Question about Singer 7422
When my needle is all the way down in the stitch it is hitting the plate that rotates under the bobbin holder. It is almost like the plate is off timing or something. The needle does not fit into the ridge anymore. Any suggestions?
How do you adjust the timer on a 7422

Is the needle inserted correctly with the flat side at the rear and fully up into the holder ?
If yes, take off the needleplate, remove bobbin case and slowly rotate the handwheel towards you watching the relationship between needle, and the "hook" of the moving "race".
Set on wide zig zag........when the needle is fractionally past it's lowest point, and starting to rise, the hook should be level with the left side of the needle when on the right hand stitch of the zig...the eye of the needle will be below the hook, and ready for thread to be picked up for the stitch to form.
Any other result will mean your timing needs adjusting.
