Question about Singer 7422
I have a brand new Singer 7422 that has never worked. Unfortunately the warranty expired before I ever tried to use it, so I'm stuck fixing it myself. First the needle was ripping the fabric. I jammed it up as far into the holder as I could, and now it seems to be doing better. However, now the bobbin won't catch. I'm thinking that maybe the problems are related, but I can't find anything in the manual or online that offers a solution. Any help would be appreciated!
I assume you checked to see there are no needle bits in the bobbin case holder.
Without looking at the machine it is difficult to diagnose the problem. It could be any one or a combination of problems, timing, needle bar height, damage to the hook and base etc.
I strongly suggest you have it looked at by a sewing machine tech.

Make sure you have the machine threaded for the bobbin and not threaded through the sewing path. Also, check to make sure that the bobbin is pushed directly against the post as far as possible.

SOURCE: Bobbin won't wind Singer 7422
Your problem lies with the main shaft that is to tight to release the bobbin winder mechanism, because of old grease and oil becoming sticky. A short term solution will be to remove the needle, in order not to hurt you, and then hold on to the needle bar with your left hand, while engaging the bobbin lever with your left hand. This will prevent the main shaft to rotate and your winder should work. In the long term, take it to your dealer to clean the oil and grease. You will not be able to open the machine casing yourselve, as you might damage the casing and or electronics.

I just figured out why my bobbine was winding on shaft instead of on the bobbin. first of all make sure the bobbin is setting up high enough, top of bobbin needs to be a fraction higher then the bobbin shuttle, next check to make sure there are no burrs on the bobbin, then make sure that the thear is catching in the groove (**** in top) of the bobbin. In order to get mine to wind i had to lett the tread go down and then slip the thread in the groove. also remember to leave the pressure foot up do not put it down. let me know if this helps.

Here's one, have my 3rd singer (the only thing Simple was me for buying it)
The upper thread just goes around the pin that the bobbin sits around.
The vendor was gracious in exchanigng twice, by the way,
machine #1 sewed for 92 days, singer's warranty is 90 days, & only for parts,
they generally say it's a timimg issue, (all labor, no parts, )
there's a deductible
I guess the solution is don't buy a singer
they used to be very reputable
but, chose mass production
