Question about Singer 7442 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Put in a new needle and make sure it is inserted all the way up in it's holder. Then look at the machine sideways and check the needle clearance to the plate. When the needle is decending it should either be dead center or just behind center. Never forward of center. If it is, the thread will rub against the front of the needle plate hole and shred the thread. If the bobbin area is properly assembled and the needle is centered properly, you need a service tech. The clearances in a sewing machine have to be set in a proper order. By the way, make sure the flat part of the needle faces the rear of the machine. Hope this helps!
