FIRST DETERMIN NEEDLE BAR POSITION TURN STITCH REGULATOR TO LARGEST STITCH, THEN TURN HAND WHEEL TIL' NEEDLE IS ABOUT TO ENTER NEEDLE PLATE.
AT THIS POINT THE FEED DOGS SHOULD BE JUST AT OR JUST UNDER PLATE. IF SO NEEDLE BAR IS, IN CORRECT POSITION,AND TIMING WILL BE SET AT THE HOOK.

SOURCE: Bobbin won't wind Singer 7422

Your problem lies with the main shaft that is to tight to release the bobbin winder mechanism, because of old grease and oil becoming sticky. A short term solution will be to remove the needle, in order not to hurt you, and then hold on to the needle bar with your left hand, while engaging the bobbin lever with your left hand. This will prevent the main shaft to rotate and your winder should work. In the long term, take it to your dealer to clean the oil and grease. You will not be able to open the machine casing yourselve, as you might damage the casing and or electronics.

Good luck!

Make sure your thread goes under the plate of the carrusel. If not the machine think is not threaded and it beeps. Thread the machine with your left hand and Pull the thread with your other hand to make sure it "clicks" to every part of the machine.

SOURCE: how do i replace the bobbin case in singer machine

When you insert the bobbin case, make sure the "knub" on the bobbin case (#1) is just to the left of the position finger bracket (#2). It should sit in there nicely and you should be able to spin the hand wheel freely.

Singer 7442 won't stitch at all. It picks up the bobbin thread nicely, but after that won't stitch at all. Any suggestions?


Sound like one or the other of the threads is stuck. Completely un- thread your machine and remove the bobbin. See if the needle moves freely with the machine unthreaded. If it does, carefully rethread the machine and reinsert the bobbin, making sure the bobbin thread is feeding the correct direction. Let us know what happens.

Simplicity sewing machine SL 9240 was giving to me and when I try to sew the needle keeping hitting the bobbin holderr.


On the right side you have two knobs to make adjustments. The lower knob will move the needle left or right so it won't hit the bobbin holder.

Bobbin Winder


I looked in the manual for this machine, and I can't find out what "E2" means to your machine. However, there IS a list of FAQ at the back of the manual that is generally helpful. The first thing I would do, though, is turn off the machine, push the bobbin winder spindle all the way to the right to engage it, then firmly push it to the left. When you engage the bobbin winder, it activates a clutch that diverts power to the winder; that clutch might not be totally disengaged. Also, make sure your buttonhole lever is all the way up, and you have not selected the twin needle function. You might want to contact Singer through their FB account and ask what E2 means.

I tried servicing the bobbin area of my Singer 7442. I followed the instructions in the manual carefully. The straight stitch is working but all other stitches are not catching in the bobbin.


Couple of things to check is the needle new? if not change it,
Pull the bobbin thread out and bobbin case, then put the machine on a zig zag stitch, turn the hand wheel slowly and see if the hook (pointy thing that catches the thread) is just above the eye on the needle (when the swing is all the way to right) if it is not then you need to take your machine in for service.

Good luck and please rate my answer.

My Singer 7422 seems to be jammed. When I start to make a stitch, the thread from the needle gets caught on something on the bottom and the thread goes over the bobbin.
