Question about Singer 7422
I have not made a button hole on this machine yet. I tried tonight so I got the book out and followed the instructions step by step. It is supposed to make the button hole automatically when you have the lever down, the button in the foot, etc. I did all that and started the machine and the material does not move. Furthermore, the top thread and bobbin thread just make knots. The directions don't specify if I use the regular plate (which I am) and the needle position and the stitch width do not illuminate at all (which I presume is because it is automatic). Please help..I still have 10 articles to finish before Christmas.
You can use the regular plate and you are correct in that it should make the button hole automatically. If the material does not move, the pessure on the pressure foot is not enough.
You can try the following:
First make sure you select a button hole patern.
You can also place a piece of stitch and tear paper underneath the material to help with the movement. If you dont have any, try normal tissue paper.
Hope this help you
