Wont Start (brand new) Just Beeps!

I got the Singer 7442 Sewing Machine for Christmas and i took it out put it all together did everything it said and then when i go to start sewing and push on the footer it just beeps. Doesnt do ANYTHING! Doesnt move doesnt hum it just goes *beep beep* and i thought it may have been an operator error problem but ive had friends try that sew all the time and my mother as well and we cant get it to do anything. Mind you its brand new and i havent gotten to use it now once because it wont work.

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.

Singer 7442 will not sew


Had the same problem as mommyb2 - it was the bobbin spindel was in the wrong position. Push bobbin spindel to the left and it works for sewing.
Have the same problem winding my first bobbin - pushed spindel to the right to engage bobbin fuction and the machine locks up and wont wind the bobbin. Irig did you bring it in for repair? I'm thinking its broke - which **** as mine is a brand new machine

No Manual with my Singer


Sears sells the Singer 7442, which is pretty much the same...
They have a link to the owner manual

Try that, at least it's free.

Singer 7442 is Loud!


Check to see that lint or oil has not collected on the hook or needle bar. Always use a good quality sewing machine oil. A damaged needle can also be the cause of a noisy machine - insert a new needle.
