    I have the same problem. Although, I am stationed overseas and do not have access to Singer support. Does anyone know how I can fix this?

    Having the same issue. When using the automatic bobbing clutch feature it's not disengaging the motor from the needle. As soon as the machine begins winding the bobbin it stops and beeps. Haven't been able to determine why it's not disengaging the needle.

Sounds like there is thread around the bobbin winder shaft and the machine is unable to continue winding, needs stripping and looking at. This is not something you should attempt yourself unless you know what you are doing. A reasonable sewing machine tech should be able to sort it out in a few minutes.

Your machine needs to go to dealer to rectify the problem. Your machine sensors are telling the machine that the needle bar is not idle while winding the bobbin and the flashing lights is a warning message. Nothing serious and your dealer should be able to fix it in 30 minutes. You need to remove the covers and hand wheel, so best to leave it to the experts

While winding the bobbin my machine stopped threading and all the lights on the front started flashing. I turned off the machine and turned it back on and it did the same thing.


Turn the machine back on, slide the bobbin winder all the way over to the left, and push the reverse sewing button 3 times. That should reset the machine.

I have a Singer 7462 and when I try to load a bobin, the machine makes a nasty grinding noise and the needle slowly moves up and down and ultimately all of the lights on the stitch selection panel flash...


Ok, this is pretty common. Disengage the machine (as if you were winding a bobbin) run the machine at high speed for 5 minutes.
The motor is dirty and this will clean it out. You should hear the pitch of the motor change as the minutes go by.

We have a Touch & Sew 640 that we ARE trying to get running, and we need a manual, and specifically how do w thread the bobbin.


To wind the bobbin, select straight stitch, thread the machine up as normal making sure the presser foot is up, open the slide plate, push the little button over to raise the winder, take the thread and wind it round the presser foot screw a few times, press on the foot control slowly and the bobbin will wind, when you have enough, stop, close the slide plate to drop the winder down, pull the threads to the back and start sewing. for manuals try www.tandtrepair.com

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.
