Question about Singer 7436 - INGENUITY
Whenever I engage the bobbin to wind, and press the foot switch, it immediately locks up and all lights light up. To get it to do anything but blink, I have to flip the on/off switch. Then it starts for just a second, winds two or three rounds and locked up again, with a high pitched electronic squeal, all lights blinking again.
I have a singer 7436 and the same thing is happening! How can I fix this?
This happened to me on / off before but now seems ok since I cleaned the area where i put the bobbin when sewing. There was so much lint - I guess it was playing a role.

To wind a bobbin you get thread and put it where it usually would be put it behind those 2 metal piece (see pic in manual) and there put it around the thread guide and then u put the tip of the thread through the hole of the top of the bobbin from the inside to the outside and u are really to start, u should already have the bobbin and the spinning metal piece, then u move the metal piece to the right into the notch and press the presser foot and hold it until it stops you and you're done :-)
