Question about Singer 7442 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Needle position jammed?

When turning on singer model 7442 there is a buzzing sound and all lights are flashing. With the side plate off you can see the needle position flicker but nothing happens. I can't get the lights to stop flashing and the machine to work. What do I do?

First make sure you are using a needle that is recommended by your model. Secondly make sure the needle is inserted correctly. The flat side of the needle needs to be against the flat bar that makes the needle go up and down. After this, unplug the power supply and let it set for a couple of minutes. This gives the computer time to re-set itself.
Hope these suggestions work!

Almost jammed


This sounds like a bearing failure, I would take it in to a service center and ask for a free estimate.

Take the needle plate off and turn the needle up and down by hand while watching to see if it is hitting anything. The hook timing could be off.

Singer 7442 is Loud!


Check to see that lint or oil has not collected on the hook or needle bar. Always use a good quality sewing machine oil. A damaged needle can also be the cause of a noisy machine - insert a new needle.
