Singer is the Best

This is a great all purpose sewing machine. It is fast, efficient, and easy to use. It has all the basic features that you need for sewing for a family. I have used it every day since I bought it and couldn't be more pleased with it.

Biggest Bang for the Buck

Overall Rating:

Pros: Good Value, High Quality, Good Speed

Cons: I Haven't Found Anything Wrong With It Yet.

10 out of 11 people found this helpful.

I have a small strap and harness business. I sew 6 days a week and sometimes 7 depending on orders. I sell around the world. I run 3 machines. They were all Brothers. I bought a new one Dec. 2014. It just started having problems so with the quality of Brother machines going in the toilet, I decided to give Singer a shot. Let me tell you, this 4432 is a great machine. Had some small issues out of the box. I think it got shook up in transit but I worked them all out within the hour. As some other folks, The auto needle thread device doesn't work well for me. Two reasons - I'm left handed and this and all others are built for righties. The second is the braided and bonded nylon thread I use is too thick for that little hook to grab easily. Absolutely no problem for me. This unit really streaks along. I tried sewing double thickness nylon webbing. I had to make one adjustment on the upper tension and that was it. This thing flies and sews great. I really recommend this.

Broke after 3 uses

I bought this machine to replace my old Singer machine about 6 months ago. I don't sew very often anymore, but I definitely know my way around a sewing machine. I have only used this machine about three times since I bought it last September, it has had less than half an hour of use total, and today I was going to hem some curtains, but the machine stopped working. The motor still sounds like it is functioning, but there is no action from the machine. It is too late to return it, so now I need to go find a warranty center to take it to, and hope that the warranty will cover whatever is wrong, What a disappointment.

I haven't sewed in years. I was looking at used machines when my husband found this one online. I got a fantastic deal too thru Amazon. Final cost was $80.00! I sew denim and upholstery fabrics and its a great machine, easy to use. I wouldnt own any other machine brand!

I am still just learning to sew but this machine makes it so easy. I love the dial for the different patterns. Heavy duty. If I have any questions, I just go to youtube and watch the videos.

Overall Rating:

Pros: Good Value, Easy To Use

Cons: Led Light Does Not Give Enough Light So I Have To Use Stanidn Lamp Just To Get See What I'm Sewing. The Lamp Gets In My Way., As I'm Sewing The Machine Makes A Clunking Sound.g, I Sew Two Stiches And It Jams. The Thread Wraps Around The Bobbin Case And Area., Takes More Time Using The Auto Threader Than By Hand.

16 out of 22 people found this helpful.

I had such high hope for this machine. I've had it less than a month. I have tried everything suggested in the instruction manual for jamming thread, but nothing corrects it. I have no idea where the clunking sound is coming from.

There is no authorized Singer repair in Oklahoma, and I have a deadline to make.

It is "mechanical" but there are no places to add oil for this "mechanical" sewing machine.

The machine is fairly easy to use.

It would be a good value if it worked properly.

I bought a 4432 and never did get the tension mechanism to work right. I kept it for almost 2 months, kept trying to get things to work. I think I gave it a fair shot.

I've only used this machine for a month or so, but it's working very well. The only minor complaint is the threader, which worked beautifully at first but now is more problems than it's worth. I use a small purchased one instead.

I mistreated my last sewing machine because I sew through thick pack material and sometimes thin wood to make packs for bike touring... This heavy duty model is very impressive. It has enough features for me

I just got this sewing machine and have used it to repair a few items. I love it!! This machine runs smoothly and fairly quiet compared to my other one. I'm very happy that Singer has a good warranty and it was a helpful selling point.

Singer Heavy Duty 4432

Overall Rating:

Love the machine. It lacks a bobbin rethread while the bobbin in in the casing. Bad. It lacks the tool that attaches to the bed of the machine that guides the fabric with a chosen seam width. Really bad drawback.

Very impressed by the speed and power of this machine. Able to sew through several layers of material with no problem. Especially like the needle threader. So easy to select the various stitches. This machine is easy enough, that my 8 year old grandson has been able to make some cloth book marks. He also made some mug (coffee cups) rugs. This is a good starter machine to learn sewing.

Not Heavy Duty

Overall Rating:

Pros: Easy To Use

Cons: Poor Quality

49 out of 52 people found this helpful.

I purchased this machine because it is called heavy duty and I sew things like piano covers and seat cushions with upholstery thread. I do this for personal use only. I do not have a business. At first it sewed like a dream. Within 2 weeks it was looping. After being on hold over an our to speak to a rep I was told it needed a repair. I had to drive an hour to the only repair center in my state. The repair was covered by the warranty. I was told by singer that heavy duty means "high speed" and it is not a commercial machine, and could not use upholstery thread. They admitted that the paperwork does not say anything about what thread to use or not use, and recommended all purpose or dual use thread. The repair guy also told me it is not really heavy duty. I am sad. However the repair was covered by the warranty and the price was really good on Amazon. I now have 2 singer "non-heavy duty" machines. I would have returned this one because I don't need 2 of the same, but buy the time I got it back from repair it was too late. Sorry Singer but you need to change the name if this is not really a Heavy Duty machine.

I loved it from the first time I used it. Since I don't see well I love the feature that threads itself. I haven't tried everything about it but I will.

I am not very satisfied with this machine. The auto threader does not work. I break needles like never before. I watched a preview on QVC about this machine sewing over 12 layers of denim. That was FALSE. It doesn't even want to hem a pair of jeans properly.

I like the singer 4432. I sew at least twice a week and design and make quilts. This machine does the job quilting and sewing jeans, remember to insert a needle for these functions. To improve the ease of sewing I use additional lighting. When I feed quilt fabric pieces into the machine sometimes the thread jams after the first couple of stitches. This is the only problem I have with the machine...................Ju ju Le Blanc..designer

I bought this as second machine as needed something that can sew a little more heavy duty. I got that. I am having difficulty with the buttonhole maker but hope to figure it out real soon. For the price a great buy.

Great heavy duty machine

Overall Rating:

Pros: Good Value, Easy To Use, High Quality, Sturdy Construction

I bought this machine as a second machine. I wanted a basic machine that was heavy enough to tackle most any job. I have recently been making rope bowls with it and have found it to be excellent. My one complaint is that the needle threader doesn't seem to work. It pushes the needle forward instead of threading it . I will likely ask about this next time I am down at the dealers.

Works excellent for sewing heavy material. Make sure you change the needle after sewing heavy weight materials. Follow the threading instructions. I had to sew a life size doll in burlap. The machine held well. Only needed pressured air cleaning. Is a little loud as expected due to its motor. Very fast. I recommended it. My needle threader broke but that was my fault.

I love the way this machine sews. My favorite thing is the button hole maker. I have never used a machine that make a button hole as easy as this one. I wish I had bought this machine ages ago. Saves lots of time and frustration when making button holes.

I like my machine -- heavy duty, simple to use -- however, it tends to catch thread under the material, and I cannot figure out why.

I create period costumes for friends, family and for online sales. I use everything from plain cotton muslin to upholstery fabric and everything in between. This machine has an all metal interior and is made to go go go. It is simple but a hard worker! I highly recommend if you do not ned all that fancy stuff and just want a solid machine.
