Replace your needle with a new one and insert with the flat side facing away from you. Then turn the handwheel towards you, never away from you or else you can mess up the timing

It sounds like the wrong size bobbin, try calling Singer is your bobbin is right because they should be able to answer why it is acting so strange. Good luck

I press the foot pedal the needle does not go up or down.


The bobbin winder on the top of the machine might need to be pushed the other way . It could be in the winding position. hope this helps

Singer 7444 trouble winding bobbin


It sounds like you don't have any tension on the thread when winding the bobbin. Make sure that you are running the thread through the tension disc on the top of the machine before going to the bobbin winder.

Your machine could be defective. Take it back where it was purchased.

Bobbin won't wind


I also have the 15358. You probably forgot to "lock" the bobbin winder. After you put the bobbin case on it's peg, push the peg to the right until you hear a click. Then after you disengage the clutch, the bobbin will wind.

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
