The problem may be in the button hole lever sensor . Next time it stops try moving this lever up and down. if it works ,great. If it doesn't , well, the machine has at least a 2 year warranty on electronics.

I push the peddle down and all I get is beeping what is wrong with my 7442 singer


I would call Singer at 1-800-4singer and find out. I looked up your manual at www.singerco.com for free and don't see any mention of a beeping sound except on page 28. Your machine is a computerized one, not mechanical.

Electronic sewing machine (singer 7442) will not sew buttonhole


Ensure that you have the buttonhole lever all the way down until it doesn't go down anymore. This might sound like a silly fix, but it's actually one of the most common mistakes made by people using this(and other automatic buttonholing) machine.

My bobbin winder starts and then freezes and an alarm sounds-


Try to sew slower. In my sewing class the bobbin always freezes, and if I go slower it works better sometimes.
