Question about Singer 7422
I broke a needle while sewing and ever since I put a new replacement needle in, the bobbin thread bunches up around the bobbin holder after 1 or 2 stitches. Also there is a slight "clunking" sound when the top needle comes down. I think something is out of line. Is this something I can fix by myself? The replacement needle has been put in correctly with the flat side to the back. Thanks.
I assume you checked to see there are no needle bits in the bobbin case holder.
Without looking at the machine it is difficult to diagnose the problem. It could be any one or a combination of problems, timing, needle bar height, damage to the hook and base etc.
I strongly suggest you have it looked at by a sewing machine tech.
