Question about Singer 7422

1 Answer

I have a singer 7422. I am trying to wind the bobbin. It should be the easiest part and last time it was. Now when I turn it on nothing happens. I have the manual in front of me and have checked and rechecked that I"m doing everything it says. I can't figure it out. Machine is only a few months old and only been used a few times. Cheers Sam

To clarify, take the thread from the spool, through that little clip, loop it around the little metal button piece at the top (should have a diagram on top of the machine), then through one of the tiny holes in the upper side of a bobbin. Place the bobbin on the vertical bobbin winder pin/rod on top of the machine then be sure to snap that pin/rod all the way to the right to engage motor. Then try. Most of the time people forget to push the bobbin winder pin/rod to the right which leaves the machine in sewing mode rather than in bobbin winding mode. Easy mistake. ;)

Why won't my bobbin winder work

It could be the belt has snapped, or something else it out of adjustment. You can either get it fixed, or purchased an inexpensive bobbin winder for under $25 from WalMart online.

Cleaned machine - now can't turn wheel

Check to see if the bobbin winder on the top of the machine is over next to the handwheel, as it would be if you were winding thread onto an empty bobbin. The bobbin in the machine does not go up and down while you "fill" a bobbin.

Bobbin won't wind Singer 7422

Your problem lies with the main shaft that is to tight to release the bobbin winder mechanism, because of old grease and oil becoming sticky. A short term solution will be to remove the needle, in order not to hurt you, and then hold on to the needle bar with your left hand, while engaging the bobbin lever with your left hand. This will prevent the main shaft to rotate and your winder should work. In the long term, take it to your dealer to clean the oil and grease. You will not be able to open the machine casing yourselve, as you might damage the casing and or electronics.

Good luck!
