Question about Singer 7442 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Consew Model 230RH, I cannot get this machine to pick up the bobbin thread, I just purchased a new bobbin case and neadles. I purchased this machine on Ft. Bragg from the sport parachute team and I know it worked, I have watched the lady use it for years, that' s why I bought it. When I went to pick it up the bobbin case and needles were missing. So I ordered them locally. It doesn't make the loop it's like there is nothing for it to grab hold of. Which way is the needle suppose to point (thread hole)? And how far in should the needle be I've tried to move it up and down, certain spots seem like it tries to loop. I hope you can help. thanks
The needle goes with the flat side to the back. Also make sure that you have the bobbin placed in the casing properly. If it is backwards this will cause problems. If you go to this site http://www.sewshop.com/Lead_%20Sewing_Machines_%20singer_simpicity_brother_janome-2-.htm you may be able to order a manual for your machine. Hope this has helped. Best of luck.
