Question about Singer 7426 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Singer 7426 will not start when peddle pushed - only beeps

We have checked and rechecked the setup and all threading, etc. yet the machine will not run. Something must be telling it not to start. When the peddle is pushed, we get a series of beeps. Nothing in the manual. We may have to just go buy another machine.

    my singer 7426 just stopped working and beeps one long beep when I step on the pedal. I have re-threaded, un plugged and re-plugged and it still beeps when pedal is depressed. Help!! I am mid project. I was using a free motion presser foot to stipple stitch on a quilt.

No, dont go and buy another machine. This is a great value for money machine.

Your problem is most certainly with the buttonhole switch. Firstly: Look if the buttonhole lever, left back of machine, is push up in position. Pull it down and push it up to the top again. This should sove your problem right away.The beeping sound is a warning message. If the problem persist, do the following procedure:

Remove the light cover, left of the machine, loosen back screw and remove left hand screw completely. Check for a small black electric switch, follow the brown and green elecrtic wire, just back of the light. If you push the BH lever up and down the switch finger should also move up and down. If it stays down, the machine will not work and give a beeping sound. If the switch finger is stuck, push it up with the BH in top position. Hope this will help you

How do I get my machine to start sewing and stop beeping?


try rethreading the machine--use EVERY thread guide
make sure the needle is inserted up into the needle holder and turned the right direction
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case and turned the right direction
clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for loose thread or lint
make sure thread has not come off the thread take up lever
also the jam could have caused the machine to jump time and needs a timing or a adjustment

As I am sewing, it suddenl stalls, starts beeping and the number 88 appears on the display and it doesnt move.


I have looked through your manual online and I cannot see anywhere an error code list. I would call Singer at 1-800-4singer for an answer. That is crazy, you can't fix a problem if you do not know what is wrong.

I push the peddle down and all I get is beeping what is wrong with my 7442 singer


I would call Singer at 1-800-4singer and find out. I looked up your manual at www.singerco.com for free and don't see any mention of a beeping sound except on page 28. Your machine is a computerized one, not mechanical.
