    I have the exact same problem and it is very frustrating.

    I can not get the bobbin thread to pick up for anything.

    I just bought my machine yesterday

    please let me know if you find the solution!

I talked to Singer and they said it was a timing problem.
I had only had mine for a day and they told me to return it.

I have my machine threaded and it runs with no beeps however it is not sewing the material together


I'm wondering if you have the flat side of the needle in correctly. If your bobbin assembly is in the front of the machine, the flat side should be towards the back. Also, check to make sure your needle is ALL the way up in the needle clamp.

Top thread will not pick up bobbin thread on my model 7422


try a new needle--make sure it's the right needle for the fabric
being sewed.
try rethreading the machine top and bobbin --make sure to use
every thread guide
try a different bobbin
it's also possible that the machine could have a timing problem
and needs to be checked

here's a free manual if you need one just click on the link

have you tried changing the needle?
is the needle in backwards?
is the needle inserted all the way into the needle holder?
clean under needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or loose thread
did you hit something with the needle?

Machine won't pick up bobbin thread


I had something similar happen to me but when I put in a new needle, it worked fine. Your needle maybe slightly bent.

The top thread is not picking up the bobbin thread. Singer Model 7422


Check your needle and make sure it is not bent, needles should be replaced after about 8 hours of sewing and that they are the right size for your project. Also use the same weight of thread, do not mix ie. cotton or polyester. Then check your threading, did some thread get tangled? Or sneak out of a guide? Hope this helps.

My Singer Advance 7422 skips stitches intermittently. Looks like it does not pick up the bobbin thread sometimes. Any suggestions?


Change to a new needle appropriate for the fabric you will be sewing. Make sure the flat side of the needle shank faces to the back of the sewing machine.

Always thread the machine with the presser foot up as this will "seat" the thread into the tension control.

My Singer 7422 seems to be jammed. When I start to make a stitch, the thread from the needle gets caught on something on the bottom and the thread goes over the bobbin.

Bobbin case turns in its place


You need to remove the needle plate and take out the bobbin case. Examine it for any rough spots, scratches or burrs. When you find them, you will need to remove them with an emery stick and then buff it with very fine steel wool. Reinstall the bobbin case and the needle plate. Put the bobbin in the machine so that it turns counter clockwise when you pull the thread. Rethread the top of the machine and change the needle. Hold the needle thread , turn the handwheel and see if the bobbin thread is picked up without snagging anyplace. If it's okay, sew away.
