Question about Singer 7442 Mechanical Sewing Machine
When I try to fill bobbin it will go around about 4 times , then all the lights behind the buttons, which I belive is the program board, come on , and it makes a funny humming sound. It will go a couple more turns and stops altogether. Needle travels up and down, when bobbin is trying to fill. should it move? When I put in a new bobbin I can sew fine, just am unable to fill bobbin. Help !!!!!!!!!!!!
Sounds like it may be a bad solenoid or clutch inside. When it tries to reverse direction to rewind is sounds like it's getting stuck. The lights comming on might be an indication that the machine detects a problem. You could try to open it and see if any of the gears are broken or out of place or if any of the teeth on the gears are missing. But I would get it serviced if you're not comfortable with opening it up.
