You may have the needle in wrong. Check to be sure it's positioned correctly, The groove down the center of the needle should face the front of the machine. And be certain the needle is pushed completely up in its holder. If neither of these work, you might just double check the bobbin!

    I am having the same issue. The needle and the bobbin are both in correctly but nothing happens like the maual suggests when I turn the nob to bring the needle down to grab the bobbin thread. I assume the bobbin should turn to draw the thread towards the needle but this isn't happening. Is my machine broken in some way? I've only used it twice and haven't had this problem before.

Top thread will not pick up bobbin thread on my model 7422


try a new needle--make sure it's the right needle for the fabric
being sewed.
try rethreading the machine top and bobbin --make sure to use
every thread guide
try a different bobbin
it's also possible that the machine could have a timing problem
and needs to be checked

here's a free manual if you need one just click on the link

The top thread is not picking up the bobbin thread. Singer Model 7422


Check your needle and make sure it is not bent, needles should be replaced after about 8 hours of sewing and that they are the right size for your project. Also use the same weight of thread, do not mix ie. cotton or polyester. Then check your threading, did some thread get tangled? Or sneak out of a guide? Hope this helps.

My Singer Advance 7422 skips stitches intermittently. Looks like it does not pick up the bobbin thread sometimes. Any suggestions?


Change to a new needle appropriate for the fabric you will be sewing. Make sure the flat side of the needle shank faces to the back of the sewing machine.

Always thread the machine with the presser foot up as this will "seat" the thread into the tension control.

My Singer 7422 seems to be jammed. When I start to make a stitch, the thread from the needle gets caught on something on the bottom and the thread goes over the bobbin.

Bobbin case turns in its place


You need to remove the needle plate and take out the bobbin case. Examine it for any rough spots, scratches or burrs. When you find them, you will need to remove them with an emery stick and then buff it with very fine steel wool. Reinstall the bobbin case and the needle plate. Put the bobbin in the machine so that it turns counter clockwise when you pull the thread. Rethread the top of the machine and change the needle. Hold the needle thread , turn the handwheel and see if the bobbin thread is picked up without snagging anyplace. If it's okay, sew away.
