Question about Singer 7462 Mechanical Sewing Machine

2 Answers

I do not get any response from singer support center

A week ago, June 3rd, I bought a Singer 7462 electronic sewing machine at JO-ANN fabrics store, Hamden, CT. (Obviously I have my receipt).
I traveled with this machine to Israel, where, I had wrongly plugged the electricity to incorrect volt supply i.e. 230 and not 120.
Unluckily, while plugged it in and turn switch the "ON” position, the electricity had shut down.
As a distressing result – the machine does not work. Sure it is a very new one.
I will deeply appreciate if you inform me which warranty concerning such occurrence and what should I do to fix it? I will be bake in New haven, where I live, next week.
I s there any authorized service center at New Haven area I should attend?

Thank you for your support

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the damage to teh unit will not be covered under warranty. This would be considered customer damage. Warranties are there to cover manufacturing defects and problems. Using the wrong voltage for power is not a manufacturing issue. If ou explain our mistake, they may give you a price break on the repair, but they are not obligated to repair it for free. Your first contact should be with the store where you purchased the machine.

Good luck.

    Again, I'm sorry to give you the bad news. I am a warranty station for a number of products and unfortunately that is the way it works. Any ways,,, The cost will be determined by how much got fried when the incorrect voltage was introduced. Best case, the fuse is the problem. Worse case, the logic boards have gotten fried. Ask for an estimate first before you commit to any actual repair.

Where is the light bulb on singer model 7462?

Here is the parts diagram.
Page 4 the 3rd leftmost item 87502 is the LED light circuit board.

I would start with page 11 diagram to take off the arm/head end cover because that's most likely where it is, just above the needle and foot, slightly off to the side.

My sewing machine doesn't work properly.. after setting everything up it give the first stitch but then it doesn't stitch anymore... and I have what you call a bird-nest under my fabric.. don't know what...

I think that you are not threading it right, try this, totally rethread, now pull on the top thread with the presser foot up, it should pull smoothly, now put the presser foot down, pull top thread again, now it should barely move. This should seat your thread in the tension discs. I would also insert a new needle. (flat side facing the rear of the machine) If, you do not have your manual go to and down load one for free, plus you can enlarge the diagrams for easy reading. It is not a bad idea to save a copy to you computer, in case you misplace the paper copy. Singer customer service is very helpful, at 1-800-4singer. Good luck, I hope that you can get some happy hours sewing.

How do you remove cover from Singer 7462

I found that by turning the machine over on its back I could lift the front cover from the bottom and get it over the tension knob.
