Question about Singer 7430 Sewing Machine

3 Answers

I just purchased a used Singer 7430. I am trying to print letters and it will only sew the top half of the letters within a name. I can see the needle marks for the lower half, but the thread does not pull through. The top looks fine. What am I doing wrong?

    The answers I got are all normal things that I would do before sending an email. I don't need to pay $6.00 to have someone tell me to take it to a repair shop. I was hoping there was something else that could be adjusted somewhere that I am missing. I took it to Joann's Fabric and she cleaned it all out and tried to adjust, but said it looks like the bobbin case and she is not sure how to fix that.

    I am using the recommended thread and needle and the thread in bobbin is from same spool. I guess I just need to take in for repair. I was hoping someone would have a quick fix. Thanks for your help.

Sometimes this happens if you're not using the right size needle or the right thread.

    Also you have to use the same weight thread in the bobbin as on top and it has to be the correct weight of thread.

    I just saw the comment you posted 30 minutes ago that you had taken the machine to JoAnn's and the lady said it was the bobbin case. Sorry. When the questions are posed to experts we don't get to see any previous solutions or any comments until after we have posted our own solutions and then go back into the question to try and post additional comments.

Hi,

If there is a tension in the string this problem could arise see if the tensions are not present.

1. Check if top thread unwinds and feeds up well. If it falls ? it creates too high tread tension by not giving the thread to unwind properly.

2. Check that the needle is good, not sticky, and allows the thread to come through it easily. It should have a large enough eye.

3)Hitting the bobbin case may have knocked the timing off and the shuttle may have to be replaced.so if you have hands on it replace it or take it to the service centre.




post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Where are the sensors located in singer 7430?


Hello,
These machine s are mechanical wonders, always have your machine serviced by trained technician. End user servicing is not recommended, and if needed, parts will not be available to end users so take your machine in for service, repair and adjustments to sew perfectly.

Please explain to me how to adjust the numerical, digital buttons on my 7430 Singer sewing machine?


I just took a look at your user's manual, and boy--you're right, and I've been a computer systems engineer for about 30 years!

Actually, it's easier to figure out by DOING rather than looking at the description on page 35. Basically, selection is divided into two categories--utility, that is, stitches you would use for ordinary sewing, like stretch stitches, zigzag stitches, straight stitch, buttonholes, etc. That is located on the left column, with the arrow keys used for navigation in the middle. The display only shows 5 patterns at a time, so to see all of them, you have to keep pressing the down arrow. Once you have selected the stitch itself, you can then select the stitches width and length, and if it's available for that particular stitch, you can mirror (flip) the stitch, and use a twin needle (if it's available for that design)

The decorative and letter stitches are selected on the right column, and work he same way--they are displayed 5 at a time, etc, and selecting stitch width and length, mirror, and twin needle. However, additionally, you can choose to have the pattern sewn once (the default) or continuously.

I hope that helps!

My singer sewing machine 7430 keeps acting like its catching on something when you turn the handwheel. Also, while sewing all of a sudden the needle hit the plate and broke x2


Your machine sounds like it needs retiming unless you are using a needle bigger than a size 16, I can attach instructions if you want to do it yourself.

My Singer 7430 is not picking up the bobbin thread. My husband and I have spent the better half of our day trying to get the machine to work. We have changed out the needles and the threads. Tried...


Try entirely rethreading your machine. Top thread and bobbin thread. Sometimes the thread is just some place it's not supposed to be or it is not in the tension springs all the way. Also check to make sure the needle you are using is the correct length for your machind. Let me know how it goes.

The thread breaks a lot when sewing.


Use a good brand of thread and not old or cheap thread.

Thread as indicated in the manual (always with the presser foot up).
