Question about Singer 7430 Sewing Machine

1 Answer

I have a Singer #7430 hardly used, but I thought the needle should be changed as it sounded dull, now i cannot get the needle to stay in when i start sewing the needle falls out and i have broken 3 needles. do you think screw that hold the needle in is no good? I have the flat side facing to the back and i can see it is up far enough in the shaft where it should be.

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.

I think the timing is off on my singer 7430 -- it keeps breaking needles and I can see where the needle hits the bottom of the bobbin casing when it is in the fully down position -- any quick fix?


Drop-in bobbin?

Refer to the maintenance section of the manual for cleaning.

Raise the needle to it's highest position and remove the bobbin and bobbin case.

Clean the shuttle and replace the bobbin case, noting the graphic in the instruction manual for aligning the case into the shuttle.

Turn the handwheel to see if the needle now clears the outer edge of the bobbin case.

Our Singer sewing machine model 7430 will not stay in time. How do you time it and have it stay in time? It doesn't appear to be a timing belt problem. The machine is new, only a year old with limited...


No timing belt on machine ok, If machine keeps throwing time, the use of the machine is something I would question first or whoever done timing from the start. Finding where the machine is out of time could be the needle bar or hook shaft under unit...when you needle is going up where does the needle pass the cusp of the needle,,, The cusp is the part of the needle that swurves in
