Question about Singer 7462 Mechanical Sewing Machine

Lights flashing and beeping.

Every time I push the foot petal, the machine beeps and all the lights flash. There's nothing stuck inside, and the machine is clean. What's wrong?

    I took my machine with me on an airplane and now when i try to sew wit it it makes one stitch and then all the lights start flashing and it stops. I have made sure that my threads match and that everything is threaded right, as well as the BH Button being up. It is driving me nuts because I can sew with it by turning the handle, but it wont itself past one stitch.

I had a similar problem and called 1 800 4Singer. The BH lever(next to the needle) had fallen. I pushed it up and everything worked fine again. It seems if it's down the least, the machine won't work. Hope this helps.

Trying to thread bobbin and viewed manual several times. singer model 7258. screen first flashes C3 and then ][. cannot find troublr shooting codes in manual.

Why do I keep getting a C3 error (accompanied by lots of beeps) when I turn on my machine?The C3 error as well as the beeping when you turn on your machine indicates the foot control plug is not fully pushed into the sewing machine. Turn off your sewing machine and push the foot contol plug into the machine fully. Turn your sewing machine back on.

Janome dks 100 se - it keeps beeping when I press the foot pedal and I have to do this several times before it starts sewing. It doesn't beep when using the stop/start button and is sewing fine

Same machine and model and same problem. It’s really irritating. It’s not the bobbin as the screen flashes worth the foot pedal. I’ll look at the tension but given how often it beeps and on so many different projects with different thread and tension it seems to be a fault of some kind... searching for a fix...

Hi! I have a janome dsk30 that keeps beeping with the foot control light flashing. The only way to clear it seems to be to unplug the control foot and plug in again -any ideas?

Sounds like it is getting too hot if it is OK after unplugging. Is something stuck in your foot pedal? Give it a clean and hoover as dust and threads can get stuck there. Good luck

My Rose sewing machine will not sew. It beeps and the presser foot icon flashes. I have re threaded, re bobbined, re placed the presser foot, and I think I have cleared the memory, but I am not really...

That light means you need to lower the presser foot. It cannot sew until the foot is lowered. The lever to lower the foot is behind the needle area on the back.
