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.

I have a Singer Model 9022 sewing machine. The bobbin case came out and I cannot get back in place.

Kent581 is correct. On my machine the metal part the bobbin case needed to be under could pivot. It had turned so that when I put it in like normal the case wasn't under anything. I simply had to turn it back and everything was good to go!

What is the price for singer 7442

I have seen it listed RRP $US199 but for $139 on Amazon. However, buying from bricks and mortar store gives you someone to go back to after purchase if you need help with your machine, something I have found I needed in the past.

customer reviews for this machine here if you are considering buying it.

I am sewing upholstry fabric together in a pillow with piping and heavy zipper. Thread will not go through fabric correctly and there are no stitches.

Hi. Unthread and rethread everything, clean out any lint, and oil the machine. This, plus using the right size needle (size 16 or higher) and thread (heavy duty), should do the trick.

Let me know if this solves the problem, ok?

Good luck!

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.
