Question about Singer 7442 Mechanical Sewing Machine

My Singer 7442 will not sew. It beeps 4 times

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?

    My machine doesn't have a removeable bobbin case- it is a drop in and everything is threaded correctly, the thread does pass through the tension discs

  • macyaugustus Feb 08, 2010

    my machine is brand new, do you really think that would be the problem?

  • macyaugustus Feb 10, 2010

    The pedal works fine with another machine, any other ideas?

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 /
Default Position.
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

The manual can be downloaded here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html

Hi


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.


Thanks

    If the machine is brand new its always better to use the warranty and get it repaired/replaced just to avoid any future issues. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


    Thanks

Electronic sewing machine (singer 7442) will not sew buttonhole


Ensure that you have the buttonhole lever all the way down until it doesn't go down anymore. This might sound like a silly fix, but it's actually one of the most common mistakes made by people using this(and other automatic buttonholing) machine.

When i try to do buttonhole stitch the machine beeps and won't sew


I've answered this question for this model a couple times. Ensure that the buttonhole lever is all the way down. Also, ensure that it is point STRAIGHT down, and is not pushed by the buttonhole foot in any way.
