Question about Singer 7430.CL Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Singer 7430 - My machine will back-stitch with no problems, but when I try to sew normally, the hand wheel is jammed.

I've tried everything from thread tensions to new bobbins to taking it to a specialist. The specialist told me she had no idea what was wrong with it. Please help.

Bad board would be my first guess. Is it still in warranty?

SOURCE: The bobbin thread is sewing loose stitches and

Always have the presser foot up when you thead any sewing machine.

Make sure the flat side of the needle shaft is facing to the back of the machine.

Don't do anything to the bobbin tension. Set the top thread tension to what is recommended by the mfg.

Make sure the thread from the bobbin is feeding from the bobbin in the correct direction and through the correct guides.

After inserting the bobbin and threading the machine, lower the needle (hold on to the thread tail) and then raise it by turning the hand wheel by hand to pull up the bobbin thread.

Gently pull the two threads under the presser foot and to the back of the sewing machine before you begin to sew.

SOURCE: I have a singer simple

Insert a new needle, (flat side facing rear of machine), now totally rethread. Try this, with presser foot up, pull top thread, it should pull smoothly, now lower presser foot, the thread should barely move. This should seat the thread in the tension discs. If that doesn't work, call Singer at 1-800-4singer.

It sounds like your feed dogs are up. I don't know if you have a cover for them or if you lower them but you can't freestyle with them up.

Please explain to me how to adjust the numerical, digital buttons on my 7430 Singer sewing machine?


I just took a look at your user's manual, and boy--you're right, and I've been a computer systems engineer for about 30 years!

Actually, it's easier to figure out by DOING rather than looking at the description on page 35. Basically, selection is divided into two categories--utility, that is, stitches you would use for ordinary sewing, like stretch stitches, zigzag stitches, straight stitch, buttonholes, etc. That is located on the left column, with the arrow keys used for navigation in the middle. The display only shows 5 patterns at a time, so to see all of them, you have to keep pressing the down arrow. Once you have selected the stitch itself, you can then select the stitches width and length, and if it's available for that particular stitch, you can mirror (flip) the stitch, and use a twin needle (if it's available for that design)

The decorative and letter stitches are selected on the right column, and work he same way--they are displayed 5 at a time, etc, and selecting stitch width and length, mirror, and twin needle. However, additionally, you can choose to have the pattern sewn once (the default) or continuously.

I hope that helps!

Makes one stitch then abrupt stop with threads bunching up from bottom


Have you taken the bobbin out and made sure there is nothing caught in the bobbin race area. Maybe even unscrew the plate and take the whole bobbin race assembly apart and clean well. Once that is done put back together then re thread machine. Next I would start by hand turning the machine and doing some stitches slowly with the fly wheel make sure to to forwards only never turn the fly wheel back wards. If everything seems clear give it some power slowly and see how it goes.

Thread becomes jammed in reverse


Reverse can be tricky if the machine is not timed correctly. So try this. after you've stitched forward for a while, use the hand wheel to bring the needle all the way down into the fabric and let it come part way up. Then push your back button and take your back stitches. If that works for you then you know the machine should be checked for proper timing.

I have a singer cxl electronic sewing machine and i have a problem with the needle either not moving or stopping when stitching the larger motifs or the zigzag stitch, somtimes the needle jut moves too...


The needle either not moving or stopping is a sign that the machine is jamming. Here's the answer for the question "My machine is jammed" from the FAQs on Singer's web site at http://www.singerco.com/support/faqs.html

A jammed machine is caused by thread being caught in the hook. Remove the upper thread and the bobbin case, turn the hand wheel towards you (counterclockwise) by hand and remove any thread in the bobbin case area. *Always turn the hand wheel towards you. Turning the hand wheel away from you (clockwise) can cause the machines timing to become unaligned and jam your machine. Also, always make sure the presser foot is in the down position before you start sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will jam your machine in the bobbin case.

Your description of the needle hitting the plate or foot is an indication that the machine's timing has become unaligned which can be caused as indicated above by turning the hand wheel away from you - the correct way is to *Always turn the hand wheel towards you.

Needle jams and breaks off


Needle jams....Thread is caught in the hook...solution...Remove the upper thread and bobbin case,turn the handwheel backwards and forwards by hand and remove the thread remands.

Needles breaks
1. Needles is damaged..Insert new needle
2. The needle is not correctly inserted....insert flat side towards the back
3. Wrong needle size for the fabric...Choose a needle to suit the thread and fabric.
