Question about Singer 7442 Mechanical Sewing Machine
My black bobbin case came out of my machine while I was sewing. I tryed to put back in and broke back off. So I have replaced it. But I am unable to get it back in. And I don't want to break this one. HELP. I have spent many hours trying to get this one in.
If this is the machine I think it is the bobbin case is completely round as opposed to half round. If it is half round ignore the following.
Remove the presser foot and then the two screws which hold the needle plate. Lift off the needle plate and then lift out the old bobbin case. Clean all the lint out and then insert the bobbin case so that the less round part of it is to the back and the lip around the bobbin case is resting on the lip around the hook. Turn the hand wheel a few times to be sure it is working smoothly and not binding. Replace the Needle plate , bobbin and presser foot. Insert a new needle,thread the machine, Check your tension to be sure it is working correctly, turn the hand wheel again to be sure it is picking up the thread without binding and sew.
