Question about Singer 7462 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

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 and the machine stops.

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.

    It must be really dirty. I have tried this and it didn't seem to make a difference.

    Ok then it's time to get serious!
    Get some degreaser (I use carb cleaner but Mean Green works too)
    Spray the degreaser on all metal to metal moving parts. Let the machine sit for about half an houi. Now take a hairdryer and run it on a medium heat over these areasfor about 5 minutes oer area.

    Try running the machine again. Let me know if this works!

What would cause my machinge to make a loud grinding noise when sewing?


Listen to it while you turn the large handle slowly to hear where it is binding. it may be a bent part that you will be able to see on the outside or something internal, possibly a bad bearing. This will require a shop to repair.

Model 7462. When trying to fill a bobbin (plastic) the machine starts then stops with all the lights flashing. The needle continues to move up and down while I try to fill the bobbin. The buttonhole...


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

I was sewing along with no problem and then all of a sudden it jammed. I can't move the needle up or down without a lot of force.


There is probably thread jammed in the raceway area, take out the bobbin case and raceway if it is a front load bobbin

Singer Touch & Sew 7462 - Needle hits bottom of bobbin case


With the needle hitting the bobbin case , it sounds like it might be out of time. Which I am sorry to say is not an easy at-home fix.

Model 8280. The thread on the bottom keeps bunching up. It is a horrible mass of thread. Then, it stops moving. Can you help me?


I had the same problem and I tried everything including removing the bobin case, cleaning out lint, changing the needle, adjusting the tension but it did not work. Then I finally tried reloading the bobin thread, making sure to load the bobin according the manual directions....and the problem was solved...no more tangles... just a nice even stitch...yeah!

Sewing machine, strange noise


Is the needle in right? There is a front and back to a needle. Also is it the right needle for the machine?

My Singer 2639 Bobbin case pops up out of position after few stitches and needle hits case, Singer says it needs retiming and take it to repair. I cannot continue paying repair as this happens too often.


Hi, I used to have the same problem. I pulled the whole bobin casing out, cleaned it oiled it. When I put it back in, I made sure the actual bobin was turing the right direction so the cotton didnt snag and pull casing up.

If you havent already tried this give it a go.Its amazing how much gunk gets in there.

How do you change the belt on a Singer 7462?


Hi,
By removing the top cover, or the turning wheel cover,
you will be able to see the belt.
If the belt is not broken, then try to adjust the belt tension,
by adjusting either the height of the motor, or the tension wheel.
