Question about Singer 7462 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

I've been told that the part that holds the bobbin in these has constant problems and that it cannot be replaced, only reworked. Is that accurate? I love the machine otherwise.

My Singer 648 is having a problem with the bobbin thread getting caught up in the bobbin case and jamming the thread inside the case breaking the thread. Is there a solution to this problem? Thanks


try changing the needle
make sure the top thread has not come off the thread take up lever
try another bobbin
make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case
try rethread the machine top and bobbin
clean under needle plate and in the bobbin area for lint or threads

Bobbin case catching thread


I believe that you are talking about the assembly that holds the bobbin case in. The bracket that holds the bobbin case in must be adjusted to allow the upper thread to slide by. Check if the thread will go by this area without "hanging up" while rotating the hand wheel. Also check your bobbin to make sure you have the right one. If it is too high or wide it will definitely be a problem.

My Pfaff Quilt Expression 4.0 was working perfectly until I cleaned the lint out of the bobbin area and changed my needle. Now I have what looks like a multi stranded crochet chain on the bottom of m


Sounds like a tension problem. Remove the top thread and re-thread it while the presser foot lever is UP. Then do a test seam.

Also make sure you've replaced the bobbin correctly most machines require that the bobbin unspool in a certain direction to form a proper loop.

Good luck.

The bobbin thread is loops on top of the fabric even when the top thread is loosened to 2


if you've taking the machine in 4 times to be fixed,,sounds like you need a different sewing machine repair shop.
have you tried changing needles?
have you tried rethread the top & bobbin thread
is it possible the bobbin thread in not correctly inserted in the bobbin case?
try a top thread tension of 5 & see what happens?

Bobbin placement we cant get in correctly and it wont pick the bobbin thread up. when trying ti sw it bunches in knots and breaks sometimes


Sounds like the bobbin may not be the right one for your machine. YOu haven't said what make and model this is but you should check your manual or online to ensure you have the correct bobbin for it. I've seen Elna's with Singer bobbins in, they'll stitch okay but then tension problems occur, you need to have the right one for your machine. (if you aren't sure, try looking at www.sewusa.com or www.sewingpartsonline.com to find the bobbin described for your machine.)

Also metal bobbins can get squished if they've been stood on, so have a good look at it and make sure the bobbin is in good shape and looks okay.

Now take the thread off it and rewind a fresh bobbin making sure you've got tension on the thread the whole time and that the thread winds onto the bobbin very smoothly and evenly. This is something that is not emphasied in sewing machine manuals but makes a HUGE difference. Think of your garden hose coiled onto the hose reel. If you wind as the hose wants to go, it goes onto the reel all over the place, then jams up and you can't get it all on there. Look at how a thread spool is wound, the factories wind the thread in a very neat sequence and you want your bobbin to look the same. So always use the tensioner on top of the machine to take the thead around when winding the bobbin. If you don't have one, then put tension onto the thread spool the thread is coming off to ensure the thread runs off at a constant tension and speed.

Carefully watch the thread as it goes onto the bobbin and nudge it with your fingertip to get it to fill evenly top, bottom and middle of the bobbin. Stop when 3/4 full.

Now put bobbin to bobbin holder ensuring that it goes in the right way, always the thread should come off the bobbin and reverse direction in a V shape. Click the thread into the tension spring. Double check it is in there and then thread up the rest of the machine and test sew.

THere is some good trouble shooting tips at www.sewusa.com so this might help you also.

Can't put a bobbin on the winder Husqvana Viking 6020


Is this a Designer 1 or a #1? There is no moving lever on the pin of a Deigner 1,they are fixed. If it's a #1, use sewing machine oil or Triflow. NEVER use 3 in 1 oil. It will gum up and cause problems later on.

I pulled out the lubricating strip under the bobbin



Bobbin Winding 1 Put spool of thread on spool pin. ] Use spool cushion when using cross wound thread. ] Use spool cap when using parallelwound thread. 2 Lift thread guide bar all the way up, and run thread through triangular thread guide as shown in drawing. 3Run thread through bobbin winding thread guide as shown in drawing. 4 Run thread through top thread notch 1, and align bottom thread notch 2 with guide pin on bobbin winder shaft. 5 Press bobbin stop up against empty bobbin. If the bobbin stop does not slide easily between the top and bottom of the bobbin, check that the bobbin is seated properly with the guide pin (4) inserted into the lower notch 6 While holding the end of the thread, step on the foot controller for a few seconds. Once enough thread has wound itself around the bobbin to hold itself in place, release the foot controller and trim the excess thread. 7 Stop winding when bobbin Begin
8 Manually move bobbin stop back to original position. 9 Cut thread and remove bobbin.

bobbin insertion 1 Lift slide plate (and open bobbin door). 2 Put bobbin into the bobbin case. ] Run thread through thread notch and under latch spring, so that a length of about 10 cm is exposed. ] Use a bobbin case with an idling prevention spring. 3 Pull the latch lever of the bobbin case out and push the bobbin case into the shuttle race and release the latch lever. ] If the latch lever is not all the way on the hook, it may fly off during sewing and cause lower thread breakage. 4 Lower slide plate and close bobbin door, following numbers 1 2 above in order. 6 While holding the end of the thread, step on the foot controller for a few seconds. Once enough thread has wound itself around the bobbin to hold itself in place, release the foot controller and trim the excess thread. 7 Stop winding when bobbin is full. Take foot off foot controller. * Place the thread end so that it does not protrude from the bobbin. Bobbin Stop
so this will be ok and no need to worry about this

Gear in bobbin has dropped and needles break constantly


This is not a complicated sewing machine. Any competent Independent dealer should be able to take care of this problem. Call around and tell whom ever you speak with that the hook drive gear is probably out of adjustment and you want to know if they can do a complete service on this machine and do they guarantee their work.
