Singer 7442 How to get inside ?

Does anyone know how to open the case of a Singer 7442 sewing machine? I removed all the visible screws, yet there are probably still some hidden catches that need to be pressed down in order to open. Thanks for your help.

How to separate cover on singer 7442


It's likely that you can get the cover above the needle shaft off -- they're often separate. If so, there will be a white disk in the side and one in the back that can be popped of using a screwdriver blade on one side. They each cover a screw that you then remove, and you can see the tension assembly and thread path. Often, there are threads wrapped around one of those things inside. If not, you can remove the hand wheel. If it has a similar white disk in the center, you can pop that off and remove the screw underneath. If there is no screw, then it's a force fit. Squeeze the wheel with your hand while rocking it until it comes off.

If you need to remove the covers, remove the back one first.

How do I replace the bobbin case in singer machine 7442. The manual diagram is minimal and I replace it incorrectly and just got it out after several attempts. Can't seem to get it aligned proper;u


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 Samba 6 sewing machine


It would be wise to have the machine cleaned & serviced. Do you have a manual for it? Did it come with oil at one time? I found a free manual at
http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/singer/7442.html

You have to register (free)...choose to skip the popups (2)...and you can save the manual to your hard drive.

I checked the manual...you don't need to oil the machine...but page 61-63 shows cleaning...and it's basic. You take the two screws from the throat plate, remove the bobbin case & brush the inside of the machine bed out...I use a small artists plastic bristle brush, or a small childs tooth brush.

Hope this helps.

Oil a 7442 sewing machine


Hi. Your manual will tell you where to oil your machine, or if it's self-oiling (in which case you don't oil it). If you've lost your manual, check with http://www.mastersewusa.com/menu-singer_iinstructional.htm; they have your manual. I wrote a small tip on oiling your machine, too.

Be sure to use good sewing machine oil in your machine. You can get it at any fabric store or order it online. One of my favorite online stores for sewing supplies is Nancy's Notions (http://www.nancysnotions.com/).

Whether or not your machine is self-oiling, be sure to keep the lint cleaned out of the bobbin area. You can use a small brush (even a little paint brush works nicely) and just brush all the bits of lint out. A good habit to get into is to brush all the lint out when you go to put your machine away after each use.

Since you're new to sewing, here's a couple more things that are good to know:

Use good quality thread. Protect your thread supplies from dust and sunlight. Old or cheap thread breaks easily and gives off more lint.

Use a new needle with each project you sew and make sure you use the right size needle and thread for what you're sewing. I wrote a quick guide about which needle to use with what fabric.

Most problems you experience with your machine can be solved by rethreading your machine or changing the needle.

Happy Sewing!

Can't put back the bobbin case in a singer 7442, it get sotck


Put the bobbin into the case so the thread is feeding clock wise and through the guide on the case.

Lift the lever to hold the bobbin in place.

Insert the bobbin case into the race/shuttle, still holding the lever out.

Align the finger on the bobbin case with the opening in the race/shuttle.

You may have to turn the bobbin case a bit to the left or right for it to line up.

Once it clicks into place it should work without any further problems.

It might be the way you're asking that's confusing the problem. It's simple to remove the hand wheel, slip the belt over the track, and then replace the hand wheel. It really depends on the model of your machine - is it by chance a 328K?
