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 :-)

I only want to know if the wheel must be loosened to wind the bobbin and if so with direction, to the front or backwards and press and turn or pull and turn.thanks


Which make and model sewing machine do you have?

None of my sewing machines need the wheel to be loosened for bobbin winding. The Singer Touch & Sew bobbins are filled in place. Use the handwheel to get the needle into the highest position (just turn the wheel). Wrap the top thread around the screw that holds the presser foot; open the slide plate part way and press the bobbin wind button. Hold the top thread and then begin winding by stepping on the foot pedal.. The thread should break after a few winds.

The Kenmore and the Husqvarna Vikings both get wound at the top. Place bobbin on winding pin. With the needle up and metal presser foot in place thread the top thread up to the bobbin (through the guides) and up through the hole in the bobbin. Slide the bobbin winding switch over towards the bobbin. Hold the thread tightly and begin winding (step on the foot control). After a few winds are on the bobbin, cut the thread that you were holding flush with the top of the bobbin. Continue winding the bobbin. (The newest Viking in the group has a computer screen; on that one, do not press OK until done winding the bobbin.)

However, if the handwheel is not turning and the needle is down, first find out why it isn't turning properly. This could indicate a tangle of thread somewhere in the system. (The older Husqvarna sewing machine in my home has a non-functional handwheel. The machine will still sew but you have to use the needle up/down switch that forces the needle to stop in the up position before you run out of bobbin.)

Please add a comment with the specifics of your sewing machine and I'll be glad to add additional information.

I hope this helps.

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.

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.

Winding the bobbin?


Most of the entry level machines will have either a clutch knob or an automatic release when the bobbin winder mechanizm is engaged (put a bobbin on and more the unit to you right). If it does not disengage the clutch automaticly then either loosen the clutch wheel by turing or pulling. Sometines you have to grab the whole clutch wheel to disenage the mechanism to free wheel while winding the bobbin. Now press you foot control to wind the bobbin.
