Question about Singer 7442 Mechanical Sewing Machine
My Singer 7442 will not sew. It beeps 4 times when I use the foot pedal and does nothing. I've checked the button-hole lever, and that's not the problem, it won't sew a button-hole either and I've re-threaded the machine about 6 times. Any suggestions?
Hi this is not a solution but read this and see if it equates to the 4 beeps:
Stitch length and width/needle position controls
Your sewing machine will produce most of your stitching
requirements at an Auto/Default Stitch Length and Width. When
a pattern is selected, it will automatically sew at default settings
of stitch length, width and needle position for straight stitch.
Auto (preprogrammed) default settings are easily determined
by moving the Stitch Length and Width / Needle Position Control
Knob. The LED Indicator next to the Control will light without
blinking and a beep will sound indicating you are at the Auto /
Once you have determined the Auto / Default position you can
manually change the length, width or straight stitch needle
postition according to your preference. Starting at the Auto
position, slide the control knob left or right to locate each of the
potential adjustments. At each manual adjustment point, the
LED will blink 3 times and a beep will sound

Just trying to help.. I do not think this is your solution so please do not rate it unless the info above helps you stop your beeping problem. Just reject the solution so it will go back to the live / pending posts. Thanks Kelly

Thanks for using FixYa. First of all when you thread the machine do make sure you have the presser foot up so the thread goes between the tension discs, top tension between 4 and 6 normally, make sure the bobbin in the correct way round, you should be able to pull the thread through the bobbin case with some resistance, if it is too loose you will need to tighten the screw clockwise on the bobbin case, if it is too tight you will need to slacken it off a bit, remember the thicker the thread the tighter the tension becomes and even worse if you do not use a mercerized thread, if you need to check the top tension, with the presser foot down put your left thumb just above the eye of the needle and you should only just be able to pull the thread. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
