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.

SOURCE: skip stitch
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.

I have the Singer Touch Tronic 2001. I bought it used for $50. It has the manual and all the parts. However, the manual refers to lifting the top console to access the stitch width selector dial and to change the pattern selector discs. I cannot seem to lift this console up even the manual says that it is hinged for easy access to these parts. Can anyone describe how to lift the console up? Or send a picture or video of this process?
