Singer 7442 Timing

Hi,
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?
Phew,
Cheers guys,
James

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....

SOURCE: Singer 7442, how do I adjust the timing?

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.

I have a singer model 7442. It won't pick up the bobbin thead


Try installing a brand new needle. If it still will not pick up the bobbin thread, most likely the machine is out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Singer 7442 won't stitch at all. It picks up the bobbin thread nicely, but after that won't stitch at all. Any suggestions?


Sound like one or the other of the threads is stuck. Completely un- thread your machine and remove the bobbin. See if the needle moves freely with the machine unthreaded. If it does, carefully rethread the machine and reinsert the bobbin, making sure the bobbin thread is feeding the correct direction. Let us know what happens.

My bobbing thread is looping on all types of stitching. Machine was working fine. Cleaned all reachable components as per manual.


Most of the time it is in your top threading or a bad needle. Try this and if it doesn't work call Singer at 1-800-4singer. I am hoping that it is not the timing. Good luck

My Singer Advance 7422 skips stitches intermittently. Looks like it does not pick up the bobbin thread sometimes. Any suggestions?


Change to a new needle appropriate for the fabric you will be sewing. Make sure the flat side of the needle shank faces to the back of the sewing machine.

Always thread the machine with the presser foot up as this will "seat" the thread into the tension control.

I can't get it to pick up the bobbin thread??


Check the needle to be sure it is installed with the flat side of the shaft toward the back of the machine.

If the needle is properly installed and not bent, then there is a possibility that that machine will have to go into the shop for a timing adjustment.

Singer 7442 will not sew


Had the same problem as mommyb2 - it was the bobbin spindel was in the wrong position. Push bobbin spindel to the left and it works for sewing.
Have the same problem winding my first bobbin - pushed spindel to the right to engage bobbin fuction and the machine locks up and wont wind the bobbin. Irig did you bring it in for repair? I'm thinking its broke - which **** as mine is a brand new machine
