Question about Singer 7442 Mechanical Sewing Machine
My sewing machine is a singer model #5102. when sewing it sounds like my needle is hitting something and it sews with an inconsistant stitch and it ( the thread AND the machine) binds up and wont move when i attempt to sew....
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.

The three most obvious causes (other than that of the machine possibly being slightly out of time) are:
1) Too small of a needle size - increase the size.
2) A needle that has a flaw / defect - change the needle.
3) Needle not inserted correctly, either not pushed all the way up into the needle bar, or not installed facing the correct place. On this machine, the small "scarf" in the needle (an indent just above the eye) shouldface the right side of the machine.
