Question about Singer 7442 Mechanical Sewing Machine

Open Question

I just bought a singer "totally me" knitting machine for my child. We tried it and it "blocked". I thought I had it on the rectangle option but it is on the tube. I tried switching the tube to rectangle and back and forth and it will only knit for almost half the circle and then blocks. there is no yarn stuck in it either. I took all the yarn out and started it again and same thing happened. Nothing mentioned in the instruction booklet about fixing this problem either. Any ideas what is happening or do you think I should just return the machine to the store?

    The knitting machine is only making a half rotation even on the tube setting. When I tilt the machine one of the needles moves forward while all the other remain in the machine. Is there a way to fix this problem?

SOURCE: Is carriage from SK323 compatible with SK313

In short no.

the carriage is a different size and the 323 is a much more advanced carriage, which has different setup for the tuck etc.

You might have to start afresh with a new machine. The needles from the 313 will fit the more modern ribbing attachments, so that is something you can salvage.

Otherwise, some of the yahoo groups may have a spare, or if you are a ravelry member, maybe someone there would have a spare.

I have an old Singer Memo-Matic 360/260 KNITTING MACHINE. I pulled the machine apart to repair a small dent and put it back together again. The carriage works only in one direction. Can you help me?...

yes a sping must have come off tip it upside down and move the tuck slip etc lever and see that they move, you will see the course that the needles should take, take a close look and see which part of the cams move underneathe try both sides and you will find that one wont match up maybe a pring has popped off or broke good luck. oh also check the side guiders that feed the needles into the carriage, maybe one has been knocked or dented..
