Question about Singer 7422
I just picked up an older montgomery ward sewing machine, it seems to work ok i just don't know how to work it, ha ha i'm a guy who never touched a sewing machine before. i'm looking for an operating manual or information on how to thread the machine including the bobbin and how to figure out the many different stitch options. model#UHT J1984 Serial# 488 12090. your page will not let me submit this question it tells me to submit a valid product #, so I entered the wrong product # to see if it would go through.
There are lots of men who sew...it is not gender specific.
Perhaps this will help--unfortunately not free:

Montgomery Wards Sewing Machine Instruction and Service Manuals
Montgomery Ward did not make their own machines, so it was most likely manufactured by a sewing machine company with Montgomery Ward's name on it.
However, most machines thread similarly. Just be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread--this allows the thread to seat in the tension disk. Set the top tension to about the midway point to start and then tweak from there.

Understanding Thread Tension Threads
Bobbin tension is usually the last thing to try to adjust...be sure to mark the screw setting BEFORE making any adjustment...
Bobbin Tension How and Why Tension is Adjusted
Needles are probably the least expensive resolution to a lot of sewing machine problems--change them often!!! About every 8 hours of sewing, and be sure to use a needle that is compatible with the thread and fabric. Be sure to install the needle with the flat part facing the correct direction. Most machines have the flat part facing the back of the machine, however, some machines with the bobbin loading from the side will have the flat part of the needle facing the harp (throat) of the machine. AVOID old or bargain bin threads! Use fresh, good quality sewing machine thread (generally, Coats & Clark is not one of them...)

SOURCE: bunching thread underneath
When your thread is bunching at the bottom, your top tension is not tight enough, or you did not thread the machine correctly. Make sure the thread goes through the tension blades. Check your manual how to do it properly. you can check if there is any tension by pulling on the thread before threading through the eye of the the needle, and with the presser foot down. By pulling with the left hand and adjusting the tension with the right hand you should be able to feel a difference. Normal setting is between 3 and 5

This site is the only place I could locate a manual, but it is not the exact model number. Some manuals will serve more than one model - ask before you buy.
