Customer Reviews

I took it to a SINGER service center.

You have to keep moving it and trying it out to get the stitch spacing and needle position where you want them.
Rebecca Fletcher
Yes, I've adjusted the tension up or down.

After reading a lot of on line reviews, I got this machine in September 2007. Funny that at the time I could hardly find many negative reviews and the ones I did find were people who had a beef with Singer or a weird fluke that made their machine break. So I took the plunge. I'd had another Singer that lasted a good 10 years with sporadic use. I'm certainly no seamstress. This was more or less for easy projects and simple sewing. It was easy to get started on the machine. The buttons for the various stitches are great. The horizontal placement of the thread seemed like a great idea. The instruction book was clear. It is easy to perform maintenance on the machine as the screws are easily accessible. That's about where my joy ends and my complaints begin.

First, the lighting stinks. Second, it's LOUD. If you get to pumping away at a long line of stitching, it's like a jackhammer. Then there's the godforsaken foot pedal. Irritating? You bet! It seems to either go slow or super fast and is clunky and unnatural. I have to use a bare foot to be able to grasp it with my toes to massage it to go a decent speed without jerking into super speed. Trying to get it to maintain a comfortable speed is hard work. If you step on the pedal and remove your foot, and then try to step on it again again right away, the pedal fails to work at all if you haven't allowed the needle unit to stop. It can be super annoying.

The last complaint I will voice is the fact that I am having one heck of a time getting thread that agrees with the machine. Yes, I've cleaned the machine. Yes, I've oiled the machine. Yes, I've adjusted the tension up or down. Yes, I've changed needles...bought good thread...am using "Singer" products...sacrificed a goat and did a rain dance...

i've had this machine for about 7 months, and i've had tons of problems with birdnesting and the bobbin.

the "auto-tension" feature is hardly automatic. the "auto" setting is only good for 2 layers of light- to moderate-weight fabrics. forget trying to sew boucle or more than 2 layers of denim with this machine. stick to broadcloth and thinner denims. of course, you can only sew these fabrics if the bobbin works.

the bobbin cradle (where you lay the top-loading bobbin) broke yesterday afternoon, and now i've gotta buy a replacement. i was sewing two layers of boucle with mild thread, and the machine jammed. i thought, "well, that's normal for this machine," and went about un-jamming it. when i went back to sew, it did it again, something that hardly happens for another 10 minutes. after a disassembly of the bobbin area, i determined a piece on the bobbin cradle had broken off. "great," i thought, "now i need to buy a replacement cradle."

this machine is not worth the money. if you want something that breaks, go with a lesser model and save some money. replacement parts aren't cheap on this, either, since it's a relatively new model. my '78 Singer tears through thicker fabrics with light and heavy threads like nobody's business, but this newer model breaks its own parts within 7 months of being set up. my advice: stay away from Model 7462.

For the new or experienced sewer, this is a wonderful electronic machine with great features, but not a huge price. Better quality than the Singer 7442 (made for the discount market)--pay the extra $20.00 for the 7462 and get a much better quality sewing machine. I still have my Singer 237 from the late 1960's, and I plan to keep the new Singer 7462 machine for 30 years--or until my eyes or body give out!!! Currently, the machine can be purchased on EBAY for $199.00 total with no shipping costs and no taxes through June 30, 2006. During June, the Singer 7462 comes with a free $40.00 quilting package of special sewing feet and attachments.

After my 20 yr. old Kenmore sewing machine died, I was in a market for a new machine. This, being a SINGER caught my eye. I mean, my Mom has had her SINGER for about 40+ yrs; go figure. Next the affordable price, and the variety of lovely stitches made it even more appealing. The machine worked great until the 1 yr. warranty expired... Then small things started happening; The bobbin winder starts reloading the bobbins unevenly, it starts to bird-nest the bobbin thread, thread starts breaking, needles breaking. No matter how many time I checked the tension, nothing worked. I was sewing 2 layers of cotton calico fabric together; light duty "cute" stuff. Understand this is not my first time around the block with a sewing machine. I oiled it, cleaned it, ALWAYS use good quality thread. Nothing would please this machine. I took it to a SINGER service center. Guess what? It will cost me $90 to service this $150+ machine that is less than 2 yrs. old!!!!! While it worked it made beautiful stitches.
PROS - It makes an excellant door stop, or target at a gun range.
CONS - It's a door stop, or only good for a target at a gun range.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By ahmediyah on November 2, 2009
i am an seamstress, experienced in garment making and a variety of crafts. ive been sewing almost ten years. for most of that time i had an older, heavy duty kenmore that would sew a tree if i asked it to (mind you i never did).

what i like:
auto threader, decorative stitches, the led light,

what i dont like:
that said the 7462 is a very lightweight delicate machine. it does amazing decorative stitches with adjustable length and width, but it doesnt Like to do them. the machine whines, tensions have to be adjusted just so, threading has to be to a T, etc. that is a major discouragement b/c i originally bought it for those stitches.
also, ive already had to adjust the bobbin tension (even though it says you wont have to) and it sounds like it needs to be oiled after a week.

ive already sewed a couple of garments in the short time ive had it, besides numerous smaller projects. overall... i like what it can do, but wish it was better manufactured.
