Question about Singer 7430 Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Singer 7430, Needle hits the bottom of the bobbin case.

All steps for cleaning have been taken, it still catches and as a result the bobbin thread does not get picked up by the needle. Moments before it was working fine. The needle broke on a pin and the thread got tangled up. I removed all the stray thread and replaced the needle with the exact same kind of needle I had been using. Any thoughts?

SOURCE: On my Singer Scholastic, the thread jams in the bobbin area

It sounds like it is not threaded properly through the tension disc. Try rethreading and make sure the presser foot lever is in the up position. If it continues, once threaded and with the presser foot down, pull on the thread through the needle. If it has resistance, it is threaded properly. If it pulls easily then there is a problem in the tension area. Check to see if there are peices of thread broke off in between the tension disc.

Review your user's manual--if you don't have it, you can download it free at the Singer website.

Make sure that you are inserting the bobbin and bobbin case (if you had taken it out) correctly. Also make sure your needle was inserted correctly, with the flat part away from you, and it is ALL the way up and being firmly held by the needle clamp screw.

If you have done those steps and you still cannot catch the thread, it means that your timing is off and will need to be adjusted by a technician.

check to see if you have your needle in backwards
have you checked your needle to see if it's bent-roll it on a flat surface & see if it rolls good
check to see if the needle is blunt-makes a popping sound when going thru fabric
check to see if the thread is getting caught on the notch of the spool of thread
check to make sure the bobbin is not warped
check to make sure there are no burrs on the bobbin case
check your upper thread tension

I think the timing is off on my singer 7430 -- it keeps breaking needles and I can see where the needle hits the bottom of the bobbin casing when it is in the fully down position -- any quick fix?


Drop-in bobbin?

Refer to the maintenance section of the manual for cleaning.

Raise the needle to it's highest position and remove the bobbin and bobbin case.

Clean the shuttle and replace the bobbin case, noting the graphic in the instruction manual for aligning the case into the shuttle.

Turn the handwheel to see if the needle now clears the outer edge of the bobbin case.

Needle hits the bobbin holder and doesn't grab the bobbin thread


Check you have the right size bobbin case the gap where the needle enters should be 13mm approx at the widest point. A lot of other pfaff bobbin cases seem to fit and can be easily be mistaken. I have two pfaffs and have accidentally mixed the cases and had a similar problem.
