Question about Singer 7422
When looking at the feed dogs on my machine, you can see that one is higher than the other, causing my fabric to be pulled more on one side than the other. Replace or try and persuade them back to level? How quick will they crack?

SOURCE: feed dog is stuck
I have the same problem...this is a work around, not a fix. You need a small flat-head screwdriver. 1. Remove the clear bobbin cover. 2. Make sure the feed dog switch is in the DOWN position. 3. Slide the screwdriver under the feeddogs from inside the bobbin area & lift the feed dogs. 4. While holding the feed dogs in the up position, return the feed dog knob to the up position. You have to do this every time you put the feed dogs down...bummer, but I can find no broken part or adjustment that corrects this. If it's inside the machine body, I don't mess with it... I did take off the bottom plate in the feed dog area..one screw holds it.... there is nothing there to indicate a problem.

It probably needs gears replaced or has a loose gear. Unfortunately you need to take it in to a repair shop. (I am assuming that you are not in button hole or have the stitch length set to zero).

SOURCE: feed dog problem.
Open the bobbin case door and there should be a lever sitting off to the right. It moves from left to right. For the feed dogs to be in the up position the lever should be to the left.

Remove the throat plate and clean out the lint in between the feed dogs (teeth). Make sure the throat plate is not bent downwards where the needle goes through. Also, after removing the lint turn the machine over by hand, the feed dogs at their highest point should be about 2mm above the throat plate.
Also, try this link, there are many free books.
