Question about Singer 7442 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I have a singer 7442...was working great til yesterday when all of a sudden the bobbin case started rattling and it jammed. I took it out and cleaned it and then tried to reseat it....it's still rattling and jamming and the pictures in the instruction manual are hard to read...any suggestions?
SOURCE: Bobbin case
If your machine is older than 18 months, it needs a free upgrade from your dealer. The plastic see through needle plate needs to be replaced by a newer version that will keep the bobbin down. Further more a bobbin case position finger needs to be installed.

SOURCE: bobbin case case keeps jamming
I am having somewhat the same problem with the exception that my needle did not break. I've cleaned and oil, but the bobbin case and projection positioned spring is not communicating to allow sewing to continue. The thread keeps jamming and the bobbin raises up the plate. So, what else am I to do?

either your bobbin case isnt installed right or the machine's timing is messed up try to get needle loose or completly out is preferred then try turning it and see if it comes unjammed if so take your bobbin case out and reinstall it making sure it is in the fit right if this dont solve it then you need to get timing set (not recommended to do at home get pro to do it ) hope this helps you

unscrew the black plate that holds in the bobbin case and move it over to the left just a little bit, but make sure there is still clearance between the lower right corner of the case and the plate. The case should be able to wiggle a little, but not so loose it can pop out..
