Question about Singer 7422

Open Question

Bobbin thread doesn't catch.

I have a brand new Singer 7422 that has never worked. Unfortunately the warranty expired before I ever tried to use it, so I'm stuck fixing it myself. First the needle was ripping the fabric. I jammed it up as far into the holder as I could, and now it seems to be doing better. However, now the bobbin won't catch. I'm thinking that maybe the problems are related, but I can't find anything in the manual or online that offers a solution. Any help would be appreciated!

    Our machine worked the first time out of the box, but hasn't picked up the bobbin thread since.  We tried to return it, but of course the 3 months had passed, so now we are faced with getting it to a repair shop.  How do you change the timing

I assume you checked to see there are no needle bits in the bobbin case holder.
Without looking at the machine it is difficult to diagnose the problem. It could be any one or a combination of problems, timing, needle bar height, damage to the hook and base etc.
I strongly suggest you have it looked at by a sewing machine tech.

Make sure you have the machine threaded for the bobbin and not threaded through the sewing path. Also, check to make sure that the bobbin is pushed directly against the post as far as possible.

SOURCE: Bobbin won't wind Singer 7422

Your problem lies with the main shaft that is to tight to release the bobbin winder mechanism, because of old grease and oil becoming sticky. A short term solution will be to remove the needle, in order not to hurt you, and then hold on to the needle bar with your left hand, while engaging the bobbin lever with your left hand. This will prevent the main shaft to rotate and your winder should work. In the long term, take it to your dealer to clean the oil and grease. You will not be able to open the machine casing yourselve, as you might damage the casing and or electronics.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Singer 6267 self winding bobbin winds around shaft under

I just figured out why my bobbine was winding on shaft instead of on the bobbin. first of all make sure the bobbin is setting up high enough, top of bobbin needs to be a fraction higher then the bobbin shuttle, next check to make sure there are no burrs on the bobbin, then make sure that the thear is catching in the groove (**** in top) of the bobbin. In order to get mine to wind i had to lett the tread go down and then slip the thread in the groove. also remember to leave the pressure foot up do not put it down. let me know if this helps.

Light not working on singer 7422


Unfortunately, the 7422 has an LED light that is harder to replace. You may want to take the machine for service. Here are a couple of links to the light bulb assembly: https://www.singeronline.com/libuas5.html or https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/led-light-circuit-board-singer-87502.aspx . I'm not sure how much of the machine has to be disassembled to take out the old assembly and put in the new wiring.

I hope this helps.

Singer 5500. Hand wheel won't turn, stuck solid. When pushing the pedal, machine says C4 error. Was able to successfully wind a bobbin. Machine is brand new but was in stock for a long time. Help!


regardless of how long it was in stock, you purchased it as brand new so there will be a warranty on it
take it to a service agent and have it checked out

I need the proper instructions on how to adjust the timing on my 7422 singer advance sewing machine. I used the buttonhole ...and ever since the machine is missing stiches and half of the other stiches...


You can try a whole new needle, inserted with the flat side facing away from you. Sometimes a burr or slight bend causes you to miss stitches. I would not attempt to set the timing myself as you may cause some damage. You can also call Singer customer service at 1-1800-4singer and they can advise you. Be very cautious of advice on the internet.
