Question about Singer 7442 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Whenever I engage the bobbin to wind, and press the foot switch, it immediately locks up and all lights light up. To get it to do anything but blink, I have to flip the on/off switch. Then it starts for just a second, winds two or three rounds and locked up again, with a high pitched electronic squeal, all lights blinking again.
My wife had the same problem with a high pitched electronic squeal, all lights blinking. A quick cleaning of the machine cured the problem. Raise the needle to the highest point and remove the needle plate by removing the 2 screws. Remove the bobbin case and clean all the fibers out and your machine will run like new.

SOURCE: Singer 7442 Bobbin Will not wind
to wind a bobbin you get thread and put it where it usually would be put it behind those 2 metal piece (see pic in manual) and there put it around the thread guide and then u put the tip of the thread through the hole of the top of the bobbin from the inside to the outside and u are really to start, u should already have the bobbin and the spinning metal piece, then u move the metal piece to the right into the notch and press the presser foot and hold it until it stops you and you're done :-)
