Question about Singer 7442 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Machine sews fine in a straight line but it appears to not be picking up thread to the left of the centre.
It has recently jammed a couple of time as my partner didn't properly read the instruction manual before use... even though i told her to, as she had another machine befreo she was fairly confident... anyhow, either thread quality, tension or something made it Jam and when i called singer he said I may have to bring it in.
Under 5 years Warrantee so it is for free.
But to save hassle I am wondering if there is a way I am able to correct the timing myself?

Here's how you set the timing od the Machine alright:
1. Take the side plate off, take the needle plate off.
2. Take the presser foot off, and put a new needle in the machine. 3. Make sure that the needle is in the lowest position and look at the needle bar for the two timing lines. Locate the top line.
4. Then, turn the handwheel toward you until the top line is where the bottom line was.
At this point, the tip of the hook should be directly in the scarf of the needle.
This should set the timing of the machine perfect....

Have you changed your needle? What needles are you
using?Other than that it may be that your needle may be
too high and not in the right position. So I would
play with maybe bringing it down a little bit at a time -
and hand turn your wheel.
