Singer 7442 Bobbin Will not wind

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?

    singer 7422 has thread loaded per the instructions in the manual, but when you press the foot presser nothing happens!

    Just got off the phone with customer support and they told me it might be the alarm for the tensioner. To fix it I will have to send it to a warranty center the is 3 states away! I might keep trying it on my own.

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 :-)

Singer Touchtronic 2000 - it will not wind a bobbin, I have found a manual onlin that says you just drop it in and push the foot feed and it will wind the bobbin but it doesn't do anything.


Take your thread that is under the presser foot and wind the thread on the tension disk. It is located right above and to the left of the presser foot. Then you will drop in the bobbin and slide the thread into the **** in the top of the bobbin. Push the little white tab in the bobbin slot all the way to the right until it is in the center of the bobbin. Then press the foot feed and the bobbin should wind.

We have 2 singer 7442 machines and they will no longer wind the bobbin. Up to this point we followed the instructions the manual gave on how to thread and wind the bobbin. How do we fix?


If you have followed the instructions and the winders do not work, the machines will need to be repaired, or you could purchase a Sidewinder Bobbin Winder and forgo the expense of having the machines repaired.

Trying to wind a bobbin and within 2 seconds it stops and the red led lights flash


If you do not have a manual, you can download one here - http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/singer/7442.html

If the manual does not help and if the machine is still working, you might consider purchasing a Sidewinder Bobbin Winder (check the Internet for the best price) and forgo taking it in for a $100 + service and repair fee.

Singer touch n sew 750 winding bobbins


You can find Singer bobbin winding instructions at http://www.singerco.com/resources/bobbin_wind.html.
"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

Needle is moving when bobbin is winding & lights are flashing


Check the clutch at the knob on the right side of the machine, where you tighten it to sew & loosen it to wind a bobbin. It could be very loose and when you start to wind a bobbin, it tightens itself up.

Bobbin filling on Singer 626


The Singer 626 has a self-winding bobbin. You place the empty bobbin in the bobbin thingie (sorry for being so untechnical). On the left of the bobbin you will see a "lever" with a circular top on it (I think it is red-ish) Again, sorry for being so untechnical. Press the "lever" down. Thread your machine, thread the needle, wrap the excess thread from the needle around the knob that tightens the needle and holds it in place and press your foot down on the foot pedal. The bobbin will automatically wind as you hold the foot pedal down. Do not wind the thread onto the bobbin past the outer white line.
