components and 90 days on belts, bulbs and attachments.

Drawbacks

The user manual is slightly difficult to understand. Especially the threading instructions. It could have been more detailed.

The machine seems to strain slightly with 8 plus layers of denim. Going slow brings better results.

Even though the machine is heavy duty inside, external parts are mostly plastic. But it is not cheap plastic, they are of good quality.

Pros

•    Light weight
•    Sews fast
•    Automatic one-step buttonhole
•    Easy to use

Cons

•    User manual needs improvement
